France Should Watch It's Back

Or at least that's how I take the concluding paragraph in Diana West's latest article. The article is mostly about whether we should allow the Palestinian people to go hungry and get sick, or whether we should just let them go hungry. But she concludes with this interesting paragraph.
Maybe waging a nebulous "war on terror" has hopelessly confused us. Maybe finding ourselves in the costly business of making the world safe for sharia has muddled our objectives. But if we cannot retrieve the simple, precious principle that took us into war -- you're either with us or you're against us -- not only will we never achieve victory, we won't even know what it looks like.
So here's a few questions. Is France with "us" or against "us?

How about anti-war protestors?

How about snarky political bloggers?
