Timely Reminder

Russia, which claimed to be in negotiations with islamic terrorists who had kidnapped 4 of their diplomatic workers, is reeling in shock and horror at the murder and beheading of all four hostages. Coverage at Powerline, Gateway Pundit and Michelle Malkin. WARNING: Disturbing video at the links.

Why Russia (which didn't support the Iraqi War) figures that they can negotiate with people who want them dead is beyond us. Russia has it's own islamic problems in Chechnya and has been none too gentle in addressing them. Their support of Saddam and the Iranian nuclear efforts are even more mind boggling.

The old Chinese adage "May you live in interesting times" is certainly apt here.

Well it's interesting Russia didn't support the war because 80% of the Iraqi war machine was manufactured by the russians. The other 20% was by the french and us.

What is mind-boggling is why Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, and host of former Reagan era ultra-nationalists (many of whom are in the Bush II administration) aren't in the dock with Saddam. After all these were the very same zealots who were instrumental in supporting the tyrant during the height of his power and while committing his worst crimes.

For example, the US provided both military and economic support for Saddam during his invasion of Iran which would lead to over one million deaths. The infamous poison gas attack on the Kurds in 1988 in no way stopped the continued shipment of US funds and military support of Saddam.

Why did it take until Aug. 1990 for Saddam to become an offical enemy? He had already committed far worst crimes before then within his own nation and the region--all with the unwavering support of Reagan adminstration vets currently serving under Bush.

Maybe business as usual. Not saying much but how can one really respond. Disgust with various conduct and dealing's across the spectrum. I'm often perplexed.

My just called me with information regarding the CPD Sgt. test.:
I.A.D. has been informed at 2100 hrs tonight that one of twelve boxes of CPD Sgt. tests sent via an overnight service has been "misplaced". If this lost parcel is not recovered the whole 2nd portion of the Sgt. test will become void and null. The last checkpoint this parcel was scanned was O'Hare Airport sorting.

If in fact the City has to void this test, I see some very pissed off coppers.

Maybe the parcel decided to get "lost" after all this news coverage on corruption. You think?
