Communist China Breach American Military Defenses!

by GEF @ 5:22 PM EDT

“The Communist Chinese are poisoning our food, killing our people and pets with bio-toxins, trying to destroy our economy any way they can, learning how to destroy our satellites, and now they are directly attacking our Military Defenses!

How long will our leaders sit idly by while the Chinese figure out how to destroy us ? The Chinese Military are actively engaged in this battle for supremacy and the United States is asleep at the wheel thinking that just because they trade with us that they are our friend. bzzzzzz…Wrong!

The Communist Chinese could kill half their population to reach their goal.

This is not a war game people. China’s end game is to dominate the world and it always was their goal. Presidents Clinton and Bush have sold us down the Chinese river like all Globalist Traitors do to their own people the world over.

I would not be surprised at all if the Chinese are also funding Terrorism and snooping American oceans with their new Chinese submarines.

Are you surprised with these disturbing actions by Communist China ?

I’m not! The Chinese are drilling for oil off the coast of Florida!

The Chinese are getting ready to attack us while the NSA & FBI fiddle with spying on Aunt Betty, who is using the Internet to chat with her boys in Iraq because she wants to send them some of her famous pies.”

Chinese military hacked into Pentagon

By Demetri Sevastopulo in Washington and Richard McGregor in Beijing

The Chinese military hacked into a Pentagon computer network in June in the most successful cyber attack on the US defence department, say American ­officials.

The Pentagon acknowledged shutting down part of a computer system serving the office of Robert Gates, defence secretary, but declined to say who it believed was behind the attack.

Current and former officials have told the Financial Times an internal investigation has revealed that the incursion came from the People’s Liberation Army.

Breaking News: Bush is a Woose!

And if proof were needed…

Bush: I Cry a Lot

Monday Sept 3, 2007

Looking to the day he leaves the White House, President Bush says he’ll concentrate on making speeches and running an institute that promotes democracy around the world. He also admitted that he cries “a lot” on God’s shoulder.

Bush made the revelations to Robert Draper, for his book “Dead Certain,” which will be released on Tuesday.

According to the New York Times, Bush told Draper:

“I’ve got God’s shoulder to cry on, and I cry a lot. I’ll bet I’ve shed more tears than you can count as president” — an implied reference to the casualties of the Iraq war.

Anthony says: Cheer up Dubyah! Think of all that lovely moolah you’ll be raking in on the speech circuit when you finally leave office…

Greer and Maher on Di

anthony @ 18:40 BST

‘Diana was a devious moron’

Germaine Greer launched an astonishing attack on the late Princess of Wales at the Edinburgh International Book Festival yesterday, labelling her a “devious moron”.

“One of the things I have been puzzled by is why her whole life was such a mess. She made a mess of being Princess of Wales, but that is fine because the job is not do-able. It is an insane job and, in history, all but one of the Princesses of Wales have come to a sticky end – stickier than hers.

“I am also interested in why she couldn’t manage life after being HRH. It still puzzles me that she does that no-no thing: she sleeps with married men. If you do that in Hello! magazine, you are beyond contempt. But she does it with Will Carling, we forgive her somehow – even though his marriage is in a very delicate state and it doesn’t seem to have helped at all.

“Then she does it with Oliver Hoare, the antiques dealer, who eventually realises he is in deep shit and goes back to his wife. She makes 300 nuisance calls to his home phone number. And this is the angel that people want to crown.”


The Diana myth

More from Greer:

If Lady Diana Spencer had had a history O-level she might have learnt that marrying a Prince of Wales was a one-way ticket to misery. Indeed it could be argued that for a Princess of Wales she got off lightly. She and her husband had a language in common. She was not kept on short rations or kicked out of the palace, or barred from the court or public life; her children were not taken away from her, and her husband had only one mistress and a discreet one at that.


