#1 "It misses that these groups are part of a global movement that persists beyond.....

It "misses" nothing. The Global War On Terrorism (GWOT) was intentionally deleted from our lexicon by Obama and Co.

#3 During WWII a massive military build-up and mobilization got underway in the United States. New car production was halted and factories were converted to the war effort. Hundred, possibly thousands of new factories both large and small sprang to life. Employment boomed for both men and women during the war years. After the war ended, most of these factories were shuttered.

As victory approached, some of the former defense workers were heard to have said, "I hope the war never ends."

~ Our business is war, and business is good.

Total victory is the enemy of 'endless wars.' It always has been.

#4 As victory approached, some of the former defense workers were heard to have said, "I hope the war never ends."

Coming out of the Great Depression, with its lack of jobs and excess of hunger, the anxiety is understandable. And as I recall, a small depression did follow the end of the war, as factories switched over to civilian products and masses of demobilized troops flooded the employment market.

#5 the jihadi movement's reprioritization away from attacking Western countries toward establishing itself in local communities is a sign they have weakened.

However, once they have established themselves locally, they will attack globally.

#6 We really should ask ourselves how the Romans would handle them. I'm sure the answer is there.
