The remaining leaders of the Iraqi insurgency (sic) absolutely must give their best shot in the next 24-48 hours to show that the capture of Saddam does not mean the end of their terror campaign. It needs to be very big though, the strength of the remaining insurgency will be calibrated by the size of the terror act in the next hours and days.

Looks like it detonated in the middle of the street, or maybe thats where it came to rest.

Smells like desparation to me.

Actually, that noise was from Hitlery throwing a lamp at a wall in a fit of rage over the comments from President Bush.

"Large Explosion in Downtown Baghdad"

It's the loud death-wiggle of the Baathist/Jihadist gerbils

If you ever left a message on an answering machine you can do this!
It's really that simple. AND It's a Toll Free Number !

You can leave one or more new messages each day.


Send deployed troops message on SoldiersRadio.com

SoldiersRadio is again this year providing a way to let you tell Service members worldwide that you care and are thinking about them during the Holidays.

You can do an Audio Post Card simply by calling 1-800-330-5090.
Your recorded personalized message will be played back on www.SoldiersRadio.com.

You can record a short message (30 seconds) to friends, family members or just a random message of good will. SoldiersRadio will then take your message and put it on the radio Web cast throughout the Holiday Season. Its very simple to do and works both ways ... from the field or to the Service member.

AnyServiceMember.org is also promoting the call-in holiday service in hopes of reaching a large group of people who would like to send a message to Soldiers serving away from home.

The cut-off date for the call in is tomorrow,
Monday Dec.15.
