    US to create list of "unstable nations"

    Under the Bush regime, we have heard about the so called "war on terror", the "battle of good against evil" and those "state sponsors of terrorism". Now, the regime in Washington is to create an additional list of nations for people to hate, this will be called "the list of 25 unstable nations". For so called "compassionate, christian conservatives" they do hate a lot don't they:

    The National Intelligence Council, a State Department office that collates intelligence for strategic planning, will compose and revise the secret list every six months, the Financial Times reported Tuesday. Carlos Pascual, a former ambassador who now heads the newly formed agency, said the NIC would identify countries of "greatest instability and risk" to clarify priorities and allocate resources.
    So, the world can look forward, it seems, to more disasterous interventions, like in Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti etc.. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    It's called contingency planning which, had it been practiced in the previous twenty years or so might have helped prevent 9/11.

    To say "create an additional list of nations for people to hate is simply a puerile distortion.

    Not at all, we already know enough about the current regime in Washington to know that their hate mongering knows no bounds.

    Puerile? Funny, when it comes to U.S. contingency planning, which has included planning terrorist attacks to be secretly carried out by U.S. agents to drum up support for a war with Cuba, the U.S. is rather puerile.

    No, this document is rather similar to the reactionary Nuclear ("nucular" for the Bushies out there) Posture Review which issued a not so covert threat to 8 different nations, of which only one has the power inflict anywhere even near the same league as the kind of damage the U.S. could inflict on any nation on Earth.

    And contingency plans against nations could have prevented an attack perpetrated by independent, non-state actors? It does not follow.

    A better plan for preventing future terror is to stop aiding it in other countries (ie. aiding the likes of Saparmurat Niyazov or Teodoro Obiang).
