The Guardian: The Observer view on the future of Israel and Palestine | Observer editorial

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 23:10:12 GMT
 Feed: The Guardian | Search phrase: afghanistan |
Unless both sides bend, there can be no resolution. Imaginative leadership is essentialIt has long been considered axiomatic, at least on Europe's political left, that Palestine lies at the heart of the Arab-Israeli conflict and that lasting peace in the Middle East depends, first and foremost, on resolution of this decades-old struggle. In recent years, such thinking has been overtaken by events. The problem has been sidelined. Yet as the region approaches the 50th anniversary of the six-day war that left Palestinian land under permanent occupation, and as hundreds of Palestinian prisoners begin their third week on hunger strike in Israeli jails, fears of a new intifada are growing.

The Guardian: Presenting the Trump doctrine: 'forever war'

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 11:00:35 GMT
 Feed: The Guardian | Search phrase: afghanistan |
Trump's enthusiasm for war is the logical endpoint of a grim process started years ago by his predecessors in the White HouseMoab sounds more like an incestuous, war-torn biblical kingdom than the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast, AKA "the mother of all bombs". Still, give Donald Trump credit. Only the really, really big bombs, whether North Korean nukes or those 21,600 pounds of Moab, truly get his attention. He wasn't even involved in the decision to drop the largest non-nuclear bomb in the US arsenal for the first time in war, but his beloved generals – "we have the best military people on Earth" – already know the man they work for, and the bigger, flashier, more explosive, and winninger, the better.

A tool for them long posts ..
18.11 - 2007

tn_codificator_510px.jpg

I wrote this tool some months ago while developing on the xPresso publishing system (NO), and has done some rewriting this week to implement further functionality.

The Codificator now provides:
- automatic code wrapping in DC board format
- conversion of regular HTML-formatted text to DC board formatted text
- link extraction from HTML to DC board format
- auto fetch of webpages, with on-select conversion of content to DC board format.

It won't boil your coffee or knit you a warm sweater for the winter, but it may help you to be more efficient when you're online discussing politics.
