Possible Timeline to Pull Out of Iraq: Immunity on the Table

Speaking on condition of anonymity, officials have revealed that ongoing talks will hopefully lead to a withdrawal of US troops by October 2010.

The proposed agreement calls for Americans to hand over parts of Baghdad’s Green Zone — where the U.S. Embassy is located — to the Iraqis by the end of 2008.

U.S. acceptance — even tentatively — of a specific timeline would represent a dramatic reversal of American policy in place since the war began in March 2003.

Both Iraqi and American officials agreed that the deal is not final and that a major unresolved issue is the U.S. demand for immunity for U.S. soldiers from prosecution under Iraqi law.

Young People Find Obama “Way Cooler” than McCain

This article falls into the “duh!” category.  I can’t imagine that anyone read the title of this article and exclaimed in disbelief.

“Obama’s big with the kids, everyone knows that,” said Tom Johnson, 21, of Norfolk, Va. “McCain — that guy’s not cool. I just can’t call McCain cool.”

Great Pain at the Gas Pumps

Perhaps no issue places our economy in a pinch and our foreign standing in peril, more than issues concerning oil. The price of a barrel of oil fluctuates, but consistently climbs as the downward fluctuation is always higher than the last low price.

Granted, gas prices at the pump are not going to go down quickly, but we do need to consider how we have found ourselves at the place where we are, so that we might evaluate a sound approach to the issue. Consider the following issues:

1) Primarily due to lack of tax incentives and stringent environmental regulations, we have not seen a new refinery built in the US in the last ten years. At the same time, a new refinery is built every two years in the Middle East.

Ron Paul to Announce Support for Presidential Candidate in September. Will not support John McCain.

Looks like we will be waiting to hear about who Ron is supporting until September. He did clearly state that he was simply not going to support John McCain. Of course, we knew that Ron would not be supporting John McCain considering they differ on nearly every issue.
