Oh those silly, silly, talibans; the Baghdad chapter is acting out because the Afgan chapter is getting more of the kenyan's attention.

Send them some more colored beads and trinkets.

Is this a dry run of things going to happen here at home? Those cute muzzies with their quaint religion of love and tolerance.

This is so sad...

“Rules of engagement” are getting women and children killed...

These murderers could have been taken out long ago when they were shooting our troops from the protection of the mosques...

The militants are just reacting to the anger remaining from the Bush actions.

He will use this attack and claim it was done to dissuade him from signing the global warming treaty, and bravely sign it anyway saying we don’t negotiate with climate change deniers or their heavy-handed tactics. They just need to get out of the way, it’s bene decided, and no amount of car bombs going off in Iraq by the climate change deniers will stop him from doing the right thing.

“Hoax and Change” — Nice.
and I could combine it with the other one floating around out there (“Hope and Chains”) to get:

“Hoax and Chains” <- the best descriptor of global-warming/climate-change/cap-and-trade I have yet to see.

If they kill enough of each other the whole loonie project of building a mohamedan “nation” may have been worth it after all.

The “religion of peace” adherents once again prove that that really is the “religion of pieces”. Hey, didn’t you know it isn’t cool to blow each up?????

Our terrorist enemies are greatly emboldened by Obama incredible weakness, cowardice, defeatism, and absolute lack of decisiveness and leadership. Because of this they are going to do us and the rest of the world a lot of harm.

They are greatly emboldened because they do not have President Bush to kick their terrorist asses anymore.

A-OK and stateside until late next month.

Looks like Syria and/or Iran have some 'splainin' to do.

Thanks for your concern - I really do appreciate it.

That’s a relief. Are you sure you have to go back? Why don’t you just stay at home now? We need you here.

I *cough!* may be going to Afghanistan.

I just saw the Twin Towers site again yesterday (I've been gallivanting around NYC on part of my vacation) and it reaffirmed my commitment to help out in this war against these scumbags.

Yea it must be the Christians there....oh sorry, they are too busy fighting off persecution. But that does not matter, as long as the Muslims are happy that is all that matters.

If you consider creating an Islamic country that persecutes Christians, I guess so. But Bush didn’t give a damn about his fellow Christians.

Things will only get worse when the troops leave.

Hi JV...

I agree with you 100% my friend! hussein is the worst POS, coward, gaylord, communist, marxist enemy within that has ever stolen the office of President. I could say more but I am running late getting ready to go to work... while I still have a business to go to... hussein is killing the economy and after 36 years in business, the marxist may cause me to close it to stop the bleeding of my life savings. I despise the kenyan and his family and every single traitor that works for him... and the evilcrat satan party to boot!

Best to you and your family my true friend... and GOD bless!

Hello FRiend

I am praying hard that you will keep your business despite this President continous attempt to destroy many people businesses through his evil socialism. This storm shall pass. Please keep the faith.

I agree JV. If I close, it will only be until that usurper and enemy of Liberty is voted out of office. The only reason that I would close is if I continue to have to put money into it just so I can remain open. Right now, it is costing me a fortune to keep everyone working and all the bills paid. I promise that my faith remains strong and any closure would be temporary. Make no mistake though... those of us in business know that we are in a depression and that any talk of recovery is no more than political propaganda lies.

Best to you my FRiend... as always,

LLS
