New! (Now with 50% More Ambiguity - Free!)

The New York Times reported today that the Bush administration is changing the slogan "war on terror"® to "global struggle against violent extremism."®

The new slogan sounds familiar:

ji·had also je·had (j-häd)
n.
  1. A Muslim holy war or spiritual struggle against infidels.
  2. A crusade or struggle: "The war against smoking is turning into a jihad against people who smoke" (Fortune)
(Emphasis mine.)

BONUS: Slate's Fred Kaplan doesn't know whether to laugh or cry.
