What Kind of War Are We Fighting, and Can We Win It? [ISLAMOFASCISM]

What Kind of War Are We Fighting, and Can We Win It?

A Symposium

IHC Abstract

In honor of Norman Podhoretz's recently published volume, World War IV: The Long Struggle Against Islamofascism, Commentary Magazine asked fifteen leading thinkers four questions pertaining to different scenarios in the book.

* Is it correct to consider the current war as WW IV?
* How much progress has been achieved post 9/11?
* Is the spread of democracy the best way to win the war against Islamofascism?
* Will the Bush Doctrine survive the 2008 elections and in what form?

The general response was that we are indeed engaged in a "world war". Democracy - or at least the ideals of freedom and liberty - may need to be nourished after a military victory. There are mixed opinions on America’s progress post 9/11; and finally the Bush Doctrine may or may not survive the elections - but is probably the best chance that America possesses.

The IHC recommends that you read this article in full.
