    The Jihadist was blitzed by a French mortar shell while casually talking to camera and it was abruptly cut short. Beforehand, a faint explosion is heard in the background, but then the explosive suddenly thuds in from behind. The man appears to try to duck out of the way, but it was clearly in vain as the video fades to black and high-pitched screams ring out. **Warning graphic content that may disturb some viewers**

    One of the U.S. Army’s giant surveillance blimps will rise to 10,000 feet above Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland on Friday for a three-year test. A second aircraft will begin testing in January. The Army’s Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS), which is built by Raytheon, will be tested for its ability to identify incoming enemy aircraft. “This will enable senior defense officials to support a determination whether to transition JLENS capabilities to an enduring mission at the conclusion of the three-year operational exercise,” the North American Aerospace Defense Command said in a statement on...

    President Obama signaled Congress this week that he is planning on providing Moscow with US missile defense secrets. The Washington Times reported: President Obama signaled Congress this week that he is prepared to share U.S. missile defense secrets with Russia. In the president’s signing statement issued Saturday in passing into law the fiscal 2012 defense authorization bill, Mr. Obama said restrictions aimed at protecting top-secret technical data on U.S. Standard Missile-3 velocity burnout parameters might impinge on his constitutional foreign policy authority. As first disclosed in this space several weeks ago, U.S. officials are planning to provide Moscow with the...

    "Noting the interdependence among peace, security and development, President Rousseff and President Obama reaffirmed their desire to build a just and inclusive world order, which promotes democracy, human rights and social justice." "They reaffirmed the imperative to modernize the international financial institutions in a way that reflects the changes in the world economy and moves towards global financial stability, sustainable development and poverty reduction." "They welcomed the strengthening of the collaboration on environment and climate change, including under the Common Agenda on Environment and the Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation Regarding Climate Change, and agreed to include in the Common...

    OAKLAND -- Incoming mayor and current Councilmember Jean Quan received an unwanted surprise Tuesday when she found a boot on the car she had parked in her reserved City Hall spot. The car in question, a Toyota Prius, is registered to Quan's husband, Floyd Huen. A police technician ran a check on the car and discovered that it had more than $1,000 worth of unpaid parking tickets, parking officials confirmed. The tech then ordered workers to immobilize the car. Quan said Wednesday evening that the couple had received the tickets during her campaign, which had kept her "extraordinarily busy." Her...

    UC Berkeley is adding something a little different this year in its welcome package -- cotton swabs for a DNA sample. In the past, incoming freshman and transfer students have received a rather typical welcome book from the College of Letters and Science's "On the Same Page" program, but this year the students will be asked for more. The students will be asked to voluntarily submit a DNA sample. The cotton swabs will come with two bar code labels. One label will be put on the DNA sample and the other is kept for the students own records. The confidential...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraq's incoming prime minister said Wednesday he will unveil his Cabinet to parliament this weekend, the first sign that the country may finally be moving ahead with a national unity government after weeks of wrangling. There are hopes that sharing power successfully will help heal the sectarian rift underlying the relentless wave of violence that has swept Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion three years ago and open the way for American troops to begin returning home. But talks were still under way on choices to head the critical ministries of interior and defense, which control the police...

    Maybe the early bird will get that elusive worm of news-cycle dominance today. As of this writing, President and Mrs. Bush have already done an NBC Today Show interview with Matt Lauer, and participated in an early morning Habitat for Humanity build in Covington, LA. They'll soon visit a re-opened elementary school in Pass Christian, MS. The intent: to change the subject from Miers/Rove/DeLay/Iraq to the Administration’s effort to rebuild the Gulf Coast, around which Bush appears to be re-centering his domestic agenda. Democrats and like-minded interest groups are also adjusting to try to block this effort; see below for...
  • WARPLANE WEAPONS: Why Concrete Filled Bombs are Useful

    Strategy Page ^ | September 15, 2005
    One of the strangest, and most useful, bombs employed in Iraq has been the concrete filled smart bomb (laser guided or JDAM). Why deliver a 500 pound bomb filled with concrete instead of explosives? You do that if you want to do some damage, but not a lot. Concrete JDAMs were first used in the 1990s to destroy anti-aircraft guns, radars and missiles that Saddam Hussein placed in residential areas. He believed that the Americans would not attack these weapons, for fear of hurting nearby civilians. But it turned out that a laser, or satellite (JDAM) guided concrete smart bomb...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

  • The Supreme Court's curious view of privacy.

    04/12/2005 8:21:32 PM PDT · by z9z99 · 11 replies · 594+ views
    The notion of privacy and the judicial construct of the “right to privacy” are inextricably linked with American concepts of sexual conduct. This linkage is so accepted, that we fail to notice that it is based on an ambiguity and a logical fallacy. When the Supreme Court recognized the “right of privacy,” it was not in fact referring to privacy, but to liberty. The notion of preventing legislative action in matters of sex and reproduction was introduced by Justice Harlan in 1961 with his declaration: "I believe that a statute making it a criminal offense for married couples to use...

    CHICAGO (AP) A bus driver for the Dave Matthews Band pleaded guilty Wednesday to dumping 800 pounds of human waste from the vehicle's septic tank onto a sightseeing boat on the Chicago River last summer. The driver, Stefan Wohl, was sentenced to 18 months probation, 150 hours of community service and the maximum $10,000 fine, which will be paid to Friends of the Chicago River, said Tom Stanton, a spokesman for the Cook County State's Attorney's office. Wohl, 42, of Selma, Texas, pleaded guilty to the original charges filed against him in January, reckless conduct and discharging contaminates to cause...

    Dec. 24, 2004 -- A "mostly" unidentified object was spotted this morning soaring at extremely high altitude just north of Alaska, apparently headed south. After pin-pointing the object on radar, U.S. military aircraft was poised to provide an "emergency" escort to the United States and other points through midnight tonight. Though uncertain of the origin of the high-flying object, it is believed to resemble an old-fashioned sleigh and a jolly fat man can be seen with the reins to a passle of wild reindeer. The object appears to be overloaded, with strange packages spilling out and dropping onto villages and...
