World skeptical over Guantanamo ruling

LONDON - Some saw the beginning of the end for Guantanamo Bay, others a vindication for Europeans who have condemned the U.S. prison camp. Still others saw a toothless ruling that will ultimately make no difference in a climate where they believe Washington is determined to have its way.

The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling Thursday that President Bush overstepped his authority in ordering military trials for a handful of Guantanamo Bay detainees provoked a range of reactions, from jubilation to deep skepticism.

In immediate terms, the decision will simply force the United States to look for other ways to try some 10 men charged with crimes. But some people saw wider implications — predicting it could force the Bush administration to address the continued detention of about 430 others, many held for more than four years without charge.

"A lot of us remain skeptical of what this decision will actually accomplish because it only applies to the handful of men who have been charged and Bush has not respected past court decisions," said Moazamm Begg, 37, who was held at Guantanamo for more than two years. "That said, I'm very glad to hear the news and hope it will be the beginning of the end for many of these men."

Well it would seem that the opponents of the Bushadministrationn have won a victory. In my opinion a very hollow one, Bush will not close Gitmo and he will not just free all the terrorists.
The libs would love to have this all fall under the criminal courts, that way all the terrorist would be able toreceivee our rights andcounsell from the ACLU. Everyone talks big about the Geneva Convention as some how it applies to the people we are fighting.
1- They do not have a name, rank and serial number.
2- They are not uniformed soldiers of a state.
3- They do no observe these rights for our soldiers and target women and children.
Now tell me again why I have to treat these scum as I would a soldier from say Germany or France if had any real soldiers. As far as I am concerned anyone who raises arms against the USA should be shot on the spot, no questions asked! Now is the time to act, not later my friends.

Israelis arrest dozens of Hamas officials

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Israeli troops rounded up dozens of ministers and lawmakers from the Palestinians' ruling Hamas party Thursday, including the deputy prime minister, while forging ahead with a military campaign in Gaza meant to win the release of an Israeli soldier held by Hamas gunmen.

The body of a kidnapped 18-year-old Jewish settler was found in the West Bank, Israeli security officials said. He had been shot in the head. Palestinian militants said they killed Eliahu Asheri, whose body was found buried near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Israeli aircraft targeted a car carrying Palestinian militants in Gaza City, the Israeli military said, but witnesses said the missile missed the vehicle and Mahdi Dahdouh, an Islamic Jihad activist, escaped from the car. Another unidentified person was wounded, hospital officials said.

On Wednesday, Israeli warplanes also buzzed the summer home of Syria's president, Bashar Assad, who harbors the hard-line Hamas leaders who Israel says ordered the kidnapping.

Sunday's capture of the Israeli soldier, Cpl. Gilad Shalit by Hamas' military wing and two affiliated groups, and Israel's subsequent military incursion into Gaza threatened to bring the two sides to the brink of all-out war.

Hamas, which took over the Palestinian Authority after winning parliamentary elections in January, has resisted international pressure to renounce violence and recognize Israel's right to exist.

Tensions across the Arab world have risen since the crossing into Gaza by the Israeli army. While no one like to see people suffer of get hurt, that is not the case with the inhabitants of Gaza, these murderous barbarians have been killing innocent people for far long enough. All of you libs are up in arms saying we need a peaceful solution, well I don't know if they have been paying attention or not, but Israel has done everything to try and work towards peace. It is the Palestinians that have killed and bombed and attacked constantly with rockets. Israel can no longer stand by and see the murder of it's people and the continued threat materialize while doing nothing. I stand by the completly!

Israelis Bomb Camp, Cut Power And Water In Gaza

RAFAH, Gaza Strip -
Israel turned up the pressure on Palestinian militants to release a captive soldier Wednesday, sending its warplanes to bomb a Hamas training camp after knocking out electricity and water supplies for most of the 1.3 million residents of the Gaza Strip.

The Hamas-led Palestinian government called for a prisoner swap with Israel, saying the Gaza offensive would not secure the soldier's release. Militants holding the hostage have made that demand, but this was the first time the government made such a proposal.


