Pan Am Flight 103
I am surprised that Scotland released
this piece of shit Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi
I do not give a shit he is supposedly terminal.
I was born and raised in the Southern U.S., not that that matters. I would've water-boarded him until I got all the information I could get, then put two in the back of the head of that monster.. I would consider "the two" to be compassion. Anyone who murders 259 people should be put to death...just the way I feel.
I have not calmed down and moved on, nor am I a radical, but the world needs to understand that extreme Islamic Fascism takes no prisoners. All or none, so to say. We need to adjust our game and play by their rules.
My take on the the politics of Scotland. Why would they do this? Is it about money...financial deals in the future? There is some speculation. Politics and money lead down a rough and rocky road.
I can't believe they let him go. He got "Life", and life is life...or should be. He got a Hero's welcome when his plane touched down in Libya.
Makes me sick...
Janet Napolitano who just recently told us that horrendous, unspeakable acts committed by actual terrorists, dead set on destroying our country and killing Americans, should be called "man-caused disasters."
She told Der Spiegel:
"In my speech, although I did not use the word 'terrorism,' I referred to 'man-caused' disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur."
"only a nuance"...what? She is a man-caused disaster because her father put the glide on her mother.
Our Supreme Leader Bobo sure knows how to put a team together, ya think? This is a fucking circus.
"When we get people who are more concerned about reading the rights to an Al Qaeda terrorist than they are with protecting the United States against people who are absolutely committed to do anything they can to kill Americans, then I worry," Cheney said.
Protecting the country's security is "a tough, mean, dirty, nasty business," he said. "These are evil people. And we're not going to win this fight by turning the other cheek."
I say Bobobama has a full plate...I sincerely hope he doesn't fuck up...I really do.
Sad thing is: I don't believe he's the man for the job. I don't believe so at all.
I'm just sayin"
"...The only way Israel can regain its deterrence in the region after this recent debacle is to make it clear to all that, from this day forward, we will play by whatever rules our enemies are willing to honor.
No Rules = No Restraint...."
Treppenwitz pretty much nailed it.
I have always said that you must adapt to the rules of your enemy if you want to win. Learned that from a Korean Moo Duk Kwan master. He was, and is, right.
All of us live in troubled times.

If I ever get my hands on a comment spammer I will...*$%^#@( (#)) ^!@ ($@)_+$@*$^%
I swear to the Maker...I will **** them up. I swear on everything I hold dear.
Anyone have any idea how we could catch one? I'm serious. I want some of this scum.
I will travel anywhere on the planet. Money is not an issue. I want one. Bad.
I want to make an example out of one of 'em, and film it, and post it.
This makes me crazier than I know I am.
I believe comment spammers should die an excruciatingly painful and unhurried death.
I really do.
Bottom Line: I will finance the posse.
How Stupid Are We ?
I'd say Mahmoud is a bad guy.

...Maawad, who is in the United States illegally, told the judge during a hearing Thursday that he is studying science and economics at the University of Memphis...
..."My school is everything. I stay in this country for seven years; I stay for the school," he said.
Thank The Irish Republican Army
…because if it wasn’t for them, the gutsy British would have never installed such a sophisticated surveillance system…and would have never caught the Islamofascist rat shit that tried to do ‘em again last week.
I hope they use whatever means necessary to make those scummies talk…and then, of course, kill ‘em with a nail bomb.
God Bless England
It won’t be long before the Left says, and the MSM will support, the Terror attacks in London this morning were the fault of the United States. The indiscriminate slaughter of innocent men, women, and children by Islamofascist Radical Extremist pieces of shit will somehow be rationalized as a necessary action by the Muslims oppressed by the Bush administration and the Coalition.
I hope this strengthens British resolve to get deeper into the game. The only thing at stake is Freedom, our values and way of life, and the future of mankind, as we know it. That might seem like a strong statement, but it is true. The world is flat; we live and thrive in a global economy, and any disruption in progress will be devastating to all of us.
Our enemy is not a country; it is primarily the Wahabi sect of Islam. Wahhabism knows no borders, and that is the problem. How do we retaliate? These radical extremists know we can’t cross borders, and they also know how to run, hide, and stay safe. You can bet that Saudi Arabia, among other Islamic Nation States, is into this all the way. They’re dancing in the streets. Scum.
We need new policies. We need to ignore borders. We need to pursue these people wherever we think they are. As long as the terrorists know they have sanctuary in, for example, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, North Africa, Indonesia, etc…we can’t win…and we must win. We’re going to have to kill a bunch of people. There is no other way to survive. This indiscriminate slaughter will not stop until we take the gloves off. Think about what will happen if Iran goes nuclear. Just think about that.
After 9/11 I was emotional; I was in shock, and I cried. Today, I’m pissed.
