The War Queue

Here is an eye opening essay by Juan Cole,  publisher of Informed Comment.
It addresses the likelihood that our military/industrial complex has been, for years, demonizing  the leaders of countries which have oil reserves, and in so doing have created what amounts to a War Queue,  according to Cole.

The hawks in Congress, controlled by their military/industrial patrons, have wanted to keep war going, somewhere, all the time.

Call me a conspiracy nut if you like.  I think of myself as someone who is always leery of hidden agendas.

Gone But Not Forgotten, I Hope

It's been months since I last posted; just couldn't get up for it for a while.  But here's an essay which I hope many will read.  If I sent a link to it via email it might be seen as spam by some.

One of the best reasons for a blog is that it provides a way to offer thoughts to others which they can access by choice as opposed to entering their world without their permission or invitation, which is what email does.

Lewis Lapham writes about death with humor, but still with a seriousness of purpose. A rare treat.
