They're telling us the war in Iraq could go on for decades, cost us a trillion dollars, ruin millions of lives, result in the los of our freedoms. But that's already happened in the other war- the war on drugs.

Thirty years, tens of millions imprisoned, a cost over a trillion dollars, and what can only be described as a police state compared with life as we once knew it- that's the war on drugs. Perhaps with the passing of the "Greatest Generation" it will become possible for rational people to influence public policy here- we can only hope.

Because, compared to the War on Drugs, the war in Iraq is just an infant.
