No candy today, kids

Gee, what do you know? Al Qaeda attacks Arabs too! But the secretary of the "Organization of the Islamic Conference" said the attacks in Riyadh on the living quarters of foreign workers from Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan and other Arab countries "harmed the image of Muslims and Islam. " Right. Image for whom? The American Street? You guys blew that so long ago it isn't funny. So for whom are these apologists for murderers performing now? Better get those Bush t-shirts while you can!!
Good one
Never thought I'd say this in my days of fanatic military-hating during Vietnam, but I now do understand and appreciate everything the US soldiers are doing over there in Iraq. As usual, Mark Steyn says it best:
In our time, mass slaughter occurs only in places where the West refuses to act - in the Sudan or North Korea - or acts only under the contemptible and corrupting rules of UN "peacekeeping", as at Srebrenica. In Afghanistan and Iraq and elsewhere, technological advantage changes the moral calculus: it makes war the least worst option, the moral choice. At the 11th hour of the 11th day, we should remember those who died in the Great War, but recognise that it could never be "the war to end all wars" and never should.
