'Roadmap' Torn Up, Set On Fire

Why am I not surprised?

Palestinians Reject Sharon's Peace 'Test'

GAZA (Reuters) - The Palestinian Authority on Friday rejected Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's new and seemingly softer terms for restarting peace talks, saying he should drop all conditions for dialogue.

Sharon, proposing what he called a test for a new Palestinian leadership, said on Thursday it could show its desire for peace by ending anti-Israeli "incitement" even before the crackdown he has long demanded it launch against militants.

Israeli analysts said Sharon's comments were a departure from his long-standing condition that the Palestinian Authority must dismantle militant groups, as a U.S.-backed peace "road map" demands, before direct talks between the sides can resume.

Gee.....nobody saw this coming.....

From Cox & Forkum:

Just a bit skeptical....

This seems to fit the notion I was shooting for when I posted a portion of Ann Coulter's new column the other day...

F-16s on Station Laying SMACKDOWN!

Found this over at Silent Running via Right Wing News:

Some Marines were pinned down in a building in a Fallujah neighborhood. Terrorists throughout the city heard about it and were rushing to the area to try and take the Marines out. The Marines called in air support and the first responders were Air Force F-16's.

right-click here and 'Save As'

This video shows a group of guerrillas rounding a corner onto the street leading to the Marines. The F-16's altitude appears in the upper right corner. In the lower right corner is the countdown until the bombs impact. The crosshairs in the middle indicate where the pilot is directing the laser spot to guide the bombs. The number just to the right of the crosshairs is the length of one of the arms of the crosshairs on the ground in meters. The bombs are two 500lb laser guided bombs. The total casualty count from this one strike was 48.

It's some wicked video footage......[/evil grin]

You're a Moralistic Moron

Ann Coulter's new column is out. The message?

Using classical Marxist thinking, liberals can't fathom how issues like abortion and gay marriage could trump ordinary people's economic interests -– which liberals axiomatically assume are furthered by the Democrats' offers of government assistance. Democrats are saying to voters: How can you be so stupid to subordinate your own selfish economic interests to "moral values," the betterment of the country and the general welfare of people you don't even know?,
Very true. At least, there are some left-leaning bloggers that I link to that exhibit this peculiar attitude.

Needless to say, it's hard to 'reach out' when people are calling you a moron, a religious-fundamentalist bent on supporting a theologic state, or just plain retarded for excercising my free will to choose whom I'd like leading the nation.

And as always, I'm trying to take the high ground....turn the other cheek.....let them 'out' themselves as a barking moonbat.

Two to the Head in Fallujah

U.S. Investigating Marine Shooting

'Two to the head'BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - The U.S. military said Tuesday it is investigating the videotaped fatal shooting of a wounded man by a U.S. Marine in a mosque in Fallujah. Iraqis condemned the act as "cowardice" and "something forbidden in Islam."

Investigators will determine whether the Marine acted in self-defense against what a spokesman described as an "enemy combatant."

The dramatic footage was taken Saturday by pool correspondent Kevin Sites of NBC television, whose report said the man who was killed didn't appear to be armed or threatening in any way, with no weapons visible in the mosque. The slain man was among a group of men wounded in fighting a day earlier at the mosque and left there. Three others in the group were also shot again Saturday by Marines, Sites said.

I was only partially awake when I saw this on FoxNews this morning.

As with anything heinous as initial reaction(s) are sure to come out, there is probably more to this than is being reported - especially by the imbedded reporter that recorded this.

While there would be little reason to believe that a U.S. Marine would dishonor himself and the Corps by committing such an act, I'll hold judgement until more facts come out.

UPDATE: Charles at Little Green Footballs has the raw video footage of the incident. The photo I used in this post is a still-frame from the video; the Iraqi laying on the ground in it is the one that immediately starts motioning that he's unarmed after the Marine shoots.

UPDATE II: Deuddersun sounds off on this event and from what I know of him, this doesn't surprise me at all. Take a look.

Missed Opportunity in San Diego

I missed some local fun in the sun on Saturday afternoon down in front of the Federal Building.

I guess it was a good thing that I overslept during my nap - these people would be seeking therapy after seeing the likes of Mikey in their faces.

In addition to Da Goddess' account of the action, Smash has a great report on all of it.

Oh well.....maybe next time.
