Bad Writing IV

From a Survivor Philippines outdoor ad: "Here, the fiercest battle is not a war."

Of course it isn't, "war" doesn't fall under the category of "battle." There is no battle that can be considered a "war," just battles that are part of a larger war. Anyway, the rest of the ad says that your worst enemy could come from your tribe so the proper headline should be something like: "Here, the fiercest battle is not with your enemies."
