Bombs and bullets won't stop Al Qaeda?

I saw over at Newsbusters that CNN's Michael Ware doesn't think the United States can win the war in Afghanistan "with bombs and bullets," and that it would take "cutting deals" with Al Qaeda in order to come to a solution.

Mr. Ware, back in the 1930s and '40s, there was this guy, Adolf Hitler. European leaders knew he was a threat and wanted to protect their countries, but they didn't want to go to war with him. So they appeased him by giving concession after concession, thinking that cutting deals would save them (please also see the Israeli-Palestinian conflict). However, one thing led to another, and that's when we had something called World War II. Bombs and bullets stopped Hitler and the Nazis, Mr. Ware, not peace talks or deals.

Honestly, the stupidity of people just blows my mind.

It is true that it won't be bombs and bullets alone. There is also information warfare, deception and denial, and eventually, overwhelming firepower.
