Terror Chic

Terror Chic

Sajida Mubarak al-Rishawi displays the latest terror fashion-gear after her aborted mission in Amman, Jordan. Media were glued to her matter-of-fact, no nonsense style.

Blood Spills Over the Border into Jordan

Blood Spills Over the Border

Is there no end to the violence that rages in the Middle East? What has happened to the utopian words of George W. Bush, delivered at his 2005 Inauguration address just 10 months ago:

By our efforts, we have lit a fire as well - a fire in the minds of men. It warms those who feel its power, it burns those who fight its progress, and one day this untamed fire of freedom will reach the darkest corners of our world.

A fire burns in the minds of men... and that fire is not freedom, but fear and violence.

It's Only Soldiers Burning

It's Only Soldiers Burning

The War rages on... a soldier in flames... could there be no end to the madness? When British forces attack Iraqi soldiers, while under siege from Sunni insurgents, who are battling Shite militants, while under occupation of the Americans?

It's every man for himself in this land of the forgotten, where soldiers burn and no political rational can possibly justify the human destruction that has reached the ultimate depths of Hell.

Everyday Life in Hell

Everyday Life in Hell

In the Everday Life of the American soldier in Iraq, a protracted life of hell in the scorching desert heat, we read about Mudville Gazette, the on-line voice of an American warrior and his wife who stands by him, and Sgt. Lizzie in "Life in this Girl's Army":

This is just my assessment of my every day life. I swing up, I swing down, my moods vary and with them what I want to write about. I tend to ramble alot, so if I don't make sense I am sorry:) Don't get scared now.

To quote Celine, this is truly "death on the installment plan..."
