Sample text

This was the messy and confusing picture of events in that month as gleaned from the mass media. The messiness and confusion in this picture emerged from an uncertainty of objectives. A ‘war against international terrorism’ could be coherently understood as a war against an abstraction – one Terrorism as War and War Against Terrorism 27 that had manifested itself in the happening world as an abstraction with such frightening consequences – that no political state could officially have any objection to fighting.

After the events of 11 September several media commentators asserted that the use of the word ‘war’ in ‘war against international terrorism’ had been ill advised. Several distinct arguments were offered to make this point. Some felt that the notion of a ‘war against international terrorism’ where ‘international terrorism’ is given as an abstraction – all terrorist (however defined) activity of whatever description and wherever – is meaningless. There is no realistic sense in which a war can be fought against such an amorphous and diverse entity.

That ideologically devoid character that had touched the term ‘international terrorism’ (despite its being ideologically loaded) in the course of the Cold War, became the predominant sense of ‘international terrorism’ after the Cold War: now it definitively became ideologically devoid and irresponsible political violence from irrational formations, directed against all humanity. This is, of course, not really an ideologically nonpartisan or universal position, but is often regarded as being so (I don’t elaborate on this here since that would only elongate this digression).
