Gun Fu vs Kung Fu, Martial Arts v Martial Law

And why Kung Fu or any other martial art comes out ahead.
If you pick any one thing that’s external to you, something that’s not built into your body and mind as your means of self defense, you set up a cycle of dependence. With knives, staves, swords, and such it’s the same story, only not as quick. With those you have to be trained to get enough proficiency to kill somebody. And the training actually makes you more proficient at fighting without reliance on the object.
The Gun gives you a feeling of helplessness under a veneer of a power rush, you start to consider how it gives you one simple power, to kill. Not to defend, to kill. You begin to think of it as your only means of resolving great conflicts, then, quickly, as you descend into the mental Hell of slavery to an object, as your only means of resolving ANY conflicts. The Gun does your thinking for you, only, it’s stupid. Literally without intellect.
And why did you buy the Gun in the first place? Because you felt so afraid and inferior. “Self Defense” is the number one claim for “Why do you keep or carry a gun?”
And, admit it, at least to yourself, YOU asked yourself that question. If you NEED Mr. Gun to defend yourself, what then will you do if you don’t have Mr. Gun handy and something goes down?
Most intentional homicides aren’t done in self defense. The vast majority of unintended homicides are pure accidents, accidents happen all the time.
I moved my bed last night and dropped the frame onto my foot. People die in swimming accidents, in fact Gun Fanatics like to point that out. A LOT.
I’ll go out on a stacistical limb here and suggest that probably most of the people who drowned last year weren’t actually carrying a swimming pool around in their pockets nor were they basing their entire self defense or conflict resolution plans on being able to pull a swiming pool on somebody.
Putting a gun in your hands, your car or your pocket (let’s get the word-play out of the way here, a holster IS a pocket specially designed to hold only one thing)
Being so afraid that you believe a gun is the only thing that can save your life, makes it more likely that you’ll believe your life is in constant danger and more likely to try to stave off that danger through the use of The Gun. Likewise depending on Armies, a million or so guns, not even in YOUR hands, to “defend” you or more accurately, to force people in other countries to negotiate business deals on YOUR terms and against the best interests of Their People. Think not? Consider this:

In Red China everybody is a de-facto member of the military either of the regular army or the militia. The admittedly Right Wing American estimate is that China has the ability to field two hundred million people within a day. Same in North Korea but with a lower number. Same in Iraq before the invasion.

Beijing is scared white of their own people, but not the ones who carry arms everywhere everyday. They’re scared of a Martial Arts religion, the current one being Falun Gong. A “Confucian” cult, Confucius being the European name of (I’ll draw the simplest line here) Kung Fu Tse.
Other Kung Fu religious groups include The Fists of Harmonious Righteousness, aka The Boxers. Who almost took down not only the (fire)armed Imperial troops but also the Germans, French, Portuguese, English and Americans whose armies had “Negotiated” a permanent presence in China, much like our “permanent” presence in the Arabian Peninsula, Indian Subcontinent and Persian Gulf.

Simple Score Card For People With ADHD: Euro-American and Imperial troops = Armed with guns.
Boxers = Not Armed With Guns.

The Boxers lost that round. Not forever though.
The John Birch Society says and might be entirely accurate on this one point, the Communist government coopted a people’s revolution.

But the people are there, and now have that government scared of people who do exercises in the parks.

The Heavily Armed government.

So the State Department is once more Dictating to Egypt

Hosni Mubarak must stay – US envoy
Frank Wisner: ‘This is an ideal moment for Mubarak to show the way forward’
Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak “must stay in office” during a power transition, a US special envoy says.
Frank Wisner was speaking as protesters kept up their demands for Mr Mubarak to step down immediately.
In other words, for Democracy to succeed in Egypt the people of Egypt have to accede to the will of the foremost enemy of democracy in the modern world. “Do as we tell you, so you can enjoy all the freedom we GIVE you… Just hold out your neck for the collar…”
Because it’s in the U.S. Imperial errr “National” interest of the people of Iran that there be a U.S. controlled errr “backed” Satrapy err Democratic Regime errr… strong centralized government in WashingtonEgypt, but run from Washingto Cairo for when we liberate Iran through the use of nuclear devastation.

Who decided Ghurkas make good peacekeepers?

So the Haitian cholera outbreak is being investigated by the U.N. and the suspect so far is a Nepalese “peacekeeping” base with sewage issues, in a blunt and literal sense.
This is the device they’re most famous for perfecting and using.
It’s a machete, really, with the bent-forward blade, which can cut through bamboo, Mother Nature’s own Structural Tubing. Modify the use without modifying the tool and you have an efficient slash knife that can take off a human head with one slash. No mean feat there.

They’ve a reputation for fierceness in battle. Very warlike when they feel the need and really PEACE anything doesn’t leap to mind when thinking about these dudes. But, they’re part of the U.N. mission.
Which is only a side issue, the U.N. itself is supposedly in charge of facility maintenance and that would include the plumbing. So the shit gets dumped, really, back into the U.N.s front parlor. They own the shit.

Meanwhile, back at Southeast Asia, there was yet another volcanic eruption and tsunami. There’s of course no funds for fixing the massive human needs there simply because A Certain Unnameable Society is simultaneously plundering and destroying the resources of the entire world including any funding for humanitarian needs.

Too busy meeting the InHumanitarian Needs, I suppose. Oh, and the Koalition of the Killing forces employ Ghurkas to do that too.
