Measure

Oh dear. Unfortunate choice of words. Kofi Annan in a Reuters report few hours ago;

"In these kind of situations you have two wars going on," he told reporters on Tuesday. "You have the war for minds and hearts of the people as well as efforts to try and bring down the violence.

"The two have to go together and it has to be calibrated in such a way ..."

Aie aie aie. Hearts and minds, the spoils of war. Calibrated, as if to prime a firearm.

It didn't sound good coming out of the Whitehouse and it doesn't sound good coming out of the UN either. My mind and my heart, are not trophies.
