America, At War

...With the lawyers? Why do they hate our freedom?

From the March 2005 National Defense Strategy, available at http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Mar2005/d20050318nds2.pdf, on p. 5.

"Our strength as a nation state will continue to be challenged by those who employ a strategy of the weak using international fora, judicial processes, and terrorism."

I won't speculate as to whether this is just ham-handed drafting or actually is intended to mean what it says, but it sounds really bad when the US Gov't seems to equate those who use international fora and judicial processes with those use terrorism to challenge American strength...

Hat tip, Phillippe Sands.
