Java Iraq, Money, Religion, Ethics… Gay Roedy’s Health

ING Direct

Tangerine née ING Direct, advertises that if you give them $100 a month and the end of two years your savings will have grown to $2400. No kidding. That would also happen if I just stuffed the bills into a hole in your mattress.

Random Violence

It was always obvious to me that random violence against random victims, such as Americans bombing houses in Afghanistan and Iraq was pointless and self-defeating. But I have wondered what the effect of a more directed violence would be, e.g. targeting only those who order deaths, who shape pro-war opinions, who profit from war or environmental degradation. The Taliban seem to be experimenting with this approach targeting corrupt and turncoat politicians. Americans tend to assume the Taliban are stupid foolish people, but that is obviously not true, since they have managed to hold the Americans and cohorts with their unlimited war budget at bay for a decade. War is a like a magic trick. The soldiers are a distraction to make those attacked mistake who is really attacking them.