In a statement, the Information Ministry said it was "natural logic" to carry out an exchange.
"This has been exercised by previous Israeli governments with Hezbollah and the PLO, and this is what other countries do in conflict situations," the statement said.

Its for the best that Israel has entered the Gaza Strip, the head cutting maniacs need to be stopped and shown the power of rifle and the bomb. These efforts to rescue Cpl. Gilad Shalit, who was captured during an attack on an Israeli military post Sunday, may or may not succeed, but more importantly it tells the Palestinians that Israel will not accept this constant bombardment of its people and there attack on the military. They must crush them before they gain to much power and that my friends is the truth!

Israel masses forces near Gaza

NIZMIT HILL, Israel (Reuters) -
Israel massed tanks and troops near Gaza on Tuesday for a threatened offensive against Palestinian militants and said it would target Hamas leaders if an abducted soldier was not freed.

In northern Gaza, Palestinians blocked roads with dirt and barbed wire. Militants wielding automatic rifles and anti-tank rockets rigged explosive devices along a road as tensions hit their highest since Israel quit Gaza nearly a year ago.

The United States urged Israel to give diplomatic negotiations a chance to win the release of Corporal Gilad Shalit, who was seized on Sunday by militants who also killed two soldiers in a raid on an army border post.

Israel's military build-up came as Palestinian factions put aside months of internal acrimony and agreed on a manifesto at the heart of a power struggle between the moderate President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas.

The proposal calls for a Palestinian state alongside Israel. But the governing Hamas movement rejected suggestions the deal could imply recognition of Israel, which it is sworn to destroy.

Get The Rest Of The Story At Yahoo News

It is about time that Israel acted with force and purpose. They have been forced to withstand shelling from the Gaza Strip since they left. They had hoped that with that goodwill gesture, violence would subside and a plan for peace could be achieved. With the terrorist group Hamas winning the lastest elections tensions have been on a sharp increase. Hamas must be dealt with, they in fact have in there charter the destruction of Israel, this cannot be allowed. These scum would think nothing of destroying that country and killing as many of us as they could. They ask for no quarter and they should be given none.

White House plays down Iraq withdrawal talk

WASHINGTON - The White House on Monday played down reports that the United States is planning sharp troop withdrawals from Iraq, beginning with the pullout of two combat brigades in September.

"I would caution very strongly against everybody thinking, `Well, they're going to pull two brigades out,'" White House press secretary Tony Snow said.

"Maybe they will, maybe they won't," he said. "It really does depend upon a whole series of things that we cannot at this juncture predict. I would characterize this more in terms of scenario building and we'll see how it proceeds."

Snow confirmed that Gen. George W. Casey Jr., the top military commander in Iraq, met with
President Bush on Friday.


Snow refused to disclose what Casey told Bush but said the general has "a number of scenarios in mind for differing situations on the ground." He said planning would change based on conditions on the ground.

"But I'm certainly not going to announce in advance anything that he may have in mind for the president or that he may be recommending," Snow said. "Just don't do that in a time of war."

Get The Rest Of The Story At Yahoo News

I have no problem with the withdrawal of troops, after all I want them to come back to inspite of what you liberals might think. The difference is that I want our troops to complete the mission, not tuck tail and run, like Murtha and Kerry would have us do. The President has said multiple times that the conditions on the ground would determine when our troops come home, what don't you liberals get, hell the Iraqis want us there. They know as we do that if we leave to early it would be a disastrous for the Iraqi people. We must stay the course, not do an about face when things get hard.

Bush slams leak of terror finance story

WASHINGTON -
President Bush on Monday sharply condemned the disclosure of a program to secretly monitor the financial transactions of suspected terrorists. "The disclosure of this program is disgraceful," he said.


"For people to leak that program and for a newspaper to publish it does great harm to the United States of America," Bush said, jabbing his finger for emphasis. He said the disclosure of the program "makes it harder to win this war on terror."

