This is the piece by Gwynne Dyer I was actually looking for when I came across that other one I just posted. This one is a column in which he makes a compelling case that the “War on Terror” cannot be considered a “war,” technically, but is, rather, an ongoing law-enforcement effort, in which there can never be a “victory.” Definitely food for thought, as politicians attempt to stretch the war metaphor into the basis of actual policy (and actual war, for that matter). Anyway, here it is: A ‘statistical’ victory over terrorism cannot be achieved.
