Short post

I just saw a bumper sticker I'd never seen before--it said

"War never solved anything--except for fascism, Nazism and communism."

I've seen that bumper sticker too. I think I agree with their general premise, that war has solved some immeadiate threats. I would reference the leader of a certain fanatic regieme in Germany in the 1930's and 40's, but apparently that automatically disqualifies me from any further discussion.

However, I think it is notable and ironic that none of those problems are really solved. I hope the person sporting that sticker realizes that China, not to mention Cuba and North Korea, is communist. Furthermore, there are plenty of Nazi movements still in existence around the world. Nazism is a subset of facism, so it seems silly to list those seperately, but facism is still alive and well today across the globe including in America. So, although direct threats made in the name of those idealogies have been defeated in war they have not been themselves defeated.

And communism wasn't really defeated by war - more by spending.

Let's just change the bumper sticker then: "War never solved anything- except getting rid of those damn injuns."
