Both are all about salesmanship , As long as there are weapons dealers there's always gonna terrorists wanting to buy those weapons , And since there are so many people hooked on drugs , Its a race to see who can make the best drugs to be sold to all the terrorists , One works hand in hand with the other hence the old saying " The best salesman in the world Sells nothing but rather creates within the public Eye an intrest to buy" .
Neither, we can't win a war were supply can't be stopped and people in the world demand the **** constantly. War on terror, these muther ******* don't wear uniforms to distinguish themselves from a normal everyday civilian. Can't defeat a enemy that hides behind the public. They come out when threats to their ob<x>jective's have their backs to them orthere are a hundred civilians to make as cover. We have to hunt them down flush them out caves and kick in the doors of the public to find them hiding in "non-combatants" homes; sad thing is they hide in plain sight. They will just as soon kill a thousand of their own kids for 1 "Westerner". How do you defeat that type of mentallity? Its impossible. <br />
To all you who think that terrorism is political propoganda. Where were you 9/11/01? I must be confused, I thought it was 19 Foreign muslim extremists (15 whom were Saudi), pulled off them attacks. I was not aware that it was 15 US senators 3 congressmen and the President that took down them planes; and killed all them innocent men woman and children. I am not even going to bother going into all the attacks prior to 9/11. Good luck with your beliefs. Hell it only came at the cost of your fellow Americans lives.
The War of Public Opinion.
"The war on terror" as it was identified about ten years ago appears to have been won. When was the last terrorist attack? There was far more terrorism taking place in the 1970's than at any time after about 2005.<br />
The war on drugs will be next to impossible to win. It will remain a war until someone or something develops a drug that will easily cure substance addiction with almost no side-effect.<br />
RESPONSE TO COMMENT:<br />
I'm keeping a close eye on you.......one wrong move........
The War on Drugs is never gonna end, because of the way it's categorized. Not all drugs are bad. But most of them are and they are the one's that are addicting. As for the War on Terror, that's a whole lot of bullshit. It was given that name after 9/11, which came about because of the US Government. It's all a bunch of rabble.
They are both with us to stay.
The war on Drugs can not be won--- it is a social problem--- remove the cause and you remove Drugs,nobody wants to be a Junky.<br />
The war on Terror can not be won--- it does not exist--- it is only real in the minds of the American Elite,<br />
Look at Roman History.<br />
The war on Terror, its regulated by laws and rules and has set definitions that can be understood. The war on drugs while it has obvious aspects, it also goes deeper into the human soul, and that war is much harder to win.
Like Liverpool vs. United..........some wars are unwinnable :)
The war on the taxpayers, I think. We will all be on the streets.
Well non since there is no way to actually end this a war on terror is basically fighting anyone who wants war. So basically your fighting a metaphor same as drugs there will never be an end since we can't end drugs or terrorism its just a way of life
How can you win something which you started?
