Tony Blair And
Agree With

Mark Alexander at A New Dark Age Is Dawning, sent an email with a link to an article about how Tony Blair thinks the Koran was a forward thinking book.

I say, it's time for Tony Blair to go.

Little Green Footballs says Afghani President Hamid Karzai is intervening in the case of Ahmad Rahman, the "apostate" who is on trial and under threat of beheading for becoming a Christian.

It seems the international uproar has caused Karzai to put a stop to the trial.


Afghani clerics, however, are blaming the cessation of the proceedings on the Jews.

In a way, they are right. The Jews were chosen by God to carry the Law forward through time. Because of them, the Judeo-Christian roots of Western Civilization grew mighty.

So, yes, this time I agree with the Islamofascists. It's the Jews fault.

Harvard Paper Alleging
Jews Control U.S.
May Have Origins
In Hate Sites

From the New York Sun:

WASHINGTON - A prominent Harvard law professor, Alan Dershowitz, is alleging that the authors of a Harvard Kennedy School paper about the "Israel lobby," one of which is the Kennedy School's academic dean, culled sections of the paper from neo-Nazi and other anti-Israel hate Web sites.

"What we're discovering first of all is that the quotes that they use are not only wrenched out of context, but they are the common quotes that appear on hate sites," Mr. Dershowitz, who is identified in the paper as part of the "lobby," told The New York Sun yesterday.

"The wrenching out of context is done by the hate sites,and then [the authors] cite them to the original sources, in order to disguise the fact that they've gotten them from hate sites."

The paper, "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy," was written by the Kennedy School's Stephen Walt and a political science professor and the codirector of the Program on International Security Policy at the University of Chicago, John Mearsheimer, and published by the Kennedy School.

In the 83-page "working paper," the professors suggest that a vast network of journalists, think tanks, lobbyists, and largely Jewish officials have seized the foreign policy debate and manipulated America to invade Iraq.

The paper, the law professor said, was "simply a compilation of hateful paragraphs lifted from other sources and given academic imprimatur." Mr. Dershowitz said that he and his research assistants were currently working on a comparative chart showing the parallelism between parts of the Walt-Mearsheimer paper and quotes available on neo-Nazi Web sites.

While Mr. Dershowitz stressed that the comparison project was a "work in progress," one particularly noticeable example of the authors' alleged culling from hate sites was found in the Walt-Mearsheimer paper's use of a quote from a former executive editor of the New York Times, Max Frankel.

Under the section "Manipulating the Media," on pages 19 and 20 of the paper, Messrs. Walt and Mearsheimer write: "In his memoirs, for example, former Times executive editor Max Frankel acknowledged the impact his own pro-Israel attitude had on his editorial choices. In his words: 'I was much more deeply devoted to Israel than I dared to assert.' He goes on: 'Fortified by my knowledge of Israel and my friendships there, I myself wrote most of our Middle East commentaries. As more Arab than Jewish readers recognized, I wrote them from a pro-Israel perspective.'" The footnote cites Mr. Frankel's 560-page book, "The Times of My Life and My Life with the Times," published in 1999.

Yet the Frankel quote used by Messrs. Mearsheimer and Walt, Mr. Dershowitz said, is nearly identical to the quote used by a neo-Nazi Web site in its own take on Jewish press influence, "Jewish Influence in the Mass Media." The document, posted on, quotes more extensively from the same section in Mr. Frankel's memoir.

I SAW the second-best minds of my not-so-Great Generation destroyed by Bush Derangement Syndrome, pasty, paunchy, tenured, unelectable, and not looking too sharp naked,

bullshitting themselves through the African-American streets at cocktail hour looking for a Prozac refill,

aging hair-plugged hipsters burning for their ancient political connection to the White House through the machinations of moonbats,

who warred on poverty and Halliburton's Wal-Mart and bulbous-eyed and still high from some bad acid in 1968 set up no-smoking zones on tobacco farms in the unnatural darkness of Darwinistic delusions floating a few more half-baked secular notions like "Let's all worship zero!",

who bared their withered breasts and, he or she, bleated their vaginas' mawkish monologues to John Kennedy's ghost under the capitol dome and french-kissed Mohammedan agents in the gore-drenched redrum rooms of Guantanamo,

who passed gas and on into universities with radiant cool eyes hallucinating President Al Gore and Vice-President Noam Chomsky envisioning world peace among the masters of war and stayed on and stayed on and stayed on sucking off the great teat of academe in upaid student loans and over-paid professorial positions the better to molest the minds of children for decades with every third year off for bad behavior,

The New York Times
On The Afghani
"Apostate" Case

It seems like the even New York Times is up to speed on Freedom of Religion:

"The case is more than deeply troubling, it's barbaric," wrote the New York Times. "If Afghanistan wants to return to the Taliban days, it can do so without the help of the United States."

