CONOR FRIEDERSDORF: Paris and the Lessons of 9/11: The U.S. should treat France as France treated the U.S. 14 years ago—by helping the other wage prudent fights and warning its leaders against the rash decisions that trauma can lead to. Hmm.

I was actually thinking that if the French were to nuke ISIS, it would send a powerful message about the likely future of aggressive Islamic terrorism, while not creating the kind of superpower dynamic that would occur if the US did so. Won’t happen, I guess, but I wonder if there’s someone in France thinking the same thing. If not, there will be after the next attack.
