Ga. police officers shoot each other
BUFORD, Ga. - Two off-duty officers from different police departments wounded each other in a gun fight in the middle of a road in an Atlanta suburb, authorities said. . .
Belcher described Daily as "an outstanding officer" and said he was suspended while the investigation is under way.
It was bound to happen. Give a bunch of low paid thugs the right to carry concealed weapons anywhere they want and they'll eventually start shooting each other, , , on second thought, maybe that's not a bad thing.
But the world is full of stupid fucking idiots. . .

Lynch: US 'surge' tipped scales in Iraq
By CHRIS TOMLINSON, Associated Press Writer
BAGHDAD - Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch has spent years thinking about the war in Iraq, both as a senior strategist in 2005 and now as a division commander. He has seen strategies, missions and buzzwords come and go, but he now believes U.S. commanders finally have a feel for the battlefield.
Wow, what fucking geniuses. They now have a "feel" for the battlefield. So glad we have such competent military leaders that after five years of war they've finally gotten a "feel" for it.
Lessee, they increased the number of troops on the streets of Bagdad and then had everyone else retreat into bunkers inside "safe zones."
Yea, the "surge" is working. Meanwhile, Iraqi civilians contiinue to be killed and maimed by mad bombers. Good job General!
Ok proles, all together now. . . on your knees. There's a big "surge" waiting for you.
But listen, the GOP candidates have all weighed in on the Roger Clemens doping scandal, abortion, "family values" and Anne Coulter! Glad they're focusing on real issues.

Joe Manchin said in the Democrats' weekly radio address.
WTF?! Who let this mental midget near a microphone? What moron in the DNC let JoeBob Mancini even open his mouth in public? Oh well, I guess they take turns. . . or something.
