Death on a California Poppy

Photograph of a Crab Spider eating a Bee on a California Poppy

Crab Spiders have an extremely toxic poison. Toxic enough to ambush and kill a bee that is several times its size—poison so fast acting that the bee doesn’t have a chance to escape the flower before dying…

Shot today in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco at the Strybing Arboretum, one of my favorite places to shoot bugs…

Happy Birthday Abe!

Photograph of the Lincoln Memorial at night

Happy Birthday Abe! You were a hell of a man!

When I had the good fortune to visit Washington D.C. Last year, one of the things that I was sure to see was the Lincoln Memorial. It was awe inspiring and caused me to reflect on what a significant human being he was and how important he was to our country.  Of course I “had” to get pictures of the memorial at night… Sheila was her usual tolerant and patient wife and accompanied me on a night time jaunt through the mall…

I can think of no better time than the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth to post a picture of the Lincoln Memorial.

The answers to my Iraq War Questions of March 2003

Herein I publish answer to my own questions

Sorry, It’s a work in progress. More answers coming soon. Running out of time right now, but wanted to get this posted.

Question:
Does Iraq currently pose a “clear and present danger” to the US?

Answer:
The Bushies sure said it was: In Their Own Words: Iraq’s ‘Imminent’ Threat
Overblown: How Politicians and the Terrorism Industry Inflate National Security Threats, and Why We Believe Them

Question:
Will the world (and the US) be safer without Sadaam running Iraq?

Answer:
From the Washington Post: Spy Agencies Say Iraq War Hurting U.S. Terror Fight
NIE says no

Questions:
Has there been any evidence that Iraq has supported any terrorism?
Has there been any evidence that Iraq has supported any terrorism aimed at the US?

Answers:
From the Washington Post: Iraq’s Alleged Al-Qaeda Ties Were Disputed Before War

Question:
Has there been any proof that Iraq still has WMD?

Answer:
From MSNBC: CIA’s final report: No WMD found in Iraq
From CN: Iraq war wasn’t justified, U.N. weapons experts say

Question:
Can we contain the Iraqi threat *without* war?

Answer
Well, it’s kinda hard to prove what “could have been”, but I think it’s clear that what we did failed:

Answer:

Question:
Who stands to gain financially from war with Iraq?

Answer:
The usual war profiteers

Question:
Do we have a plan for what to do after we topple Sadaam?

Answer:
From the Guardian: US postwar Iraq strategy a mess, Blair was told

Question:
Are we going to be able to put in place a Democratic government in a
country that is populated by hugely different ethnic groups that don’t
like each other, and may lack the societal acumen to make democracy
work?

Answer:
From Foreign Affairs: Was Iraq a Fool’s Errand?
Iraq lacks any of the preconditions academics generally accept as being necessary for democratization to succeed. It has no middle class to speak of independent from the state; oil revenues, the life-line of any Iraqi regime, are notorious for their ability to centralize rather than democratize power; the country has no tradition of limited or responsible government; national identity is weak in the face of rival religious or ethnic loyalties; regional neighbors will do what they can to undermine whatever democratizing movements exist......

Question:
Is the estimated $100 BILLION that we’ll spend on Iraq best spent there?

Answer:
You tell me… From ABC News: Who’s Counting: How Iraq Trillion Could Have Been Spent

Question:
What are the econmic consequences of war, both for the US and the world?

Answer:
Wikipedia is tallying the US:
cost

Question:
Could war cause more terrorism, and further alienate us from
Arab/Muslim people?

Answer:
Like Margie said in Fargo, “You Betcha”
From the Washington Post:
U.S. occupation has become a potent recruiting tool for al Qaeda and other terrorist groups,

Question:
Is it possible that we aren’t going to get what we think we will from
invading Iraq??
