Iraq and WWII

I found the following intresting observation at the The Shadowland Journal Blog.

In response to the latest Shadowland column, about Kevin Tillman's scream of rage at the administration and its war, a reader in California who still clings to "stay the course" rhetoric asks,
"Would today's America have the fortitute[sic] to persevere in World War II?

"Of course the answer is yes.

But consider this:From the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941 to final victory over Japan in August 1945, three years and eight months passed. The war was over.

From the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 to November 2006, three years and eight months will have passed. And there is no end to this war in sight. - C.D.

The Real Story about Iraq

The conservative radio talk show host Glenn Beck has produced a video called "The Real Story: Iraq"
The goal of this video is show us the good news about Iraq. The following is the description of the video that was sent out to those who sign up to recieve updates:

Last night on TV we ran a new video essay called "The Real Story: Iraq"and we've now made it available for free on our website. The video shows the other side of the war in Iraq: the pictures you've never seen before and the amazing accomplishments you've never heard about before.

We're trying to share this side of the story with as many people as possible, so please help us by sending this email around to everyone you know who is tired of the constant news about violence, death tolls and insurgents.
View the video at: www.glennbeck.com/realstory/iraq-video.shtml

You can watch the video and make up your own mind but I have to admit that I am getting sick and tired of people trying to say that things are going well in Iraq. As you watch the video keep in mind the following facts:


Iraq Body Count: War dead figures
The number of civilians reported to have been killed during the Iraq war and subsequent military presence is being recorded by the campaign group Iraq Body Count.
On 15 October 2006 it put the total number of reported civilian dead at 41,744 to 46,668 and the number of police dead at 2,578.

On 12 December, US President George W Bush said about 30,000 Iraqis had been killed since the war began.

His spokesman later said the figure was not an official one and was based on "public estimates cited by media reports" - a method similar to that used by Iraq Body Count.

You can read more from this report at: War dead figures


Since the start of the war in March 2003, a total of 2,786 American military personnel had died and 20,895 had been wounded as of yesterday, according to the Associated Press. Iraqi civilian casualties have also surged, to an average of 45 a day this month.

PARTS OF THE WORLD TO WATCH

I have posted many times over the last few months that people should be keeping up with what is happening in three specific parts of the world:

NORTH KOREA

AFGHANISTAN

SOMALIA

Today I am going to add another:

DARFUR

First let's look at some information about Darfur:

Darfur is a semi-arid western province of Sudan - Africa's largest country.
Darfur alone is the size of France.
In an Arab-dominated country, Darfur's population is mostly black African.

For more information about Darfur follow this link:
Darfur

Let's look at the history of the conflict:

Darfur conflict
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Darfur conflict is an ongoing armed conflict in the Darfur region of western Sudan, mainly between the Janjaweed, a militia group recruited from Abbala the (camel-herding Arabs) tribes, and the non-Baggara people (mostly land-tilling tribes) of the region.

The Sudanese government, while publicly denying that it supports the Janjaweed, has provided arms and assistance and has participated in joint attacks with the group, systematically targeting the Fur, Zaghawa, and Massaleit ethnic groups in Darfur.

The conflict began in July 2003. Unlike in the Second Sudanese Civil War, which was fought between the primarily Muslim north and Christian and Animist south, in Darfur most of the residents are Muslim, as are the Janjaweed.

Estimated number of deaths in the conflict have ranged from 50,000 (World Health Organization, September 2004) to 450,000 (Dr. Eric Reeves, 28 April 2006). Most NGOs use 400,000, a figure from the Coalition for International Justice that has since been cited by the United Nations.

As many as 2.5 million are thought to have been displaced.
The mass media has described the conflict as both "ethnic cleansing" and "genocide." The U.S.Government has described it as genocide, although the United Nations has declined to do so.

After fighting worsened in July and August 2006, on August 31, 2006, the United Nations Security Council approved Resolution 1706 which called for a new 20,000-troop UN peacekeeping force to supplant or supplement a poorly funded, ill-equipped 7,000-troop African Union Mission in Sudan peacekeeping force.
Sudan strongly objected to the resolution and said that it would see the UN forces in the region as foreign invaders. The next day, the Sudanese military launched a major offensive in the region.

You can read more about the conflict at this link: Darfur Conflict


Update on the Conflict:

United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan reported on 26 September the following: that Darfur “is again descending into a vicious cycle of violence,” that the situation “is becoming more desperate by the day” and that Darfur “is again on the brink of a catastrophic situation.”

