Osama bin Smilin'

A grand and glorious week for Osama. The finally-released story about the apparently widespread abuse of detainees in Iraq and elsewhere has fueled the already rampant, and mostly justified, resentment of the US by the Islamic world. But just as many Americans are finally learning of the crimes of their government and starting to question the invasion of Iraq and the other insane elements of the "war on terror," a video is released showing an American getting his head cut off. Never mind that "coalition" forces are still killing Iraqis by the dozen in Karbala, Najaf and Baghdad--the freepers are jumping all over this to justify any and all atrocities by our military.

Large-scale sanity in this country is very hard to come by, and very fragile once it is attained. And two powerful forces continue to do everything in their considerable power to keep sanity from truly taking root--the neocons led by George W. Bush and al Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden. Two sets of terrorists working together for their mutual benefit.
