I am just coming down from a 4 day migraine. I had to go to the ER to get it knocked down enough that I will be able to manage it. I hope it stays down long enough for me to get some sleep.
My dog, Emma is doing better but she is really licking her incision and has it all red, She has a cone of shame around her neck but she has figured how to lick with it on. The dog is smarter than I am.
I found this news article on RT a little scary:
Iraq loses control of chemical weapons depot to ISIS militants. The Iraqi government has informed the United Nations that it has lost control of a former chemical weapons depot to Islamist insurgents affiliated with ISIS, or IS, and cannot carry out its obligations to destroy what’s stored in the compound.
“Bunker 13 had about 2,500 sarin-filled chemical rockets and 180 tons of the“very toxic chemical” sodium cyanide. Bunker 41, contained 2,000 empty artillery shells that were contaminated with mustard gas, more than 600 one-ton mustard containers holding residue, and severely contaminated construction material (RT News, 2014) .
Now I thought that the main reason we invaded the country, at least the main reason Bush and Cheney lied to us about, was to get rid of their chemical and nuclear weapons, which were never there. We all know that was all a lie. Why didn’t we do something about these chemicals in these bunkers while we were over there with troops and the manpower to destroy them ourselves rather than turning the problem over to a weak, untrustworthy puppet government?
Mean while Iraqi lawmakers are still debating over what kind of government to form in order give themselves the best opportunity to unite the country and strike back against the Islamic State militants (RT News, 2014).
Well that is it for tonight. My school is going good and I am getting use to doing everything how it is expected in graduate classes.
