Cover Story

Many of us have made fun of the term “War on Terror” as it implies combating a tactic rather than those who employ it. It’s generally attributed to the Bush Administration which uses the term to justify just about everything under the sun. But I was surprised to find out how far back the term actually goes.

I was looking at old Time magazine covers online when I ran across this one from almost 30 years ago (October 1977).

Looking around at the old Time covers it strikes me how many I actually remember. Long before blogs or the internet, I read a lot of news magazines and the covers have stuck with me.

So we've been fighting this supposed war on terror for almost 30 years. I'm sure it will continue for another 30 more. Its truly a war without end as long as American politicians choose to exploit terrorism by other nations to spread fear and anxiety in their own country.
