Five Myths About Drone Warfare

2021 09 17 08 14

Myth 1. It's "precision bombing" Myth 2. Drone warfare is ethical Myth 3. If the war is legal so is the weapon Myth 4. Drones are a triumph of technology Myth 5. Drones are effective Aerial bombardment has not created peaceful states, nor defeated IS, nor stopped the violent deaths of innocents, nor abated sectarian conflicts, nor alleviated suffering. These wars have led to endemic anarchy, mass exodus of civilians, death, poverty and generations living with the trauma of war. They have contributed to the rise of theocracy and jihadism. Wars rage, as millions are...

Peter Zeihan On Why China Won’t Be Exploiting Afghanistan’s Mineral Wealth

"Speculation over Afghanistan's potential mineral wealth is just that--speculation. What we do know about the hard reality of the country's geography, infrastructure and development profile readily explains why we're still talking about Afghan mineral wealth in the realm of potential trillions--it might certainly be there, but no one's done the hard, serious work to find out for sure.  And China is certainly not going to be the one to do it. Chinese involvement in Afghanistan isn't going to be fueled by a desire to do serious survey and exploration work, building out roads and rail lines,...

Stephen Wertheim: Delusions Of Dominance, Biden Can’t Restore American Primacy And Shouldn’t Try

2021 01 25 07 55

By seeking global dominance rather than just its own defense, the United States has acquired a world of antagonists. These antagonists have in turn further increased the costs and dangers of dominance. As a result, U.S. foreign policy has failed in its most essential purpose: it has made the American people less safe where they live. Stephen Wertheim has a vision for a more restrained U.S. foreign policy. One that would be supported by the majority of Americans, but is it a vision shared by the Biden...

Dems Giving Each Other Very Bad Advice

I mean I know they're mostly rationalizing the fact that Biden just can't keep up a busy schedule and as they admit they're afraid he's going to trip up and say something crazy or forget what he's saying, so they're spinning like crazy in this Politico story. But do they believe their own bs?: "The Democratic nominee is sticking to his strategy: Keep a low profile, and let Trump light himself on fire. “'This is a referendum on Trump, and we’re not playing his game. You shouldn’t, either,' the Biden adviser instructed. 'Real people don’t care about Biden’s travel. Fox [News] does. This is...
