Fisking Juan Cole: A Photo Gallery

Professor Juan Cole, President of the Middle East Studies Association, doesn’t think we are really at war.

War on Terror Over
The Bush administration is giving up the phrase “global war on terror.”
I take it this is because they have finally realized that if they are fighting a war on terror, the enemy is four guys in a gymn (sic) in Leeds. It isn’t going to take very long for people to realize that a) you don’t actually need to pay the Pentagon $400 billion a year if that is the problem and b) whoever is in charge of such a war isn’t actually doing a very good job at stopping the bombs from going off. [Emphasis added.]

I don’t know what to say. So I won’t say anything. I’ll just post some photos instead. Let’s see if they jibe with the professor’s “four guys are the enemy” theory.