The program has been going on since shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. It was disclosed last week by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times.
Using broad government subpoenas, the program allows U.S. counterterrorism analysts to obtain financial information from a vast database maintained by a company based in Belgium. It routes about 11 million financial transactions daily among 7,800 banks and other financial institutions in 200 countries.


"Congress was briefed and what we did was fully authorized under the law," Bush said, talking with reporters in the Roosevelt Room after meeting with groups that support U.S. troops in
Iraq.


"We're at war with a bunch of people who want to hurt the United States of America," the president said. "What we were doing was the right thing."

"The American people expect this government to protect our constitutional liberties and at the same time make sure we understand what the terrorists are trying to do," Bush said.

He said that to figure out what terrorists plan to do, "You try to follow their money. And that's exactly what we're doing and the fact that a newspaper disclosed it makes it harder to win this war on terror."

I guess the Liberals and Democrats really do want us to lose, that they want to do anything that they think will hurt the Bush administration, it makes me sick.

Iraq debate in Senate shows Dems' split

WASHINGTON - So much for consensus. Fissures in the Democratic Party over
Iraq will be on display Wednesday when the Senate takes up two proposals to withdraw U.S. forces, touching off an election-year showdown between Republicans and Democrats.

"Setting a deadline to redeploy U.S. troops from Iraq is necessary for success in Iraq," Sen.
John Kerry, D-Mass., said in remarks planned for his introduction of a proposal that would require U.S. combat forces to begin leaving the war zone immediately and be out of Iraq completely by July 1, 2007.

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid and most of his rank-and-file colleagues don't exactly agree.

They back a separate nonbinding resolution that would not set such a hard-and-fast deadline. It would simply call for ‚ not require ‚ the administration to begin a phased redeployment of U.S. forces this year.

"It's not a cut-and-run strategy. It does not set a fixed timetable or an arbitrary deadline for the redeployment of our troops," said Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, ranking Democrat on the Armed Services Committee. To that end, Levin said, "We believe it represents where a majority of our caucus is."


Get The Rest Of The Story At Yahoo News

Well It's very obvious that the Democrats no matter what they say are the party for cut and run. They want to hand over Iraq to the murderers. When two US troops that they found where very severely beaten and tortured and than there heads cut off, it gets worse but i wont go into it here. After seeing that they still want to concede to enemymemy and it makes me sick.
We need to unleash our full capability to wage war and end this NOW! Kick the media out, kick everyone out who is not helping and shut that fucking country down today, and kill that terrorist leader fuck, I want to watch as his head is cut off and than we could stick a little American flag in his neck when it's all over! Hell we should hang him in a public square, that would be fun also.

Bodies of missing U.S. soldiers recovered


BAGHDAD, Iraq - The bodies of two U.S. soldiers reported captured last week have been recovered, and an Iraqi defense ministry official said Tuesday the men were "killed in a barbaric way." The U.S. military said the remains were believed to be those of Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston, and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker, 25, of Madras, Ore.

U.S. Maj. Gen. William Caldwell said U.S. forces — part of a search involving some 8,000 American and Iraqi troops — found the bodies late Monday near Youssifiyah, where they disappeared Friday.

Troops did not recover the bodies until Tuesday, however, because U.S. forces had to wait until daylight to cordon off the area for an ordnance team for fear it was booby-trapped, Caldwell said.

Al-Qaida in Iraq claimed responsibility for killing the soldiers, and said the successor to slain terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi had "slaughtered" them, according to a Web statement that could not be authenticated. The language in the statement suggested the men had been beheaded.

Bush gives Iran an ultimatum on uranium

KINGS POINT, N.Y. -
President Bush told Iran on Monday that nations worldwide won't back down from their demand that Tehran suspend uranium enrichment.

"Iran's leaders have a clear choice. We hope they will accept our offer and voluntarily suspend these activities so we can work out an agreement that will bring Iran real benefits," Bush said a day before leaving for Vienna, Austria, where he will talk with European Union officials who are leading efforts to resolve the nuclear dispute.


