Say It Ain’t So, Joe Yo Mammana

Heh! Big surprise. Always nice to see old friends in the news. Unfortunately, I had a tip about the bit re Crime Stoppers. Sad to see it go that way. Asshole.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A convicted felon-turned-philanthropist who has offered reward money in several high-profile cases was arrested on a gun charge,...

Female Suicide Bomber: Al Qaeda Tactics In Somalia

November 30, 2006
By

Surprisingly, this today is only the second ever suicide bombing in Somalia. Given the scale of the attack directly on the government building, look for there to be many more.

How effective Ethiopia turns out to be, with our discreet help, of course, will likely determine how long it is before we...

Next Stop, Iran

And why not?

WASHINGTON, Nov. 30, 2006 —  U.S. officials say they have found smoking-gun evidence of Iranian support for terrorists in Iraq: brand-new weapons fresh from Iranian factories. According to a senior defense official, coalition forces have recently seized Iranian-made weapons and munitions that bear manufacturing dates in 2006.

Whoops, Sorry Again, AP

via Hot Air

Update: See-Dubya makes an excellent point about the “burned alive” story. If, as one eyewitness told the AP, all the victims were members of the al-Mashadani tribe, then even if it happened the way they said it happened, this may be less a case of sectarian violence than bad...

Why Fear The Left?

November 30, 2006
By

As I was saying over dinner with someone the other night, while I’m not crazy about the extreme far Right or the far Left, I fear the Left much more than I do the Right. Did you ever stop to think how most all of the dictators in this hemisphere are...

I’ll be blogging later. For now, Jules Crittenden weighs in on the Bush / Maliki meeting. But as for this,

The bipartisan Iraq Study Group reached a consensus on Wednesday on a final report that will call for a gradual pullback of the 15 American combat brigades now in Iraq but stop...

Not So Fast, Ed

November 30, 2006
By

Ed at Captain’s Quarters doesn’t think much of a WND article on illegal aliens and crime.

Those claims usually get reported at some point by World News Daily, a hardline conservative news service, which doesn’t usually miss an opportunity to relay the latest wild-eyed claim. Today, WND reports that Rep. Steve King...

Worse then snakes:

Passengers from the following flights are being asked to come forward:
• BA875 Moscow-Heathrow on October 25 – aircraft number GBNWX
• BA872 Heathrow-Moscow on October 28 – aircraft number GBNWX

Bloggers Versus The AP

November 29, 2006
By

One theory I have on the mosque attack in dispute between bloggers and the AP is that it could have been being used as a bomb factory in between prayers. It was alleged to have been one before in a story I linked yesterday. If another accident happened and the occupants...

This somewhat ticks me off.

Saudi Arabia Will Protect Sunnis if the U.S. Leaves

It ticks me off because the Saudis should be there already, not simply to protect Sunnis, but to help stabilize Iraq. They could still do a great deal even if it was only in training areas, as opposed to...

Jim Webb: One Trick Pony

November 29, 2006
By

Other than the Iraq War, Webb has nothing to offer the Democrats and absolutely nothing to offer America as a whole.

A man who is all about himself and only himself is not Senate material. Along with being rude, he’ll create plenty of problems for the Dems and probably not get...

I’d Rather Be Called A Bigot

November 29, 2006

Frankly, I don’t care if many civil libertarians and Liberals want to call me a bigot for opposing this below.

Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress, has announced that he will not take his oath of office on the Bible, but on the bible of...

Regarding the AP Story

November 29, 2006

In looking at the revised AP story on the six Sunnis allegedly burned, a couple questions.

It says:

One witness said he and other people from the neighborhood took the six immolation victims to the Sunni cemetery near Baghdad’s Abu Ghraib suburb and buried them after the gunbattle. That witness...

A Boy And His Dog

The Mark Levin Show has a website now. He’s been kind enough to mention items from this blog a few times. Along with some news links, there is an audio link from his show – its him talking of his two dogs. You can see the link here.

It caused me to...

Covering All The Bases

Geez, did I say bases? I’m sorry, I meant crosses! Yes, we must cover all the crosses, what will people think?

I mentioned that I was going to go searching in the Mojave Desert to find a small cross that I’d read about that had been ordered removed by a federal judge...

Iran: When Is Enough, Enough?

November 28, 2006

It’s really well past time for America to tell these third world, sheep herding religious zealots in Iran that we’re tired of the stupid games, so, excuse us while we reduce your war fighting capability back to the 8th century from whence you came.

Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei told visiting Iraqi...

Michelle Malkin posts: Standing Up To The Flying Imams – you had to know the thing was a set-up, they took basically the same seating positions as the 9/11 terrorists. Check the links.

And she also links Allah, who mentions Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison being at the event, yet no press curiosity...

How Many Terrorists?

How many terrorists have died in Iraq?

Who cares?

Still, it is nice to keep track!

This is the main page for the Terrorist Death Watch. It will always show the total to date, and have the current month’s activity. Prior months may be found in the links in the table at the bottom.

What the hell, it can’t be any worse than the Times of New York – who had their stock downgraded again today due to Internet competition.

SAMEER N. YACOUB – We Need To Look At This Guy

Update: And apparently he was on the scene when our contractors were burned and hung. He has several eye witness quotes.

Chanting "Fallujah is the graveyard of Americans," residents cheered after the grisly assault on two four-wheel drive civilian vehicles, which left both in flames. Others chanted, "We sacrifice our blood and...
