A British newspaper reported Sunday that Israel has drafted plans to strike as many as three targets in Iran with low-yield nuclear weapons, aiming to halt Tehran’s uranium enrichment program. The Israeli Foreign Ministry denied the report.
Citing multiple unidentified Israeli military sources, The Sunday Times said the proposals involved using so-called “bunker-buster” nuclear weapons to attack nuclear facilities at three sites south of the Iranian capital.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s office said it would not respond to the claim. “We don’t respond to publications in the Sunday Times,” said Miri Eisin, Olmert’s spokeswoman.
This is sure to make the region a little more tense. The quote from the end of the CBS article is a classic. “No reliable source would ever speak about this, certainly not to the Sunday Times.”
I decided to post a second video since the Cowboys went down in flames. So, instead of hitting my TV or drinking, I’m listening to music.
One of my favorite albums (CD’s) of all time is Quincy Jones’ Back on the Block. The sound was the first thing that hit me. The list of great artists on this album include Ray Charles, Ice T, Barry White, Chaka Kahn and El DeBarge just to name a few. Somehow Quincy manages to mix the old with the new and get a GREAT sound. His version of Birdland is better than any I have ever heard before.
In this video you can see the great acapella gospel group Take 6 in the background. Al Jarreau looks like his just got out of rehab. It is a great tune nonetheless.
I really like this tune. When I first heard it I was stuck by its groove and its old school sound. It is more than 7 years later and I still love it.
The rapper on this tune deserves a special note. She is Left Eye Lopez from TLC. She was a very talented troubled young women. She died in a motor vehicle crash in Honderas in 2002.
