From Polizeros pal Steve Hynd at The Agonist. Something here stinks and, frankly, I think Afghans have been in general far more reliable about their accounts of civilian killings than the Pentagon has. There will be Hell to pay if there was a death squad and the Pentagon is covering it up.
The 16 civilians murdered in Afghanistan allegedly by a US sergeant happened in one of the few areas of the planet with a concentration of my very very rare Y-Chromosome DNA Haplogroup/Subclade, “G2c.” So, as I ponder the insanity of these killings it’s not some sort of abstraction that happened to faceless people in a […]

These includes the Supreme Court ruling that California prisons are cruel and unusual punishment because […]

Steve Hynd, who lives in Texas, makes a convincing case that Rick Perry could become the Republican candidate for president in 2012 after Newt Gingrich’s campaign crated yesterday. Perry could be a compromise candidate, given the weak field and hard-right Tea Partiers who will split that vote among themselves. He is glib, telegenic, able to […]
The turbines pump water onto new cropland or into holding areas for when there is no wind. This is an ancient use of wind, but is being used for the first time in Afghanistan in areas where there is no electricity.
