Quote of the day

In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies – Sir Winston Churchill

    That quote is always seen as to be referring to the deceptions used to mask the true intentions before any military operation (Maskirovka in Russian)

    More worrisome to me is how we as citizens in a supposed democracy allow our leaders to mislead us by inane distractions (again truth is hard to find, distorted or suppressed)

    Search on John Key in the News on what will you find?

    Did you see this: Key tells peace summit why the world should go to war against ISIS

    Its pure boilerplate, of course , but the issue is real and we need robust public debate on what we, as a people, should be doing help to ameliorate what is a humanitarian catastrophe for which there is no simple answer. (Hint: I do not believe that sending a token military force of “trainers” will do anything other than exacerbate an already intractable situation)

    Perhaps the question is just too hard which is why we fall for the distractions that tugging of ponytails provide

    Here is another bad situation deliberately being escalated while we eat popcorn in front of reality TV
