The Pentagon on Tuesday alerted more than 35,000 Army soldiers that they could be sent to Iraq this fall. In Congress, House Democrats defiantly pushed a plan to limit war funding to two-month installments.
The Dhimmis damn well better make sure those 35,000 soldiers have all the equipment they need!
“You helped us celebrate our bicentennial in 1796,” he said confidently, and in a split second realised his error. “Er, 1976”, he corrected himself, to a gale of laughter from around the lawn. The Queen, smiling broadly, gave him a knowing sideways glance.
To another outburst of hilarity from the crowd he told her: “You gave me a look only a mother could give a child.”
At least he didn’t greet her with: “Yo, Majesty, how ya doin’?”
One minor slip is not “rewriting history, don’t make it an international incident. And by the way, the President is from Texas, not the Bronx. We don’t say “yo”!
Iran yesterday detained prominent American academic Haleh Esfandiari, director of the Middle East Program at the Smithsonian Institution’s Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, according to center president and director Lee H. Hamilton and Esfandiari’s husband.
Why are we not hearing more about Iran’s taking four U.S./Iranian hostages? That’s what they are, if you ask me.
Police Chief Bill Middleton, who spent much of the past year with the Army Reserves interrogating captured insurgents and foreign fighters in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, has filed a labor complaint alleging that the city has tried to demote him as he returns to work.
If anyone should receive preferential treatment, it should be our military. This sounds like a fairly political move. At least Dodge County welcomed it’s sheriff with open arms, but then, Dodge is fairly ‘red’.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi has offered the United States Tehran’s cooperation in developing a US exit strategy from Iraq, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.
It quoted Araghchi as saying the United States and Iran had the same interests in a stable Iraq and that direct talks leading to a “face-saving withdrawal” were possible. “The invasion was a disaster – let there not be a disastrous withdrawal. Yes, immediate withdrawal could lead to chaos, civil war. No one is asking for immediate withdrawal of foreign forces. But there should be a plan,” he said.
Oh, I just bet Iran has a ‘plan’. We exit, they enter.
Citing the futility of working with Republican House leaders in a special session, Gov. Sonny Perdue on Tuesday withdrew his veto of a $700 million mid-year budget bill but killed the $142 million property tax rebate contained in the document.
Why is the taxpayer always has to suffer because of politicians egos?
“Law & Order,” the crime procedural that has been a fixture of NBC’s schedule for 17 seasons, may move to cable next fall in an effort to stretch out the run of the ratings-poor but profitable show.
Perhaps if shows like Law & Order, and ER hadn’t taken such a sharp left turn, their rating might be a bit better?
Yahweh Ben Yahweh, a preacher’s kid from Oklahoma who grew up to lead a black supremist group that terrorized South Florida in the 1980s — demanding that his followers kill “white devils” and return with a body part as proof of the kill — died quietly in his sleep Monday, his lawyers said. He was 71.
White devils? Where have I read that kind of nonsense recently? Oh yeah…on McJackson Jr’s new blog.
