The Prince of Bethar
When did Air Superiority become Air Dominance and how? Does the new term mean dominance from the air or dominance of the air itself?
This summer's remake of "War Of The Worlds" shows us, as only the Director of "JAWS" can, what true dominance is really like and should be seen by everyone who supports a brutal occupation by foreign powers who have the technological advantage over their helpless victims.
In Mikhail Naimy's masterpiece, "The Book Of Mirdad"; a Holy Man is confronted by a powerful ruler intent on warring with his neighbor. Mirdad counsels him to fight. To fight all that separates him from his neighbor and all that puts them at odds in the first place. He advises him to throw his weapons and his wealth in the same heap so that his neighbor, following his example, might do the same
Can it be that simple?
Perhaps. It is certainly the opposite of what is being done in our name in 2005.
Once again, Stanley Kubrick; a Holy Man of a different time, showed us the inevitable destruction that follows a weighted object in the wrong hand. Homo Satiens finally found a tree tall enough and got to the Moon, but that first murder at the water hole still follows us no matter how we ignore the problems that have been with us since the Dawn of Man.
Who's imagining WAR?
