Revising history better than any politically correct educational publishing house ever could: The Iraqi Information Minister throughout history.
First they let Daniel Vettori open the batting, and now some insane Kiwi is building a cruise missile in his backyard. And writing about it on his website.
However, there have also been a number of people who claim I’m overstating the case and that it’s not possible to build a real cruise missile without access to sophisticated gear, specialist tools and information not readily available outside the military.
So, in order to prove my case, I decided to put my money where my mouth is and build a cruise missile in my own garage, on a budget of just US$5,000.
I like to think of this project as the military version of “Junkyard Wars”.
Obviously the goal of this website is not to provide terrorists or other nefarious types with the plans for a working cruise missile but to prove the point that nations need to be prepared for this type of sophisticated attack from within their own borders.
Just in case you are a terrorist though…
A detailed level of documentation will be provided to those who qualify and are willing to pay a small subscription for full access to the project diary.
I’m sure this guy thinks he’s tough, but a true hacker would have built it out of Legos.
A new poll reflects what everybody already new. Palestinians favour “Peace without Israel” over “Peace with Israel” by a huge margin:
Muslims lined up strongly behind the opinion that “the rights and needs of the Palestinian people cannot be taken care of as long as the state of Israel exists.”
The conviction that no way can be found for Israel and the Palestinians to coexist is strongest in Morocco (90 percent), followed by Jordan (85 percent), the Palestinian Authority (80 percent), Kuwait (72 percent), Lebanon (65 percent), Indonesia (58 percent) and Pakistan (57 percent).
Tim Blair shows the amateurs like Phillip Adams and the New York Times the right way to reuse material.
Q: How do you confuse a blonde?
A: Tell her that the same people who predicted hundreds of thousands of casualties and a massive refugee crisis are now condemning US intelligence for supplying inaccurate information about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.
Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: To wave its anti-war banner in front of television cameras.
And Jim Treacher has a go as well:
BUSH STOLE THE ELECTION!!!
Today, June 4, represents 14 years since the Tiananmen Square massacre in Beijing.
While the dupes infatuated with the failed ideologies of Lenin, Marx and Mao draw Hitler moustaches on Western Leaders, China continues to silence and imprison those who would prefer to live in a democracy.
Four Chinese intellectuals accused of criticizing the government on the Internet and setting up a democracy study group have been sentenced to up to ten years in prison for subversion, a human rights group reported.
Today in Hong Kong, pro-democracy activists are taking the chance to commemorate the event, while they still can.
This is because of the almost certain enactment of a controversial security law in this Special Administrative Region of China.
Prodemocracy activists fear that if the law is enacted, future protests could meet a similar fate as in Beijing in 1989, when hundreds, if not thousands of peaceful demonstrators were killed as the People’s Liberation Army dispersed the pro-democracy protestors.
The kids at Indymedia weren’t too busy to hassle Peter Costello. I wonder if there will be any action today?
Update: Nope. This week isn’t a complete blowout though. “How to stop the US global empire” on the 7th should be a hoot!
