    population = assets.

    I don't think it's so much about human lives over there vs human lives over here. I think it's more a 'human being' vs 'human resource' concept, kinda like 'death' vs 'casualty'.

    Is it Nevada Bob who said "don't EVER let them call you America's most prescious national resource! Have you SEEN what they do to prescious national resources?!? Have you seen a clear cut? Have you seen a strip mine?" Great rant, that one.

    What I'm getting at is: don't make the mistake of thinking they care more about lives here than there. The same logic had D.C. willing to start a nuclear war with the USSR, as long as the US was relatively more powerful after the billions died. Dr Strangelove was satire, not fiction, eh?
