    Yes, that is exactly how it feels here.
    I have avoided references to pop culture that might lose some readers, but yours is apt. Also some elements of the Cyclon occupation of New Caprica, etc.

    It's weird to see the role of armed corporations.

    Also, look at the work of Milton Friedman's son David Friedman. He's an "anarchist" and Iraq is fortunately or not an example of anarchy in practice in places.

      to anarchists to call Friedman an "anarchist" or Iraq "anarchism in practice."

      If warlordism is anarchism then fascism is democracy, ignorance is strength, slavery is freedom, ....

      No returns for privilege; full returns for labor! Labor has a right to all that it creates.

      Small armies, assassinations, murders -- including murders involving CIA personnel -- nothing new.

      New Zealand kicked the CIA out 100% over this kinda crap.

      And people wonder why the Washington Democrats are shy about challenging these a-holes.

      BTW: not to mention recurring difficulties, domestically, with light planes....

      Dixie Chicks and Amy Winehouse. Imus and Lenny Bruce. Overcome evil with good.
