Nuke program parts unearthed in Baghdad back yard

David Ensor,

Experts said the documents and pieces Obeidi gave the United States were the critical information and parts to restart a nuclear weapons program, and would have saved Saddam's regime several years and as much as hundreds of millions of dollars for research. David Albright, who was a U.N. nuclear weapons inspector in Iraq in the 1990s, said inspectors "understood that Iraq probably hid centrifuge documents, may have had components, and so it is very important that those items be found." ...Obeidi said he felt unsafe in Iraq after the U.S.-led invasion and that he was getting pressure from different corners of the country. He also said other Iraqi scientists were watching to see if he was safe after he cooperated with the U.S. government. Now that he and his family are safely out of Iraq, Obeidi said he believes other scientists would come forward with other components of Iraq's weapons program.

reprised from a couple of FR topics -- from "The True Believer":
Hatred is the most accessible and comprehensive of all unifying agents. It pulls and whirls the individual away from his own self, makes him oblivious of his weal and future, frees him of jealousies and self-seeking. He becomes an anonymous particle with a craving to fuse and coalesce with his like into one flaming mass... Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a God, but never without belief in a devil... Common hatred unites the most heterogeneous elements. To share a common hatred, with an enemy even, is to infect him with a feeling of kinship, and thus sap his powers of resistance... We have it from Hitler... that the genius of a great leader consists oin concentrating all hatred on a single foe. [pp 85-87]

Emmet Sweeney is convinced that Francis Bacon wrote Shakespeare's plays. Here's an example of his reasoning, or if not his stuff that he finds reasonable. This scares me a little, because Sweeney is also interested in Velikovsky.
The Bacon family anecdote in Merry Wives of Windsor
by Emmet Sweeney
Here a clear reference to a Bacon family anecdote about Sir Nicholas, Francis' father, recounted in his book of jests, the Apophthegms (published 1625), is found in Merry Wives of Windsor. Of course, it's possible the author of the plays heard this one in a tavern. Or Francis Bacon inserted it as a signature.
By these standards of proof (and there are pages of this kind of thing) I could prove that I authored Shakespeare's plays after I invent a time machine in the future. :'D Hey, don't laugh -- my future self visited yesterday and TOLD me this was going to happen.

I wish the Shakespeare bio video were on DVD. In fact, I wonder why A&E hasn't done that. I'm guessing that Shakespeare's family tree, his will, the marks his house made on the house nextdoor, his grave, and the graves of his immediate family were all hoaxed, or at least chosen at random in order to cover the tracks of the guy who really wrote the plays. ;')

Hamlet must be the best known play in the world. We've had a sci-fi Hamlet, a reggae Hamlet; there has doubtless been a naturist Hamlet. But what we haven't had, as far as I'm aware, is an Arabic Hamlet. Until now. The idea may seem strange, but then other cultures are often in a better position to interpret Shakespeare, because in terms of social structure their societies are often closer to the Shakespearean world than our own.

Farewell Mapplethorpe, Hello Shakespeare The NEA, the W. way. By Roger Kimball Under normal circumstances, the White House announcement that the president was seeking a big budget increase for the National Endowment for the Arts might have been grounds for dismay. Pronounce the acronym "NEA," and most people think Robert Mapplethorpe, photographs of crucifixes floating in urine, and performance artists prancing about naked, smeared with chocolate, and skirling about the evils of patriarchy. Thanks, but no thanks. But things have changed, and changed for the better at the NEA. The reason can be summed up in two trochees: Dana Gioia,...

Stratford-upon-Avon, England : The church where England's most celebrated playwright William Shakespeare was baptised and buried is being eaten away by dry rot and an infestation of death watch beetles. Repairs to the crumbling parapet outside the 800-year-old church in Stratford-upon-Avon are almost complete. But other vital restoration work is still ongoing. And it's feared there won't be enough money to finish the job. The cost of restoration is expected to hit the 150,000-pound mark (US$250,000) -50 percent higher than estimated. But friends of the church say falling visitor numbers are making it difficult to raise the funds. Church Trustees...

The words of Maj.-Gen. Raymond T. Odierno of the U.S. 4th Infantry Division may well be the final epitaph for Saddam Hussein. The general said, "He was just caught like a rat." This is what tyrants are: despicable, petty human beings. And when denuded of the ill-gotten power with which they terrorize the weak, the innocent and the defenceless, they are unmasked as slinking cowards. As Saddam's dreadful image filled our television screens, I reached for my copy of the complete works of Shakespeare. It is instinctive to seek the Bard's advice, comfort, insight or wisdom on any situation, for...

