The Lone And Level Sands Stretch Far Away....

In this recent post, I noted that the U.S. is now in the mosque-building business in Iraq. The mission creep continues. From the AP:
The United States is pouring billions more dollars and fresh platoons of experts into its campaign to "defeat IEDs," the roadside bombs President Bush describes as threat No. 1 to Iraq's future.

The American military even plans to build special, more defensible highways here, in its frustrating standoff with the makeshift munitions "improvised explosive devices" that Iraqi insurgents field by the hundreds to hobble U.S. road movements in the 3-year-old conflict.

Out on those risky roads, and back at the Pentagon, few believe that even the most advanced technology will eliminate the threat.
Does anyone know the Arabic translation for The Big Dig?

Big Dig? I'm from Boston. We don't fear insurgents. The only IEDs that take out our cars are potholes and some can swallow a car whole. We've got a governor who wants so badly to be president one day that he moved here from Utah, got elected, went out and convinced Americans that we were a bad state, and now is wondering why Americans won't elect somebody from our state as President. He makes me laugh everyday and I voted for him. Mitt Romney, if you read this, you fucked up. Your soon to be a king without a castle.

Hey, a toll road! If we can have them here, we can have them there too.

We have toll roads, too but they are disproportional. They are on the side roads but not on the road that got all the work.

We also now have a controversy about adoption.

Apparently the Catholic church thinks they know what's best for kids. I guess if you have your nuns beating them, priests molesting them, and your lawyers telling the courts that the kids and their parents are 'contributory negligent' in the case....you are an authority.

According to a new CNN/Gallop poll, Bush is only 34% away from uniting this countr...in his disapproval.

I guess he was right after all.

Just another indication of how long Defense wants us to be in that country, whether it breaks the army.

Hmmm, let's see: tens of thousands of tons of C4 explosives go missing from an unguarded Iraqi depot within the first months of Operation Iraqi Liberation.

Gee, I wonder where all that plastic explosive material might've got to?

Is this the messy freedom Rumsfeld spoke of?

the most stunning aspect of this is how the administration has so warpped itself into intellectual knots that it now regards IEDs as the problem in the country it claims had WMDs.

IEDs, of course, are a symptom of the problem: the problem is there is no frickin' plan.

Who needs abstinence programs when civil war is your population control.

Do you think that we could get the American military to fix some of the highways here?

C.R., I'm not complaining but two of my comments to this post have disappeared. The first was a crack about Gargano's buddy, Mario Posillico, getting the Iraqi road work.

The second much more valuable post was about how to track down info about the Bechtels via sunbiz.org. Some of your readers might be interested in stuff like that, you know.

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.

Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com
