Bush rules. This was soooo cool.

Bush Trip to Iraq
ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE (AP) - Three hours from landing on a high-risk visit to Baghdad, President Bush was most anxious about keeping it a secret. "I was fully prepared to turn this baby around, come home," Bush said later aboard Air Force One. To everyone's amazement the secrecy held.

The world did not learn that Bush had spent 2 1/2 hours Thursday on a Thanksgiving Day visit to troops in Baghdad until his jumbo jet was again in the air, flying back to the United States, where he arrived early Friday, making it back to his ranch in Texas shortly before daybreak.

Why are the dems foaming over this ad? Could it be that they know it's right? In fact, the libs are so pathetic that Doc Dean has used this as a motivator to raise more campaign funds. Well, he's going to need that money when ads like this that air during the primaries and the general election pulverize him into oblivion. I can't wait.

I know I have my deck of cards, but I haven't stayed up to date on the captures. Thanks to Dr.Weevil.

Anna Kournikova...

I watched a special on E! this weekend. She's cute, but has no talent. She's merely famous for being famous. She needs tennis lessons. Has Penthouse or Playboy offered her a spread yet?

Update: I guess Anna Kournikova is making a comeback. We'll see.
Paris Hilton Won't Watch Sex Tape
Wow, there's a surprise, why watch it when you've lived it...
I had heard so much about this tape from Howard Stern, that I had to see it for myself. The short version on the web is pretty dull and horrible quality. Plus, she keeps staring into the camera like a deer in the headlights with her retinas overexposed from the camera light. Not very interesting.

I think I had my first visitor earlier this week on Thursday. How sad. Oh well, it's only up from here. Thank you, whoever you are.
Just say no... to the International Criminal Court:

Bomber's Cell is Plush

Families of Pan Am flight 103 victims are expressing outrage over reports that a former Libyan intelligence officer who was convicted in the 1988 Pan Am bombing is serving his prison sentence in luxury....

Pictures of Megrahi's surroundings at the Glasgow prison have appeared in the British media.

News of the World said the facilities rival those of a four-star hotel.

"They include his own kitchen and shower room, a sitting room and bedroom with en-suite toilet," the newspaper said.

The Daily Mail wrote that the conditions are in contrast to those experienced by the rest of the prisoners.

"Obviously, this is not justice or punishment, this is just part of a deal," said Dan Cohen, of Cape May Courthouse, New Jersey Cohen is the father of Theodora Cohen, one of the 270 persons who died in the December 21, 1988, explosion over Lockerbie, Scotland.

This is the crap that the ICC will eventually dole out, if it can actually convict someone without stepping all over itself. The guy should rot in some Godforsaken stinkhole for his crime. The EUnichs behind this make me sick.

Saddam and Osama: Take Two

Slate has a take on the DoD memo allegedly denying the Weekly Standard's story on the leaked memo:

The DoD objection is a bit of a red herring. Except for the Weekly Standard's grandiose title "Case Closed" (it should have been titled "Case Open"), the Hayes piece works assiduously (until its final paragraph, at least) not to oversell the memo. Hayes' ample quotations from the memo preserve much of the qualifying language that fudges any absolute case for the Saddam-Osama connection.

This doesn't prevent Pincus from letting his sources rip the memo. One anonymous "former senior intelligence officer" quoted by Pincus sniffs that the memo is not an intelligence product but "data points ... among the millions of holdings of the intelligence agencies, many of which are simply not thought likely to be true."

Case Open

The pinheads on the left, including whining, sniveling lefties like Pincus and his anti-war "reporting", don't want to touch this. They really are pathetic.

Bush visits London.

A majority of Labour voters welcome President George Bush's state visit to Britain which starts today, according to November's Guardian/ICM opinion poll.

The survey shows that public opinion in Britain is overwhelmingly pro-American with 62% of voters believing that the US is "generally speaking a force for good, not evil, in the world". It explodes the conventional political wisdom at Westminster that Mr Bush's visit will prove damaging to Tony Blair. Only 15% of British voters agree with the idea that America is the "evil empire" in the world.

Majority Welcome Bush

Protest all you want my silly leftie friends, it's clear that you're in the minority. Oh, by the way, where were you when human rights afficianados like Mugabe, Zemin, Putin, or Assad visited England? Probably sucking on your momma's teet. Losers.

