The bottom line is clear: Our vital interests in Afghanistan are limited and military victory is not the key to achieving them. On the contrary, waging a lengthy counterinsurgency war in Afghanistan may well do more to aid Taliban recruiting than to dismantle the group, help spread conflict further into Pakistan, unify radical groups that might otherwise be quarreling amongst themselves, threaten the long-term health of the U.S. economy, and prevent the U.S. government from turning its full attention to other pressing problems. -- Afghanistan Study Group

Hope you havent killed innocent people yet as when I killed 13 American soliders in my rage at least they have the sense not to execute the PARTIALLY guilty person conerned.

Notice how Americans always have very little concerns for their own crimes but when it comes to others they lay down the full gauntlet. Just imagine how peaceful the earth would be if Americans suddenly disappeared. :-).

Well neway the latest in Iraqi's gf wanganui(you can fuck us) is mental health took 13 hours to provide help to a mentally ill man. Thats not bad says Iraqis around these ways they want us dead rather then provide us with the help we need. So Americans can you please tell us how much money you have spent killing Iraqis and fucking their country up and how much money you have provided to give them professional help in all areas such as their babies they mutilate and kill and people in serious need of mental help who you would much rather poke with sticks to make your money and views??

Police probe pie shop fire.

Police are unsure wheather the fire that destroyed the Pete's Pies shop in Wanganui on Saturday night was deliberately lit.
Detective James Middleton said Wanganui police were asked to investigate because attending firefighters believed the fire might be suspicious.
Mr Middleton examined the scene with a fire safety officer and did not come away with any conclusions. He still had many inquiries to make.
He said he had an entirely open mind at this stage and was awaiting a report from the fire safety officer.

Little lights keep flame burning.

One evening a man took a small candle from a box and began to climb a long, winding stairway.

"Where are we going?" asked the candle.

"We're going up higher than the house to show ships the way to the harbour."

"But no ship in the harbour could ever see my light," said the candle. "It's so very small."

"If your light is small," the man said, "just keep burning brightly and leave the rest to me."

When they reached the top of the long steps, they came to a large lamp. Then he took the candle and lit the lamp. Soon the great polished reflectors behind the lamp sent beams of light out across miles of sea.

We are God's taper. Our job is to keep on shinning, and our effectiveness is in his hands.

David Scoullar, Wanganui Hospital Chaplain (Catholic)

Hello Everyone,
The U.S. Junior Chess Championship is being held alongside the U.S. Women's Championship in St. Louis. You can read a nice report on the first two rounds at both the championships at chessbase.com. Here are the Round 1 & 2 results and the standings. Defending champion Ray Robson managed to draw a fiercely-fought game in Round 1 almost losing to an opponent rated at least 400 points below him!
