I'm glad Obama knows exactly who he is.

BTW, I also envy how quickly you tend to buy into any spin that erupts out of the White House on such a regular basis. :-)

Romeo, heh, yep, bring up Rezko or Obama's pastor when you've got nothing of substance to bash him for.

America will be far, fgar better off under President Obama.

Clinton knows her luck is running out (she lost Joe Andrew and only gained 3 SuperD's this week compared to Obama scoring 8, and last time I checked, Obama is only 19 or so behind her).

And where's John McWho?

Um. that's still not going to stop the Republican party you so ardently support from being totally buried in Novemeber.

Romeo - "Heh, 1,008 out of what, 300,000,000? If anyone believes that number represents the masses, they are fooling themselves."

But Romeo, most of your countrymen bought into Bush's lies about the WMD. What makes you think they won't believe the polls? :-)

News Just In:

[www.cnn.com] "Bush disapproval rating highest on record - "A new poll suggests President Bush is the most unpopular president in modern American history. The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey indicates that 71 percent of the American public disapprove of how Bush is handling his job."

ha ha ha!! This proves all us 'Lefties' were right all along!! LOL!

This is awesome news for the Democratic party and will make it even easier for Obama to walk into the Oval Office as President come Janauary 2009.

it will make any bleatings from the Extremist Right even funnier to read.

I'm loving this - every minute of it.

Obama looks set to get the Democratic party nod, and then he'll be up against a geriatric divorcee who can't seem to decide whether he is for or against Bush's tax cuts, or whether he is for fighting climate change or for implementing a gas tax holiday which will...um...go directly against his claim to fight climate change.

And McCain supporters like redacted and SuperLib must still be smarting that their only man left standing wasn't even their 1st, 2nd, or 3rd choice for Republican candidate.

Bring. It. On!

Zaphod - problem is that some people look at the war in Iraq as if it is occurring in a fish bowl, without looking at the fuller picture, which, unfortunately includes the faultering U.S. economy.

What would you rather have - a small scale civil war in the ME, or a U.S. economy in depression that will affect the entire global economy??

"She said what is important now is “how the president would describe the fight today. It’s been a very tough month in Iraq, but we are taking the fight to the enemy.”"

The President has been describing the fight for 5 long years and it's still not working. In fact, he has botched his descriptions - not to mention strategy - of the fight so badly that more than 70% of Americans believe their country is on the "wrong track" in Iraq.

But at least Americans can rest assured that their Government is "taking the fight to the enemy" while simultaneously enriching oil industry fat cats, emboldening the enemy in Iraq, Iran, Syria, North Korea, China and Russia, and vaporizing any money that could be used for Americans' futures, schools, education, health programs and Social Security at the burn rate of $12-15 billion a month for negligible return to ordinary hard-working Americans at home.

Oh, and burning out America's middle class.

Mission Accomplished!

Wow, this is so sad.

"The child’s father was at work when the murder occurred."

My wife gave birth 2 months ago and I'm taking paternity leave (mornings), primarily so my wife and I can share child-raising tasks (partly so she doesn't get overly stressed and snap, like the woman in this article did), and (selfishly :-) so I can actually be there to watch our daughter grow.

I can't imagine why the above Mum didn't talk about her frustrations with her hubby, but I think a big part of the reason why more and more attacks and murders like this are happening in Japan IS because Dads are usually working nutjob hours and Mums are getting stressed out to the hilt, in no small part because hubby just isn't there.

Add to that the ongoing pressure to conform and fit in, and a whole host of other reasons.

If anyone is interested, I've never been happier, & marital relations have never been better.

Moral? IF you (as a Dad) can get time at home after a kiddo is born - DO IT.

For everyone's sake.

vor - "If you truly are concerned with the Iraqi people...."

You see the funny thing is, the people who say things like this really don't give a toss about ordinary Iraqis.

They only say they do to cover the fact that every other argument and justification they have for wanting America to remain in Iraq has been totally nuked.

redacted - "Condi Rice is in his kitchen and laughing at him. She called him a coward."

you're right, she did call him a coward. Right after she bravely slinked into Iraq under cover of the dead of night in a bold and inspiring chimney-hopping midnight helicoptor run from an unnannouced flight on an unscheduled plane that took off at an unspecified time from an unknown U.S. airbase.

Intriguingly, that's almost as "brave" as you are, perched behind your PC, bravely firing off "patriotic" posts from behind a bold and daring handle name. LOL!

redacted - "foreign observers of our Great Experiment"

Last week you near nuked your credibility by implying climate change wasn't much of a threat.

Today, you label an uncalled for war in which close on a million, probably more, innocent people have been killed or had their lives ruined, a "Great Experiment"?

No doubt you'll next claim America had some kind of "moral authority" to "free" Iraqis...