If Iran's leaders reject the offer, they will face action before the U.N. Security Council and progressively stronger political and economic sanctions, Bush said during a commencement speech at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Bush discussed Iran with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday during an 18-minute phone call Putin placed to Bush. "The presidents agreed on the importance of remaining united in their efforts to press Iran to suspend all enrichment activities and begin negotiations on the incentives package," said Kate Starr, a spokeswoman for the National Security Council.

On Sunday, Iran accused the United States of trying to sway European nations from a possible compromise. The Iranian foreign ministry said U.S. insistence that negotiations be conditioned on Tehran's suspension of uranium enrichment has narrowed the scope of possible solutions, and made it more difficult for all parties to reach an accord.

Bush made it clear he would not budge. He said allowing Iran to enrich uranium, a process that can make nuclear fuel for a power plant or fissile material for an atomic bomb, would present a grave threat to the world.

Get The Rest Of The Story At Yahoo News

It seems that President Bush is riding the wave of success after the killing of the terrorist mastermind Abu Mussab Al-Zarqawi and his surprise visit to Iraq. As he should he is in a position of power backed bye the house and senate passing resolutions backing the Presidents war policy. Of course the Democrats came out in force making themselves easy targets for those of us who have heard there stupid comments. They have made it very clear that they would rather cut and run, admit defeat than stand and fight. If this is the message they are trying convey, than the Democrat will have a very depressing election night coming soon!
I don't know anyone who truly believes that Iran will fully comply with the international request, we should exhaust every avenue before war is contemplated but Iran has made it very clear that they want to destroy Israel, a close ally of ours. If they continue to threaten our ally they will act and than we will be forced to do so aswell. It should worry Iran that we are only next door and it would be no problem to kick the shit out of them too!

House rejects timetable for Iraq pullout

WASHINGTON - The House on Friday handily rejected a timetable for pulling U.S. forces out of Iraq, culminating a fiercely partisan debate between Republicans and Democrats feeling the publics apprehension about war and the onrushing midterm campaign season.

In a 256-153 vote that mirrored the position taken by the Senate earlier, the GOP-led House approved a nonbinding resolution that praises U.S. troops, labels the Iraq war part of the larger global fight against terrorism and says an "arbitrary date for the withdrawal or redeployment" of troops is not in the national interest.

"Retreat is not an option in Iraq," declared House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio. "Achieving victory is our only option ... We have no choice but to confront these terrorists, win the war on terror and spread freedom and democracy around the world."

Well it's about time that the Republicans use there position of power to press the Democrats on the war on terror. The Dems have invested everything in our defeat, and can't wait to cut and run. Those 153 people who voted against this resolution need to be visited by one of these crazy towelhead fucks and see if they let you go, odds are your gonna see a sword or a dull knife above you neck ready to saw your head off. Do you Libs not get it, we are at WAR, figure it out! War is not a great or pretty thing, as the saying goes "War is hell", and that statement is true. People we are in it for the long haul and victory will be ours, the democrats and libs will continue to degrade the Army while living under the freedoms that they provide.

House boots Jefferson from committee

WASHINGTON - The House stripped Democratic Rep. William Jefferson of his committee seat on Friday in an unprecedented action against a lawmaker ensnared in scandal, but not under indictment.

The move came on a voice vote, without debate, and capped an election-year effort by House Democrats to seize the political high ground on the issue of lawmaker ethics.

Jefferson had refused to step aside voluntarily from the powerful House Ways and Means Committee before the corruption probe was completed. The drive to remove him from the committee, led by the Democratic leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, sparked protests by black lawmakers who said Jefferson was being singled out unfairly.

Jefferson had no immediate response to the vote. On Thursday night, he issued a statement criticizing Pelosi over the "unprecedented and unfair nature of her request for me" to step aside.

