I believe most anti-Americans are more deluded than that. They do not understand the Islamist threat or the vital nature of the Bush initiative. Take Michael Moore. He is calling the Iraqi "insurgents" the Minute Men of Iraq. He does this because he is stupid.
They think what is fueling the rise of terrorism is the injustice perpretrated by white Western males. They want to give the terrorists *hugs*. Leftists are the useful idiots of the Islamists.
The author is correct, though, in that the left loves to take advantage of every American disadvantage - for example disadvantages caused by the UN and France's scurrilous abandonment of the very cause in which we most need to be united.
