Staff Sgt. Christopher Fessenden is on duty in Afghanistan now after tours with the Army in Iraq. He has traveled with standard-issue equipment -- weapons, helmet, uniform, boots and so forth -- plus a radio-controlled model truck his brother Ernie sent.
The truck is not a toy to him. He says it just saved six soldiers' lives.

"Diary is a highly personal and experimental film that expresses the subjective experience of my work, and was made as an attempt to locate myself after ten years of reporting. It's a kaleidoscope of images that link our western reality to the seemingly distant worlds we see in the media." - Tim Hetherington, British photojournalist and Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker, who was killed on April 20, 2011 in Libya.

Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul is a beautifully shot film that follows the lives of a group of young skateboarders in Afghanistan. Operating against the backdrop of war and bleak prospects, the Skateistan charity project is the world's first co-educational skateboarding school, where a team of international volunteers work with girls and boys between the ages of 5 and 17, an age group largely untouched by other aid programmes.

The US military has for years been working on environmentally-friendly projects, from cleaning lead from ranges, to powering bases with solar power.
Now the Navy is testing biofuel in the F/A-18.
Great. An army of tree-huggers.

We want to send you hundreds of feet under the ocean, arm you with nuclear and non-nuke weapons, put you at great risk of harm, and keep you underwater for weeks at a time. But there is a catch...

It has been said that Gandhi taught Martin Luther King Jr. something along the lines of, "To come to a resolve between fighting oppositions, you must offer each side a way to save face while solving the problem."
I may be retarded, but with "Egyptian border guards [taking] no action," Palestinians moving freely across the border, getting their needs, and Israel saying, "Hey, 'according to the signed agreements,' it's not on us," could an open Gaza mean a new page in, whadda ya call it... PEACE?!?

The only thing that seems to be standing in the way of a preemptive attack on Iran's nuclear facilities is unusual-but-sensible foot-dragging by the U.S. military. It seems likely that the senior military leadership has told the president and Cheney: This time let us brief you on what to expect on Day 2, on Week 4, on Month 6 -- and on the many serious things Iran can do to Israel, and to us in Iraq and elsewhere.
