Rhetorical Wreckage

They take every logical fallacy
and flip it on its tail.
The fallacies work on most, you see,
so they always make the sale.

Goodie, GNT! Scores for attitude, ryhthmn, story, poetic imagery! That's packin' a helluva lot into exactly 100 characters.

And so many ways it might be interpreted... so I'm looking forward to the Twabbledribble *hint* hint*

Coco squeaked his nose and bent down to give his bucket of torn bank notes the regulation stir.

He hated paying his taxes.

I went into the situation with my eyes wide open. Opened by a knife that is, fluid covering my face. I couldn't see a thing.

God told them, "Cleanliness is next to godliness." Then he smote all who bathed, for HIS was the only godliness allowed.

I always suspected "next to godliness" was a dangerous place to be.

War: The ever increasing technological race for one side to destroy the other.

Peace: what happens when both sides win.

Hmm. Maybe, but war doesn't require technology, or changing technology.

Also, according to my (Devil's) dictionary:

Conflict: More than one person in the same county.
War: The conflict becomes more important than life's necessities.
Peace: A hypothetical state that might exist if no life was present.

I was thinking Dr.Strangelove, here, so I think your definitions apply. Especially regarding "Peace."
