Iraq: a resounding success

I can’t find a link for it yet, but todays news on the radio is a very healthy profit at BAe, which is by far Britain’s biggest armaments company.  A successful bottom line to the long series of wars we’ve started since the end of the Cold War, avoiding the risk of such a vital part of the economy going into meltdown.

Todays other news is of course the first stage of cut-and-run.  That’s inevitable: so long as there’s a native population and an occupying force, there will be resistance.  Historically, a Final Solution to that problem hasn’t worked for a very long time.
