Bush Phase Two

I want to recommend an article by Peter Laurie published in The Barbados Daily Nation for the sake of this brilliantly executed sentence:

The American right has found the perfect Orwellian instrument for achieving its goals: a global “war on terror” so ill-defined that it can never end; so all-inclusive that anyone can be named an enemy; and so rooted in fear-mongering that any right may be violated and any liberty trampled in the name of a spurious patriotism.

Laurie outlines the three-fold alliance between "bigoted Christian fundamentalists; a greedy clique within corporate America; and the war-mongering neo-conservatives" and suggests that even Tony Blair may not be able to stomach "Bush Phase Two".
