(Each "Question of the Week," an idea which I gleaned from A Republic If You Can Keep It, will remain toward the top of the blog until the next question appears. The previous Questions of the Week are HERE. Please scroll down for recent postings)

I have a few issues with the term "The War On Terror."

Terror is a method, not an enemy against whom war can be declared. In the current conflict, I'd much rather use the term "The War Against Islamists," "The War Against Jihadists," or "The War Against Islamofascists." In sum, "The War On Terror" seems another politically-correct term, one which obfuscates both the identity and the ideology of the enemy.

Maybe I'm missing something important about the use of this term?

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Is the terminology "The War On Terror" an adequate name for the clash in which we are now engaged?
