    The Democrats can complain about two things ( so can the rest of the country): 1) It took Iraq over 2 years to pass this law and it will be ignored not enforced and 2) that in spite of them having passed this law we will have to stay and stay and stay to provide security for worthless Arabs.

    The President's recent admission that troops cannot begin coming home shows that without US presence-Iraqis get nothing done. Having to keep 100,000 troops in Iraq 6 years after the invasion is just no right.

    Unless the Kingkitty missed it, the North Koreans for the most part cannot vote in an American election but families of Jews concentration camp victims can so BACK OFF

    Oh as for the fake note thing, the story seems to be catching on. When I first saw the story, it was on two odd news sites, now there are several more carrying it. What I do not understand of the whole thing is, if North Korea can make bogus cigs, clothes and other goodies for quick money, why not fake notes too?

    Perhaps the defectors lied. The thing is, I cannot help but to think it does mean Pyongyang is not doing it. After all, Kim does need some more cognac.

    Oops, fixed the sentence.
