A very large delivery of US weaponry to Israel consisting of 3,000 tons of "ammunition" is scheduled to sail to Israel. The size and nature of the shipments are described as "unusual":

"Shipping 3,000-odd tons of ammunition in one go is a lot," one broker said, on condition of anonymity.

"This (kind of request) is pretty rare and we haven't seen much of it quoted in the market over the years," he added.

"Shipping brokers in London who have specialized in moving arms for the British and U.S. military in the past said such ship charters to Israel were rare. (Reuters, Jan 10, 2009)

Whacking the Pinata - A Citizen's Response to Bush's War Escalation Speech

I was sitting and watching Bush's speech (1/10/07) when I decided I had to respond and break it down point by point to show people exactly how wrong I think he is.

Not just wrong as in, "in error", wrong as in "morally disgusting", "sickeningly cruel", and "deliberately deceptive".

And he used the mythic events of 9/11 as the central compelling justification for all the resulting mayhem.

So I did my best to correct the record as I see it.
