“Kill one of us…

…and we’ll kill a hundred of you”. That's really what this recent conflict has been about. People witter about objectives, goals, stages, but in truth it boils down to the opening statement. That the Israelis will now ‘cease their fire’ is only because they feel they’ve killed enough to make their point. The underlying strategic and tactical objectives, despite what the pundits, politicos, etc might say, is simply this “Kill us, we’ll kill at a ratio of 100:1; if you’re happy with that, so are we”

After watching the Qatar conference on Al Jazeera…

…it’s so obvious what the fellows have to do. It’s been moot before, but the only weapon the collected possess is the ability to change the listing of oil from Dollars to Euros. This is the only weapon that is capable of being deployed, and they should not draw back from its use because of a regime change in the US.

Happy Birthday Cuba!!!!

Seems rude not to acknowledge the day that Cuba celebrates 50 years since its revolution. Not bad going to hold out against the most powerful nation in the last century. Let's hope this 50th year sees the standard of life improve.
