“Why is MRC taking Kenya back to colonial past?” by Nkwazi Mhango
Although there have been much brouhahas and rumpus from Mombasa Republic Council (MRC), agitating for cessation from Kenya, the truth is what MRC is trying to do is treason. For nobody can declare a republic within a republic and fall short of committing treason. Therefore, legally speaking, MRC needs to be told to its face that what it is trying to do is treason and it is heavily punishable unde
“We Don’t Need Another Hero” By Lisa Fritsch
Op-ed submission by Project 21 Our nation’s current political battle about same-sex marriage reminds me of the film “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” in which rivals fight it out in a cage to chants of “two men enter, one man leaves!” I also recall Tina Turner’s song from the film. She belts out: “We don’t need another hero. We don’t need to know the way home.” Conservatives might take Turner’s lyrics
Kelley on Parchin
Bob Kelley sends along a rather different view than my own more jaded take on the “landscaping” activities at Parchin. Bob believes the Iranians are not be sanitizing the area near the test chamber at Parchin, but rather laying the foundation for a new structure. “Time will tell,” Bob says — and I suppose he’s right about that. I am eager to see the next set of images from Parchin. Shooting at a
Return of the Hard Mobile Launcher
This is the Hard Mobile Launcher (HML) designed for the never-deployed Small ICBM, better known (somewhat offensively) as the “Midgetman.” Apparently, the US Air Force is considering bringing back mobile basing in its Analysis of Alternatives for a Minuteman Follow-on. This is nuts. They should just quit while they are behind. One of the curious features of the April 2010 Nuclear Posture Review
Watching Arab governments collapse is always a nice opportunity to check out military hardware — particularly missiles. Libya’s collapse resulted in some pretty nice shots of its remaining Scud-B missiles. Syria has yet to collapse and unleash images of wrecked Scuds and whatnot, but here is a tantalizing first hint. On Twitter, @lalithadithya said “FSA claims to have captured a Syrian army miss
West Bank Diaries
Day 1: May 3, 2012 We leave Tel Aviv, a sun-drenched city filled with beaches, high rises and casually-dressed Israelis, on the only road across the West Bank to Jerusalem. It's a slick highway surrounded on all sides by a "fence" -- in some places cement and in other places barbed wire, dotted with armed checkpoints. On the side of the road, Palestinian men walk through a narrow barbed wire path
The Revolutionaries Feeding the Obesity Crisis
Major food corporations face a quandary. They are under Wall Street's constant profit-growth pressure, but they can't substantially raise product prices because the food market is so cost sensitive. Therefore, to entice us to spend even more on eating, Big Food has lately been trying to extend the biological limits of consumption by challenging one of the most basic structures of American culture:
Why ‘Chicago-Style Politics’ is America’s New Normal
It took a while, but Republicans finally put two and two together. Chicago is known for political corruption. President Obama's home base is Chicago. So accusing him of "Chicago-style politics" is a surefire winner, right? Not really, as it turns out. Republicans have thrown the insult around a lot over the past few months, but it hasn't added up to much of an advantage. That's in part because O
Peter Beinart’s Brave, Quixotic Quest
In late March, at the third annual conference of J Street, the liberal pro-Israel lobbying group, Daniel Levy sat on a panel debating the viability of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Levy, a former Israeli government official now with a think tank in Washington, spoke for a few minutes on the possibilities of peace moving forward. He then made a reference he knew everyone
Titan’s Lakes and the Drive to Explore
What is it that makes us want the stars? Surely there are philosophical reasons that push us into the universe, and in his book Quest: The Essence of Humanity (2004), Charles Pasternak delves into ‘questing’ as a drive embedded in the species. But alongside a need to explore I can see two other drivers. One is the urge to know whether life exists elsewhere, and ultimately, whether there are other
Small Planets: No Need for High Metallicity?
In astronomy, the word ‘metals’ refers to anything heavier than hydrogen and helium. Stars fuse hydrogen into helium and from there work their way into the higher elements until hitting iron, at which point the end quickly comes, with ‘star stuff,’ as Carl Sagan liked to put it, being flung out into the universe. Through stellar generations we can trace a higher concentration of the heavier elemen
No, he Cam't!
Yo, Blair! Two little words that seemed to express everything that had gone wrong between our last but one prime minister and the US president he had decided to affix himself to.

For those who decided this was merely one of B
Mandatory humiliation activity.
So now we know. The government's workfare programme, known as mandatory work activity, has nothing whatsoever to do with getting the long-term unemployed back into work.

The study, which compared the outcomes between 3,000 of those put onto MWA and 125,000 on

Snooki’s nude pictures appear on the website
A few days ago, some rather naked pictures of Snooki began appearing on the Internet. I point out rather racy because they are fully nude pictures with censor bars covering the unmentionables. Meanwhile, no one was quite sure, if they were photo-shopped or legitimate, and even how they appeared on the web for those matters. Snooki’s ex-BF Emilio Masella is adamant…he’s not the mastermind behind th

Israel Not Invited To Counterterrorism Forum

Turkey is the co-convenor of the Forum, with the

It is not merely amusing that Cameron refers Warsi for investigation for al

How Would You Measure Success at the Rio Summit?
When the heavily hyped three-day U.N. Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD) comes to a close in Rio de Janeiro Jun. 22, what would be the yardstick to measure its successes and failures?