Sometimes, you must do what you have to do. At this time, we must do what needs to be done, because the alternative is unacceptable. WE MUST WIN! And for all you people who say this war cannot be won; just slit your candy-ass throat, and give Allah and some virgins a big hug from me.
Remember, these Pigs don’t negotiate. Why should we? Everything has changed, and as I’ve said many times before, we must adapt. We must play by their rules. We could do it, if it wasn’t for leftist public opinion. We need to start killing ‘em, wherever they can be found, and while we’re at it, we need to secure the nuclear bombs in North Korea, Pakistan and Russia, by whatever means necessary. We need to just do it. Fuck world opinion, and fuck China. What are they going to do? They will be better off without these “problems”, and they know it. The future of China is dependent on the “global economy”, and Islamofascist terrorists, Kim Jung Il, and the Taiwanese, are the least of their problems. Bottom line: They know this.
Also, I’m sick of the media calling a terrorist an insurgent.
I hear this piece of shit is wounded.
We are striving urgently and racing against time to create companies of mujahidin that will repair to secure places and strive to reconnoiter the country, hunting the enemy –- Americans, police, and soldiers -- on the roads and lanes. We are continuing to train and multiply them. As for the Shi`a, we will hurt them, God willing, through martyrdom operations and car bombs.
I hope he dies a slow and excruciatingly painful death.
A Wad Of US Dollars...
...to secure his silence.
The doctor refused to take the cash.
Maybe, just maybe, we'll get lucky, and this scumbag will die.
I know...I know...most people believe that if we get the commanders, there's a line of others waiting to take their place. This is true, but the others waiting don't have the ability to carry on with the same intensity. They don't have the connections, intelligence, or support to maintain the level of chaos that is crucial to their success. The money will begin to dry up, among other things.
We just have to keep on keeping on. Kill as many as we can, and never forget.
Anyone who believes this War can have a negotiated ending...is foolish.
More good news.
The Bottom Line
Some say North Korea already has the capability to deliver a Nuclear Ballistic Missile to American soil. If they don't now, they soon will. If Iran is allowed to develop a nuclear weapon, they will use it.
In the end, only regime change in Iran and North Korea is likely to diminish the threat posed by these nations' governments. We had better be doing everything possible to encourage such an outcome.
It won’t be long before there is some preventative maintenance in Iran. I don’t know what the solution is, but I do know, IslamoFascist Iran cannot be allowed to develop a nuclear bomb. Negotiations between the UN and EU are just allowing Iran to buy more time. Fortunately, for all of us, Israel and the US understand this. Unfortunately, so do the Iranians.
Time is running out.
Anyone who believes the following statement is naïve.
Iran's Intelligence Minister Ali Yunesi on Wednesday again denied that his country's civilian nuclear facilities were a cover for an atomic weapons program, saying U.S. satellites were spying on Iran but would find nothing as "we have nothing to hide."
"…we have nothing to hide…"?
Does anyone really believe that?
Iran is sitting atop enough oil to power the region until many generations have come and gone.
We’re at a crucial moment my friends, and it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Whatever happens, it won’t be good, but if Iran gets the bomb, it‘ll be worse. It will be a lose-lose situation. Hell, we might already be in lose-lose mode.
I am not a warmonger, but our options are limited.
I’m just saying….
How do you think this should be handled?
A Nuclear Iran ?
If you believe this, you are crazy.
Fact: Iran will not be allowed to go nuclear. It just won't happen.
Ask the Israelis.
Anyone who believes that Israel will allow the IslamoFascist terrorist pigs in Iran to develop a nuclear weapon is just plain nuts.
The question is not when, but how soon, Iran will be attacked. I think it will be sooner than later. After all, Israel has some experience in matters like this.
Forget about the United Nations, the Democrats, the French, and everyone else who will "negotiate" until the unthinkable has happened. Forget about them. In the long run, they don't matter. We do. Our children do. Freedom does. The preservation of our way of life does. Progress and education do matter...intelligent human beings do not regress.
The U.S. will play a significant part. Mark my words.
We must support this model, because if we don't, we're all toast.
The Jews understand this. I understand this. Do you?
Some people say, "the U.S. has 'em (nukes), who are they to tell others they can't have 'em?" Well, I'll tell you. The U.S. has no intention of exterminating a race (the Jews), and all other Christians after them. The U.S. has no intention of moving mankind backwards
I am an American, and I was raised with options. It was my choice, and I chose these values...they were not forced upon me.
The IslamoFascist Goatfuckers will not win.
I'll bet anyone, that Iran does not obtain a nuclear weapon. Any takers?
Anyway, enough of this bullshit...I'm going to go do a shot and curl up with my puppy and read a book.
