Middle East expert Juan Cole has a lengthy take-down of the Iraq portions of Bush’s State of the Union address. But he begins by admitting some confusion about Bush’s policies that I think I can easily clear up for him. Cole says:

it is unclear what “taking the fight to the enemy” means in Bush’s ill-conceived “war on terror.”

I think it’s very clear what Bush means by “taking the fight to the enemy.” It’s a delicate and intricate process.

1) Go to another country.
2) Bomb the people of that country until they start fighting back.
3) Declare that the people who fight back hated America even before you started bombing them.
4) Ta-da!

Prof. Cole might argue that this process is “making enemies” and not “taking the fight to them”, but then he’s studied the Middle East and speaks Arabic, so he probably loves the terrorists and wants to have all their babies and stuff.
