    will never again be in harm's way as soldiers in our wars, barring tipping over hot cups of cappucino into their laps in the operations room 150 feet below the Nevada desert.  The fact that there will never again be American war casualties also means there will never again be an American peace movement as our nation officially embarks on permanent wartime status.

    The reality is that the only way for the designated "enemy" to retaliate will be to strike at our society and infrastructure:  terrorism.  This in turn will only serve to redouble war fever among the American populace.  As long as we as citizen-taxpayers are willing to pay for the drones, the Drone War will continue.  It's more than established that the only civilian deaths that bother us are our own.  When we conduct slaughter elsewhere, it's just more good ol' collateral damage.

    Permanent war, no American casualties, never again a peace movement.  Both pparties understand, agree and accept that this is the era we are now in.  There is no end to it.  The Drone War IS The Forever War.

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
