Headline writers are funny.

As if we ever really take the military card off the table? The USG never actually limit its options, especially the military option. Does anyone, at home or abroad, who is over twenty actually believe that we limit our options?

1. This is just sickening.
As if we haven't created enough instability and suffering. The article states that the removal of the chemical weapons is in the hands of the UN, not the Syrian government. One would think we want war, or something.

2. What if killing were off the table?
For everyone? For us, for the rebels, which, by now, must be in at least ten factions, for Assad, for Israel?

Is anyone (beside Yoko and John) able to even imagine such a thing?

We are such an inadequate species.

3. I believe
the Neo-Cons are as firmly in control as they were under Bush. As soon as they can gin up an excuse for war, probably under Hillary, we will be in a war of huge proportions. Most likely against Iran.

Did you watch the Super Bowl? See all the militarism on display? You tell me. Ultra-nationalism. A complete merger of state and corporate power in the NSA, military and elsewhere. What do you call it?
