Force, not books

In his May column “Honor the Missing Schoolgirls,” Nicholas D. Kristof writes that “the greatest threat to extremism [meaning Boko Haram among others] isn’t a drone overhead but a girl with a book.” Finally, someone has the right idea. Forget troops and drones —it’s books, books and more books until each and every girl in Nigeria and elsewhere threatened by extremists has one. Why didn’t I think of that?

Just kidding, and Mr. Kristof is just spouting liberal gibberish. I say kill all the extremists or use at least enough force so they give up. Mr. Kristof, the Post-Gazette and you liberals out there, that is the answer, not books. Not books and not President Barack Obama telling Muslims we love them — nor Hillary Clinton pleading that we had nothing to do with the anti-Islam video.