Of course, this could simply be another attempt by the Times to undermine the efforts to change the course of history in the Middle East. Because all previous evidence would seem to point to the idea that the New York Times would rather that Muslims in the ME continue to live in the Middle Ages.


Well, we've been looking for the appearence of the rare and coveted Moderate Muslim, and it seems ABC News has found one for us. And he's speaking out on the Afghani Apostate who is being threatened with death:

“Rejecting Islam is insulting God. We will not allow God to be humiliated. This man must die,” said cleric Abdul Raoulf, who is considered a moderate and was jailed three times for opposing the Taliban before the hard-line regime was ousted in 2001.

Well, it's good to know that the Moderates are finally sticking their head out in the sun and looking around. Spring should soon be here.

The Jewish Left
Hates Christians
While Ignoring

The Rise Of
The New Anti-Semitism

From Front Page Magazine:

One thing must be noted at the outset – Not only is there nothing authentically Jewish about the agenda of the Jewish Left – It is, in fact, anti-Jewish in every detail. It rejects Torah-based morality, sanctions Muslim and left-wing anti-Semitism and champions causes that would lead to the extinction of the Jewish people – not to mention the end of civilization.

OK, now I’ll tell you what I really think.

Though they occasionally try to justify themselves with vague references to what they call "Jewish tradition" – and often include in their ranks those to whom the title "rabbi" is misapplied – there is nothing remotely Jewish about their worldview.

By Jewish left, I mean those occupying the modest territory to the left of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and Reform Judaism’s Religious Action Center.

Which brings me to an article in the influential Jewish Forward by E. J. Kessler, published on March 17th ("Activists Prepare for New Church-State Battle").

The Forward quotes me on the upcoming War On Christians Conference (March 27-28), where I’ll be speaking on a panel called – "Jews Confront The War On Christians," along with Rabbi Aryeh Spero, Michael Horowitz (a Hudson Institute scholar), and Joseph Ben Ami of the Institute for Canadian Values.

For an opposing point of view, the Forward presented a website called Jews on First! – whose self-proclaimed mission is to "expose the intimidation" tactics of "right-wing Christian fundamentalists." (As opposed to middle-of-the-road Christian fundamentalists? But then Jewish leftists have always been big on verbal overkill.)

The Forward says Jews on First! (love that exclamation point) was formed to "expose and counter the people at the March 27-28 conference." The site is the joint project of Jane Hunter ("a one-time Pacifica Radio journalist and longtime leftist organizer") and Rabbi Chaim Dov Beliak.

Point of information: California-based Pacifica Radio makes the rest of Public Radio look like the Rush Limbaugh Show. In June of 2003, Pacifica’s KPFK-FM in Los Angeles hosted a 32-hour marathon by one Dr. Kwanku Person-Lynn (could I make up something like this?) called "African Mental Liberation Weekend."

Among other liberating factoids, Person-Lynn claimed Jews ran the slave trade and that Jews and white gentiles were "the pale horse (of Revelation) with Death as its rider and Hell close behind" – probably not intended as a compliment. These reflections were interspersed with pre-recorded ravings of the always informative Louis ("Judaism is a gutter religion") Farrakhan.

How proud Ms. Hunter must be of her association with Pacifica. And what excellent credentials for putting oneself forward as a defender of the Jewish people.

Jews on First! and its allies – Tikkun Magazine, Michael Lerner, Noam Chomsky, Barbra Streisand, Ed Asner, etc. – might be called the Left’s kvetching amen corner.

The site warns of the "intimidation of judges by Christian fundamentalists." By "intimidation" it means – criticism, analysis, reform proposals – really, anything other then acting like a puppy that wants its belly rubbed, in the face of judicial assaults on representative government.

Among other smears, Jews On First! accuses Focus on the Family of "an anti-Semitic attack on (a) federal appeals judge."

Focus is headed by Dr. James Dobson (who would bleed for Israel, if it came to it). The anti-Semitic outrage in question? The February issue of the organization’s Citizen magazine contains a cover story on Appeals Court Judge Stephen Reinhardt (think Ruth Bader Ginsburg on crack cocaine), who, in a recent ruling, said parental rights stop at the school house door. Reinhardt also wants to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance.

