Three depressing links about the war.

  1. Here's a first-hand account of what it's like to be arrested and jailed by the secret police in Iraq right now. If you're lucky, that is.

  2. We're scouring our poor island colonies for recruits. Young people in places like Guam have no jobs and no future in our WWII leftover archipelago, so we're sending them to the next colony. It's the new Gurkhas.

  3. Counterpunch is a marginal news source (I don't trust Cockburn so much). However, if we really did lose nuclear warheads off Somalia in 1991 and someone got hold of it, we're about to star in a really bad James Bond movie. We've certainly lost nukes before, including a spectacular incident off Spain a long time ago.
I'm going to go outside and pet puppies now.
