Apparently the jihadis in the Middle East just need good jobs

Or Faux Snooze has been bought by The Onion:

State Department spokeswoman floats jobs as answer to ISIS
What the West really needs to take on the Islamic State is … a jobs program.

That’s what a top State Department spokeswoman suggested when asked in a TV interview Monday night about what the U.S.-led coalition is doing to stop the slaughter of civilians by Islamic State militants across the region.

Doesn’t seem very cost effective. I think we should address the violence with a midnight basketball* program.


* For the younger folks: “Midnight basketball was a 1990s initiative to curb inner-city crime in the United States by keeping urban youth off the streets and engaging them with alternatives to drugs and crime.”
