Analysis of the U.S.’ war on terror clearly demonstrates that we are not winning.
The reasons? If the war on terror were a medical condition, the reasons would be clear:
Failure to treat the underlying cause of the problem
The use of improper remedy
Insufficient use of medication
Failure to distinguish between the disease and its aggravating factors
The presence of factor(s) impeding the action of the used treatment
Relying on a medication to treat a new medical condition based solely on its former success in treating another disease
