Blogg, veikindi og fleira

janúar 10, 2005

g er orinn verulega pirraur v a vera veikur. g er binn a vera heima alla helgina og kva v a drfa mig vinnuna morgun, rtt fyrir a g vri raddlaus og hefi hsta upp hlfum lungunum fyrir morgunmat.

En g gafst upp innan klukkutma og kom heim, fr a sofa og er svo binn a hanga netinu og spila Halo2 san . a er svosem gtt, en g nenni essu varla annan dag.


Annars eru hr athyglisverar plingar hj Kristjni um bloggsur. Hann leggur uppfr eirri spurning hvort a allir slendingar su me blogg.

a er skrti hvernig bloggi hefur komist tsku meal sumra hpa slandi undanfarin r. Af mnum vinahp bloggar bara einn fyrir utan mig, Jens (sem mr finnst reyndar skemmtilegasta blogg landinu, hvort sem a er vegna vinttu ea ess a hann s bara svona skemmtilegur). sumum vinahpum virast hins vegar allir blogga.

Einsog g sagi kommentum hj Kristjni lenti g v fyrir einhverjum mnuum a g var hrifinn af tveimur stelpum. Eitt kvldi leiindum, komst g me einfaldri leit blogspot, folk.is og central.is a r voru bar me bloggsur. a ykir mr nokku magna, ar sem hvorki astur n hugaml eirra myndu benda til ess a r hldu t slkri su. A maur geti teki einhverjar tvr random stelpur slandi og fundi a r eru akkra bar me blogg er a mnu mati magna. g efast um a a myndi virka annars staar. Ea kannski var etta bara frnleg tilviljun.

Lkt og Kristjn hef g lka oft tum veri a finna blogg hj tttingjum, gmlu sklaflgum og jafnvel flki, sem g vinn me. a ykir mr alltaf jafn fyndi.


Kottke.org bendir g r varandi a a hlusta betur:

Now before going to a party, I just tell myself to listen with affection to anyone who talks to me, to be in their shoes when they talk, to try to know them without my mind pressing against theirs, or arguing, or changing the subject. No. My attitude is: ‘Tell me more. This person is showing me his soul. It is a little dry and meager and full of grinding talk just now, but presently he will begin to think, not just automatically to talk. He will show his true self. Then he will be wonderfully alive.’

g hef ekki strengt nein ramtaheit, en g er sammla Kottke um a a vri gott ramtaheit a reyna a hlusta betur, srstaklega egar g horfi aftur sustu vikur og mnui. g geri mr grein fyrir a g er ekki nrri v ngu gur v.

(via Andrew Sullivan) - Stratfor, sjlfsttt fyrirtki, sem srhfir sig hermlum birtir essa greiningu standinu rak:

The issue facing the Bush administration is simple. It can continue to fight the war as it has, hoping that a miracle will bring successes in 2005 that didn’t happen in 2004. Alternatively, it can accept the reality that the guerrilla force is now self-sustaining and sufficiently large not to flicker out and face the fact that a U.S. conventional force of less than 150,000 is not likely to suppress the guerrillas. More to the point, it can recognize these facts: 1. The United States cannot re-engineer Iraq because the guerrillas will infiltrate every institution it creates. 2. That the United States by itself lacks the intelligence capabilities to fight an effective counterinsurgency. 3. That exposing U.S. forces to security responsibilities in this environment generates casualties without bringing the United States closer to the goal. 4. That the strain on the U.S. force is undermining its ability to react to opportunities and threats in the rest of the region. And that, therefore, this phase of the Iraq campaign must be halted as soon as possible.

eir mla me v a Bandarkjamenn dragi herli sitt ta jari landsins og leyfi borgarastri a geysa frii!:

After the January elections, there will be a Shiite government in Baghdad. There will be, in all likelihood, civil war between Sunnis and Shia. The United States cannot stop it and cannot be trapped in the middle of it. It needs to withdraw.

Certainly, it would have been nice for the United States if it had been able to dominate Iraq thoroughly. Somewhere between “the U.S. blew it” and “there was never a chance” that possibility is gone. It would have been nice if the United States had never tried to control the situation, because now the United States is going to have to accept a defeat, which will destabilize the region psychologically for a while. But what is is, and the facts speak for themselves.
