Bush better get going with the reconstruction efforts. And Palestanian solution. We aren't going to get anywhere if this somehow doesn't end up with a nation of Palestine. There has been some noise about us using some air bases in Iraq. I think only if the Iraqis allow it. That is what Rumsfield said today but I am not sure I trust him.

They say peace protesters will protest at the Lockheed plant in Sunnyvale tomorrow. That's where I work but I won't join them. They sound too radical and I don't agree with what they say on their web site. A lot of old news there and they don't know what they are talking about. From what I can tell. Typical conspiracy theory crap. Besides, we don't make weapons in Sunnyvale anymore. They should be in Texas. Uh, well... maybe it would be safer for them in Sunnyvale. I don't mind where they go or what they do, just don't damage my car. Personal property is another issue.

I didn't realize is was so long since I last wrote. The war is going well from the military side. The damn fanatics are killing a lot of people in order to... what? I don't understand them. Do they really think they can win by hiding behind innocents? At this rate it looks like a couple of hundred US soldiers will die although I don't think the toll has gone over a hundred yet. They dropped some more bombs on Saddam again and this time there is some hope we got him. That would be cool. No grief over his loss. I do seem to agree with Bush on one thing, I don't think the UN needs to play a big role in governing Iraq. If I can believe Rumsfield I think we can get control back to the Iraqis faster than the UN. Of course that means the French and Russians may get rooked out of their oil contracts which I think is why they opposed the whole war to begin with. The Arab world is still pissed at us and I still fear that. I only hope that we do what we say and get the Iraqi people what they need and that no civil war erupts. Also that we get out of Iraq in a reasonable manner and don't appear to be controling anything. Like religion in the region. I really wish the Christian missionaries all poised to go "help" could be kept out. That is one factor the region doesn't need. I just woke up and need to get some breakfast. Then take a walk?
