Peace Symbol drawing for Dummies and other Sunday stuff...

Good catch, Michelle Malkin. Good for a snicker or two, at least.

Rumsfield says leaving Iraq now would be like leaving postwar Germany with the Nazis. Well...DUH. Of course it would be. This is news? I thought it was common sense. Are people stupid enough to think that this war would be over in a year? Contrary to what the MSM wants you to believe, Iraq has drafted a constitution, the Iraqi Police have taken over the vast majority of security functions. There is sectarion violence and things like that, but overall the seeds of democracy has been planted and we can't leave. Period. I thought that was obvious. 'Course I also thought it was obvious that we would go INTO Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11, but I found out the hard way that there are people out there that believe war never solved anything. Except for ending communism, fascsim...oh, but you've seen the bumpersticker. :)

From Lucianne, more translated documents and commentary...don't look for this in the MSM. Ever.
These documents add to the growing body of evidence confirming the Iraqi regime's longtime support for terrorism abroad. The first of them, a series of memos from the spring of 2001, shows that the Iraqi Intelligence Service funded Abu Sayyaf, despite the reservations of some IIS officials. The second, an internal Iraqi Intelligence memo on the relationships between the IIS and Saudi opposition groups, records that Osama bin Laden requested Iraqi cooperation on terrorism and propaganda and that in January 1997 the Iraqi regime was eager to continue its relationship with bin Laden. The third, a September 15, 2001, report from an Iraqi Intelligence source in Afghanistan, contains speculation about the relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda and the likely U.S. response to it.
More: A must-read post over at Amy Proctor's blog. Well-researched and written as usual.

Have a fantastic Sunday, ya'll!
