Rallying Cry Edit
In the aftermath of 9/11, America needed allies and fast. Since the enemy consisted of Fundamental Islamists, the genius that is our Christian commander and chief is to remind all Europeans of the nine previous crusades fought by Fundamental Christianists and their Christian duty to defend other Christian nations.
- George W. Bush, from a press conference upon arrival at the South Lawn of the White House, 16th September 2001.
- "We need to go back to work tomorrow and we will. But we need to be alert to the fact that these evil-doers still exist. We haven't seen this kind of barbarism in a long period of time. No one could have conceivably imagined suicide bombers burrowing into our society and then emerging all in the same day to fly their aircraft--fly U.S. aircraft into buildings full of innocent people--and show no remorse. This is a new kind of--a new kind of evil. And we understand. And the American people are beginning to understand. This [tenth] crusade, this war on terrorism is going to take a while. And the American people must be patient. I'm going to be patient. But I can assure the American people I am determined, I'm not going to be distracted, I will keep my focus to make sure that not only are these brought to justice, but anybody who's been associated will be brought to justice. Those who harbor terrorists will be brought to justice. It is time for us to win the first war of the 21st century decisively, so that our children and our grandchildren can live peacefully into the 21st century."
- George W. Bush, from a rally for the troops in Alaska, 16th February 2002.
- "I want to tell you something, we've got no better friends than Canada. [Applause] They stand with us in this incredibly important [tenth] crusade to defend freedom, this campaign to do what is right for our children and our grandchildren."
Clash of Civilization Edit
According of historians, at the heart of each Crusade is the clash of civilizations between the decedents of the Graeco-Romans and the decedents of the Mesopotamians. Religion and religious struggles provides a good unifying framework that transcend nations and offer to provide an viewpoint at the civilization level.
High Honor Edit
To honor George W. Bush, the leader of the Tenth Crusade, the European crusaders gave him the title of "George Bush II of America" and raise his stature to the level of Philip II, Frederick II, and Edward I. If crusader George Bush II died in this crusade, he will be honored with sainthood be forever known as St. George Bush.
