He is also author of the website The Democrat’s Diary democratsdiary.co.uk :::::: piet: I'm only posting the footnotes here:

On the Iraqi government interior ministry’s torture chambers, see “Abuse reports fuel Iraqi tensions”, Jim Muir, BBC News website, 16 November 2005 (http://news.bbc.co.uk/.. ).
On the use of death squads see “Frontline police of new Iraq are waging secret war of vengeance”, Peter Beaumont, The Observer, 20 November 2005 ( http://observer.guardian.co.uk/.l) . As the Washington Post reported, these militia are often “trained and equipped by the United States and Britain”. See “Militias on the Rise Across Iraq”, Anthony Shadid and Steve Fainaru, Washington Post, 21 August 2005 (washingtonpost.com/.. ). The use of paramilitary death squads by the new Iraqi government follows in the best traditions of US-backed client regimes in the third world, particularly in Latin America. For background, see the website of the pressure group “School of Americas Watch” (soaw.org/ ) and, for the results of the School’s education, see chapter 2 of Noam Chomsky’s “What Uncle Sam Really Wants”, 1993 (zmag.org/chomsky/..).

pulpculture Says stuff about technorati --- November 1st, 2005 at 11:31 am -- piet Says: ------- don’t trust that place I don’t. Blogs that rank (blogflux) a 4 are still worth nothing if technorati (and the cute smile opp guy) don’t like you. I tried using technorati (mainly in searches for Ward Churchill) and run into anything from juvenilesque naive to calloused and assinine right wing sites.
November 2nd, 2005 at 6:54 am -- pulpculture Says: Yah, it was just a joke, though. Having fun with the whole blogosphere is the center of the universe thing. But hey, if it makes people want to have a business blog because it’s the hottest thing since sliced white bread, then I’m game. I’m a shameless bitch like that.
culture labiant points me to a blog that looks good:
categories there: Kids - Oil - Parenting - The State - War -- from the smallish linklist: differenzmaschine.blogsome.com/ this one requires
a pref installed browser to test the content tranquilly.
one specimen from labiant lass her siterings:
waveflux.net/archives/001717.php Brace yourself for "Blogging: Don't forget your paper bag" wherein a concluding paragraph that goes (out) like this: "Still, I can't argue with Atrios' suggestion of anonymity for people testing the blog waters, which are cold, murky, and turbulent. And the undertow is a
bitch. You'll irritate some people who'll say anonymity undermines credibility on a given subject, but you're probably the best judge of whether that's so. Besides, irritating people seems to be a large part of what blogging is all about." emphasis by piet

(I Ching Shamanic Oracle of Change, commentary to line one, Hexagram 17) ---------- Rinri, the Japanese word from which this Newsletter derives its title, means ethical enlightenment. As we approach the closing of the cycle, the need for a global ethical enlightenment has never been greater, especially since we have entered the Way of Wielding Power. The nation most in need of such enlightenment is the United States of America, the most benighted nation on Earth. Hello, America, is anybody listening? 2012 is just around the corner. It's not too late to choose the path of the future, the path of Thirteen Moons, and forsake your identity as Americans. It will be good for the planet if you can do so.

http://hyperstition.abstractdynamics.org/archives/006726.html Nick: 'Problem solving' (rock grinding and solubilizing it with rain and plant sap) seems right, but what is a 'problem' other than a place-holder for a yet undiscovered solution? A productive innovation retrospectively exposes a prior problem that need not have been recognized as such in advance. The merely definitional and the substantive slide into each other easily in this area. ----- your last line gains valence if you allow interpretation of the cryptic 'problem solving' thusly: rock grinding and solubilizing it with rain and plant sap.

US Military Cowardice Costing Civilian Lives Posted by Mr Manifesto on 09-26-2004 02:21 AM: This is what happens when you're too gutless to send ground troops after enemy forces, leaving it to 'extremely precise' airstrikes instead. Civilians get killed, every time. Yet there are still those who say that the US military are going to great lengths to minimise civilian casualties.
Don't make me laugh.
