Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. - U.S. & World - Roadside Bombs Kill 2 GIs in Iraq

"Roadside bombs killed two American soldiers in northern Baghdad (search) and ignited a train carrying fuel in the south of Iraq's capital, killing two Iraqis and wounding six others, officials said Thursday.

The bombing that killed the two U.S. soldiers came Wednesday during a patrol by soldiers assigned to the Army's Task Force Baghdad , the military said on Thursday. Another U.S. soldier was wounded."

From my information, the third solider in this article is in bad shape and needs everybody's prayers. If you knew the mission these solders were on, this incident would make you sick!

There is something about the US and Texas flag flying over Paris that makes me laugh!

Bad Form!

This story From PA really raises my Blood pressure!

"The family of a Marine who was killed in Iraq is furious with Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll for showing up uninvited at his funeral this week, handing out her business card and then saying "our government" is against the war...."

"In a phone interview, Goodrich said the funeral service was packed with people "who wanted to tell his family how Joe had impacted their lives."

Then, suddenly, "one uninvited guest made an appearance, Catherine Baker Knoll."

She sat down next to a Goodrich family member and, during the distribution of communion, said, "Who are you?" Then she handed the family member one of her business cards, which Goodrich said she still has.

"Knoll felt this was an appropriate time to campaign and impose her will on us," Goodrich said. "I am amazed and disgusted Knoll finds a Marine funeral a prime place to campaign.""

All this is going to do is to strengthen the GOP's resolve to take out the Rendell administration. Does Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll really thing she can beat Lynn Swann'? Now, if Bill Scranton can hold up his end I would be happy! Couple this incident with Rendell's reluctance to extend voting for soldiers abroad , and he may be facing real trouble.

The China Syndrome

Adding to the disscussion in this post at Vodkapundit.
This story a raises some important questions about the intentions of our Chinese friends:

" The Chinese government said it would replace the link between the yuan and the dollar and instead allow the exchange rate to be set by a basket of currencies it has yet to name. The government immediately strengthened the state-set exchange rate of the yuan to 8.11 to the U.S. dollar, up from 8.277."

Hmm, I for one would not want my currency tied to a Nation I was about to engage in outright hostility against (Taiwan and it's US allies) or at least tried to openly hurt by driving up the cost of oil. Maybe some of the boys in DC knew what they are doing when they all but quashed the Unocal deal!

I know this has been the problem with US Chinese trade relations for some time, but I question the timing of the announcement. Couple this with the proclamation that China is prepared to use nuclear weapons against the US and the recent problem our two nations have had such has: Arms Sales to Taiwan and tensions over trade. If i did not know better, I would say that the China was treating the US like a Rival Superpower.

Rampant Speculation!

Does this seem to be just a coincidence?
September 11 2001:

8:45 a.m.: A hijacked passenger jet, American Airlines Flight 11 out of Boston, Massachusetts, crashes into the north tower of the World Trade Center
9:03 a.m.: A second hijacked airliner, United Airlines Flight 175 from Boston, crashes into the south tower of the World Trade Center
9:43 a.m.: American Airlines Flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon
10:10 a.m.: United Airlines Flight 93 crashes in Somerset County, Pennsylvania

July 7 2005:
8:51 a.m. : A bomb explodes near Liverpool underground station
8:56 a.m. : a bomb explodes near Russell square station
9:17 a.m.: a bomb explodes near Edgware Road station
9:47 a.m.: a bomb explodes near the British Medical Association

Is this just a case of coincidence or did the perpetrators of this devious act want to send a message?

My whole problem with this attack is that there has yet to be a confirmed report of a suicide bomber. I am partially wondering if this is not a domestic or international anarchy group who took this opportunity to protest the G-8 while setting up the world community. What effect would it have on the War on Terror (GWT) if the western community condemns these attacks as those of Islamic radicals and then a "local" organization comes forth as the perpetrators? This might be a case of bait and switch!


I took some time off the blog, but now that things have become interesting again, SCOTUS nomination(s) and the like, I will be posting regularly. AND BEWARE I am well rested!
