#1 A state does not make a people; rather, a people make a state

#2 Pakistan is the most dangerous nation in the world today. At the rate it is devolving it is only a matter of time before its nukes - which do work - are either put to use against someone (who? Who knows!) Or lost to a non-state organization that will use them. Depending on the targets chosen (and the weather) we could easily see the first true nuclear war.

#3 Sometimes I think that the best thing that can happen to Wakiland is that it devolve back to the days of complete tribal/war-lordism where all the tribes are of equal strength and the nukes have been hauled away by the adults.

Somewhere between Darwin's theory of Natural Selection and Big Fish Eats Little Fish,
[Pieter Bruegel the Eldar 1556], the truth must surely be found. I'm with you AlanC; devolution should be unhindered, monitored at a safe distance, and accurately recorded for posterity.
