7. How could we be?

Al Queda is a faith-based organization, and Bush is on a mission from God. I always have difficulty trying to assign positive values to religous fanatics and zealots, even if one is the clear underdog. All I know is that if I try to intervene and stop two mad dogs from fighting, they'll probably both try to rip my throat out. My understanding is that the age of enlightenment and the establishment of a haven from religious persecution in America, was supposed to lead the world out of the then-ubiquitous holy wars and into reason and peace. Returning to the dark ages and matching jihad with crusade means going backwards.
