What's On Tonight

I've spent years looking for Thaivox. Now I've found them. Russian techno-rock similar to Deadушки.Also Herb Alpert Rewhipped, the only reason I took trumpet lessons in the early 1970s.

Iranian Nuclear Morass Deepens

There are times when I wonder if the Iranian apocolyptic fanatics are in cahoots with our own.The Guardian provides additional fodder for this line of thought with this article. Nuclear No also has an interesting commentary from an anonymous Russian scientist, Mayak, detailing some hitherto unknown concerns about the Iranians including numerous nuclear accidents and shortcomings in the Russian export control area. Not comforting reading. ArmsControlWonk explains why we won't nuke Iran. This is because we have so many other bombs of various kinds we won't need to use nukes. Now I will sleep better...not.

War in Iraq seems to grow ever closer. The British military are holding a meeting to discuss the ramifications of an event they describe as inevitable.The Americans are looking to test the largest open air chemical explosion ever in Nevada in June.Whether this represents squeamishness over the use of nukes or is just a simulation of a 14 kiloton a-bomb remains to be seen. The Iranians for their part just launched a new missile that will do little to calm things. Afrika Bambaataa's "World Destruction" Kah boom Kah boom seems even more relevant than it was 22 years ago.
