What Happened to the Global "War on Terror"?
By Monia Mazigh - rabble.ca
The "war on terror," under Bush or Obama, has been a disaster all along. The complicity in torture is now haunting many Western democracies. It also showed more than ever before that technological advances are dangerous when used to kill the "other," no matter how evil the other is. Using a drone instead of a rifle won't make the crime cleaner and more acceptable. Most importantly, it is a test about our humanity. I am afraid to say that Obama has already lost the war when we look at it from a moral ground.
