Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Let Slip the Dogs of War …

So it’s begun. Early Thursday morning (Iraqi time) the assault on Iraq began, with F117 stealth bombers, tomahawk cruise missiles, F18 strike fighters …

I pray that their victory will be swift, and that casualties (on both sides) will be light.

Meanwhile, the 82nd Airborne has launched a massive operation in southern Afghanistan. Apparently, they believe that Osama Bin Laden is to be found in the mountains near Kandahar.

May they, too, be successful in their objectives.
