Declaring war on waging war

It is hard to keep up with all the wars we are fighting. We have a war in Iraq. We have a war against drugs; a war with immigrants; a war on obesity. I think we should change the name war to "peace." Let's wage peace. Let's welcome immigrants to our country. Let's have treatment centers for all people who are using drugs. Let's bring back physical education to our schools to help curb obesity problems. There are other wars and there are other solutions. But first we must want a just and peaceful world. And not call everything a war.
