Digg Report: Today's #1 Digg, at a light 2848, points to a picture that, quite frankly, I don't get. And, I have no time to try to decipher it.

So, good luck.

Iranian Cells Destroyed - in Iraq

Going after the Iranian-backed cells in Iraq is all find and dandy, but it would be a bit like killing German spies in America in the 1940's but refusing to take the fight to Germany itself. One can only imagine the outcome, and I'm afraid we're going to see a fine example of it sometime soon.

Unless, of course, we act against Iran. But that's likely a pipe dream.

Mainstream Media Again Assists Radical Islam

There are two important aspects to this story. First, the mainstream media is very quick to report the worst about Iraq; too quick, in my opinion. Almost eager.

Second, as has been said before on this blog, the "insurgency" is not about Iraq, it's about driving America from Iraq and creating a victory for radical Islam against the Great Satan. Fomenting sectarian violence, as was to be the result from this false reporting, is just one of the tactics being used to push American politics against finishing what we started in Iraq.

A World with Saddam Hussein?

Some interesting thoughts on what the world would be like if we hadn't gone to war to remove Saddam Hussein from power. I agree with a lot of this, but I still think we've prosecuted the war itself, and its aftermath, in horrible fashion.

Al Qaeda - Losing?

Al Qaeda has apparently been affected. That's a very, very good thing. Imagine how much more less effective they'd be if we removed their state sponsors?

Dell to Help Russia Against the West

So, Dell's building Russia a supercomputer to help Russia develop its oil resources--which Putin has made clear Russia will use as leverage against the West.

Thanks, Dell.

Oliver Stone - Ahmadinejad Movie?

Celebrity Report: I'm not sure if this is real or a hoax, but reportedly Oliver Stone is thinking of making a movie on Iran's Imajihadi (or whatever his name is). Knowing Stone, this could be for real, but usually he does movies after the facts are too cold or impossible to ascertain to be laid open to the light of day. And, the story's not yet actually played out on the Iranian warmonger, and so it's strange to make a movie at this point.

I call hoax, but we'll see.

Iran's Response to Appeasement Offer

And here's how Iran responds when they're appeased. As expected.

Jimmy Carter - Israel/Palestine Is Apartheid. Really!

In spite of being ridiculed and debunked by most reasonable people, Jimmy Carter holds to his theory that the Israeli/Palestinian situation is the same sort of apartheid as occured for decades in South Africa.

The man just needs to step on out of politics, I think, and go grow some peanuts.
