World War III or IV?

Everyone's favorite neocon hysteric, Norman Poderetz (who is currently advising Mayor 9/11), has been touting a war against islamofascism as World War IV. Norm's corner for IV included a former CIA director (James Woolsey), who argued in 2003 that Iran, Iraq, Syria & al Qaeda were all part of the islamofascist network. Considering that these four groups don't even get along, I'm not sure how that all works, but I'm sure Jim & Norm have it all worked out in their brains.

So fine, we're heading into World War IV.

But wait! Now Bush has stepped up and warned us that we're heading into World War III ("If you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon.").

So which is it boys? World War III or IV? And why aren't we surprised. This bunch has yet to get even one historical analogy right, let alone process or learn from them. Is it any surprise that they can't even agree on which war we're in now?

I definitely have missed World War III, not that I really want to be involved in it. But wasn't that a perfect Cold War moment the other day? Bush blustering about Iran being the biggest threat ever to world civilization, the trigger for World War III, and then "Pooty-Poot" showing up for the cameras with Public Enemy Number One, Ahmadinejad, IN TEHERAN!?

That was some returning, if not exactly fearful, symmetry.
