BLITZER: Let's check in with Jack Cafferty now. He's got "The Cafferty File." Hi, Jack. JACK CAFFERTY, CNN ANCHOR: Hi, Wolf. President Bush comparing himself to President Truman and the war against Islamic radicals to the Cold War. Speaking at West Point the other day, the president said in both cases, we have been fighting "followers of a murderous ideology that despises freedom, crushes all descent, has territorial ambitions and pursues totalitarian aims." In comparing himself to President Truman, Mr. Bush pointed to the ways both have responded to threats to the United States. There is one difference worth noting, however. That would be that President Truman didn't invade anybody the way President Bush invaded Iraq. It's also worth noting that Truman was controversial at the end of his time in office but is now viewed by many as one of America's great presidents. Here's the question, how does the war on terror compare to the Cold War? E-mail your thoughts to [email protected] or go CNN.com/CaffertyFile. Wolf? . BLITZER: Jack is joining us with "The Cafferty File" -- Jack. CAFFERTY: Thanks, Wolf. At West Point the other day, President Bush compared himself to President Truman and compared the war against Islamic radicals to the Cold War. The question is: How does the war on terror compare to the Cold War? Dan in Portland, Oregon writes: "In the Cold War, we knew our enemy. Not so with the war on terror. They can be your next-door neighbors and you will never know it until it's too late." Yvonne in Cary, North Carolina: "I don't think there's a comparison between them, except that they are both founded on faulty ideology. Communism had done away with a god. Muslim terrorists are on a crusade to convert the world by murder." Chris in Denver: "I think it is a desperate comparison made by a president trying to prop up his approval ratings. The Soviet Union had the ability to completely annihilate most major American cities within a few hours." Ulf in Miami: "The difference was, the Cold War was between states. The war on terror is between states and non-state actors, thus, in reality, an international police operation, with the United States as the international self-declared unilateral police force." Chris in Crawfordsville, Indiana: "The new Cold War is with China. And if this administration doesn't deal with it soon, they will lose this one. We are already losing the war on terror because of our open borders." Marcus in Arlington, Virginia: "During the Cold War, the other side really did have WMDs." And Tom in Nashville writes: "The Cold War was an intense chess game, where highly intelligent and skilled administration personnel moved knights and bishops with extreme care. In the war on terror, those people in the highly intelligent and skilled administration positions are wondering if they should move the little horsey or the ones with the pointy heads." (LAUGHTER) CAFFERTY: Wolf. (LAUGHTER) BLITZER: Good letters, Jack. Thank you very much. Rove must have put him up to this Truman/Bush thing because it sure did not work and it insults Harry S. Truman...bush may go down as one of the worst 8 year Presidents in our history unless he kills osama bin laden and gets his father involved to save his legacy ..what I see now is a lot of feeble attempts to save himself and comparing himself to Harry Truman is pathetic...look for the rove/bush culture to lash out and attack like a mongrel in a corner...you are already seeing it with the separation of powers being affronted...oh guess what now the gay marriage ban is all of a sudden front and center...well why wasn't it front and center after the election..people see through this....stir up the base with red meat ..get them emotional to vote against their economic interests. bush has hurt this nation...but we will rebound and he will just sit on his ranch in isolation...he sure will not travel the world.
