Deadly Rampage in Pakistan Shows Reach of Militants*
According to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the War on Terror is over.
THE HAGUE (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday the Obama administration had dropped "war on terror" from its lexicon, rhetoric former President George W. Bush used to justify many of his actions.
"The (Obama) administration has stopped using the phrase and I think that speaks for itself. Obviously," Clinton told reporters traveling with her to The Hague for a conference on Afghanistan, which Bush called part of his "global war on terror."
The term "war on terror" was coined after the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States, which were planned in Afghanistan by the militant* group al Qaeda. (complete article) *my emphasis
Does this mean that U.S. President Obama and government will not fight terror? Or does it mean that there is no terrorism?
The United States was never supportive of Israel's need to fight terrorism. For some "peculaiar" reason, the Arab terrorists who attack Jews and Israelis have never been considered a danger to world peace, nor connected to the terrorists whom the United States deamed worthy of being fought.
I presume that this new policy will only bode even more dangerous for Israel and Israelis. G-d willing, I should be wrong this time.
