I know the President defended the Bergdahl swap saying “this is what happens when wars end.” True enough, but who said the war was ending? Just because we say it doesn’t make it so. I’ll bet the bad guys see the war as being quite unresolved. And this is a very big win for them. I just hope the drones are warming up and eventually get these five. That would be a great statement by the POTUS and show that we are not to be f’d with.

I’ve always wondered how we classify terrorists activities as war. I think it was the U.S. that declared it a war against terrorism, but did we ever really declare war in the classic sense?

Where are the front lines, what territory are we taking back or pushing an army out of, etc.? Is AQ or the Taliban an army or are they a terrorist group and a religious political party. No one stuck a flag in the ground or drew a line that was visible.

Americans do not understand terrorism, but they sure do understand the word war. So, war it was.

And I think we pay for that lack of definition. Everything is all messy with terrorist groups.
