The War on Terror -
These liberals just don't get it.
A quote from the Boston Globe:
"President Bush said with no hint of shame, "We've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved in September the 11th." ... To date, 304 American soldiers and thousands of Iraqi soldiers and civilians are dead because the White House riled up Americans into a rash blurring of the facts until they could no longer distinguish Sept. 11 from Saddam ... Now Bush comes clean. There is no link between Saddam and 9/11. There is no evidence that Iraq "planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001." Coming clean only uncovers the dirt. The links were a lie. The invasion was based on no principles whatsoever."
I'll break it down:
"President Bush said with no hint of shame, "We've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved in September the 11th."
And why should he say that with shame? He's never said otherwise. I defy you to quote it. Bush claimed that Iraq had an illegal weapons of mass destruction infrastructure and that there was a possibilty for Saddam Hussein to distribute these weapons to terrorists. He never claimed that he did deliver these weapons to terrorists.
"To date, 304 American soldiers and thousands of Iraqi soldiers and civilians are dead..."
I don't mean to belittle the men and women who've lost their lives in this conflict, but we're worried about 304? Give me a break. When we take a look at other wars we've been in, Vietnam and World War II quickly come to mind.
Vietnam: 58,169 dead/MIA
World War II: 56,428 dead/MIA
Iraq is hardly the quagmire they make it out to be.
"...because the White House riled up Americans into a rash blurring of the facts until they could no longer distinguish Sept. 11 from Saddam"
Who did this? The White House? I think not. The liberal media has been twisting and contorting the news about this conflict since it began. If you had ever once listened to one of Donald Rumsfeld's press addresses, you'd see that. The Bush administration has been extremely clear in saying (and repeating over and over) that we are entering a new kind of war: the war on terrorism. They have said that this war on terrorism will be very long and hard. Destroying the Taliban was the first step in ridding the world of terrorism, taking Saddam Hussein out of power was the second. If Osama binLaden is a terrorist, Hussein is one as well.
"Now Bush comes clean."
Bush has been clean. (Is it me or did that sound bad?) He's never wavered from his original statements.
"There is no link between Saddam and 9/11. There is no evidence that Iraq "planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001." "
We've established this already... you're only helping my argument.
"Coming clean only uncovers the dirt. The links were a lie."
Well, I'd have to agree with this. These "links" were a lie. Seeing as these "links" were not claimed by the Bush administration, someone else (read: The Boston Globe) must be lying.
"The invasion was based on no principles whatsoever."
I beg to differ. If getting a madman whose regime has killed thousands of his own innocent civilians and used weapons of mass destruction on his neighbors for his hunger for oil out of power is not based on principles, I don't know what is. And whadday know? Freeing millions of Iraqis was a result of it.

So We Removed Hussein Without The U.N.'s Full Support -
Whoopdy-doo daa. It's not like the U.N. was going to get anything accomplished. How many resolutions did they draw up for Hussein? It's been about 13 years now since he invaded Quwait. 13 YEARS!!!
A quote from The Smirking Chimp:
"President George Bush was accused at the United Nations yesterday of undermining the system of multilateral security by going to war in Iraq without authorisation from the Security Council.
The criticism was led by the French President, Jacques Chirac, who used the annual General Assembly of the UN, the first time world leaders had gathered in New York since the invasion of Iraq, to blame Mr Bush for the crisis of confidence facing the world body. By extension his criticism was also directed at Tony Blair, who did not attend.
"The war, launched without the authorisation of the Security Council, shook the multilateral system," M. Chirac said. "The UN has just been through one of the most grave crises in its history."
M. Chirac's sentiments were echoed by Kofi Annan, the UN secretary general, who warned that pre-emptive unilateral military action without the authorisation of the UN risked a move to the law of the jungle."
Chirac is a sniveling, sleazy, untrustworthy, shady, crooked, immoral, corrupt weasel. We did not remove Saddam unilaterally. He even admits that Britainhelped us. Who is he fooling? Why isn't he accusing Spain, Denmark, Canada, Portugal, Thailand, The Phillipines, and Norway of the same charges?
This whole thing is laughable.

Wesley Clark -
Wesley Clark is an idiot.
Do you really think he'd be a good president? If he was, he may at least try to continue the work that George Bush has been doing in the middle east.

Mirrodin Release -
As some of you may know, (.... okay... who am I fooling? I just started this stupid blog a week ago) I am addicted to the finest card game ever made; Magic: The Gathering. Call me a dweeb, but have you played it? It's absolutely phenomenal. I'm not going to try to describe it.... if you've played it, you're probably hooked and this paragraph is completely meaningless to you, so skip to the next one. If you haven't played it... find a buddy who has never played before and go at it. I hate to tell you to not read the rest of this post, though... I'd hate to deprive you of my witty banter.
Anywhoo... the new expansion, Mirrodin, is coming out at the end of next week. I'm friggin' excited. If you haven't seen the spoiler yet, go here. I, for one, am choosing to not look at the spoiler so as to be surprised when I open my box of boosters. I have, however, seen numerous card previews on MagicTheGathering.com and, I must say, am shocked at myself for liking the idea of an artifact-heavy set. I wasn't too pleased to learn that Onslaught was the "Creature Set", and when I found out that the hosed blue again, I can't say I wasn't miffed.
In Mirrodin, however, it seems blue may be making a comeback (thank God). Isochron Scepter and Vedalken Archmage seem impressive, to say the least. Imprint seems to get more and more wicked the more I think about it. Can we say "Brain Freeze" or "Orim's Chant" on the Scepter? Entwine could be interesting, and Equipment is a great idea.
Damnit, George! -
Okay, Mr. Bush. You're a great man. You've freed millions of Iraqis from the terrible reign of a madman. You've destroyed an orgnized terrorist group. Who knows how many innocent lives you've saved by taking the lives of these vile fiends? You're turning our economy around, refunding some of our tax money, beefing up security throughout the nation, and doing an exemplary job in re-establishing Iraq's government. But why do you have to take Diane Sykes from us?
A reliable local source tells that Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Diane Sykes has been promoted to the Federal Court of Appeals, the second highest court in the nation. This means that our Governor, Gray Dav... err... ...I mean Jim Doyle will be appointing some leftist into her seat in the state's Supreme Court. She is an outstanding conservative woman and deserves her new job, but I hate to see one less right-winger in Wisconsin's Supreme Court.
I suppose that this will be better in the long run, seeing as her new position will be for life.

For all you old-schoolers, check that one out.
I don't get it. Why is global warming the first thing that leaps into everyone's mind when something like this comes up? Three weeks of 90 degree weather... must be global warming. Heat wave in Europe... must be global warming. Record-breaking snowfall in New York last February... must be global warming. Car bomb in Israel... must be global warming.
What makes us so sure that these things didn't die of natural causes? Look at the picture! Maybe the fact that it's SLICED IN HALF had something to do with it croaking.

OK, I figured it out. I've learned my lesson - use anivirus software.
So I spent a good 2 hours last night getting rid of this Trojan Horse that was taking over my internet surfing. What a load of frog dung.