We've Got To See It Through
US troops will be boosted significantly in Iraq. We’ve got to do what we have to do, and since we’ve got ‘em on the run, we can’t stop now.
I was having a
meaningful discussion argument with a lefter today, and he was all bent out of shape about how the U.S. must leave Iraq ASAP. He pretty much insinuated that if the U.S. didn’t, the end of the world was close. When I reminded him that 90 + % of the troops don’t want to leave, and that they say if we don’t finish what the IslamoFascists started, we’ll be back in ten years; he STFU. No comeback.
For future reference: If you
prove to tell a lefter, that 90% of the people they want to make decisions for, disagree with them, they melt.
I love it when that happens.
Wake Up Call In Tulip Land
And I'm not talking about organs.
As I've said many times before, radical Islam knows no borders.
..."We are a Dutch democratic society. We have our own norms and values," right-wing lawmaker Geert Wilders told The Associated Press in an interview. "If you chose radical Islam you can leave, and if you don't leave voluntarily then we will send you away. This is the only message possible."...
..."If in a mosque there is recruitment for jihad, it's not a house of prayer, it's a house of war. If it's not a house of prayer, it should be closed down," he said...
I disagree, the mosque should be blown up, and everyone left alive should get the ole "two tap" to the head. Eventually, they will get the message.
Does that sound harsh? I don't care. These IslamoFascist terrorist pigs don't care, so, we must show these rabid scumbags the door.
The bottom line is this: This problem will not go away until we play by their rules. Since they have no rules, we can't either. To hell with the press, and to hell with public opinion...we must do whatever is necessary to win.
WHATEVER IS NECESSARY.
WHATEVER IT TAKES.
WHATEVER THE COST.
All said and done...we have a choice. Do we sacrifice the future of our children, or do we guarantee it?
To me, that's not a tough call.
40 Vials Of Sarin Gas
Neal Boortz reports that "our Marines appear to have found 40 vials of Sarin gas in Fallujah. How many people could 40 vials of Sarin gas kill? There's your weapons of mass destruction. Let's see how many of our esteemed news outlets cover this story."
Check "2" of "20".
Iran Is A Problem
Reports are coming across the wires that Iran has agreed to suspend their uranium enrichment program.
BULLSHIT! They are trying to buy time.
Iran insists its nuclear ambitions are limited to generating electricity from atomic power plants, not making bombs.
If anyone believes this, they are crazy, and should support the United Nations. Iran is sitting on enough oil to run the country until the end of time. Iran is committed to first, the destruction of Israel, and second, America.
I believe Iran's time is short, with regards to its nuclear program.
Israel, and the U.S., cannot, and will not allow Iran to go nuclear. It's just not going to happen. The IslamoFascist terrorist pigs in Iran know this, and they are worried.
George Bush is still in the saddle, and this presents a huge problem for the radical mullahs. Their man Kerry would've put the ball back in the court of the U.N., thus allowing them to complete the project. It isn’t going to happen now.
I'm not a "warmonger", but I believe, sometimes, you have make tough decisions that will affect the future of
mankind our children. This is one of those decisions. It should be done sooner, rather than later.
I am 100% for a preemptive strike to eliminate the threat.
Good News At Last
Chief Terrorist Yasser Arafat is now burning in hell.
Personally, I believe he died last Friday, and it took his cronies a week to formulate a plan to keep his rabid pig followers in line.
Among other things, they want to avoid a situation similar to what happened when the Ayatollah Khomeini died, and his coffin was paraded through the streets. Do you remember that? The savages worked themselves into such frenzy, they jostled his coffin, and his corpse slid out into the street. In the confusion that followed, his loyal followers trampled it.
It makes me sick when I hear him referred to as a statesman. He was a piece of shit terrorist pig, and that is all.
I wonder if they'll ever find all the money he stole from his people?
A Level Message
Fallujah is isolated and surrounded. We've already told women and children, and anyone else who doesn't want to get killed, to leave. It is sealed off per request from the Iraqi government. Why should our troops go in and risk casualties fighting door to door?
I say we take to the air, and flatten the damn place, and kill everyone whose chose to stay. We need to show 'em the rules have changed. After all, they've been warned, and we have to assume everyone remaining inside is an IslamoFascist Terrorist pig.
They would do it in a heartbeat, if given the opportunity.
We will never make any progress in this war on terror (which we didn't start), unless we show them we can play by their rules. To hell with world opinion, lets do what is necessary to win.
I say we use conventional weapons, and make Fallujah go away. I would also make it known, that a Mosque is no longer a place to hide or store weapons.
We need to send a message to these
Same Coin – Two Sides
What does bin Laden really hope to accomplish by releasing this last tape?
