Game Theory: The ball is rolling...

...A game of brinkmanship being played out, keeping millions on the edge of the seat while the rest of the world is lulled into complacency. Such tit for tat provocations leave either party little leeway for a middle ground. The Iranians seem pretty sure of exacting a heavy price in the event of hostilities, and they will not go down without a ferocious fight when that happens...

The Only Hope For the World

I see only one way out; a metamorphic leap of faith, an about face in the way we think, a decision to let go of everything that we, as a nation, once held dear, an understanding that the world will surely end unless we recognize the fact that we have no choice but to embrace our enemy as our brother, the one, without whom, we will never find peace, a brother-in-arms, enchained from head to toe, with whom we will either drown, or, together, might be allowed to live for yet another day....

The Morality of Neoconservatism

...If "we win" the war in Iraq, and become "foreigners in a foreign land" trying to tell the Iraqi people how they ought to live their lives, just about how long (and how many billions of dollars later) might it take before we eventually have to pull out (or are run out) as a result of all the violence and chaos such a takeover will give rise to? But then, what if we end up losing the war, if our efforts lead to a conflagration that might begin to spread throughout The Middle East and perhaps even to the rest of the world---- even to a conflict that might become the arch genesis of WW III?

Players rely on the use of conspiracies to violate citizen rights so that they can make obscene profits and use those profits to entrench their social, economic, and political power. Witness the war-profiteering factor in the Iraq War.

Money-power players also depend on citizen-rights-violating, criminal conspiracies to collapse government's checks and balances into unconstitutional collusions between agencies and branches -- to avoid criminal prosecution of any of the cronies. Witness Bush still free -- despite his many obvious criminalities -- to continue his nation-imploding of the US.

Among those many criminalities is his ordering the invasion of Iraq. And this is not about the many national and international criminalities that he has committed since the invasion. This is just about the invasion...

A World Lit by Energy Warfare

...Now, will a US pullout bring stability to the Middle East? Also realistically, does a continuing occupation of Iraq provide stability? The mounting US internal and external debt alone is bringing the wolf to the door; in fact many doors, and they are met with funeral cries in American and Iraqi households...
