John Edwards proves that there is no "War on Terror"
The so-called war on terror is a bumper sticker slogan!
It is not a war on terror... it is an ideological doctrine advanced by the Bush administration.
A "war" that Bush has used to justify everything from abuses at Abu Ghraib...
...to the invasion of Iraq.
By framing this as a "war", we have walked right into the trap...
...a trap the terrorists have set.
That we are engaged in some kind of clash of civilizations and a war on Islam.
I do not believe there is a global war on terror.
As president, I pledge to use force only to pursue essential national security missions...
...to improve civilian-military relations ...and root out mismanagement at the Pentagon.
This administration has abandoned any claim to U.S. moral leadership in the world.
We need a post-Bush, post-9/11, post-Iraq military. A military that is mission focused on protecting Americans from 21st century threats.
A military that is not misused for discredited ideological purposes.