Somalia

On Saturday, June 17, 2006 I posted an article called "3 Parts of the World to Watch"
You can read that post at this link: 3 Parts of the World to Watch

In that article I suggested that Somalia was a part of the world we should watch. I still believe that and feel that at some point Somalia will become a major focal point in the War on Terror.

I wanted to post an update on the Situation in Somalia:

The Following was taken from BBC News


Somalia's Islamists take key town

Fighters loyal to Somalia's Islamic courts have taken control of a key trading town from the transitional government without bloodshed.

They drove into Sakow on Wednesday evening moving closer to the seat of the interim administration in Baidoa.

Islamists are reported to be massing to the east of Baidoa, where government troops have been seen building defences with the aid of Ethiopian soldiers.

The opposing sides are due to meet in Sudan next week for peace talks.
Somalia has been in the grip of warlords and militias for years and has not had a functioning national government since 1991.

The Union of Islamic Courts (UIC) has consolidated its control over much of southern Somalia after seizing the capital, Mogadishu, in June.

The UIC was set up by businessmen who wanted to impose law and order, and their gunmen have become Somalia's strongest fighting force.

Pressure

"It was simple because we did not encounter any fighting when we entered the town," Sheikh Hassan Derow, an Islamist commander told AFP news agency.

Residents of the town which is 170km south-west of Baidoa, said pro-government forces fled to the north.

The BBC's East Africa correspondent Adam Mynott says the pressure is building towards a confrontation between the two sides.

But the UIC said it dids not intend to attack the transitional government but would defend itself against Ethiopian forces.

"The Courts' forces are still in their positions to defend the town (Baidoa) against the Ethiopian troops which began to move towards the Courts' forces," leading Islamic Courts offical Shaykh Sharif Shaykh Ahmad told the BBC.

Ethiopia has said that its only forces in Somalia are there for training purposes.
Eritrea, which is deeply hostile to Ethiopia, is also alleged to have sent troops to Somalia to reinforce the UIC.

Observers fear that Somalia could become engulfed in a wider war for control of the Horn of Africa.



I am also going to provide some links for people to do some more In-depth research:

Study: Scan May Be Best Test for Lung Cancer







A very intresting study appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine that may offer some hope for detecting Lung Cnacer in the early stages.

The Following is from the story that appeard on NPR yesterday:

Lung cancer kills more Americans than breast, prostate and colon cancer combined. But unlike those other cancers, there's no agreed-upon screening test to catch lung cancer when it's early and can be curable. A study in this week's New England Journal of Medicine may help change that. But experts disagree about when the evidence will be strong enough to recommend that people at risk of lung cancer get the screening test, called spiral CT.

Spiral CT is a computerized X-ray scan that takes hundreds of detailed pictures of the chest in the space of three seconds. It can spot lung tumors smaller than a pea.

Seven years ago, a group at Cornell University published one of the first big studies suggesting that spiral CT might be used to screen the lungs of smokers and former smokers for signs of lung cancer, long before symptoms appear. Now the same group is publishing results on more than 31,000 patients from around the world.

Dr. Claudia Henschke, who heads the Cornell group, says spiral CT turned up nearly 500 lung cancers.
"The overall survival was 80 percent," says Henschke, "which is quite dramatic compared to what the rates are in the U.S. ... Only about five percent of the people who are diagnosed with lung cancer eventually are cured of it. So that's a tremendous improvement.
The results look even better among the great majority of patients in the study diagnosed with early-stage lung cancer. Based on results so far, an impressive 92 percent of them are projected to be alive ten years after diagnosis.

"I think our study gives compelling evidence that screening is useful and can be done responsibly now," Henschke says.
Henschke is the most prominent enthusiast for lung
cancer screening. Others in the medical community are just as enthusiastic. alone. Dr. James Mulshine of Rush University in Chicago, a veteran cancer-prevention expert who sits on Henschke's advisory board, calls the new results a landmark.
"In one fell swoop, you go from 15 percent, five-year survival to 92 percent, ten-year survival," Mulshine says. "That's amazing. Claudia's result is spectacular. The question is, is it generalizable? And should it be the basis of public health policy changes?"
Mulshine says the new results should force a public debate on that question.
"This is a very strong suggestion that lung cancer screening can conform to the kind of experience we've had with colon cancer and breast cancer and cervical cancer," Mulshine says.
Other experts urge caution.

