When our highest officials begin to use words like 'fascism' Nazi era appeasors" and 'totalitarian terrorists ' we must begin to look at the kind of tactics that were used in other conflicts as well-to control the electorate. No ideology can be defeated by terror in reverse. The Bush administration's systematic military occupations into the Middle East has promoted that regions heightened resistance against the "ideology" of America. The war we are really fighting is one against a system of thinking, rather than a rally towards war, although a war this soon will be. Our best hope is to open up, somehow, the channels of understanding, because no amount of bloodshed will conquer the thought revolution that is casting its net across the world.
