54. Well we have given them the right to do that haven't we? I doubt many in the world are going to be

too sympathetic to us whining about it when it does happen, and it will sooner or later. But maybe that is part of it all. Forever war, forever profit for the orchestrators of all of it. Wars have mostly been about profit down through history, land, property, resources, money.

But we are not in the Middle Ages anymore. You would think we would have evolved to some extent, instead we have plummeted all the way back to the times of torture and brutality, death and destruction that no civilized society should still be involved in.
