A Never Ending War

I have been saying that the way this administration is defining war, and victory, this war might never end.

Well, now they are admitting it.

WASHINGTON - The United States is engaged in what could be a generational conflict akin to the Cold War, the kind of struggle that might last decades as allies work to root out terrorists across the globe and battle extremists who want to rule the world, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Thursday.

This leaves the question, do we have to give up our rights and liberties for generations? Is the President to be all powerful for generations?

And most importantly, are you so foolish to think you can defeat a tactic. Since terrorism is not a nation or a person, but a style of conflict, how do you propose to defeat a type of war.

Sadly, I suspect there are many Americans who are willing to give up their rights and liberty in this foolish and hopeless exercise.
