micah holmquist's irregular thoughts and links
Welcome to the musings and notes of a Cadillac, Michigan based writer named Micah Holmquist, who is bothered by his own sarcasm.
Please send him email at email@example.com.
Holmquist's full archives are listed here.
Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)
Blogs that for one reason or another Holmquist would like to read on at least something of a regular basis (always in development)

Right Wing News proprietor John Hawkins asks:
…how could anyone who knows about 9/11, the 'War on Terrorism', the Bush Doctrine, & the 'Axis of Evil', think that [invading] Zimbabwe should make just as must sense as [invading] Iraq in Bush's eyes?Let’s see…
Both countries are run by thugs who brutalize their own people. Both countries could probably attack the United States on some level if they wanted to. No convincing evidence has been made public that either country has any intention of attacking the U.S. now or even wants to attack the U.S. in the abstract. No convincing evidence has been made public that either country has tried to attack the U.S. in recent memory.
It seems to me that the two countries are fairly similar in this regard. I would be interested in reading someone explain why Iraq is a greater threat to the U.S. than Iraq is, if there answer was not based on arguments that the U.S. can and/or should dominate the world, geographic location, misunderstandings about religion and/or race.
