    Visiting with U.S. troops in Baghdad on Thursday, failed presidential candidate John Kerry trashed Commander-in-chief George Bush for making "horrendous judgments" and "unbelievable blunders" that have undermined the war effort. In a series of demoralizing comments first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, the defeated Democrat griped, "What is sad about what's happening here now is that so much of it is a process of catching up from the enormous miscalculations and wrong judgments made in the beginning." Kerry said that because of the Bush administration's mistakes, "the job has been made enormously harder." Among the errors cited by the...

    BEIJING (AP) - China has banned a Nike television commercial showing U.S. basketball star LeBron James in a battle with an animated cartoon kung fu master, saying the ad insults Chinese national dignity. The commercial, titled "Chamber of Fear," was broadcast on local Chinese stations and on state television's national sports channel before being pulled last month. It shows James, the Cleveland Cavaliers' reigning NBA rookie of the year, in a video game-style setting defeating the kung fu master, two women in traditional Chinese attire and a pair of dragons, considered a sacred symbol in traditional Chinese culture. The advertisement...

  • There Are Lessons In Unit’s Disobedience (go directly to jail, do not pass go, no 200.00)

    It came as a shock to me when a U.S. truck platoon of the 343rd Quartermaster Company refused orders to hit the road and deliver essential supplies to their comrades. Their reason: the trucks weren’t adequately maintained and the unit didn’t have adequate escort protection for the mission. As the 18-member Army Reserve platoon was placed under arrest for their refusal of a “suicide” mission, the Army rapidly shifted to damage control mode — “It’s an isolated incident . . . we’re investigating . . . the goods have been delivered.” The initial press positions differed. The reports reiterated that...

    Yellow-flag finishes are all but finished in NASCAR. The sanctioning body said Thursday it will go to a green-white-checkered format, hoping all Nextel Cup and Busch series events will end with the cars racing. The new rule will take effect with the races July 24-25 at New Hampshire International Speedway. The truck series already has the rule in place. ``The green-white-checkered format is an attempt to achieve everyone's goals -- a green-flag finish,'' NASCAR president Mike Helton said. ``This change, hopefully, will provide competitive finishes in the relatively rare occasions it is warranted. ``This format has been successful in the...

    Yellowcake: Joe Wilson Skating on Thin Ice By Andrew L. Jaffee, July 14, 2004 Home   Search   Forum   Terms Remember President Bush’s State of the Union Address in 2003? During his speech, Bush spoke of Iraqi attempts to buy uranium oxide -- now infamously known as “yellowcake” -- from Niger. The President’s assertion about a Nigerian uranium connection was attributed to British, not American, intelligence. Now, do you remember Joseph C. Wilson IV, the one-time CIA operative in Niger? He told the Washington Post that President Bush ignored his warning that it was “highly unlikely” that Iraq tried to buy yellowcake from Niger....

    ISTANBUL (AFP) NATO-member Spain on Monday ruled out playing any role in Iraq, just hours after the alliance promised to help train the Iraqi army to calm the violence-wracked country. "The Spanish government does not foreseee any participation in the process under way in Iraq, and in no circumstances any participation on Iraqi territory," Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero told reporters here. He was replying to a question on whether Spain would help train the fledgling Iraqi army. Spain last month completed the withdrawal of its 1,400-strong military contingent in Iraq, fulfilling a pledge by the Socialist prime minister...

    Jade Bear-Dragons Corroborate Yellow Emperor Legend For centuries Huangdi (the Yellow Emperor), legendary ruler and ancestor, lived only in the hearts and minds of the Chinese people and in the words of legends written down in antiquity. But in recent years, intriguing new clues have been emerging from the Neolithic Hongshan Culture. Over 5,000 years ago this was to be found in today's Liaoning Province and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. Hongshan is world-famous for its many jade artifacts. Among these, it is the so-called bear-dragons unearthed in recent years that have provided the first hard archaeological evidence to add credence...

    First French Troops Surrender In Haiti - March 1st 2004 After spending at least five minutes in action in Haiti, it has been reported that the first group of French troops have surrendered, when an elderly local woman approached them in an “almost menacing manner.” It is believed they are currently being held hostage, having to endure stories about how much life was better in the old days, and being force fed home cooked cakes. The French Government has so far been unable to contact the woman holding their troops, but insists it will use only their bravest diplomats to...

    Seems like yellow is everywhere these days. New York fashionistas have dubbed it one of the new colors to watch for, cyclist Lance Armstrong wore the yellow leader's jersey (the maillot jaune) throughout most of the Tour de France this summer and the nation's terror alert level is currently at ... you guessed it, yellow. Oh yeah, and then there's the University of Oregon football team, which has apparently been listening to Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and all the other designers who are predicting a yellow invasion come spring. Not only has the team wheeled out a new "lightning" yellow...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The Texas Democratic senators who fled to New Mexico to block a GOP-pushed redistricting bill said Wednesday their self-imposed exile carries financial and personal costs. Each of the 11 senators is paying for his or her stay in Albuquerque, said Sen. Leticia Van de Putte of San Antonio, chairwoman of the Senate Democratic Caucus. The senators can use their own money or their campaign office holder accounts to pay for the trip. If they use their campaign accounts, their spending will be a matter of public record, Van de Putte said. "I've got three kids in college....
