It's election season, and so of course this neat little phrase that i soooo don't miss is making a comeback with the candidates and the news media. How's it going? Has Bush made progress?, etc. those are the pressing questions of the day it seems. So here's mine - What the hell is a war on terror? How exactly do you fight terrorism (a method of warfare)? How can you possibly plan to eradicate a form of fighting that is, along with its near cousin guerilla warfare, one of the oldest and most enduring forms, known to man? It is a method and style used by the weaker party in a conflict for the better part of several millenia. But somehow, now, these next 4 years, W. has the answer? So what is it already? Does he have some brillant strategy that just hasn't occured to the rest of us yet? Are we that naive that we really think if we say its a war, we can win it, even against a rather permanent fixture of human society? Or do we just come up with stupid names for stuff?
