    Selling arms while on a "peace" mission seems odd to me. I will never understand the way REAL gub'ment works.

    Well, we'd need a definition of "peace".

    I'm sure its, "Us and our allies in charge."


    Interesting thing about those guided bombs is that they're satellite guided and computer controlled... sounds hackable.

    It's the Bush admin, so it's obviously misspelled.

    It's supposed to read "piece mission".

    YOu could start a whole thread on these terms:

    No child left behind. ( no money for poor schools)
    Operation Freedom
    compassionate conservatism

    probably many more, but I actually have to do some work tonight!

    I also read that on top of selling smart bombs to the saudis, he's selling even 'smarter' smart bombs to Israel.