Sweep nets nearly 2,100 illegal immigrants

BOSTON - A blitz by federal agents during the last three weeks captured nearly 2,100 illegal immigrants across the country in raids targeting child molesters, violent gang members and past deportees who re-entered the country.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials credited the roundup to a network of 35 fugitive apprehension teams.
"This is a massive operation," said Marc Raimondi, a spokesman for immigration enforcement or ICE, which is part of the Department of Homeland Security. "We are watching the country's borders from the inside.


The crackdown, dubbed "Operation Return to Sender," kicked off May 26. An Associated Press reporter and photographer accompanied a fugitive task force as it made raids Tuesday night and early Wednesday.
A swarm of immigration agents had sped silently, headlights off, down a Boston side street and surrounded an apartment house.


"Police! Policia! Police!" Monico yelled, holding his badge to a window where someone had pulled back the curtain. "Open the door!"
Soon agents led a dazed-looking Jose Ferreira Da Silva, 35, out in handcuffs. The Brazilian had been arrested in 2002 and deported, but had slipped back into the country. He now faces up to 20 years in prison.


"This sends a message," said Daniel Monico, a deportation officer, after a successful raid early Wednesday. "When we deport you, we're serious."

The operation has caught more than 140 immigrants with convictions for sexual offenses against children; 367 known gang members, including street soldiers in the deadly Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13; and about 640 people who had already been deported once, immigration officials said. The numbers include more than 720 arrests in California alone.

More than 800 people arrested already have been deported.

OK so only 2,100 people that's it? your telling me that out of some 11-12 million illegals they could only get that many, are you kidding me! What about all of the illegals that are still sitting in our jails? Hell go to any major city and go look in the kitchens of the restaurants downtown and you will find more than 2,000 illegals!! Am I alone in this? Am I missing something? Did the bus leave and I wasn't on it or what! If this government is serious about this problem they will allow the troops to secure the border and shut it down completely, which they are more than capable of doing, please let them do it, before this invasion is complete.

Papers show 'gloomy' state of insurgency

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A blueprint for trying to start a war between the United States and
Iran was among a "huge treasure" of documents found in the hideout of terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Iraqi officials said Thursday.

The document, purporting to reflect al-Qaida policy and its cooperation with groups loyal to ousted President Saddam Hussein, also appear to show that the insurgency in Iraq was weakening.

The al-Qaida in Iraq document was translated and released by Iraqi National Security Adviser Mouwafak al-Rubaie. There was no way to independently confirm the authenticity of the information attributed to al-Qaida.

Although the office of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said the document was found in al-Zarqawi's hideout following a June 7 airstrike that killed him, U.S. military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell said the document had in fact been found in a previous raid as part of an ongoing three-week operation to track al-Zarqawi.

"We can verify that this information did come off some kind of computer asset that was at a safe location," he said. "This was prior to the al-Zarqawi safe house."
The document also said al-Zarqawi planned to try to destroy the relationship between the United States and its Shiite allies in Iraq.

While the coalition was continuing to suffer human losses, "time is now beginning to be of service to the American forces and harmful to the resistance," the document said.

The document said the insurgency was being hurt by, among other things, the U.S. military's program to train Iraqi security forces, by massive arrests and seizures of weapons, by tightening the militants' financial outlets, and by creating divisions within its ranks.

"Generally speaking and despite the gloomy present situation, we find that the best solution in order to get out of this crisis is to involve the U.S. forces in waging a war against another country or any hostile groups," the document said, as quoted by al-Maliki's office.

According to the summary, insurgents were being weakened by operations against them and by their failure to attract recruits. To give new impetus to the insurgency, they would have to change tactics, it added.

"We mean specifically attempting to escalate the tension between America and Iran, and American and the Shiite in Iraq," it quoted the documents as saying, especially among moderate followers of Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, the most influential Shiite cleric in Iraq.

"Creating disputes between America and them could hinder the U.S. cooperation with them, and subsequently weaken this kind of alliance between Shiites and the Americans," it said, adding that "the best solution is to get America involved in a war against another country and this would bring benefits."

They included "opening a new front" for the U.S. military and releasing some of the "pressure exerted on the resistance."
