The government ceremony in Mexico went virtually unreported in the U.S. media.

1st Mexican truck rolls across border under cover of darkness

Official: ‘Logistical Trans-Corridor of North America’ open for business

The first Mexican truck authorized by a Bush administration program opening U.S. highways to trucking companies from south of the border crossed into the U.S. this morning at approximately 1:50 a.m. EDT at Laredo, Texas, headed for North Carolina, according to a report from Trucker.com. WND research indicates Transportes Olympic, the Mexican trucking firm sending this morning’s tractor trailer north, was actually selected to be the first across the border nearly six months ago, despite the administration’s “last-minute” announcement of the carrier earlier this week – a revelation that has been described as an example of “stealth.” (more…)

Despite Iraq Reports, Troops’ Future Is Set

by- Suzie-Q @ 5:15 PM MST

WASHINGTON — No matter what Army Gen. David Petraeus tells Congress about the surge in Iraq on Monday, the course for U.S. troops there is already set: Next April, the 30,000 troops who were added this year will begin coming home.

Despite the dueling statistics, the media spin and the maneuvering on Capitol Hill and the campaign trail, no dramatic change in U.S. policy is likely before that, however.

Democrats in Congress who want to force a withdrawal of most combat troops don’t have the votes. To pass a law mandating a withdrawal by a certain date, they’d need more Republican support, and most Republicans reject the idea.

U.S. military officials are assuming that the buildup of 30,000 additional American troops will continue until April, although a senior military official told McClatchy Newspapers that they may redeploy a brigade — some 3,500 troops — probably from the Sunni Muslim province of Anbar, where local Iraqi forces can take over. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly.

By the end of March, however, Pentagon officials said, deployment schedules will force a reduction and the five brigades added for the surge will begin leaving, one month at a time.

Pentagon planners say they can’t maintain the surge beyond that without extending deployments beyond the current 15 months, and the nation’s top military leaders have said they can’t do that with inflicting significant damage on the Army and the Marine Corps.

Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, and Powell have used fear and the promise of security to pave the way for unlawful and unconstitutional policies. To an uncomfortable extent, we have ourselves to blame for allowing fear and panic to cloud our judgement and for supporting the words and actions of unreasonable men in the name of patriotism and self-preservation.

Supressed Document: Hitler: A Psychological Profile. OSS Study

by Allen L Roland

The key to understanding Bush is recognizing his deep fear of failure and humiliation which he constantly felt and supressed as a child ~ and he is still emotionally stuck there today.

The blowing up of frogs, as a child, was a reflection of his deep-seeded anger, which covered his deeper sadness and aloneness, which he externalized on frogs and later human beings ~ He was the killing machine Governor of Texas who put someone to death every seven days and is now responsible for close to a million Iraqi deaths and we are still counting.

Note that Hitler came from a severely emotionally deprived childhood with the same fear of failure and humiliation, which he also supressed ~ taking out his anger on the world in the second World War.

On the Same Subject: Will the Real Osama Stand Up?

Osama looking as fit as ever and ten years younger!

It took a few minutes to sink in – the new tape of Osama Bin Laden that was shown and analyzed on MSNBC’s Keith Oberman show on Friday, September 7, 2007. Perhaps the most striking thing was his black beard. From all accounts, what sets OBL apart from others, even his most devout followers, is his devotion to Islam*. While Islam allows the trimming of the moustache, it calls for fully growing the beard without trimming it. Coloring it, would be out of the question for OBL.

What was said was even more suspicious.

dad2059 says: Hmmm, I wonder if he used “Just For Men Brush-In Color Gel” so he can hit on the local mountain goat herder’s daughter in North Waziristan?

Last night on PBS’ The NewsHour, New York Times columnist David Brooks compared 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden’s latest video message to “lefty blogs,” saying the al Qaeda head is like “one of these childish people posting rants at the bottom of the page.” He then went to describe why he drew such a comparison:

You read this thing, and it’s like he’s been sitting around reading lefty blogs, and he’s one of these childish people posting rants at the bottom the page, you know, Noam Chomsky and all this stuff.

You can’t help read it and not laugh at it, occasionally, because it is just absurd. It’s flying this way, and that way, weird conspiracy theories, and mortgages, global warming. He throws it all in there.

18 US troops killed in Iraq in first week of September

urkunet.info, September 8, 2007

By Noami Spencer

On Thursday, four US Marines were killed in fighting in Iraq’s al-Anbar province. Separately, three soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb in the northern province of Nineveh. The latest casualties bring US military fatalities to 18 in the first week of September, and to at least 3,760 since the 2003 invasion.

Although the military has not released casualty details, the deaths in Nineveh province are a consequence of heightened military activity there. The three soldiers killed Thursday were members of the Army’s Task Force Lightning, a large unit responsible for controlling northern Iraq.

The deaths occurred in an area where Operation Lightening Hammer II, a counterinsurgency operation involving 12,000 US soldiers and 14,000 Iraqi security forces, began September 5. Bloody US military strikes against civilian areas throughout northern Iraq have killed dozens and levelled homes in the past week.
