The war between Western civilization and Islam has been hot for half a century. Very soon it will become something our grandparents will instantly recognize: total war.
The only question I have is how many millions we are prepared to lose before we decide to fight. Five thousand plus and counting KIA since 2001 and we aren't near ready yet.
I have heard it said "We can't kill a billion people". Strangely enough, nobody ever wonders if the Islamists have any doubts along those lines.
