It is important to understand that the goal of the Jihadists is – following in the footsteps of Muhammad – to create the "Islamic kingdom of God on Earth."

I haven't finished the article yet, but this one line makes it worthwhile. Good post! Islamists are, at their core, political utopians. We have faced political utopians before in the form of communists and nazis. There is nothing new under the sun.

Because if the Pelosi Democrats were seeking Bush's success, then their rhetoric and actions now and over the past three years are pretty much incomprehensible. By contrast, if you presume that they want Bush's war on terror to fail, then their words and behavior make perfect sense.

I'd take it one step further. Seems to me that the left wants our whole country to fail, so they can replace it with their own vision. They sell that vision to their constituents as some vague utopia, which libs buy into as a "feel good" agenda.

If a mushroom cloud appears over the US while the Dems are in charge will a Dem President respond with anything but tears and some tough talk?

No, they would hope the U.N. would handle it and be very sad when no action was forthcoming.

An old Yogi Berra adage warns, "If you don't know where you're going, you'll probably end up somewhere else."

Thanks for attributing that quote!  !

That's an accurate assessment as usual, pod'nah.

I don't know that it's a Yogism, it just sounds like a malapropism Yogi would offer.

"...Good post! Islamists are, at their core, political utopians."

Yep. And the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, pre-Bush, was a perfect model of life in their utopia.

Or rather, a nightmare.

Just like Zack said in his comment at post 42. Great minds think alike!  !
