Just Some Thoughts

Last night I watched a replay of Tony Blair's speech to the Labor Party. One line stood out to me above the rest:
The British people will forgive you for making a mistake but they won't forgive indecisiveness.

I for one will miss his leadership.



Recently the New York Times published a classified document(again!), claiming that the war in Iraq has led to an increase of terrorist activity.
Does this qualify as news? Of course a war will increase our enemies activities. Did we expect them to roll over and do nothing?
What most bothered me about this report is once again the New York Times has committed an act of treason. Why does the fourth estate get a free pass every time it leaks information to the enemy that can be used against our soldiers?
They shoot traitors...if nothing else at least hold them in custody until they release the name of their sources.

An Israeli military court has ordered the release of the Palestinian deputy prime minister because of a lack of evidence against him, his lawyer says.
Has Israel gained the release of any of their soldiers who were kidnapped in Palestine(1) or Hezbollah(2)?

Best comments made by a Democrat this past month goes to Congressman Charles Rangel:
I want to express my extreme displeasure with statements by the President of Venezuela attacking U.S. President George Bush in such a personal and disparaging way during his remarks at the United Nations General Assembly.


It should be clear to all heads of government that criticism of Bush Administration policies, either domestic or foreign, does not entitle them to attack the President personally.

George Bush is the President of the United States and represents the entire country. Any demeaning public attack against him is viewed by Republicans and Democrats, and all Americans, as an attack on all of us.



And finally....Is this the week when we finally reach and break the all-time DOW record of 11,723?

Blair is leaving due to pressure from his own side of the house. Admittedly, Iraq may be in a state of a mess, and we did admit that it would take a long time to get Iraq back on her own two feet again.

As for the Dow, I think it might happen today. I am glad that I changed my stock investment options over to aggressive and dynamic.

Iraq is in better shape than it was under Saddam Hussein.

It now has a unified government that represents all Iraqis.

It no longer poses a threat to its neighbors.

More people died under Saddam's regime than are dying in the current insurgency.

Any problems that Iraq is currently experiencing was created by the sick Baathist regime.

Lets not transfer the blame. It wasnt Tony Blair who invaded Kuwait, dug mass graves full of Shiites or car bombed mosques.

The misinformation of Islamists and Leftists needs to be corrected. Our media is not telling the whole story.

I've given up on our media a long time ago. I've seen how they twist the truth through misrepresentation or cherry picking or whatever method necessary
I agree Iraq poses no threats but I'm more worried about the threat Iran poses to Iraq.
Have we handed Iraq over to a Shi'ite theocracy?
I can easily Iraq splitting into three separate states or countries.
If I've given the impression that I blame Tony Blair in any way it wasn't my intention. I think Tony Blair has been a true friend to this country and to the war on terror.

Rangel is problematic in that he remains firmly a Leftist. But that statement was perfect!

Blair will be missed as much as Mrs. Thatcher was.

The DOW can't hit a record! Not possible! I know because the MSM tells me that the economy sucks!

Rangel may be a Democrat, AC, but at least he's an American first. It's like when you get in the middle of a family feud. You'd better stay out of it and not choose sides, because sooner or later you will get bit in the butt! I can call my husband a bad name if I'm ticked off, but by all that's holy, no one else can get away with it, not if I hear it! I believe that's where Rangel was coming from. We Americans have the right to criticize, even if we are wrong. Too bad there aren't more family-loyal Democrats.

AC,

I have absolutely no worries about a Shiite theocracy as long as Al-Sistani is leading the Shia.

Yet he is old and wont live forever, while Sadr is still young.

So there is a threat in the future, but you will see closer cooperation between the Kurds and Sunni in that event.

That is why Democracy is so important.

The Kurds will face off against the bigger threat, Baathist or Shia, and the Kurds have been very faithful allies for the US. They have temporarily given up the push for independence in deference to our wishes.

The Sunni insurgency has been cutoff from Kurdish territory so things are going well for them.

The Shia and Sunni Arabs have a lot to learn from them. While the Iraqi insurgents are failing in everything they do the Kurds are living better and better.

In the three years of conflict what has the insurgency accomplished?

Blair will be missed, that's for sure. He has been a true friend to America. We can only hope that the new leadership will follow his lead and not succumb to Eurabia.

I definitely wasn't endorsing Rangal as a politician. He was just the first of few Democrats who at least was angered by Chavez.

The insurgency has probably cost the Republicans the Senate and the House plus the lives of thousands of innocent people.
I agree the Kurds are doing much better without Saddam but the Sunnis in my opinion are doing much worse.
We never should have dealt with Sadr, all it did was give him legitimacy. I believe Iran has more influence in parts of Iraq than the US does.

Hiya AC...NYSlimes= Treason..simple as that..I read it to "know what the enemy is thinkin"..u should see their coverage of Raaaaaaaaaaaaama-daaaan..and barely a word about Jewish New year..NO surprise there!

I noticed that, too, Angel! How transparent!

The elections havent even happened yet and you are writing the Republican Party off.

CQ Politics predicts a Republican victory in the Senate and the House.

The enemy (Islamists) wants you to be discouraged...

...Of course the Sunnis are doing terrible. There are too many people that want Saddam back in power and Sunni control of the govt.

The Shia have close ties to Iran, there isnt much that we can do about that.

Some Kurds want to be a part of the 51st state. Of course that will never happen, but its cute.

Americans want to win every single battle. Relax and concentrate on winning the most important battles as well as those that we have the best chances of winning.

The reed bends with the wind, while the tree is too stiff and breaks.

Take it easy...
