Americans have become very apethetic and irritated by the war on terror, they no longer caRE.
And they need us to care.
I think Many people DO in fact Care. I think they are very interested in what's going on right now. Apathy and indifference are problems in some
respects, I will agree, but not as much as you may think. Personally, I think specifically dealing with the 'War on Terrorism', people are
seriously confused as to 'Who the True Enemy' is, not whether they should fight against them. I also think that questioning the direction we are
headed is a smart move for people to do, although they can't afford to sit around questioning too long either. Just look at the American History of
War on Drugs = More Drugs and More Drug Related Crime.
War on Poverty = More Homeless and Poor
War on Crime = Crime always on the rise and prisons continue overcrowding
War on Illiteracy = Tens of Millions still can't read or write and education has gone into the toilet
and the list continues.....Which would lead any person with even below average intelligence to the conclusion that,
War on Terrorism = More Terrorism and Terrorists
That just seems to be the pattern. If you were doing this in a scientific way, recording the results of multiple tests, by now you would have come to
the strong conclusion that when you have a 'War on (whatever)' you end up with more (whatever) than you started with.
As crazy as it sounds, using the scientific method and results obtained so far, it would seem to be in our best interest to have a "War on World
Peace" and/or "War on Compassion and Tollerance", since the pattern shows we'd end up getting more 'Peace and Tollerance' as a result. Go
