The world is safer.

Iraqi militants launched two RPG attacks on hotels housing foreign journalists today including the Baghdad Sheraton. But don't forget; according to El Busho, the world, and Iraq, is a safer place now.

CIA tells us what we knew all along.

The CIA report into Iraq came out today, and concluded that Saddam Hussein did not possess stockpiles of illicit weapons at the time of the U.S. invasion in March 2003 and had not begun any program to produce them. The report is authored by Charles Duelfer, who advises the director of central intelligence on Iraqi weapons. It makes clear that Iraq's WMD program was essentially destroyed in 1991 and Saddam ended Iraq's nuclear program after the 1991 Gulf War. That's what the military told El Busho before the invasion. That's what Powell told us before the invasion, and that's what we all knew already. I'm still waiting for Bush's impeachment, but given there's only 4 weeks to the election, there's still a chance he won't rig it and will be removed by vote.

Republicans 0 Democrats 2

It seems to be generally accepted that Kerry "won" the debate last thursday between him and El Busho. Last night was a chance for a reprieve from the republican camp. And what happened? Edwards trounces Sideshow Dick, and in a classic blunder, Cheney recommended that if people wanted the truth, they should go to That site, is in fact, one of the biggest anti-Bush sites on the net, run by George Soros. Cheney meant to say .org but he gave the wrong domain name. A slip of the tongue sent republicans scurrying to a site which gives many strong, proven arguments why the Bush camp is wrong on all fronts and why El Busho needs to be removed. Nicely done. Still, what do you expect from the Bush & Dick camp ?

Mount St. Helens is erupting again.

They've evacuated the observatory and closed all airspace around Mount St. Helens. A huge plume of smoke and ash is rising out of the crater right now.

And the world is a different place.

Mark the history books. October 4th 2004, Brian Binnie ascends to 368,000ft to grab the Ansari X-Prize on the second flight into space in 4 days. This is the dawn of commercial spaceflight. SpaceShipOne : GovernmentZero. I saw it live - well - live on TV at least. It was amazing. Apparently Binnie shut off the engine manually. They reckon he could have gone a lot higher. As it was he was already 40,000ft above the target altitude.