According to Jews On First!, the Focus publication "unnecessarily called attention to the fact that Judge Reinhardt is Jewish in a way we find offensively anti-Semitic." (To wit: It interviewed his ex-wife, who observed that Reinhardt "thinks about his Jewish heritage a lot.")

Oh, no, say it ain’t so!

How I wish all of the long, bloody, history of Jew-hatred amounted to no more than this. Imagine the stereotypical Nazi from central casting in a bad B-movie, telling his victim: "Ve haf vays of unnecessarily calling attention to the fact that you are Jewish." Not exactly "Schindler’s List" stuff.

The site also denounces another stalwart friend of Israel, Pat Robertson, for calling Islam "satanic."

Now, let’s see:

The imam who’s paid $76,600 a year to serve as a chaplain for New York City’s correctional system rails against Zionist control of the media;

French Muslims fire-bomb synagogues, and Jewish day schools;

a French Jew named Ilan Halimi is kidnapped and tortured to death by a Muslim street gang;
the president of Iran says Israel "should be wiped off the map;"

Saudi clerics preach the annihilation of Jews (calling us "the descendants of pigs and apes");
Egyptian television serializes a dramatization of "The Protocols of The Elders of Zion";

Syrian President Basher al-Assad told Pope John Paul II that Jews "try to kill all principles of divine faiths with the same mentality of betraying Jesus Christ and torturing Him";


the party that constitutes the new government of the Palestinian Authority boasts that its minions drink the blood of Jews.

...And Jewish leftists run around denouncing Pat Robertson for saying mean things about the religion that introduced "jihad" into our political vocabulary?

At least the Nazis hated Jews for the right reason: because they perceived authentic Judaism as the principal moral force opposed to their values. The Jewish Left hates Christian conservatives for upholding Jewish values. It’s almost funny – in a sick sort of way.

News Executives
Are Allowed
To Have
Their Own Opinions

Drudge has the story of John Green, an ABC News Exec who sent out personal emails criticizing Bush:

A top producer at ABC NEWS declared "Bush makes me sick" in an email obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.

John Green, currently executive producer of the weekend edition of GOOD MORNING AMERICA, unloaded on the president in an ABC company email obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.

"If he uses the 'mixed messages' line one more time, I'm going to puke," Green complained. The blunt comments by Green, along with other emails obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT, further reveal the inner workings of the nation's news outlets.

A friend of Green's at ABC says Green is mortified by the email. "John feels so badly about this email. He is a straight shooter and great producer who is always fair. That said, he deeply regrets the sentiment expressed in the email and the embarrassment it causes ABC News."

This is interesting, but it isn't surprising, is it? We know the media doesn't like the President. They tell us everyday.

When they lie in their stories, and try to pass off editorial content as news, it is an abuse of their position. However, they are human beings (believe it or not), and, as such, they are entitled to their own personal opinions.

Al Jazeera Is
Reporting Better Than
The Western Media

Yesterday, CAIR came out stronger than Bush against the Afghani apostasy prosecution and today this positive article from Al Jazeera:

Iraqi marriages defy civil war spectre

By Ahmed Janabi above is right next to the asp:img closing tag with
Thursday 23 March 2006, 11:06 Makka Time, 8:06 GMT

Despite widespread speculation at home and abroad that Iraq is on the verge of civil war, couples from different backgrounds have been defying the theory by marriage.

Young men and women – as was the case before the US-led invasion three years ago - from different ethnic, religious and sectarian backgrounds still flock to the civil courts every morning for marriage contracts.

Sahira Abd al-Karim, a civil lawyer in Baghdad, confirmed to that Iraqis from different backgrounds are still marrying each other.

"Sectarianism is something shameful among Iraqis, especially the middle class," she said. "As a lawyer in the civil courts in Baghdad I have seen Sunni marrying Shia, Arab marrying a Kurd.

The weaknesses of the West's belief in it's own defining principles are brought out by the stark contrast between the reality our enemies readily acknowledge and the dark fantasies, and weak assertions, of our own leaders.

We ought to be ashamed of ourselves that we don't know well enough who we are, so that our enemies are more able to acknowledge reality than we are.

I know you're gonna think I'm making shit up, but there is a Hasidic Reggae singer named Matisyahu, and he kicks ass.

