In games without frontiers-war without tears

Heh:
If the American analysis of the relationship between power and luxury goods is correct, surely the answer is to flood the Korean market with luxury goods. Carpet-bomb centres of population with aid-drops of Rolexes and iPods and (suitably packed) bottles of Bordeaux. Then power will lie with goods that only the people can provide -- like tomatoes, and bread.

The ZeFrank video referred to at The Economist Blog is here. (Coincidentally, it starts with ZeFrank in front of the Burj with no reason given.)

Peter Gabriel gets the last word:
Andre has a red flag, Chiang Ching's is blue
They all have hills to fly them on except for Lin Tai Yu
Dressing up in costumes, playing silly games
Hiding out in tree-tops shouting out rude names
-Whistling tunes we hide in the dunes by the seaside
-Whistling tunes we piss on the goons in the jungle
It's a knockout
If looks could kill they probably will
In games without frontiers-wars without tears
If looks could kill they probably will
In games without frontiers-war without tears
Games without frontiers-war without tears

Not sure that is our beloved Ze in front of the Burj Dubai. He has started every show for quite some time with tapes sent to him by viewers giving the usual "Sports Racers" greeting and that one just happened to be from UAE.

Nice post which arpet-bomb centres of population with aid-drops of Rolexes and iPods and bottles of Bordeaux. Then power will lie with goods that only the people can provide like tomatoes, and bread. Thanks a lot for posting this article.
