From reading & writing, that’s just what I was thinking:

Weirdly, though, there hasn’t been much propaganda from the government about America’s place in the world–the language coming from the Republican hawks has more of the tone of a family feud, in which the grievances are assumed & do not have to be demonstrated. Add to this the fundamentalist Christian pre-millenniumism prevalent among our political leaders & what you have is the makings of a holy war, waged not on rational, but emotional & religious grounds. The central analytical question we have to ask ourselves, the question upon we must meditate, is: Who will suffer in this war?
