Tell Me I am Dreaming This (a Nightmare but of course)

Good Grief look at this!
Spanish Judge Issues Warrants for Three U.S. Soldiers
MADRID, Spain — A judge has issued an international arrest warrant for three U.S. soldiers whose tank fired on a Baghdad hotel during the Iraq war, killing a Spanish journalist and a Ukrainian cameraman, a court official said Wednesday.
Judge Santiago Pedraz (search) issued the warrant for Sgt. Shawn Gibson, Capt. Philip Wolford and Lt. Col. Philip de Camp, all from the U.S. 3rd Infantry, which is based in Fort Stewart, Ga.
Jose Couso, who worked for the Spanish television network Telecinco, died April 8, 2003, after a U.S. army tank crew fired a shell on Hotel Palestine (search) in Baghdad where many journalists were staying to cover the war.
Reuters cameraman Taras Protsyuk, a Ukrainian, also was killed.
Pedraz had sent two requests to the United States — in April 2004 and June 2005 — to have statements taken from the suspects or to obtain permission for a Spanish delegation to quiz them. Both went unanswered.
He said he issued the arrest order because of a lack of judicial cooperation from the United States regarding the case.
The warrant “is the only effective measure to ensure the presence of the suspects in the case being handled by Spanish justice, given the lack of judicial cooperation by U.S. authorities,” the judge said in the warrant. Continue reading….

Now wait just a War Time minute! Look we are at War this is not a tea party. Places get bombed and anyone that goes there to do stories, photo journalists etc. they know the risk and if they don’t they better learn fast.

U.S. Wants Abbas to Urge Non-Violence

WASHINGTON – The Bush administration is asking Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to require candidates in next January’s election to renounce violence as a means of easing tensions with Israel, a senior U.S. official said Wednesday.
and this…..
The Bush administration has urged Abbas to dismantle Hamas and other groups considered to be terrorist organizations. While the Palestinian leader has denounced violence, he has not tried to keep the groups from fielding candidates for the legislature.

Well my cyber friends let us not forget what ole terrorist Abbas said………
” The little Jihad has ended
and now the big Jihad is beginning.”
– quote from Terrorist / Prime Minister Mohammad Abbas
OH and let’s not forget this one either……………
In a recent July 8th broadcast, Abbas-controlled PA TV calls to “annihilate the infidels [common reference to US and Western countries]… God, count them and kill them to the last one, and don’t leave even one.”

Wild Thing’s Comment….
Israel’s longtime enemy, and its enemy today, is of the very same terror that was launched on us on Sept.11,2001…. but, if less confounding, more routine and more tolerated. It is the world’s acceptance of the routineization of this killing of Jews that has so
affronted Israel, its allies, and others like myself . Abbas will never keep his word, he is incapable of doing so. He is after all one of them, one of the terrorists! It is time to show that Jewish blood is NOT cheap and those who shed it will pay a tremendous price !
President Bush can ask Abbas to do many things, but will Abbas do as asked? Or will there be more demands on Israel? I pray we stand along side Israel always and let Abbas know very clearly where we stand.

NYT Wants Touchie Feelie Trial for Saddam

Saddam was a brutal dictator, a head-of-state who waged war on his neighbors and his own people. He ruled over his people with an iron fist, using torture and murder. From 1979 until 2003, Saddam Hussein ruled Iraq. Saddam supported terrorism in Israel, paying the families of Palestinian suicide bombers. He provided safe haven for Abu Abbas and other international terrorists.
And now he is finally going to be on trial for his many crimes!
But wait…….something is wrong with this picture! But of course it is the lefties, one that I will mention now is the New York Times! They are concerned, wringing their hands at the water fountain, having sleepless nights, moaning and groaning in the hallways and why?….They are concencerned that Saddam will not get a fair trial.

On Wednesday, 22 months after he was dragged from his hiding place in an underground bunker, Saddam Hussein will appear in an Iraqi court to answer for the brutalities he inflicted on his fellow Iraqis. But what should be a moment of triumph for his victims is instead stirring concern about the fairness and competence of the court itself.

Read on my friends of truth and those like me that are fed up with PC!

