The Bravery of Being Out of Range

Remote satellite control live video game killing newsmedia-fuck-fest.

There are some people who only understand the "language of violence". Al Zaqarwi may or may not have been one one of those people. We actually know very little about him. George W. Bush, on the other hand, is definitely one of those people. Unlike many others, George has never actually been on a battlefield. Wars are dirty things by nature, but there is something honourable in face-to-face combat for those who haven't read Master Sun Tzu's "Art of War".

My proposal is that we that we section off an old nuclear test site, say for instance in the Nevada desert or one of those South Sea Islands that are unihabitable beyond all recognition, as a "ring for combat". Whenever George and one of his ''opponents" want to duel it out, with whatever comes to hand, we send them off there. Dropping two 500 pound bombs on a family home in a village in Iraq is not combat; it's just awful.

We could even make it a real reality TV show; Survivor for the 21st century and film the whole lot for posterity to show to future generations just how inane our conception of "war" has become.

Are you livin' for love?

That's a darn good idea, Jay!

Too bad, george wouldn't be caught dead on a battlefield (literally).
