The "Recruiting More Terrorists" Myth Continues

It's the salient myth of those against defeating Islamo-Arab imperialism - "we create more terrorists than we kill" and its variant, that when America (or Israel) defend itself, "we've given the terrorists a perfect recruiting tool." Yet nowhere in history is there one example of anything like this happening - nowhere is there any example of the enemy gaining recruits or strength because the US fights back; on the contrary, the pattern has always been that the enemy only gains strength when it sees we won't fight back.

Yet The Man On The Way Up buys this nonsense. The piece asks what planet Obama is from - it certainly wasn't from the planet this sci-fi icon came from - he would have told off Obama and taken charge of the situation.
