How do we define the Global War on Terror?

Let me propose something to all of you who really want to understand the current, and unfortunately future, administration with respect to the Global War on Terror (GWOT) and Iraq. Take the time to review the information on the site that I have linked to in this posting. The ideas expressed on this site, and in his book "The Pentagon's New Map", by Thomas P.M. Barnett are the basis of the actions being taken now, and in the for seeable future, in Iraq with respect to the GWOT.

Hopefully, the concepts put forth in this book can become the foundation of the debate in this country about the GWOT and the dominant definition of the meaning of the term "Global War on Terror". What is the use of having a rational debate on this long term war if, as a society, we haven't yet agreed on its entire meaning.
