The age-old armageddon ‘foreign policy’ is based in part on the absurd notion that the ‘enemy states,’ most of which are oil-rich, are inhabited by ant-like creatures who do not deserve to live in the modern world.

Well, they are living in the ‘modern world,’ and in most cases, the cities they live in are more modern than the metropolitan cities of the former ‘superpower.’

The question now is not whether the superpower can control billions of people, but why on earth would they feel they have the right to do so?

As you will see even from this small sampling, despite the absurd, playground boasting, that is never going to happen.

Maybe it is time to wake up and grow up.
