WaPo’s Dana Milbank’s anti-ISIS strategy: Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair

November 23, 2015

From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:

Flower power from Milbank: hippie days are here again.

“Boy: They’ve got guns. They can shoot us because they’re very, very bad, daddy.

“Father: They’ve got guns but we have flowers.

“Boy: But flowers don’t do anything. They’re for… they’re for… they’re for…

“Father: Look, everyone is laying flowers here.

“Boy: Yes.

“Father: It’s to fight against the guns.”

Comments Milbank:

“That father-son exchange is a more powerful answer to Islamic State than any missile strike.”

And why stop there with the flower power? Why bother with those nasty “missiles” at all? How about sticking a daisy into the muzzle of every ISIS rifle, the way the original hippies did back in the Vietnam War days? We could also ship the Islamic State some posters saying, “What if they gave a war and nobody came?”
