Retired Air Force Colonel Sam Gardiner’s Century Foundation‘s report The End of the “Summer of Diplomacy”: Assessing U.S. Military Options on Iran is worth a read (download pdf file here. This is the third paragraph of the introduction:

Unfortunately, the military option does not make sense. When I discuss the possibility of an American military strike on Iran with my European friends, they invariably point out that an armed confrontation does not make sense— that it would be unlikely to yield any of the results that American policymakers do want, and that it would be highly likely to yield results that they do not. I tell them they cannot understand U.S. policy if they insist on passing options through that filter. The “making sense” filter was not applied over the past four years for Iraq, and it is unlikely to be applied in evaluating whether to attack Iran.

The Princeton report on the Diebold electronic voting machine is worth a read, particularly as the intention is to introduce some forms of electronic voting in the UK possibly by 2008 and certainly by 2011. We know the Goverment’s technical expertise…..


Modern Times

from Stratfor today:

It is little wonder, then, that the Bush administration last week proposed draft legislation that would exempt CIA officers and other civilian government employees from prosecution and lawsuits related to the treatment of terrorist suspects in U.S. custody. Meanwhile, a number of former and current CIA employees have purchased private liability insurance to cover potential legal expenses and to protect against any civil judgments that could bankrupt them personally.

I’ve uploaded an mp3 of piero heliczer reading as no-one seemed to have anything. It’s from a cassette tape made from a reel-to-reel recorded probably in Anselm Hollo’s flat in London (the baby in the background doesn’t sound like one of ours) in the early 1960s. The poems read are:

00.00 minutes
You Coul Hear the Snow Dripping and Falling into the Deer’s Mouth
06.00 minutes
14.00 minutes
English Girls
18.00 minutes
Paris – a Scenario for a Silent Movie (first 60 seconds distorted, even after work)
26.00 minutes
29.00 minutes
a few fragments

The mp3 should play through, or you can download it for personal use.
