Victory against Islamism, presumably, will draw on both these legacies and mix them into a novel brew of conventional war, counter-terrorism, counter-propaganda, and many other strategies. At one end, the war effort led to the overthrow of the Taliban Government in Afghanistan; at the other, it requires repelling the lawful Islamists who work legitimately within the educational, religious, media, legal and political arenas.
