Now two prominent guests in the last few weeks have said that the “war on terrorism” is misnamed. 9/11 Commission member Bob Kerrey said it should be the “war on Islamic extremism”. Today former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski said terrorism is a military tactic. He said calling it a war on terrorism is like calling World War II a war on the blitzkrieg. But ZB is very clear in his belief that Iraq is not part of that war and only served to make us more vulnerable to terrorists in New York. In his new book The Choice: Global Domination or Global Leadership, he compares the U.S. today to the late stage Roman Empire when they took a “with us or against us” attitude toward virtually the entire world. 'Nuff said.
