Sadr loyalty grows, as Sistani returns
News from “liberated” Afghanistan: Corruption gives impunity to Afghanistan’s drug lords. (I strongly recommend the formation of a new group: Heroin Addicts for Bush. They have Bush to thank for the influx of heroin to US from Afghanistan.
I am not making this up: Israel to deport UK journalist for being “naive.”
American “liberation” of Iraq continues: “Iraqi puppet police last night abducted around 60 journalists in the city of Najaf, after bursting into the hotel where they have been covering the battle in the city for the Imam Ali shrine, and dragging them off at gunpoint.”
Some clown has invaded and sabotaged the comments’ section. Neal is suggesting that we shift to another system for comments. I do not know. I just do not understand: by sabotaging the section, the culprit prevented people of DIFFERENT viewpoints from expressing themselves.

He told LBC-TV: “We love democracy.” I thought that I would tell you that, in case you wanted to know. In related news: “Iraq Witnesses and Iraqi hospital officials say two people are [...]
If you want a definition of a kangaroo court, this is: A U.S. Defendant Scolds Afghan Judge on Law.
How can I ever, EVER, be critical of US wars. This is mercy that I have not seen in my life. US wars and occupation are now kind and polite: “U.S. military apologizes for deaths of three unarmed Afghans at road checkpoint.”
Bush administration’s misuse of science in environmental policymaking. (thanks R.A.)
Al-Quds Al-`Arabi (which manages to combine admiration for Saddam and Bin Laden) published an interview with a “member of the command of the “Iraqi Resistance.” The leader said that the “resistance” is now organized and united, and is responsible for 70% of “attacks.” He also said that the movement does not agree with Abu Mus`ab [...]
