Front Page: McCain Powder Not Dangerous, Iraq Withdrawal Agreed Upon, 200,000 Muslims Protest

  • McCain Powder Not Dangerous:
    Two of McCain's campaign offices received suspicious letters and white powder yesterday — the substance has been deemed not dangerous by police and fire officials. The Denver and Manchester, NH, offices reacted quickly to the letters with Denver return addresses. Florida Gov. Charlie Crist also received a letter with powder that has been deemed nontoxic.
  • Iraq WIthdrawal Agreed Upon:
    The US has agreed to remove combat troops from cities by next June and from the rest of Iraq by 2011. The schedule, which the Bush administration calls "aspirational goals" rather than deadlines, depends on the stability of Iraq. Ending combat operations in Iraq in less than a year didn't seem possible even a short time ago.

  • 200,000 Muslims Protest:
    Hundreds of thousands of Muslims gathered in Indian Kashmir's main city today in the largest protest against Indian rule in two months of conflict. Long lines and huge groups of people prayed and spoke as part of the protest sparked in June in a land dispute. One protester said, "This is a freedom movement, a people's movement. We are united to fight India until we get freedom." 68,000 have died in Kashmir conflicts since 1989.

I hate to bring up ancient history but the last time we had a presidential race the dem contender was married to the Heinz heir? I bring this up because the whole - who has more money, more property and more people to handle it - is pretty ridiculous. Kerry was drowning in ketchup. It didnt' make him less competent to be President. The fact that he didn't win had nothing to do with his money. At least I hope it didn't.

I have said it on other posts, but I don't see what the big deal is about McCain not knowing how many homes he and his wife own. I think we have all known for some time now that they keep their finances separate.

Dude, McCain probably sent it to himself in an effort to distract the press from his latest gaffe about the number of properties he owns and/or guilt-trip people into voting for him (because let's face it, the whole POW thing - which is of course, admirable - is getting stale).

Thankfully there's no Anthrax or other chemicals being sent to our leaders. This kind of harassment is both illegal and stupid. Whoever got the idea that a person can "solve" problems by killing someone is a stupid "tool" (Totally Out Of Line). Any good news from Iraq is good news. If the Iraqis can govern their own Country without turning it back over to some tyrannical dictator or turn it into a Sharia State, good for them. The Muslims living in India need to realize they are living in India and not in an Arab State. If they want to live in an Arab State, they all need to move away from India. It's just logical and reasonable that India belongs to Indian Citizens and not to Muslims. Even someone whose mentality is 8th Century should be able to comprehend that.
