    The enemy is not a nation or an army but a tactic, one that has existed for millennia. This war cannot be won, because a tactic cannot be eradicated. A war that cannot be won cannot end, and so it has not.

    These are the best wars. The war on drugs is another example. How do you win a war on drugs? The point was never to win, but to give more power to the government.

    I guess this deserves another posting of the quote from Göring: "the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
