    Ick, gin tastes like cologne or rubbing alcohol.. I can't really make up my mind on what it does taste like.

    Now... A shot of nice Vodka... re: Ketel One, Grey Goose... or something else highend... Now, that's how to get the day started.. Unless you're heading to the range... then you dilute it with your oj. :P

    until the grandkids wake up, all I get is a shot of diet dr. pepper.....

    IMO, the USA is the epitome of arrogance if we think we can change the mindsets of cultures that have been crazy stupid for several hundred, if not thousands, of years...

    We fought the Japanese, the Koreans, the Vietnamese, and now Arabs, and still haven't learned much from the experience...

    They will soon be back killing each other over minor points in religion or the price of goat milk, or something else equally stupid....

    Don't forget trading their daughters for goats.. or to pay off lost gambling debts.

    Yeah this happened under Bush. The funny thing about that is I heard Cheney on the news this morning complaining about how this was going to give the insurgents fuel to launch more attacks and that withdrawing troops may not be the best plan. Um ok Dick, that plan was under your watch.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Are we leaving because we lost?
    Or because we won?

    We'll just have to wait and see. If Iraq stays peaceful, with no significant al-Qaeda presence, or at least nothing the Iraqi military can't handle, then we will have won.

    I dont recall that being listed as a reason we're leaving.
    And the idea that the US government doesn't have revenue, especially enough to continue operations in Iraq, is unsupportable.
