Jane of Armies of Liberation looks into the Baath party in Iraq naming Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri as the successor to the throne after the death of Saddam Hussein. Jane notes that al-Douri is number one on the Iraqi government's most wanted list and provides pretty hard core analysis that al-Douri is in Yemen and that the Yemeni government has been pretty heavily involved in supporting the terrorist insurgency in Iraq.
BloodSpite at Techography brings us this great piece from NW Arkansas Law Man, OfficerT who gives us a first hand account of what illegal aliens are doing to our country Immigration Reform

Piglito takes a look at the theory of peak oil
The theory of peak oil has been bandied about for more than 100 years. It was brought up to date by King Hubbard back in the 1950s, when he correctly predicted that peak oil production in the lower 48 states was less than a couple of decades off. Since then others have used his methods to predict--sometimes to the day--when global production would peak, leaving less than 50% in the ground.

Bill Ardolino of the INDC Journal - who is embeded in Iraq - files this report On Patrol With Team Gator
Last Wednesday I rode along on a mounted patrol with members of Bravo Company, Second Assault Amphibious Battalion, aka "Team Gator."
Route Mobile is an essential supply line for the Iraqi Army, US Military and al-Anbar as a whole, as well as a main conduit for civilians and insurgents traveling between Syria, Ramadi, Fallujah and Baghdad, among other stops. It's undoubtedly also one of the most explosive stretches of highway on the planet.