A decade ago, the psychiatrist Peter Kramer published a book called Listening to Prozac, which claimed that our understanding of neurochemistry was so advanced that we would soon be able to design- and no doubt to vary- our personalities according to our tastes. Henceforth there would be no more angst. He based his prediction upon the case histories of people given the supposed wonder drug who not merely recovered from depression but emerged with new, improved personalities. Yet the prescription of the drug (and others like it) to millions of people has not noticeably reduced the sum total of human...

By Mike Collett-White LONDON (Reuters) - A 400-year-old painting previously believed to be that of a woman has been found to portray the male patron and friend of William Shakespeare, its owner said on Tuesday. The picture of the Earl of Southampton, featuring a figure with long, black curly hair, pursed red lips, an earring and a slender right hand, has prompted speculation in British media that Shakespeare was gay. "He is wearing perfectly fashionable male attire of the day, but the earring and the hair are effeminate and unusual for the 1590s," the painting's owner Alec Cobbe told Reuters....

Out of the Ashes: The Resurrection of Saddam Hussein Out of the Ashes: The Resurrection of Saddam Hussein
by Andrew Cockburn
Patrick Cockburn

The Clinton administration had left the Bush approach (apart from an offhand remark by the President-elect, hurriedly renounced, to the effect that normal relations with Saddam were possible). Sanctions were maintained as rigorously as ever. In 1993, Vice President Al Gore announced plans to seek a United Nations investigation of war crimes by the Iraqi regime, though nothing further was ever heard of the idea. When details emerged of a scheme by elements of the Iraqi security service, in association with a gang of whisky smugglers, to assassinate ex-president George Bush during a visit to Kuwait in 1993, Clinton fired off twenty-three cruise missiles at Iraqi intelligence headquarters in Baghdad, one of which went astray and killed Leilah Attar, Iraq's leading female artist. In secret, Clinton reaffirmed Bush's directive to the CIA to unseat Saddam. [ p 165 ]]

Here's an older (much older) title they may also enjoy. I got it off the $1 rack at Argos (a local used bookstore that's been there for years, various owners) a couple of years ago, on the strength of Shipman's discussion of Halton Arp. It's well-written, not obtuse at all, and covers Arp because of his then-recently proffered dissident view regarding quasars. Shipman thought Arp's view would become significant; it is, but Arp himself wound up in de facto exile in Europe, unable to find work or even telescope time in the US.

The Linear B Tablets and Mycenaean Social, Political, and Economic Organization
Lesson 25, The Prehistoric Archaeology of the Aegean ^ | Revised: Friday, March 18, 2000 | Trustees of Dartmouth College

Posted on 08/29/2004 8:19:46 PM PDT by SunkenCiv

KO-RE-TE, PO-RO-KO-RE-TE [koreter, prokoreter] -- Such officials are known at both Knossos and Pylos. The titles bear a suspiciously close resemblance to the Latin terms curator and procurator ("guardian" and "manager, imperial officer/governor" respectively). The Linear B evidence suggests that the koreter was a local official in charge of one of the sixteen major administrative units within the Pylian kingdom, and the prokoreter was evidently his deputy.

A Proper Dating of the Linear B Tablets
by Jesse E. Lasken
ESOP 1993 v 22
While there is general agreement that the language of the Linear B tablets was Greek, many words lack clear cut Greek etymologies and have not been satisfactorily translated. This has led to suggestions that the tablets may contain a sort of jargon combining several languages. I will demonstrate the equivalence of the Mycenaean terms ko-re-te, po-ko-re-te, e-qu-ta, and ra-wa-ke-ta [with] the Latin terms curator, procurator, equite, and legatus and discuss other evidence suggesting that Latin was included in the Linear B tablets. I am not disputing that Mycenaean is a Greek tongue; however, the scribes who prepared these tablets were also using, to a limited extent, certain Latin terms and constructions.
Lasken is often wrong, sez Ev Cochrane, and I have to agree in certain cases (I won't give you one example Cochrane cited, it's too far gone :'), but he seems to be onto something here. He claims that some Linear B tablets contain Latin terms, and must date after circa 207 BC. This is not to say that they all must, nor does it take into account the fact that Latin is older than this and the loan vocabulary could have resulted from the extensive commerce, but not so much older that the existence of the Greek Dark Age isn't shown to be imaginary. :') Notice that the Dartmouth paper just mentions a couple of these as suspicious, but offers no critique of it.

Tesla: Man Out of Time Tesla:
Man Out of Time

by Margaret Cheney

"Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point in the universe. This idea is not novel... We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who derives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians... Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic.? If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic - and this we know it is, for certain - then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature."

Amazon seems reluctant to post some of my reviews, even those which are not of political works. Since Amazon seems to employ plenty of single-party-state-leftist twerps, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that they'd want to repress other views.
