Stacy Summary: Financial busts and fake enemies really go hand in hand, don’t they? America has had fake enemy after fake enemy at an ever increasing rate and it never seems to stop working. I think the latest bout of fake war would be more fun, however, if we could compete, like during the Cold War, against our fake enemies in the Olympics. Imagine if the Taliban and alQaeda sent teams to compete in downhill skiing, basketball or gymnastics? At least we would then be able to claim some ‘victories’ in the endless fake war.
