2. The fruits of our "War on Terror."

This is more of the fruits of our unending "War on Terror." By fighting militant Muslim fundamentalists everywhere around the World we could find them for nearly fifteen years (and still not defeating them) we have elevated their kind to the level of heroes and martyrs in the eyes of many of their fellow believers. We have literally done their recruiting for them.

If we now become involved with the French in West Africa as well, it may only stiffen long-term resistance to the already shaky government of Mali and increase the suffering of a people hard hit by this war. Surely there must be a better way to deal with this situation other than directly involving our military?
