#1 I wish we could turn that whole Waziristan region into a nuclear wasteland. There's not one thing in there that's worth pissing on.

#3 Lol, Fred - these RNS items are terrific... Thinking about making them a separate offering in some fashion?

I don't have any solid ideas at the moment, and there are many people 'round here smarter than me about such things, but there's definitely a certain magic there (LOL) which might become a "sister" service to RB The Interactive Newspaper...

Of course it would mean you'd have to stop working and starve, lol...

Mebbe the marriage of your experience / knowledge / writing could become a commercial product with the right touches, direction, and mechanism.

I hesitate to say it, but something like a new Onion thingy, but with the WoT focus...

#4 Fred, thanks for the real scoop. As for the original article, I wasn't able to get past the quotes marks around the US “war on terror”B>

#5 agree with .com. But alas, I don't have meaningful suggestions other than "Go Fred!"

This is the best site on the web for a comprehensive view on the WOT. Too bad you don't bash Bush. Then you could find someone to underwrite the magic. But then, it would just be crap like all of the other crap out there. Catch-22.

#6 Hmmm... We could kidnap one of them, 2b, hold him incommunicado, beat his PIN number out of him, and, um well, er, nevermind, heh. Jus' funnin'...

#7 Mushy plays with the clerics through his Pakistan Muslim League (Qaid-i-Azam) connections. The Daily Times publication, along with the Pakistan Peoples Party and the Sindh based, MQM, are the last vestiges of secularism in Pakistan. If President Bush would deride the Pakistan's bearded parasite class for the Arab-Wannabes that they are, then Secular nationalists would sweep aside two faced swine like Mushy.

If a corrupt dictatorship ordered you, or your children, to learn a worthless language like Arabic, wouldn't that engage your national pride against that vulgar cultural servitude?

#8 Listen To Dogs I'm shocked! Shocked! Don't you know that Pakistan, along with Saudi Arabia and Jordan, are key allies in WOT?

#10 Guys, are y'all ready to give up control of Afghanistan or Iraq in order to piss off Pakistan or the Gulf Emirates to no real good effect?

#11 unemployed potentate Mulla Omar

Fred, on a good day the combined skills of a dozen Hollyweird hacks might be able to come up with something that funny. Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!

#14 Considering he is handicapped, Yale might appoint him as college prez?

#16 Peshawar would be a great place to experiment with Nanotech. If you screwed up and made grey ooze... what's the downside?
