These are both wars on an ideology. The war on drugs has never been won and will never be won. Neither will the war on "terror" in my opinion.
My questions are, Do you think the war on terror will ever be won? Do you see the correlation between the two wars? Can you explain how a war on an idea can be won? And how long do want us to keep fighting those wars?

Both are a loss. Seems we declare war on things just to make the politicians look like they are doing something and throw money at.

Funny, I just replied to a post about this in another group. There will always be terrorism, and there will always be people who have more than others in terms of wealth but there should NEVER be people living on less than a dollar a day. There should never be people living without clean drinking water, when we play in parks of it year round. There may not be a way to eradicate those two things completely, but there is a way to scale them down greatly.
And yes, the "war" on terror in intertwined with the war on poverty. People will always fight or lash out when they feel they've been wronged or see injustices going on around them.

As long as there are people, there will be extremist and terrorists. As long as there are people, there will be a drug trade. Drug dealers and drug users. we need to find a way to minimize the problem .
Not interfering in other countries is one way, showing good faith on our part by not doing the things we ask others not to do is a start .
Legality of drugs never stopped or started anyones drug use / abuse. Poverty is the biggest motivator for drug use, as well as depression and lack of education. Knowing that, we need to work on THOSE problems to minimize the drug problem in America.
