George Bush was facile, but Islam has always been at war with itself.

George Bush may not have realized the quagmire he was heading the American military into in Iraq, but it is also facile to say that tensions would not have erupted between the Shia and Sunni. They hated America before America invaded.  But they also hate each other and kill more of their kind than America did. George Bush is not the initiator of the Islamic violence. He might have been the catalyst.

Iranian gunboats attacked ships leaving the United Arab Emirates. Yemeni rebels are fighting pro-Saudi forces while also yelling "Death to America.". Syrians and Iraqis are fighting each other along sectarian lines.

Islam the so-called "religion of peace" is itself the architect for ongoing generational war.
