Come you masters of war

Ah, a learned man, to paraphrase the “Thucydides trap” in postmodernist terms:

‘What makes modern war inevitable is the commercial interest in war’

The military industrial complex is what has caused the conflagration that is the “Arab Spring”‘, a trap well sprung indeed.

What would peace profit the masters of war!

 

which is of course why bob should’ve won the peace prize and not the literature prize, except of course that no one took him literally
