August is a strange month with shifted days

I'm off to the gym shortly, and then when I return I'll have to go into high gear for a few days to make sure everything is done before I leave… Anyway, an in the news update follows.

Five US soldiers were killed by guerrilla attacks this weekend as the death count contiunues to escalate (more) — but don't talk about these deaths, even if they're family… “loose lips sink ships” (more). Anyway, no worries about those five dead Americans — five civilians got killed in return (more). Oh wait, that means more terrorism (more) and guerrilla attacks (more). Ooops. Bang. Three more civilians dead (more).

Anyway, according to Wolfowitz, Americans don't care when their sons are daughters are killed in Iraq (more)… BOOM (more). Sorry, ignore that. You know it's “worth it”, right (more)? Ca-ching (more)!

Canadians - A bunch of pot-smoking, pinko, wimp nancy boys who marry their best friends and refuse to obey orders from the Great White Father in Washington. (more)

On one side you've got the liars and crooks (more), and the other side that small number with a semblance of honor left over (more)… it's quite fascinating to watch who chooses which side. And while I'm glad to see Rice go down for her treason (more), in some ways I feel worse that they're forcing their “easy target” (ie. a double political minority — black and a woman) to take the fall.

And you've got to love crazy old philanthropists; this full page ad (more) is being run by George Soros, including the following quotes:

"Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us."

Vice President Dick Cheney,
Speech to VFW National Convention,
August 26, 2002

"The evidence indicates that Iraq is reconstituting its nuclear weapons program."

President George W. Bush,
Cincinnati, Ohio,
October 7, 2002

"Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent."

President George W. Bush,
The State of the Union Address,
January 28, 2003

Anyway, North Korea says its getting ready to actually start testing nuclear bombs (more) — if that happens, things will really get crazy, because I think much of the world assumes that North Korea is bluffing on this whole nuke issue. Oh, and don't forget — just like al Qaeda, Saddam Hussein, and just about every other “problem” that the US is facing right now, guess who made North Korea (more)?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
