Clicking on commenter links, I find Free Thoughts Of An Aging Man by Post Punk Unkle:
I came across the following quotation from Ian M Banks today;Some good stuff on ID cards and those cartoons. Welcome to the blogroll Unkle.
“…if in a sizable population there are one hundred rebels, all of whom are then rounded up and killed, the number of rebels present at the end of the day is not zero, and not even one hundred, but two hundred or three hundred or more; an equation based on human nature which seems often to baffle the military and political mind.”
If only Blair /Bush understood this before their ill-conceived invasion of Iraq.
