I knew there was some reason I was awake, blogging, until 5:00 this morning...

After days of delays, and hangin' out at the Kuwait Starbucks, at last we have the word.



Cincinnatus returns to Al Asad for a second tour. From everything we've heard, it's going to be: "Will the last Marine to leave the base turn off the lights?" All is truly quiet on that western front, and the long-sought "exit strategy" will probably be in full swing in the next six months or so.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Anywhere except in your local newspaper, or on your mainstream/lamestream major TV networks, where Good News is No News, and No News keeps the public in tune with "the program". Scroll down for the low-down on what exactly that program is -- see Terry Moran.......

Tell me -- Would these two people [SMAK!!!!!] even recognize their countrymen today?

And SMAK!!! to my baby Marine out there in the desert.
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day...
If you make the Most High your dwelling-
even the LORD , who is my refuge-
then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
