AND THIS FROM THE WORLD'S BEST CHESS PLAYER . . .

No, it's not a tip on how to win in six moves.

Garry Kasparov, in writing about the war in Iraq in today's OpinionJournal makes a point so perfectly clear I wish I'd thought of it:

The Bush administration has contributed to the confusion with its ambiguous "war on terror." You cannot fight a word. You need targets, you need to know what you are fighting for and against. Most importantly you must have beliefs that enable you to distinguish friend from foe.

Damn. A powerful, powerful point. This is a must-read piece.
