The five wisest sentences you'll read all year.

As well as that humorous look at McCain's defeat, yesterday's Guardian had an excellent article by Jonathan Steele Now he must declare that the war on terror is over". An example:

If the most important single thing that Obama should do quickly is to announce the immediate closure of Guantánamo Bay, the corollary has to be a declaration that the war on terror is over. Accept that terrorism is a technique. It is not an ideology. The west faces no global enemy, no worldwide Islamofascist conspiracy. Foreign crises should be treated on a case-by-case basis.

Amen to that.
