Let's see, we have the War On Terror, the Iraq War, the Afghanistan War, and, oh yes, the War on Drugs. All of these are Just Wars of course because my country is the protagonist in each one, and my country would not do anything that was unjust. According to the official pronouncements of our government, we are winning all four of those wars. So, tell william, do you honestly feel safer now than you did a year ago? Five years ago? Ten years ago?

William's Whimsical Words:

Don't worry, all the current conflicts are just wars; we forgot about and lost the War on Poverty a long time ago.
