The-World-Is-A-Safer-Place-Without-Saddam News


 

"Like any civilized country and organization, from time to time, we in America have to have a national conversation with ourselves. Ask tough questions about who we are; what we believe in; is our children learning; would we, in fact, would like fries with that; do we torture, which like any weighty question of ethics, is actually a question of semantics ...
[on screen: Rudy Giuliani saying the way torture has been defined in the liberal media shouldn't be done]. What is the liberal definition? I have the Liberal Dictionary right here. Let's see how they define waterboarding: 'something done by the evil troops, who we don't support, to innocent terrorists violating their rights to bomb our cities and make us get gay married.' I can see why he'd have a problem with that"
--Jon Stewart

 


 

 

 


 


 


 

Disturbing News


 

 



First Pakistan And Then…

MadKane.com
While Bush and Cheney are busily threatening World War 3 over of Iran’s potential future nuclear threat, their great nuke-possessing Pakistan pal President Gen. Pervez Musharraf has declared “emergency rule.” Are you feeling safer yet?

A pair of haiku to commemorate the occasion.

Musharraf declares
Martial law in Pakistan.
Bush lets freedom ring.

Emergency rule.
Constitution suspension.
Dick Cheney’s wet dream.

There is yet another closeted gay Republican in the news. A state
representative from the state of Washington got caught paying for sex at an
adult bookstore while he was on a legislative retreat. Is that what they are

calling it now? He was dressed as a woman in red stockings and black
sequined lingerie top. Or as Rudy Giuliani calls it, “Casual Fridays.”
- Bill Maher

Cheney Gaffe

 

"The people of Peru, I think, deserve better in their leadership. But that's obviously a matter they've got to resolve for themselves."

General Teaches Kids About Waterboarding

 

Army General Russel Honore said the general public shouldn't be so quick to condemn the use of waterboarding as an interrogation technique.

"I don't know much about it, but I know we're dealing with terrorists who do some very awful things to people," he said after Friday morning's speech to about 900 students at Flat Rock Middle School in Tyrone. "I know enough about [waterboarding] that the intent is not to kill anybody. We know that terrorists that we deal with, they have no law that they abide by. They have no code, they kill indiscriminately, like they did on 9/11."

A photo released by the Supreme Council of Antiquities and the National Geographic Society on May 10, 2005 shows a model of King Tutankhamun made by a French team based on facial reconstructions from CT scans of King Tutankhamun's mummy. Teams of forensic artists and scientists built models of the boy pharaoh's face based on some 1,700 high-resolution photos from CT scans of his mummy to reveal what he looked like the day he died nearly 3,300 years ago. The linen wrapped mummy of King Tut was put on public display for the first time on Sunday, Nov. 4, 2007, 85 years after the 3,000-year-old boy pharaoh's golden enshrined tomb and mummy were discovered in Luxor's famed Valley of the Kings.
