Our War On Drugs.

Ask yourself where this article is leading - what is it asking you to conclude?

Then ask yourself who would benefit from that conclusion.

Is this a new way to justify moving against another Sovereign nation state and take over?

Our War On Drugs.

Post by Saint_ »

Simple - total chaos. It's funny that we never learned the lesson of Prohibition, despite all the gangland violence during that time period.

So, we've been waging the "War on Drugs" for what now, twenty years? Drugs are cheaper, more powerful, and more available than ever. Worse yet the violence level is rising.

I have to visit most of my friends from the 70s in the graveyard these days thanks to drugs and alcohol. So I'm certainly not an advocate of drug use, but what we're doing now sure doesn't seem to be working....:(

This could be leading to something more nasty in the future. I agree.Tricky Dick Nixon actually, scrat, though Reagan did a more effective job selling it to the public and got congress to pour major bucks into it.

Do you think the rising acceptance of medical marijuana will change the way the "war" is fought?

I read a story today about a Canadian cold front moving into the states, Now I wonder if we are just saying theses cold fronts are from Canada so we can over throw them.:D

I seem to recall we kicked your butt last time.

The cold fronts are just a taunt. Bring it on. :D

Given the source - "The U.S. Army War College's Strategic Studies Institute" - I'm not sure it's that big a jump
