Rick,
The Sunni gained power in Iraq the same way as AQ does,killing and intimidation,birds of a feather so to speak.Why have a dog and bark yourself?

Rick Ballard

Peter,

True, but the oily princes in Riyadh had wound up with a plethora of "meddlesome priests" by 1990 (including Saddam). Now all they have to worry about are annoying Persians - and they're working on that one.

Inbreeding will still finish 'em off. By and by, to be sure, but a "family pole" just isn't as strong as a "family tree".

PeterUK

If the meddlesomes had not been more pliant and less mouth frothing,the West would have probably let them bump the OPs off.

Rick Ballard

OT,

The Beavis and Buttslapper saga has come to an agreeable end. The only thing dumber than a 13 year old boy is a 14 year old boy - or a DA.

Rick,

Good lord. Somebody needs their butts spanked. I can only imagine what the principal of my school would have done had that happened in the era I attended. And don't even get me started about the punishment at home for getting into trouble at school. Sheesh.

Rick Ballard

Sue,

A 13 year old boy can be a true marvel of stupidity (you saw the Jackass reference?), spanking won't cut it (I think 7-8 is the effective cut off on that) but isolation coupled with work does a fair job. Instead, the DA filed felony charges that would have saddled those two with sex offender status - for the rest of their lives.

What is a bit sad is that there was no "hero" involved, bouncing the tweaks off of lockers. It wouldn't have taken administrative intervention to straighten those two dweebs out when I was in junior high.

The one on the right has the makings of "Important Hair"?

Does anyone know why Bush is preparing to punish the Yucatanians?

Are they closet Democrats?

Bill in AZ

Yucatan? Rove is prolly running the hurricane machine since Bush is on "vacation". His hand slipped while thinking about all the things he could be doing besides answering idiotic contempt of congress nonsense by morons like leaky leahy.

Rick Ballard

I dunno, Bill. Rove always runs the hurricanes. I figure this might be a mockup for the Cat 6 "Demobuster" that he's selling for the '08 election. It will hover off the east coast with a storm track that'll scare every Blue from Boston to Philadelphia into motel rooms in Indiana on election day.

Bipartisan statement by Carl Levin (W)easel - MI and John Warner (W)easel/2nd class VA

We believe that the recent high-level meetings among Iraqi political leaders could be the last chance for this government to solve the Iraqi political crisis, and should it fail, we believe, the Iraqi Council of Representatives and the Iraqi people need to judge the Government of Iraq’s record and determine what actions should be taken -- consistent with the Iraqi Constitution -- to form a true unity government to meet those responsibilities.

It's midnight, Maliki, and the coach just turned into a pumpkin.

Jane

Given Carl Levin's record on this war, he is hardly credible.

hit and run

Paddling worked quite effectively in my jr high - in the athletic dept. The fear of a big burly coach, taking you into the showers, making you drop your drawers and taking a good swing at your behind with a well-worn, finely-tuned instrument of pain, while everyone gathered around clamoring to see the well-worn, finely-tuned event of shame (the more important component) was a very good means of dissuasion.

For the most part, you would see one or two a year and that was enough to keep everyone on their p's and q's and minding their toes, or whatever. Though, there was occasionally the particularly adventuresome young lad who seemed to relish the attention given by such a spectacle.

No. That wasn't me. And I resent you asking.

And yes, I know that such practices could in no way still be used today.

Neo

The Joint Inquiry charged that US policymakers had wanted Usama Bin Ladin killed as early as August 1998 and believed CIA personnel understood that. However, the government had not removed the ban on assassination and did not provide clear direction or authorization for CIA to kill Bin Ladin or make covert attacks against al-Qa'ida **deleted** The JI said that the CIA was reluctant to seek authority to assassinate Bin Ladin and averse to taking advantage of ambiguities in the authorities it did receive that might have allowed it more flexibility. page xxi

Maybe that's what Berger got, discussion of this issue?

medications

A Name-Brand drug is marketed under a specific trade name by a pharmaceutical manufacturer. In most cases, Name-Brand drugs are still under patent protection, meaning the manufacturer is the sole source for the product but in many countries around the world this is not the case and a generic drug alternative is readily available. A generic drug is made with the same active ingredients and in the same dosage form as a brand name drug. The generic drug is therapeutically equivalent to the brand name drug but is sold under its chemical or "generic" name.
