Andrei Codrescu says the War on Drugs will be nothing compared to the War on Terrorism in this week’s Penny Post.
Why? Because terrorists consist mostly of idea-men.
The vagueness and abstraction of the War on Drugs was good: What drugs? Whose drugs? Big drugs? Small drugs? All those confusing questions made for a tangled abstract web that snared more good cops than a booby-trapped meth lab. Bug that was nothing compared with the War on Terrorism. With the exception of a few soldiers willing to blow themselves up — and of those who finace them — terrorists consist mostly of idea-men.
