In the wake of the Boston bombing, we need to have a national conversation about whether there's such a thing as "good" terrorism. Consider Washington's support for the proto-Taliban against the Soviets or the Chechen separatists against the current Russian state.
And while Boston was gripped with fear, Secretary of State John Kerry was overseas trying to drum up support for the destruction of Syria as a unified political entity by any means necessary. That nation is presently attracting violent Salafist mercenaries from across the Arab world, some of whom just recently took two Syrian bishops hostage.
What's it all for? Qatar and Turkey wish to construct a pipeline across a post-Assad Syria, and Washington, I suppose, is pleased to see plans for a competing Iranian pipeline scuttled.
I would argue that allowing profit motives to dominate our foreign policy has nothing to do with making America safer and, in some cases, achieves quite the opposite.
