Whale sharks ..appear at Gladden Spit in April and May, when large aggregations of cubera snappers spawn.
As fertilized eggs float to the surface in patches like small oil slicks, the whale sharks loll about with
wide open mouths, inhaling their meals. Dr. Will Heyman..working in
Belize ..for 10 years, counted 25 whale sharks at one point in an area
150 feet in diameter...

Whale shark also turn up in April near Donsol, Sorsogon RP,
Also "March & April" in Ningaloo in WA
seems like they all live for that April fling

with non-circular , looks like log spiral..
(circular markings can be done with a rope and a pivot, spirals are problematic)

"..Pog Mahones occupies the premises of a former long serving Ponsonby restaurant -

extensive demolition was required ..so that the original character

ZIPLESS COUP ..the Governing Council declared it was unanimously backing Allawi,
one of its own, for the post of interim Iraqi prime minister.
Not that the Council is charged with that decision;
that brief lies with U.N. envoy Lakhdar Brahimi
..right after the Council resolved to back Allawi,
L. Paul Bremer burst in the room to offer U.S. support. ..
.. the U.N. essentially conceded the move, and pledged to work with the
new prime minister-designate"
[nb NOT "prime minister-elect" as the AusABC miss-spoke]
Allawi's networks supplied 10 Downing Street with the discredited claim that Saddam
could deploy his WMD in 45 minutes. After the war, he peddled the absurd story that
Palestinian terrorist Abu Nidal mentored 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta at the behest of

28May04 Sistani brought peace to Najaf on his terms, and not the U.S.'s. Not a bad position to be in.
..a poll released this week by the Iraq CRSS.. 68%..
across seven Iraqi provinces support Sadr... U.S. battles with Sadr have elevated him to
"a national hero, even in Sunni areas."

Hours after a deal was struck, armed Mahdi army forces are back in Najaf..
By Phillip Robertson
..the day after a peace agreement with the U.S. forces was
announced, armed Mahdi army fighters were occupying all their usual posts.
The men had retrieved their rifles and grenade launchers..and were carefully watching
people move through the city, asking visiting foreigners for their documents.
Failure to produce the correct document can lead to immediate arrest.

Iraqi Blogs...
Islam for me, as a secular leftist, is more than a mere religion
Islam is my cultural heritage that I will protect and maintain until the last moment of my existence.

Islam is the small ornaments in my architecture, the small details of the doors of Al-Mustansiryya school in Baghdad, the arches of the Abbasi palace, the domes of Al-Kathum shrine and the wooden windows of my grandfathers’ courtyard house.

Islam is the small kids playing in the narrow streets of the crowded neighborhoods in Baghdad and Cairo, it is the charming smell of the mosques of Najaf and Karbala, the spicy taste of the Iraqi Dolma, the colorful pigeons flying at the time of dawn in Al-Hamedyyah market in Damascus, the warm palm trees surrounding Shatt Al-Arab in Basra.

Islam is the genius poetry of Quran every morning, the strong voice of Um-Kalthum every evening, the soft sound of Athan every sunrise.

Islam is the shy smile of my woman.

asked if I could have a ‘go’ on his AK 47 when we got to Baghdad. I don’t know why. And I never expected to actually be given the chance. It was the kind of comment that I would normally make on the kind of building site where I often work. Wanting a ‘go’ on someone’s big drill / grinder / power tool.

So I fired an AK. Magazine removed, into wasteland that followed the trajectory of the bullet. It was a big, powerful, wall – breaking, spark – flying, dangerous, noisy, fantastically engineered tool.
Saturday, May 29, 2004So yeah
Finally, we have a president and a prime minister
So "they" selected our president and prime minister in a small meeting,
But they couldn’t even announce the place of their meeting!!!
What a great strong authority!
Hiding in a dark smelly shelter someplace in the "green zone', and announcing fake governments

The Roof...
Hot. It's hot, hot, hot, hot.
The weather is almost stifling now. The air is heavy and dry with heat.
By early noon, it's almost too hot to go outside. For every two hours of
electricity, we have four hours of no electricity in our area- and several
other areas. The problem now is that the generators in many areas are starting
to break down due to constant use and the bad quality of the fuel. It's a big
problem and it promises to grow as the summer progresses.
Iran duped hawks into Iraq war
Julian Borger Guardian Weekly

"It's pretty clear that Iranians had us for breakfast, lunch and dinner," said an
intelligence source in Washington on Monday. "Iranian intelligence has been manipulating
the US for several years through Chalabi."

