100 years ago.

Thomas L. Friedman, 10 years ago:

We have to fight the terrorists as if there were no rules, and preserve our open society as if there were no terrorists. It won't be easy. It will require our best strategists, our most creative diplomats and our bravest soldiers. Semper Fi.

Both ourselves and the US managed the first part. The second, not so much.
