In unrelated news, I now have bookshelves. I’m not allowed to put them together for another few days because my sister still has exams, though.
Some random links:
Diebold sucks. But then, we knew that already. Why bother having elections at all if you’re going to hold them like that?
And finally, Larry Moran passes on a bit of wisdom regarding Iraq, courtesy of everyone’s favorite creationist troll.
Here’s the deal Jim. In order to have an effective force in fighting guerilla and urban wars in Arab countries we need actual combat veterans seasoned in that type of warfare leading the unseasoned troops. Use your head, Jim. Now we have an effective force led by NCOs who know how to survive urban and guerilla wars in Arab countries. And Bush managed to build that force without losing 58,000 American lives as were sacrificed in Vietnam but rather limited the losses to 3,000. Use your head for something other than a place to put your hat, Jim. We needed a veteran ground combat force for the Middle Eastern theater. Now we have one. Now what happened to Russia in Afghanistan won’t happen to us.
Isn’t that brilliant?
