Remember Lyndon Baines Johnson's "War On Poverty"?
Are there less poor persons today?
How about the War on Terrorism? Many intelligent pundits have eloquently explained that it creates and sustains the problem it was ideologically designed to control (or stamp out).
I think it's the same with the War on Drugs.
This cruel "war" was mostly an excuse to arm people and bring Left-leaning groups throughout South and Central America to their knees.
It's refreshing to hear these leaders speak in terms of caring, treatment, and humanity in the place of always "Das Boot."
Any counter-narrative to that of war (no matter how the premise is framed) is a good thing... as it takes air out of the tent that Mars-rules assembled.
Any alternatives to the premise of war brings the prospect of other than destruction! What a novel thought!
