Surprise, Surprise -- Shinseki Was Right, Wolfowitz Was Wrong


General Shinseki, who commanded the NATO peacekeeping force in Bosnia, testified before Congress in February 2003 that peacekeeping operations in Iraq could require several hundred thousand troops, in part because it was a country with "the kinds of ethnic tensions that could lead to other problems."

Days later, Mr. Wolfowitz, then the second-ranking official at the Pentagon, called the estimate "wildly off the mark," a sentiment that Mr. Rumsfeld repeated in comments that were widely interpreted in Washington and within the Pentagon as a rebuke of General Shinseki.

War Against The Generals
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Some Gen'rals say Rummy must go.
So I'm guessing they're traitors and foes.
Soon we'll hear that they're pals
With bin Laden, et al.
Or much worse, that they're Democrat bro's.

Subject: Marzipan art isn't


I showed my wife the marzipan baby at the end of the weekend
since she makes things of marzipan. She marveled, did a web search for
other examples, and showed me .
It's still cute, even if it isn't edible.

Thank you for writing.

Your wife is correct, in fact, I found this link  and Camille Allen is the sculptress.

I corrected my site.

Thanks again. I love the art. too.

Please, somebody tell me this is fiction


At the end of David Hare's antiwar docudrama about the run-up to the war in Iraq, after the applause, after the houselights went up and people in Off-Broadway's Public Theater were fumbling with their coats, a man in the audience shouted, "Please, somebody tell me this is fiction."....Hare depicts the powerful trio of Cheney ("I never met a weapons system I didn't vote for"), Rummy ("A war on terror. That's good. That's vague"), and Wolfie, Paul Wolfowitz ("That's what's good about Iraq. It's doable") as warmongers.





Rally 'round Rumsfeld: all those dissenting generals are just part of the liberal media's conspiracy to weaken our war effort.
