WAR: Who Do They Hate?

I just can't agree with the thesis of this NRO analysis and similar pieces to the effect that our enemies are likely to expend much energy (in the near term) attacking other nations. Nobody else sticks in their craw the way the U.S. does, and the parroting of the Euroweenie line on so many issues by Arab despots and their media/religious mouthpieces suggests that they may understand that the best long-run strategy is to divide the West and demoralize its fighting spirit, rather than turn Paris into Columbia, South Carolina with cheese. Many of our allies can be seduced into inaction, including by political opportunism. A terror campaign in Europe might change that.
