A vehicle for venting on philosophy, religion, and the general state of things. Proprietor: C. W. Powell

If for no other reason, it would have been for the women of Iraq that the war should have been waged. America has done wrong in its history, for we are all sinners, but this one was right. But I still would rather we had not sent our girls to fight.

Janice Shaw Crouse on Iraq Women's Delegation on National Review Online: "The women expressed appreciation over and over again and talked with deep sorrow about the Iraqis who were executed, gassed, or mass murdered. They don't even want to think about the torture chambers and the unmarked mass graves documented by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and Pentagon files — 18 tons of documents consisting of five million pages of atrocities. For the women in the delegation, the stories of Saddam's brutality are all too true, as is the fact that women, especially, were targeted by the regime. "
