Wolfowitz, an architect of the U.S. war on terror and an intellectual force behind the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, was led away by security forces. He appeared composed after descending a stairwell past thickening smoke and blood stains with a fire alarm blaring, witnesses said. But he looked shaken when he addressed reporters a few hours later.

Guerrillas fired 20 rockets from a home-made launcher disguised as a power generator, U.S. defense officials said. Some of the rockets did not explode and another 11 rockets failed to launch from their canisters, they added.
Things are getting incredibly dangerous and unstable for our military men and women. Why are we there? What have we accomplished?? Anyone know? Tell me if you do......


oh, and there is this......

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Suicide bombers struck the Red Cross headquarters and three police stations across Baghdad on Monday, killing about 40 people and injuring more than 200 in a coordinated terror spree that stunned the Iraqi capital on the first day of the Islamic holy month of fasting, Ramadan.

Wolfowitz? The sack? I can't imagine so. Are you thinking of John Poindexter, after the snafus at DARPA?

Wow. Bush has his eyes closed, his hands over his ears, and is saying "LA LA LA LA LA!!":

http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/inte...-Military.html

Quote:
President Bush said Monday that U.S. progress in Iraq is making insurgents more ``desperate'' and spurring attacks such as the bombings at the international Red Cross headquarters and three police stations across Baghdad that killed dozens of people.
And check out this ridiculous, tired old line!

Quote:
The president, sitting next to Bremer in the Oval Office, said those who are continuing to engage in violence ``can't stand the thought of a free society. They hate freedom. They love terror. They love to try to create fear and chaos.''

Yes, Marlena!

The more soldiers the guerillas kill, the more progress we are making!

What a spin!! The scary thing is, Americans have already proven to me that they are ignorant enough to buy any lies Bush and Co. serve up.....................
