Bush and Bin Laden

John just said to me, "Bush and Bin Laden are psychic brothers. Both deal in fear."

Many parallels between the two are obvious. For example "I'm good, you're bad, and I must destroy you. God wills it." But fear? (I'm more rational than intuitive, John is the opposite.) Certainly Bush encourages a climate of fear in the US--and so does Bin Laden. That is, the people both of them are trying to frighten are Americans. This seems strange to me, and I don't understand it.
