    •  How about war on global warming? (0+ / 0-)

      We can make making hardware for energy efficiency and renewable energy at least as profitable for our MIC firms as making weapons to fight against terrorists.  And we can buy coal as mineral rights for the same price as coal dug up and put on a train and call it carbon capture and storage and very virtuous in the war on global warming.  Isn't there some way to make war on global warming as glorious and patriotic as World War II was?  We fought WW II to make the world safe for Democracy.  We can fight the war against global warming to make the world safe for Agriculture--so we all can eat.
