When the commentariat doesn't get it...

...The Long War on Terror

First, the bald fatalism of the piece--"since we can't do anything about terror, we might as well grin and bear it." Second, the idea that xenophobia, however bad that may be, is somehow a worse response than dying at the hands of teorrists. Third, carrying on with the canard that deprivation breeds terror, even though recent attacks, such as the one in Bangldesh, show again and again that there is little connection between the two.
