    If it weren't for the years and geographical difference, it would seem we are twins! :laugh:

    You could not believe! Hard to breathe outside. I have the air so low, that I've sweatpants on.

    Just had really fierce thunderstorms through here, for the 3rd time today. Should be breaking though! Good luck. Sunday it was 107 at the lake. (we don't even want to think of the heat index.)

    I see no evidence in this article to suggest these were Kurdish terrorists.

    If you are going to say that we armed the Kurdistan rebels in their fight with the Soviet's thus making us culpable.... that argument has already been made in that we armed Bin Laden for the same cause.
