We didn't go to war with Iraq for those children then, and we aren't doing it now either.

"We didn't go to war with Iraq for those children then, and we aren't doing it now either."

True. We should have, rather, the world should have. In any event, those will be our children if we do nothing now....

Dio- Wow. Again you amaze. From the boarding of the NK ship to the Indian marines to the reminders of Israel's often lonesome war. I simply can't thank you enough...

No, we're going to do it now for our children, as well as the rest of us. If we keep more Kurd kids from being gassed, so much the better.

Al Qaeda says it supports Iraq. Iraq says it supports Al Qaeda. That's enough for me. The fact that Saddam is a long time mass murderer is just another bit of evidence he needs to go.

I think they won't care if they get nuked. You see, in high school they are taught there are too many people in the world. When the chinese threatened to nuke LA in 1996 a little high school girl I knew shrugged and said it would help to get rid of some of the excess population. Aghast I asked what if your family lived there? She did not change her response.

Oh, they are so clever.

Wed Dec 11,12:37 PM ET Casing is seen under sacks of cement inside the unflagged ship Sosan, 600 miles off the Horn of Africa, Monday, Dec. 9. 2002. Spanish soldiers boarded the Sosan after the crew refused to identify themselves. The North Korean captain of the Sosan initially told Spanish officials the ship was carrying cement, but a subsequent search revealed 15 missiles and other sophisticated weaponry according to Spanish Defense Minister Federico Trillo who briefed the media in Madrid, Spain Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2003.

A note on what we're looking at here.

The "hole" is the rocket nozzle. Those things sticking into it are steering vanes -- by twisting them in the rocket exhaust, you can alter the thrust direction and control the rocket. This is straight out of von Braun's V-2 design.

It works, but it's pretty primative, and compromises performance. These days, it's usually done by gimballing the engine itself. (Think of the video you've seen showing how the Shuttle main engines move at startup....)

I wonder if the Spanish still have some fight left in them for Western [Christian] values. France already proved it doesn't in WWII.

Time was, when Spain and Portugal were the terror of the seas.

The Spanish don't whine, they don't criticize, and they don't offer unsolicited moral instruction. They're consistently helpful diplomatically and militarily. That's why we don't hear much from them or about them.

One could build the best possible defenses against intercontinental ballistic missiles and miss that possibility. I think as long as there are countries out there -- and there are -- who are as clearly determined as they are and they evidence it among other things, I mentioned the amount of resources they devote to being able to attack us. We need to be thinking ahead of them. We need to be thinking out of the box. We need to remember that there was a time when we said, I believe it was March of 1962, that it was inconceivable the Soviet Union would put missiles in Cuba.

Bump for your pics and your comments.

I am going to rant a bit now. The pictures of the anti-Americans in Boston really tick me off. We have a God given right to defend the helpless. We have an obligation as the only world super power to rid the world of the terror and torture brought to us by Iraq, Al Qaeda, and their blood thirsty leaders.

Thanks for the ping Dio - this pretty well sums up my thoughts on all of Islam.

Scud nozzle featured in 2 is Anus of Evil.

It is not too great a leap to connect the dots thusly:

Xiong Guangkai threatens to incinerate L.A., says China and North Korea are as lips and teeth.

China has assisted North Korea in development of missiles and nuclear weapons.

North Korea ships missiles to Yemen (obviously for anti-U.S./anti-Israel terrorists)--why not nuclear weapons?

Condoleezza Rice made it clear to Xiong Guangkai we will not accept his threats.

Let any use of such weapons against us result in the incineration of Beijing, Mecca, Medina, Pyongyang.

As for the anacephalics in Boston, drop them on Baghdad, each ducttaped to a barrel of crude.

No brains, no spine, no conscience, no soul--their use is limited to aiding the enemy, so let them deliver supplies.

Bless the finest fighting force on earth with success in the current mission.

A couple observations regarding those terrific pics of our heroes in uniform:

1.Our armed forces are the best equipped fighting men and women in the world.

2.Good to see the Ma Deuce (M2 .50 cal Browning machinegun) is still going strong after all these decades. John Moses Browning was a genius.

Good point,...and once again, why didn't we seize the devices? IMHO, we're far too liberal in staffing the military with women, socialists, and atheists, but micromanage the officers from displaying wherewithal on the scene to defend American interests. US military today fails to defend the Constitution, but instead defends a NWO heirarchy and is allowing itself to become emasculated from future Constitutional control of their responsible leadership.
