Turkish chief sees U.S. hypocrisy
Topic: Current Events 1:50 pm EST, Jan 24, 2003

] RECEP TAYYIP Erdogan, chairman of the governing Justice
] and Development Party, said eliminating nuclear,
] biological and chemical weapons in Iraq was a worthy
] goal.
] This sounds good,%u201D he said in his first
] appearance at the World Economic Forum in Davos,
] Switzerland. But lets not kid ourselves.
] No one is interested in eliminating their
] own weapons of mass destruction. They're interested
] in strengthening their own weapons of mass
] destruction.
] Asked if he was accusing the United States of
] hypocrisy, Erdogan said: I meant all the countries
] in the world. The United States is also included.

] ""The Defense Department claims 12 nations with nuclear
] weapons programs, 13 with biological weapons, 16 with
] chemical weapons, and 28 with ballistic missiles as
] existing and emerging threats to the United States. But
] only one of those countries sits atop the second largest
] oil reserves in the world."
] # Charles Peña, Senior Defense Policy Fellow of the Cato
] Institute, for The Chicago Tribune
] NEW YORK--The American invasion of Iraq promises to be a
] blockbuster. They've designed the logos, focus-grouped
] the test audiences, and run the trailers. At this late
] date Bush wouldn't dare disappoint us with a boring old
] peace agreement. There's just one thing still missing
] from the script: the happy ending."

Iraq will define 2003
Topic: Current Events 1:54 pm EST, Jan  3, 2003

] "Thomas Friedman, the foreign affairs columnist for the
] New York Times and probably the best we have in that
] field, came out with the biggest number: $1 trillion. If
] that turns out to be correct -- or even if the perception
] develops that it might be -- it could wreck any chance
] for a major recovery in our economy and of our financial
] markets in 2003.
] For the only way for our government to meet that bill
] would be to borrow that $1 trillion dollars. Saudi Arabia
] and Kuwait picked up almost all of the cost of the First
] Gulf War. Not this time. Nor is there any chance that
] increased tax receipts will limit governmental borrowing
] needs, with the outlook for rapid economic recovery
] non-existent at the moment."

Use your Dr. Evil voice when I said $1 Trillion dollars!

NPR : The Mideast : A Century of Conflict
Topic: Current Events 1:21 pm EST, Jan  3, 2003

[ Forwarded to me in an e-mail and recommend into MemeStreams
as I believe this will be of significant general interest.
--Rek ]

Last fall NPR did a series of broadcasts on the history of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. The whole series was broadcast on KQED last night. Its very factual and provides an excellent overview of the historical roots of the problem. It does not place blame on either side, but simply tells what happened. You can listen to the whole series in an hour and I highly recommend it.

British police foil drug-smuggling chicken legs
Topic: Current Events 1:03 pm EST, Jan  3, 2003

] "British police said on Friday they had foiled an attempt
] to smuggle fried chicken legs stuffed with cannabis to a
] gunman involved in one of Britain's longest armed sieges
] on record.
] Detectives agreed to let the gunman order the food in a
] bid to persuade him to end the stand-off at a house in
] east London where he has been holding a man hostage for
] more than a week.
] But when officers examined the food delivered by a friend
] of the gunman on Sunday, they found the cooked chicken
] was full of cannabis, a police spokeswoman told Reuters.
] The next day when the same friend came back with another
] chicken meal, police arrested him and discovered more
] cannabis inside the food. "

Now that is funny......

Bush Stresses Iraq, N. Korea Differences
Topic: Current Events 9:14 am EST, Jan  3, 2003

] "President Bush again drew a sharp distinction yesterday
] in his policies toward Iraq and North Korea, telling
] reporters that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's "day of
] reckoning was coming" but that he was sure the "situation
] with North Korea will be resolved peacefully."
] The president's remarks, made as he was vacationing at
] his ranch in Crawford, Tex., underscored the
] administration's determination to play down the crisis
] over North Korea's vow to restart a nuclear reactor as
] the United States presses ahead with a potential military
] conflict in Iraq.
] "He's a danger to the American people; he's a danger to
] our friends and allies," Bush said of Hussein. "For 11
] long years, the world has dealt with him. And now he's
] got to understand, his day of reckoning is coming.
] Therefore, he must disarm voluntarily.""

Saddam is about to get blown off the map. He better be
digging in cause we have some new heavy 30 ton bunker
busters with his name on it.
