Hope gone for more survivors in Philippine landslike
FOXNews.com [AP] – U.S. & World News – Landslide Search Party Shifts Location of Digging
Rescuers, including U.S. Marines, suspended efforts to find survivors in the village school. Continued heavy rains, negative results from ground-penetrating radar, and perhaps 100 feet of mud covering the site made prospects of finding anyone alive in Guinsaugon extremely remote. There are over 100 confirmed deaths, with more than 1,000 missing.
Surprise of the Century—Iraqi WMD’s were removed before 2003 war!
Ex-Official: Russia Moved Saddam’s WMD
CIA can’t rule out WMD move to Syria – The Washington Times: Nation/Politics – April 27, 2005
WorldNetDaily: New evidence: Saddam’s WMD in Lebanon
Russian special forces, GRU, and other specialists, acting under standing “emergency exit” orders, were tracked by U.S. satellites as they sanitized Saddam’s WMD sites of any evidence of biological and chemical weapons production and moved the materials and equipment to the Bekka Valley in Lebanon, where the Syrians buried it in anticipation of the U.S. invasion in 2003.
Not that this should be a big surprise to anyone—-although I thought, for some reason, that Iran would also be involved, which doesn’t make that much sense in retrospect.
What is new and troubling is speculation on the motives of the U.S. administration in dismissing the evidence of Russian and Syrian involvment—that the Bush administration weathered a political firestorm which seriously damaged its credibility because it needed to avoid incrimination of the Russians in order to secure their political/diplomatic participation in control of Iran.
Oh, and the Chinese and French were also involved in Iraqi pre-war WMD production up to their eyeballs.
Did I mention that human civilization doesn’t actually work?

Boyington Memorial Nixed at U. of Wash.
Boyington was one of the most unique personalities in aviation history, and important to the understanding of the most devastating war in human history. Of course, 90% of college students are at least 250% of the nations most ignorant people. That’s why we send them to college—or was it so they can get us football tickets?
