A Short & Sweet S&G
I think I've had an idea who's time has come. I think it's high time that Iran was wiped off the face of the map and given back to the Persians. If the Iranis what to have their own country, let Saudi Arabia make room for them - in the deepest desert.
Let's see - 150 pounds of plastic explosives, 2,500 blasting caps and 20,000 feet of det cord grow legs and vanish into the New Mexico night, and the ATF is investigating to see if terrorism is involved? What, do they think this is all for a child's birthday party fireworks? Almost four miles of det cord can destroy a lot of things all by itself - if I remember right, about 40 wraps around a telephone pole will destroy it quite nicely.
There was a little snippet I noticed in the story about the two chem and bio warfare women who were just released. Did anyone else pick up on them saying that they were indeed working on those weapons, but destroyed them before the March 2003 invasion? Nope, no weapons of mass destruction here - move along.
And how would you like to be a family who decided to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip to New York? You plan on seeing the lights and displays on Fifth Ave, maybe do some shopping on that famous (and woefully overpriced) street and, if time and ticket availability permitted, take in a show. You arrive at the airport - and find you can't get into the city unless you want to walk, thanks to the transport strike. They picked one of the best times of the year to inflict maximum damage to the city and its retailers. Congratulations, strikers - may everyone of you lose your jobs. And a Merry F'kin Christmas to each one of them, as they get fined on top of no income.
