The normalization of the domestic use of drones concerns me greatly.

As we have seen in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Yemen, weaponized drones create massive carnage.

I would not want to bet against the coming of extrajudicial assassinations, courtesy of weaponized drones, to be coming home right here in the US, in the not so distant future.

What can we do? We can't even guarantee free and fair elections in our own country. We can't get our own government to respect the source of its own authority. How the fuck are we supposed to get our illegitimate government to do the right thing on Gaza? Instead, we have our coward Fucking Affairs Minister John Baird babbling like the idiot he is:Hamas is targeting innocent civilians with an onsla
Last Two Races In For House Seats-- Lord Charles Boustany (LA-R) and Mike McIntyre (Blue Dog-NC) Are Leading
With Allen West's anti-climactic concession yesterday, only two House races remain up in the air. One, in Louisiana's 3rd CD, pits two Republican incumbents against each other, Lord Boustany-- who is heavily favored to win the December 8th runoff-- and teabaggy freshman Jeff Landry. It isn't that Democrats have no interest in a race in which the 2 Republicans are fighting with each other over whic
Gaza War – Invasion Cancelled Or Just Postponed?
The agreement that came into effect just a few hours is not an accord for peace but merely a ceasefire. It is unlikely to be permanent and further talks are unlikely to yield much for the Palestinians. Meanwhile, the Israeli troops amassed at the Gaza Strip’s borders continue their build-up and they remain on alert ready to move a moments notice as Netanyahu warns “of possible additional military

Finally! A good thing to come out of Romney's candidacy
by liberal japonicus Every cloud has a silver lining. From a Dem point of view, having Romney as a candidate may have been all silver lining, but it is hard to imagine the tiniest glimmer from the Republican side, as this Amy Davidson New Yorker piece makes perfectly clear. Of course, if you are a heighten the contradictions kind of person, you might argue that Romney's candidacy was the best

The Palestinian Genocide Continues
Strangely, even the sight on television of the body of a small boy, the same age as Cameron, being dug by hand from the bomb rubble, is not what has stayed with me strongest from the latest attack on the Palestinians. Instead, I recall most vividly a radio broadcast on the BBC World Service two days before the attack on Gaza began. It was a banal, everyday story of Palestinian villagers being evi
Thanks for the many good wishes. I am now quite well, even if a lot slimmer. The problem was purely physical on this occasion, though Nadira and Cameron flying out to join me certainly helped me feel a lot better. I shall be back in the UK at the weekend.

Bits and Pieces - November 21, 2012
It seems to me that there are some deep psychological roots to survivalism. We all live with a variety of uncertainties, ranging from death to whether our car will start to finding we're out of cereal. And that's just on the personal side. Outside factors include storms and wars. Focusing on survival from whatever externalizes the anxiety on all these fronts and, perhaps, makes it easier to manage

Already looking forward to the next.
The news coming through this evening that a ceasefire has been agreed between Israel and Hamas is undoubtedly welcome.  Any halt to the violence, however short-lived, is to be applauded.  In practice however, the agreement brokered by Egypt has done little more than return us to the situation prior to the assassination of Ahmed al-Jabari last Wednesday.  While in theory the deal calls for the open

Educate All Kids Like Sasha and Malia
Now that Barack Obama has been re-elected president, it’s time that he start making good on the education issues he emphasized during his campaign. While in speeches and in ads the president seized on Romney’s statement that class size doesn’t matter, the truth is that Obama’s Education Secretary Arne Duncan has dismissed the importance of class size nearly as strongly. Worse yet, Duncan propose
