The good guys now need to turn their attentions to the mosques that are used as weapons depots, staging areas, and command & control centers.

The time for playing patty-cake with the bad guys is over!

Thanks Ragtime Cowgirl.

I am sending links to the source to all the names in my address book.

I think it is a good idea to send info like this to as many folks we know, so they can get more POSITIVE info about the war in Iraq, not just what the MEDIA keeps smearing on TV about the prisoner abise crapola!

thanks for posting - we often forget about those non-destructable rockets laying around all over Iraq (and I say they're non-destructable because, of course, otherwise they would have been declared to the UN and previously destroyed lest we have liberated Iraq for false reasons ROFLMAO)
