  • Apparently Iraq is not a Quagmire

    My good friend Jonathan over at Irregular Times offers an excellent answer to the question:Has Iraq become a quagmire for the US?: Quagmire: area of land with soft, sticky, muddy surface.

  • Those “Bumps in the Road” are Iraqi dead

    Christopher over at Back to Iraq has recently returned to Iraq and writes about the Bumps in the Road: Since returning, it feels like I’m listening to the same record I’ve been listening to for a year, only with the volume turned up.

  • Impeachable Offenses

    I think I’ll be taking a brief break from impeach Bush posts this week. As much as I’d like to see that happen this is not the “Impeach Bush Blog”. Truth is, and this is plain as day at this point, the problem goes far deeper than war criminals such as Bush and Cheney. The […]
