Iraqi Freedom Minute:June 11


  1. I figured that the total lack of MainScream Media coverage of Iraq meant that things must be going pretty well. This would seem to confirm that the new police and army institutions are gaining the expertise to take over for our servicemen.

  2. Iraq's flag colors are Black, White and Red.
    The colors for the banner of the tribe of Levy are the same.

    With them is the Urim and Thummim.

    No wonder it's been such an uphill climb to put that red precious stone into the Breastplate.

  3. Doug,
    Weren't those the things that Joseph Smith used to translate the Golden Plates? Who knew it was a Jewish thing?

  4. I'm not up to snuff on the Latterday Saints doctrine and history but I'm learning as much as I can about everything that is common gnaw-ledge to all the other Dogs.


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
