US forces seized piles of top secret documents and cryptography equipment that Iraqi intelligence officials stashed away in the last days of Saddam Hussein's regime. The catch, which includes references to the country's nuclear program, is being handed over to senior intelligence analysts to see if it relates to weapons of mass destruction.(AP Photo/Jim Krane) [img]http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/ap/20030621/capt.1056220316.netherlands_iran_opposition_pdj102.jpg[/img] A girl laughs during a protest rally of various Iranian opposition groups outside the Iranian Embassy in The Hague, Netherlands, Saturday June 21, 2003.

If authentic, the video would be the first al-Qaida claim of responsibility for the suicide attacks on foreign housing compounds in Riyadh, which killed 26 people and nine attackers, and bombings in Casablanca that killed 43 people and 12 attackers.

I absolutely cannot believe that Sharpton is serious about running for president. This has NOTHING to do with him being a black man, it has to do with the fact that he knows absolutely nothing about foreign policy, economics and defense of our nation and a host of other things I wont go into. Is this for real? Is this the best the Democratic party can come up with to run against Bush in 2004? Am I dreaming? Somebody pinch me........

If you want to protest conditions in Iran, the Netherlands would be the place to do it. The badguy terrorist is wearing a mask; is he trying to be scary or is he one of those mall ninja types? Only 4.4% of the kids that live in a South American garbage dump are illiterate? That is pretty good.

That's only slightly worse than our own rate of illiteracy, which, according to the CIA World Factbook, is at 3%. [img]http://www.tcnj.edu/~cardena3/Presentation1/img002.gif[/img]

Damn straight! The beauty of (some) Middle Eastern/Persian women has long been ignored or downright hidden by veils and walls. We need to liberate these hot chicks, NOW!
