    "War on Terror" VS "War on Drugs" and "War on Crime"

    Advertisements
    Do you feel that our "new"/"old" Anti-Terror stance has forced law enforcement and others to slack and ignore the "War on Drugs" and "War on Crime" that we've been fighting for decades?

    Do you feel that this change/slack has actually made crime and drugs (inner-city, white collar, all forms - however you want to say it) worse and more able to thrive?

    If you DO feel that this new "war" has parmitted change/slack - do you think this should be a reason for us to back off of terrorism and put new effort into organized crime and drugs, etc?


    I was watching a show on the History Channel about the history of Organized Crime and this point was brought up several times.

    I feel that anytime you wage war on anything all you do is create more of what you want to end.

    I'm afraid I agree - attention and focus seems to stir anger and retaliation and more of the same action in rebellion.
