A byproduct of the arts of peace.
We are a nation at war.

There are two types of war:

1) Normal style war: Something noone pays attention to.
2) American style war: Something that causes the whole world to make it a habit to watch CNN/NBC/Sky News/etc. for hours every day and talk to their friends about what new goodies America has at her disposal.
1) Bob: "Heard of the war going on in *insert some unknown 3rd world country*?"
Joe: "Nope, who gives a shit"
2) Bob: "I heard America are gonna start the war tonight!!!"
Joe: "Kewl, the last two wars were fun but were a little short, I heard they got this new bomb that causes FUBAR to a larger area than that MOAB, that should be fun to watch"

A steamy hot gay friendly nightclub with cheap drink and plenty of debauchery! Takes place in Andrew's Lane theatre every Friday. The general concensus in WAR is nobody gives a shit what people think, it's like a way of life
