LOL,
Iraq is free, they do have a Democracy. They are simply overrun by bad
guys who hate democracy or are street thugs paid to kill.

Those are the facts….sorry….reality here… come to bite you in the balls.

What country isn’t?

mercenary @ 09/27/07 11:14:41

hitlabeshi,

Iraq
isn’t free, it is occupied by a “coalition” of foreign troops of which
more than 160,000 are U.S. troops. In addition there are tens of
thousands of private contractors doing “security” work for the U.S.
State Dept. and private business interests.

Free democratic states
don’t have foreign troops conducting combat operations within them or
insurgencies fighting against their central governments.

Those are the facts, leave my balls out of the discussion.

Peace,

You mean Izzy?

Hard to keep cheer leading the GWOT
while simultaneously watching the U.S. dollar drop by 40% of its former
value against the Euro while millions of U.S. citizens are losing their
homes to default and foreclosures.

Izzy was also a Gore fan/CO2 is climate change style environmental activist.

Go figure. Maybe he forgot how to log on.

GWHunta @ 12/31/07 10:57:37

Go figure.

Indeed. I had no idea. I figured that he had moved so far to the right, that he forgot about the center.

Maybe he forgot how to log on._

Too funny, man.

Hard to keep cheer leading the GWOT
while simultaneously watching the U.S. dollar drop by 40% of its former
value against the Euro while millions of U.S. citizens are losing their
homes to default and foreclosures.

Paul Krugman wrote “The Great Unraveling” in 2003. That either makes him clairvoyant or an economist.

The architects of the WOT hope to deflect any unrest at home. But, they will be unable to control the rising tide of instability at home and abroad, by the very monsters they have created while soothed by the opiate-like induced coma that only ‘The Seven Deadly Sins” can bring.

Terror is a relative term.

I suffered a close encounter of the third kind with a microwaveable
sour-cream enchilada dinner. I thought it was a pretty good deal when I
saw the $1.98 price tag there in the frozen food section of sprawlmart.

I got home, cooked it and even gussied it up with a bit of hot sauce.

I had the same sensation that I experienced when at the dentists office,
getting high on laughing gas, I was asked by the dentist whether I
thought I had enough, when I answered, “No, not yet”! I think he saw
right past the the ruse. Maybe it was the ‘Smilin’ Bob’ expression on my
face or the fact the he could see all 88 of my teeth without asking me
to open wide.

Sorry for the digression.

So, there I am about to partake in a $1.98 meal, thinking to myself “Wow, a buck
ninety-eight. What a deal”! Little did I know that what you save in
dollars will cost you big in the sitting room.

You know that feeling when you’re trying to blow a St. Bernard outta your ass?

Your head is spinning, flames are coming out of your nostrils, you’re
sweating and biting on the towel rack, just praying to any God that
whatever it is isn’t breeched. I mean, I dialed 91 and waited before
dialing the last 1, unsure of how to explain my situation. Should I
Crab-walk to the car and take myself to the emergency room? Was there
such a thing as a twenty-four, privacy advocating, Obstetrician who
could help? or was this a job for a Proctologist?

That was Terror!

But, it was a cakewalk compared to trying to make sense of Iffy.

In the housing crisis, there will be winners. On balance, many of the
people who bought homes were just as uninformed as the idiots who took
on the under-writing of such loans, and the practice of buying loans or
debt, willy-nilly, didn’t help the situation in the recent past nor will
it in the future.

Revisit, “Missed Fortune”, by Doug Andrew here
for a snapshot into creative marketing. It takes advantage of policies
intended for, and used by, the already wealthy real estate moguls, and
those in Government whose ventures are backed by tax dollars. They don’t
fear the situation wherein they need a bailout, because he who has the
gold makes the rules.

Are you changing the sign yourself? or is this someone else’s campaign?

Twitch @ 01/02/08 18:20:58

Mine.
These pictures are somewhat dated, they’re from 2004. I’ve had the sign
going for most of the past eight years. Done a variety of things with
it over the years.

Started out in the back of one of my old pickup trucks as a political campaign banner back in 1998.

It became a semipermanent part of the neighborhood as a road sign later
that fall. (Much to the dismay of some of the more conservative of my
neighbors and those of similar persuasion passing by)

Today it posts the number of dead U.S. troops on one side and the cost of the war in Iraq on the other.

You’ll notice this blog is updated daily if need be, as is the sign.

When the updates stop, you’ll know my lot in life has taken a definite turn for the worse.

A heartbeat away

The US navy said the two F/A-18 Super Hornets were providing “close air
support from Iraq when they crashed”, but all three pilots – two from
one jet and one from the other – ejected safely.

Lieutenant John Gay from the 5th fleet’s headquarters in Bahrain said there was “no connection” between Monday’s crash and the harassment by the Iranian boats.

house in Diyala, the U.S. command said. It also announced that three
U.S. soldiers were killed and two wounded in an attack Tuesday in
Salahuddin province, north of Diyala.

U.S. warplanes flatten ‘safe havens’ in Iraq

U.S. bombers and jet fighters unleashed 40,000 pounds of explosives during a
10-minute airstrike Thursday, flattening what the military called
al-Qaida in Iraq safe havens on the southern outskirts of the capital.

The wars in Iraq (the plural is no typo) are about to expand and possibly
explode, so it might be useful to have some notion of what we’re in for.

Attacks on U.S. Forces Soared at End of March

Attacks against U.S. troops and Iraqi security forces soared across Baghdad in
the last week of March to the highest levels since the deployment of
additional U.S. troops here reached full strength last June, according
to U.S. military data and analysis

Could the spike been instigated by Cheney & McCain’s mid-March trips to Iraq to espouse
their support and praise the success of “surge?”

That’d be approximately 5% of the Iraqi population at a minimum that have been
decimated due to economic sanctions and the resulting disease and
hunger as well as the war itself since the onset of the slaughter of the
Iraqi army on the “highway of death” as they were retreating from
Kuwait.