Does he hope to sway the election for Kerry, which will no doubt make it easier for these IslamoFascist scum to carry out attacks against Americans? He knows that if Kerry is elected, the U.S. will jump into bed with the E.U., and the E.U. will eventually cut deals with Radical Islam.
Does he hope to sway the election for Bush, who he views as the greatest Satan of all? To maintain the level of extreme hate, which feeds and supports his despicable mob, and for recruiting purposes, he needs a Bush win. He can’t afford any “softening up” on America.
I really don’t know, but I do know, in my opinion; if Kerry is elected, America will be less secure. Also, Kerry will pull out of Iraq, and that will be a “win” for radical Islam.
This is not really related, but it is an interesting read.
Is Bin Laden Dead?
I think so. I've believed that since Tora Bora. That piece of shit could not stay away from the camera for this long.
So does this guy. He makes his case and illustrates the character of George Bush while doing so. There just might be some things more important than being reelected. Anyway, it’s an interesting read.

Terrorism and Guerrilla Warfare
There is a great analysis of terrorism and guerrilla warfare at the USS Clueless.
(Captain's log): There may be few words today which are more politically important, more widely used, and less understood than the word terrorism. Even trying to come up with a dictionary-style definition for the term is not easy. Having every radical out there suddenly decide that their mortal enemies are "terrorists", in some way or other, doesn't help any. Nor is the situation clarified by supporters of terrorist groups who deny that they are terrorists...

I agree with King Geoffrey's initiative.

Never Underestimate This Scum
WASHINGTON (AP) - Jose Padilla, a former Chicago gang member held as a terrorism suspect for two years, sought to blow up hotels and apartment buildings in the United States in addition to planning an attack with a "dirty bomb" radiological device, the government said Tuesday.
The plot thickens: It was later determined that he (they) wanted to “do” high rise apartment buildings by renting a couple of apartments in each; sealing ‘em off, filling ‘em up with natural gas, and detonating ‘em with a explosive device after 24 hours. Man, that is a lot of gas, and would be easy to do with a little training, and some planning. Just mask, or block, the smell.
Anyway, we’ve got to start thinking “outside the box”
We should never underestimate this scum.
Tell It Like It Is
Ann Coulter tells it like it is.
...We have liberated the Iraqi people from a brutal dictator who gassed his own people, had weapons of mass destruction, invaded his neighbors, harbored terrorists, funded terrorists and had reached out to Osama bin Laden. Liberals may see Saddam's mass graves in Iraq as half-full, but I prefer to see them as half-empty...
This is a must read.
Chicken Shit Cowards
Most of the Palestinian armed terrorists based in Gaza Strip’s Rafah fled north to Khan Younes during the May 22-23 weekend pause in the large-scale Israeli operation launched seven days ago. Some even dropped their weapons in their haste to get out...
Read about Operation Rainbow here.
I understand that militant Palestinian groups are holding hostage the remains of six Israel Defense Forces soldiers killed in Gaza City on Tuesday. Their demands are: Israel will have to immediately withdraw from the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza City.
WTF - how sick is that?
I say: Arafat (and every coward hiding in his compound) should be dead by dawn, and the neighborhood of Zeitoun leveled. Any who resist, will be with Allah. Good riddance.
Looks like we blew up a bunch of shit in Fallujah today. Although the media is not certain what it was, I’m certain that whatever it was, is now gone.
We also took out some trash in Najaf.
Good job Marines!
These IslamoFascists must have forgotten about the Spectre. I guess we’ll have to teach ‘em not to miss deadlines.
Doors to Hell
"It was Bush."
"Bush has Rantissi's blood on his hands,"
"All doors to hell should be opened against the Israelis and against the Americans,"
"Bush freed the hands of Sharon to do whatever he liked with the Palestinian people, to kill their leaders and to confiscate their land,"
"Sharon and Bush will see more blood coming from their noses in Palestine and Iraq,"
"The United States bears the responsibility for what happens, since after every visit by Sharon to Washington he commits more terrorism and assassinations."
Do you believe these people? Crazy!!

Al Qaeda Economic Targets Outlined in Depth
by Laura Mansfield
Late Saturday night, a posting appeared on an Islamic Jihadi forum in
Arabic outlining the economic targets that may be in Al Qaeda's crosshairs.
The posting was titled "Will Al-Qaeda threaten to crash the Boeing
airplanes?!! A futuristic view of the economic war" and appears to outline
one of the paths that might be taken by Al Qaeda in its war with America.
(The Arabic is located here.)
The posting begins by outlining the four axes in the war against the United
States: Economic, Military, Media, and Political. It cites the economic
axis as the most important of the four.
It specifies several different sectors of the American economy as most
vulnerable: airplane manufacturing, automobile manufacturing, and energy.
