our way of life

President Bush, today, at a military installation in northeast Pennsylvania:

"As our troops fight a ruthless enemy determined to destroy our way of life, they deserve to know that their elected leaders who voted to send them to war continue to stand behind them."

P. Roberts, in "'All The Right People': The Historiography of the American Foreign Policy Establishment," JOURNAL OF AMERICAN STUDIES 26 (1992):432:

"The enemy, be it Wilhelmite Germany, Hitler's Germany, or Soviet Russia, was depicted in Manichean terms and inflated rhetoric as the fountainhead of a global effort to wipe out democracy, civilization, and freedom."
