  War Clubs
Club swinging is an ancient warrior art associated with the Aryan gods of India and once widely taught by American physical educators at the turn-of-the-century.
Indian clubs increase the momentum of the pendulum (this is the circular nature of club swinging).
The evolutions which the clubs are made to perform, in the hands of one accustomed to their use, are exceedingly graceful, and they vary almost without limit.

 Sierra Club Rift Opens Over Stance on Iraq
The Sierra Club is threatening to disband a Utah chapter whose leaders are speaking out against the U.S. threat of invading Iraq, openly defying a decision by the venerable environmental group to avoid a formal stance on the war issue.
Although the club hasn't taken a poll, the Glen Canyon group says its views mirror those of most of the 700,000 members and should be reflected in the organization's official position on war with Iraq.
Sierra Club officials said privately that nothing is likely to happen to the board members of the Utah group unless they force the issue by ratcheting up their criticisms.

 i-Club -- Forums - War Supporters Follow Anti-War Rallies
Sure it's your right and sure you may not support the war but denouncing your government in public in that manner is just disrespectful to the troops on the ground.
If America were not behind the war in it's infancy (at least a majority) it would have never passed in Congress as the people that voted for it are essentially an extension of the citizens they represent.
I think this whole perception of the war is merely a paradox of the changing ethics in America.

 Points Summer Book Club: War and peace
So long as people experience war as a paint ball game we are subject to stumbling into the real thing every other generation or so.
Adding to the fog is the tendency of the military to get directions from antiquated road maps, to underestimate the ferocity of technology because their technology is itself classified.
I don’t believe wars are inevitable, but I find it difficult to transcend the message in Barbara Tushman’s masterful “The March of Folly”.

Discounting entirely the Cold War and just focusing on major conflicts in the 20th Century it is hard to think about Presidents who have not been “War Presidents.” But I just don’t remember the rest of them making it a campaign slogan.
The other reason that Bush seems to be claiming that he is a War President is so the dismal state of the economy really can’t be blamed on him.
But wait, the costs of the War(s) {War on Terrorism, Afghanistan, and Iraq} have to be good for at least the military industrial complex.

Club War: At the end of a round (all players have made a 3-digit number), any player may shout "Clubs" if all the cards in a row or column are clubs.
If there is a Club War, all players must turn their cards over on the Number Club Mat and play the round again.

 The forgotten veterans: Once-neglected monument in South Park honors war nurses
Although the original mission of the nurses club was to promote educational opportunities for nurses and develop community interest in nursing, it later added commemorating war nurses to its list.
Like other club members, Blanc had participated in the military's nurse cadet program and had committed herself to war service, but the war ended before she could get there.
World War I nurses were the first military nurses to deal with wounds that were not the result of personalized combat, but rather of machine guns and poisonous gases.

 AlterNet: The Sierra Club's Civil War
What resulted were three separate national club resolutions--one that instead condemned Iraqi aggression and called for the dismantling of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, another that encouraged club members to focus on energy policies, and a third that forbade club members from using the club's name to make public statements about military conflicts.
The club didn't release its November resolutions to the media as it normally does, and it wasn't until the Glen Canyon Four threw the first grenade in the club's latest sagebrush rebellion that most members heard about the resolutions.
Still frustrated by the club's seeming lack of progressive ideals, Sierra Club members, led by the Glen Canyon Four, are banding together to introduce a strongly worded anti-war referendum that the general membership will vote on in the spring, likely after war breaks out.

 Jeffrey St. Clair: The War Club
The Sierra Club, the organization he almost single-handedly built into a global green powerhouse, has become so cowardly since his death two years ago that now it refuses even take a stand against war, which Brower believed to be the ultimate environmental nightmare.
The most disgusting internal crackdown came last year in a spiteful attack on Moisha Blechman, a Sierra Club activist in New York City, who was smeared with accusations of the most scurrilous kind, mainly because she was too green for the cautious twerps who run the Club.
And apparently war is okay with the Club as long as it's the result of a consensus process (even if the UN consensus was brokered by bullying and bribery)-although how the environment suffers any less under this feel-good scenario remains a mystery.

 Has the Drug War Created an Officer Liars' Club?
Because the political rhetoric described a holy war in which evil had to be defeated, questioning police tactics was equivalent to supporting drug abuse.

 The Belmont Club: Pre-war Intelligence
Everyone in the known universe knew deep in their dirty little hearts that the reason for the war was to prevent a (eventually) nuclear-armed Saddam Hussein from controlling "ALL" of the Middle-Eastern oil.
I agree: the major PR problem was that the Administration allowed the legal case, based primarily on failure to comply with the cease-fire, and the strategic argument - that the current mafiosi running Middle Eastern governments must be wacked - to be ellided, ultimately resulting in the former eclipsing the latter.
The problem was that they had already launched their war sales jubilee with the arresting image of a smoking gun in the shape of a mushroom cloud.

 War - Club Penguin Wiki - a Wikia wiki
During a war, penguins take sides with the group of their choosing, usually by changing colors and/or clothing, and throw snowballs at the opposing groups.
Many variants also appear during the war, such as having a group "princess" or "prince", who is often pretending to be trapped.
For example, at one war, a "princess" was trapped in fictional quicksand and had to be rescued by saying a "spell", which in reality, was more like a password.

 Conservative Book Club: War Stories: Operation Iraqi Freedom by Oliver North
In War Stories: Operation Iraqi Freedom he sweeps aside the empty, second-hand chatter of liberal pundits to give you a riveting, eyewitness account of the heroism, courage, and unflagging patriotism of the American military forces that ended Saddam Hussein's bloody tyranny.
This isn't a book about generals and admirals; North introduces you to the young warriors who put their lives on the line -- the victors who now hope that their stunning triumph won't be stolen from them by naysayers, critics, and the antiwar crowd.
With the authority of an eyewitness and a combat veteran, North succinctly skewers the conventional view of the Iraq war, asking simply: "What quagmire?" He unblinkingly refutes accusations of Pentagon planning blunders, shortages of food, fuel, and ammunition, rejection by the Iraqi people, and the expectations of huge American casualties.
