    Al-Qaida plants flag, burns bodies in Iraq attack

    These people are fucked once we leave... seriously...

    BAGHDAD Militants flew an al-Qaida flag over a Baghdad neighborhood Thursday after killing 16 security officials and burning some of their bodies in a brazen afternoon attack that served as a grim reminder of continued insurgent strength in Iraq's capital.

    It was the bloodiest attack in a day that included the deaths of 23 Iraqi soldiers, policemen and other security forces across the country who were targeted by shootings and roadside bombs.

    The mayhem serves as a stark warning that insurgents are trying to make a comeback three months after their two top leaders were killed in an airstrike on their safehouse, and as the U.S. military presence decreases day by day.

    Did anyone really believe that it would be otherwise? We accomplished what we needed to, called Saddam's bluff and know for sure there are no WMD's and we ridded ourselves of the threat of him getting them in the future. These people have lived this way for as long as anyone can remember. We need to get the heck out of there and quite spending the money. Let them have their country back and get our military men and women home.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Same thing goes for Afghanistan I'm afraid. I mean, if the Russians couldn't break the spirit of the Mujahideen back in the 80's how the hell did we think we could? You can't win against an enemy who has nothing to live for and does not fear death.

    The key to ridding the world from Al-Qaida is:

    2. Blue Cheese Dressing

    LOL weapons of mass destruction. I thought that myth went out years ago.

    This is about money and ENERGY.

    This should provide some clues as to why we've invaded the Middle East, and where this is leading next (Iran).


    November of 2000...

    Saddam Turns His Back on Greenbacks
    Iraq says that from now on, it wants payments for its oil in euros

    Monday, Nov. 13, 2000


    Europe's dream of promoting the euro as a competitor to the U.S. dollar may get a boost from SADDAM HUSSEIN. Iraq says that from now on, it wants payments for its oil in euros, despite the fact that the battered European currency unit, which used to be worth quite a bit more than $1, has dropped to about 82[cents]. Iraq says it will no longer accept dollars for oil because it does not want to deal "in the currency of the enemy."

    Iran up to much of the same for a while now...


    2009

    Tehran dumps dollar for euro
    21 September 2009

    Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has ordered the replacement of the US dollar by the euro in calculating the value of the country's Oil Stabilisation Fund (OSF)
    .

    2006

    Dollar dropped in Iran asset move
    December 2006


    Iran is to shift its foreign currency reserves from dollar to euro and use the euro for oil deals in response to US-led pressure on its economy.

    In a widely expected move, Tehran said it would use the euro for all future commercial transactions overseas.

    An Iranian spokesman said all its foreign exchange transactions would be conducted in euros and its national budget would also be calculated in euros as well as its own currency.

    "There will be no reliance on dollars," said Gholam-Hussein Elham.

    My friend's son just returned from a 6 month deployment in Iraq. He never fired his weapon in anger one time while he was there.

    ...however...

    As we pull withdraw from our various positions the local militants or AQ quickly move into our old FOBs. What has been happening is that we watch from the UAVs from the sky, and then once they are all set up and comfy we blow the site to kingdom come.

    The best part about us leaving is that Iraqi forces won't be constrained by our rules of engagement, and foriegn fighters are going to be hunted down and killed in very slow & painful ways.

    I have a friend in the CIA who last week gave me a little non top secret opinion. This is just his personal opinion, not official policy or anything.


    If GW was still President we would have already invaded Iran.

    Obama is waiting for Israel to do it.


    I personally don't like either option.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
