Hawk Columnist: ‘To save America, we need another 9/11’

At first I though he was kidding, until I looked at some of his past writings.

Stu Bykofsky, columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News, is hoping for another major terror attack on the US. He lists the likely targets for al-Qaeda, hoping they will take him up on his offerings: “The Golden Gate Bridge. Mount Rushmore. Chicago’s Wrigley Field. The Philadelphia subway system. The U.S. is a target-rich environment for al Qaeda.”

Bykofsky argues that we have lost the will to fight that united us after 9/11. He wants the hawks of the left and right to stop attacking each other and unite for bigger and better wars. And he sees an attack by al-Qaeda as the force that will do it. He is probably correct that such an attack will spur the War Party, but neither such an attack nor the resulting wars are things to hope for.
