Condi Rice told the Senate that the "time for diplomacy is now." Give me a break. The time for diplomacy was two years ago.Friedman's piece primarily concerns the true nature of the conflict in Iraq today. While the US may have originally intended that removing Saddam was about premptive removal of WMDs, about retribution for violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1441, or, as Scott McClellan hammered home in a recent White House press briefing, about simple neccessity in a post-September 11th world, the conflict has now come to be a fight between Iraqis who are willing to embrace modernity and those Muslims who refuse modernity in favor of a violent, atavistic, insular society. This interpretation explains why Iraqi insurgents have recently turned toward attacking and intimidating voting officials and potential voters.

It seems obvious to me that the woman in that image has been pasted in. Really, it seems to me that the web design crew at NetBank ought to be embarassed of how bad that image is.
Why is she looking at the camara and he not?
Best of all, notice how the golf flag in the background is out, indicating the presence of wind, yet neither of the models' hair shows an indication of a breeze.
Maybe I should quit my whining and be happy that NetBank hires cheap, hack web designers so that they can pay better interest rates.