…Western human rights groups and legal experts have warned that the former dictator is unlikely to get a fair trial, and that the probable outcome, a death sentence, will be what the tribunal’s harshest critics have described as “victor’s justice.”


Hello-o-o-o-ooooo! He has had enough justice just being able to be alive as long as he has in his jail cell. Give me a break! True Justice for Saddam will be to put an end to his life!

Baseball and Football Tonight

Three cheers for my Denver Brocnos! They won Denver 28 to N.E. 20. So I am a happy camper!
I am a Cubs fan so I don’t have anyone I am cheering for in particular for the World Series………….BUT………. tonight
La Rossa was thrown out of the game and also Jim Edmonds. Now here is the thing OK??!! These games are very important, they determine who goes to the World Series. Sooooooo shouldn’t the umpires be a little more patient with the players and managers in this kind of situation? The homeplate umpire is a jerk! He had no patience at all and boom! wack! LaRossa was thrown out first.
I know the rules, honest, but tempers are hotter in these playoffs, the games mean more then ever and, well…these are just my thoughts on what happened tonight.
Anyway, St.Louis lost and IMO all that throwing people out does is effect the mindset of the team.
So the best thing for sports today was Bronco’s WON tonight!

God Bless America Signs Offend The Ever So Sensitive Atheists
An atheist group is complaining about two signs posted outside a city hall in New York state that declare “God Bless America.”
But the signs hung by a Long Island official outside the town hall of Babylon, N.Y., are perfectly legal, according to a group specializing in constitutional law that has volunteered to defend them.
“The phrase ‘God bless America’ does not violate the Constitution,” said Gary McCaleb, senior counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund.

From Russia With Love to Iran- Is That A Missile In Their Pocket?

Russia NOT making the world a safer place from Terrorists!
Russians help Iran with missile threat to Europe
By Con Coughlin
(Filed: 16/10/2005)
Former members of the Russian military have been secretly helping Iran to acquire technology needed to produce missiles capable of striking European capitals.
The Russians are acting as go-betweens with North Korea as part of a multi-million pound deal they negotiated between Teheran and Pyongyang in 2003. It has enabled Teheran to receive regular clandestine shipments of top secret missile technology, believed to be channelled through Russia.
Western intelligence officials believe that the technology will enable Iran to complete development of a missile with a range of 2,200 miles, capable of hitting much of Europe. It is designed to carry a 1.2-ton payload, sufficient for a basic nuclear device.

The revelation raises the stakes in the confrontation between Iran’s Islamic regime and the West – led by the United States and European countries including Britain.
Condoleezza Rice, the US secretary of state, clashed with Russian officials over Iran’s Nuclear Programmeduring a visit to Moscow yesterday, saying that Teheran must fulfil its obligations under the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty.
She was later expected to urge President Vladimir Putin to back a referral of Iran to the United Nations Security Council.
A senior American official said Iran’s programme was “sophisticated and getting larger and more accurate. They have had very much in mind the payload needed to carry a nuclear weapon.
“I think Putin knows what the Iranians are doing.”
Iran is believed to be hiding its weapons development behind its nuclear power programme, for which it receives Russian support, and has refused to suspend uranium enrichment or to allow full UN inspections.
John Bolton, the US ambassador to the UN, told BBC2’s Newsnight that Iran was “determined to get nuclear weapons deliverable on ballistic missiles it can then use to intimidate not only its own region but possibly to supply to terrorists”.
Iran’s longest-range missile is the Shahab 3, which, with an 800-mile range, could hit Israel. The North Korean deal will allow the Iranian missile to reach targets far into Europe – including Rome, Berlin, and much of France.
North Korea has developed a missile, the Taepo Dong 2, that could reach America’s west coast, based on the submarine-launched Soviet SSN6. Modifications allow it to be fired from a land-based transporter and this technology is being smuggled to Teheran with Russian help.
Russians have provided production facilities, diagrams and operating instruction so the missile can be built in Iran. Liquid propellant has been shipped to Iran. Russian specialists have also been sent to Iran to help development of its Shahab 5 missile project, which the Iranians hope to have operational by the end of the decade.
