The fire-ants analogy

There’s an absolutely fascinating and, mostly, temperate and reasoned discussion going on in the comments to this post at Winds of Change.  Keep reading.  It gets better especially starting at around question #31.  There are lots of interesting observations from several parties which, oddly, becomes more civil as the conversation progresses (an unusual dynamics in blog comments threads).

Check particularly comment #63.  In that comment the commenter analogizes the War on Terror to the fight against fire-ants in and around Houston, Texas.  His basic message is that the obvious strategy isn’t always the best one and courses of action have secondary effects.

Check it out.
