BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - A suicide car bomber rammed into a crowded market in northern Iraq moments after a booby-trapped vehicle exploded Saturday, killing at least nine people and injuring 60, police said.

Well, I’ve never been TOO big to admit it when I am wrong, and I guess I was just plain wrong, Mr. Bush’s ’surge’ appears to be working, for Baghdad at least, bombings and deaths ARE down, in Baghdad… But the insurgents and terrorists are gearing up to kick ass in ‘other’ places… Imagine that… Here’s an idea, send in enough troops to actually get the job done and be sure to TELL the terrorists and insurgents that our guys coming, next thing you know, they’ll just go to Iran, easier ‘pickings’ for them, no U.S. Army and Marines to contend with, and THAT is a good thing…

UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Some 18,000 children die every day because of hunger and malnutrition and 850 million people go to bed every night with empty stomachs, a “terrible indictment of the world in 2007,” the head of the U.N. food agency said.

I’ve been called heartless before, maybe I am, I have a real problem working up any excitement over this one, most, if not ALL of the nations that have all these ’starving’ people would take our aid and keep it for themselves and STILL let their own people go hungry, and many of these ’starving’ nations are the very ones that sponsor the terrorists that would set off a bomb in OUR back yard if given the opportunity… Maybe they are experiencing ‘generational genocide’ but maybe they need to rethink THEIR ways, and ask themselves WHY conditions are SO bad in their country…

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told government leaders Saturday that the contentious debate in Washington over President Bush’s war strategy reflects U.S. doubts that democracy will take hold in Iraq. The chief U.S. diplomat, on an unannounced visit to the capital, acknowledged that people in both countries are impatient about signs of progress in post-Saddam Hussein Iraq.

As for me, that has been my fear from the very start, that the Iraqis aren’t capable of governing themselves, what example have they had?? The dictatorship of Saddam?? That is NO example, and that’s why I have felt that we should have taken control of Iraq, at least for a while, and taught them how to govern in a free nation, and gradually hand power TO them, not just dump it on em in one big heap, might have made a huge difference in this cluster f**k…

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - White House hopeful Barack Obama, taking a fellow black lawmaker to task, said Saturday voters are ready to elect a black president. “At every turn in our history, there’s been somebody who said we can’t,” the Democratic senator from Illinois told a nearly all-black audience of about 2,000 at Claflin University.

Maybe so, but YOU aren’t it… You’re a ‘half black’, mixed up mutt and a half-assed raghead wannabe… Way too much ‘half’ stuff for me… And my concern is NOT that you ‘claim’ blackness’, it’s the fact that you DO have a Muslim background, and regardless of how much you denounce it, and no matter how far back in your past it is America is NOT ready for a ‘closet Muzzie’ or an admitted ‘recreational narcotics’ user… We don’t need another Bill Clinton in the White House, and I feel this Obama would end up making ‘Bubba’ look like a choir boy…
