Dr Hjkl on the Command Line

The first time I used vi was in a college programming course. It was the default editor on the computer lab's UNIX systems we used to compile our assignments. I remember when our professor first introduced vi and explained that you used the hjkl keys to move your cursor around instead of the arrow keys.

How to mount an LVM partition on Linux

LXer - Thu, 2015-05-21 21:01
LVM is a logical volume management tool which allows you to manage disk space using the notion of logical volumes and volume groups. The biggest benefit of using LVM over classic partitions is the flexibility in allocating storage for users and applications without being constrained by the size of individual physical disks.

The Greatest Generation

Lew Rockwell Blog - Thu, 2015-05-21 20:08

of liars is in the military. A new report titled Lying to Ourselves: Dishonesty in the Army Profession has just been published. Here is the report’s brief synopsis:

Untruthfulness is surprisingly common in the U.S. military even though members of the profession are loath to admit it. Further, much of the deception and dishonesty that occurs in the profession of arms is actually encouraged and sanctioned by the military institution. The end result is a profession whose members often hold and propagate a false sense of integrity that prevents the profession from addressing—or even acknowledging—the duplicity and deceit throughout the formation. It takes remarkable courage and candor for leaders to admit the gritty shortcomings and embarrassing frailties of the military as an organization in order to better the military as a profession. Such a discussion, however, is both essential and necessary for the health of the military profession.

Someone writes wondering why I am so relentless in harping on the failings of soldiers. As long as men and women are called heroes just for being in the military, as long as members of the military are held up as role models, and as long as military personnel are practically worshiped on national holidays, I will keep writing what I do.

Iraq Interventionists Blame CIA for the Iraq War

Lew Rockwell Blog - Thu, 2015-05-21 18:30

A whole bunch of Republican and Democrat officeholders who voted for and/or promoted and/or started the Iraq War are today trying to avoid their responsibility for that evil U.S. aggression. They are blaming flawed intelligence. This group of major league liars includes both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush. They deserve our contempt for promoting the BIG LIE and attempting to rewrite recent history in complete and utter disregard for the American public who they evidently think deserves nothing better than lies.

The Downing Street Memos are alone sufficient to refute their claims. They are here, and here is a quote:

“C reported on his recent talks in Washington. There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy. The NSC had no patience with the UN route, and no enthusiasm for publishing material on the Iraqi regime’s record. There was little discussion in Washington of the aftermath after military action.”

This web site states

“There is now in the public record a large body of evidence that vividly illustrates:

Bush’s long-standing intent to invade Iraq
Bush’s willingness to provoke Saddam (in a variety of ways) into providing a pretext for war
The fact that the war effectively began with an air campaign nearly a year before the March 2003 invasion and months before Congressional approval for the use of force
The administration’s widespread effort to crush dissent and manipulate information that would counter its justification for war
The lack of planning for the war’s aftermath and a fundamental lack of understanding of the Iraqi society”

The flawed intelligence was produced as part of a massive propaganda campaign that was obvious to many observers at the time. Cheney and Rumsfeld even installed a parallel “intelligence” operation to produce material to justify what they intended to do all along. They fixed the intelligence around the desired policy.

Besides the lies being newly-promoted, doesn’t the buck stop on the desks of elected officials? They, not the CIA or any intelligence bureaucracy, are elected to make this most important decision, the decision to attack another nation. They are not robots who are paid to rubber stamp or worse CREATE intelligence that is uncertain, distorted, manipulated and biased. They have the responsibility for their decisions. It goes along with their power to launch the country into war.

Any politician who now is rewriting events for his or her own political convenience deserves to be rebuked and held in contempt. They are showing the world their true petty and evil characters.

US Failure in Iraq and Syria: Troops on the Way?

Lew Rockwell Blog - Thu, 2015-05-21 14:42

First Ramadi fell to ISIS and then Palmyra. The Administration’s promise that airstrikes would defeat ISIS, as predicted, has proven empty. The US is now shipping anti-tank missiles to Iraq to destroy the US-provided tanks abandoned to ISIS by the Iraqi military. Raytheon must be thrilled. Neocons push for a US land invasion. Here’s Ron Paul’s take on the disintegration of Obama’s ISIS strategy:

How Long Will Conservative Christians Continue to Support the Boy Scouts?

Lew Rockwell Blog - Thu, 2015-05-21 13:55

It was bad enough when the Boy Scouts named war criminal Robert Gates as its president. Now he is calling for the ban on gay scout leaders to be ended. How long will conservative Christians continue to support the Boy Scouts? The ban on gay scout members has already been lifted. There are, of course, other reasons to avoid the Boy Scouts, as these LRC articles here and here, and this blog post, point out.

And how strange that an organization with a former secretary of defense as its president has banned the use of water guns.

How Design Philosophy Influences GNOME and KDE

Linux desktop users have two main sets of utilities: KDE's and GNOME's. The GNOME utilities are found in GNOME, MATE, Cinnamon and Unity. Neither KDE nor GNOME has any objective advantage over the other, but the user experiences are so different that they could almost be two different operating systems.
