The war on terror: Victory is ours

Spencer Ackerman takes apart Stanley Kurtz's assertion that: Islamists might actually gain and retain control of a substantial portion of the globe–or perhaps even defeat the West. What bullshit! As hard to define as "the West" is -- is Russia "the West"? Japan? -- nevertheless we're undefeated, partly because we're so hard to define.

To be "Western," to me, is to be assimilative, so it is much more likely that the "Islamists" (which I put in quotes because I'm not sophisticated enough to define it) make an accomodation to our way of life than we do to theirs.
