While half-awake I saw the light and the solution to all of our problems came to me. We need to change our policy. Whenever, wherever there is a conflict anywhere on earth we need to arm both sides with the most powerful offensive weapons possible so that we can be assured that they will eliminate each other … wipe both sides off the face of the earth.
Just consider the advantages for the rest of us. It would ultimately create a world with less violence. There would be less competition for our declining natural resources. There would be less consumption due to a smaller population, less green-house gases, and thus less global climate change. We would even have an immediate increase in employment as we produce replacement weapons for the next set of combatants.
Obviously I am not serious … but you have to admit it has merit. The House might even be able to pass such a bill. 🙂
