So many authors went to great length describing the life of insects (ants, bees, beavers…) and how they built perfect residences and how they sacrificed (from mankind notion) for the sake of continuation of their breed.  Invariably, these authors end up glorifying mankind and his “unique fluid of energy: Capacity for thinking!”

What is sacrificing once life for the survival of the community?  You think that there are pre-conditions to classifying a murder by “sacrifice”; first, the person must be fully conscious of his decision and with sane brain and reflecting power; and second, the person must have reached the decision voluntarily without undue pressures from his community, family, or his buddies.

Now, how could these authors and researchers communicate with insects to figure out that sacrifice was the purpose instead of brute massacres for some kind of survival?  How could these researchers figure out that there are no trained architects among the insects?  Just stating “instinct” of survival or gene structure does not cut it:  “Black boxes” in sciences are proof of total ignorance on the subject matters.

Governments would like you to believe that the millions of soldiers who died in senseless battles were sacrificing their blood and life for the other “citizens”.  Soldiers who were horded by force under law gimmicks were not martyrs.  Soldiers who volunteered under community pressures in order to saving the “honor and dignity” of the community are indeed “sacrificial” lambs.  Do you know of any voluntary soldier who was convinced that he will die?  Most probably, it is his co-arm companions who will die:  Statistics stupid!  When the turn of the volunteered soldier’s shit is to hit the ceiling in a battle then, it is too late to backtrack; he is pressed by his co-arm companions and captains to advance .  Otherwise, this volunteered conscript is to face a firing squad with all kinds of unjustified character deficiencies heaped upon him.

The high command is not that interested in the number of death: it is concerned with the number of injured soldiers.  High command needs to investigate how many soldiers committed self-inflicted injuries to avoiding front lines engagements.  Statistics of rate of injuries recommend serious investigations when higher than “normal”.

Thinking should be a constant exercise; most important before deciding on preemptive wars.  Unfortunately, thinking is not on the table; just maps, PowerPoint graphs, and the rate of return of multinationals for the razzias.

I was never been paid to communicate with insects; they are so tiny and thus, when they invade my comfort zone then I kill them.  All that I ask of insects is not to show up where they shouldn’t.  (That is exactly what superpowers do to redundant States.)  I blame those soft-hearted and cowered people who demand to save the blood sucking mosquitoes on the ground that they must have been created for the benefit of mankind; a benefit not yet discovered.  Consequently, we have to sacrifice our blood and comfort for the survival of mosquitos.

I am a mental for killing mosquitoes; I wet a short towel and then, fine tune and adjust my snapping maneuvers to guaranteeing a kill.  Yes, I get up from my couch just to go after tranquil mosquitoes.  I would love to be remembered in Guinness Books as the meanest mosquitos hand terminator.

Valleys can be scary places; the richer the valley the scarier: everyone wants a piece of it.  There is this valley called Fergana shared by the States of Kirghistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kazakhstan.  There are two rivers, Kar Daria and Naryn, taking sources in Kyrgyzstan (the State that witnessed political and social turmoil lately and where over 80,000 took refuge in Uzbekistan and then returned:  They surely have seen conditions of refugees on cables and knew better to return home quickly and not linger a day more.)  Yes, many people of Uzbekistan origin were massacred in the two cities of Jalalabad and Och.  The two rivers join in Fergana Valley and generate the famous Syr-Daria River that flow in Kazakhstan and ends in the Aral Sea.

Cotton is the main produce in that rich valley. Go figure, as if they can eat cotton at a time when every drop of “unsalt” water counts.  I distinguish between unsalted water a potable water;  there are no potable water anymore: Dogs are dying drinking water. As if the people in that region care for cotton when wearing bear coat is considered light dress.  States with lands by major rivers (or not that major) want to grow cotton; they don’t mind be the new slaves, hand picking cotton as during the US Confederate States period while cotton growers in the US are subsidized by the government in this so-called Global Fair Trade Agreement or Act.

There are three dams on the Naryn, two of them are under construction and the neighboring States are worried about “water politics ” when the US, Russia, and China decide to fight it out in Central Asia.  Russia decided not to intervene militarily in Kyrgyzstan because it was suspicious that soldiers from the neighboring States might decide not to vacate the areas by the two river sources on ground of “sovereign interests.”  Actually, there were many mercenaries from Uzbekistan infiltrating in Kyrgyzstan before the latest flap.  Any destabilization in these sensitive regions will confront the three superpowers.  The US and Russia have already military bases in Kyrgyzstan; the Ouigour region in China (that witnessed heavy social turmoil last year) is bordering Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.  The two major routes for the opium grown in Afghanistan cross Kyrgyzstan; another strategic product that neighboring States want to get its monopoly.

Geography is as basic in geopolitics and humanities departments as math is to sciences. Egypt grows cotton and many African States bordering the Niger River.  Gamal Abdel Nasser was forced to side with the Soviet Union because it financed the Aswan Dam.  The US government was ready to finance this dam but cotton grower’s lobbyists pressured the government to desist.  If these cotton growers knew that the US government would subsidize intensive agro-businesses then, they would have let the US finance all kinds of dams anywhere on earth: they would sit tight and receive subsidies.

Slavery is still strong and expanding.  There are millions of slaves in so-called independent States growing cotton and hand picking cotton.  There is this cloud and it may rain anywhere it wishes; the wealth is reverted to the vaults of the superpower nations; a small portion of that wealth is redistributed as loans and grants to keeping slaves surviving and producing.
