    They are now using their actual names and have redesigned their webpage in an attempt to rebrand.

    •  Wow (4.00)
      Good observation. You know, I never go over there, but I just wanted to see how they've rebranded. I caught a glimpse of this one post. It's remarkable:

      I think all but the most obtuse have figured out by now that we are winning, not losing, in Iraq.

      Holy mole sauce! What does that even mean?

      If I were running one of the weekly news magazines, like Time, I'd try to stake out a niche as the magazine that is on America's side. I think it would sell. And I also think it would be the gateway to more accurate and balanced reporting. (Emphasis added.)

      Do these people even listen to themselves type? Take sides = more accurate and balanced. Wowza! What galls me is that their side hasn't yet collapsed under the weight of its own internal inconsistencies. We can only dream.

        Tell that to the families who have lost someone!

        The only second term dubya deserves is 20 to life!

      •   Insurgents kill 15 Iraqi soldiers (none)
        Insurgents have killed 15 Iraqi soldiers travelling in a convoy south of Baghdad, police and officials say.

        The attack happened near the town of Latifiya, in a lawless area known as the "triangle of death".

        The violence came on the second anniversary of the fall of Baghdad to the US-led coalition.

        Tens of thousands of Iraqis joined an anti-US protest in Firdus Square, where Saddam Hussein's statue was toppled on 9 April 2003 as millions watched on TV.

        Chanting "No to America" and "No to the occupiers", they pulled down and burned effigies of Saddam Hussein, US President George W Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

        Details of the attack near Latifiya are still sketchy, with conflicting accounts of how the soldiers died.

        Apparently, they make no distinction between Bu$h, Blair and Hussein. ..."birds of a feather..."
