What is it going to take to stop the current wave of terrorist madness threatening to sweep the world?
I fear the worst.
I fear it will be a Hiroshima- or Nagasaki-style of bombing by one of the major superpowers, reacting to an attack on their soil.
A moment of irrational anger, and to hell with the collateral damage . . . boom . . . thousands upon thousands upon thousands of people vaporized in Syria or Iraq in a flash, leaving radiation fallout that will drift far and wide . . .
Yes, they will kill the leader of ISIS and his deluded band of losers in the flash that shakes the world, leaving the lone wolf terrorists around the world with no master to serve. They will crawl back under the rocks, and we’ll never hear from them again.
And the world might actually be peaceful for some years, as we pause on the anniversaries of the big one . . .
