Illegal aliens murder 12 Americans daily

While the military "quagmire" in Iraq was said to tip the scales of power in the U.S. midterm elections, most Americans have no idea more of their fellow citizens – men, women and children – were murdered this year by illegal aliens than the combined death toll of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan since those military campaigns began.

French Soldiers Among First Peacekeepers to Land in Lebanon

French soldiers landed in Lebanon on Saturday, the first reinforcements for an expanded U.N. peacekeeping force tasked with keeping the truce in the Israel-Hezbollah conflict. About 50 French troops -- military engineers -- were to prepare for the arrival of 200 more soldiers expected next week, said Cmdr. Bertrand Bonneau, a spokesman for the French contingent. ()() How the hell are "engineers" going to enforce the peace? I guess the French don't have any real fighting men because they're used to running the white flag up the flagpole.

'Black spinster' label pinned on Condi Rice

While U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has been in the Middle East meeting regional alongside Israel's military campaign in Lebanon, media outlets controlled by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party the past few days have been using racist rhetoric in their reports, referring to the American representative as the "black woman," "raven," "colored dark skinned black lady" and "black spinster."

The Naval Academy's sex trap

Both of Washington's daily newspapers, the Times and Page 1 of the Post, as well as the top of Page 1 of the Baltimore Sun, reported that midshipmen Lamar Owens, co-captain of Navy's football team, has been found not guilty of raping a female midshipman. But, this quarterback and most valuable player of the Mids' bowl-winning and Commander in Chief's Trophy team could face up to two years in a military prison, as well as dismissal from the Navy for conduct unbecoming an officer. If there is any such punishment of this male midshipman, such decision simply begs the question -- which went unmentioned in all three of these daily newspapers: What about the female fornicator who charged that she was raped -- which the court martial concluded was a false accusation, a lie, an accusation that for months has led this young male midshipman through hell -- with the possibility of life in prison?

A nation of sheeple

President Bush informed the nation, during a press conference, that he might seek to use the U.S. military to quarantine parts of the nation should there be a serious outbreak of the deadly avian flu that has killed millions of chickens and 60-some people in Southeast Asia.
