War continues. Might equals right! Do unto Baghdad what Baghdad did unto Kuwait.

People gawk at shock and awe. Massive bombing of a city is now a fully legitimized tactic of modern war. My guess is the next Stalin wanna will adobt the shock and awe campaign style...but won't just target Versaille-like palaces filled with priceless art.

The other scary news: Looks like potato blight is back! Apparently, it never went away, but a new form of the disease is making it into the crops. Late blight also seems to have a taste for tomatos as well as taters. Add this to climate change. We might have tough time feeding our 6 billion world population.
