Hey, I got my commission in Dawkins' Army long ago... ;-)

Well, I'm not sure why informing discreetly is a necessary or even
worthy goal. Seems to me we're in need of a bit of blunt (as in
force trauma) information.
Hey, I don't like agreeing with the Bushies on ANYTHING. In this
case, though, it's useful to call it like it is in order to
communicate / fully grasp the magnitude of the problem. Calling it
Islamic fascism doesn't imply or endorse any particular course of
action; indeed, if anything it merely communicates the insidious and
complex nature of the problem. (IMHO, intelligent folks don't fall
victim to the no-doubt intended but false WWII evocation, here. Yet
the mapping between what's going on in the Muslim world and the
concept of "fascism" remains...)
