Two-Faced - Shadowproof

It took until after his corruption scandal-induced resignation, but interim Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert recently gave an interview to the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth urging Israel to negotiate a comprehensive peace with its neighbors or be consigned to endless war. . Here are some key excerpts:I read the reports of our generals and I say, "how have they not learned a single thing?" Once, a very senior official told me, "They’re still living in the War of Independence and the Sinai Campaign." With them it’s all about tanks, about controlling territories or controlled...

And When You Come Calling Me Down I'll Put On My Disease - Shadowproof

If you only read one book about al-Qaeda in the next year, please make it Brynjar Lia’s . Lia, a Norwegian scholar, presents the life, theories and strategies of Abu Mus’ab al-Suri, who has done more than any other al-Qaeda affiliate to explain what the jihadist movement should look like over the next generation-plus: a diffuse, anonymous ideological movement reliant on self-starter jihadists with absolutely no command direction from al-Qaeda’s senior leadership. Architect of Global Jihad‘s appendix presents a lengthy translation of al-Suri’s The Global Islamic Resistance Call, which is...

Civilian Casualties, Strategic Objectives And Root Causes - Shadowproof

Civilian Casualties, Strategic Objectives And Root Causes - Shadowproof

in partial response to something I about considering civilian casualties to have strategic implications for the Afghanistan war:If we’re not willing to accept the fact that civilians are going to be killed in war – and that lives will be upturned by the determination that our perceived interests in southern and eastern Afghanistan trump those of local civilians – then we have no business fighting this war in the first place. This isn’t intended as a dig on Spencer (who I’m sure understands this) but there is something frustrating about the way we seem to talk about civilian casualties in...

Last Chance For A Slow Dance - Shadowproof

Michael "DJ Tittsworth" Goldfarb, McCain’s blogger, has finally come up with a strategy to deal with the fact that his boss doesn’t understand the basic chronology of the Anbar Awakening and the surge: .

But let’s see what VoteVets — you know, — has to say about that charming line of attack.To suggest that Senator Obama wants to "lose" in Iraq is outlandish, thought I can’t help but notice that Senator McCain has no problem with the fact that we continue to lose ground every day in Afghanistan–the real War on Terror.Brian...

The Pyrex Is Jewish - Shadowproof

The Pyrex Is Jewish - Shadowproof

:ML: Do you guys think the ‘Look what them Jews made me’ line in “Freedom” is offensive?Malice: I don’t know. ‘Look what them Jews made me.’ I don’t know if it’s offensive or not, but we’re black so you should never get offended by anything that we say. I don’t know where that comes from, because especially over history we have been at the butt of everything, so I wouldn’t be offended if I was another race and somebody black said something about me. For real, I just wouldn’t be. I feel like minorities, we all in the same boat together. I think if we can say nigga we can say anything...

Once Again The Battlefield Is Your Body And Those Who Want Control Have Laid Down Their Terms In Black And White - Shadowproof

Once Again The Battlefield Is Your Body And Those Who Want Control Have Laid Down Their Terms In Black And White - Shadowproof

Such is the way of all things. An older generation, confused and frustrated over the world’s ability to triumph over its ambitions, projects its failures onto a younger one. For those involved in such fundamentally vain professions as opinion writing, the anxiety of obsolescence is particularly acute. , for example. Feminism’s Mickey Kaus is named Linda Hirshman. Hirshman published an against at — form follows function, I suppose — accusing Jezebel of "hurting women." Jezebel, to Hirshman, is not staffed by feminists, but whorish simulacra who are "clearly familiar with the rhetoric of...

She's A Sticky-Fingered Thookshook From Berlin Down To Belize - Shadowproof

A lot of people are asking: What can I expect from your Netroots Nation panel on Friday with , and ? And I reply: it’ll be sort of like a collaborative effort at catching an international criminal through answering a series of geography-based questions. Luckily, a young Ilan Goldenberg had practice at this sort of thing… One last Carmen Sandiego-related bit of trivia. A close friend of mine who shall remain nameless had sex with one of the guys in Rock-a-pella — the one who discovered in Jewish heritage — long after the show was canceled.Fund our reporting and keep our website online.
