Does the world really want to live without terrorists?

Jim Geraghty:
Go down the list - Beslan, Madrid, the British consulate in Istanbul, the Jordanian hotel bombings, Bali, 9/11, the U.S.S. Cole, the Marine Barracks in Lebanon, the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon, the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania... terrorists slaughter people, and only among the impacted community do you hear the response, "do whatever you have to do in order to eliminate the threat." Everywhere else, it's "this is terrible, but let's remember proportionality... Let's remember restraint. Let's not let this turn into an all out war."

Hard to disagree.
