That phrase — “people who have no belief system” — is a means of absolving groups that preach killing, and the PR groups that aid them, and the people who voluntarily fund them, and the governments that still won’t put a stop to it.

It’s not the lack of jobs or education policies that cause terrorism, any more than a lack of belief fuels terrorism. That Kerry believes that to be the case is terrifying. This man is in charge of our international relationships and has a strong say on how we project ourselves to the world. He’s inept. He doesn’t fundamentally understand the world. He’s a rube who sounds smart because he speaks with a Brahmin accent.

From there, Kerry says this: “Now we’re in the 21st century, and it’s time for a different organizational principle.” What does that even mean? Should we re0rder the world to the terrorists’ liking? Or should we surrender our sovereignty to an undemocratic entity like the EU? What is Kerry driving at? It’s doubtful that he even knows.
