Since 2002 the Bush White House has embraced a policy that it calls preemption, or preventive war. The new policy calls for the U.S. to go on the offensive when it believes that an enemy is gathering the capability to attack, even though the time, place, or even likelihood of an enemy move is unknown and perhaps far in the future.
