Failed State?

I might be the only geek alive who is actually watching the testimony of Petraeus on the situation in Iraq. I find two things about this incredibly amusing...

1.) I tell you to lower the amount of money in your checking account. At the time your balance is $100,000.000 you then deposit $40,000.00 in your checking account and withdrawal $30,000.00. Did you lower your checking checking account balance? No you actually have more money in it then when I asked and you take credit for a withdrawal....politics you have to love it.

2.) The notion that we can't leave Iraq a failed state. If history tells us anything you sure as hell can. After the British, French left ______(Insert African Country Here) 90% of the states failed and we didn't blink and eye. If the British leave northern Ireland will the terrorists get stronger or stop? Did India fall to pieces after the occupation left? Where are they now? We are in a battle of sunk costs and losing it is time to say sorry and move on.

Hi there

You have recently included a link to my blog on your site.

Several bloggers have asked me to change the name of my blog because to them 'nasty predator' seemed to be out of line. My new name is BrawnyHunk (yes, that's the name of it ;-) ), and I'm now hosted at

http://www.brawnyhunk.com

Please update the link url to my blog which is included in your blog.

I look forward to talking to you soon,

Cheers,
Simon
