Robots to patrol the Gaza Strip >
Related entries: Robots
Scattered amidst an article on the Gaza Strip are plans for a new kind of border defense. The Israelis are apparently considering turning it into a giant video game, using remote control patrol cars and computerized observation posts that spot and kill attackers all on their own. They even pick out the best weapon to use. Maybe it�s just us, but this seems to be coming kinda close to Skynet territory. Sure, removing more people from harm�s way is a good thing but what about the first farmer who gets blown to bits when the computer thinks the goat he�s leading is a suicide bomb?

Cheney Defends Use Of Four-Letter Word ( "The forceful defense by Cheney came as much of Washington was discussing his outburst on the Senate floor in which a chance encounter with Leahy during a photo session in the usually decorous Senate chamber ended in colorful profanity. The obscenity was published in yesterday's editions of The Washington Post.
President Bush had made his vow to 'change the tone in Washington' a central part of his 2000 campaign, calling bipartisan cooperation 'the challenge of our moment.'
'Our nation must rise above a house divided,' he said in his victory speech in December 2000. 'I know America wants reconciliation and unity. I know Americans want progress. And we will seize this moment and deliver.'
Cheney said yesterday he was in no mood to exchange pleasantries with Leahy because Leahy had 'challenged my integrity' by making charges of cronyism between Cheney and his former firm, Halliburton Co. Leahy on Monday had a conference call to kick off the Democratic National Committee's 'Halliburton Week' focusing on Cheney"

"Chaos" Theory Empowers VA And University Of Florida Researchers To Predict Epileptic Seizures: "Though it may sound counterintuitive, a buildup of organized, harmonious signals is what apparently needs to be fixed to return the brain to its naturally chaotic state.
To predict seizures, Iasemidis, who directs the Gainesville VA's Brain Dynamics Laboratory, and Sackellares look for signs of communication between the site where a patient's seizure begins and elsewhere in the brain. When an increasing number of electrode pairs begin oscillating together during an EEG, it signals a seizure is on its way. "

So it seems pretty clear that Rumsfeld committed a war crime when he personally ordered an Iraqi POW to be held secretly and kept away from the Red Cross. Indeed, some contend this is a black-letter law, open-and-shut case. But we’ll have no investigations, no accountability. As far as our Republican-controlled government is concerned, committing war crimes is no big deal.

And our Attorney General acts in open contempt of Congress, refusing to release memos demanded while providing no justification beyond “I don’t want to.” This is a clear-cut violation of both the letter and spirit of the law. But there will be no subpeona, no investigation. As far as our Republican-controlled Congress is concerned, treating them with contempt is no big deal.

Tom Scully lies to Congress, and coerces a government employee to withhold the true cost of the prescription-drug bill. Clear-cut felonies that provoke not even minor clucking from the Republican-controlled Congress.

Not too long ago, Republicans spent their days screeching about the “rule of law” as they sought to impeach the president over sexual misconduct. Today, there is no level of criminality — not even outright treason (see Valerie Plame) — that can provoke even mild murmurs of rebuke from those very same people.

We once were a nation of laws. For this we were respected by other nations. Now, Republicans in all three branches of our government have worked hard to create an imperial presidency. They are fools.
