The Amir (ruler) of Qatar funds al jazeera. Our CENTCOM HQ's is in Qatar. What an irony. It's possible the Amir pulled the reporters out, or al jazeera ordered their people home, if it looked like the reporting wasn't going to play well down on the farm. I have to admit, this scenario is quite a stretch.

Who tinkled in your cheerios? You came in and started hurling insults to others like you are some General in Iraq.

If someone wants to speculate and ask questions are make an observation, you can dispute or suggest another one without resorting to name calling as you did.

That's the first sign of depleted grey matter sir.

Great lexicon- like the 'Clymer' moment. ABC radio news reporting: downed F18 Super Hornet from the USS Kittyhawk. US not releasing any further details about the downed Blackhawk due to operational security (possible ongoing rescue operations ?)

I have enjoyed Greg Palkot's reports. Just listening to his voice, he sort of sounds like John Wayne.

Lawrence Eagleburger just told Hannity and Colmes that he was called last week to write an op-ed for the New York Times. They didn't care about the subject, just that he would write something critical of the administration!

He refused.

All pretense is gone, isn't it.

That is a good thing, as appalling as the spectacle before us is.

Here's a link to Sabertooths latest weather and wind maps.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/883003/posts

Looks as if the wind, which has mostly been north to south the last several days, might be changing to a more south to north direction with an incoming weather front.

David Bloom: JUST IN: Reports from the front say that the air attack on the RG have been so devistating to them that the 3ID no longer has it's primary mission.......

It was supposed to attack and kill the RG, and it's been done already by air....

Sorry to chime in on the chat, but I must state for the record:

I like Carmen!

I loved "Turn the Beat Around" and my favorite so far was her rendition of "You Can't Hurry Love".

Back to the war (just catching up and seeing Carmen dissed and had to say something!).

Total waste of an hour. Since they got rid of the sister beater, they dragged out the show to only kick no one off.

They are going to take Tuesday's votes and add them to next week.

Sorry. I'm guilty for dissing her. Shouldn't have done that. She is very pretty. I will say that. I don't like Kimberly Caldwell because her voice bothers me, although she is very photogenic. But Josh is my favorite. Then, Clay. Then, Ricky. Then, Reuben. Guess I like male singers better. I think Kimberly Locke has the most interesting female voice.

Question to Rick: How does 9-11 compare to what you're doing now?

Rick: You can't compare. That was the worst day of my live. That day gave me a lot of motivation to go to Afghanistan and follow our troops in the war on terror. I have had similar days of fear here, but it's a different fear. In NY, it was like the whole world was falling on top of us.

I missed Idol,,did anything happen?

Last night they announced Corey was removed for his pending charges of assault on his sister and four police officers. Seems he forgot to mention this to producers. They did not replace him so instead of nine singers last night, we had eight.

Tonight when they normally would have announced who was voted off, they said they were not removing a contestant tonight, leaving the contestant total at eight, as it would have been scheduled to be. However, the vote tally from this week WILL be added to the votes next week. Bottom two this week were Trenyce and Carmen (Kimberly Locke rounded out the bottom three).

I cannot imagine how that felt,,it is beyond me. Once at a fireworks disiplay something went wrong and the fireworks were aimed at me and three kids. There was ash and fire and stuff falliing all over us, the kids were screaming, I felt like hell was falling on me and was totally undone. You must have felt that a million times over. I cannot imagine it.

Question to Rick: What do the soldiers need if they are getting mail?

Rick: They have not gotten mail since Kuwait. These guys have been waiting. They like chew, smokes, and those who have them are selling them for up to $20 a pack. When they can't smoke, they chew.

(Asking a soldier what he wants) He says babywipes and for homeade fudge (Shep says Skinner will be on that.)

Another soldier says that he would like a shower. heh heh
