Two links to make your head hurt and one to make you smile
- Pentagon to train Saddam's opponents | CNN Call me crazy but isn't this what happened in Afghanistan in the early 80's? Surely Saddams opponents could never become our opponents?
- Military Is Easing Its War on Drugs | LA Times I finally watched Traffic this weekend. I'm not sure I'm down with the reason they give in the LA Times article for reducing the 'war' effort, but damn I'm sure there is something better we can do with $1 Billion dollars than stopping marijuana from crossing the border. It might require some 'out of the box' thinking but I think the war was won by drugs a long time ago. Don't get me wrong, I don't want folks going around hopped up on goofballs all the time, but there must be another solution.
- diesel sweeties: love and pixels I'm buying the 'I'm a rocker and I rock out shirt'. This and my pair of worn out jeans shall restore(?) my indie cred.
