Vantage point

So the war has started. And with every war, comes a new stream of jargon. These are some of the new "globe"(IIML slang for 'high on verbosity low on content') terms I have read on CNN in the past 30 minutes that I was watching.

"Target of Opportunity" (ehhh?)
"A-Hour" (is it 3 hours before D-day, as Sunil asked?)
"Sustained Commitment" (Only an American and a politician would have to add 'sustained' before 'commitment'. Everywhere else, it is a given that commitment will be sustained....or else it isn't commitment at all)
