I’m not bothered by this.
Let’s have a little fun at the Washington Post’s expense. Maybe that ISIS Caliphate coulda been a democracy, and now one of its leaders has died in darkness. It’s all relative.
Perhaps ISIS was attracting global refugees, interested in fighting for change in a harsh climate of oppressive Western violence.

A quote from this piece over at the Atlantic: From The Atlantic: Samuel Huntington’s Death And Life’s Work
“Although the professional soldier accepts the reality of never-ending and limited conflict, “the liberal tendency,” Huntington explained, is “to absolutize and dichotomize war and peace.” Liberals will most readily support a war if they can turn it into a crusade for advancing humanistic ideals. That is why, he wrote, liberals seek to reduce the defense budget even as they periodically demand an adventurous foreign policy.”
