This time: “The Long War”. How clever. Extend the amount of time we can be at war, uh…forever now. LOL. These guys are unreal. This long war concept goes back to January and is part of Gingrich’s “7 Point Plan”:
The third step is establishing a “theory and system” for winning the Long War with the Irreconcilable Wing of Islam.” Gingrich suggests the war could last as long as 70 years, and complains that there is no central guidance for this new struggle on par with George Kennan’s 1949 “Long Telegram” and Paul Nitze’s 1950 NSC-68, both documents that described the problem of, and proposed a policy for, defeating the Soviet Union in the Cold War. Gingrich says that theory must be developed, as well as a strategy for keeping weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of dictators or rogue regimes that might give them to terrorists.
