'Bin Laden-ism' and the Long War

Brendan Miniter, at OpinionJournal.com, tells us that the Pentagon knows that is has a new Cold War--which they call the Long War--to fight. And, like Marcus Valerius Messala, commander of the garrison of Jerusalem (as portrayed by Stephen Boyd in Billy Wyler's film Ben-Hur), they know how to fight an idea: with another idea. The idea is simple: freedom. And yes, part of the pushing of that idea is disaster relief--like what we provided after the Great Pakistan Earthquake and the Great Sumatra Earthquake and Tsunami. And all this is in the Quadrennial Defense Review!

Great work.
