To everybody visiting from Dawson Speaks.
Thanks for visiting my site. I am really honored to be Dawson's site of the week. I hope I can be worthy of both your time and the award.
The Wall Street Journal connects the first WTC bombing, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the World Trade Center terrorist attacks, finding some very disturbing conclusions. In short, there is a lot of smoke that connects Iraq to all of the cases.

Damn.
There is now official evidence that Iraq is developing nuclear power, which they are not supposed to be doing. Under the U.N. resolution that preceded the first Gulf War, the U.S. is encouraged to go and invade. I wonder what anti-war activists will use as their excuse now?
Britain is prepared to pay "blood price" for U.S.A.
Yet another reason for Americans to love the Britons. We love you, guys!

JESUS CHRIST! Andrew Sullivan is writing for Salon! Next: Pigs are flying, and hell is having a really good snow ball fight.
Former President Carter says the new face of America is troubling

Oh no! Mr. Carter "doesn't like" what our new administration is doing. This, coming from a man who:
A. As President, helped usher huge the economic downturn of America during the 1970's
B. Is known to to interact favorably with many tyrants, including Fidel Castro
C. Blatantly work against a current President's foreign policy, i.e. first Iraqi war (which is technically treason)
D. Made Israel give the most sweeping consessions to the Arab states
E. Did his damned best to help the government of China at every turn
and
F. Generally agreed by all of the U.S. to be one of the most ineffective presidents ever.
Gee, with all of those credentials, I wonder why the U.S. doesn't listen to him more?

There is a piece on National Review Online about Iran and its current situation. From the way the writer describes it, Iran is on the verge of falling apart now. I really do hope that the present government of Iran falls, and is replaced with a democratic one. Why? Because
1. A democratic Iran will set a good precedent for the rest of the middle east
2. A democratic Iran will stop funding of terroist groups all over the world. Currently, I think it is number one in terms of funding.
3. A democratic Iran will probably be pro-Israel. Like the Turks, Persians hate Arabs, and Arabs hate Persians. Once the hardline Islamic government is gone, Iran will probably make a whole bunch of profitable deals with Israel, just like Turkey.
4. In 10 years, the prescence of a democratic and pro-american Iran will hopefully result in a strong military for them. Once a democratic Iran has a strong military, it will enable the U.S. to withdraw some of our troops from the area.
Overall, good things for all!
Alert! Some genius in Europe is proposing an international tax!
I notice two problems right of the bat with this genius proposal:
1. How are you going to collect?
2. How would you be able to collect the money needed if the U.S. doesn't agree? Because from what I know, it won't agree.
President Bush is going to discuss the upcoming assault on Iraq with Congressional leaders.
As it should be. I'm all for invading Iraq, but I'm still glad to see that the President is going to consult Congress.
There goes our chance of getting rid of N'Sync.
Tokyo stocks are in a 19 year low. Hopefully, the american economy will go up, so that the Japanese economy can recover as well.

Comments seem to be working again.
I'm experimenting with a different color scheme for the blog, because the old one sucked. Give me some feedback on it.
Comments are currently down. Hopefully they will be up again soon.

The good Captain gives us some very interesting news. What the article basically boils down to is that Kuwait just got a deal for some major U.S. military equipment. What does this mean? It means that Kuwait has been a good little boy, and that they are going to support a war with Iraq. Good news on the whole. With Saddam out of the way, the middle east will get a whole lot better.
