I had promised to at least post THE PICTURE GALLERY, even if I was going to be late with everything else. Turns out there are minor issues about doing that. See, if I fall asleep before midnight, there won't be a simple post. And if I am asleep, there won't be a simple post. The problem is that , unless I start "sleep posting", there is no way to make a post when I am sawing logs. I am going to have to work on this.

Unless things drastically change, we probably won't go to war with Iran. At least not during Dubya's shift. Why? Because the logistics just aren't in place to do it.

Look how long it took to get a minimal amount of troops on the ground in Afghanistan and how much longer for Iraq. Amateurs talk about "tactics", professionals talk about "logistics". Besides, an attack on Iran would set off the fuse that most of the Islamic world is waiting for. This would become a global Jihad and no modern nation is capable of dealing with massive guerrilla attacks on their own soil. There aren't enough cops, or soildiers to be everywhere at once. The Nazi's learned this in France, we learned it in Vietnam. Certain hawkish elements in the Bush Administation haven't. Which is one of the reasons that Adm. Fallon was not discouraged from retiring by the end of this month. He had the guts to tell everyone that the "Emperor had no clothes".

So, what are your plans for the weekend? Plan to do anything, that you'll remember, for St. Paddy's Day?

Enjoy yourselve's.
