These are the reckless tactics of war -- every kind of war. Revering and protecting our water supply, not merely "controlling" it, is a far better use of our blood, sweat and tears.

I know that a petition went around, which I signed, asking the UN to investigate the situation in Detroit. And Gaza has issues with water after Israeli bombings have left more blood than water.

"“Water supply key to outcome of conflicts in Iraq and Syria [and Gaza], experts warn.”

The world has made water a commodity rather than a natural resource to be shared. Just think about it . . . Nestle and others, take free water, bottle it, and then sell it back to us.

I am with the author when he says "I thirst for a different sort of world, one in which water is not just another commodity, something to be controlled, to one’s own advantage and another’s detriment."

Austerity and Keynesian economics are unqualified failures. They have wrecked this country, they have poisoned capitalism. They are leading us straight towards a meltdown that only the direst and most draconian measures can prevent. We can vote as much as we like, throw as many bums and crooks out of our gub-mint as we like, but I fear that the poo is still going to hit the fan. Big time.
