Joanna! Wash your nostrils out with soap. Don't you realize that the end of war would ruin the economy in the United States? Jeez, you're going to have John Boehner climbing all over buddha-l, calling us down for promoting job-killing pacifism (along with job-killing tax increases, job-killing environmental regulations, job-killing health care and job-killing immigration reform).