And in my email this weekend was this from the Department of Defense (I'm on one of their email lists):
No. 851-03
Nov 15, 2003

DoD Statement on News Reports of al-Qaida and Iraq Connections

News reports that the Defense Department recently confirmed new information with
respect to contacts between al-Qaida and Iraq in a letter to the Senate Intelligence
Committee are inaccurate.

A letter was sent to the Senate Intelligence Committee on October 27, 2003 from
Douglas J. Feith, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, in response to follow-up
questions from his July 10 testimony. One of the questions posed by the committee
asked the Department to provide the reports from the Intelligence Community to which
he referred in his testimony before the Committee. These reports dealt with the
relationship between Iraq and al-Qaida.

The letter to the committee included a classified annex containing a list and
description of the requested reports, so that the Committee could obtain the reports
from the relevant members of the Intelligence Community.

The items listed in the classified annex were either raw reports or products of the
CIA, the NSA, or, in one case, the DIA. The provision of the classified annex to
the Intelligence Committee was cleared by other agencies and done with the
permission of the Intelligence Community. The selection of the documents was made
by DOD to respond to the Committee's question. The classified annex was not an
analysis of the substantive issue of the relationship between Iraq and al Qaida, and
it drew no conclusions.

Individuals who leak or purport to leak classified information are doing serious
harm to national security; such activity is deplorable and may be illegal.

No denial of the information. Again, case closed.

OSAMA BIN LADEN and Saddam Hussein had an operational relationship from the early 1990s to 2003 that involved training in explosives and weapons of mass destruction, logistical support for terrorist attacks, al Qaeda training camps and safe haven in Iraq, and Iraqi financial support for al Qaeda--perhaps even for Mohamed Atta--according to a top secret U.S. government memorandum obtained by THE WEEKLY STANDARD.

The memo, dated October 27, 2003, was sent from Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas J. Feith to Senators Pat Roberts and Jay Rockefeller, the chairman and vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. It was written in response to a request from the committee as part of its investigation into prewar intelligence claims made by the administration. Intelligence reporting included in the 16-page memo comes from a variety of domestic and foreign agencies, including the FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Agency. Much of the evidence is detailed, conclusive, and corroborated by multiple sources. Some of it is new information obtained in custodial interviews with high-level al Qaeda terrorists and Iraqi officials, and some of it is more than a decade old. The picture that emerges is one of a history of collaboration between two of America's most determined and dangerous enemies.

Weekly Standard: Case Closed

For all my leftie friends out there, this is enough to justify the war, not that it needed justification in my mind. And don't complain that its CIA propaganda because just last week you twits were barking about a CIA memo criticizing the rebuilding effort in Iraq. Enough with the selective intelligence, you hypocrites.

The Times actually plays fair, although they don't say much about the chart. The only disturbing trend is the increase in attacks, even though the statistics I had seen indicated at least 45 attacks per day in the May/June timeframe.

Bush is heading to England:

protesters angry over the official invitation are planning a series of marches and stunts during his three-day trip next week.

One of those will be the toppling of a statue of Bush from a plinth in Trafalgar Square in a symbolic aping of the overthrow of Saddam Hussein by U.S.-led forces this year.

The six-meter (18-foot) papier-mache effigy is being built by Mell Harrison and her colleagues from peace group Theatre of War at her home in Suffolk, eastern England. It will later be painted bronze and transported to London.

Noisy Reception for Bush

These idiots can't get over the fact that they lost and Bush won. I'll be watching when they pull that thing down, hoping that it lands on a couple of pinhead protesters.
World Bank initiative to combat AIDs:
'Anti-Aids corridor' for west Africa

Travellers infected by HIV-positive sex workers can spread the disease
Long-distance drivers and sex workers who operate along a busy route from Abidjan to Lagos are being targeted in a new project funded by the World Bank.
Education and services designed to stop the spread of HIV and Aids will be established along the transport corridor which is used by up to three million people a year.

The World Bank approved a $16.6m grant to fund the project on Thursday, marking the first time it has backed a cross-border HIV/Aids initiative in Africa.
But sex workers are far more likely to be infected, with rates as high as 85.4% in Cotonou in Benin and 74% in Accra, Ghana's capital city, the organisation says.

