Second polio case in Swat
ISLAMABAD: A second young girl has tested positive for polio in Swat valley, where militants have warned against vaccinations, health officials said on Sunday.
They said security fears were preventing health workers from carrying out a new anti-polio campaign. A three-day polio vaccination campaign for children aged less than five years is scheduled to begin in the NWFP on Monday.
But the campaign will not be carried out in two areas of Swat Valley, Kabal and Matta, due to ‘uncertainty’ and deteriorating security in recent days, said Dr Abdul Waheed Khan, a senior provincial health official.
A local pro-Taliban cleric, Fazullah, has said that polio vaccinations are a Western conspiracy to make Muslim children infertile.

Hat Tip: United States Action
Jihadis share the same Luddite tendencies as the anti-technology of hippies and certain circles of the conspiracy nuts who oppose vaccination of children because they fear science.
Tell me again why I am to believe Islam is a Religion of Peace?

Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani was found not guilty of all charges today, and Gateway Pundit notes that 7 of 8 have now been cleared…despite the assurances of Congressman Murtha that they were guilty.
You can ask Congressman Murtha’s office when an apology will be forthcoming at 202-225-2065. Be nice to the people in the office.
Jack Murtha on the US Marines at Haditha:
“…they killed innocent civilians in cold blood…”
Congressman, do the right thing and apologize. We know you couldn’t help it because you are a Moonbat Democrat, and as such hate America, and believe the worst about the brave young men and women who selflessly serve their nation.

Twenty years ago today, Saddam Hussein killed about 5,000 people (75% of them women and children) in the worst chemical attack of his career.
Thankfully, despite the opposition of many Democrats (including Ron Paul), we were able to finally remove him from power after the 2003 Invasion of Iraq. We will never find out if he were capable of topping that figure, or exporting it to a city near you.
Gateway Pundit has a good article on the attack.
From ITN shortly after the attack.
In the belief that photos and video can tell the story of such horror better than words, I have included a few videos about the massacre that occurred 20 years ago today below.
You may download and watch a flash movie here, or read more about the attack.
