You sure that isn't Monica?
All I can say is 'mission accomplished'.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Iraqi police found 38 tortured bodies and witnessed the slow release of five hostages amidst general violence throughout Baghdad Thursday.
Iraqi police recovered the 38 bodies showing signs of torture in the capital city during a 24-hour period ending Thursday morning.
Five of 30 people kidnapped five days ago by gunmen dressed in army uniforms were slowly released over the past few days in central Baghdad, Iraqi police said Thursday.
The five released included two Iraqi football players, police said. No information on the other members of the kidnapped group -- including the head of Iraq's Olympic Committee, Ahmad el Hijiye -- was reported.
At least three people were killed and 10 others wounded Thursday when a car bomb exploded on a busy central Baghdad street, Iraqi emergency police said.
An Iraqi army convoy traveling in the western Baghdad neighborhood al-Jamia was also bombed by insurgents, police said. Police cordoned off the area and have not released a casualty report.
Meanwhile the mayor of Mahmudiya, Muayyad Fadhil, said Thursday that the relatives of a family at the center of a rape and murder investigation involving U.S. troops had not yet decided if they would allow the victims' remains to be exhumed for forensic tests.
He said the family is still consulting with religious leaders. Former Pfc. Steven Green and four other U.S. soldiers are charged with murder and rape in the March incident. Another soldier was charged with failing to report the incident.
Thursday's violence came after the U.N. special representative for Iraq urged Iraqis to find a way to stop the killings in the war-torn country, calling them a "national tragedy."
Ashraf Qazi was speaking on Wednesday the day after the U.N. Assistance Mission for Iraq issued a report saying more than 14,000 civilians have been killed in Iraq this year, and that more than 5,800 deaths occurred in May and June alone. (U.N.: 14,000 Iraqis killed in 2006)
"The emerging phenomenon of Iraqis killing Iraqis on a daily basis is nothing less than a catastrophe and a national tragedy for the people of Iraq," Qazi said.
He also urged citizens to cooperate with the legal authorities and urged restraint by multinational and Iraqi security forces to avert civilian casualties.
Qazi said ending the "spiraling violence" must be Iraqis' "immediate and overriding priority." And, he said, they must focus on the root causes of it.
But as he spoke assaults and kidnappings continued to rage across the country. A wave of assaults in Baghdad and Kirkuk on Wednesday killed at least 19 people, including a senior Interior Ministry employee and a family of four at a grocery store. A U.S. Marine death, as a result of a non-hostile incident on Tuesday, was also reported.
Also Wednesday, kidnappers abducted more than 20 members of the agency that cares for Sunni religious sites nationwide. And police found 10 bodies dumped in the capital.
Nuri al-Maliki, Iraq's prime minister, addressed recent days of violence -- including the recent targeting of dozens of civilians at a day laborer gathering spot in a Kufa marketplace, at a marketplace in Mahmoudiya and at a cafe in Tuz Khurmato. He said the fact that al Qaeda in Iraq has resorted to hitting soft targets shows its weaknesses.
He also said the national reconciliation plan that he unveiled recently is the "only bridge and the basic crossing to the shores of peace." A government committee will meet on Saturday to begin working on the plan, which al-Maliki said the insurgency wants to undermine
And you are complaining about a BJ?

Typical right-wing ignorance and distraction tactics! The deeper we get into the hole in Iraq, the more they focus on BJ's. Our representatives are busy today legislating on the Pledge Of Allegiance! This is what happens when Republicans are running the show! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Yeah, that's how you righties solve all your issues, with guns and bullets. Come on, get brave, and tell us all where you live. Don't bother, we already know, we recognize the fly over states as soon as you start threatening to pull out your bullets!
Go crawel into the confession both, and pray your way into heaven, right along with the terrorists!
You're a real idiot, no wonder you're all for Bush!

Praying won't get anyone to heaven. According to all of the right wing ministers, it appears that their God is always short on cash. You have to buy your way to heaven. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Good Point Rich,
Only it seems much of the money goes for their solid gold faucets, and air-conditioning for their dog houses!
One doesn't have to go inside a building, to be with ones God, whomever She/He may be, nor is it necessary to get any church or organized religion involved, in order to help the poor and needy. They are never very far from ones front door.
