Is the "War on Terror" a misnomer?:
My argument is that the "War on Terror" is a pretty bad name for what's going on because you're fighting a tactic. You have to personalize this and show what group of people we're fighting. Then the objective becomes pretty clear. The objective in the "War on Terror" is not clear; it's not clear how you know you've won. But a "War on Jihadis" is pretty clear.