Anti-Aids Corridor

Another reason to avoid West Africa.
I just came across this website about the Eurocorps. I can't stop laughing.

The Eurocorps was created in 1992 as the concrete implementation of a political will that has developed since the 1950's.

I wonder how the Euro Corps Band is doing? Idiots.
Stack 'em up.

U.S. Gunship Kills 7, Foils Iraq Attack
AP ^ | Nov.l 14, 2003 | SAMEER N. YACOUB

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- Gunmen killed a U.S. civilian contractor and injured another north of Baghdad, while an Apache helicopter killed seven people suspected of preparing a rocket attack on a U.S. base near Tikrit, the military said Friday.

Gunship Kills 7

That reminds me, I have to order a cord of wood today.
General John Abizaid, Commander, CENTCOM:

"we can't be defeated militarily"
Abizaid Briefing

That's all I need to know. I know Bush is on board, but if we lose the politicians to leftist pressure like Vietnam then this will be a quagmire. Right now, things are going fine despite the bellowing from the talking heads.

Apparently, he's trying to sound like Clinton.

KERRY-ISMS. But is everything all right?

Kerry said on CNN’s “Inside Politics” on Nov. 3, “I am not as far behind in New Hampshire today as Al Gore was to Bill Bradley four years ago.”

On Oct. 27, he told the New York Observer, “Al Gore was behind Bill Bradley by more points than I am right now behind Howard Dean.”

That isn’t so, at least in New Hampshire.

Recent polls show Kerry trailing Dean here by 13 or 14 percentage points.

In early November 1999, the American Research Group had Gore leading Bradley, 46 to 40 percent, and a Dartmouth College/Associated Press poll had Gore leading Bradley 48 to 41 percent. Newsweek at that time had Gore leading Bradley by 10 points, while Franklin Pierce College had Bradley leading Gore by 7.

Kerry told Bob Schieffer of CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, “I’m the only one in the campaign that’s raised over $20 million.” In fact, Dean raised about $25 million by the end of the third quarter.

Hey Captain Ketchup, I think you sucked in too much exhaust from the motorcycle on Leno. Any more of this and you're going to have to fire yourself.
Gore Vidal -- bloated, puss-filled, almost-octogenarian idiot.

"Or, in a brand-new wrinkle, you can be exiled, stripped of your citizenship and packed off to another place not even organized as a country — like Tierra del Fuego or some rock in the Pacific."

Do you not think of Bush and Ashcroft as Americans?

I think of them as an alien army. They have managed to take over everything, and quite in the open. We have a deranged president. We have despotism. We have no due process.
Gore Vidal

Tierra del Fuego sounds like its got your name all over it, Gore.

Paper says militants rigged Koran with explosives
Wed 12 November, 2003 08:06

RIYADH (Reuters) - Muslim militants planning attacks in Saudi Arabia's holiest city, Mecca, booby-trapped copies of Islam's holy book, the Koran, to kill and maim pilgrims, a leading Saudi-owned newspaper has reported.

The London-based daily Asharq al-Awsat on Wednesday quoted Saudi security sources as saying that this novel weapon was discovered in the arms caches police found after raiding militant hideouts in Mecca and the capital Riyadh in recent weeks.

Suspected al Qaeda militants killed at least 18 people this week in a suicide car bombing at a Riyadh residential compound housing mainly Arab expatriates.

Last week, police besieged militant safe houses in both cities and killed five Islamists in the clashes. In Mecca, police said they had found tonnes of explosives and rocket propelled grenade launchers, which Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz said were to be used to attack pilgrims.

In July, police searching militant caches in Mecca found souvenir clocks resembling the Koran that had been booby-trapped.

Koran Rigged

What are they thinking? Oh yes, I forgot, it's the religion of peace.
Is Pravda trying to say Bush had something to do with this nut:

Dead Woman Who Accused Bush of Rape

Margie Schoedinger dies as a result of a gunshot wound to the head

Margie Schoedinger, the woman who allegedly filed a lawsuit against George W. Bush in December 2002, claiming that she had been raped, has died of a gunshot wound to the head, registered officially as "suicide".

Dead Woman

Hmmm, suicide you say? She probably did it on the grassy knoll.
This is my first post. This is only a test.
