1. Being sexually deprived because your spouse, boyfriend, fiance, ect has to be apart of all of it.
2.A "peace" keeping effort tried by Bush, but American soldiers are dieing and where the fuck is Bin Laden?
Why do you seem so sad today?
Because my boyfriend is gone for a year and all you're doing is complaining you haven't seen yours in 2 days.
I don't know whether to fear a bunch of ragtag freedom fighters from another country, or my own government's 1984
We are waging a war on terror and we don't even know who the fuck the real enemy is.
You don't wage war on an idea!
Terrorism is not even a mindset.
It's just a method of a group to get their message out to the world.
Waging a War on Terror is like waging a war on the color blue.
The War on Terror is basically the same as the War on Drugs
Realist 1: Have you heard, the Americans are calling their invasion of Iraq "the war on terror"?
Realist 2: Who said they don't understand irony?
War On Terror: A futile war on an abstract term. Is in fact a oxymoron as surely war is a form of terror? Is completely self defeating as bombing people, invading their countries and taking their oil is a hardly a method for making people love the west and renounce violence. violence begets violence, an eye for an eye and the whole world is blind. If Iraq is revenge however, it is wayy out of proportion- 200,000 civilians dead for the 3000 dead on 9/11. And none of the terrorists were iraqi.
war on drugs- supply and demand, people want high, they get high. no stopping it. Equally pointless as war on terror.
a political catch phrase that gives news media boobs like those in CNN
and FOX News
something to package up and present as entertainment for the armchair warrior
s to watch on TV and cheer while the economy continues its decline unnoticed.
1. the phrase "war on terror" was used by some Congress
members when Libya
and the United States
forces were fighting in 1986. The Libyan government was accused of orchestrating terrorist attacks all around the Mediterrean Sea, the Middle East
2. when Bill Clinton
launched missile attacks against al-Qaida
bases in Afghanistan
and the Sudan
in 1998, the term "war on terror" was also used.
3. after the horrible 9/11
attacks the term "war on terror" was used once again, this time George W. Bush
4. Come to think of it, with the various definitions of "terror" maybe there's always been a War On Terror thruout most of history. Fancy cutesy-wutsey
terms boost ratings and sell papers. After all, we've had a "War On Drugs
", the Cold War
ended in 1989, and when I was in the San Francisco
Feels like something straight out of a D-rated comic book.
It looks like Bush, Osama, and Saddam all read the same fucking comic book for their War on Terror.