"This study basically demonstrates that those individuals who have a lesion detected by CT, who are then diagnosed with early-stage lung cancer, do fairly well, which we've known for over 40 years," says Dr. Ned Patz, a radiologist at Duke University.

He says the study hasn't resolved whether individuals who are screened for lung cancer will fare better in the long run than individuals who aren't.

That's exactly the question that Dr. Denise Aberle of UCLA Medical Center is trying to answer. She heads a giant, federally financed study that will cost hundreds of millions of dollars. It's enrolled 53,000 smokers and former smokers. Half are getting annual CT scans, and half are getting annual chest X-rays.

Aberle says the study published this week can't determine if spiral CT actually reduces lung cancer deaths in the long run because there was no comparison group that didn't get spiral CT.
"We know it prolongs survival," Aberle says. "We absolutely need to know whether or not the screening intervention reduces lung cancer mortality."

She says prolonging individual patients' survival isn't the same thing as making a big dent in the overall lung cancer death rate, and only studies like hers and others underway in Europe can nail down that question.

But results from those studies won't be available for at least three years. In that time, 480,000 Americans will die from lung cancer, and some experts think spiral CT might save some of those lives.

Still, there's not likely to be an official recommendation until further big studies are concluded.
For the 80 million Americans at risk of lung cancer who choose to seek a spiral CT test in the meantime, the American Cancer Society warns that there are risks from spiral CT. A positive result can lead to lung biopsies and major surgery for findings that may turn out not to be lung cancer.

The Cornell group found ways to reduce those risks. But everyone agrees that American doctors in general are a long way from being ready to deal with the complicated issues that arise from screening for lung cancer.

Fiasco!

Fiasco
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A fiasco means a complete or humiliating failure, especially of a pretentious undertaking. syn: fanasco

The Concise Oxford Dictionary gives fiascos as the plural, although fiascoes is also seen, especially in the United States.

The word is an Italian word meaning a "flask" or the type of round wine bottle, sometimes wrapped in straw, used traditionally for Chianti wine. The Concise Oxford notes that the allusion is unexplained, but various possibilities have been suggested.

The more modern Compact Oxford Dictionary states that the word is borrowed from an Italian phrase far fiasco, literally "to make a bottle", figuratively "to fail [in a performance]". This is similar to the informal British English usage of "to bottle out" meaning to "lose one's nerve".
Alternative interpretation of the Italian "far fiasco" as a meaning for failure can be traced to production of glass bottles by glass blowing. A mistake in the process would result in a bottle of irregular shape with protuding or enlarged base which in Italian is termed "fiasco" as opposed to "bottiglia" (bottle)

Now that we have the definition let me as, have you ever experinced a fiasco? Are you sure?
To hear some examples of real fiascos you have to listen to the "This American Life radio show and the program they did called Fiasco! Here is the program description:

Stories of when things go wrong. Really wrong. When you leave the normal realm of human error, fumble, mishap and mistake and enter the territory of really huge breakdowns. Jack Hitt tells the story of a small town production of Peter Pan in which the flying apparatus smacks the actors into the furniture, in which Captain Hook's hook flies off his arm and hits an old woman in the stomach. By the end of the evening, firemen have arrived and all the normal boundaries between audience and actors have completely dissolved. A philosophical inquiry into the nature of such fiascos, perhaps the first ever.

This program is hillarious and will male you appreciate the beauty of a fiasco!

Final Thoughts of the Beheaded










Imagine you are captured and you are about to be beheaded! What would you be thinking just before you were killed? This is proably not a subject you have spent much time thinking about but Robert Olen Butler has.The premise for each story in Robert Olen Butler's new book is disturbing. Severance recalls the last thoughts of those who have been decapitated. St. George, Marie-Antoinette, Medusa, Anne Boyeln Sir Walter Raleigh, the Lady of the Lake ... In Butler's imagining, their last words are poetic and brief, and reveal what is most precious about being alive.

Here is the information to purchases the book:

Book:
Severance
Author: Robert Olen Butler
Publisher: Chronicle Books
Released: 2006

Television and School Performance














Another study has been released showing the negative consequences of children watching TV. This study concludes with the following statement:

We found a strong, independent relationship between measures of exposure to media and poor school performance. The findings in this study add support to the recommendation that parents of young adolescents limit not only the amount but also the content of their child's media exposure. Specifically, our data support the recommendation that parents limit weekday television and video game time to 1 hour and restrict access to adult media by limiting exposure to cable movie channels and R-rated movies and videos.

