I have little doubt how the disvestment boycott movement will affect this.

It's a disgrace, E.P.

But war usually messes things up something fierce.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

A sickening disgrace, min.

But I do not think this is going to go to armed conflict, mainly because of Israel's extensive nuclear arsenal.

My guess is that while AIPAC can intimidate Kerry, and you can't read much about it in the "media",
my guess is that the on-going boycott effort will not be stopped. It is growing daily, and quite beyond any governments control. The same way that the South Africa boycott was.

You know how this will effect many archaeologists excavating in the area, particularly those affiliated with
religion backed institutions. How this will play out in terms of conferences, conference participation, and publication will be interesting.

You may appreciate this little clip, E.P.

Hi min -

I enjoyed that clip.

Religion combined with nuclear weapons. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, doesn't it?

The sum of all fears.

This is for the next time you hear some neo-con babbling about Benghazi:

You will understand how it started, and how they are trying to paralyze Obama with perjury charges.
