Human Rights


In nature, things grow to maturity then stop. Only cancer and human business aspire to continuous, endless growth.

Bait and Switch War

The Afghan war was a classic bait and switch. Bush started the war ostensibly to catch bin Laden. It quickly come clear bin Laden was not in Afghanistan, and by the US military’s own estimate there were less than 100 Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. Did the war stop? Nope. Bush redirected it against the Taliban, presumably to wrest from them the prize of prizes, the Saudi Arabia of lithium (and other strategic minerals) and to revive the trillion dollar a year heroin trade the Taliban had utterly squashed.
