1 Sigh...... you've got to have the IQ of a *cowpat* to go anywhere near an Islamic country - *especially* those in North Africa.

2 Greetings:

A bunch of months ago, I channel surfed into a PBS documentary program entitled "Held Hostage". It was about the Islamaniacs' attack on an oil refinery in southern Algeria. The government promptly called out its anti-terrorist brigade and the filmmaker thought it important to make mention that the commanding general's "nom de guerre" was "The Eradicator".

Here's hoping he's still on the job.
