Substitution for the Global War on Terror
The Obama administration’s decision to shelve the “Global War On Terror” was met with skepticism – surely Terror is still our enemy, right? And Terror hasn’t won, has it?
Hillary Clinton provides the clue. Obama’s new boogey man will be the mystical Unaffiliated Pirate, hence the GWOT is now replaced by the Global War On Piracy (GWOP).
Never mind that Somali pirates are Islamic extremists. Shhh! When the Obama administration finds out, piracy won’t be so bad!
