What is the official name of the war the US is in now?
Technically speaking, the US is at war with no one. All past wars of the US have involved NATIONS (COUNTRIES); with the exception(s) of the Indian Wars (aka Frontier Wars 1620-1890) and even they were referred to as the "Indian Nations" (a war against "Nations"). Currently, the US, according to former President Bush Jr., is combating terrorists, under the title of the "GLOBAL WAR AGAINST TERRORISM" (or the "Global War on Terrorism"). Two on-going campaigns involved with this war are: Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. This "Global War on Terrorists" is in the same vein as "the war on drugs" and the "war on crime"; again NO NATION is being fought...as is the traditional enemy when defining "a war." Bottom line: The official name of this war is the "Global War on Terrorism" (or the "Global War Against Terrorism").
