got Wildly Unsubstantiated Speculations!!!!

A rocket struck the U.S. Embassy early Friday, exploding inside the modern, glass-fronted building and shattering hopes that Greece's leftist anti-American militant networks had been dismantled.

Greek authorities said the attack, which caused no injuries, was probably carried out by a domestic terrorist group.

The small anti-tank missile, fired from across a six-lane boulevard, narrowly missed the large blue-and-white U.S. seal on the embassy's facade and the ambassador's office, and pierced the building above the front entrance shortly before 6 a.m. It damaged a third-floor bathroom and shattered windows in nearby buildings.

"There were no injuries and very minimal damage," U.S. Ambassador Charles Ries said outside the embassy.

[ cf Blast at U.S. Embassy Called 'Terrorism' ( emphasis mine )]
Talk About The Blind Leap Of Faith!!!!!!

Based upon the scoring criterion in Iraq, this does not even make it into the DOD Data base of things that went bump in the dark!!! So why should we allow the Greeks some special accounting Rules like they were suddenly the New Aurther Anderson Setting Up The Self Referential Income/Deficiet/Issue Accounts for Enron???

HUM????

Just because someone misses a target with an ATAGM ( Anti-Tank, Almost-Guided, Missile ) doesn't mean that it was another case of radical left wing extremists advocating Jeffersonian Democracy.
The attack recalled the anti-capitalist and anti-American violence of past decades, which included the death of a CIA station chief and other American military and embassy officials, as well as a failed bomb attack against the U.S. Embassy in 1996.

Hum...

Would this be the wrong time to talk about why you do not hire the same house as the last CIA station chief? Or why you do NOT want to be the loser in "spot the CIA/KGB" championship being played by the local high school teams.... OR.... Why tradecraft SHOULD be taken seriously....

Or would that be, like, way so last millenium....

got Dialog?

Why do those Evil Liberal Media Meat Puppet FAIL to take Great Leader's Word for what the plain spoken leader says and means:
In his speech Wednesday night, Bush promised that troops would "interrupt the flow of support from Iran and Syria" and "destroy the networks providing advanced weaponry and training to our enemies in Iraq."

The raid occurred before Bush's address.

The language of his speech contrasts with a call by the Iraq Study Group to open negotiations with Iran and Syria.

On Thursday, Iraqi government spokesman Ali Dabbagh urged the United States to repair relations with Iran and Syria, saying "we pay the price for the tension."

In comments unrelated to Thursday's raid, Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said it was "instructive" that previous raids against arms suppliers had resulted in the detention of Iranians.

[ cf U.S. forces detain 6 Iranian envoys ( emphasis mine )]
Duh....

Would this be the totally wrongest time to remind americans that the president has been clear that all american Embassy and Consulates are now merely staging area for Special Operations Forces... So of course all embassy and consulates, and their staffs, are perfectly legitimate targets, since there is no reason to believe anyone is still all hung up on that failed pre-911 cultural malaise in which law was considered binding upon the Great War Lord^H^H^H^H President!!!!

So of course it is clear that Great Leader IS leading the dialog with Iran and Syria!!!

They can become christian vassals of the Great Holy Crusader!!! Or be crushed under the Godliness of The Inquisition as the Holy Crusade Crusades Crusadingly!!!! Americans do recall that the Great Leader DID take up the cross to lead this crusade....

Or would this also be a bad time to remind americans about that part of the whole over all
You Are Either With US!!!
Or YOU Are Against US!!!!!
so of course the negotiations are not the sort of soft ball fluff that the Leftist Leaning Evil Demonic Nancy Pelosi Vodoo Zombie Dust Bunnies Of Despair might wish to engage in prior to their Kapitulationist Appeaser Cut And Running, but the NATIONS is IN A TIME of
transfering the tax liability Unto the Unborn!!!
And All MUST OBEY THE DIVINE WILL!!! And the Clear And COMPELLING MANDATE of the Argument From Intelligent Design, IN A BLUE DRESS!!!!

Or those Iranian Flying Saucers will return!!!

So why can't the Evil Liberal Media MeatPuppets accept that the whole world has changed and that Great Leader is GREAT!!!

got More Flag Wavinger Than Thou....

Wow!!! When the VOCHAS reach out and hope that the power of the state will keep on protecting them:
Just months after legislators in Louisiana and Oklahoma voted to outlaw the unauthorized use of the names and images of U.S. soldiers on anti-war merchandise, representatives of those two states have separately introduced new legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives that would outlaw such use on merchandise across the nation.

