I found a particular line in a blog interesting:

“For us, the war was over in a few years. The enemy surrendered and were no longer a threat,” he said. “For soldiers today, the war is never over; the enemy is never defeated.” The result, he added, is “a state of perpetual anxiety that the rest of the country doesn’t experience.” …

(h/t: theospark)

It reminded me of the book 1984 and the constant war which was being perpetrated on the population such that existence of calm justice was not known.  Note how I say that – peace isn’t the absence of war.  It is the presence of calm justice.  Anyways, the sentences above reminded me of George Orwell and I used that in the title and allusion.
