"I don't think you can win it," he responded. "But I think you can create conditions so that those who use terror as a tool are less acceptable in parts of the world."Hmmmmm. Sounds very familliar....
Oh Yeah, that's how the US dealt with Nazism. We have never defeated Nazism, it still exists to this day, but it has been marginalized and, with the exception of whacked skinheads and a large number of muslims, is ineffectual and powerless. Sounds to me like Bush is proposing doing this to the Islamists. I see this as the only way to finally defeat Islamism. Islamism is a foul ideology that will always have some adherants, but if we can do to it what we've done to German National Socialism then we will truly have succeded.
Now if only we can finally do that to Stalinism, Maoism, Troskyism, and the numerous communist/socialist evil ideologies that populate the world and the United States.
