Obama

It's been almost a year since I've written anything here (and it's tempting to go that extra week to get to a full year, but it's also tempting to not do that.)

I'm not completely sure what the next direction is, but I'm beginning to suspect that Barack Obama might be the answer. You can do it, Obama. Get that nomination and show McCain and the rest of the red states what a president is supposed to be doing.

Although, it's a little sad to realize that a four-year presidential term won't be able to undo all of the damage of the Bush Administration. But it's a new direction, and gets us on the right path.

Don't make me move to Belgium.

US Claims Iran Gives Weapons to Iraq

Hot on the heels of their awesome intelligence before invading Iraq, the US has some new intelligence that also seems to be a little on the shaky side, if you'll allow me to keep my pessimism without it "emboldening the enemy" or anything like that. From The Washington Post article:
During a long-awaited presentation, held in Baghdad's fortified Green Zone, the officials displayed mortar shells, rocket-propelled grenades and a powerful cylindrical bomb, capable of blasting through an armored Humvee, that they said were manufactured in Iran and supplied to Shiite militias in Iraq for attacks on U.S. and Iraqi troops.

"Iran is a significant contributor to attacks on coalition forces, and also supports violence against the Iraqi security forces and the Iraqi people," said a senior defense official, who was joined by a defense analyst and an explosives expert, both also from the military.
Sure seems like some clueless president wants to start invading a new country, since the first two are going so wonderfully.
