Star Wars

Forced to take time off of training + heavy training the last two days = sore all over.


Teh Wife seems to share my opinion about dancing on Friday. In short: blah, not really looking forward to it.

Article about Israel and Iran: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1969/12/the-point-of-no-return/8186/ I thought, with the reelection of Bush, that we would eventually go to war with Iran. I am quite glad that I was wrong, but wasn't aware that Bush was opposed to the use of force against Iran during his administration, apparently, because he was bogged down in two other wars and though Iran was not yet an immediate threat. I very much agree with Netenyahu, who is quoted in the article as saying, "You don’t want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs. When the wide-eyed believer gets hold of the reins of power and the weapons of mass death, then the world should start worrying, and that’s what is happening in Iran." Nuclear proliferation is everybody's problem. I really should get back in touch with the people I know who are into this sort of thing...

Google is fiddling around with my mail again. Bastards. I can't even find the thing that lets you fiddle with the "skin". Bastards. This new look makes me angry. I want to destroy it with a sword. They're also destroying net neutrality.

I really haven't been studying for that exam. Well, nuts. I just don't feel like it at the end of the day. This will make escape more difficult. Classes start at the end of the month, may not allow for much extracurricular studying.

Didn't have the smell last night, so we'll ignore it for now.

Teh Wife doing swapadvd.com thing to get rid of some old films.

Still bloody hot. Done with Chekhov. Rereading one of the earlier stories because it's been a while since I've read the stuff. Frig, I have to go outside and mail those DVDs. Just looked at calendar: last month was bloody hot.

Gaming tonight after church. In air conditioning. This will be decent. I wouldn't mind skipping training for it, but I am not skipping training for it. I'm skipping training for a baseball game tomorrow and dancing on Friday. Bleh.

Time to mail stuff and eat lunch.

 Surely Russia and China would be lining up behind the US. They're not exactlyl fans of Islamic fundies either so why are they fairly relaxed about the Iranian nuclear programme?

That's a very good question. by gzt (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Aug 12, 2010 at 10:12:43 AM EST
Russia supposedly supports Iran's nuclear program (as in, for nuclear power) and is supporting of Iran to counterbalance US and Turkic influence in the region, but they voted for sanctions against Iran this year because they did not halt uranium enrichment. Russia is also increasing its ties with Israel, making it all somewhat complicated. I don't really know much about China except that they're allied politically.
