Yes all of this bares some similarity with a Gorilla war (e.g. vietnam)

No, the King Kong fighting took place in Indonesia and in New York. But it sounds as maybe I should see that movie (what was it called?) after all.

No doubt this view was supported by the media, knowing that the real story would not sell and be bad for patriotism. War isn't fun - at all.

No we are not at War!
It is a fabrication made up by the NEOCONS! Bush, Cheney et all.

At the very least for the USA you would think we could agree on whether we are in a full scale, full blown War or NOT, BUT we cannot.

If half or more of the voters think it is a Fabrication at worse or some simple police action /we need to understand them more and educate ourselves better/talk with them/stop stealing oil greedy selfish Americans no wonder so many hate Bush and his followers.
