Air Force of Terror

South Knox Bubba asks
But what exactly is the "War on Terror"? Who exactly is the enemy? What uniform do they wear? What flag do they fly? Where are they? What is our plan of attack? What is our strategy to defeat them? How will we know when we've won?

Based on this recent Bush/Cheney ad "Weapons" (which I heard on NPR this morning &mdash we don't do commercials any more) F18 Fighter Jets are a key weapon system in the War on Terror. Now, I kind of thought that the main use of fighter jets was to defend oneself against other fighter jets. So I ask

Where is the Air Force of Terror?
