Quote of the day

It's actually an old one, but I heard about it on the radio tonight.

American military personnel helped move about 600 tons of uranium in the form called yellowcake. It had been stored at Tuwaitha, an installation 12 miles south of Baghdad, which had been the site of Iraq’s nuclear program.

The Times was very careful to add this though:
The yellowcake removed from Iraq — which was not the same yellowcake that President Bush claimed, in a now discredited section of his 2003 State of the Union address, that Mr. Hussein was trying to purchase in Africa — is used in an early stage of the nuclear fuel cycle.

So, he had 600 tons of yellowcake, but the Times doesn't want to confuse you about BUSH'S LIES!

But what about the 600 tons of yellowcake?

BUSH LIED! He's a lying liar! Pay no attention to the 600 tons of yellowcake.

Funny, I just read this about Bush and yellowcake. Apparently Iran -according to theNYTimes - moved several tons of yellowcake right in front of the UN inspectors:

"Remember that Saddam Hussein had a giant, rickety warehouse full of yellowcake uranium -- all the time we were told he had no WMDs by the sleazy Western media. We heard about that warehouse only three years after Saddam was overthrown, the yellowcake was very carefully repacked and moved out, and it was sent to Canada for reprocessing. The uranium warehouse was never bombed or shelled. The risk of a radioactive disaster -- or at least a P.R. disaster -- was much too great. President George W. Bush tolerated years and years of vicious personal smears by the Democrats and the Left about his "failure to find WMDs" just to ensure that the yellowcake was moved safely out of the country. That's the kind of man George W. Bush is. He did the right thing, and he took the hits from all the sleazy demagogues."

That's a great paragraph but these are much better:

"...A'jad [Imadinnerjacket] organized suicide charges in the Iran-Iraq war, and last year he appointed a known torturer to be the police chief in Tehran. A'jad's personal guru, Yazdi, calmly discussed on video how it is legal under Islam to rape prisoners -- boys or women -- prior to their execution; the only restraint is that raping a woman should be done in private. It's the dress code, ya see. The naked body of women must not be exposed to the lustful eyes of men, even if the woman is being officially raped, tortured, and murdered. Three years ago, they did it with a Canadian woman journalist.

"These people are bestial, sadistic, anti-human, the very worst that humanity throws up from its cesspit of horrors. Legal rape-murder is sanctioned by Twelver doctrine. (The Ayatollah Khomeini himself explained that intercourse with animals is permissible. But women can't wear short sleeves.)"

-from American Thinker Does Imadinnerjacket want a radioactive cloud over Iran?
