World War IV: The Long Struggle Against Islamofascism Comment


  1. It s important for progressives to take conservatives seriously, to see if there are points we haven t considered, to know and weigh the arguments Assuming that this book, by neo con chief Norman Podhoretz, longtime editor of Commentary, is the best that that camp can do for making the case for the long struggle against Islamofascism and here, The Bush Doctrine that Islam is the heir to Totalitarianism and must be fought ignoring the Realist School of politics Well, Podhoretz is a Jewish Archie [...]


  2. The title to this book is deceiving It implies that the book will discuss the ins and outs of the war against Islamofacists The book itself, however, is of a discussion of the Bush Doctrine and the politics involved with the current war on global terrorism This is not to say that the book is bad it is actually quite good The author solidly defends Bush and his policies and makes a good case for his legacy to be re evaluated in a favorable manner in the future Bush haters will not like this book [...]


  3. Podhoretz thinks that anyone who disagrees with him clings to their ideas merely out of ego or to maintain their comfortable lodgings in their academic or journalistic establishments No one who disagrees with the Bush Doctrine could possibly do so from conviction but only from expediency And those who try to fool us with their copious footnotes Podhoretz sources nothing well, they are nothing but clever tricksters we must guard against.He would be laughable a larger than life caricature of illog [...]



  4. A nice, but a bit naive ideological manifesto Totally one sided, but well written Although it bugged me that most of the book is built up on fighting the shadows of good old enemies The World War IV narrative is convincing, but the straight out lies were unnecessary e.g the conditions in Guantanamo Bay, Abu Gharib, and of course there is not and were not any torture at all George W may have been right about his doctrine, but planning and execution was not his strong suit.


  5. World War III was the Cold War World War IV is the war against Islamofascism a specific and accurate enemy than terrorism, Podhoretz argues Comparing our current war to the world wars shows that we must be prepared for a lengthy, expensive war and great loss of life and that it is worth it for world freedom.Podhoretz reviews US foreign policy since WWII and examines Bush s speeches to argue that Bush has a coherent strategy the Bush Doctrine that is analogous to the Truman Doctrine P defends th [...]


  6. This a very imformative, although dry, book WW IV reads like a history text book than an actual commentary on the Global War on Terror.I m not knocking the book, it s very, very good It s exhaustively researched, well written, but to be honest, I was kind of happy that I got through the whole thing.Isuppose this is one of the dangers of reading as much non fiction as I do sometimes, the author does TOO good a job of sticking to the facts I would have liked some of the authors insight, though h [...]


  7. I tried to judge this book on how it was written as opposed to the opinions of the author Podhoretz defends rather eloquently George W Bush s handling of the War on Terror which he dubs World War IV He compares and contrasts this with the cold war World War III One of the strengths of this book is Podhoretz s analysis of how US foreign policy caused and led the way for the rise of terrorism Since this was written in 2006 the author does not the ability to see how the Bush doctrine led to an even [...]


  8. Isolationists and pacifists are either breathtakingly uninformed or worse, choose to have no contextual understanding of history, evil men, murderous ideologies This sobering reminder of the overriding challenge of our time is superb, sublime, sobering, supportive of the great heroes of our time who know freedom is everything and freedom is not ever free.


  9. Podhoretz spends most of the time in this book criticizing those who dared to question the Bush Doctrine, even some of the neocons who worked with the Administration I was hopefull for an insight on the main decisions but this book isn t really about that.


  10. Interesting perspective Turns 9 11 into the the shot heard round the world at Concord Takes the position that WWIII was the 40 50 years of Cold War, and the current War on Terrorism should actually be viewed as a long WWIV that is s not going to come to a tidy conclusion any time soon.



  11. The lunatic ravings of a Jewish warmonger The War on Terror is a facade for the reality of this decades long quagmire actually being a war on Israel s enemies.




  12. Very good book about Bush foreign policy and why it will not be changed any time soon Title refers to the Cold War as World War 3, hence the current war is World War IV.
