Did you know? I didn’t. We seem to now be at the point in our endless wars of Empire where our Ruling Classes don’t even bother to ask or keep us informed as they send our sons and daughters to die for their latest Grand Vision of a Utopian End to Evil.
Our latest war turns out to be about sending our exhausted men and women to suffer and die, yet again, so as to protect our soil from the vast threat of Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army, which is currently running around being crazy and evil in the trackless wilderness of Africa. Sad? Yes. Sad enough that I want another drop of our troop ino harm’s way yet again? No.