Hole, stop digging, you probably get my drift.

Posted in: Rice, in Baghdad, calls al-Sadr coward See in context

redacted - you would have a stronger argument if your base assumption was even remotely close to reality.

You mentioned the "liberation of Iraq."

If, by liberation, you mean -

Iraqi's dying at a faster rate under U.S. occupation than they were under Saddam. the spectre of thousands more dying slow and painful deaths due to the thousands of tons of DU that has been pumped into their country by your country's military. the further destruction of their country's infrastructure. the displacemnt of more than 4 million of their people (and many of the ones that your Govt. has heralded as returning are only coming back because they have been kicked out of the countries they went to.) the segregation and walling off of many Iraqi communities, and a whole lot more.

All for what?

to avenge 9/11? to stop Saddam's WMD program that..um.....didn't exist due to the fact the poison gases your Govt. sold him reached their use by date just after Gulf War I?

[Sezwho] - "But that wouldn't have anything to do with the assertion that directing a conflict from a foreign venue is equivalent to cowardice."

[redacted] - It's your assertion. And it's pretty revealing. For one who claims to be American..."

What is your point? Patriotic Americans know this war is wrong and they see the negative effects it is having on their lives, families and the U.S. economy.

If things are going swimmingly, why is Bush's job approval ratings - of the war and of the economy - in the toilet?

And why are Condi and other top ranked U.S. officials slinking into Iraq in the dead of night while the Iranian President gets a red carpet welcome for a trip announced more than a month in advance?

It's the attitudes of AINO's (Americans In Name Only) like yourself that are in no small way responsible for the continuing fiasco we see in Iraq.

dano2002 - "First of all, the only people who listen to this guy are the people who live in the slums. He is the leader of the poor who are the least educated people in Iraq. how hard is it to brain wash kids? By the way, i have the same disdain for Republicans who voted for Bush."

I ditto that last comment. It's more than clear that Americans (most of them in name only) who really should exercise their gray matter are the ones who are still backing Bush/the war.

In fact, the blind, unthinking support from these war supporters is probably one of the only reasons why top ranks like Condi Rice are STILL sneaking into Iraq in the dead of night, 5 years after the war began.

But if you ask these same war supporters to front up support the war either personally or financially and they'll run and hide in their basements.

What was that word Condi used again?...was it "C-o-w-a-r-d?"

Checking....yeah it is!

Skipthesong - thanks for your reply.

"your question to us is quite obviously the same question to you. What really have you done?"

I am against this war and therefore see zero reason why I should support it in any shape or form.

"Are they themselves any different from the terrorists they claim to be against?" So what are you saying? Who are the terrorists and who is not. Are you saying that the fanatics of Islam are not?"

I am pointing out that Cheney and co. are totally hypocritical in their position. They imply they have a greater moral standing than the people they are fighting; they state their fight is a 'just cause' (even name operations after it) and they propage mistruths, untruths and everything inbetween.

All after they have wantonly invaded a sovereign nation that wasn't a threat, had no connection to 9/11, fire and drop thousands of tonnes of DU into Iraq (that will be killing Iraqis and Americans and their kids for years), kill innocents, and now - torture.

The bad guys do some of that too except they don't poison people with DU.

Posted in: Cheney, other top officials OK'd harsh interrogation techniques See in context

Heh, I'm guessing that dano2002, redacted, Sarge, etc. and all the other JT posters who embrace torture haven't actually been within 1,000 miles of the Iraq or Afghanistan battle spaces, and I also bet they don't contribute in any meaningful way at all to fighting the "War on Terror."

Except, of course, frantically typing insults on their PCs, which, let me be the first to admit, they are exceptional at :-

If I am off base here, please tell me what you have done and how you have contributed to your country's fight against terrorism.

Cheney and co. are only making things worse by dragging a once proud America down to below gutter level by authorizing torture.

Are they themselves any different from the terrorists they claim to be against?

No, Cheney and co. are one and the same with the terrorists.

It is going to take years for America to get over this.

When the bad guys want new recruits, all they'll have to do is hold up a picture of the inmate abuse at Gitmo, or mention that the U.S. tortures and abuses prisoners, (the vast majority of whom have not had any charges successfully laid against them), or mention the hatred and angst of Americans like dano2002, redacted, Sarge, etc., and they'll have new recruits signing up in droves.

It's funny - dano2002, redacted, Sarge, etc. STILL don't understand that they themselves are leading to the inciting of even more violence against their own people.

Heh, their attitude is almost as dumb as punching yourself in the head repeatedly for 6 years. :-)

A question for dano2002, redacted, Sarge, etc. and all the other JT posters who embrace torture -

If you were captured by the Taliban or some other terrorist group, strapped to a board and waterboarded to within an inch of your life, would you complain?

Just curious.
