So, the company is sending me to Chicago next week for a job. OK, that’s fine. However, the fact that they are flying me up there on the fifth anniversary of 9/11 does have me a little bit spooked.
But I’m sure I’ll be fine. If any terrorists have designs on the plane I’m occupying, I’ve got two words for them:
The troops are taking photos of the insurgents…
So a new report out says that over 500 chemical weapons, mainly mustard and sarin gas, have been found since 2003. But wait, Saddam said that he had gotten rid of all of them, how could that be?
Still no mention of the report on CNN’s front page, and a search for “WMD” turns up nothing since 6/2. I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!
UPDATE: Hmmm… No mention on ABC, CBS, MSNBC… But plenty of coverage on the Marines facing charges. Odd how liberals are soft on crime (see Willie Horton) until a serviceman is accused of something. Then, of course, as Jack Murtha would tell you, they’re just plain guilty.
UPDATE: HotAir has some video from last night Hannity and Colmes about the topic where Allen, predictably, attempts to downplay the significance.
Much ado is being made about hitting the 2,500 dead US soldiers in Iraq mark. While each and everyone is a sad loss, for a three-year period during a war, that number is extrememly low.
For some perspective, check out these stats:
|American Revolution (1775?1783)|
|War of 1812 (1812?1815)|
|Indian Wars (approx. 1817?1898)|
|Mexican War (1846?1848)||
Just saw this video clip from Hannity and Colmes.
To paraphrase Chris Rock, I’m not saying the military should take this guy out, but if they did, I’d understand.
I would categorize that guy as human debris.

Eighteen arrests already, and most of the month to go.
Way to go, guys!
when I read this:
Iran’s armed forces vowed Thursday they would defend the country’s nuclear ambitions, warning “Great Satan” the United States that it faced certain defeat if it decided to attack.
I can see it now. It would be the “Mother Of All Battles”.
I seriously doubt we’ll be invading Iran anytime soon, anyway.
But, from the sound of it, at least this guy finally got a new job.
More Border Patrol agents will be forthcoming:
WASHINGTON (AP) – The Homeland Security Department will assign more than 500 additional patrol agents to the porous Arizona border, saying they will help keep potential terrorists and illegal immigrants from entering the country, The Associated Press has learned.
That’s definitely a good start.
