I’ve not commented much on the ‘war on terror’ that is being waged at present. Recent announcements by the US government are concerning though.

The Pentagon says:

“We’re at war with al-Qa’ida. If we find an enemy combatant, we should be able to use military forces to take military action against them.”

“…assassinations are part of “preparation of the battlefield” in the open-ended war on terror.”

It seems that the American Defense Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, isn’t happy about the amount of time it takes the CIA to act on these matters. He believes the military could act more swiftly and efficiently.

He seems quite happy that this type of covert operation flounts international laws and treaties left, right and center. But then, who is capable of putting the good ole’ US of A in it’s place?

Ohhh and forgot to say. Finished reading American Tabloid. Very very good book. It gripped me without me realising it, and a late stint last night finished it off. Always a sign, for me anyway, of a good book. One you literally can’t put down.

If you enjoy American conspiracies, Mafia stories, FBI/CIA coverups, and JFK, or anything to do with that Hoover dominated time, I thoroughly recommend it. In fact even if you don’t know that much about that period of American history I would still recommend it, more so in fact, as you’ll never be really sure how much of it is fiction.

Modern cars. The cars we have today are advanced, they have airbags, power steering, ABS, EDC, FDA, CIA and FBI (well maybe not quite all those…) yet they don’t seem to have any indicators.

You may be familiar with this particular invention. It started as a little flag that popped out from the side of the car and signalled your intention to move either left or right (depending which side the flag was on..). They moved on to become orange blinking lights. However it seems that the latest cars don’t have any, so please be aware that the next time you pull out 3 feet in front of me, when I’m doing 70 mph on the motorway, that I am not, despite popular belief, PSYCHIC!!!
