Who helps who?

If Rush Limbaugh can auction off a congressional smear letter for over $2 million to benefit the Marine Corps, surely this auction can raise a similar amount to help our citizens in greatest need. Can it not? Or have we become so myopic in our way of thinking that we support the troops at the expense of the very people they are meant to defend?

Well, I suppose we'll find out in 10 days.

Israel's Nuclear Surge

Why a surge? The Iraq Study group recently put out it's list of recommendations, included among them a phased withdraw. So why is Bush taking us in the opposite direction? Might there be another reason?

Even if Israel attacks Iran's nuclear facilities, it remains doubtful that Iran would risk an all out war. But we can be certain they'll turn up the heat in Iraq. I can already hear Bush pushing for a "final push" to backup the "surge".

Whatever happened to good old Mutually Assured Destruction?
