There is a fairly big difference here. A not insignificant
number of Americans have always opposed that "war". You
are unlikely to find a signifant number opposed to a war
on terrorism.

It is of course open to speculation whether a war on terrorists
is more difficult than a war on drugs.

No Anders, I'd have to disagree. I'd be with Brian and Miriam
on this one. While I'd hope to be clever enough to find ways
to live, if one can find ideas which offer ways for one's death
to have extropic value then they are worthy of consideration.

The case in point were the people who attempted to retake
United Flight 93.
