Tom Holsinger On Jacksonian War Fighting

Tom Holsinger, looking at what Walter Russell Mead famously labelled the Jacksonian faction of foreign policy in the US, sees the overthrow of threatening terrorist-supporting regimes as a way to avoid an even greater fury against their populations.

The greatest danger is that further major terrorist attacks in America might cause its people to erupt in Jacksonian fury, as opposed to repeated minor attacks which would result only in expulsion of all non-citizen Muslims. Genocide would require identifiable targets, though, so prior elimination of regimes giving terrorists geographic sanctuaries would do much to avoid the possibility.
