"This week, the administration sent another aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf— the second to deploy in the region."
That's from this article at Yahoo news, the headline of which is rather interesting:
"Democrats warn Bush not to attack Iran"
(As if he could give a shit.)
The point is, the effort by buttfuckboy to have a 21,500 troop "surge" in Iraq is a smokescreen, a distraction, something to divert our attention AWAY from what is happening in the Persian Gulf with the U.S. NAVY.
Any of you whippersnappers ever see the 1959 movie or read the novel "On The Beach"? "Plot Outline: The residents of Australia after a global nuclear war must come to terms with the fact that all life will be destroyed in a matter of months." For some reason I recall one of the characters (Fred Astaire?) saying something about how drinking copious amounts of alcohol could delay the effects of radiation poisoning. Maybe I'll add a few cases of booze to my "survival supply stock". That way, just maybe, mine can be the last voice on earth cursing the mad demons of darkness that inhabit the halls of power.
UPDATE: BTW, the Chinese did blast a satellite with one of their missiles lately. It was one of their "old" satellites. Guess it was just "practice" though. Read about it at Voice of America. My question is: All that shit that's been falling to earth lately--Are those comets, asteroids, and meteorites, or pieces of flaming wreckage?
