    "War on Terror" is an intentional PC mis-nomer, dude... Terror is a tactic, you do not make war on tactics. They weren't ready to call it the War on Islamo-fascism" and the world wasn't ready to hear it.

    What are you talking about? You said earlier that a reason for them banning the wearing of the crosses was in response to some sort of gang affiliation having to do with wearing rosaries, now it's paranoid to think that there is a concerted effort against Christian symbols being displayed while in a Public School? How do you get there?

    Bush wasn't ready to call it Islamo-fascism because that is not what he believes. Whatever faults Bush had while in office, blaming an entire religion over the actions of a few was not one of them. While Bush may have been hated by some in the Middle East, he was very much respected by others. And, at the end of the day, it all does come down to mutual respect.

    Is it not good strategy to avoid inflaming those not actively involved in the GSJ - the fence sitters if you will - by avoiding calling a "spade a spade" if it is not absolutely necessary.....

    If POTUS says "I declare war on Muslim extremists (or even just the GSJ)." what do you think would be the reaction in the Muslim world?
