The Futility of War on Ideals
For some reason or another we as citizens have accepted waging war on ideals. Our country used to try and enhance peaceful struggles instead of condoning military conflict. I believe in some aspects of the "war on terror", but I see it for what it truly is, propaganda; and as bob dylan said "propoganda all is phony". The name exhibits a patriotic theme that creates an environment where people can be called traitors if they don't believe in the "war on terror" (say aloud "i don't support the 'war on terror'" and see how it doesn't exactly sound right). We are never going to win the war against terrorists until we can clearly define a region, country or group to attack. Otherwise it will end up like the war on drugs, and we all know how that is going!
