Like a bird on a stick . . .

 . . . on a bird,
on a stick,
on a bird,
on a stick,
on a bird . . .

P.S. While I’m here, those who would like more words to read than I’m currently writing could do worse than clicking over to Norm’s place. In recent days he has posted amongs other things  a very good and short piece on Bush and torture, with a follow up, two pieces on China as seen from King’s Cross and as seen from China, and on doing something less than arguing over possible justifications for war.

That last one is in response to an odd piece of writing on the Washington Post’s Political Bookworm blog by a professor with a book to sell, one Richard Rubenstein of George Mason University’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution. One interesting fact the professor presents his readers with is that “we are a religious people who will not fight unless first convinced that war is morally justified. This is why virtually every American war has spawned a significant anti-war movement.” Well fancy, the anti-war movement is primarily religious, did you know that?

On China as seen from the sea, the Information Dissemination blog is often interesting. For example this post on China’s strategic weaknesses, and an earlier one on the costs of rogue regimes.

Back to drawing now!
