Youths stand behind a fire after a demonstration in Rennes, western France, Tuesday, April 4, 2006. Hundreds of thousands of protesters marched through cities around France, hoping to make their biggest show of strength yet to demand the repeal of a job law that has divided the country, known as CPE, and which would make it easier for employers to fire young workers.

But, there was violence…..
Riot police officers chase youths after a demonstration in a street of Rennes, western France, Tuesday, April 4, 2006.
Protestors smash shop windows during a student demonstration against the First Job Contract (CPE) in Lille, northern France, April 4, 2006. French transport workers and teachers staged new strikes on Tuesday and students across the country gathered for street protests they hope will kill off the disputed CPE, a youth hire-and-fire law.
Violence over this CPE First Job Contract law is ridiculous. These demonstrations will ruin France’s tourism and business climate.
But, perhaps that is what the unions and socialists desire……

A test launch of Iran’s new missile during the manoeuvers along with the Gulf Sea and Sea of Oman, in March 2006. Iran said it successfully test-fired a new land-to-sea missile in Gulf war games that have aroused international concern amid rising tensions over its nuclear programme
ASSociated Press: Iran: Defenses Can Withstand Any Invasion
More bloviations from the Iranians about military breakthoughs and new technology. They seem to forget what the United States possesses:
And the delivery methods to affect the result……
From under the Sea:
From the Air:
From the United States mainland:
So, Flap is not too concerned with military CRAP TRASH TALK from Iran.
Can Iran block the Strait of Hormuz and disrupt the world oil flow. You bet. But, this action also cuts off a main source of their countries revenue and trade.
Iran would best to stand down their nuclear weapon program and develop peaceful nuclear power for their citizens.

Rick Perry participate in a news conference Monday, April 3, 2006, at TranStar, the region’s traffic-control center in Houston, to discuss future disaster response and the responsibility of local first responders with hurricane season approaching.
ASSociated Press: McCain: Not Enough Guest-Worker Backing
Well, Kennedy and McCain do not have enough votes (60 needed) to invoke cloture (end debate/filibuster) and that is how it should be. Their bill is not the prescription for solving the illegal immigration problem. There was an amnesty in 1986 and it made matters worse as will this bill.
There is also talk of a compromise revision called the “roots concept.”
However, there is conservative opposition.
No compromise. Bill Frist should call up his bill and the Senate should approve it and move on.
Stay tuned as the Senate rushes to pass something on illegal immigration.
But, don’t count on much……
