29-01-2004 23:18Saw a lot of disagreement on whether to support the armed resistance in Iraq or not, but the social resistance is more important, sustainable and just as damaging to the ambitions of the occupation as the armed groups. US Soldiers coming home in bodybags by the dozen hasnt shaken US resolve or base-building here in Iraq at all. the occupaiton is expanding and refreshing itself (massive troop rotation expected in a few months, tens of thousands of would be defectors are being brought back and a new fresh round being swooped in).

29-01-2004 20:15An analysis of open, transparent consensus decision making and a proposal for the 2004 ESF decision making process. This is a constructive proposal to try and make the ESF truly open, but also to make it work in practice.
29-01-2004 20:14An excellent analysis of the Hutton whitewash.

29-01-2004 19:46Being an information security specialist, the recent events revolving around Pakistan’s nuclear program do not surprise me.
