    The empire will strike back

    Radically eclectic thoughts (in spanish) mentions today the threat of a Russian general to attack preventively wherever they deem necessary. Nice bluff, but, unless they are willing to use nuclear weapons, where they still have some standing, I guess Russia has the strategic capability, not to mention resources, of, say, Sweden or Brazil.
    It's not to be disregarded, of course; the problem is that, once you break the game once, throwing preventive attacks on a country, anybody can do it. So I guess that unless we want any country that can fill a couple of transport planes with grunts launching preventive attacks all over the world, it would be a good idea for the US to assume responsabilities and say "OK, we did this, but it was a bad thing".

    Yep. Once the US ripped the deck, all the rules that minimally contained the dirty play between nations are gone.

    By the way, preemptive strikes are not cutting edge issues. Actually, those rules were there to avoid and condemn episodes like the Austro-Serbian war (beginning of WWI), or the Czech and Poland invasions by the Germans (beginning of WWII).

    And I guess neither the US, or the world, want the marines to take the place of the blue helmet, so I expect some change is in order.

    Why not "Los Nikis"?

    'cause "Imperial March" reminds me "Walküren Ritt" (Walkyries's Ride) in context and meaning...

    Hojotoho! Hojotoho! Heiha! Heiha!

    And I prefer Williams to 'Los Nikis'

    Do you write with Google's translator? I couldn't avoid to read your blog spelling like a Spanish guy. It's funny. Try it! lol

    An advice: don't write translating
