I wasn't really going to blow anyone up


Saturday, July 30, 2005


Two from Powerline this morning because I slept in.

The guy who tried to assasinate President Bush is captured.

Hugh Hewitt agrees to interviews with the MSM, but only on his show. They haven't taken him up on it.

Iraqi Constitution

This could be good news, because he wasn't all that happy with this version.

Another perspective

via Roger Simon. On rich kid guilt and jihad.

Van Gogh's son

Here's to hoping this is an urban rumor.

Ruling the World

Or "what they really want".


Bush style.

Nominee and the blogs

This is funny.

LAX Bomber

is sentanced. To 22 years. While the judge lectures the administration.

Michael Yon

Stories from Iraq, via Instapundit. Read the whole thing though.

What's going on

in India?


Always gets a spot here. His conclusion is absolutely valid.

This must be a good thing.

UN to protect children. Yet based on this article, it sounds like they are looking for "action plans" from groups like The Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda. If there isn't compliance, then the UN will target the government.... I have to be misunderstanding this.


Clinton saved Bosnia from Al-Qaeda?

The Times

is unbelievable!

Iraqi Constitution

They had me worried for a bit, but this sounds better than what I was hearing last week.

Van Gogh Killer is Sentanced

A little something about the guy.

Monday, July 25, 2005


This is a fun little exercise.

The part of 9/11 that didn't happen

here. Apparently there was one other story of this guy in December 2001 (keep following the links if interested), but I sure never knew of this.

Sunday, July 24, 2005


On Roberts. Or rather on Cohen's column on Roberts.


On multiculturalism. (Though I had a hard time getting through this column, it's still Steyn so he get's a spot.)

Hugh Hewitt vs Tancredo

I have to give this one to Hugh too.

On "why they hate us"


Get's bombed.... because we're in Iraq?

Not that I haven't thought of it, but he's a congressman!

China and US Technology

It makes you long for the high road, doesn't it.


The US is airlifting troops to Darfur.

Scroll down to this gem.
"And although some African news agencies have picked up the story I can't find coverage in the US media - where the usual story is that the US isn't doing enough."

Another article to keep in mind when the discussions all get going.


New color coded situation system.

New Blog

This might end up being a blog to keep up on.

This article on the war is waaay long and I'll have to finish it later, but it's been worth it these last 20 minutes now.

Not mine, but Chrenkoff's. I do like catblogging.

Final one

Lileks gets his screed going. He is just a good writer.

I didn't know

The Danes were such a goody ally too.

Being nice to the French

A view to keep in mind.


This is hilarious and is basically the explaination for why I find it hard to read left wing blogs....Being Zell Miller/Joe Lieberman leftie, I try to keep up with their blogs but yeesh! Be sure to click on the Iowahawk link in this article, it is funny.


Has it going on today.

Thursday, July 14, 2005


I hadn't heard this about the marshes anywhere.

This cracks me up

Evil infidel points added up.


I just received a recorded message on my phone yesterday telling me to call Marilyn Musgrave to oppose CAFTA. As a liberal democrat, it seems like I would be for helping out the poor in Central America. I'm not really getting how the NEA can be against CAFTA and FOR debt cancellation......?

Interesting Perspective

Iraqi's as the new Jews.

The Plame affair

In easy to follow terms. (at least based on everything I've read from other sources)

UPDATE: Wait, this is good too, then I'm done with this story.

Hugh Hewitt vs The Washington Post

I say Hugh wins this one.

Arab response

New perspectives coming out of Al-Hayat.

In Iraq

I hate them.

Map of terrorist attacks

Here's a map complete with music of Al Quaeda's works.


I just liked this rant.

This IS creepy

The BBC disappears the word "terrorist" from it's recent stories.

One more for today

A shorter version of "Good news from Iraq".


Trying to blow up a hospital for crying out loud. Thank goodness, the operative word is 'trying'.


And how to lose this war.

Bad news, but better than one alternative

We knew this to be true about the missing Seal.

Sunday, July 10, 2005


From the Chicago Sun-Times, a newer column on the London attack.

And from the Spectator, thoughts on the WTC memorial.

And for you music lovers

Lilek's screedblog is alway worth reading, but I forget to go there sometimes.

And one more for Today

Victor Davis Hanson.

Great Interview

With Paul Wolfowitz. I don't have time to read it this morning, but this struck me well!

**MB: "But how certain do you feel that you are right?"

PW: "I think someone once said that decision-making is usually trying to choose the least crappy of the various alternatives. It does seem to me that so many things we have to decide are fifty-five—forty-five decisions, or sixty—forty decisions. Arrogance is one of the worst failings in a senior decision-maker. I really admire people like President Bush and Harry Truman, who were good at it. Dean Acheson said about Truman that he was free of that most crippling of emotions, regret. Once he made a decision, he moved on. And I think that’s what characterizes really good decision-makers. I think this president is one. He accepts the fact that if he’s batting six hundred, he’s doing pretty well. I was in the Oval Office the day he signed the executive order to invade Iraq, and I know how painful that was. He actually went out in the Rose Garden just to be alone for a little while. It’s hard to imagine how hard that was. And of course you can’t be sure, maybe ten years from now or five years from now, how it will look. We still don’t know how it will turn out, so you can’t possibly be sure you were right.

PW: "I still think it was right. I’d advise it all over again if I had to. There is this sort of intellectual notion that there is such a thing as perfect knowledge, and you wait to get perfect knowledge before you make a decision. In the first place, even if there were perfect knowledge, it would be too late by the time you got it. And secondly, there is no such thing. Accepting the imperfection of knowledge is a very important part of being a great decision-maker. I’m not. I understand the process intellectually, less so emotionally. I feel a lot more comfortable about any decision I make if I feel like I have thought through all the arguments—even if at the end of the day there is not a mathematical formula that tells you which one is right. But at least you won’t discover a factor you hadn’t even considered.


Here's someone I've never read before with news on the Lodi investigations.

one more thing worth knowing today!


A fisking.

Mark Steyn

On the bombings.

If you skim this one, at least get the first and last quotes!

To start

Let's start with a quote today that expresses a similar sentiment to my own. A reader of Chrenkoff's writes,

**Update 1: Reader Jim writes:
Been watching the news casts all day and I must say I'm really tired of hearing how this was a "well planned attack" or a "well coordinated attack" or was done by "skilled, well trained terrorists."

What is so damn hard about telling a few crazies "here's a bomb, set it off in a bus or subway around eight o'clock AM on such a such day"? A troop of cub scouts could have pulled this off! All you need is one guy to get the bombs rigged and a bunch of crazies to plant them. And since these bombs went off over a period of time, and apparently set with timers, instead of simultaneously, they could have been dropped by just one or two people. Why do we make it sound as if these scum are so smart, so skilled, so well trained? Why make them bigger than they are? Why stroke their egos with such praise?**

I've wondered that myself.

This is awful.


And money and contributions and why does this guy need to do the work of the press?

Cultural Competency?

It's a laugh a minute this morning. Be sure to visit Roger Simon to take part in his contest!


This made me laugh out loud yesterday when it was on Best of the Web. (an example of Reuters anti-Americanism)

2 more posts

One on that silly Molly Ivans piece.

And one more.

Bush Interview

Well worth reading.

Insert scream here

Nancy Pelosi making yet another ass of herself. What will it take to tip me to the other side and actually become the R word....? It's getting closer, and closer and closer to that time as this crap continues!

Memorize this Post

Ok, maybe it's a little long for memorization, but wouldn't it be great if the next time someone started whining about "why we are in Iraq", if you could just quote all of this?
