Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

DIY failed states - the US way...

DS emailed me an article from Daily Kos. I was particularly struck by this bit:
We're sternly reminded we cannot pull US forces out or Iraq would become a failed state, in blissful, willful ignorance of the fact that Iraq is a failed state and, more to the point, it became one while occupied by US forces.
I'd like to add that not only did Iraq become a failed state whilst it was occupied by US forces, but much more significantly, it became a failed state because it was occupied by US forces.

Ahh, it's a rare and wonderful thing to run across someone who can correctly differentiate between correlation and causation in a particular circumstance...
