A quick question.

I've been out of the loop since yesterday lunchtime. So I'm more than a little surprised to see that the Bahraini government has invited troops from Saudi and the UAE in. I'm not at all surprised to see that the Bahraini government has declared a three month state of emergency, that it is all kicking off in the capital again and that Sky News is reporting that a Saudi troop has been shot dead by protestors.

My question is this; What sort of despicable monster invites troops in to their country to use force against their own citizens?

More to the point, what sort of despicable monster answers the call and actually sends their troops for this purpose?

Bugger the global economy, the sooner these revolting, backwards, mediaeval despots run out of oil and have no money to put their populations down, the better. Forget the ecological concerns, we need to get a viable alternative to oil bloody quick so we can stop doing business with these hateful people.

I work in Africa. I have done for nearly thirty years. If one fact has emerged that is absolutely indisputable it is that dictators could not give a flying fuck about "the people".

This is a terrifying fact. And yet it is mirrored in EVERY country throughout this planet we inhabit.

They are allowed to thrive, and kill us, and maim us, and subjugate us, and rob us, for one reason, and one reason only: because we allow it.

The bigger, better question is; Why?

Why do we permit them to treat us so?

Answer that, and you will solve humanities problems instantly.

Find the solution and I will be right there alongside you, implementing it.

I'll be there in a heartbeat.
