Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

Allies????

Well when it turns out that one of the big "LIES" the President was supposed to have told to get us into the war is part of a convoluted plot on the part of at least one of our "allies" it really makes you wonder.
the whole Niger yellowcake uranium thing is held up over and over by opponent of Bush as evidence that he lied tot he American people to get us to go to war. It has now come out that the information that led to this claim is in fact false, it was a set of forged documents. (this has actually been known for awhile) The new info is that former free lance Italian spy Rocco Martino is the man who supplied the documents. And to top this off, he says he was being paid by France to supply this false information to the US.

Senator Luigi Malabarba, who also attended Thursday's hearing, said in a telephone interview that General Pollari had told the committee that Mr. Martino was "offering the documents not on behalf of Sismi but on behalf of the French" and that Mr. Martino had told prosecutors in Rome that he was in the service of French intelligence.

A senior French intelligence official interviewed Wednesday in Paris declined to say whether Mr. Martino had been a paid agent of France, but he called General Pollari's assertions about France's responsibility "scandalous."


The Italians Intel service (Sismi) was apparently uninvolved in the fiasco and has been helping to straighten out the mess.

Now can someone tell me why we should care if France is on our side in this effort or not?

It's always the da/V\n French. We should kick their a$$ and be done with it. Couldn't be too hard, the Germans did it twice.

Jef - Couldn't be too hard, the Germans did it twice.

Actually, thrice. 1870-1871, WWI, and WWII.

Exmi - Have a wonderful weekend.

Actualy the French did fight. They fought with an out moded method of warfare. The Germans out Manuevered them, the French couldn't keep up. Nor could the British. The Germans avoided their main line of resistance(Their Fire Power) and punctured into France. True, they made ass's of themselves and propped up the second World War with the condidtions of the Armastice. But, that they just quit at the sight of Panzers is a myth.

As for what exMI is saying, I'll have to investigate it...Been a longh weekend.
Hey, exMI, how is the ads? I've considered it.

As for the effectiveness of making money with the ads, well, technicaly I have made money, I just haven't seen any of it yet. YOU have to have $100 in your account before they will pay you and my best month so far has earned me $13 and some change. so it is there, but not much.
