War on Terror--No, War on Jihad
Boots and Oil regarding the war on terror says, 'Getting the terrorists to like us won't work. Worrying about whether or not they like us puts us in their power. The terrorists have demonstrated their malevolence. There isn't much you can do to change their minds.'
Boots references this article in the National Review which argues that "To be sure, our national obsession to obscure militant Islam and remain willfully ignorant of its tenets is not Kerry's fault. He is far from alone in maintaining that we are fighting a war on "terror" rather than on jihadists."
I get it. Mark at Nothing Left gets it. Bush gets it (sorta). Kerry and the politically correct folks don't get it.
