CAV

I've been too busy to read CavX for the past few days, and it seems I've missed out. He always picks up on the nuances that I miss:

Wait a second... am I missing something here? Everyone's concerned that al-Qaeda may be behind the attack on Spain because they're angry that Spain was our ally in Iraq? I thought that the Liberals and other anti-liberation groups have been insisting for a year that al-Qaeda may have been in Afghanistan, but had nothing to do with Iraq. Why are they suddenly concerned that al-Qaeda committed an act of terrorism in Spain because of its involvement in Iraq, without mentioning Afghanistan? According to Liberal doctrine, Osama bin Laden hated Saddam and wanted him removed for ideological reasons.

Holy crap, he's right. And these are the people who accuse our President of twisting facts around to fit his cause...

FED UP

Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks 1-77 gets too much attention from Stars and Stripes. Scroll down to Servicemembers unrecognized.

GIMMICK

Hey, SGT Hellerman, you totally stole my gimmick! I'm the one who peeks out of the tank, got it?

(Fun article on tanks. But you have to look at the photo on Sunday, because there's no permalink for the main page.)

HOOT

Bunker's boys sound like a real hoot. He posted a great photo today of his son making mischief in Iraq.

CONSTITUTION

For those of us who get a headache at the mere thought of trying to read the new Iraqi constitution but still want to know what's in it, Den Beste's our man. Naturally.

CHIEF

The Chief may be home, but he's turning right back around and heading to Iraq again. At least it will get him away from the godawful tv.

GRUMPY

BEST

Go over and read the Best today. Teaser:

The events of the last two years make clear that there's no such congruency between broad "global" interests and the best interests of the people of Iraq, since so much of the globe argued in favor of policies which would have left Saddam in power and seemed to do everything possible to prevent the invasion. Broader inclusion of the UN and other forms of "global consent" in the post-invasion process would have seriously damaged its credibility.

And look, Kerry fisks himself!

TOFU

The Best is back in full form, connecting tuberculosis and terrorism, and Kerry and tofu. For only the second time in my life, I beat him to certain punches: he also discusses how quitting the war now will lead to more serious consequences down the road. Welcome back, maestro.

ASSUMPTION

What's that old saying? When you assume, you make an ass out of you and me? Somebody assumed big time about Baldilocks...

GASP

Oh my god! Explain to me again how Islam claims to be the Religion of Peace? I'd wager these kids might disagree...

(Not for the weak of stomach.)

PORK PORK PORK

Kim du Toit has only been here a few days, and he's already sick of pork and schnitzel. Think of how we feel, Kim!

WEEKEND LINKING

Some good links that popped up over the weekend while I was busy fighting with HTML:

Nelson Ascher has an interesting analysis of Tony Blair. Many Americans seem to prefer Blair to Bush, so I found Ascher's point of view was really interesting.

Scrappleface clowns the United Nations, and Parkway Rest Stop found us a permission slip for next time.

David presents a graph of applications for asylum filed by Iraqis in Germany; do you think the number has risen or fallen since we intervened?

Stars and Stripes explains why our servicemembers wear a patch with a "backwards" flag. I wish this article had come out about 8 months ago when I saw my first one; I had to do some major research to learn why.


Also last night I was watching the Simpsons and caught the tail end of a military news brief. It was about some soldiers who organized an Iraqi talent show under something called the Freedom and Democracy Program. I saw clips of young Iraqis playing the guitar and dancing, but when I went to find more information online about this, there were no links anywhere. Nothing. I couldn't find a single thing about this. The only reason I know it happened is because I get military TV programming. Sad.