The posting explicitly states that by focusing on these sectors of the
economy, Al Qaeda can inflict serious damage to the US economy by weakening
the dollar, causing flight of investments, and raising unemployment.
It justifies these sectors as targets because of their support for the
American political system, specifically what they call the "black house".
It also points out that these huge companies are the backbone of the
American economy and that a serious blow to them would take considerable
time and effort to repair.
The posting also points out that should any one of these manufacturing
giants fail that the impact on the stock market would be significant in
terms of undermining investor confidence, increasing unemployment, and
removing tens of thousands of jobs from the US economy.
The author of the posting claims significant victories in the media axis of
the war, specifically referring to the blackouts in the United States, when
Abu Hafs al Masri Brigade claimed responsibility for the electrical
outages. He cites military victories in the attacks on the British Consul
in Turkey. And he uses the Madrid bombings and the resultant overthrow of
the government to illustrate a political victory.
He goes on to ask how a victory on the economic axis might be attained in
the coming days.
The scenario he proposes is chilling. He suggests the following:
1. Focus on American companies worldwide as targets
2. Attacks on American oil refineries
3. Attacks on the American civilian airports, causing a destruction of the
airlines which have already been damaged in the September 11 attacks.
4. Boycott of American products
5. Creation of forest fires, in an attempt to deprive the American market
of raw materials for the wood, paper, and byproducts industries
6. Attacks on the transit systems as happened in Spain
The article goes on to outline a more specific plan of attack against
Boeing. It explains that the airplane industry is dominated by two
companies, who are in intense competition with each other: Boeing from the
US and Airbus from Europe.
According to the author, Boeing has already sustained significant damage as
a result of the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington, especially
after the decline in travel in tourism that resulted from the attacks. In
addition, Boeing has lost a Pentagon contract worth billions of US
dollars. It has laid of hundred of workers in an attempt to stabilize the
The author goes on to state that Boeing is optimistic about the future,
with regard to sales of its new line of jets in the Asian market.
According to the author, Al Qaeda could deliver a crushing blow to Boeing
simply by issuing a decree declaring war upon any company purchasing
airplanes from Boeing. The author states that Al Qaeda would simply need
to follow up on the threat with the downing of a flight in the Orient or in
the West by means of shoulder guided missiles, and then state the reason
for the attack.
He projects that such an attack would be catastrophic for Boeing, in terms
of contracts and in terms of stock performance.
This is but one of many postings that appear on a regular basis with regard
to the plans for attacks by Al Qaeda. The scenario proposed by the author
of the post is chilling and is certainly plausible. The effect of such a
strategy is predictable.

Did We Drop the Ball, Again ?
It's been reported a U.S. Predator spotted bin Laden's chief lieutenant Al-Zawahiri somewhere in the border area of Afghanistan and Pakistan. If we spotted him, we should have vaporized him...just like we should have sent Coward Mullah Omar to paradise when we spotted him fleeing Kandahar on a motorcycle.
A Hellfire missile is a bad thing, or a good thing, depending on how you look at it....coming or going.
The Greatest Threat
CIA Director George Tenet told the Senate Intelligence Committee today that the al-Qaeda terror group is seriously damaged but has spread its radical anti-American agenda to other Islamic extremist groups that now pose the greatest threat to the United States.
No Shit, George.
Cut to the Chase
Everyone has been saying this for years.
It's time to slow dance...
We must dedicate the necessary resources (whatever they might be) and go kill these bastards. And while we're at it, we've got to secure the Pakistani Nukes. We're going to have to do it sooner or later; might as well do it now.
The Nuclear Islamic Regime of Pakistan is a threat. Plain and simple.
All said and done, Musharraf IS a Muslim.
Read this BULLSHIT!
"Because many of Islam's young people do not yet know how to bear arms, not to mention use them, and because the agents of the Cross [Western nations] are hobbling the Muslims and preventing them from planning [jihad] for the sake of Allah – your brothers the Mujahideen in the Arabian Peninsula have decided to publish this booklet to serve the Mujahid brother in his place of isolation, and he will do the exercises and act according to the military knowledge included within it. …"
I guess Al Gore is ultimately responsible for this.
Should Syria be first?
How about Poland, South Korea, Russia, North Korea?

A trading company led by the cousin of Syria's dictator, Bashar Assad, smuggled millions of dollars worth of sophisticated arms and equipment to Saddam Hussein for three years prior to the Iraqi leader's overthrow, reports the Los Angeles Times.
At least one shipment of arms was completed with the help of the Syrian government in violation of a U.N. arms embargo.
Just prior to the U.S.-led effort to oust Hussein, SES International Corp. signed at least 50 contracts to supply weapons and gear to Iraq, the paper reports, saying the arms transfers included 1,000 heavy machine guns and up to 20 million bullets for assault rifles.
