The Circus, Part II
The US war in Iraq is a political disaster against
the guerrillas - a half-trillion US dollars spent
there and in Afghanistan have left the United
States on the verge of defeat in both places. The
"shock and awe" military strategy has utterly
failed save to produce contracts for weapons
makers - indeed, it has also contributed heavily
to de facto US economic bankruptcy.
...among a host of other straws on the dromedary's
hump and all brought to you by the folks that gave you
Hiroshima. The state's monopoly on the use of force
has been unwittingly exported to any little group or
individual who wants to challenge that monopoly.
Like I've said, force always eats itself.
It's anarchy out there. Has it ever been otherwise?
