US airstrike crosses over Pakistan border

Pakistan is our ally and a very, very important one at that. Pakistan is our ally that is harboring some of the top leaders of the two terrorist organizations American's fear most, al- Qaeda and the Taliban. Like most, I lump those two groups together as one group of fanatics whose cause can never be won. The US Military must show we are more than willing to strike anywhere and anytime at anyone who may threaten the homeland or our forces. The Pakistan region where these terrorist are hiding is an ancient region that the government cannot walk into without causing an uproar. But the Bush administration has to work on that land in some capacity as it is the one place in the region where our enemy may be hiding in vast numbers. Above all, bin Laden himself very well may be there. It's the score Bush has been waiting for. Whether he takes it remains to be seen.

War Bill Reaches $109 Billion

A senate vote raised the proposed bill from $94.5 billion to $109 billion even though President Bush has promised to veto anything over the original price tag. The whole process can be confusing as money from other projects is being taken away to fund new ones like the crisis in Darfur. The Senate and the President are going back and forth throwing around millions of dollars wherever it may be needed. Money needed to help sugar companies in Hawaii, money needed to repair the Gulf coast, and more money needed to spruce up port security. The problems are endless and thank the Lord that we are one of the riches nations there ever will be otherwise everything would fall apart without $100 billion spending bills from the government. Thank the forefathers for the democracy that we live in.

No Illegals = No Burritos


They're going to take away our burritos? If these illegals leave then we are all going to be stuck with Taco Bell. On the other hand, these protesters seem to be at peace with their place in our society. Some other signs read, " Who will pick your tomatoes?" and things of that nature. The immigrants know their place in America is to do the jobs that white people have too much pride for. They know their place and they just want to stay. As long as I can go down the street and grab a burrito, then I'm happy.

Article on Iraq protest tells story of everyday hurt

Women rising to the occasion in Iraq to demand better protection. Good to know. Reading on....two men emerge from Green Zone to record their concerns. Even better. Reading on... countless bullet-riddled bodies found all over Iraq. My God. The killing just does not stop. This is the result of attacking a nation that holds violence dear to its heart. Absolute bloodshed. Terrorist groups have come out and spoken against the inhuman tactics of al Qaida but here no one is against this. It's not America, it's not Bush, it's those people in Iraq who have gotten a taste for killing and love it. What Iraq presents to these killers is nothing other than an opportunity. There is no central establishment and murders, crimes of all sorts go unsolved. U.S. Military presence or not the peaceful ending to this time is far from happening.

It's Al Qaida vs. The World

All Muslims begin to condemn attacks


As an American, as an human being this article brought a sense of relief to me. Al Qaida attacks places of no strategic advantage and are clearly killing for the thrill, for the publicity. The only way those terrorist can stay in the news and in the minds of the people is to keep killing. It is because they are cowards and other terrorist are starting to realize it. The Hamas comes out against the attacks calling them, "criminal attacks against all human values." The attacks are against the innocent and there is nothing to gain from them politically except for their own downfall. Al Qaida is barely trying to target Americans anymore, they're killing Muslims their own kind. How can any Muslim organization stand behind that or remain neutral on the subject. It has been a long time coming but the world is starting to rise against Al Qaida as America cannot quell the terrorist organization on its own. Help will be needed and soon all will be against our greatest enemy.

In the Beginning.......

New Tower to be constructed


There was the tragedy of 9/11 and now we begin the rebuilding phase. Restoring the iconic building to the New York skyline is important not only for us but so future generations can see how their forefathers dealt with unprecedented circumstances. The new tower that will stand at 1776 feet will show the world that America will not cower and build lower. The entire process has been slowed by financial and artistic differences. 50 years from now people will look at the tower and now the story that lies behind it. The rebuilding should give all a reason to feel proud.

The tower has a post-modern, sophisticated look to it and the bottom is made of titanium that can repel a blast from a truck bomb. Awesome.

America the Beautiful

Gum chewer sent to jail


A trip to the local jail as reward for chewing gum. Sure it was a prestigious memorial ceremony for the founder of Turkey but arresting the man is as far as it could go. The man apologized but only after insulting the leaders memory by chewing some gum. Someone in America could give the guy a quick smack in the back of the head if they find gum chewing to be offensive. Sending him off to jail would probably equal a lawsuit. But in Turkey you get sent up the river. Ah, America the beautiful.
