As proof that they're good, notice that the Republican copycat ones not only don't work the same way, they actually reinforce the originals.
What about concentrating on a few absolutely crucial, inarguable, "slam dunk" points instead of a core dump?
How exactly would Haditha play against the Democrats? You'd think the Republicans would prefer not to talk about that.
"Opium production in Afghanistan has increased by 34 percent over the past year, and the country is now the source of 93 percent of the heroin, morphine and other opiates on the world market, according to a report by the United Nations' anti-drug agency.
'Afghanistan's opium production has thus reached a frighteningly new level, twice the amount produced just two years ago,' says the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime's annual opium survey, released Monday [August 27, 2007] in Kabul.
'Leaving aside 19th-century China . . ., no country in the world has ever produced narcotics on such a deadly scale,' the report notes.
...The surge in opium production has frustrated U.S. and NATO military commanders, who believe that the trade plays a major role in funding a Taliban insurgency that has become increasingly deadly over the past two years. Commanders also believe that the involvement of public officials in the drug trade has undermined Afghans' confidence in their government.
...Seven years ago, the Taliban leader Mohammad Omar banned the cultivation of opium poppies -- but not their export -- on the grounds that growing them violated the principles of Islam. But the report says that Taliban leaders have reversed their position and are now using drug profits to buy weapons and logistical equipment and to pay the salaries of their militia."
I thought the point of that was the single Che sticker above the mess of anti-Bush stickers?
It may simultaneously be a simpler message attempting to link anti-Bush sentiment with Marxism and Communism.
World Trade Center, Bali, Madrid, London.
For the Afghans and particularly the minority ethnicities and the city dwellers the situation is much better than it was in August 01.
Not perfect, but good enough. Like whatever democrat gets the nomination, amirite?!
Could you remind me, again, what came out of the Whitewater thing, in the way of proven wrong-doing by the Clintons?
