Oh yeah this is the bit where you bomb Afghanistan back to 'the stone age'. I wish someone would tell America it's already there. All you'll do is shake up the graves and stir up the sand and kill a few thousand civilians which the Taliban themselves have been doing for years.

It is a good day to begin.

October 7 is the anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto (1571), another Islamic defeat.

Yeah obviously the Bush Administration realized that all the pissed off Americans would be watching football. So he planed to bomb them right before the first games.

Go Bears and GO USA

Rumsfeld will brief from the Pentagon this afternoon. Power stations out, "so far so good",per military official. Just the beginning of a LONG stay. Aid will arrive soon to the starving in Afghanistan. "Once softening of targets done, US troops will be on the ground for a long time"
