So this ISIS/ISIL thing is either the end of the world — if the nut jobs who’ve decided it’s they who’ve been called to fulfil the Koran’s End Times prophesy manage to get their way (which includes drawing us into a ground war of civilizations) — or a horrible blight on mankind that will play itself out if we understand what we’re up against.  Which until I read the Atlantic Monthly cover story everyone’s reading, I did not, but now I think I do.

It’s not short;  but it sure beats the Apocalypse.
