        \_ you are most likely a troll.  But to those who know,
           what is the advantage of a digital scope?
           \_ Seems like a waste.  You really only need one good reticle,
              and once you learn to use it well it'll be more than
              sufficient.  For those who have the time/interest, there's
              a book by Maj. John Plaster called, "The Ultimate Sniper,"
              that has a chapter on choosing and using various reticles.

          his son's succession and for NK's stability.

Posted by Shermy On 04/14/2004 3:59:56 PM PDT Al Jazeera April 15, 2004 A deal between Iraqs rebellious Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and the US-led occupation authorities is said to be imminent. Abd al-karim al-Anzi, an envoy appointed by Sadr to lead negotiations aimed at averting bloodshed in the holy city of Najaf, said on Wednesday that a deal could be struck in the next 24 hours. I met US officials today and the talks were extremely positive, Anzi said. There was no immediate comment from the occupation authorities, who have threatened to either kill or capture Sadr.

Despite his spectacular victories in North Africa, Sicily, and Europe, he left a depressing paper trail of grotesqueries about blacks, Jews, Asians, Mexicans, womenand almost anyone outside his WASPish class. Most Americans know more about his two slapping incidents in Sicily than his famous sprint to Bastogne during the dark days of the Battle of the Bulge.

Produced by a joint effort between Democrat pollster Celinda Lake of Snell, Lake, Perry and Associates, and Republican pollster Ed Goeas of the Tarrance Group, it avoids the partisanship that sometimes can slip into the sampling methods of other polls. The partisanship can come out in the strategic analysis each does for the respective parties, although the spin presented is usually substantive.

The newly sanctioned companies include several Chinese Army owned firms, as well as companies in Russia, Belarus, the United Arab Emirates, North Korea and Taiwan.
