  •  Isreal is using it's weapons- as an ongoing threat (0+ / 0-)

    anytime, any place a country invests in weapons it is based on the power projection calculus: spend X to create threat of Y for country Z if it does A, B or does not do C.

    The threat of usage exists whether or not Armageddon actually unfolds. The costs to the adversary are concrete and real.

    What people don't yet realize is  that- from now moving into the future- we the little guys have the power to disrupt and sabotage  offensive and unacceptable policies and create chaos.

    This is the motivator behind most of the recently heavily funded policies.

    Monitoring and squelching emergent challenges from the little guy- irregardless of the legitimacy of the challenge (e.g., occupy, unions, water, healthcare, jobs, racism, human rights, injustice, rejection of hypocrisy, attempting to counter implosion of democracy, desperation, malformed world view resulting from propaganda, etc)

    We erect our own demise

    We will be destroyed by hubris, self-delusion and the urge to suppress dissent through threat of violence
