The slaughter in Orlando was the occasion of perverse PR when the shooter claimed to be in sympathy with ISIS. Whether or not he had ever been in touch with the terrorist group, his statement was a pledge of allegiance to savages who use any method of pain and killing to get their way. One can imagine the communications person for ISIS walking taller this morning and commenting to his fellow terrorists that ISIS needs more such demonstrations of power. Sunday morning is the reason why the Islamic State must be exterminated before its influence spreads to more lone wolves. There is no negotiation, communication or other non-violent approach that will work. In this world, there are people who are not amenable to persuasion of any kind other than violence..
