Larkin:

My guess is that the tape will be another attempt to influence the political discourse in this country in favor of the Republicans. bin Laden's message that came just 4 days before the 2004 election was clearly a transparent attempt to do just that and it worked. Kerry's momentum reversed just after that tape came out.

Al Qaeda is probably worried that the Democrats may force a withdrawal from Iraq. That will really take the wind out of their sails.

Uhh...you're probably not aware Marc but there are car fires nearly every day in Southern California. They don't always start a massive conflagration however.

This is the driest year (measured from June to June) in Southern California EVER. What's amazing is that this is mid-March and this fire is happening. The fire season normally doesn't start until late August. March is the last month of the RAINY season...

Larkin, crawl out from under your rock. When is the fire season and all outside burning banned during certain hours every day. As a firefighter I can look on the calendar but there's no use.

Bin Laden is long dead, a smear on the walls of Tora Bora.

Civil war will be the meme of the Bin Laden weekend at Bernie's funfest. They'll also discuss the failure of the surge, as our troops continue to wrap up the remaining al-Queda and Iranian cells.

Army Recruiter:

How many conservative republicans will be inspired by this message to join and help WIN?

The answer; ZERO.

Stop cheering, call 1-800-USA-ARMY.

If you are 42 and under, there is a program for you.

If you are prior service, that age limit goes up by your years of service.

If you have eligible friends and family, pass the number to them.

If the US Army Recruiting Command had to raise standards because so many were joining instead of lowering them because we are not meeting quota, that would send a powerful message to the enemies of the United States.

If Rich Lowry, who is eligible to join, went to the front of the line, that would send a powerful message.

It's irrelevant how the fires start. Sometimes they are lightning strikes, careless smokers, hunters setting fires because they're lost, kids playing with fire cars backfiring, on and on.

What's relevant is how many days in the year the conditions will be such that an ordinary brush fire can turn into a major event. This is only March and it's already happening. We will likely not see any precipitation for the next 6 months. That could make this a record for fires here in So Cal.


Yeah, when those who want to see your country destroyed endorse you or your 'plan', it's not exactly a positive endorsement.

Exactly Mike. Bin Laden's objective was clearly to give Bush a boost so he remains in office. His plan for the 9/11 attacks was to draw the US into wars in the Islamic world so he could paint America as leading in a war against Islam. That plan has worked magnificently for the bad guys. They have a new base of operations in Iraq and the jihadists are swarming into that country by the thousands from around the Middle East. The conflict has split us from our traditional allies and created a wave of anti-Americanism worldwide that is jeopardizing our security arrangements and endangering moderates in the Arab world.

George W Bush is the best thing that ever happened to Al Qaeda. They've never been stronger.

Of course you would think it is irrelevant. Plus you forgot to mention desparate criminal democrats in hopes of perpetuating their latest democrat fraud. I've lived in So. Ca. much longer than your 25 years and the fact I've seen first hand dozens of plants and trees die due to a period of extreme cold prove you are a liar and full of shit. Temp's for days in the low 40's high 30's , that's a record in my life time, AL Gore besides being a liar , is dead wrong. Nice try.

Larkin lies by omission. He demonstrates the democrat's tactics beautifully.

"This is undoutedly more evidence of what we can expect as global warming continues to get worse. I'm afraid algore was right."

This is what happens when a liar get caught telling lies. He makes up another lie.

"What's relevant is how many days in the year the conditions will be such that an ordinary brush fire can turn into a major event."

What is relevant to democrats is how many days in the year conditions will be such that democrats can get away with outright lies and smearing the opposition while offering no plan of their own and turn it into a major victory.

"The conflict has split us from our traditional allies and created a wave of anti-Americanism worldwide that is jeopardizing our security arrangements and endangering moderates in the Arab world."

Prior to "THE CONFLICT" I recall those same folks your party sends lawyers to defend jumping up and down screaming "BILL CLINTON IS THE GREAT SATAN". You seem to shamelessly forget those several attacks prior to "THE CONFLICT". And no, the conflict was a direct result of a criminal incompetant incapable and unqualified for the position he held for eight embarrassing years.

Democrats and their Media have created this latest wave of anti-Americanism worldwide since they now are a part of it and fanning the flames. With democrats in power no one fears making threats to our Country, knowing they have criminal cowards in the majority in the House and Senate.
