I couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas present-

If there were not $45trillion of Western citizens’ money at stake, this would be the funniest moment in world history. What a bunch of buffoons. Not since Neville Chamberlain tugged a Claridge’s luncheon bill from his pocket and flourished it on the steps of the aircraft that brought him back from Munich has a worthless scrap of paper been so audaciously hyped. There was one good moment at Copenhagen, though: some seriously professional truncheon work by Danish Plod on the smellies. Otherwise, this event is strictly for Hans Christian Andersen.

A little excerpt from Brand X:

Awesome, Chris? Awesome? I’m not so sure about that. Methinks this is another one of those occasions — it happens every time Dylan releases a new record, if you are keeping tabs — where rock critics let their love of the man and his back catalog cloud their judgments on his present-day output.

You either stick with Dylan or you’re a fair weather fan. I’ve always stuck with Dylan thru good times and bad.

“Modern Times” #1 at age 65. And another #1 two later with “Together Through Life”.

Whooaaa, Nellie. The U.S. remains silent. Stratfor’s Iranian source says the IRCG troops have withdrawn, but the Iraq National Security Council claims the Iranian troops have remained in country.

What’s going on here? A intentional provocation perhaps? Mind games?

Maliki is sending out a pretty strong message to Iran.

Following an emergency meeting held Dec. 18 in response to an Iranian incursion and occupation of an oil well in southern Iraq, the Iraqi National Security Council said that Iran has violated Iraq’s territorial integrity and called on the Iranian government to withdraw its forces. Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said the Iranian ambassador in Baghdad had been summoned and that diplomatic steps were being taken to resolve the situation.