Among the Times' findings:
A Polish company shipped up to 380 surface-to-air missile engines to Baghdad through Syria;
A South Korean firm shipped $8 million in telecommunications equipment for "air defense";
A Slovenian firm shipped 20 battle tank barrels to the Syrian firm early in 2002;
Two North Korean officials went to Damascus to discuss an Iraqi payment of $10 million for components for ballistic missiles.
In March, the Bush administration accused Syria of supplying Iraq with night-vision goggles, but the Times reports the White House was unaware of how extensive the smuggling was.
The reports says another company, Al Bashair Trading Co., a Baghdad firm, also was involved in the smuggling, with executives of the firm meeting with North Korean firms before the war began.
The Los Angeles daily's three-month investigation included the translation of 800 signed contracts found in the Al Bashair Trading Co. office shortly before U.S. troops entered Baghdad.
Not all the weapons were delivered, but some may still be in use by terrorists battling the U.S. occupation forces, the newspaper said.
SES International Corp. denied any wrongdoing, while Syria's foreign ministry refused to comment to the Times.
As WorldNetDaily reported, a Russian company, Moscow-based Aviaconversiya Ltd., supplied a portable GPS-jamming device to Iraq prior to the war and helped personnel there operate the technology, according to U.S. intelligence reports.
The owner of the firm denied any wrongdoing but suggested a third party – such as Syria – could have passed along the equipment to Iraq.

60 bombers ready to strike: Taliban
From correspondents in Kabul
SIX people were killed when a suspected suicide bomber detonated explosives strapped to his body after being arrested by intelligence agents near Kabul international airport, Afghan officials said today.
A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the blast, which he said was aimed at International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) peacekeeping troops based at the airport.
He warned that dozens more suicide bombers were in the capital.
Kabul police chief Baba Jan told reporters at the blast scene: "Chairman (Abdul) Jalal along with four bodyguards were killed while trying to arrest a terrorist who had explosive devices with him."
Jalal was the head of the 21st intelligence directorate, a department of the Afghan intelligence service.
"In total six people, including the terrorist, were killed."
The police chief said the suspect was carrying an explosive device which was taken from him, but he then detonated other explosives strapped to his body.
The intelligence officers' white Toyota Surf jeep was left a mangled wreck by the explosion.
"A terrorist carrying explosives in a pressure cooker was chased and arrested," one security source, who would not be named, said.
"After he was arrested he was put in the car and then the bomb exploded."
Police chief Jan said the bomber was a foreigner, but gave no other details on his identity.
The Taliban spokesman said the attack had been carried out by a man named Abdullah, a 35-year-old from Chechnya.
"We claim the responsibility for the suicide attack today in Kabul," the spokesman, who called himself Abdul Samad, told news agency AFP by satellite phone.
"He was walking toward the ISAF base in Kabul airport to carry out a suicide attack. The second option was if he could not reach the base he would target ISAF patrols or other coalition vehicles driving on that road, but he was arrested by Afghan security and he carried out the suicide attack and killed himself and five others."
The Taliban spokesman said other suicide bombers would attack ISAF troops, coalition forces and people working for the United Nations and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
"A group of 60 suicide bombers have entered Kabul city. Their target will be ISAF, the coalition, UN, and other NGOs or people working for foreigners.
"We are more organised now; we will focus our attacks on cities now rather than the borders," he said, referring to a wave of violence along the eastern border blamed on Taliban militants.
Hundreds of ISAF peacekeeping troops are based at the airport, their main supply route.
The bombing is the worst to hit the Afghan capital since a suicide car bomber on June 7 killed himself and four German ISAF soldiers in an attack blamed on Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda terror network.
The latest blast in northern Kabul did not interfere with a historic convention meeting several kilometres to the west where delegates were preparing to vote on Afghanistan's new constitution.
At least seven rockets have hit Kabul since the loya jirga or grand assembly opened on December 14, causing some damage but no casualties.
A bomb blast on Thursday destroyed the wall of a United Nations guesthouse but no-one was injured.
Afghan and ISAF troops on Friday arrested seven men suspected of carrying out the rocket attacks, Kabul garrison commander General Muhammad Ayoob said.
The men were arrested during a search in Deh Sabz 30km northeast of Kabul. They were not armed but posters of bin Laden and other documents were found which linked them to "terrorist" organisations, he said.
Two years after the fall of the Taliban regime, militants continue to launch regular attacks on troops and aid workers.

Saddam and Bin Laden
I don't know if I believe it, but this is an interesting post. Very well researched.
We Need More Like Him
Lt. Col. Allen B. West should be given a medal, not fined. We need more men like him in our military. Turn the tables, and the IslamoFacsist would have fired to kill, not frighten.
