What We’re Fighting Against

Tacitus has a disturbing reminder about what we’re up against in the war on terror.

Things like this remind me of a brilliant poem by WH Auden:

There will be no peace.
Fight back, then, with such courage as you have
And every unchivalrous dodge you know of,
Clear on your conscience on this:
Their cause, if they had one, is no thing to them now;
They hate for hate’s sake.

One wonders if Auden had any idea of how prescient that poem would become…
