    DEAD-END MISSIONIZING in the Networked Battlespace that the Global MIC has nearly completely turned the whole effing world into?

    One stupid War of Choice after another, "our" huge Juggernaut being clumsy and in-agile enough to never be able to prevail in an asymmetric enterprise. Since if you look at the details, war is just a huge enterprise, turning Real Wealth into shrapnel and new rounds of hatred. And of course since "we" killed 26 Pakistani soldiers "somehow, in the fog of war," it's now more like $3,000 rather than the previous $400 to get a gallon of petrofuel to the active face of the Battlespace, not counting bribes to all the warlords in the little fiefdoms between the LZs and where The Troops are Making Huge Strides in some place that a brass hat has decided to nominate as the latest Khe Sanh, the latest Pork Chop Hill, the place where The War Will Finally Be Won, unless it isn't.

    The thing about the military is that it is this enormous, parasitic bureaucracy/vampire squid, riding on a huge wave of myths and unexamined truthinesses, building its own momentum as it rolls downhill, shedding murderous technologies left, right and center. I hope all the True Believers, the idiot "patriots" that foster this effing nonsense that enables the Great Gamers to keep sucking our blood to feed themselves and their "commands," are still alive when the little creeping and flittering 'bots, carrying the latest toxins or genetically engineered pathogens, crawl through the cracks in their Home Castles and finish them off. And shit like this:

    Can you dig it? Get it on! lap up the bloodthirst in the comments to that video, get a fine sense of what kind of death wish our stupid effing country and species seems to have....
