ABC: "President Bush's speech may be scheduled for tonight, but the troop surge in Iraq is already under way."

NYTimes: "The new Democratic leaders of Congress on Wednesday accused President Bush of ignoring strong American sentiment against the war in Iraq and said they would build a bipartisan campaign against his proposed military expansion."

Borowitz (this man is hilarious!): "Moments after President George W. Bush appeared on national television to announce a surge of additional troops into Baghdad, a leader of the Iraqi insurgents appeared on the Arabic-language Al-Jazeera network to announce an 'insurge' of additional insurgents into the Iraqi capital."

AlterNet: "What is striking about the current debate in Washington - whether to 'surge' troops to Iraq and increase the size of the U.S. Army - is that roughly 100,000 bodies are missing from the equation: The number of American forces in Iraq is not 140,000, but more like 240,000.
What makes up the difference is the huge army of mercenaries - known these days as 'private contractors'. After the U.S. Army itself, they are easily the second-largest military force in the country."


Scotsman: "A US state will consider cutting the word 'idiot' from its constitution so people with some mental disabilities can still vote."
An idiot is president of the United States, idiots have voted for Bush, so now it's time to recognize the debt America owes to its idiots. Mind you, a mentally challenged person is not per se an idiot.

DemocracyNow: "On Monday, 24 year-old Pakistani immigrant Shahawar Matin Siraj was sentenced to 30 years in prison for plotting to bomb the Herald Square subway station in New York City. Attorneys for Siraj said he was set up by a police informant and that the informant was the one who pushed the bombing. Siraj had no explosives, no timetable for an attack and little understanding about explosives."

Independent: "Europe, the richest and most fertile continent and the model for the modern world, will be devastated by climate change, the European Union predicts today.
The ecosystems that have underpinned all European societies from Ancient Greece and Rome to present-day Britain and France, and which helped European civilisation gain global pre-eminence, will be disabled by remorselessly rising temperatures, EU scientists forecast in a remarkable report which is as ominous as it is detailed."

Mark Fiore on global warming.

EUObserver: "The European Commission has called on the 27 EU member states to reduce by 2020 the bloc's greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20 percent compared to what they were 17 years ago. The unilateral proposal aims to set an example to the rest of the world in the fight against climate change."

While I am writing this here in Amsterdam we are having the third gale in a few weeks time. No snow so far.
