Well?

Who do you suppose soldiers reportedly captured or killed in Iraq?

How many people do you think USofA soldiers killed? And were they guerrillas* or civilians?

Is this legitimate?

(* This blog will no longer conform to the Administration's preference for referring to Iraqi guerrilla fighters as "insurgents.")

And this may be the dumbest thing you read today. Apparently the USofA is fighting with British Airways about whether or not a BA pilot...no, forget it. There's so little to the story that it isn't worth repeating.

Who's our only ally at the moment? No...not in Iraq or Afghanistan. It's that other war...the one being waged against the environment. Well, it's Russia, who has joined us in refusing to ratify the Kyoto protocol.

Okay, so some of us hope soldiers and veterans take Bush's PR stunts with a grain of salt and notice that no matter what he says, he keeps trying to slash their benefits.

Of course, bankers and securities brokers don't have to worry. They don't get the PR stunts, but they're getting Bush's support in other ways.

Krugman is critical of Diebold, but most sensible people are.

There's probably more I should be mentioning, but I'm too busy reading this and wondering if we really could end terrorism if we went about it right.

Anyhow, I feel like I'm still playing catch-up, so I'm going to go read blogs for a while.

Actually, I prefer "insurgents" to "terrorists."
