Satan. A U.S. pullout from Afghanistan would leave a vacuum the Taliban, the
warlords, and the drug lords will fill. Pakistan is one bullet away from an Islamist
state of 170 million with an atomic bomb. In Latin America, radicalism and racism
are on the rise among the indigenous peoples to whom the demagogues pander.

her voice drifted off as she looked away. He agreed, understanding as well as a
