I presume I'm just late to the party on this fellow, but based on what I've just read from Michael Smerconish's Why Do They Hate Us?, I confess to feeling just a little bit validated regarding my take on the "Muslim mindset", if you will. Evidently Michael Scheuer, in his book Imperial Hubris, lays out what he believes to be the impetus for Muslim rage against the West.
Here's what I want to know:
If Bush has given any thought at all to these factors, why doesn't he discuss it?
Why isn't it part of the policy dialog?
And if he hasn't, why the hell not?
Anyone a bit more savvy with geopolitics is invited to clue me in.
