No More Lies

No More Lies: We can kill anyone we care to, anywhere they are, and we can get away with it.

The lesson the world witnessed recently when Osama bin Laden was shot to death in his home in the heartland of Pakistan's military dictatorship is that if we care to, then we can kill anyone at all, any time we wish, for no reasons or many, and we can do so with impunity. There is nothing the world can do to stop us from killing anyone we want to kill. We can kill tribal cheiftains, we can kill presidents of Third World hell-holes, we can kill entire nations if it suits us, and no one can stop us. We don't kill our enemies very often because it doesn't suit us. Except when it does. And when it does, that's what we do. Even a piece of shit like Obama gets it. Now, so does the Third World. So do the Germans and the French. The U.N. gets it. It could be that, as unlikely as it seems, the Left gets it. The mask we've worn since the 50s has slipped, and the world can see the face of the most powerful nation in history, and it is still smiling. But it needn't smile. The Lilliputians might just tremble. Obama will go, and he might easily be replaced by a man.

The world is at our mercy.
