Just Say No

Just as the Reagan administration manufactured the War on Drugs in the 1980s, the Bush administration has manufactured the War on Terror.

In "Waiting to Get Blown Up," a 7/27 Washington Post article, even the soldiers on the ground see the futility of these made up wars:

"At this point, it seems like the war on drugs in America," added Spec. David Fulcher, 22, a medic from Lynchburg, Va., who sat alongside Steffey. "It's like this never-ending battle, like, we find one IED, if we do find it before it hits us, so what? You know it's just like if the cops make a big bust, next week the next higher-up puts more back out there."
