ABSTRACT
The article claims that in order to win the War on Terror the United States must go beyond rhetoric and directly confront the enemy's ideology, infrastructures, and sponsors. It describes this murderous ideology as spreading rapidly and likely to become the dominant idiom in Islam. The strides made by Islamic extremism in the West are referred to. The article discusses Saudi sponsorship of radical Islam and refers to Pakistan as the premier breeding ground of terrorists. It concludes that the U.S. must admit that its policies toward Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are misguided and counterproductive, and should treat Islamists and their networks as those guilty of criminal sedition and incitement to murder.