The Study has been published in Pediatrics:

How to Fight Terrorism

Everyone seems to have an opinion on how to deal with terrorism and now the Catholic Church wants an International Convention on Terrorism. Here is a qoute to give you an idea on the Vatican's view on terrorism:

The international fight against terrorism must include an international binding agreement to search for a non-violent solution, according to the Holy See’s permanent observer to the United Nations.

You can read more about this at the following link:
International Convention on Terrorism

The question is, Can terrorism be fought with non-violent means?

IS THAT SO!



















Yesterday, I had to spend the day and evening doing some required training. This included hours of briefings on subjects such as Chemical Weapons, Biological Weapons, and Nuclear Weapons. During the briefing, I heard a few things that made me say to myself, "Is that so?" During one briefing, a slide was shown that had a list of countries that supposedly have nuclear weapons. The briefer did say the slide was a little out dated. The country listed that stood out to me was Iraq.







Have they possessed a nuclear weapon at any time in history?
I have searched and searched and cannot find a time when Iraq actually possessed a nuclear weapon. I found reports that stated that Iraq wanted them and may have tried to implement certain processes to build one, but nothing was ever completed. Here are some links and quotes from my research:

From the Wikepedia article on Nuclear proliferation:
2.1 Iraq

Iraq had been making efforts to secure a nuclear potential since the 1960s. In the late 1970s a specialised plant, Osiraq, was constructed near Baghdad. The plant was attacked during the Iran-Iraq War and was destroyed by Israeli bombers in June 1981.


From the Wikededia article on Iraq and weapons of mass destruction

In January 2003, United Nations weapons inspectors reported that they had found no indication that Iraq possessed nuclear weapons or an active program. Some former UNSCOM inspectors disagree about whether the United States could know for certain whether or not Iraq had renewed production of weapons of mass destruction. Robert Gallucci said, "If Iraq had [uranium or plutonium], a fair assessment would be they could fabricate a nuclear weapon, and there's no reason for us to assume we'd find out if they had." Similarly, former inspector Jonathan Tucker said, "Nobody really knows what Iraq has. You really can't tell from a satellite image what's going on inside a factory." However, Hans Blix said in late January 2003 that Iraq had "not genuinely accepted U.N. resolutions demanding that it disarm."[43] He claimed there were some materials which had not been accounted for. Since sites had been found which evidenced the destruction of chemical weaponry, UNSCOM was actively working with Iraq on methods to ascertain for certain whether the amounts destroyed matched up with the amounts that Iraq had produced.[

Here is a link to a pdf the summarizes Iraq Nuclear Weapons Program:
Summary of Iraq's Nuclear Weapon Program (PDF)



The second thing mentioned in one of the briefings was that China had sold nuclear weapons to other countries. Again I thought, "Is that so?"
Here is my research:

I can find no evidence at all that China has ever sold a nuclear weapon to another country. They have sold technology and materials that could help others develop a weapon, but never have they sold an actual nuclear weapon: Here are some links:

CRS Report on China's Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction

China and weapons of mass destruction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I could find evidence of one country that has sold many nuclear weapons to other countries. Can anyone guess what country that is?





The United States of America:

The Following is from Wikipedia the article is: Nuclear proliferation
2.4 United States-NATO nuclear weapons sharing

United States-NATO nuclear weapons sharing
The United States provides about 180 tactical B61 nuclear bombs for use by Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey under a NATO nuclear weapons sharing agreement. Some countries believe this violates Articles I and II of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, where the U.S. has committed:
"... not to transfer to any recipient whatsoever nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices or control over such weapons or explosive devices directly, or indirectly...".
The U.S. insists its forces control the weapons and that no transfer of the nuclear bombs or control over them is intended "unless and until a decision were made to go to war, at which the [NPT] treaty would no longer be controlling", so there is no breach of the NPT. However the pilots and other staff of the "non-nuclear" NATO countries practice handling and delivering the U.S. nuclear bombs.

It should not be forgotten that The United States was the first country in the world to successfully develop nuclear weapons, and is the only country to have used them in war against another nation. During the Cold War it conducted over a thousand nuclear tests and developed many long-range weapon delivery systems. It maintains an arsenal of about ten thousand warheads to this day, as well as facilities for their construction and design, though many of the Cold War facilities have since been deactivated and are sites for environmental remediation.

