US President Barack Obama dumped George W. Bush's "war on terror" doctrine Thursday when he unveiled a national security strategy that calls for using America's still "unmatched" power less overtly. Obama also put new constraints on the former president's concept of pre-emptive war and cited national security implications of economic meltdowns, global warming, cyberwarfare, nuclear proliferation, and ethnic conflict.
