Dubya was keen to call The War Against Terror a crusade in the beginning, but somebody pointed out that that might not be very good PR...

But weren't the Crusades a Papal thing? As I recall, the last pope wasn't too keen on Bush and Bliar's adventures....

No, the pope wasnt too keen on Bush and Blairs Excellent Advanture, but the Pope was more concerned about gays getting married and women getting birth control and abortions and decided war wasnt so bad after all. At least not bad enough to not support bush.

Yep - it was mostly men who decided it was worse to see two dudes holding hands than it was for the Dear Leader to kill thousands and blow billions on Operation Enduring War.

Bush probably did misspeak when he said that. Afterall, he often misspeaks. Yet, this is one area where many libs pretend to believe him. Much to much is made of his alleged piety. Most people who know him think that is funny. - Eisenhower called the invasion of France a "great crusade" too, and Emmana Goldman spoke of crusade, in a leftist anarchist sense. Liberals are being tricked when they adopt the view, shared by Bush's rustic base, that Bush is a fundamentalist.
Anyway, the implicit comparison to Urban ll, when you compare Iraq to the Crusade, is too generous to Bush - granting his stated case with credibility it does not deserve.

The first time I heard about Blair was in the early 90s. A British journalist described as "Clinton witout ethics." This was not meant as compliment to Clinton.

You want to know the real Brit deal - you have to listen to our hypothetical "conversation" between Hitchens and Bush and Andy Card.
