Open Threat/d Thursday

Harry Reid’s “Undocumented Americans” (see previous post)?
Corvallis getting a wrist slap for politicking on public time?
The Oregonian’s sympathetic account of a girl who “can’t” go to college (she’s illegally here).
The Boston woman who’s illegally here and married to a missing American GI in Iraq.
Food for thought on a lovely Thursday.

Iraq and WMD

From Flopping Aces (h/t Orbusmax) on yet another bunch of documents that illustrate Saddam was moving WMD, people, equipment before the war.

The 1990-2003 War Against Saddam has millions of untold stories. Perhaps one of the most important happened at the onset of the invasion. On the evening of March 22 there are several reports that Russians were witness to an American airborne assault near the Syrian / Jordanian / Iraq border, on or near Highway 11, and in the vicinity of Akashat. Allegedly American airborne troops and/or Special Forces were trying to seize WMD. They were detected by Iraqi forces, surrounded, and as many as 30 were killed or captured. Forces from Jordan were sent to provide air support and rescue for the survivors.

The rest is here.

Hmmm…From Pro Illegal Immigration Crowd

Right off their websites (re: the rally Wednesday):

Actually, the “Guest Worker” program as proposed by Bush and co. isn’t so great. Maybe if these workers were actually treated as guests, if they had the same protections and rights on the job, if they had the ability to become citizens, then it would be a good thing. But it’s not, as the guest workers would be treated more like slaves than guests.

My favorite commment of the day from one of the anti-immigrant wackos was in response to my question about her statement about the importance of the rule of law, that these people (the detained workers) were criminals. I asked her if she would have supported slavery when it was legal. But the fun part was when I asked her what should would be willing to do for her children. Wouldn’t she cross a border, break a law if it was the only way to give her children a chance of having a decent life? She said that instead of coming here and breaking the law, she would organize a revolution and overthrow the government at home. But wouldn’t that be, umm, I dunno…ILLEGAL???

In other words, this person clamoring about respecting the law, and getting all crazy over some (victimless!) forgery, instead suggested that people rise up in mass to violently overthrow their government. Interesting…
