It's the Neverending War.
I recently sent in my 2006 membership application to The American Legion. To be eligible, you have to have been in the United States Armed Services during wartime. "Wartime" for the United States is defined by them as Apr. 6, 1917-Nov. 11, 1918, Dec. 7, 1941-Dec. 31, 1946, June 25, 1950-Jan. 31, 1955, Feb. 28, 1961-May 7, 1975, Aug. 24, 1982-Jul. 31, 1984, Dec. 20, 1989-Jan. 31, 1990, Aug. 2, 1990-OPEN. So, according to the American Legion we are in something like The Neverending War, or the Thirty Years War (in the sixteenth year of it). Hal Rogers has voted to keep the U.S. in the current war; Kenneth Stepp will vote to bring home the American troops, and vote against any war powers resolutions. Vote for Kenneth Stepp for U.S. House, Kentucky Fifth District, and that is a vote to end The Neverending War, and to bring the U.S. Troops home from Iraq.
