Wit and Wisdom for a One Party State

A handbook for government by wishful thinking

Wednesday, July 27, 2005

Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism, n. A more soothing, longer-lasting formulation of that old favorite, the Global War on Terror, with all of the G and half of the W. It is not known whether the GLOBAL STRUGGLE AGAINST VIOLENT EXTREMISM is effective, as the President of the United States of America withdrew this product from the market less than two weeks after it was first introduced. It is, however, still available as a generic remedy for the symptoms of wartime consumption.

2005 S.J. HADLEY via NYT 25 Jul. "It is more than just a military war on terror. It's broader than that. It's a global struggle against extremism."
2005 PRESIDENT G.W. BUSH via NYT 4 Aug. "Make no mistake about it, we are at war."
2005 Pentagon spokesman, via WaPo 15 Aug. "It's not just technology, it's not just jammers, it's not just armor. It's a holistic approach to solve the problem."
