Link to "The Incredible Coming of Al Cohol," a cautionary tale about alcohol addiction produced by the Canadian government for Inuit (Eskimo) communities in the Northwest Territories. Stars a recovering drunk space alien superhero. Sure would like to be a fly on the wall in *his* 12-step group. (Thanks Ethan Persoff)

Syria's First Lady Wants New Conversation With West

Educated Assad Works With Charities, Takes Children to School

Feb. 6, 2007 — - Her husband, the president of Syria, is crazy about her. Asma Akhras Al-Assad is the first lady of Syria.

Her Syrian title is "al akilatu al rais" -- simply translated to "the president's wife." But make no mistake, this beautiful, athletic woman is a force for her country's future.

"Good Morning America" anchor Diane Sawyer first saw her at one of her charity projects called Basma, which means "smile" in Arabic. The charity supports a cancer center.

Prof. Martin van Creveld on the US and the Middle East]

Below is a powerful piece, by a distinguished author.  It is from the/
New Perspectives Quarterly/, the website of which is*


[Martin van Creveld, a professor at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, is
considered one of the world’s most eminent experts on military history
and strategy. His books include/ The Sword and the Olive: A Critical
History of the Israeli Defense Force/ (1998) and his widely influential/
The Transformation of War/ (1991). Van Creveld famously wrote that the
United States invasion of Iraq was “the most foolish war since Emperor
Augustus in 9b.c. sent his legions into Germany and lost them.”]

   Jerusalem — Now that the American people have recognized that the
war in Iraq is hopeless, what comes next? The answer is, the US is going
to cut its losses and withdraw.

   Withdrawing 140,000 soldiers with all their equipment is a very
complex operation. In 1945 and 1973, the US simply evacuated its troops,
leaving most of its equipment to its West European and South Vietnamese
protégés respectively.
