Great Gig In The Sky

On the anniversary of this

Obama vows a systematic campaign of airstrikes in a country 6700 miles away.

And the words of Einstein echo out in the autumnal air.

I do not know what the 3rd World War will be fought with. But the 4th World War will be fought with sticks and stones.

Then perhaps we'll go back to being animals, and wander through the charred remains of the lands we chose to decimate. But animals have been taking each other out since time immemorial too. We all watched the Lion King. Conflict is as intrinsic to nature as it is to human history. We just have bigger brains and better weapons. 

And yet we're the only animals to systematically kill our own species.
