To those who have read the opening chapters of Reza Aslan's How to Win a Cosmic War or for those familiar with the core ideas of his book, you know how dangerous it is that American foreign policy is so entangled with Christian supremacist forces in America.

Aslan argues, for the most part, that the way to win a cosmic war (how he characterizes "the war on terror") is to not fight it. But, Christian supremacists acting based on what they believe about end times will never choose to not fight.

So long as people like Erik Prince and others with views similar to him influence foreign policy or play a role in carrying out America's foreign policy goals and objectives, Americans can count on hearing more news of torture and abuse of Muslims, more news of murder and mass killings of Muslims, and more news proselytizing and attempts to convert Muslims.

We can count on a bloody war on Islam to continue under the guise of the "war on terror" to continue.
