I really loved Top Secret, but this guy has lost it. I'm sure he'll always have a voice here though, as well as any message from al Qaeda.

bryanD:

Is this the same David Zucker of "Airplane" fame? How long ago did he blow his funny fuse? Oh, right! How can I forget "Airplane 2" (blechhh!)! And as for KJL and the Mini-con Cajews at NRO...comfortable videos, Jr. Goldgerg's desktop game links, and LOTS of pretending they're "journalists" makes for an unintentionally funny site. And the flat-ass "message" video above is proof. LOL

Hilarious!

The death toll of the next World War will be far greater than WWII. The percentage of civilians killed will also be far greater. When will the next Churchill, Reagan, or Thatcher step forward?

Any volunteers??

civil behavior:

You people are ridiculous.

Today we have the Joint Chiefs saying that a surge in Iraq would likely not solve the problems of the civil war. In fact, they think it might provoke more violence from Al Queda.


And of course the response from the right wing blogggers is that the idea of diplomacy and using soft power to try and bring resolution to this fiasco of Bush's is a joke. To you, it's just a comma. Let's keep staying the course and sooner or later we'll be able to kill enough people to make a difference.

What's wrong with you? How do you manage to sleep at night knowing full well your nation has invaded a sovereign country, destroyed its infrastructure, is building a minor constellation in its sand and calling it an "embassy" and you think that continued use of force is what is going to bring them to love us?

Are you daft?

Iraq is still a sovereign nation. It is just no longer led by an evil dictator. Are you saying that you should never invade a sovereing nation no matter how great a threat that nation is to your own sovereign nation? Yeah that makes a lot of sense.

And as far a destroying it's infrastructure goes, I think your terrorist allies have done considerably more of that than the allied troops.

Zucker's film is right on the money.

Let's not forget these fine examples of the success of diplomacy with radical Islamists:
2000 USS Cole
1999 East Timor
1998 Nairobi
1996 Khobar Towers
1995 The Bojinka Operation
1993 World Trade Center
1985 Achille Lauro hijacking, during which Abu Abbas murdered wheelchair-bound Leon Klinghoffer - before taking refuge in Iraq
1983 Bombing of American troops, in their barracks, in Beirut
1979 Taking of American hostages in Iran, held for 444 days
1972 Munich Massacre

Well someone is CB.

A sovereign" nation that violated evey section of the 1991 ceasefire agreement and left itself open for a reassumption of hostilities.

Perhaps you can explain how a country with a destroyed infrastructure can come close to this economic performance? (The quote comes from next weeks edition of Newsweek magazine)

Civil war or not, Iraq has an economy, and--mother of all surprises--it's doing remarkably well. Real estate is booming. Construction, retail and wholesale trade sectors are healthy, too, according to a report by Global Insight in London. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce reports 34,000 registered companies in Iraq, up from 8,000 three years ago. Sales of secondhand cars, televisions and mobile phones have all risen sharply. Estimates vary, but one from Global Insight puts GDP growth at 17 percent last year and projects 13 percent for 2006. The World Bank has it lower: at 4 percent this year. But, given all the attention paid to deteriorating security, the startling fact is that Iraq is growing at all.

How? Iraq is a crippled nation growing on the financial equivalent of steroids, with money pouring in from abroad. National oil revenues and foreign grants look set to total $41 billion this year, according to the IMF. With security improving in one key spot--the southern oilfields--that figure could go up.As someone once coined the phrase... read the rest including the Iraqi cell phoine company that stands to reap revenues $520 million. The U.S. State Department reports that there are now 7.1 million mobile-phone subscribers in Iraq, up from just 1.4 million two years ago.

Point of information for bryanD: The creative team behind "Airplane!", including David Zucker, were not involved in "Airplane II".

To others, even assuming for a moment that there is no military solution in Iraq, that doesn't mean that diplomacy with the likes of Ahmedinajad must be the answer. That's a false choice.

No one has said there's no military solution in Iraq. Just that Bush has proven himself incapable of finding it. You based your comment on a false premise.

Andres:

While right-wing bloggers waste their time proposing non-existent new troops to Iraq, Somalia is becoming a training ground for Al Qaeda and Kim Jong Il and Ahmadenijad feel more powerful than ever. They now have leverage against us.

And to the guy who cited the U.S.S. Cole attack and others. Can I ask you how many of those attacks were carried out by Iraq or from Iraq?

And no, Al Qaeda was not in Iraq before we invaded. They have gone in there AFTER we invaded.

Iraq is being governed by nobody, period.
Or did you miss the Stephen Hadley memo in which he basically said Al-Maliki is against us?

Also, you might want to ask the Iraqi Kurds how things are hanging (or the people of Basra, or Furik, or etc., etc, etc..

JD:

Andres- those who are mentioning other terrorist incidents, like USS Cole or Khobar or the Embassy Bombings, are using those as a demonstration that negotiation - ANY negotiation - with Muslim terrorists is futile, and will inexorably lead to more violence, more killing, more death. There has yet to be a nation in that region, save for Israel, that has completely lived up to its negotiated treaty obligations in full. Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Iran, Iraq, and even Kuwait have all negotiated some manner of agreement in "good faith" and then turned around and has gone back on the agreement in some manner when it suited their purpose.

That's not because they are all collectively dishonest, it is because they consider diplomacy a finer-dressed variation of hudna.

In short, it's a Muslim thang that you probably wouldn't (or in your case, Andres, WON'T) understand.
