ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on former U.S. President George W. Bush's war against terrorism, following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the country. It relates Bush's policy with that of the "clash of civilisations" thesis and states that Bush used politics dangerously as commodity or resource in the war. According to the author, the war on terror is not to achieve military victory, but to lead perceptions of danger to justify American policies.
