Iraq war not a war on terror?

Reader comment on item: Weak Brits, Tough French

Submitted by Mark E. Roberts (United States), Jul 12, 2005 at 10:46

Your opening two sentences contrast two wars--the one in Iraq, the other on terrorism. Credit the French generously for their war against terrorism and their apparently generous cooperation with America in that war. But do you maintain that these are two unrelated conflicts--Iraq and terrorism? If so, which of your post(s) did I miss that argued this view?

Daniel Pipes replies:

Yes, contrary to the U.S. government, I have always seen these as basically unrelated conflicts.