This is not "Cowboys and Indians", it's the real deal. We must win at whatever the cost. Whatever!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The most powerful conventional bomb in the U.S. arsenal exploded in a huge, fiery cloud on a Florida test range on Friday after being dropped by an Air Force cargo plane in the last developmental step for the nearly 11-ton"mother of all bombs."
An MC-130E Combat Talon I dropped the 21,700-pound satellite-guided GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb, or MOAB, over the test range at Eglin Air Force Base in northwestern Florida, said base spokesman Jake Swinson.
A plume of smoke rose more than 10,000 feet in the air and was visible 40 miles away in Pensacola, Florida.
"It looked like a big mushroom cloud filled with flames as it grew and grew and grew," Swinson said after the afternoon test. "It was one of the most awesome spectacles I've seen."
The Air Force called the test successful, saying the bomb separated cleanly from the aircraft with the help of a parachute at 20,500 feet, glided 41 seconds to its target area and detonated as planned.
Officials said the bomb was developed in only nine weeks to be available for use this spring in the Iraq war, but commanders opted not to use it. Its only previous live test came on March 11, the week before the U.S.-led invasion.
The MOAB, the most powerful nonnuclear U.S. bomb, carries 18,700 pounds of high explosives, detonating just above the ground when the tip of the 30-foot-long bomb hits the earth, Swinson said.
Swinson said the bomb was now available to U.S. commanders, but said there were no immediate plans for it to go into production.
The United States has had larger conventional bombs in the past but none in the current U.S. arsenal is as big.
The MOAB is envisioned as a successor to BLU-82, the 15,000-pound "Daisy Cutter."
The "Daisy Cutter" was used to clear helicopter landing areas in the Vietnam War and was used in the 1991 Gulf War and in 2001 in Afghanistan. In the latter two conflicts, U.S. commanders used the "Daisy Cutter" partly for the psychological effect of such a massive blast.
Swinson said it was the last of four developmental tests for the MOAB -- nicknamed the "mother of all bombs" by some in the military. The two live tests were preceded by two inert tests.
Lynda Rutledge, MOAB program manager at Eglin, said there were minor modifications to the MOAB tested on Friday compared to the one detonated in March, adding that the latest test sought to give commanders a chance to understand how the big bomb performs, particularly relating to targeting.
Poor weather forced a postponement of the test on Tuesday and a problem with a laptop computer aboard the plane carrying the bomb forced another delay on Thursday, officials said.
I guess Bush did mislead us.
Another Olive Branch
RAMALLAH, West Bank — Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat called for an end to three years of violence, saying Wednesday that Israel had a right to live in peace, and his prime minister urged an immediate and comprehensive cease-fire.
Bullshit!!!! is all I can say. Arafat has no desire, whatsoever, for peace. The Israelis' should have killed that bastard a long time ago.
Opposition to the War
I have one thing to say to all the opponents of the War on Terror.
We can either fight them there, or we can fight them here. But the reality is we must fight. Don't you people understand that without International security, there can be no National security. If we have no National security, then Domestic policies are irrevalent.
Why is this so hard to understand?
Breaking for Cover
The United Nations is breaking for cover.
The Red Cross is breaking for cover.
The Democrats want to break for cover.
I agree with Zell Miller. The next five years are crucial for the survival of our nation, and will determine the kind of world future generations will live in.

Are The Terrorists Right? by Jay Bryant
The Muslim terrorists think America is soft. They believe that if you put enough pressure - violent, physical, in-your-face pressure on the United States, it will turn tail and run.
The next few months will determine whether they're right or not, and if it proves that they are, you can forget about American world leadership for a long, long time.
Here's the evidence for their point of view:
1. We gave up in Vietnam. As a football coach might explain after a loss, we didn't get beat, we beat ourselves.
2. Even with a warmonger like (hiss, boo) Ronald Reagan in the White House, we pulled the Marines out of Lebanon in 1983 after a single terrorist attack resulted in casualties.
3. In the first Gulf War, we didn't finish the job, abandoned our allies inside Iraq and went home as soon as the easy part was behind us.
4. In Mogadishu, Somalia, we let a handful of rag-tag rebels in pickup trucks bully us right off the continent.
5. In Yugoslavia, we twice made "no casualties" the guiding principle of our policy, and now the general who implemented that policy is a leading candidate for President.
You've got to admit, that's a pretty impressive list.
From September 11, 2001 until May 1, 2003, it looked for sure that President George W. Bush had put an end to that record of cowardly leadership, but now the president's approval rate is sagging in the wake of a constant bombardment from - not so much the terrorists in Iraq, but from the Democratic presidential candidates on the campaign hustings, and their toadies in Congress, academia and the media.
