“The war against terror is not a conventional war in which one can assign well-defined targets for the US Air Force to hit. It is also not a police operation, such as fighting the mafia. It is something in between, and this calls for a different strategy. But the last thing one should do is fall for ‘the fallacy of the instrument,’ namely to use the instrument you know how to use just because it is the only instrument you know how to use.”
