Eventually, War

Put 3 points on a piece of paper. Draw a line through them. Imagine the shape of the curve that emerges. Extend the curve (extrapolate).

Eventually, the sane part of the world will have to take out this dangerous man before he has the chance to bring another great sadness upon humanity:
"If your civilization consists of aggression, making oppressed people homeless, suffocating the voices of justice and bringing poverty to a majority of the world's people, we say loudly that we hate your hollow civilization," he said.
A fine reason for the US and its coalition of the willing to stay in Iraq is to maintain a stance of readiness and deterrence. We'll go through the usual diplomatic escalations with sanctions etc. etc. Eventually, this fellow will perpetrate an act that will force an armed response. My prediction.