On the morning of August 6, 1945, the United States Army Air Forces dropped the nuclear weapon "Little Boy" on the city of Hiroshima, followed three days later by the detonation of the "Fat Man" bomb over Nagasaki, Japan during World War II in war against the Empire of Japan, part of the Axis Powers alliance.
In estimating the death toll from the attacks, there are several factors that make it difficult to arrive at reliable figures: inadequacies in the records given the confusion of the times, the many victims who died months or years after the bombing as a result of radiation exposure, and the pressure to either exaggerate or minimize the numbers, depending upon political agenda. That said, it is estimated that by December 1945, as many as 140,000 had died in Hiroshima by the bomb and its associated effects.[1][2] In Nagasaki, roughly 74,000 people died of the bomb and its after-effects with the death toll from two bombings around 214,000 people.[3][4] In both cities, the overwhelming majority of the deaths were those of civilians.

I think it is a problem in America that people just state things as fact when they have no idea what they are talking about. The idea of facts and truth have become lost. I will readily agree that my research is not as thorough as it could be, and I am willing to post any evidence that can be sent to me that would help inform me and others on the issues I have written about in this article.

SHAPES OR REFLECTS

Does Music shape culture or simply relect it? I think the honest answer is that it does both. A good example of a song that reflects culture is Myspace by Eleventyseven. Everyone either has a Myspace page or they know someone who does. Check out the lyrics:

Tell me all about yourself
Tell me all about your favorite bands
How they're super-indie-neo-hardcore
Tell me all about your favorite hobbies
And the way you love sunsets
Well who doesn't?

Still I'd like the chance to really see If what you say is true and has integrity
Cause I could know everything about you
And still know nothing at all
I know that it's wrong to form an opinion on only what I see
But in my defense it's really hard to know
When MySpace is the only thing that you ever show

So it seems you've got a lot of friends
How many of them know you
Or even care if you're alive or dead?
When was the last time you were honest Instead of posting blogs of fake emotions?
Still I'd like the chance to really see If what you say is true and has integrity
Cause I could know everything about you
And still know nothing at all
I know that it's wrong to form an opinion on only what I see
But in my defense it's really hard to know
When MySpace is the only thing that you ever show

When you finally resurface to the point of finding purpose
We'll begin to see just who you are
I know that it's wrong to form an opinion on only what I see
But in my defense it's really hard to know
When MySpace is the only thing that you ever show

STUDYING POLITICS

RECENT NEWS:










During a news conference, President Bush said the U.S. remains committed to diplomacy with North Korea. But he also said the U.S. "reserves all options" in dealing with Pyongyang.

Links:

Bush: North Korea Faces 'Serious Repercussions'

World Opinion on North Korea

RECENT NEWS

Estimate: 650,000 Civilians Have Died in Iraq
A new report estimates that violence in Iraq has left over 650,000 civilians dead since March 2003. The report by a team of American and Iraqi public health researchers is by far the highest estimate of war-related deaths in Iraq.

LINKS:
Estimate: 650,000 Civilians Have Died in Iraq

At least 2,660 Iraqi civilians killed in September

After Reading these stories I could only think of the following words:

It's like a pencil with erasers at both ends
I want it all but we're dealing in process
And these activities that you have engaged in
This is the politics of seeing you dance with him
We began with concluding remarks
Break up the pieces and examine the parts
Your words always cut when their cliche
But here's my knife because I came for the buffet

This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That are so tightly fit
A mark beneath the chin (Uh Uh)
I've caught you once again
It's in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs
Saying that but meaning this (Uh Uh)
Using hands for emphasis(Oh Ho)

You'd like to think that you're the best part of me
But I confess there is nothing left of you here (nothing left of you here)
These parallels and silly games
Hide your face and say the name
Say the name (say the name)

This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That are so tightly fit
A mark beneath the chin (Uh Uh)
And I've caught you once again
It's in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs
Saying that but meaning this (Uh Uh)

Your tears for emphasis (Ahhhh)
There's that smile again (there's that smile again)
You fake it and I follow you right in
What a fool again To fall for it each time

This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That are so tightly fit
It's in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs
This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That are so tightly fit
It's in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs


These Words are from the song Studying Politics by Emery
