On Saturday, a gang of about 400 kids had a "street party" (note the red flags) in an area of Gothenburg called �rgryte. Their mission is to "reclaim the city" from the rich people. It is a new name of an old idea: egalitarianism. Look what happened during the summer of 2001.

The group "Reclaim the Streets" is listed by FBI as a "threat of terrorism to the United States."

The race for governor of California is getting "dirty". An interview ("Oui" magazine, August, 1977) with Arnold Schwarzenegger is the featured document on the Smoking Gun web site. You could follow the race on the California Insider Weblog and the Kausfiles.

From SF Gate: "A group calling itself "the Revolutionary Cells" has issued a statement claiming responsibility for two explosions Thursday at Chiron Corp. headquarters in Emeryville."

How convenient that an animal "rights" group is taking the name "revolutionary cells." They are really showing their true (blood red) colors...

Daniel Pipes has been recess appointed to the board of the U.S. Institute of Peace.

Marwan al-Kabalan, research student at the University of Manchester, is calling Daniel Pipes a "warmonger." I say: Daniel Pipes, more power to you!

I am worried to hear that the International Atomic Energy Agency has found enriched uranium at a nuclear plant near Tehran.

Jane's Defense Weekly reports that Iran has been importing uranium from communist China since 1991 and that "Western intelligence officials said the presence of metallic uranium is proof of Iran's military nuclear intention as metallic uranium is not normally used in commercial atomic programmes."

Iran has placed an order ($800 million) with a Russian company called AtomStroiExport, for the construction of the Bushehr nuclear power plant. So, isn't a bit strange that Russia and China are involved in a talk regarding North Korea's nuclear program?

Roy Moore, Chief Justice of the state of Alabama, wants to keep a stone monument of the Ten Commandments at the Judicial building. Doesn't he understand that Church and State should be separated? The dogmatic rules of the Ten Commandments have nothing to do with the Constitution and U.S. law. How about giving Roy Moore the monument as a "farewell" gift? He could place it on his own property...

The mullahs in Iran have supported terrorists for a long time. It is time to catch up on old cases, e.g., the former Iranian ambassador, Hadi Soleimanpour, and his involvement regarding the bomb attack of a Jewish community centre (Asociaci�n Mutual Israelita Argentina) in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1994. For more information, read Walter Goobar's book, El Tercer Atentado.

Read the article, 'Smart-bomb' technology moving to China. I have been working with raw materials for many years and therefore interested in this kind of news story. I think the information in the article should be "hot stuff" to the Bush administration.

Seven of spades (#29) - Mahmud Dhiyab al-Ahmad. The former Iraqi Minister of Interior had already been reported as captured... Maybe it was his double they caught a month ago?!

To my readers in California: Will you vote for Arnold Schwarzenegger? In one way it is a testimony on how bad the situation is in the state of California, if you can't get worthy candidates [via California Insider Weblog] to vote on and it gives the opportunity for a guy like Arnold to show up on the scene.

I have been fascinated by odd characters in politics for some time. Theoretically I would probably vote for a guy like Jesse "the body" Ventura, but I must say that I don't think that a third party candidate is really an option. A "reform" of politics is well needed, but it will take a long time and it should be based on sound ideas in metaphysics, epistemology and ethics. For an example of strange ideas floating around, check out the latest campaign by the "hippies of the right." The only way to go, according to my view, is to come up with a good Republican candidate. [Via BusinessPundit.] I thought that Steve Forbes was a pretty good choice in 1996, but later on he joined the "faith-based" crowd of the religious right.

So, maybe Arnold is the way to go? I don't think so, not after reading a profile on BBC news. Here is an excerpt from the article, Schwarzenegger and the American dream:

"Recently he said: "In the beginning I was selfish. It was all about, 'How do I build Arnold? How can I win the most Mr Universe and Mr Olympic contests? How can I get into the movies and get into business?' "I was thinking about myself... As I've grew up, got older, maybe wiser, I think your life is judged not by how much you have taken but by how much you give back.""

To me, he sounds like a compassionate conservative with altruistic ideals. What do you think?

For an interesting comparison between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mike Mentzer, read John Little's article, A Question Of Character: The Objectivist Versus The Machiavellian.

Will the "hawks" have a stronger position if Powell "'prepares to quit'"? Read Mark Da Cunha's post, Powell's Paper Tiger Show Will Not Run a Second Season.

This is not an actual update of the "Iraqi Most Wanted" list, but I guess that the United States Central Command will publish a news release in the near future...
