This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

OK, I imagine you've heard the 'Bush lied' mantra over and over again -- I know I have. The first response to that is here. Of course, even if it isn't still true, as xrlq claims, it's not necessarily a lie, as -- of all people -- Bill Clinton had to point out.

The funny thing is, it appears that Saddam might have believed that he did have WMD, when in reality, he didn't. (Just follow the link and the instructions, and you'll see what I mean.) Or to the extent that he did know that there weren't any weapons, he felt he had to pretend that he did have them, or at the very least stand up to the Americans, in order to maintain the "respect" of the "Arab street". (And that's pronounced "A-rabb", or "eh-rabb", with "eh" the Canadian expression.)

Anyway, if you have any questions at all about what the heck we are doing in Iraq, I suggest you read this essay.

This is awesome. I miss Reno, but I don't miss the RGJ one iota. Click through to the story, and the guy backpedals a bit, saying it was a joke, and if it wasn't, he really meant Laughlin. Only way to make the Renoites happy, bag on Southern Nevada.
