What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?


Overwhelming force is the only recourse when our nation is directly threatened by extremists, but combating the radicalization of extremists is an ideological battle that can only be fought by our rhetoric, our religious tolerance, and our respect for the sovereignty of nations. No amount of communications monitoring can accurately predict when the next extremist will drive through a crowd or commandeer an airplane. One step towards defusing the extremists’ belief that the United States is a party to a holy war against Islam is to abide by the wisdom of our founding fathers and strictly uphold the principle of separation of church and state. The US dollar is the standard unit of currency for trade of commodities, is used by non-US companies in globalized markets, is the world’s foremost reserve currency, and is coveted by individuals around the globe as a hedge against inflation, and every bill we print has a bold statement on the back linking the US to Judeo-Christian ideology.