Dan Frazier, the owner of CarryaBigSticker, says the legislation directly targets some of his merchandise. His Flagstaff, Ariz. company mostly sells anti-war and anti-Bush bumper stickers via the Internet. In June of 2005, his company introduced a T-shirt listing the names of about 1,700 U.S. troops who had died in Iraq. The list of names covers the front and the back of the shirt. Overlaid on the names of the fallen troops are the words "Bush Lied," and on the back, "They Died." The company also sells a similar magnetic vehicle sign (discontinued).

[ cf Federal Legislation to Ban Certain Anti-War Merchandise Targets Flagstaff Entrepreneur ]
You REALLY do want to read the rest of the comedic moments that go with this crisis....

The excuse here from last summer about why it should be illegal to list the names of those who died in the current "Compensating For Having Run Away From That Vietnam Thingie" is just way too comical... Makes one wonder if the same would be true for the Pro-Patria Brigade, when they are shilling products, with the flag wrapped around them, and all of that Smack about our "honored Dead"....

Ah Yes... and it should surprise anyone that Texas is Hopping On This Anti-Free Market, Anti-Free Speach, play acting about the need to protect those who are hiding from the names of those who died for their desperate domestic political football....

Go Team Go!!!! Get us that next rack of some 92,000 spare boots to keep on showing the world that we are so willing to go on going on, as long as there is an on to go....

Win Team Win!!!

And most importantly, we are all like waiting to see the half time show, since those are all relly cool and groovy and like everyone loves the baton twirlers, and the marching bands, and the Cheerleaders Cheering competition, why, gosh, golly, isn't it Oh! What a Lovely War and all that Jazz....

But most of all, I am soooo waiting for the National VOCHAS Blue Dress Championship Show Off!!!
yellow_elephant

why Ever Would They???

Wow!!! Watching the wankers who are hiding out in America, hoping that as VOCHAS they will never be obliged to be held accountable for the positions that they once held, and then ran away from, just makes me feel all warm and happy.... Since, well, Gosh....

One of the Ugly questions a lot of us once wondered about, back in the 'cold war era', was how many of these defeatists lip flappers would be countable, SHOULD we actually need to defend the USofA.... and basically it appears that ZERO is still the biggest non-negative integer - since, well, to be technical, the number of them who wind up working for Stasi, in some estimates IS a negative value....

How come it is so hard for folks who are hiding here in america, hoping never to be held accountable, that there are actual folks who would be, well, gosh, bad people, who would be a part of an armed insurgency against an Occupying Force In The United States Of America....

So if there are actual americans who would actually do this, why is it so hard for these defeatist cut and runners to not get it that there may well be not only Iraqi, but Iranian, Somalian, and gosh, maybe persons in other countries, where their commitment to opposing any Occupation Force that invades their homeland would be as strong as our American Commitment to such an Occupation.....

Or has that really always been the hard part for the VOCHAS, and the rest of the FauxNewsFanClub???? They just do not get it that some folks have to do more than simply say "ditto" on the talk show radio dial-in....

What EVER will it take to help the VOCHAS get it that sometimes one has to actually live out what one believes and not merely talk about it??? That at times a Man REALLY does have to do what has to be done. Not merely publish more books about how it might have been if it had been some other way than it was....

and why do the defeatists like to call it Club Gitmo have they really decided that they hate america, they hate american constitutional law, Or what??? Why exactly do these folks hate those of us who have actually served in the american armed forces to DEFEND that Constitution???? What is it about 'dittoheads' that they so do not want to be honest about their poseur posture???

Where I do agree with Peter Mulhern is his ending line
We desperately need to do better.
[ cf Bush's Way Forward ]
Since GOSH DUDE, you really, really REALLY do need to do better....

Like maybe find a country where the dictatorship is more to your liking...

When defeatists like Peter Mulhern say
Our troops will have less restrictive Rules of Engagement. This is encouraging, but the president didn't tell us much about precisely how the ROE in Iraq will change.
(op Cit)
why don't they step up to the page and be honest with their readers, and say that now that America has abandoned american law, that simply slaughtering civilians should be as acceptable as simply holding hostages, and all the other things that use to be considered WAR CRIMES back in a time when american law was the law for americans...

Come On Great Fox Pundit, be Bold!! be Brave!!! Be at least as heroic with other people's dead bodies as you can be....

fight the good fight...

Ok, so I have DODGED the iPhone issue, and therefore offer up my Support for New Apple iPhone - is it deaf-friendly? from the deaf-teach blog....

DO NOT go and read kosmonaut photo blog as it may be distracting, unless you have the professional, and technical training to appreciated proper photographs....

Ok, so I soooo can not avoid the whine here.....

What if americans were being productive, rather than merely play acting about ThatWarLikeThingiePooh....

And the Problem Here Is What Again???

