The Bushies are apparently spoiling for a fight with Iran:
U.S. troops raided an Iranian consulate in northern Iraq late Wednesday night and detained several people, Iran's main news agency reported today, prompting protests from Tehran just hours after President Bush pledged to crack down on the Islamic Republic's role in Iraqi violence.

Iran released news of the raid through its Islamic Republic News Agency in a dispatch that was broadly critical of Bush's plan to deploy about 21,500 more troops to Iraq.

The IRNA report said that U.S. forces entered the Iranian consulate in Irbil, in Iraq's Kurdish-dominated north, and seized computers, documents and other items. The report said five staff members were taken into custody.

The Iranian foreign ministry appealed to the Iraqi government to obtain the release of its personnel.

U.S. officials have not confirmed the raid, but did say that they had taken six people into custody in Irbil during the course of "routine security operations."

Coming to America: David Beckham!!!

Trump is right. Barbara Walters is a duplicitous wench. She now is pretending to just wuv Rosie O'Donnell. Earth to Babs: nobody loves Rosie O'Donnell.

And Trump ain't through, baby!

Meanwhile, two men got into a gun fight over ... wait for it ... the height of the late Godfather of Soul James Brown.
