The only thing that seems to be standing in the way of a preemptive attack on Iran's nuclear facilities is unusual-but-sensible foot-dragging by the U.S. military. It seems likely that the senior military leadership has told the president and Cheney: This time let us brief you on what to expect on Day 2, on Week 4, on Month 6 -- and on the many serious things Iran can do to Israel, and to us in Iraq and elsewhere.

In a very frank conversation with the Chicago Tribune's editorial board, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff told the nation his "gut feeling" is that something Al Qaeda is afoot this summer.
A DHS cafeteria employee then rang us to fill us in on the new Homeland Security Threat Level system.

In his most recent address, Bush announced that we were moving Patriot missile systems into Iraq. Why would we need defensive missile systems against people with rocks and IEDs?
Simple. They're not for use against insurgents, they're for use against Iran... who is buying accordingly.

We're evidently having some tremendous success over in that despotic hell-hole. The Weekly Standard gives us the lowdown on events leading up to the current bloodshed. Why don't we ever see video like this out of Iraq?

The armed forces, already struggling to meet recruiting goals, are considering expanding the number of noncitizens in the ranks, including disputed proposals to open recruiting stations overseas and put more immigrants on a faster track to U.S. citizenship if they volunteer, according to Pentagon officials.

The mission: Attack anywhere in the world in less than an hour. But is the Pentagon's bold program a critical new weapon for hitting elusive targets, or a good way to set off a nuclear war?

Last year, network TV brought us Over There, a dramatic series about the Iraq war. It was a new low in television: there had never before been a fictional series - entertainment, mind you - based upon a currently occurring military action.
The drive to downplay the horrors of war continues now on HBO with Hotel Palestine, a comedy set in the warzone where our boys and girls are dying and getting mangled on a daily basis.
How often do we need to see war in the environment of entertainment before we begin to see the war as entertainment? I'm sure the current administration would really, really like to know.

An incredible story of a marine who refused to get blown up.
And while we're on the subject, B.D., of Doonesbury fame, wore a helmet for years - from his football helmet, to his steel pot in Vietnam, right up to his kevlar in Iraq.
B.D. lost his helmet when he lost his leg to a roadside bomb. (GRAPHIC IMAGE)
Currently in the strip, B.D. is suffering from PTSD and recently started at the V.A. Rather than seeing him as damaged goods, the V.A. saw him as a hero. Hooah to Gary Trudeau!

You are standing inside a White House, having just been elected to the presidency of the United States. You knew Scalia would pull through for you.
There is a large desk here, along with a few chairs and couches. The presidential seal is in the middle of the room and there is a full-length mirror upon the wall.
What do you want to do now?

I haven't seen as much as I thought I would about this event yesterday on my random web and TV travels.
Thankfully there's no sluts hanging laundry in the foreground of this and other photos.
Sigh... I really hated that movie.

The Bush administration is significantly lowering expectations of what can be achieved in Iraq, recognizing that the United States will have to settle for far less progress than originally envisioned during the transition due to end in four months, according to U.S. officials in Washington and Baghdad.
