Steady As She Goes

The British generals are telling Brown to increase the number of troops Britain is sending to Afghanistan otherwise the British military will lose credibility with America!? That’s the best reason I ever heard, how about you?

Meanwhile on other imperial fronts we see more stability resulting from U.S. foreign policy as Pakistan wages war with the Taliban most likely in an effort to keep the U.S. happy so it won’t “liberate” Pakistan. Something like 3 million people have fled the fighting and 1,217 “militants” murdered (most likely women and children) thus the U.S. once again asserts its stabilizing influences.

You can’t say we don’t do good work. According to Patrick Cockburn…


Iraq is deemed the third most corrupt country in the world after Burma and Somalia, out of 180 countries, according to the corruption index compiled by Transparency International.

To think that over one million died for this.

I see that Somalia beats Iraq and of course Somalia is one of the fronts for our war on terror or what ever we call it these days. We certainly have the Midas touch when it comes to stability. That’s the U.S., creating democracy, spreading freedom and stability wherever we go. You just have to watch your feet so you don’t trip over the bodies or slip on the blood soaked ground.
