For now

It was another lovely Sunday, and I basically took the day off from blogging (except, of course, for this post).

For now, I've turned off anonymous commenting. That was actually my policy early on; I required registration with Blogger in order to post a comment here. It's really not all that difficult a process to register (as those of you who haven't already done so will see if you take a look), although I apologize for the inconvenience.

See you tomorrow!

Neo: I can see why you did that. Those trolls were out of control.

Spanky: I didn't have a blog before, but now I seem to

(And apparently having a little formatting trouble already.)

Stop by.

For now, I'm watching a Fox News Special about Rumsfield, Why He Fights.

Link Wrote some more, as I'm still watching it.

It feels very weird, to see this as current events and as history at the same time. There's like this binocular vision, slightly out of phase.

Nobody got what they wanted in Iraq, it was a compromise in force levels. Compromises are notoriously bad in wars.

You know what that reminds me of? It reminds me of the dual rotating generalship of Roman consulships. I can't seem to remember whether it was the 2nd Punic Wars or Spartacus or something else, but there were two consul armies and they were rotating command each day. One day, one consul would be in command, the next day, someone else.

So it's like, we march for one day because one consul wants to attack, then we stop cause the other consul wants to defend this terrain, and it's like, ridiculous.

Rumsfield was talking about the uniformity of thought of the pentagon bureacracy, not a problem with the men of women serving, but all too often the bureacratic excesses inflicted upon them, that is the problem. September 10.

Then September 11 morning, a dinner, Rumsfield was talking about Pearl Harbor and 'Surprise'. Before the planes was on CNN>

For the record I first started posting here as hgwells, then switched to my real name.

I'm ambivalent about using my name. I may set up a different Blogger identity later.

I understand neo's decision.

I don't know if this'll stop the determined troll, but it'll keep spambot's out, that's for sure.

Jack, you can always come up with a pseudo-name using your initials. J T.

That way you can adhere to your identity, yet uphold some privacy.
