The Big Push?

Good news! "In global fight against terror, 'big week' ahead[.]"

That's what the headline says.

The subheading is more accurate:

Next week there will be several international meetings about the conflicts in Syria, Libya, and Yemen. Quick results aren't expected, but taken together, they underscore a growing sense of urgency about resolving the conflicts.

Oh. So there actually isn't a big week ahead in the actual fighting of actual jihadi terrorists.

There is a big week ahead in talking about fighting jihadi terrorists.

That's a different thing altogether than actual action, isn't it?

But there might even be PowerPoint presentations!!

On the bright side, more than 14 years after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks by jihadis on American soil, there is a "growing sense of urgency" about the issue.

So we've got that going for us.
