    No End in Sight for the Long Struggle to Define Terrorism

    The "war on terror" is a bunch of bullshit anyway.

    Terror is a tactic in war, not an enemy.

    They didn't call WWII, "war on blitzkreig".

    What would work for you? War on Muslims? It's not like it's a country we're talking about here.
    It's a bunch of religious fanatics spread around the globe. Spreading terror.....hmmmm.

    It's a bullshit myth of creating perpetual war that allows the government to strip us of our civil rights and rape our tax dollars for the military industrial complex.

    You talk like these religious fanatics are one, coordinated entity, all acting in unison. They're nothing but average muslim citizens who have been radicalized into US hating terrorists as a result of us bombing the shit out of their country's over made up, bullshit reasons.

    Seems like you were on the name thing with the Blitzkrieg statement.
    As to it being made up? I wouldnt say made up. Played up? You bet....

    It did bring us the Homeland Security. Which the gov. is now using to it's fullest extent.
    With more to come I'm sure..

    I wonder how much that cost us? With all this talk about cutting government spending, how much did it cost us to add a whole new, unecessary Cabinet post?

    "Made up", as in there is no tangible enemy and no way to determine and end to the war. There is no VE Day or VJ Day. It's perpetual. It never ends. And that's the point.

    "Played up", as in exaggerating the threats that are, in part, the result of our own foreign policy decisions.

    obama said the war on terror was over when Bin Laden was killed. He declared himself the winner.
