Visit to Ballahulish

Away for two days in Ballahulish. Weather atrocious with snow and hailstorms just about the whole time. But managed a visit to an amazing place, Glen Etive, a kind of lost, hidden valley about 15 miles long. A white knuckle ride along a single track road with 200 feet drops into the River Etive at some points. A magical place though. Got some good pics some of which below:

How The US Government and US Military Became Murder, Inc.

How The US Government and US Military Became Murder, Inc.
Andrew Cockburn has written a must-read book. The title is Kill Chain: The Rise Of The High-Tech Assassins. The title could just as well be: How the US Government and US Military Became Murder, Inc.
The US military no longer does war. It does assassinations, usually of the wrong people. The main victims of the US assassination policy are women, children, village elders, weddings, funerals, and occasionally US soldiers mistaken for Taliban by US surveillance operating with the visual acuity of the definition of legal blindness.
