On Friday afternoon, the U.S. State Department asked Twitter users to offer their “solutions” for countering “violent extremism.”

In addition to a number of sarcastic responses, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) offered the State Department a number of solutions to counter extremism. They probably weren't what the department had in mind.

It seems Sen. Cotton is of the belief that the best way to defeat extremists, like those fighting for the Islamic State terrorist group, is to take them out.
