The War is Over

wtc_demolition1

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has declared today that the new Administration in Washington will no longer use the term ‘War on Terrorism’.

I have Steve Reich’s Different Trains (1988) in mind using the disbelieving voice of an American Jew for his masterpiece in modern music.

So, the war is over.

    Steve Reich had referred to the first Al Qaeda attack of the World Trade Center in his piece City Life (1996). There he used the original voices of fire workers after the Twin Towers had been targeted on February 26, 1993.

    I have written some ideas about the rise of Al Qaeda during President Clinton’s term here:
