I'd Rather Have a Stryker.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it distressing (and curious) that we are "fighting the war on terror" mainly with the lightweight HUMVEE, which was designed solely as a replacement in the 1980s for the venerable JEEP? And we wonder why we're getting our ass kicked by roadside IEDs?

Somehow I think our military hardware buildup under Reagan was squandered on S&L bailouts. And who's left holding the bag? The underequipped shlub in the field. Sweet planning, eh? Rumsfeld at least needs to start watching reruns of Rat Patrol.

Where Those Who Now Run the U.S. Government Came From and Where They Are Taking Us

By Wayne Madsen

After several months of in-depth research and, at first, seemingly unrelated conversations with former high-level intelligence officials, lawyers, politicians, religious figures, other investigative journalists, and researchers, I can now report on a criminal conspiracy so vast and monstrous it defies imagination. Using “Christian”groups as tax-exempt and cleverly camouflaged covers, wealthy right-wing businessmen and “clergy” have now assumed firm control over the biggest prize of all – the government of the United States of America.
