Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog
Public Corruption in Chester County, PA
I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

A Taliban and Al Qaeda controlled Pakistan?
The talk about a nuclear Iran make it appear as though Iran already has nuclear tipped missiles aimed at Israel. The reality is there is just a possibility that Iran may have nuclear weapons someday.
I think that Israeli politicians are crying wolf to get votes. While this worry is lavished on Iran the Taliban and Al Qaeda is rapidly gaining control in Pakistan. As the article below states Pakistan has 80 to 100 nuclear weapons. It also has and nuclear missiles and nuclear capable aircraft. What country do you think a Taliban controlled Pakistan would have as a bull’s eye?

Terror Creeps Into the Heartland
By NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF
It was the home of a Muslim religious teacher, but he was stockpiling more than copies of the Koran. His house blew up this month in a thunderous explosion that leveled much of his village and could be heard six miles away. Police reported that he was storing explosives, rockets, grenades and suicide vests.
But perhaps what was most dispiriting was that this arsenal, apparently intended for terror attacks, was not in the tribal areas in the northwest of Pakistan where the Taliban and Al Qaeda have long conducted operations. Rather this was in the southern part of Punjab, the Pakistani heartland.
