His statement was met with ridicule, disbelief and scorn around the world. How could the end of the “evil empire” be a bad thing? But maybe, he knew what he was talking about. During the Cold War, as dark as those days were, terrorism was sporadic at best. Most of it took place in Israel and since a lot of countries disliked Israel, it didn’t raise much of a stink. Of course, there was the Irish Republican Army in Northern Ireland who sometimes planted bombs in London, but for most of the world, terrorism wasn’t much of a blip on the radar screen. Then the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979 and the Afghan and foreign ghters who fought a guerrillatype hit-and-run war against the Soviets called themselves mujahadeen (holy warriors). They considered the ght a holy war and formed the core of what later became Al Qaeda. The Soviets, bloodied and worn out after 10 years of ghting, withdrew from Afghanistan in 1989 leaving a well-organized, well-armed Al Qaeda behind. The United States government backed the mujahadeen during the war because they were ghting the Soviet Union and we cheered them on, giving them rocket-propelled grenades, artillery, Stinger missiles that could take down Soviet helicopters and ghter jets, explosives and small arms. We snickered at how those poor, ignorant people humiliated the mighty Soviet army in the rugged mountainous terrain. Hmmmm. Could that have been a mistake? Of course, there was a man named Osama Bin Laden running around Afghanistan building a following for his extremist, kill-the-in dels view. Many believe the defeat in Afghanistan started the Soviet Union on the downward spiral to its breakup in 1991. Afterwards, Afghanistan, Ubekistan, Tajikistan and the other ‘stans’ that had been under Soviet control became havens for Islamic fundamentalists and extremists. So it seems all that support to the mujahadeen has come back to bite us in the behind doesn’t it? You almost have to ask if it would have been better for the world if we hadn’t helped the mujahadeen and the Soviets had won the war and controlled that wild, mountain country and its tribes and warlords? Maybe even captured or killed Bin Laden? If the Soviet Union still existed, would we actually be safer today? Is the world more dangerous now? The Soviets would have their nukes and know where they are and we would have our nukes and know were they are and out-of-work Soviet nuclear scientists wouldn’t be selling their knowledge around the world and we wouldn’t be worrying about a terrorist setting one off in our cities. Of course, the countries in Eastern Europe that were freed from Soviet domination after 40 years might disagree with that. They might think it was worth the tradeoff. But terrorism affects the whole world in one way or another. If the world economy should ever collapse because of terrorist activities, would the people in those countries still be better off? I’m not saying it would be a good thing if the Soviet Union still existed, but it’s interesting to speculate. Considering what’s happened in the world since then, their breakup might have been a case of ‘be careful what you wish for, it might come true.’


Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass Focus Focus 3 3 By Jim Garamone American Forces Press ServiceThe war on terror underlies every word in the Chairman’s Guidance to the Joint Staff. Marine Gen. Peter Pace, who took of ce as the 16th Joint Chiefs chairman on Friday, issued the guidance so members of the Joint Staff would understand his priorities and focus on what he considers important in the coming years, said defense of cials. Pace reiterates in a number of places in the guidance that he considers the war on terror to be winnable, but will be “a war of long duration.” Pace’s guidance is subtitled “Shaping the Future.” He said that while the emphasis must be on the war on terror, the U.S. military must be ready for any eventuality. Pace’s priorities are concise and mutually supporting. At the top is winning the war on terror. “Our enemies are violent extremists who would deny us, and all mankind, the freedom to choose our own destiny,” Pace wrote in the guidance. “Finding this distributed, loosely networked enemy is the greatest challenge we face.” The U.S. will meet and beat the enemy on the battle eld, but that is not enough, he said. Building better economies, encouraging good government and assisting governments as they live by the rule of law will help the world shape “an environment that precludes the ourishing of terrorism, much as a healthy body rejects the onslaught of disease.” The United States must harness all elements of national and international power to stop terrorists and stop young people from wanting to join jihadist organizations. “My military advice to our nation’s leaders will favor recommendations that integrate and coordinate our efforts with the work of others ghting this war,” Pace wrote. “Through closer coordination within the Department of Defense and interagency (cooperation) we maximize the impact of our military power and build trust, synergy and momentum.” His second priority is to speed up transformation processes within the military. Changing the old mindset is the most important aspect of this change. He wrote that at its heart, transformation “is a willingness on the part of the individual and the organization to embrace innovation and accept analyzed risk.” His third priority is to strengthen joint-war ghting capability. He said the U.S. military must transition “from an interoperable to an interdependent force.” The ghts in Afghanistan and Iraq have been more joint than any before, of cials said. Still, much more can — and must be — done. Pace said this move toward jointness does not mean a Joint Chiefs Chairman gives priorities, guidance diminution of the service cultures. “I want you to bring your service perspective to the decision process,” he wrote. The strength of this staff, like the strength of the nation, lies in the articulation of multiple views. Individual service perspectives brought together jointly, foster better solutions, which we then execute in a joint framework.” His nal priority is to improve the quality of life for servicemembers and their families. “Bringing our people home alive and intact is Quality of Life Job No. 1,” he wrote. “The best leadership, the most innovative tactics, the best equipment and the best force protection are indispensable to this goal.” Gen. Peter Pace, U.S. Marine Corps, joined Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld in elding questions from the audience in a Pentagon town hall meeting on March 18. Pace took of ce as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Friday. DoD photo by R. D. Ward


