The Wednesday Glooms

I’m irritated – American media outlets apparently can’t be bothered to discuss the retasking of troops to Afghanistan – I guess if it doesn’t involve the economy, no one cares……hells, The US fails to speak up on Pakistan’s truce with the Taliban (which I’m still wtf-ing….).

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, however, was cautious when speaking to reporters in Japan. She said Pakistan’s efforts still needed to be “thoroughly understood” before she could comment.
“Obviously, we believe that the activity by the extremists in Pakistan poses a direct threat to the government of Pakistan as well as to the security of the United States, Afghanistan and a number of other nations,” Clinton said.

None of which says Anything. Oh, in the spirit of not making a big deal out of it, apparently the troop deployment has gone from 10,000 up to 17,000 additional soldiers and marines.

Peanut recall expands – without much fanfare.

Dow Jones continues to drop so you can tell how well that “stimulus package” is going over.

GM and Chrysler asking for an ADDITIONAL 22 billion dollars which is the reward they deserve for ‘restructuring’ that equals reduced output and layoffs. Which is fewer jobs while at the same time preventing cars from getting any cheaper.
