“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

The Humam Khalil Abu Mulal al-Balawi Video

The Jordanian doctor who killed seven CIA employees in a suicide attack in Afghanistan said in video clips broadcast posthumously Saturday that all jihadists must attack US targets to avenge the death of Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud.

Footage showed Humam Khalil Abu Mulal al-Balawi - whom the CIA had cultivated as an asset against al-Qaida - sitting with Mehsud's successor in an undisclosed location. It essentially confirmed the Pakistani Taliban's claim of responsibility for one of the worst attacks in CIA history, though a senior militant told The Associated Press that al-Qaida and Afghan insurgents played roles, too

The BBC is running a longer version


  1. We got no idea what we're fucking with.

    Nation being a mass of People, not a Geographical location.

  4. See and I always thought you had better intuition than that, WiO. Tsk Tsk

    I don't live in a single wide, I'm to poor. I live in a 40 ft gooseneck trailer and because at the moment I don't have anything to pull it with, it's parked in my cousin’s, cousin’s driveway. I can’t afford to get the septic tank emptied every week, so I run a discharge hose long enough to reach the creak behind the house and let it slowly seep out. Don’t worry no one notices it. I’m not 5’10” I’m 5’8” with green eyes and short dark brown hair…chocolate macaroon to be exact. I’m about one third of the weight you suggest because I like to purge after I eat. It’s just a habit I got into a ways back, it beats cutting. My teeth are slightly rotted from all the myth I did as a teenager and I’m pretty sure the yellowing in my nails is caused by all the smoking I do and not just fungus. My hobbies are swimming, mostly in the creak behind the house. And I hate flower prints. Although, tattooing is not my hobby, I do have four of them. And work? Why would you think that I worked? Bwahahahaha.

  9. Weather update from sunny Florida:

    We just climbed above freezing to 33 deg with 25 deg windchill.

  10. Sunny and 28 here and Florida might get some flurries.

  11. Is it important that you know? If Deuce is right will it stop all this bickering back and forth?

  12. It's one thing to get off subject and have some fun after a long day, with a glass of wine but this has got to stop. And don't give me the, collateral damage, bullshit because that's getting old, too.

    And sometimes you're unlucky, and "she's" a teen impersonator undercover cop.

  29. Or, sometimes you reach the "epitome" of unluckiness, and "she's" Doug, or God help us, even worse, she's "Bob" and she rites you potry.

    Otherwise he sounds like some Hollywood Joo.

  79. Rufus, I'll go out of my way, and teach you a couple things, bout potree.

    "And the sea"

    You see, that's what people like, the thought of the sea, nature, something other than the madness of the killing of everyday, which we read about all too much.

    You can make it better, you can speak, or say, of the sway of the sea, or maybe even the sway of human hips, and the sway of human lips.

    That always gets 'em.

    If you put the sway of the sea, the sway of human hips, and human lips together, you've got a winner.

    You can make some bucks on this.

    Or, you might, possibly, sway a woman's mind, even far away.

  80. Bob has a problem.

    How I'll get back to Ohio, I don't know.

    Here's a couple of solutions...just don't pack a wifi laptop...and take your time, Bobbo.


  81. Heh, well we've actually talked about taking Amtrak. It goes from Spokane, middle of the night, then cross Montana, the Dakotas to Chicago, then you switch, and head south. We've done this before, when the mother in law was living there.

    She won't take a plane, so that's out.

    Trouble is, we need a car when we get back there, so, we drive back.

    Yours, bobhobo

  82. This is far more important than bob's bullshit about MLD

    Devaluation ups stakes in Venezuela election year

    By Frank Jack Daniel and Eyanir Chinea

    CARACAS, Jan 9 (Reuters) - Venezuelans rushed to the shops on Saturday, fearful of price rises after a currency devaluation that will let President Hugo Chavez boost government spending ahead of an election but feeds opposition charges of economic mismanagement.

    In a bid to jump-start the recession-hit economy of South America's top oil exporter, Chavez on Friday announced a dual system for the fixed rate bolivar.

    It devalues the currency to 4.3 and 2.6 against the dollar, from a rate of 2.15 per dollar in place since 2005, giving the better rate for basic goods in an attempt to limit the impact of the measure on consumer prices.

    The opposition seized on fears that prices for imported goods will double as shoppers formed lines of more than a hundred people outside some stores in the capital Caracas.

    "It was a Black Friday, tinted red," said sales executive Diana Sevillana in reference to the crimson color of Chavez's socialist party. She stood in a line of 30 people outside an electrical goods store in a middle class neighborhood.
