How we will know the war has been won

johnny_cover". . . War Against Terrorism - a war without borders or horizon, without territory to conquer and occupy and administrate although we will find territory and occupy and administrate something because that is how we will know the war has been won . . . ."

-- Christopher Trumbo in an essay about his father, Dalton Trumbo, blacklisted writer of "Johnny Got His Gun." If you haven't read the book, maybe you've seen the 1971 movie or heard the 1940 radio play of it starring James Cagney.
