Just revisted an interesting article by Gore Vidal that I read 4 years ago – called The Enemy Within and written in The Indepedent newspaper. For the most part I would say that he’s bang on the button. Here’s one interesting quote from it:

We have only outdone the Romans in turning metaphors such as
the war on terrorism, or poverty, or Aids into actual
wars on targets we appear, often, to pick at random in
order to maintain turbulence in foreign lands.
