Global War on Terror Goes All Mushy on Us

According to the International Herald Tribune, the Bush administration thinks it is time to change the phrase "the global war on terror." Instead, the new term will be "a global struggle against violent extremism." Has the NEA infiltrated the Defense Department? It sounds like something Stuart Smalley would come up with. I say the phrase should be changed to "The Kick Their Sorry Butts Into Next Week Campaign."

Let's call it "a global struggle against violent extremism."
It's sooo much nicer than that nasty war word.
