"......destroy the White House"

Athough I PhotoShopped this and it's completely fictional, this is a far more likely scenario then them destroying the White House. The grid coordinates for Mecca are correct and the GBU-43 is the official nomenclature for the MOAB. Fridays are as good a time as any and you have 5 potential TOT's for the target. Uh, Mecca, buh bye. I hope it never comes to this but who knows.

The media really oughta slack up a bit. Going this nuclear on the war, just to get people to give the Dems some slack on their promises might just convince people to hire the adults back. AFter all, this news tends to make one think there really IS a war over there to win. Going to hire a bunch of peaceniks to win it? I'd rather hire the first 600 names in a NASCAR betting pool than the Democratic leadership.

They seem giddy. We should let them indulge themselves.

(And that's a great image, btw)

12,000, maybe, if they count their dead.

12,000 fighters

One of our problems is we don't really have a good intelligence estimate of how many Al Qaeda fighters there really are.

The adminsitration has not even given a good indicator to the American public as to how many of these terrorist there are and how many we've killed.

All we're getting is how many of OUR SOLDIERS have been killed. We don't have any numbers of how many TERRORIST we've destroyed. Hence, the perception from the public that we're not making progress and that we're losing.

I'm not sure why the MSM is making so much more of this propaganda than all the other times some wacky Al-Qaeda wannabe speaks? It can't be because of the elections because it basically vindicates President Bush's position of fighting them there rather than here.

I've tried to explain many times that Mecca is an absolutely absurd target for the USA. When you hear even politicians say it, you are listening to a very ignorant individual.

Saudi Arabia has been an essential US ally for many decades. The takeover of Saudi Arabia is Al Queda's number one goal. Most moslem governments are allied with us or helpful in the war on terror.

There is no reason to even consider attacking the religious center of all moslems, including allies such as Kuwait, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and many many others.

If you want to create a target at least use a site in Iran, which plainly is our enemy and supports terrorism. Syria is a very good place as well.

The MSM, like the democrats and liberals they are, have a totally bizarre view of Iraq and the World. So the impact of these statements on them is 180 degrees from what a sensible person hears.

How can that be? We all know that Al Qaeda is not in Iraq.