Bill Maher vs. the Cult of Di

If the muted response from his normally rambunctious audience was any indication, Bill Maher might have crossed a line on Friday, but he deserves praise for confronting a senseless taboo, exploring the death of Princess Di without the usual beatification and self-flagellation:

“I know it’s hard to believe it’s been ten years and who can ever forget where they were when they heard the news about the death of the ex-wife of the possible heir to the figurehead leadership of a second-rate country where she almost never spent time?”

BAGHDAD September 3, 2007, 10:40 a.m. ET · Iraqi soldiers hoisted the nation’s flag over the Basra palace compound Monday after British troops withdrew from their last garrison in the city, leaving the country’s second biggest city largely in the hands in the hands of Iranian-backed Shiite militias.

At al-Asad Air Base west of Baghdad, meanwhile, President Bush made a surprise visit to Iraq, hoping to bolster his case that the buildup of U.S. troops is helping stabilizing the country.

And the U.S. command said a soldier was killed and three others injured when a roadside bomb blew up next to their patrol on Sunday outside of Baghdad. No further details were released.

British vehicles rumbled out of the gates of the sprawling Basra Palace compound after dark Sunday and headed for the Basra’s international airport, about 12 miles away, where the last of Britain’s 5,500 soldiers are based.

Congress Back From Vacation, Will Renew Debate On Iraq

by- Suzie-Q @ 9:06 AM MST

A volunteer with Veterans for Peace puts up crosses in Santa Monica, Calif., representing U.S. soldiers killed in the Iraq war.

WASHINGTON — Congress returns from its summer recess this week still split along partisan lines about whether there’s progress in Iraq and what policy on Iraq would best protect U.S. security interests.

Democrats and Republicans don’t intend to renew their formal debate about what to do next in Iraq until after Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. military commander in Iraq, and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker report next Monday, but it’s clear where both sides will line up.

Republicans, led by President Bush, say there have been military gains, citing as evidence such things as numbers of enemy forces killed and captured and more tips from Iraqis. They say this shows that Bush’s troop “surge” is working and deserves support.

Most Democrats want to withdraw U.S. combat troops. Some of them acknowledge some military gains, but note that violence remains high. They stress that American intelligence experts say the prospects for Iraqi politicians finding a political solution to the violence are dim. That assessment was seconded by a Government Accountability Office draft report leaked Thursday that found that Iraq’s leaders have failed to meet 15 of their own 18 benchmarks for progress toward peace and stability. The report also says that questions remain about whether sectarian violence has been reduced.

Statistics that McClatchy Newspapers collected in Baghdad don’t show any drop in violence. Civilian deaths in the capital were about the same in July as in December, before the American troop increase began. U.S. officials in Baghdad declined to provide data to back up their claims of lower violence.

What Have We Done?

by- Suzie-Q @ 8:24 AM MST

This video is a look at the war in Iraq… a war that never should have happened. These images alone serve as a reminder to us all that war is not something for us to be proud of. It is something that should be avoided at all costs… unless it is for the right reasons.

We’re out by Feb. ’09: MacKay

punditman says @ 9:20 EDT: Looks like the Canadian government sees the writing on the wall with respect to the Afghan combat mission.

From Monday’s Globe and Mail

September 3, 2007 at 2:00 AM EDT

OTTAWA — Canada has made it clear to its NATO allies that they cannot count on our troops to fight on the deadly battlefields of southern Afghanistan after February of 2009, Defence Minister Peter MacKay said Sunday.

“The signal that has been sent already is that our current configuration will end in February, 2009,” Mr. MacKay said in an interview on the CTV television program Question Period.

“Obviously the aid work and the diplomatic effort and presence will extend well beyond that. The Afghan compact itself goes until 2011,” he said. “But the way the mission is currently configured, with respect to our presence in Kandahar, there is an expiration date that has been set.”

Mr. MacKay added that the government has committed to a vote in the Commons on Canada’s future in Afghanistan. He also said he and Prime Minister Stephen Harper are in regular contact with North Atlantic Treaty Organization officials and their counterparts among NATO countries.

Opposition parties have been pounding away at the government to notify NATO and Afghan allies that the mission will not be extended past February of 2009.
