Apparently the Algerians have enough hubris to tick off al-Qaeda now. That’s why they’re ticked off with us right? So it only makes sense. Why else would they want to bomb Algeria?
Oh – yeah maybe it’s because al-qaeda has figured out that when you back down easily the target on your back is easier to find!
He (Prime Minister Abdelaziz Belkhadem ) called the attack a “betrayal” of an amnesty program that has resulted in the release of hundreds of insurgents from prison in an attempt to bring peace to the war-torn nation.
This story concerning the emails in the administration concerning the attorney scandal made me laugh.
I haven’t been following closely, so forgive any lapses of intelligence.
Basically it seems that the administration is getting investigated because they fired some US Attorneys for political reasons.
This story notes that the investigators now have come across missing emails that they think should be within in the saved White House emails. (deleting them would have been illegal) Instead they were deleted because they were on the RNC emails which were ok to delete.
So the investigation really should be complete!!! Clearly the attorneys got fired for political reasons because their firing was discussed over political and not administrative channels. Right? LOL
Who is this man and how does he sleep at night with so many conflicting ideas going through his brain?
From todays Washington Post Senator Biden himself writes an op-ed. He wants a “new plan” in Iraq and is pushing for Federalism.
I cannot guarantee that my plan for Iraq (detailed at http://www.planforiraq.com) will work. But I can guarantee that the course we’re on — the course that a man I admire, John McCain, urges us to continue — is a road to nowhere.
And it’s a road to nowhere because there is no trust in the Iraqi govt and none coming up.
Ok – it’s good to have ideas. Now he’s also calling for military force in Darfur.
”Let’s stop the bleeding,” Biden said. ”I think it’s a moral imperative.”
So we go in and start up yet another road to nowhere????
Does he think somehow that the people in Sudan are in support of the govt there so things will go smoother? It looks more to me like he wants to go ahead, partition Iraq because we’re not supported, and then go directly to Darfur and start “protecting” and getting ourselves killed for another group of downtrodden.
THEN once we’ve stopped the immediate problem we can bog ourselves down while the universe talks of how we’re there for the oil. Or does he plan on going in immediately and “partioning” Darfur off from Sudan because that will work.
Biden, of Delaware, and other senators expressed impatience with the lack of progress on Darfur four years after civil strife broke out between Arab and black tribes in the western Sudanese region.
Biden is impatient. Hm – never would have guessed. I apologize for my incoherence this morning but this I just don’t get. And both stories are out on the same day. Often there’s a lapse so my paradigms don’t have to collide quite as forcefully!
