America is at war with a different type of enemy now. Unlike previous wars, this time we’re at war with terror so its more complicated than it seems. Fighting a nation isn’t as complicated as fighting terror because both sides clearly know the enemy but fighting terror is like fighting an invisible enemy; you don’t know their location and they usually hide within their people which makes it 10 times harder to target them. The only victims here are the innocent people that die from bullets flying everywhere in battle, or from drone attacks conducted by the United States.
