Not too happy with the news in general today.
North Korea is posturing, and may be getting ready to test-fire a missile towards Japan, which it’s criticizing for the planned launch of a spy satellite on Friday. India and Pakistan are testing more missiles, and India is accusing the US of having a double-standard when it comes to combating terrorism. (Of course we do — that should come as no surprise to anyone.)
Meanwhile, 1,000 Iraqi trucks are on a collision course with US Marines south of Baghdad, who incidentally don’t have much air-support at the moment because of sand-storms, the International Federation of Journalists is calling for an investigation into whether bombing of Iraqi TV was a violation of the Geneva Convention, and former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter believes that “we do not have the military means to take over Baghdad and… the defeat of the United States in this war is inevitable.”
At least Turkey has said it won’t send any more troops into Iraq.
Fun, fun, fun…
