Bush: We'll Lose the War on Terror If the War on Terror Ever Becomes a War on Islam

See, this is one of those areas, a rare one regarding terrorism, where I substantially disagree with President George W. Bush. As a ‘compassionate conservative’ he does not want to turn the war against terrorism into a war against Islam in spite of the clear fact that Islam is at war with us and has been for at least three decades. Making such an argument is the equivalent, I think, of saying you don’t want to turn the Cold War into a war against Communism or World War II into a war against Nazism.
