The War on Terror has ended?

The UK newspaper, The Observer, presents the following:
Cabinet ministers have been told by the Foreign Office to drop the phrase 'war on terror' and other terms seen as liable to anger British Muslims and increase tensions more broadly in the Islamic world.

The shift marks a turning point in British political thinking about the strategy against extremism and underlines the growing gulf between the British and American approaches to the continuing problem of radical Islamic militancy. It comes amid increasingly evident disagreements between President George Bush and Tony Blair over policy in the Middle East.

Article continues
Experts have welcomed the move away from one of the phrases that has most defined the debate on Islamic extremism, but called it 'belated'.

'It's about time,' said Garry Hindle, terrorism expert at the Royal United Services Institute in London. 'Military terminology is completely counter-productive, merely contributing to isolating communities. This is a very positive move.'

A Foreign Office spokesman said the government wanted to 'avoid reinforcing and giving succour to the terrorists' narrative by using language that, taken out of context, could be counter-productive'. The same message has been sent to British diplomats and official spokespeople around the world.

So the war has ended. We must do all not to offend the Muslim world and the Islamofascists. The degree of dhimmitude is astounding. The UK official line now corresponds with the line of El Beep (the BBC) and PC once more rules.

But we may rest assured, that even though the UK rendition will soon be enhanced to "What War on Terror? - no such thing has ever existed", the terrorists will take this as the victory it is.

I have long been surprised the Labour governments relatively harsh line on terror and the participation in Iraq. Obviously it has been owed mostly to one man: Mr. Blair. Now he is on the way out and the socialists (read defeatist apologists) are waiting to take over power.

I wonder when a large part of London becomes a pile of radioactive rubble whether the war will be reinstated or whether it will cause a complete surrender?

I believe that the war on terror is the right phrase to use. We can not pin point one country to terror as it is to far spead out. The War on terror should not be changed.If it is offensive to the muslim world then what term would be more justifed War in the Middle East. The war on terror is just not being fought over in the Middle East but here at home in the United States. National Security has also been beefed up for this "War on Terror".

Do you know buy lindens? I like it.
My brother often go to the internet bar to buy second life linden and play it.
After school, He likes playing games using these cheap linden with his friends.
I do not like to play it. Because I think that it not only costs much money but also spend much time. One day, he give me many linden dollars and play the game with me.
I came to the bar following him and found secondlife money was so cheap. After that, I also go to play game with him.
