Archaeologists think they've found King Herod's tomb. The archaeological geek in me is going "SQUEE!"
And I have "King Herod's Song" stuck in my head...So you are the Christ, yes, the great Jesus Christ...prove to me that you're no fool: walk across my swimming pool!
Sorry. I have no snark for that. I just thought it was neat.
Cheney will visit the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, as well a US aircraft carrier in the Gulf. Why? To try to convince them to "help" us "tame" Iraq. The areas surrounding Iraq are mostly Sunni (as opposed to "sunny", but I guess that's true, too), a stark contrast to the Shiite sect in Iraq, which makes up about 60% of the total population of the country.
Methinks this is another tactic to stay in Iraq as long as possible.
The White House is bickering with Kansas over the amount of response by National Guard Members in relation to Iraq. Of course they are.
Whether there's a shortage of Guard members or not, the fact remains that situations like Iraq are NOT what the U.S. National Guard was formed for. It's not the Iraqi National Guard, is it? The Mexican National Guard? Nope. UNITED STATES. Why the hell are we sending them to Iraq to fight this stupid war when there are things over here that they could be helping with?
Our country's troubles don't stop just because there's a war elsewhere. Jackasses.
More proof that the UN is pretty useless. Basically, the story is that Russia and China are rumored to have traded weapons with Darfur illegally. Wah, right? The only people who seem to have a problem with this are the ones in the UN. Call me naive, but a group that doesn't seem to do anything but slow things to a crawl when they're not sure what's going on should probably not be calling the shots where weapons are concerned. I call that a recipe for disaster.
And that's all I've got for now. The Shield comes on in a few minutes. I love that show. Vic is my freakin' TV hero.
