Default DemocRATS and the Vietnam Deja VU

Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, Connecticut Democrat, was asked Sunday what
he
thinks would happen if American troops leave Iraq.

"Well, it can't be any worse than it is today," Mr. Dodd replied
on CBS'
"Face the Nation."

Mr. Dodd's words echoed his remarks from the Congressional Record
of
March 12, 1975: "The greatest gift our country can give to the
Cambodian
people is peace, not guns. And the best way to accomplish that goal is
by
ending military aid now."

The subsequent communist takeover of Cambodia led, of course, to
one of
the great slaughters of the 20th century.

LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Zoo paid $4,500 to an expert in the
ancient Chinese art of feng shui to ensure three endangered golden
monkeys on loan from China can have a strong life force.

Consulting the feng shui expert was part of the cost for a $7.4
million enclosure for the golden monkeys debuting at the zoo later his
year. Feng shui focuses on balance in design to promote health and
happiness.

Feng shui is in demand among high-end architects and interior
designers, but Beverly Hills-based feng shui expert Simona Mainini
said the Los Angeles Zoo's effort may be a first in animal enclosure
design.

"It's very experimental," Mainini said. "We don't have any books on
feng shui for monkeys. We just have to assume that Darwin is correct
and that there is a connection and what is good for humans is good for
monkeys."

The exhibit for the male and two female golden monkeys is nearing
completion and they are expected to arrive by the end of the year,
once China approves the export permit.

Exhibit designers from the Seattle-based Portico Group said the
enclosure was designed to re-create the feel of a rural Chinese
village.

"The viewing building has a Chinese character," said principal
architect Charles Mays, who hire Mainini. "We thought it would be more
authentic if we went that extra step and made sure it was done with
good feng shui."

Mainini said she tweaked the plans to maximize the good qi (pronounced
chee). For example, she recommended moving a door on the observation
tower or adding a fountain or water feature to "soften, with moisture,
the harsh energy" in that area of the tower.

The city will pay the Chinese government $100,000 a year for the
period of the 10-year loan of the simians.

"The idea is to get people beyond just looking at the animals so they
experience how the animals and people live," zoo General Manager John
Lewis said. "So when people see that a species is endangered, maybe
they'll feel motivated to do something to save them."

Golden monkeys, which weigh about 30 pounds, have blue faces, long
hair and make a catlike meow.

PJ O'Donovan - what a phony moniker - a Zionist posing as an Irishman. The
phony using this name is nothing more than a right-wing conservative in the
mold of other neo-cons like Wolfowitz, Perle, Cheney, Bush etc. etc. etc.
The next President of the US is going to have to promise to bring the troops
home NOW! not with some obscure date in the future as Bush and other
Republicans are saying in their continued pursuit of a military victory in
Iraq. The next President of the US is going to have to set dates and an
irreversible timetable for taking all US forces out of Iraq. And that
timetable will have to be a quick one to stop the bleeding of the US forces
and wasting of more US tax dollars to fight an unwinable war.

addressing the issue.

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. - Middlebury College history students are no longer
allowed to use Wikipedia in preparing class papers.

The school's history department recently adopted a policy that says
it's OK to consult the popular online encyclopedia, but that it can't
be cited as an authoritative source by students.

The policy says, in part, "Wikipedia is not an acceptable citation,
even though it may lead one to a citable source."

History professor Neil Waters says Wikipedia is an ideal place to
start research but an unacceptable way to end it.

Starting with name-calling in the subject line isn't a terribly good
way to elevate the level of discourse.

Taken over by POL Pot whose gov was recognised by the US and Aus as the
slaughter took place. When the Vietmenese went into to stop the slaughter
they were condemned by the US and Aus governments. Even after the slaughter
was stopped by the Viementese the US and Aus gov still recognised Pol Pot as
the Government in Cambodia

What was to do with you in the first place? Just like Vietnam, Iraq,
Nicaragua, Cuba etc? You've never solved these problems with your self
serving interventions.

D'oh

Iraq invasion plan 'delusional'

The US is now sending some 20,000 extra troops to Iraq
The US invasion plan for Iraq envisaged that only 5,000 US troops
would remain in Iraq by December 2006, declassified Central Command
documents show.

The material also shows that the US military projected a stable, pro-
US and democratic Iraq by that time.

The August 2002 material was obtained by the National Security Archive
(NSA). Its officials said the plans were based on delusional
assumptions.

The US currently has some 132,000 troops in the violence-torn state.
