The "War on stress" that is declared in "The IT crowd", Episode "Calamity Jen". 87.166.125.108 (talk) 20:52, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

The War on Piracy is definitely a thing. Somebody back me up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.51.221.118 (talk) 17:49, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

No "war on obesity"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.215.253.224 (talk) 06:51, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Ordering[edit]

Would it make sense to reorder the sections chronologically? So, mention Hoover's "War on Crime" and Johnson's "War on Poverty" first, as they seem to be the first cited uses of this metaphor pattern, and then the others in order? Or is there some logic to the current ordering that eludes me? --Jim Henry (talk) 03:08, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

It is currently in alphabetical order, except that the ones where there is not much said are all grouped at the bottom. Chronological order seems to make sense to me but you would still have the issue of what to do with "wars" about which we give only one or two sentences. Yaris678 (talk) 11:35, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Is this really an encyclopedic topic? What sources are there for this?[edit]

What reliable sources can be found for this article? -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk) 23:42, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

I'll check the discussion. Thanks for the speedy reply. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk) 00:26, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
Cool. If you still think it should be deleted, go ahead and take to a full WP:AfD request.--Mike Selinker (talk) 04:08, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

cancer[edit]

Cancer is not a concept but an abnormality in cell division that can be empirically observed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.225.213.29 (talk) 22:36, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

The article is a war on concepts, not on fictional things -- your argument is invalid. Just because it's real doesn't mean that it makes sense to "wage a war" on it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.248.250.144 (talk) 03:19, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
