P.J. O’Rourke on Fighting Islamic Extremists

In a generally terrible piece that is nothing but a hit on the Russian television network RT, perhaps by accident, O'Rourke does make a keen observation about fighting Islamic terrorists:
Fighting Islamic extremists is like battling self-destructive, insane, violent homeless people. It’s all well and good to snap them with drones, crackle them with airstrikes, and pop them into Gitmo. But it’s a little disheartening to know that, if we leave them alone, they’ll all eventually kill each other anyway. The last lunatic standing will light off his suicide vest to canoodle with 72 virgins in paradise.
