Fueling the Fire

Zbigniew Brzezinski on Making enemies:

Both candidates have become prisoners of a worldview that fundamentally misdiagnoses the central challenge of our time. President Bush’s ‘global war on terror’ is a politically expedient slogan without real substance, serving to distort rather than define. It obscures the central fact that a civil war within Islam is pitting zealous fanatics against increasingly intimidated moderates. The undiscriminating American rhetoric and actions increase the likelihood that the moderates will eventually unite with the jihadists in outraged anger and unite the world of Islam in a head-on collision with America.

That what we call a nuance.

Concentration is important!
