A Just WAGE (War Against Great Evil): Can al Qaeda Lunacy Succeed?

Recently, President Bush delivered an address (linked below) remarked about "the fourth anniversary of a great evil". There was an uncanny parallel to Molten Eagle's comments of three days earlier:

Notice the order of the three, color-coded points:

October 3rd (Molten Eagle):
Can their lunacy succeed? Young al-Qaedas thrive on fantasies: video games; soldier of fortune adventure; notions of erotic paradise; the global Caliphate; and, other juvenile illusions. One by one Jihadis will be eradicated, commit suicide or mature into the human race. Poor students of history, they rarely have the slightest clue why the Caliphate is doomed - human nature has never been changed.

October 6th (President Bush):
And Islamic radicalism, like the ideology of communism, contains inherent contradictions that doom it to failure. By fearing freedom -- by distrusting human creativity, and punishing change, and limiting the contributions of half the population -- this ideology undermines the very qualities that make human progress possible, and human societies successful. The only thing modern about the militants' vision is the weapons they want to use against us. The rest of their grim vision is defined by a warped image of the past -- a declaration of war on the idea of progress, itself. And whatever lies ahead in the war against this ideology, the outcome is not in doubt: Those who despise freedom and progress have condemned themselves to isolation, decline, and collapse. Because free peoples believe in the future, free peoples will own the future. (Applause.)
