What’s the best way to counter Islamic State? What would be the Rumsfeld plan?
The first thing you do is recognize that this isn’t going to be won with bullets. The basic principle of economics is if you want more of something, you reward it. If you want less, you penalize it. And what has to be done is the U.S. is going to have to provide leadership in the non-muslim world and the Muslim world to get a coalition of people who are willing to find ways to squeeze off the money that’s going to them.
