"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

Saturday, April 01, 2006


The mood in Washington has been sour lately, so many were grateful when the Democrats in Congress provided a little levity Wednesday, March 29 by issuing their national security strategy.

It would have been more appropriate to delay its release until Saturday, April 1st - April Fools' Day.

On Feb. 3rd, the Defense Department issued its quadrennial report on defense strategy. It was 92 pages long. The "Democratic Plan to Protect America and Restore Our Leader ship in the World" is six pages long. Half of these pages are in Spanish, saying what was said in English. And there is a cover page in each language.

So the actual "plan" is just two pages long, presented in bullet points in large type, with plenty of white space between them. It contains 833 words. Party elders must have burned the midnight oil for months to produce this magnum opus. ---Jack Kelly
