The Rules of War
For the insurgents, Iraq has become a war without rules, and yet the militants also score big propaganda victories every time Americans break their own codes of warfare. In the battle for Fallujah the insurgents feigned surrender, waving white flags to approach within killing range of U.S. Marines and Iraqi government forces. They positioned their fighters in mosques, medical centers and civilian neighborhoods. They booby-trapped their fallen comrades' corpses and shot at crews trying to collect the Muslim dead. Practically every taboo has been discarded. Women, children and international relief groups have become deliberate targets. Ambulances are used to smuggle weapons. Torture of hostages has become a public spectacle, with videos passed out like press kits to TV stations, and posted on the Internet when the Arabic channels balk at showing such atrocities.

UBL-Chechen Linkage Since 1995 - Declassified DIA Intel
This via the Moscow Times:

Osama bin Laden has been actively involved in the terrorist insurgency in Chechnya since 1995, sending al-Qaida agents to the North Caucasus and sponsoring Chechen rebels, according to a declassified U.S. intelligence report released by Judicial Watch, a U.S. public corruption watchdog, late last week.
If you come inside, I'll explain just how it is that a young man from an Arab country might end up joining the global jihad elsewhere. I'm talking about the disposable cannon-fodder kinds of guys, not the masterminds.

Breaking Taboos
Egypt's recent voting history: since Mubarak came to power in 1981 there have been four elections, with him as the sole candidate and a "yes/no" option. Has Jimmy Carter complained about this lately, btw? 'Cause I trust Jimmy to look out for things like fair elections.

Lieberman In The Cabinet?
Lieberman Open to Cabinet Position:
Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut — the leader of the hawkish "Scoop Jackson" wing of the Democratic Party — is responding positively to the suggestion that President Bush offer him a post in his Cabinet.

On Sunday, asked by interviewer Chris Wallace on Fox News whether he would accept such a position, Lieberman replied, "I'd certainly think about it."

Lieberman added that, discussion of himself aside, "it would be very good for the country to have some Democrats in the Cabinet" in order "to make clear to America and to the world that George Bush's policy in the war on terror is not just his policy, it's American policy."

The speculation that Bush might tap Lieberman, who flopped in the Democratic presidential primaries, for a Cabinet post has been advanced by his friend, Senator John McCain, an Arizona Republican, as well as by the neoconservative commentator William Kristol and by New Republic writer Lawrence Kaplan. Kaplan wrote in the magazine's November 16 online edition that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld "and the neoconservatives around him will be departing soon enough — replaced, in all likelihood, by a senator, perhaps even Joe Lieberman."
Um. I'm pretty sure Lawrence Kaplan has no clue what he's talking about; Rumsfeld will be with us for at least two more years and possibly for the duration of the second Bush term. Yeah, Bush, MBA guy, governor of Texas, CEO of the USA, an executive in every job he's ever held, is gonna replace Rumsfeld, another business executive guy, at the helm of the Pentagon, with a do-nothing senator?! Yeah right!

Falwell's Law
Let's see, if I had my choice of religious lawyers, whom would I pick? I had a Christian lawyer once, he wasn't particularly Christian about lowering his fees, though.
Best known for establishing in 1979 the Moral Majority, one of the first evangelical efforts to affect political discourse, Falwell sees the law school as an extension of his mission.

"We certainly are training Christian activists," Falwell, who this month announced the creation of a 21st century version of the Moral Majority that aims to re-energize religious conservatives, said in an interview last week. "We're turning their attention to understand the Bible is the infallible word of God, that the American Constitution is a sacred document and that the Christian worldview is their matrix of service."

But for many students, the Christianity at the school's core does not mandate that they promote religion in the courtroom. Nor do faculty members see producing such graduates as their goal. As they point out, lawyers — not Falwell — do the teaching.

Pentagon is focusing on Iran
The Guardian is reporting that Pentagon shows even more controversial approaches than its European counterparts in how decisively it deals with the mullahs' nuclear threat.
With a deadline of tomorrow for Iran to begin an agreed freeze on enriching uranium, which can be used to produce nuclear weapons, sources have disclosed that the latest Pentagon gaming model for 'neutralising' Iran's nuclear threat involves strikes in support of regime change
If you wonder what is the latest Pentagon gaming model, in case you didn't know, here it is[pdf].

It should now be clear that George Bush is determined to seriously deal with this issue and if we imagine the European leaders as ants in their nest, the latest focus of Pentagon on Iran is working like throwing water on them.
Although the United States has made clear that it would seek sanctions against Iran through the United Nations should it not meet its obligations, rather than undertake military action, the new modelling at the Pentagon, with its shift in emphasis from suspected nuclear to political target lists, is causing deep anxiety among officials in the UK, France and Germany.

The Bookseller of Kabul
A heartfelt, close-up view of an Afghani family after the end of the Taliban. Beautifully written, it gives us a glimpse of the life of Mr. Khan, a bookseller and booklover in an unlikely place.
When I left I said to myself: "This is Afghanistan. How interesting it would be to write a book about this family."
The next day I called on Sultan in his bookshop and told him my idea.
"Thank you" was all he said.
"But this means that I would have to come and live with you."
"You are welcome."
"I would have to go around with you, live the way you live. With you, your wives, sisters, sons."
"You are welcome," he repeated.

Bush to the Rescue
Truth or fiction? President or Superman? Whatever. He's cute.
U.S. President George W. Bush reached into a throng of squabbling bodyguards and pulled a Secret Service agent away from Chilean security officers after they stopped the him from accompanying the president at a dinner.

Chilean security stopped several members of the president's Secret Service detail and a pushing and shoving match ensued. It occurred as Bush was entering the Mapocho Station cultural centre on Saturday for an official dinner of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit's 21 leaders.

Bush was posing for pictures on the red carpet with his wife, Laura, and Chilean President Richard Lagos and his wife, Luisa Duran, when the president noticed the confrontation unfolding behind him.

He stepped away from them and reached into the quarrelling crowd and hauled the lead Secret Service agent from Chilean security agents.

For a few seconds Bush met resistance from the Chilean officers. Bush was seen shaking his head and muttering under his breath as he walked away.

Holocaust Data
Israel's Holocaust museum on Sunday posted on the Internet for the first time biographical information about three million of the six million Jews killed by Nazi Germany.

The database, at www.yadvashem.org, is partly based on more than two million "pages of testimony" submitted to the Yad Vashem memorial in Jerusalem since 1950 by survivors or family members and friends of Jews killed in the Holocaust.

Hizb Allah's Al-Manar TV
Jewish groups have objected to a French decision to allow the television arm of Lebanon's Hizb Allah movement to continue broadcasting to Europe using a French satellite operator. The CRIF umbrella group of French Jewish organisations accused the French government of failing to protect citizens from broadcasts by the Hizb Allah's Al-Manar TV, which CRIF says includes anti-Semitic films that incite Muslims to attack Jews.
