More “NeoCon” Propoganda

Safa is a bent soda straw of a kid – 16 years old, tops, with a wisp of hair above his upper lip. He’s wearing a light blue shirt, and an AK-47 slung over his shoulder. The shirt means he’s a member of the local neighborhood watch in Fallujah – the eyes and ears of the police and the Marines here. And that entitles him to the automatic weapon.

But Safa wants more. He’s hoping soon to go to a police academy, so he can become one of the cops here, too. “Shoot gun!” he squeals and smiles, pointing his weapon in the air. Safa swears, just swears, that he’s 20, making him ready to be “I.P.,” an Iraqi policeman. But he can’t seem to get a badge saying so, just yet. For now, he takes chai orders at this concrete schoolhouse-turned-precinct-headquarters, AK in hand.

Three months ago, Am’r was driving a cab. Today, he’s an officer at the precinct house, in Fallujah’s Askeri district, on the northeast corner of town. A’mr served as an infantryman in Saddam’s army, he explains, combing his eyebrows and mustache. But, like Safa, he’s had no formal police training, Some of the other officers here call him “captain.”

Meet the new defenders of the city of Fallujah.

Sunday’s Best Sentence

Don Surber » Blog Archive » Dems should be like Bush

In the 1980s, we were told that Ronald Wilson Reagan was making the world a more dangerous place. The scientists had their Doomsday Clock set at 11:57. Doomed we were. All because of President Reagan. He was forcing those nice communist dictators to lock and load.

And since it was the scientific consensus, it had to be true. Scientists do politics about as well as reporters do math.

LMAO!!!
MATH LIKE hash!

////slashies FTW!
