Movie

Just watched Darkness Falls (Sony) and would have to say it was a great movie. I've not read what others (experts and what not) have written about it, but I found the plot good, the action scary and the characters 'believable'.

If you like scary movies, this is a good one to watch. I'll not post on what it's about to save you any spoilers (if you follow the link above, you'll get the main site for it), but do not watch this alone if you get scared easily.

Falen: If you read this one, make sure you are not staying home alone after watching this movie, I know how much movies get to you and this one would do it hard.

House OK's Plan to Withdraw US Troops(retreat)
WASHINGTON - The Iraqi government is achieving only spotty military and political progress, the Bush administration conceded Thursday in an assessment that war critics quickly seized on as confirmation of their dire warnings. Within hours, the House voted to withdraw U.S. troops by spring.

The House measure passed 223-201 in the Democratic-controlled chamber despite a veto threat from President Bush, who has ruled out any change in war policy before September.

"The security situation in Iraq remains complex and extremely challenging," the administration report concluded. The economic picture is uneven, it added, and the government has not yet enacted vital political reconciliation legislation.

As many as 80 suicide bombers per month cross into the country from Syria, said the interim assessment, which is to be followed by a fuller accounting in September from Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. military commander in the region.(link)

What was it the little engine kept saying? "I think I can, I think I can." Sounds like the Democratic approach to the war and losing it.
