    on one level, this is only election talk aimed at gaining votes, but as policy this seems foolish. it is isis that needs to be at war with the infidel, as part of its raison d’être and eschatological bona fides. their claim to be a new caliphate is based partly on their fight against the enemies of islam, real or imagined, and taking on “the great satan” only gives them more credibility. ignoring them, instead of launching into exaggerated spasms of wall-to-wall coverage might let a little of the wind out of their sails.

    and as a matter of simple fact, the united states has been less successful at waging declared war than in undeclared ones. neither the war on poverty, nor the war on drugs, nor the war on terrorism were particularly successful. but various coups and covert ops have been far more effective, including president obama’s drone strikes, for example. so perhaps if mr bush is serious about defeating them, maybe he would be wiser to propose an undeclared war against isis?
