Thursday Highlights

Good morning

  1. 25 years ago.
  2. More damage … to be honest I plan to but have not yet listened to this … I’m thinking this might be grist for our ongoing drone discussion.
  3. A big black wall.
  4. Some more context for that.
  5. Looking forward to another world war, perhaps?
  6. Lakes and photography.
  7. Seriously though, I think a more important factor would be the man’s wife and children.
  8. Yikes.
  9. Single payer.
  10. You may josh at this ad campaign, but we bought one.
  11. The end is (not so very) nigh.
  12. Art and the infant.
  13. Our system of government described. I said I wouldn’t link any election related material for the remainder of the week. I don’t think that counts, do you?

    I would argue that drones have less collateral and even enemy damage. The alternative would have been a full scale infantry invasion and occupation of eastern Afghanistan and northern Pakistan. I think that would entail both a huge amount of collateral damage and casualities as well as many more enemy deaths. Rather than slaughtering thousands of low level recruits, many of whom are weakly committed to fighting us, destroying the leadership from the top down saves lives even among those who are technically the enemy.
