I thought you might want to know. A military expert reveals how science fiction is fast becoming reality on the battlefield, changing not just how wars are fought, but also the politics, economics, laws, and ethics that surround war itself P. W. Singer’s previous two books foretold the rise of private military contractors and the advent of child soldiers— predictions that proved all too accurate. Now, he explores the greatest revolution in military affairs since the atom bomb—the advent of robotic warfare. We are just beginning to see a massive shift in military technology that threatens to make the stuff of I,Robot and the Terminator all too real. More than seven- thousand robotic systems are now in Iraq. Pilots in Nevada are remotely killing terrorists in Afghanistan. Scientists are debating just how smart—and how lethal—to make their current robotic prototypes. And many of the most renowned science fiction authors are secretly consulting for the Pentagon on the next generation. Blending historic evidence with interviews from the field, Singer vividly shows that as these technologies multiply, they will have profound effects on the front lines as well as on the politics back home. Moving humans off the battlefield makes wars easier to start, but more complex to fight. Replacing men with machines may save some lives, but will lower the morale and psychological barriers to killing. The “warrior ethos,” which has long defined soldiers’ identity, will erode, as will the laws of war that have governed military conflict for generations. Paradoxically, these new technologies will also bring war to our doorstep. As other nations and even terrorist organizations start to build or buy their own robotic weapons, the robot revolution could undermine America’s military preeminence. While his analysis is unnerving, there’s an irresistible gee-whiz quality to the innovations Singer uncovers. Wired for War travels from Iraq to see these robots in combat to the latter-day “skunk works” in America’s suburbia, where tomorrow’s technologies of war are quietly being designed. In Singer’s hands, the future of war is as fascinating as it is frightening.

Th... A quick tour of the "Bush to Bush" legacy and a look at the rise of Barack Obama, the president-elect entrusted with resuscitating the American dream ("Bush à Bush", in French, reads as "Bouche à Bouche", "mouth to mouth"). This collection of writings covers the "falts of the hyperpower" during the Bush/Clinton/Bush era, and the 2008 election. It is a stark reminder of how much - and how little - has changed since the fall of the Berlin wall, the LA riots, Katrina, two wars in Iraq and a few recessions (but who's counting?) Visite guidée du legs "Bush à Bush" dont hérite Barack Obama, le président-élu, candidat improbable au sauvetage du rêve américain. Le recueil d'article couvre "les failles de l'hyperpuissance" pendant l'ère Bush/Clinton/Bush jusqu'à l'élection de 2008. C'est un rappel brutal de ce qui a changé - et de ce qui ne change pas - aux Etats-Unis après la chute du mur de Berlin, les émeutes de Los Angeles, Katrina, deux guerres en Irak et quelques récessions.

  • I think this one speaks for itself.

  • I love the unique styling, the cool blimp, the antique feel, the text, and most importantly the message! Awesome ring!

They recruit an American-Chechen to assassinate President Vladimir Putin on American soil following the presidential election in 2000. Saddam Hussein and Ayatollah Kambiz Abbasi hope that the murder of the Russian leader will throw these old enemies back in an arms race against each other and deflect attention from their regimes. "This terrorist tome is a must read, and Douglas De Bono rises above even Tom Clancy and Clive Cusseler in his portrayal of the world today.." - B. Toews. "As usual, the pace and suspense continue until the last page in this tightly plotted, complex thriller tying in with the sinking of the Kursk and the 2000 Presedential election. The descriptions of war torn Grozny are vivid, as are the depictions of real life people and events. All of Douglas De Bono's books have been excellent reads and they deserve the attention of a mainstream publisher."

And he has one advantage over dear Asimov--He thinks in the same manner as the top authority of each genre. Read his horror and you will "hear" a bit of Steven King amongst a great deal of Card. Read his historical novels (emphasis on historical) and you'd swear you'd been there. His religious novels keep you riveted even if you aren't Mormon. Ender's Game is his jewel. Four books that among them have won innumerable awards. These are not books which have crossed genre, these are books that cause other genres to lose readers.

  • Tom Cruise is at his best when he's despicable. And well, Meryl Streep is always at her best. This is a good political drama about complacency, complicity, power and sacrifice.

  • This is a great way to make a statement about how you feel about war! This piece can be worn as a bracelet or a necklace and is 80'' long. It's covered with tons of tiny peace charms on a braided chain.

LeBor does a good job of showing both sides of a history and both sides of a conflict. In a field that is full of polemics, this is an important book which lets you read about people and families on both sides of the Israel-Palestine situation. LeBor follows the stories of six families of Jaffa and how they have been effected and how they themselves have made the history of Israel and Palestine. I'm not a student of Middle-Eastern politics, so my opinion of this is necessarily that of a layman.

  • For those of you against president Bush or just anti Republican, here is an excellent shirt taken from the Star Wars theme. Has the republican elephant holding a light saber with "Start Wars" written across. Silly and savvy.

PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE - Forest Whitaker The buzz has been really great and I like Forest Whitaker. The story is about a newly graduated young doctor, Nicolas from Scotland, who goes to Uganda in 1970s hoping that he can offer his help to the Ugandan people. Instead of serving the poor, he mets the charismatic Uganda dictator Idi Amin and his life is forever changed. I have decided that Forest Whitaker has an Oscar worthy performance as 'Idi Amin Dada. It is almost possible to forget that he is acting. The movie has a documentary visual style that captures the energy and exuberance of a young nation in the throes of optimism and works it into a foreboding frenzy. A must see!! I highly recommend.

The futility and irony of the war in the trenches in WWI is shown as a unit commander in the French army must deal with the mutiny of his men and a glory-seeking general after part of his force falls back under fire in an impossible attack. One of the greatest films ever and one of the greatest anti-war films ever made. Very relevant... especially today.

Thomas E. Ricks, the Pentagon correspondent for the Washington Post and the author of the acclaimed account of Marine Corps boot camp, Making the Corps, has written a thorough and devastating history of the war in Iraq from the planning stages through the continued insurgency in early 2006, and he does not shy away from naming those he finds responsible. Incredibly good and definitive analysis on the war in Iraq from many unheard voices. A must-read!

  • Worth seeing just for the action scenes (a good chunk of the movie)
