Sanctions, Sanctions, All Fall Down

Today is Sunday, 15 October 2006.

Given: that nuclear weapons are a Hitler-style weapon of mass destruction.

I say this because nuclear weapons are essentially flying extermination camps, Auschwitz on wings.

Should we expect “sanctions” to force the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to relinquish them?

Given: that the USA/USE, Russia, China, United Kingdom, France, Israel, India, and Pakistan have refused to renounce their Hitler-style weapons of mass destruction …

What do you think?

A very interesting and perceptive analogy "Auschwitz on wings," and a continuation of the pragmatic genius for labor saving efficiencies on large scales that America has demonstrated. Perhaps this arises from a societal preference for more antiseptic mass exterminations. At least the Germans were compelled to look their victims in the eyes.

A plague on policy makers whose characters were so deficient that they could not withstand the imperatives of a Curtis LeMay. These excesses stand shoulder to shoulder in infamy with any historical competitors:

Dresden
Tokyo
Hiroshima
Nagasaki

How many innocent victims of these horrors may be counted in comparison to the victims of the more labor intensive German efforts of WW II?

How many innocent victims of our Iraq folly compared to the excesses of the prior regime?

How much penance will permit these stains to fade?

But then again, let us not forget that the American myth requires a belief forged in the fires of denial, that we are the "good guys" and as such, are incapable of committing horrors of genocide and/or mass murder in the name of selfish gain.

Walking down Park Avenue
With nothing else to do.
Spending every dime
on a wonderful time...

If you're blue
And you don't know
Where to go to
Why don't you go
Where fashion sits...
Puttin' on the Ritz.

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper...
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
...Super Duper

Props to Fred A. and Gene K.
