I'm Dick Cheney and I approve this violence

Others are far more eloquent on this subject, but this is just completely fucked up.

If only we didn't have The Neverending War on Terror of Al-Qaeda Christian-Baby-Eating Sharia-Law-Worshipping Mullah Soldiers of Muhammad Who Want To Invade and Control America, Burn Our Bibles and Behead Us keeping us from multitasking and risking pissing off China - the country that owns us - to maybe possibly do something for the people of Burma. Perhaps we can send them a nice fruitcake for Christmas. I'm sure the war with Iran will be all wrapped up by then.

Burma? What good are they? What natural resources do they have that Halliburton and Bechtel could exploit? Human rights -- that's sooo 1990s.

Hey Tom,

Burma's got oil and gas. They supply it to China.

Lest we forget that part of the impetus for bombing Iran is because China and Iran signed a huge oil deal.

China holds our debt and recently threatended to start dumping dollars.

If they did, our economy would collapse. No more wars on terrors for Bushie if he can't float debt.

Thus the Bushies are desperate to get leverage over China. Right now Iran seems to be the ticket.

But Bush didn't miss his mark to take a pop shot at Burma/Myanmar during his UN appearnance....If only BushCo wasn't pre-occupied overstretching our military, we'd bein Burma by now.

Now Darfur and Rwanda, I have two words for those people if they want to get help:

Find Oil

Over the past 6+ years, snark has become truth. Disturbing. And you know those areas are truly fucked up when American "help" would actually be more beneficial than what's going on there now.

But the West will never care about those regions. Even Clinton said his greatest regret was not dealing with Rwanda immediately. The whole system is broken. Exploitation, then mea culpas down the road.

hi Randal,

in some ways the world and humans have never changed.

It's always been about empire, conquest, exploitation, raping, pillaging, and plundering.

Man has always wanted to dominate the entire world.

Randal Graves said...

Absolutely, and though that will never change - being the tribal primates that we are - you'd like to think that at some point we could at least work towards devoting less energy to conquering and destroying our fellow humans. But as long as there are resources to be exploited...
