I've finally added
Angie Schultz's fine blog
The Machinery of Night to the link's list. Angie is one of the
few enlightened folks who appreciates light-on-black text.
A real reason to worry
few details of Saddam's secret weapons program. The implications are

Reader Dave S. writes
in with some humorous observations on a certain recent news item....
So I'm watching
CNN, and the anchor and the ex-military guy are discussing the fragging
incident. And they're shaking their heads and saying how they just can't
understand it, and how bizarre and inexplicable it is, and what could
possibly have motivated this man to kill his fellow soldiers?
Gee, I dunno. What
could possibly have motivated Sgt. ASAN AKBAR to kill American soldiers
in Iraq? It's a poser, ain't it?
There's an elephant
in the living room and nobody wants to talk about it.
The only thing inexplicable
to me is that everybody said the guy was a "loner" and was
acting "weird" and "funny" and was pissed that he
wasn't going on the line because they apparently thought he had some
... so they PUT
HIM IN CHARGE OF THE FUCKING GRENADES.
For future reference
for anyone who's not clear on the concept, here are some pairings you
want to avoid:
Frat boy --- drunk
Drunk girl --- nailgun.
Baby --- antifreeze in a sippy cup.
Disgruntled Muslim --- grenades.

What's this shit?
Proving that the Indymedia
crowd don't have a monopoly on insanity, the formerly sane Silent
Running scribe Murray gives us these
carpet bomb the whole miserable fucking country now. The Iraqis have
shown by their actions that they are just as evil as their leader and
they are guilty either by action or inaction of maintaining the regime.
They are all guilty. They have no claim on our pity on our help on our
blood or our mercy.
Yeah baby, kill em
all and let God sort 'em out! Hey, it worked for William
They are all guilty?
The families of murdered dissidents? The brutalised/terrified citizenry?
All those sinful children? The women Uday has grabbed off the street,
tortured and raped? The Marsh Arabs? The people who greeted coalition
soldiers with hugs and kisses? This taxi driver in this
story? The citizens of Halabja? Maybe there are some sinful toddlers
in Baghdad who are in on it too.
Hey they all look
Murray, what the fuck
is the matter with you? By associating an entire population with
the deeds of a vicious, murdering tyrant, you're saying the entire
country should share his fate: you're advocating genocide, you
dig? Dr. Joseph Goebbels couldn't have done better.
John Pilger may not
give a shit about Iraqis but at least he's never called for their extermination.
Christ almighty. Go get some therapy, now.
I'd show all the text
and fisk it, but I just ate. I'm still wondering why these
folks and these folks
are providing a forum for this nauseating assload.
