you may well be right about the motivations being quite earthly,
(as they probably were in the actual crusades, too?) - but just a note:    (03)

but don't you think that the fact that mr. Bush used the word himself to
begin with has anything to do with that 'labored attempt'? i mean, it does
not take much to associate a term to someone's action when he himself has
used the term in front of all the world.. (albeit in error not repeated)    (04)
