Default Re-Branding

In an age when, if something isn't quite working out right, you rebrand the product so people will now buy it. Its the same crap it was yesterday, just with a different name.

The war on terror has now been rebranded "the long war", a poetic name that conjures up images of long summer days and long island ice teas sat in a long chair on your long lawn - only with ied's, dead soldiers and a trillion dollar price tag.

Not to burst your bubble...but I don't think that any allusion was made that the war on terror would be a short one.


From the Address to a Joint Session of Congress and the American People 9/20/2001:
Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.....

This war will not be like the war against Iraq a decade ago, with a decisive liberation of territory and a swift conclusion. It will not look like the air war above Kosovo two years ago, where no ground troops were used and not a single American was lost in combat.


When did Bush or anyone say that it was ever going to be a short war??

Your point, although well made, is irrelevant. It is not the point how long the war actually is but the renaming of the "war on terror" to "the long war".

Now that you fully understand what this thread is about, please try again to defend the Bush administration.

It would be easier to rebrand you with just a symbol.

No defense required. It was always made known that the (insert favorite silly name here...war on terror, long war, new crusade, great war, islamist fanatical war....) war would be a long one- I believe he has made references to periods of time such as generations long, lasting past his administration and so on (though I am not going to waste time looking for links). It has always ben so- for Christ's sake, the Islamic Fundamentalists have been at it (attacking the Judeo-Christian West) since the late 50's... i'ts about time someone actually decided it was time to fight back.

So if what you want to whine about today in your almost daily whine on life in America, or life with Bush as president is that they are changing the name... I can only think that there are better things to waste your time on. Maybe you could start your own thread...Patrick's daily Whine- it could be kinda like Bob's thread on interesting news topics a while back...and everyone could rush each day to see what atrocities you have been forced to suffer in the previous 24 hours.

They're fighting for Christ's sake? That certainly adds a new twist.
