6/20    In the encyclopedia under "cognitive dissonance" it says "see emarkp
        and the below Lancet threads."
        \_ d00d, cognitive dissonance is "no doubt" there were WMDs to:  uh,
           why can't we find any?  oh yeah, because they're in syria or buried
           in the desert.

2/5     Remember that Lancet study?  (Well, Lancet II actually.)  Turns out the
        authors refuse to release their methodology.

11/4    Gee.  I have always hoped that the first black POTUS would be Powell.
        Now this 47-yr-old dude stole the opportunity created by Dubya.  In a
        way Dubya is like Gobachev -- they both instrumented their parties'
        \_ Powell fucked us all by backing Dubya in saying there were WMDs in

6/6     WTF? Does Romney have even the faintest idea what a "null set" is?
        \_ I think it's more shocking that he apparently doesn't know that
           the IAEA inspectors were, y'know, in Iraq.
           \_ Let's be honest, Saddam did not fully open his country.  Yes, the
              inspectors were there, but Saddam was at least attempting to make

6/7     Iran caught red-handed arming the Taliban
        \_ By "red-handed" you mean "senior white house officials" leaked
           some "intelligence."
           \_ I hear Saddam had WMDs
           \_ No, NATO officials, not white house officials.  And Richard

3/26    This is a good read, though it's a long article,
        how the US has no plans to 'rescue' our Iraqi
        allies when we eventually leave Iraq:
        \_ Isn't the idea that we leave when they are ready to fully control
           their own country so they don't need rescue?

3/5     Lancet Article re 650K Iraqi deaths may be inaccurate:
        \_ Still waiting for someone else to do an actual scientific study
           that indicates otherwise. So far, all we have seen are politically
           based claims that the numbers "just can't be."
           \_ So, I can make any claim I want, and I don't have to prove it,

12/29   R.I.H. Saddam Hussein
        \_ Hope GWB joins him soon.
        \_ YES! Death to all tyrants in the world! Now there will be peace
`               \_ E_SICSEMPERTYRANNIS
           and harmony in the middle east again, where Shiites and Sunnis
           will hold hands and celebrate. We can now bring the troops back.

        Saddam verdict to be read on November 5th
        \_ You're right.  What are the odds he'd get his verdict 101 years
           to the day after the board game Monopoly was released?

3/26    One more reason to use PGP, and maybe the Anonymizer. And by the way,
        only 1700 porn pictures? I have at least 100X that:
