History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives.”   —   Abba Eban

(Well . . . you don’t expect the other guy to just give you his oil, gas and mineral rights!  Do you???  It’s much easier to just go in on some trumped up pretext, guns blazing, and take what you want.  Then you can extend your military industrial complex profits, with a prolonged occupation.  That will disenfranchise and alienate more young men, to join more and more “terrorist” organizations, and you can perpetuate the militaristic cycle of profit for the few, at the expense of the many.  Maybe, they’ll behave more wisely after they have exhausted all the resources?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(And super powers behave petulantly . . . because they can.  Hey!  This is our first Abba Eban quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  And, it’s a good one, too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
