    “War is the health of the state” I read somewhere; the implication being state prosperity as well as human cooperation (within state) improves – an artificial community of interest (war/violence) supplanting perhaps a genuine community of interest (human development/responsible and respectable societal order).

    By the way, we lost 31 U.S. soliders 8-6-11 in Afghanistan (Afghan allies lost 8).

    Correction, 30 U.S. soliders killed in Afghanistan 8-6-11.