Larry Johnson, a former senior counter-terrorist official at the state department, said:
"When the story ultimately comes out we'll see that Iran has run one of the most masterful
intelligence operations in history. They persuaded the US and Britain to dispose of its
greatest enemy."

weird science...
Scots Wind Turbines
"Even in Altamont Pass in America, where 7,000 turbines were erected on a migratory route, it was only 0.2 birds per turbine per year. Compare this with the number killed by cats, cars and by flying into windows, or even by global warming..

.. In the 17th century we had 90,000 windmills in Britain. They were a part of life. What we're looking to do is install perhaps 4,000, making 5,000 in total. Roughly half will be onshore and half offshore. If 4,000 turbines sounds a lot, compare Germany, where last year alone they installed more than 2,500MW of capacity and now have 7,000 turbines."

Regarded as non PC, the WMIRG

I maintain that Iles subjects have their own space and power,
but this view may never regain be popularity.
Half Coconut bras are perhaps the most prototypical
absurd WMIRG idea, except when adopted by Polynesian
women themselves, in an ironic reference perhaps?

"I express my deep regret because Reagan died before facing justice for his ugly crime that he committed in 1986 against the Libyan children,"

On Reagan's watch 200,000 Mayans were massacred in Guatemala,
with the connivance of Negroponte, who is still around,
and the assistance of Israeli and Argentinean torture trainers.
US backed terrorists overthrew the Sandinista in Nicaragua.
A hundred thousand died at the hands of death squads in El Salvador
with Reagans blessing.

I left the USA shortly after Reagan came in.
Didnt bother waiting for my green card.
Not going back in this lifetime.
Wash. Times:
"Sedition laws almost surely would be found unconstitutional, currently
-- although things may change after the next terrorist attack in America.
3 of the past 4 CENTCOM commanders

General Joseph Hoar, 1991-1994: "I think that the neo-conservatives had their day, by selling to
the President the need for invasion of Iraq. I think it's now time for a clean sweep and it has
been for some time, in my judgment, to get rid of these people."

General Anthony Zinni, 1997-2000: (believes Wolfowitz and Feith, the undersecretary of defense, have hijacked U.S. foreign policy:) "In the lead-up to the Iraq war and its later conduct, I saw, at
minimum, true dereliction, negligence and irresponsibility;
at worst, lying, incompetence and corruption."

General Tommy Franks, 2000-2003: Doug Feith is "the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth."

General Binford Peay III, CENTCOM commander from 1994-1997, seems to have maintained a studious
silence..chairman..of a..contractor that,.. provides ammunition for the Army's Stryker brigades.

Andrew Wilkie resigned from Australia’s senior intelligence agency, ..in protest over the looming Iraq war. He was the only serving Intelligence Officer from..the US, UK and Australia--to do so, and his dramatic action was reported throughout the world. ..
Wilkie assesses how the case for war was made in Washington, London and Canberra and explains how the three governments routinely skewed, spun and fabricated the relevant intelligence.

Yet more Iranam blogs
"..talk that there will be an "October Surprise," or that the voting machines will refuse to count Democratic votes, or that the Republicans might just cancel the election. Unfortunately there is reason to fear. In 1968, fearing an end of the Vietnam War would mean a Humphrey victory, the Republicans sabotaged the pending peace agreement,
In 1980 there is every reason to believe the Republicans made a campaign deal with the terrorist government of Iran to keep the American hostages -- and keep Carter looking bad -- in exchange for post-election arms shipments..."

watching the GBushII video ad,
which ostensibly attack K for
not supporting body armour,
The images have stealth deltas blue-screened in
in a cinenatic-Lucas kind of fakely realistic way.
The latent message is that K is
against Luke Skywalker and Obi-wan
wheras GII is modern and will
_win_ the (video) game

Resistance = terrorism
