AN OASIS IN A WORLD OF HACKS, HUSTLERS, AND HIRED SPIN

Great. Petraeus assigns the 'grass-waterer' as is a symbol of progress. Now insurgents and shia radicals will start kidnapping and slaughtering them as a symbolic gesture. Why can't the officials just keep their mouths shut.KPA
Well now we know the new stratagy. Convert Iraq into a number of gettos and use the Isreali's tactics of the west bank. We then control the country and the Iraquis have to bow to our demands in order to move out of their security zones or be supplied with food and water. Instant peace. If they do not do as told they wont get either or only once a week. This will show the world just how strong and determined we are. If a few million with starve or die of thirst, that is then not our fault but the Iraqis.Since we are a christian democracy we cannot be guilty of genocide, or war crimes.Only losers are guilty of that, and we are NEVER losers.
The accompanying story, about Iraqi partisan bands in Diyala (sp?) province, indicates why Petraeus has to latch on to plant-watering as a sign of... something. Turns out the guerrillas in Diyala are pretty sophisticated tacticians, learning more all the time. The Americans helicopter into a village for a sweep, and all they find are women and children. Great reading for any Mekong Delta nostalgists out there....On a marginally related note, I suppose we should be grateful that the WaPo bothered to print these Iraq stories at all, since they're plainly much more interested in milking every triviality imaginable about the Virginia Tech atrocity. That newspaper simply isn't trustworthy any more.....-- sglover
Whiny Pants, you can still pack that washer with ice, slide those bottles in there, and shut the door. Because propane is non-renewable, it is regulated, causing the prices to fluctuate from time to time. But when you like stiffer clothing then you could save on ironing and working with any starch.For those who choose to go with an outdoor clothes dryer you might desire to look into finding an indoor drying rack for drying clothes indoors so whenyou get a stretch of bad weather and you must have some clean clothes you may get it accomplished.
