54. I second that plan.
Iraq took away from operations against our real enemies.

But we had to sit on top that oil. We see the result in $3.00+ gas.

Mission accomplished!

4. stark reminder of how the government manipulates any situation
to suit it's political needs.

How our government uses a tactics of driving fear into the citizens in order to control them.

How our government times the release of such information to work in it's plan most effectively.

Yes, it is a STARK REMINDER of why we, the USA, urgently needs new leadership.

Face it folks, it's DOOMSDAY come back around! Today I'm actually sick, have sore throat, vomiting etc, this is just the cherry on top of a PUKEY day! Wasn't even going to turn on my PC, but after laying in bed and switching channels SAW a snippet on MSNBC and went for the Alka Seltzer again!!

In the immortal words of Nancy Kerrigan... WHY? WHY? WHY?

UNBELIEVABLE, unfortunately they aren't counting of those wacko BELIEVERS one more time!!!

42. At this point in the game, the Cheney Administration will take anything...
it can get -- even a foreign police success to shore up its record-low ratings. But that's politics, what do you expect. Bush is a low-baller so he's probably looking forward to a 45% approval rating at the end of his term -- or at least that's what he's jumping for.

11. Also of note....
I think everyone also needs to be reminded that:

1) Seat belts save lives.
2) You should always wash your hands after coming in contact with someone who has a cold.
3) Never run with scissors.

24. It's a "stark reminder" King George has failed in his war on terror.
If he'd left Iraq alone and concentrated on the individuals who brought down the towers, we might have been in better shape today. Instead, he invades an uninvolved country based on BS and essentially whacks a hornet's nest with a giant bat. We are much less safe today than on 9/11.

Folks, I just can' t belive how these people make this crap up? You think there are terrorists out there making tentative plans on the basis of who wins the Connecticut democratic primary.

And any voter out there that buys that one has to be mentalty hampered that I question whether they're capable of putting their shoes on the correct feet?

Chertoff: Plot 'suggestive' of al-Qaida



http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_terror_plot ;_ylt=As_OkNUoQAMSE7VUf147kGqs0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTA2Z2szazkxBHNlYwN0bQ--

Chertoff: Plot 'suggestive' of al-Qaida

By LARA JAKES JORDAN, Associated Press Writer 6 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - The terror plot disrupted in London is "suggestive of an al-Qaida plot," Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Thursday as the government issued its highest terrorism alert ever for commercial flights from Britain to the United States.


"There is currently no indication of any plotting in the United States," Chertoff said, but the government raised the threat level for all domestic and international flights.

Chertoff said officials cannot assume that the terror operation in Britain had been completely thwarted.

The U.S. government banned all liquids and gels from flights, including toothpaste, makeup, suntan lotion. Baby formula and medicines were exempted.

Chertoff said the alleged plot "was sophisticated, it had a lot of members and it was international in scope." He added, however, that "because the investigation is still underway we cannot yet form a definitive conclusion.".........

30. Stark reminder that it's hard werk being a catastrophic failure
Despite having had almost 6 years, control of all three branches of government and the media, 100s of billions of dollars - or trillions, who's counting, unprecedented secrecy, unconstitutional power, a new department and untold no-bid contracts. Despite invading nations, torturing, spying and destroying every thing that was good about this country, dimson has done nothing to make us safer. Hasn't even secured the ports - something you'd think they would have made a priority if they had actually been concerned about us being attacked.

31. This is a stark reminder that the first anniversary of Katrina approaches.
The coverage is gonna be massive and depressing -- and not good for little Georgie and his men.

So, we need a Terra Alert ... NOW!

But sorry, Georgie ... we won't forget Katrina, no matter how many liquids are taken from us on the plane.

33. Yes, a stark reminder of Willie Stark
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 01:09 PM by Xipe Totec
and "All the King's Men".

As a charismatic governor, rising to the pinnacle of power, he establishes his own political machine and becomes as brutal, fascistic, fearsome, dirty, despotic, dishonest and corrupt as the crooks he's replaced....

Charges of political corruption are threatened against Stark by long-time rival McMurphy, and demands for impeachment are made, but Stark manages to escape the charges through ruthlessness and inhumanity toward his political opponents.

40. I'm convinced this was another "Miami" to shore up crap ratings for Blair
And now look, our favorite chimp is even stealing a foreign police op for his own political gain. How low is this son of a bitch going to go? And what I meant by Miami was -- they get 5 or 6 kids who convert to Islam who say they're going to carry out terrorist attacks and then arrest them and say they've thrawted a major attack when those kids couldn't even blow up a mailbox with a pipe bomb if you gave them the materials. Probably the same deal here. Some stupid Pakistani kids running their mouths and now Blair uses their arrests as evidence of the success of his bumbling administration's "anti-terror" activities.

If only glory wasn't so easily stolen.

I mean, I've come to identify "fascism" as that example set by Mussolini. So how does "Islamic fascism" differ from that? Or does it?

Or is this just another way to demonize the peoples we invade and murder?

51. It is meant as a perjorative of course, but in a way it is appropriate to
those sects of Islam (or any other religion) that prescribes the death penalty for apostasy, blasphemy and similar 'crimes.' This is nothing less than totalitarianism.
