Notice that bloggers, and hackers, seem to be members of the Vast Right Wing? At least that is what the hit counters tell.

America meets the ghost of the Tet offensive
Bull. Saddam is going down, and there is nothing--NOTHING--the UN or a bunch of pampered college kids and pony-tailed greybeards mucking up traffic can do about it.
When Saddam's severed head is displayed, you just watch what the Shi'ites do to those fedayeen asshats.

The New Republic Online: Know Contest
A good analysis of why the Iraqi regime continues to blather to the international press (who suck it up) about how they are resisting the "infidels."
A Role for the U.N. in Iraq's Future
Yeah, let them bury the Republican Guard.
And Now, the Good News
I can agree with most of this, except the part about "preparing" the country for casualties.
Contrary to the media's opinion, I believe most Americans understand that people--on both sides--get dead in war. That's why they don't call it "peace." Anyone who thought it would be bloodless has probably spent far too much time in behind their Nintendo controller.

i worked at the Village Voice as a MacWeenie for a bit of time, but ended up quitting because I just couldn't keep a straight (pun WAY intended) face dealing with the strident shitheads on one side, and the Microserfs running the IT department on the other.

But Musto is the second greatest queen I've ever seen. I agree with about twenty percent of his shit, but he always makes me laugh like hell.

Oh shit...bush at an some base just came on the boob.... Have to go wash my hands for this post.

Maureen Dowd: War Analyst
This column is ridiculous on all sorts of levels. First she tells us that Donald "the war czar" Rumsfield has suddenly found out that his plan was bogus; that he should have listened to his generals instead of "cocky theorists" and their "neo-con gurus."

As if she was privy to the planning stage of this war.

Next, she wheels out Vietnam, the Iranian revolution and the fall of the Soviets as examples of how American intelligence services are perennial dolts.

She goes on to say the administration was caught by surprise at the subterfuge the overmatched Iraqis have employed to make some unfortunate, but piddling, nicks on the American armed forces. She tosses in a Sun Tzu quote to enforce the the stupidity angle a second time, and keeps beating that dog by saying the American war planners were experiencing their own shock and awe because Iraqi citizens were realizing they weren't the target of the bombings.

Finally, she blathers that the planners miscalculated by leaving Iraqi TV on the air, allowing Saddam to use it for propaganda.

Yo, Mo. Nobody was surprised that the Iraqi citizenry could figure out that the bombs were not coming down on their heads. At least, no one who believes the average Iraqi is a lot like the average Anybody with a Working Brain. As far as leaving the TV station running, Saddam's blustering might have played out in the sticks, but the cityfolk only had to look out their windows to know he was full of shit.

I'l wager Dowdy Girl has her radio tuned to NPR, and her television locked down on the BBC.

Which, in New York City, are currently speaking with the same left wing, anti-American, British voice.

Instead of looking back and playing armchair general, her colleague Thomas Friedman offers a good piece,Scorecard for the War, outlining how we can tell if this war has achieved its goal (although his slap at Israel in #3 seems little more than a backhand slap).

Something Suspicious Is in the Air
A WaPo columnist decides to play smartass with some National Park police.

Too bad he didn't get his ass maced. With everything going on, he decides to bust balls, knowing he is dealing with guys who are probably Orange Alert nervous and not in the mood.

The minute they ask their question, he whips out his press pass and BINGO, the situation is over. But no, he decides he is representing. After all, these cops might be racist bastards!

Hey, asshole! "..an African American" wasn't pestering other people and jotting things down in a notebook while inspecting some sort of utility device.

Just a schmuck from the Washington Post.

Guardian Unlimited | 'Chirac has the moral high ground'
Read paragraph 5. It translates to "They might fark us next." Or, it begs the question, "Just 'cause they live inside your borders, that makes them French?"

He further goes on to claim Tony Blair is claiming a "payback" because Chirac caught an earlier flight to the US following 9-11.

lgf: Peace Creeps Attack 9/11 Memorial
THIS is why God invented guns.
EU experts believe Microsoft in violation -sources
I am a hard core Mac Addict. The only Redmond-reared software installed on my Macs are Office (for Wintel conversion purposes), and Explorer, for web browsing. I use Appleworks and Mariner applications for basic productivity, Macromedia for web development, and Adobe for everything else.

Asking Microsoft to bust open more of their proprietary code makes some sense, in that it allows third party developers a better chance to compete. Uncoupling Media Player from the Windows operating system is too dumb by twelve to be taken seriously. It's like asking Apple to treat Quicktime like a red-headed stepchild. in my office I have machines running various flavors of both Microsoft and Apple operating systems. The one thing every machine here has in common is that they are all equipped with Quicktime, Media Player, and RealPlayer. Certain websites stream their media under one specific format. While Quicktime and Media Player can be designated as the primary media tool, it's just easier to use the native app.

"Under God?"
If we were not in a war with folks who believe they were operating under orders from Allah, I would applaud the 9th Cicuit ruling. The phrase in question was entered into the mix in response to "godless communism" back oin 1954. It was a crass political move then, as is the drive to strip it out is now.

However, when the bastards who blew away all those people back on 9-11-01 claim their actions are taken in the name of their God, as are the actions of homiced bombers in Israel, it seems to me that, whether anyone likes it or not, our opponents are laying down a gauntlet: "Accept our God or die." Since that is their rule of engagement, then why bother declaimng the US believes in no God? We're just as much an infidel nation either way.
