I'm Pro War

I used to think I was against war, but that was back when a war was between two countries and we fought until one side gave up. Now I am starting to understand the new concept of war and I'm all for it. Now you don't need to have a defined target to start a war, only a concept. First we had the war on drugs. There was no country, no side that we declared this war against. I was confused at first because I thought that drugs was a crime issue, but I guess the police weren't handling it correctly, so the U.S. declared a war on the thing. I don't ever remember hearing if the war on drugs was declared over, but I think drugs won.

Then there is our present war, the war on terror. Again, no country is the target, although we are pretty much destroying a couple of countries trying to capture and kill the perpetrators of this, uhm, crime. Looks like the U.S. is turning from military to police action again. I hope the target doesn't come out on top like drugs did in the last war.

So I'm pro war. No, not those two wars, but now that I understand this concept I'd like to propose a few more wars we need to get into.

The war against hunger would be a good one, and
the war against unemployment. That would be a dandy.
I'd re-up to fight the war on unemployment.
How about a war against racism, sexism, classism,
oh, and child abuse.
That might help in the war against unemployment too. First all the employed child abusers that went to prison would leave job openings for the law abiding unemployed to fill. And we'd also employ a bunch of construction crews to build all the new prisons we'd need.
How about a left wing coup against crooked politicians? Would that count as a war?

I invite you to smile at me with your best idea for a new, unwinnable war. I'm dying to hear from you.
