What Does Victory in the GWOT Look Like?

One of the questions people used to ask back when we first started out on this venture was "What would victory in a 'War on Terror' look like?"  The concept behind the question was that, if you couldn't convincingly describe the victory conditions, it was unlikely you could achieve them.

There were a number of answers offered, some better than others, but as far as I know a final answer has never been agreed upon.  I think we might agree, however, that this is the sort of thing that would represent... let's call it a milestone.

Osama Bin Laden told his children to live peacefully in the West where they would get a good education, his brother-in-law has revealed.

Zakaria al-Sadah, whose sister is the fifth wife of the Al-Qaeda leader, said Bin Laden did not want his children and grandchildren following in the same path of terrorism like him. 'He told his own children and grandchildren, go to Europe and America and get a good education,' according to an interview with Sadah in The Sunday Times.

Now, all you folks out there on MISTs worldwide, your job is to make sure the entire world understands this.  The man who led the war died in hiding.  Before finally being hunted down and killed by American commandos, he begged his children to move to the West, get a Western education, and live in peace.
