I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy — but that could change.

What is Hamas up to?

I have seen a lot of army training. Different countries, cultures and doctrines. But I have never seen anything like that. What is it that they could be preparing for?

Begging for a meal from UNRWA or another EU handout? Showing how hungry they are?

A photo shoot of one of those Pals ' "massacres"?

Surrendering to IDF? Notice - the shirts are off - just as Israelis want them to - to make sure they are not packing a couple of kilos of explosives on their belt.

What else could it be?

Newly recruited members of Hamas' Palestinian National Security personnel go through their morning training routine at their Gaza city base, Thursday Jan. 17, 2008.

Silicone Valley, United States
I am a cantankerous man living and working in the Silicon Valley where reading books is an abomination that is virtually unheard of, frowned upon and may be detrimental to one's career. I avoid censure by never conceding that I ever read or owned a book in my life. If anyone accidentally glimpses my scant proficiency in any subject matter, I immediately accredit it to having glanced at DrudgeReport that day.
