We Should Give Bush This One

Over at Journey's with Jood, Jood criticizes President Bush for referring to Muslim terrorists as "Islamo-Fascists."

Although Bush has shown himself to have a pitiful vocabulary when it comes to diplomacy and labels (axis of evil) it's hard to argue with this description of Muslim fundamentalists. Ultimately, what the regimes of Iran and Syria advocate is religious tyranny along with an imperialistic military. Israel is generally the scapegoat, although most of the West, specifically the U.S., is generally seen as agents of Israel.

The only thing that moderates in the Middle East and the U.S. are going to agree on is that democracy is ideal. By calling terrorists fascists instead of islamic radicals or fundamentalists, perhaps we can win more to our side.

Jack, thanks for the comments, the link and the visit. I think your point is a good one, although I also believe that our current government is devolving into classic fascism.

We need to get out of Iraq, we need to elect Democrats in November, and we need a strong, progressive Democrat, to run for and be elected President in 2008.
