Armed and dangerous

While the US military behemoth is by far the world’s largest, looked at a different way, a per capita military spending infographic reveals that it is far exceeded by israel. This also aligns with the observation that the zionist entity is a military attached to a state rather than a state with a military. I’ll wager the Saudi Arabian arms purchases are largely from the US and serve to recycle the petrodollars from US consumption.  From Princeton’s International Networks Archive (click here for full enlarged graphic).

    I wish they’d break these down into “defense” and “aggression” subtotals.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
