Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)

Navy Captain T.L. McCreary said on Tuesday that the U.S. military now regards terrorism as an act of war, reports Gerry J. Gilmore of the American Forces Press Service.
You are not an enemy combatant - you are a terrorist. You are not a soldier in any war - you are a terrorist. To call you a soldier gives you far too much stature. You are a terrorist and we do not negotiate with terrorists. We hunt them down one by one and bring them to justice.It seems to me that the U.S. shouldn't be allowed to have it both ways. If this is a war than the "enemy" -however broadly defined- should be treated as soldiers. If it isn't, then it seems a bit strange that the U.S. is waging war on other countries.