Egged on by an activist base within their party that cowers at the thought of a strong America, the Democrats have turned their backs on their Roosevelt-Truman heritage.
One listens in vain for a proposal from any one of them on how they would go about building a free, safe, prosperous and pro-American Iraq. Instead, they preach a negative, accusatory message based on falsehoods, absurd interpretations of events and vindictiveness.
There's only one place they can go, and they're headed that way at breakneck speed: capitulation, withdrawal, bring the troops home and abandon the Iraqis to their fate. Who cares about them, anyway?
Mark my words, if a Democrat is elected President in 2004, it's over - not just in Iraq and Afghanistan, but throughout the world. No one old enough to read this column will live long enough to see a strong America again.
We'll be Gulliverized by modern-day Lilliputians. Our very sovereignty will be at risk, as the United Nations and other organized elements of Lilliputia tie us down with a million strength-sapping strings. Our economy will grow weaker and weaker, as one Kyoto Treaty after another takes its toll. If we object, we'll be demonized like college boys in Feminism 101.
Why is it that when a murderous terrorist bombs a Red Cross building, Democrat politicians feel no outrage toward the perpetrators, but instead vent their anger at the one man, George W. Bush, who's trying to rid the world of such disgusting creatures?
My only complaint with the administration is that it is not being nearly forceful enough in answering the poisonous fumes rising from the sons and daughters of Tammany. Thoughtful statements from Powell, Rumsfeld, Rice, even the President are not enough. I say no more Mr. Nice Guy.
Now is the time for America to rise up, to bear the burden and pay the price for freedom, and, yes, let us say it, to make the world safe for democracy. How many days of infamy must we endure before the party that once cheered all those words stops acting like the al Qaeda-American Bund, and finds the nerve to stand for something more enduring than the Iowa caucuses.
The fasting month of Ramadan is supposedly a time for inner reflection, devotion to God, and self-control. This Ramadan is being perverted by people whose worldly goals have nothing to do with any of that - who defile their religion and kill humanitarian workers - all because they believe that if they are violent enough, America's knees will buckle, and they can subject their fellow Muslims throughout the world to a Talibanesque nightmare, and destroy the power of the Great Satan.
Terrorists deserve the contempt of Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, atheists, and even Democrats.
If it doesn't happen, they'll win. Because they'll have been proven right. We're too soft to lead the world.

French Missiles Used in Hotel Attack
(CNSNews.com) - A British newspaper reported that half of the rockets used in Sunday's attack on the Al Rasheed Hotel were French weapons produced after an arms embargo was imposed against Iraq following the Gulf War.
The key here is "after an arms embargo was imposed".
Once again, which side are they on?
Do you think this could possibly illustrate why they didn't support (and wanted to break for cover) the U.S.?
Anyone who trusts the French, is making a HUGE mistake!
I say: F__k em!
I’ve done got me a problem, and I needs your help. This is probably a question for Uncle Remus, but he ain’t in. In fact, he’s been dead since around 1880.
Anyways, you knows I likes to grows me some peppers and maters in the spring, and greens in the fall. Well my spring plot done got drowned out, but my fall stuff is looking pretty, except for them damn squirrels. Squirrels will eat anything and everything – plants, trees, bird feeders, lawn furniture, hammocks, hoses, plastic – hell you name it – they’ll eat it. Even the grill, but I done made an example outta him. Anyway, last year I done got me one of them there high powered one pumper 22 cal. pellet guns (with a scope) and took matters into my own hands. I capped a bunch of em’. I even got me a count sheet by date and quantity to prove it. Wife made it for me on her computer.
I’m a nice guy, so I done got rid of my one pumper cause my neighbors youngins getting bigger. Theys wandering around all over everything and everywhere now. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that lead pellets don’t ricochet, causing they do. Couldn’t live with myself if I capped a youngin. The neighborhood I live in does not support whipping the ole 12 guage home defender out and vaporizing these bastards. What would the golfers think?
"We're under attack!"
I got a buddy of mine lives close by. Hims and his ol lady raise African fighting cats (damn things look just like leopards, just smaller, but quicker), and he offered to loan me a couple two-three for a couple two-three days – problem is, they ain’t selective. They would probably take care of my rodent problem, but they’d also do the dogs (I like dogs), other cats, and maybe some of their owners. No shit, first time I met em’, I couldn’t shave for a week. They clawed my face good.
My Gran Pappy used to trap em’ and gas em'. He rigged a cage with a cover and attached it to his trucks exhaust pipe. And you know the rest of the story. Worked every time.
Them damn chipmonks is a different story. Theys like the Viet Cong causing they knows how to use tunnels. Sneaky bastards.
Does Bejus like squirrels? How bout Dax?
Any help show would be appreciated.
