Israel May Move Some Settlements
It seems to me to be a stretch to go from "Saddam poses an imminent threat and has WMD in hand" this quote:

"Pressed to explain why his administration had asserted Saddam possessed weapons, when at best fragmentary evidence of programmes had been found, Mr Bush replied: 'So what's the difference? 'If he were to acquire weapons, he would be the danger,' he said in an interview with ABC News' Diane Sawyer."

what a suprise.... NOT!:

interesting. first phone to have MS Windows Smartphone OS. Wondering when Sprint will have one. They are such morons about Samsung and Sanyo phones though - I don't have alot of confidence. The one Sprint phone that would compete against this uses the Palm OS and is about $500 - way overpriced.
