Frozen in carbonite cosplay (link roundup)

Frozen in carbonite costume, spotted here amongst lots more Star Wars cosplay.

And a few world news links courtesy of Thomas Barnett:

1. The USA was prepared to use cyberwar techniques to freeze Saddam's bank accounts and deny Iraq access to money, but decided not to do so for fear that the attack would damage unintended targets.

2. "Many" seats were empty at Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's swearing in ceremony.

3. Hillary Clinton suggested Al Gore as envoy to obtain the release of the hostage, but North Korea asked for Bill Clinton.
