The war continues. It may continue for decades more.
"May there be made known among the nations, before our eyes, vengeance for the spilled blood of Your servants."

The good thing about fighting Islamic terrorism is that it creates its own feedback loop. Anytime you are misguided enough to think they are normal human beings they will disabuse you. And the trajectory is corrected. The important thing is to stay the course, in Iraq and elsewhere, until this movement is utterly, utterly destroyed.
