Mondays Madness: 02-19-07… Mid Day Edition…

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Insurgents launched a brazen coordinated attack on a U.S. combat post Monday, sending in a suicide bomber and clashing with American troops. Two U.S. soldiers were killed and 17 wounded, the military said. The assault began with a suicide bomber exploding a vehicle outside the base north of Baghdad, said the military statement. It gave no further details beyond the number of dead and wounded.

Well, is the ’surge’ making the insurgents bolder or has it made them more desperate?? That’s a fair question I think, and honestly, I’d love to say it was an act of desperation but I just don’t know, and neither does anyone else on our side, seems like the troops, on a lot of levels, aren’t able to get a message out at the moment, but the MSM can…

NEW YORK (AP) - Researchers are trying to find ways to regrow fingers - and someday, even limbs - with tricks that sound like magic spells from a Harry Potter novel. There’s the guy who sliced off a fingertip but grew it back, after he treated the wound with an extract of pig bladder. And the scientists who grow extra arms on salamanders. And the laboratory mice with the eerie ability to heal themselves.

Science Finds New Ways to Regrow Fingers

This is a weird story but if it can actually work, and help those that have lost fingers, and possibly limbs, I would think it’s worth a shot, ‘Weird Science’ at it’s best…

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Supporting herself and a 7-year-old son on a preschool teacher’s salary in suburban Marin County, one of the nation’s priciest housing markets, keeps Russian immigrant Sveta Nikitina on a tight budget. One expense she can’t control is the rising cost of filing the forms she needs to work and travel in the United States while she waits to become a permanent resident.

Here is one of those stories the MSM likes to run, it’s intended to spur some ‘feelings’ from all of us ‘hard-assed’ folks that want to see American citizenship not made readily available to just anyone… Well guess what, I know what it’s like to have to deal with the Federal government, as a U.S. citizen, and I just can’t work up any sympathy for her, our government isn’t properly taking care of it’s own people, you doubt that, ask a Veteran…

JERUSALEM (AP) - The first set of three-way talks among Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Israeli and Palestinian leaders, initially billed as a new U.S. push to restart peace efforts, ended Monday with little progress other than a commitment to meet again.

Mideast Talks End With Little Progress

There can be peace in the Mid-East, and it will happen when the USA stops holding Israel back and when Israel places a real WARRIOR in charge… A real warrior?? Hmmm?? After they get one, do you suppose they’d let us borrow him for a while?? We could use a REAL warrior…

WASHINGTON — Usama bin Laden and his No. 2 man, Ayman al Zawahiri, are rebuilding the Al Qaeda terror group along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, but the bases are smaller and lieutenants are less experienced, a U.S. official said Monday. The American official was confirming a story reported in Monday’s New York Times that said a band of training camps has popped up in Pakistan along the Afghan border and the leadership chain of command has been re-established despite an “erosion” of leadership after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Al Qaeda Rebuilds Along Afghanistan Border

If WE know about it, and the MSM knows about it, WHY aren’t we bombing the living crap out of these sites?? I wonder if ‘The Little Prince’ can answer that?? Is allowing al-Qaeda to rebuild a less important task on Mr. Bush’s list of things to do?? Afghanistan is where we should have exercised our ‘might’ and wiped al-Qaeda, and the Taliban, from the face of this earth…

    I’m more inclined to think it is making them desperate…..butthen again, they already were. It called way down the last few weeks. And the “surge” hasn’t even taken effect as of yet.

    On the camps, I agree, they should have ceased to exist before the ink was dry on the newspaper.

    “On the camps, I agree, they should have ceased to exist before the ink was dry on the newspaper.”

    Well Jenn, according to MSM sources, ‘The Little Prince’ doesn’t want to hit em because since it’s in Pakistan it may cause the Paki president, Pervez Musharraf problems he just doesn’t need…

    Frankly, I think we’ve been lied to again, didn’t Bush say that we would pursue terrorists ANYWHERE they tried to hide?? Anywhere they took refuge??

    Well, here’s the deal, Bush needs to put up or shut up, I hate to say this but I don’t believe one word that comes out of his mouth anymore…
