More proof things are getting seriously weird
If political power grows from the barrel of a gun, then every armed Iraqi has a stake in the transfer of authority that is supposed to take place there in 11 weeks.
“All political power grows out of the barrel of a gun” was a slogan used by the Black Panthers in the 60’s.
To which, incidentally, radical organizer Saul Alinsky responded, “it’s just idiocy for the Panthers to talk about all power growing from the barrel of a gun when the other side has all the guns.”
PS I’ve always believed “all the armies on earth can’t stop an idea whose time has come”, to paraphrase Victor Hugo.
