  • When will they ever learn?

    My often displayed criticism of the occupation of Iraq left aside, I feel so sorry for those guys killed and hurt today in their mess tents in Mossul, and for their families.

    An old Marlene Dietrich song that questions the logic in wars comes to mind:

    Where Have all the Flowers gone?

    Too right. It's nothing but tragedy. Just before Christmas.

    A Dead Statesman
    By Rudyard Kipling

    I could not dig: I dared not rob:
    Therefore I lied to please the mob.
    Now all my lies are proved untrue
    And I must face the men I slew.
    What tale shall serve me here among
    Mine angry and defrauded young?"
    Bush, Blair, Bin Laden, Saddam - it's coming to them all...

      Bush = Time's Man of the Year!

      WTF?
      I guess if you're going by the criterion...
      "a guy who can stir up some shit!"

      In that case, give him Man of the Century
