Chomsky Talks...

The Nobel Peace Prize, of course, is not concerned solely with reducing the threat of terminal nuclear war, but rather with war generally, and preparation for war. In this regard, the selection of Obama raised more than a few eyebrows, not least in Iran, surrounded by US occupying armies.

US military expenditures almost match the rest of the world combined, and the US military is far more advanced technologically. Nonpartisan budget and security monitors report that the Obama administration's request for $538 billion for the Defense Department in fiscal 2010 and its stated intention to maintain a high level of funding in the coming years put the president on track to spend more on defense, in real dollars, than any other president has in one term of office since World War II.

Well worth reading the entire article.

34 C in the shade

Sunny, gorgeous weather today in Bangkok for swimming! Being in the pool was so refreshing and energizing. If we ever leave Thailand, I'll know I'll miss the pools and the massage parlors...among other things.

Meanwhile we've got the first BIG trip of the year planned out(there will be several). One word for you: Malaysia!!!

Andrei and Peppe at the pool...

What a crazy couple of days...Alarm didn't work...Raced to school...Thank GOD for motorcycle taxis! JUST made it! Raced back home...there, one thing after the other...Literally crashed last night at 8pm right after the 2 pumpkins were asleep. Then again..this full on trottle is a great post pregnancy exercise.

We're on holiday next week, so we should be able to kick back a bit and chill. Yeaah.
