    Join you there in your wishes. The way things are shaping up though one cannot simply resist voicing concern or getting one's dander up.

    With two more Americans killed in Afghanistan today crossing the 2000th tragic mark, Gen.Mullen is rightly "mad as hell".
    A senseless , directionless, going nowhere misadventure. And with conservatively estimated 20'000 Afghan civilian deaths I do not think that Afghans are too happy either. So where does that lead to??

    @saywhat:
    Where have you been?
    We've missed you.
    I read about our 2000th loss.
    I want our troops home now, not 2014!
    I don't think *anyone* is happy with the situation...
    Too much bloodshed, minimal results.

    Now something interesting I found on youTube.
    While Netanyahu made himself a laughing stock of the world at the UN session with his usual antics, yes that is the general reaction, Jewish Rabbis and other Israelis met with Ahmedinijad in N.York with another kind of sentiment. That video is banned for broadcast at American News Channels ,in Israel and Europe.
    Watch it.

    @Saywhat and Mary how do you look at these differing views on Aljazeera? Or what Israel people think? Or what the iranian people think? Please tell.

      The best practice is go al Jazeera's website, then go to Haaretz to read what they say about the same issue. Mull it over and make up your own mind. For pure comedy, try IRNA.

      @Mary @Obama Mama @Bombo

      No I caught this video on YouTube. Incidentally I do not watch Aljazeera or go to IRNA. I regularly read Haar'etz though. I reported what I caught on youTube for you folks. We are fond of labeling those that would rather seek the way of rationalism or do not conform to perceptions that we grew up with as " outcasts" etc.

    Hi everyone. Managed to purge my brain of various irritants with a concert last night. 3 hours of Rush awesomeness. Now lets see how long it takes to fill it back up again.

    Saywhat, other than IRNA (yes I read them from time to time to find out what they are saying), you are the first person I have heard describe Netanyahu as "making a laughing stock of himself". Maybe you also found a Venezuelan news site of which I was not previously aware, that used similar terminology. And no, most Western countries do not allow "banning" of news reports, what with protected free speech in most countries, but you can hang on to that word if it makes you happy. Maybe Western news organizations just don't think it's newsworthy when a few outcasts want to talk to Pres Dinnerjacket of Iran.

    Remember kids. Just because you read something on the internet doesn't make it true. Unless they said "String section vastly improves Rush performance of YYZ." THAT would be true.

    @Bombo- Rush in Edmonton? What is the truth? I guess it is in the eyes of the beholder who looks and can decypher all the Bullmalarky. The truth is out there.

    GOOD MONDAY MORNING ON THE FIRST DAY OF AN OUTSTANDING OCTOBER

    Three Aussie guys, Shane, Ricky and Jeff, were working on a high-rise building project in Wagga Wagga. Unfortunately, Shane falls off the scaffolding and is killed instantly.

    As the ambulance takes the body away, Ricky says, 'Someone should go and tell his wife.'
    Jeff says, 'OK, I'm pretty good at that sensitive stuff, I'll do it.'

    Two hours later, he comes back carrying a case of Fosters.

    Ricky says, 'Where did you get that, Jeff?'

    'Shane's wife gave it to me.'

    Ricky continues, 'That's unbelievable, you told the lady her husband was dead and she gave you the beer?'

    'Well not exactly,' Jeff said. 'When she answered the door, I said to her, "You must be Shane's widow."

    She said, 'No, I'm not a widow.'

    And I said, 'I'll bet you a case of Fosters you are.'

      Well they started with their moderation, so I guess you won't see what I posted.

    Rush in Edmonton, yes. When they hit your city later, I highly recommend it. Almost 60 years old and they can still play their own stuff, as complicated as it is.
