Blair's War on Militant Islam or Obama's Contingency Overseas Operation?

Now that Bush's War on Terror is gone, what will replace it? The Obama administration offered contingency overseas operation. Quartet Envoy Tony Blair said the world needed to wage war on militant Islam. Consider his words:

"In the use of hard power, we have to understand one very simple thing: where we are called upon to fight, we have to do it. If we are defeated anywhere, we are at risk of being defeated everywhere."

That sounds like the kind of blanket tripe that sells books and books speeches.
