Disagreaments with terminology

Reader comment on: Wartime Enemies or Common Criminals?

Submitted by Vladimir Pismenny (United States), Jul 21, 2010 14:20

Dear Sir or Madam,

Sorry but I can not agree with your terminology either. "United States are at war with Al-Qaeda". Actually, in my opinion, not only... How about "Al-Shabaab"? How about many other Islamist terrorist group?

Whatever happened with President's Bush pronouncement "Either you with us or against us"?

Also, the words "Global War on Terror" sound strange in writing of Jewish Policy Center. War on Terror??? Terror is a state of fear, if you go to a dictionary... We are at war not with human feelings but with cruel, mercyless and barbarian enemies and they deserved to be named!!!

I asked the similar question in April U.S. senator Susan Collins, the ranking member of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and you can watch it if you want her answer:

Restpectfully and with the best wishes,

Vladimir Pismenny
