More Code Words

-- by Dave Johnson

By now you've heard that the words "War On Terror" are no longer operative. Now it is a "global struggle against violent extremism":

Throughout July, administration officials have substituted new words for the old. Instead of trumpeting the "global war on terrorism," ... have sounded the call to "a global struggle against violent extremism."
Struggle Against Violent Extremism. Struggle (Kampf) to SAVE. As in Christianity will SAVE you.
Mr. Rumsfeld described America's efforts as it "wages the global struggle against the enemies of freedom, the enemies of civilization."
And who are we to be SAVEd from? Non-Christians, specifically Muslims:
Leaks yesterday said the new policy redefined the terrorist threat as "Islamist extremism", not just al-Qa'eda, and was aimed at some two dozen groups.
Timothy McVeigh? Never.

(possible variation of old Jethro Tull song?)

"If G SAVES, then it better save itself
From the gory glory seekers
Who use its name in Death."
