Dick Cheney aka VICE PRES. aka puppet master speaking with MR. TIM RUSSERT
Say he would do it [the war]
all over age the exact same way!!!!
Damn His Eyes! They just dont get it!!
Meet the Press transcript:

VICE PRES. CHENEY: You’d have a man who had demonstrated capacity for violence, who started two wars, who had, in fact, been involved with weapons for mass destruction, who had every intention of going back to it when the sanctions were lifted. And by this point, especially with Ahmadinejad living next door in Iran, pursuing nuclear weapons, there’s no doubt in my mind that if Saddam Hussein was still in power, would have a very robust program under way to try to do exactly the same thing. The world is better off because Saddam Hussein is in jail instead of in power in Baghdad. It was the right thing to do and if we had it to do over again, we’d do exactly the same thing.

MR. RUSSERT: Exactly the same thing?

winning the midterm elections the BUSH way
Just when BUSH needs it, he pops
the fear word
terrorism !!! (see below*) Sort of like the word "liberal" used in the past,
but oh it has than little extra Texas Kick, to swing the voters back around....
dam dam dam...
my gray hairs are increasing in numbers
and Bush is not helping !

*the byline reads:
" His
[presidents] speeches on security this week signal that Republicans will use the terrorism issue for the third election in a row."

THE BEST: have to try it
imagelabeler .....very addicting

by google

o you have to come up with label for images
o you get points if someone else also gives it the same label

o that someone else is looking at the image at the same time
o you don’t know what they are entering

o each time you match, a new image comes up

o there is a time limit , so you have to fire away to get matches

google gets better labels out of the deal

We have ignored the Kurds, but it shall also boil over. (see following stories) There is a mounting call for independence. Turkey is very worried. We should be too. We screw the Kurds once before, they rightfully will only trust the US as far as they need the US. What was GWB thinking? What Should we do....damned if I know...

Story one - Open unrest of Kurds in Turkey

Two people have been killed in a bomb explosion at an outdoor cafe in south-east Turkey, police say. At least seven people were injured in the blast, which hit the tea garden in the town of Catak in Van province, near the border with Iran. It follows a series of bombings in Turkish resorts and Istanbul last week in which at least three people died.
