Devine Strake, Bush’s simulated nuke test, is STILL on the table.

Two agencies, the Pentagon's Defense Threat Reduction Agency and the Energy Department's National Nuclear Security Administration, say that Divine Strake (the name, they insist, has no meaning) will help the government learn more about destroying underground bunkers being used by U.S. enemies.

Iraqi Leaders and Iraqi People Prefer US Democratic Party to Republicans

Numerous recent polls in both the US and Iraq have shown that a majority of the people prefer the ideas of the Democratic Party regarding the war in Iraq to those coming out of the White House.
