How do you deter a suicidal man? You can not threaten his life, you may not even be able to threaten his family as far too many of these are happy to bring their entire civilization with them. You may be able to extend your reach in to the afterlife, threaten to defile their corpse to insure them hell, see if that works, maybe it will, maybe it won’t. Deterrence is idiotic and our enemies are breaking a technological threshold, with Russian, Chinese and Leftist American help, where only Nuclear deterrence will matter and only so far as Mutually Assured Destruction is concerned. If only Mutually Assured Destruction would actually Deter a Suicide Bomber, but alas, Mutually Assured Destruction is their goal. How to deal? Preemption, we must rediscover the justification for this and it only matters that we see ourselves as justified. World Opinion, a sixth of which is our enemy, should not matter at all.
