Generals and the Iraq War: FUBAR

On April 27, 2007 By

[Note: FUBAR = fucked up beyond all recognition for my non-military friends]

Lt. Col. Paul Yingling, deputy commander of the 3rd Armored Calvary Regiment, wrote a scathing indictment of the top brass in an article for Armed Forces Journal. It’s worth a read. In it he makes a couple points I wanted to highlight and comment on. I’ve been having several conversations lately about the war and had one just today with a friend.

A Parody Paradigm

On April 27, 2007 By

This is too funny. Fox News apparently is so desperate for right-wing drivel that they have resorted to reporting parody as actual news in an attempt to get the knuckle draggers to foam at the mouth.

The first debate of the 2008 Presidential race is behind us. The Democrat side was represented by far too many people – so much so that the wide view made it hard to distinguish between the candidates. The flag backdrop was nice though:

The bottom line is this pretty much means nothing in the bigger picture. I didn’t see anything that happened that might shake up the current balance other than Edwards appearing to fade somewhat.
