Nicholas Kristof on What Oman Can Teach Us

In his New York Times column today, Nicholas Kristof writes about the benefits of books over bombs. He suggests that America's strategy for crushing extremism by using force may not be the best possible solution. He uses Oman as an example - a country that, only 40 years ago, was as tribal and traditional as its neighbor, Yemen. Oman, however, did not become the hotbed of Al Quaeda terrorism that Yemen has - in large part due to an emphasis on education for both girls and boys. Read Kristof's article about his travels and observations.
