Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

“‘War on terror’ is, on its face, a preposterous expression. Terrorism is simply the name of a technique: intentional attacks on innocent civilians. But war isn’t merely a technical matter: it is a life-and-death struggle against a particular enemy. We made war against Nazi Germany, not against the Blitzkrieg.”

–From Bruce Ackerman’s “Before the Next Attack” (2006).
