Comprehending is Hard Work

From the BBC

“But President George W Bush said he did not think the photos would encourage insurgents in Iraq.

"I don't think a photo inspires murderers. I think they're inspired by an ideology that's so barbaric and backwards that it's hard for many in the Western world to comprehend how they think."

Spoken like a true idiot-ologist. We comprehend how many of them think. They think a country invaded their country and it’s been a disaster ever since. They have had too many murders and not enough of that life that bush treasures so much. They see, not just this photo, they see the great big picture of reality. What’s so difficult to understand?

What I do have trouble understanding is how he could, in his role as Commander and Chief, lead our country into war based on a fantasy. That’s where the understanding gets tough for me. Now that the cat is out of the WMD bag, I guess we have to try to understand that he was inspired by an ideology too. Sounds pretty barbaric and backward to me.
