… Why That's Ridiculous

Krauthammer, Charles
July 2005
Time International (South Pacific Edition);7/18/2005, Issue 28, p31
The article presents the author's views on the U.S.' war on terrorism, with specific reference to the war in Iraq. The war on terrorism is a very long war. It would continue because it is a sickness incubated within Arab/Islamic culture, a combination of repression, corruption, intolerance and fanaticism. Transforming that political culture begins with the liberation of Iraq. Now, the democratic governments of Iraq and Afghanistan are with the U.S. in its struggle against jihadism.