4 M a r s h a l l e s e c u l t u r e c o m e s By Mig Owens Assistant editorSmiling faces and fast-moving feet lled the George Seitz Elementary School Music Room Saturday as close to 40 dancers demonstrated their skills and love of Marshallese music. The room was but one stop on a course that sent students from kindergarten through sixth grade rotating through 11 sessions spread throughout the school; each session was designed to bring the Marshallese culture to life in celebration of Manit Day. Topics explored by students included weaving, coconut husking, medicinal plants, Marshallese medicine, navigation, astronomy, rice ball making, chanting, legends, shells, tattoos and language. Stations were staffed with Marshallese volunteers who regularly work on Kwajalein, special guests from Ebeye and high school students. The afternoon was full of rsts for Emma Conrad, 10, who had not tasted coconut juice or rice balls, seen Marshallese dancing or tried weaving palm fronds. “I’m amazed at how they can live off the palm trees…I have a different respect for them,” she said of the Marshallese. Angie Sinnott, English as a Second Language teacher, headed the Manit Day committee of ve teachers. She explained that the day was about exposing students to culture, tradition and customs and that this year an added emphasis was placed on participation. “I think it’s not just appropriate but important that we learn about the traditions and culture of the people of R o s a l y n n Y s a w a 1 0 p a t i c i p a t e s a s Rosalynn Ysawa, 10, paticipates as o n e o f t h e m a n y d a n c e r s i n t h e M a n i t one of the many dancers in the Manit D a y c e l e b r a t i o n S a t u r d a y a t G e o r g e S e i t z Day celebration Saturday at George Seitz E l e m e n t a r y S c h o o l Elementary School.

5See MARSHALLESE, Page 12Mathilda Capelle explains a little about Marshallese food to the classroom full of students. M a r s h a l l e s e c u l t u r e c o m e s t o l i f e a t e l e m e n t a r y s c h o o l our host country. Where better place to start than While standing in line to learn about coconut husking, Marc Ray, 11, twisted palm fronds to create a custom whip; a departure from the ‘Buggy Whip’ design taught by Lei Mamo, 13, and Irene Furgeson, 16, at the weaving session. “It’s cool what you can make out of the palm fronds,” he said, citing weaving as his favorite station. Unable to attend the previous year because of allergies, Ray said he particularly looked forward to trying the rice balls because he said, “last year my friends told me they were good!” Nearby in the Latchkey Room, those same rice balls, called ‘Juk-Juk,’ were making a hit with students as they were rolled in coconut and devoured. Dubbed the ‘Rice Ball Lady Lovers,’ the instructors were Mathilda Capelle, Rose Ysawa, Naomi Stephen and Gayle Pount. “Why is the coconut tree important?” Capelle asked students. “Because it gives drink and food. Austin Butler, 9, tries his hand at weaving. I think it’s not just appropriate but important that we learn about the traditions and culture of the people of our host country. — Angie Sinnott, ESL teacher“ “


Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Taking care Depression affects mind, body By Amanda Curtis, RN and Inge LeBlanc, RN, CCRN Kwajalein HospitalOn Kwajalein we have a beautiful blue sky, blue ocean, blues in the shes and giant clams in the lagoon…but sometimes blue is not the best color to describe our mood. Thursday is National Depression Screening Day. Just blue? A depressive disorder is not the same as a passing blue mood. It is not a sign of personal weakness or a condition that can be willed or wished away. People with a depressive illness cannot merely “pull themselves together” and get better. A depressive disorder is an illness that involves not only mood and thoughts, but also the body. It affects the way a person eats and sleeps, feels about themselves and thinks about things. Without treatment, symptoms can last for weeks, months or years. Appropriate treatment can help most people who suffer from depression. Not everyone who is depressed experiences every symptom. Some people experience a few symptoms, some many. Severity of symptoms varies with individuals and over time. Things to look out for include: • Persistent sad, anxious or “empty” mood • Feelings of hopelessness, pessimism, guilt, worthlessness or helplessness • Restlessness or irritability • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed • Decreased energy, fatigue or being “slowed down” • Dif culty concentrating, remembering or making decisions • Insomnia, early-morning awakening or oversleeping • Appetite and/or weight loss or overeating and weight gain • Thoughts of death or suicide; suicide attempts • Persistent physical symptoms that do not respond to treatment, such as headaches, digestive disorders and chronic pain. Facts about depression • In the United States, depression affects nearly 7 percent of men. It remains unclear whether depression is actually less common among men, or if men are just less likely to recognize and acknowledge the symptoms than women. • Women from 18 to 45 account for the largest proportion of people suffering from depression. • Depression affects more than 6.5 million of the 35 million Americans who are 65 or older. • Overall, approximately 20 percent of youth will have one or more episodes of major depression by the time they become adults. • Children of depressed parents have more dif culty relating to peers; have higher rates of depression and anxiety and increased rates of disruptive behavior problems. • From 10 to 15 percent of all depressions are triggered by medical conditions such as thyroid disease, cancer, neurological problems or by medications. The use of drugs and alcohol can also cause depression. Where to get help On Kwajalein, contact the Employee Assistance Program clinical psychologist, Marion Ruffing, MS, CEAP at 55362. Free depression screening tools are available to help evaluate the need for further intervention and treatment.A detailed booklet describing symptoms, causes and treatments is available from the National Institute of Mental Health’s Web site at or visit for more information.Editor’s note: Many of the statistics in this article come from the National Institute of Mental Health at: Taking care is a new column, provided by Curtis and LeBlanc, for the Hourglass and will appear twice a month on Wednesdays.

Making the analogy, he said, “just do like a shell – have strong feet.” Enjoying a coconut at the celebration, Dick Shields, teacher of instrumental music, recalled a time when Kwajalein students, including his own, could graduate knowing little about Marshallese culture. Their exposure to it, if any, was not by way of the schools. He attributes the shift to the Ebeye Guest Student Program, now in its 19th year. “It’s evolved for us to get that in uence throughout the school. Now high school kids have the opportunity to teach their culture to their little brothers and sisters,” Shields explained. Of Manit Day, he said with a smile, “Every kid is going to take away something from today…Every kid that leaves here knows what’s inside of a coconut and knows just how sticky it is.” Sun Moon Tides Sun rise/set Moon rise/set High Tide Low Tide Thursday 0637/1837 0833/2032 0520, 5.2' 1120, 0.6' Oct. 6 1740, 5.6' 2350, 0.7' Friday 0637/1837 0926/2120 0550, 4.9' 1150, 0.8' Oct. 7 1800, 5.4' Saturday 0637/1836 1023/2214 0620, 4.5' 0020, 1.0' Oct. 8 1840, 5.2' 1210, 1.1'
