I'm quite familiar with the Three Conjectures. I have blogged it even. Wretchard and I had a rather active correspondence back in the day. Now I just comment at his blog - mostly. I think if you follow the link you will find I commented on the piece or its follow up. If the comments are still intact.

So again: assume the Three Conjectures is correct. What is the advantage of a one bomb strike?

How does it advance the goal of a move to a global caliphate? And if it only destroys Islam it will be a tragedy for America and a catastrophe for those who sent the bomb and their friends.

I'm going to assume you are correct and they are irrational actors (pretty good assumption). Where does a bomb objectively leave them? Will deterrence deter them? Probably not.

So what?

Duane,

You are taking my side in the argument. No fair. ;-)