"Of what I did, nothing is wrong so I didn't anticipate anything of course," Manhart said Thursday of the pictorial. "I didn't do anything wrong so I didn't think it would be a major issue."
...
"This staff sergeant's alleged action does not meet the high standards we expect of our airmen, nor does it comply with the Air Force's core values of integrity, service before self, and excellence in all we do. It is not representative of the many thousands of outstanding airmen who serve in the U.S. Air Force today," Balladares said, reading a statement.
...
Manhart said she didn't see the magazine as an escape from the military. She also said she is completely committed to her job.

"I've proven myself. ... They picked me to train our future airmen of the world," she said. "They picked me to train these individuals so if they elect to say I don't have (integrity) then that's their opinion."

Playboy magazine spokeswoman Theresa Hennessey said two active-duty women have posed nude in Playboy in the past. Both were in the Navy, she said.

One, Sherry Lynne White, was discharged in July 2000 after posing nude for the magazine. She had been scheduled to be released from duty that October.

Another, Frederica Spilman, received an honorable discharge, which she had sought before posing, and a letter expressing the Navy's dismay less than a week after the June 1998 issue hit newsstands.

Spilman appeared in the magazine wearing opened flight jackets, camouflage lingerie and dog tags. The six-page pictorial, under the heading "Fly Girl," also included pictures of Spilman in her Navy uniform and flight suit.

Hum...

Is it me, or is there a fundamental ISSUE with 'nonMale' "airmen" as one of those, uh, "oxymoronic" notions....

For our Parasite Civilian Friends, do try to remember, that "soldier, sailor, marine" are gender neutral terms....

What adds the Tasty Golden Brown, Chef Antoine's Super Special Sauce, on this "burnt to perfection" moment, is the comedy that our VOCHAS pro-war friends are subtly advocating restoring the slaughtering of civilians, as a part of enhancing the "collalteral damage", and now must deal with the reality that the US Military is letting Perfectly Good Combat Personnel Loose, from a Billet that the VOCHAS were NOT filling, in these DESPERATE TIMES WHEN WE NEED MORE COMBAT BOOTS....

and for what reason???

For showing up buck assed naked in some publication....

WOW!!! I soooooo love the VOCHAS, as they are all that they can ever be....

Information Management Issues....

Folks,

Many americans in our overly worked, parrallel proceessing, multi-tasking world, can get confused as to which thread of consciousness is currently cognizant of it's own existence..... So BE FOR WARNED!!! some times the cosmos HAS no sense of Humor!!!!

Take for instance:
The research, at Oregon State University in the city of Corvallis and at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, has caused an outcry. Martina Navratilova, the lesbian tennis player who won Wimbledon nine times, and scientists and gay rights campaigners in Britain have called for the project to be abandoned.

Navratilova defended the “right” of sheep to be gay. She said: “How can it be that in the year 2006 a major university would host such homophobic and cruel experiments?” She said gay men and lesbians would be “deeply offended” by the social implications of the tests.

But the researchers argue that the work is valid, shedding light on the “broad question” of what determines sexual orientation. They insist the work is not aimed at “curing” homosexuality.

[ cf Science told: hands off gay sheep ]
meanwhile this fresh in from the Freak Show Types:
Larry Weald returned home yesterday to a scene of chaos in his refrigerator.
"It was as if someone had taken a scalpel to the takeout box," Weald said of his mutilated order of steamed tofu. Neighboring containers of soy sauce and low-calorie dressing were unharassed.

Police investigation of the refrigerator uncovered heightened levels of radiation. "My pocket sandwiches had fully cooked in the freezer compartment," Weald said.

"Whatever did this must have come through the walls," said Weald.

Police confirm that Weald's security system, deadbolt, and chain lock functioned perfectly throughout the night of the mutilation.

[ cf Tofu Mutilations Blamed on Aliens from Vega ]
One of these is alledged to be serious....

But in our modern era, can you really be sure????

I mean can you be sure enough about your position that you are not personally responsible for the Iranian FLying Saucers coming back...

So remember, no matter what happens, if there is possible chance that any of your information could be proof prositive of the Satanic Nancy Pelosi Evil Voodoo Zombie Dust Bunnies Of Despair, then it is YOUR DUTY!!! Your God Given Patriotic Duty to start telling the Super Secret Space Alien Detention Facility Folks were to start their sweeps of the Evil Aliens, many of whom are here illegally, and using forged or stolen identies, and in some case stolen skin sacks, and taking away high paying jobs from needy americans, who will also get stuck standing in line at the Cinema and Other Facilities where the Evil SPACE ALIENS are engaged in Brain Wave Sucking Activities on The Special Orders Of Al-Qaeda!!!!

So BE AFRAID!!!!!!

THEY COULD BE OUT THERE!!!!!!

AND THEY COULD BE TRYING TO SUCK OUT YOUR BRAIN WAVES!!!!!

and in a blue dress....
