Casualties of War


I write my column Causalities of War in TCS Daily on 21 April 2005.
Does the fight against cancer have lessons for the fight against terror?
President Richard Nixon launched the war on cancer in 1971. Obviously, that war is still ongoing, but the National Institutes of Health is optimistic that we will see a victory of sorts around 2015. The War on Drugs was started in 1981 by Ronald Reagan. It is still ongoing, but even its long-term success is doubtful. The War on Terror was started in 2001 and it is just as broad, just as unbounded as these others.

What can we learn from the fates of these three "wars"?