I heard this tune on the radio the other day called King Without A Crown, so I asked some of the younger people at work if they had ever heard the tune. Must have tripped them out to have the suit guy come in to the "plant" and start asking about the tune on "their" station. Little do they know about me.


Anyway, this one 19 year old kid told me the band is called Matisyahu. I told him, "Wow, that sounds like a Hebrew word."

Turns out I was right.

Dude is a real life Hebrew-spouting hardcore reggae-toasting singer.

Check out his lyrics:

What's this feeling?
My love will rip a hole in the ceiling
Givin' myself to you from the essence of my being
Sing to my God all these songs of love and healing
Want Meshiach (the Messiah) now so it's time we start revealing
You're all that I have and you're all that I need
Each and every day I pray to get to know you please
I want to be close to you, yes
I'm so hungry
You're like water for my soul when it gets thirsty
Without you there's no me
You're the air that I breathe
Sometimes the world is dark and I just can't see
With these demons surround all around to bring me down to negativity
But I believe, yes I believe, I said I believe
I'll stand on my own two feet
Won't be brought down on one knee
Fight with all of my might and get these demons to flee

Hashem's rays fire blaze burn bright and I believe
Out of darkness comes light, twilight unto the heights
Crown Heights burnin' up all through the twilight
Said, thank you to my God, now I finally got it right
And I'll fight with all of my heart, and all a' my soul, and all a' my might

Let the blessings come down
Strip away the layers and reveal your soul
Got to give yourself up and then you become whole
You're a slave to yourself and you don't even know

You want to live the fast life but your brain moves slow
If you're trying to stay high then you're bound to stay low
You want God but you can't deflate your ego
If you're already there then there's nowhere to go

Ask Hashem for mercy and he'll throw you a rope
You're looking for help from God you say he couldn't be found
Looking up to the sky and searchin' beneath the ground
Like a King without his Crown
Yes, I wanna get down
A King without his Crown
Yes, you keep fallin' down

Dude's on fire.

Oh, For God's Sake

A St. Louis air personality had a slip of the tongue, and his politically-correct boss fires him:

A radio personality at 550 KTRS was fired on the spot this morning after using the word “coon” on the air in a conversation about Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Dave Lenihan was dismissed after what he called an inadvertent slip of the tongue. Within 20 minutes, station CEO Tim Dorsey apologized on the air to listeners and announced that Lenihan, who had been with the station for less than two weeks, had been let go.

“I don’t know what was in Mr. Lenihan’s mind,” Dorsey said in an interview. “I know what I heard. I know it was reprehensible.”

Lenihan’s comment was made during a discussion about Rice’s credentials to become commissioner of the National Football League, a topic that has been fodder for sports talk radio since the current commissioner announced he would retire later this year.

Lenihan was listing what assets Rice could bring to the league, including her tenure as a top academic officer at Stanford University and the fact that she is African-American.

“She’s just got a patent resume, of somebody that’s got such serious skill,” Linehan said on the air. “She loves football, she’s African-American, which would kind of be a big coon, a big coon – oh my God, I am totally, totally, totally, totally, totally sorry for that, OK? I didn’t mean that. That was just a slip of the tongue.”

Lenihan later said he meant to use the word "coup."

Reached at home, Lenihan said he was still trying to figure out what happened, and was drafting a letter of apology to Rice.

"I was trying to say 'quite a coup' but it came out 'coon,"' he said. "I caught myself and apologized. It wasn't anything I was meaning to say. I never use that word.

"I think she's a fantastic woman. I was even talking about if she ran for president, I'd work on her campaign."

It's very clear to me what happened here. The words "coup" and "boon" got crossed in his head.

The technical term for that is Brain Fart.

This guy should be given his job back.

Considers Hamas
A "Partner"

Yes, it's true. They made an official announcement and everything.

Considering Hamas' stated goal is to kill Jews, I guess we can safely assume Switzerland is once again angling for some of that dead-Jew cash.

Painting by Edvard Munch
Song by Jude

Lover come and set me free from my restraint
Take the rags away that bind me
Stare me down and cut me deeply to the bone
Give me every tooth and blind me

You are Madonna
You're lady divine
Part Mother Theresa
Ad my Valentine
Some man's pariah
And a slippery slope
But, to me, you are my fire
And I fly to my home

NATO Ready
To Help UN
In The Sudan

Just this morning I was complaining about how the worl has been ignoring the genocide that the Arab government of the Sudan has been enacting on its black citizens. Well, apparently, that is about to come to an end:

NATO Ready to Help U.N. in Darfur AP NATO is prepared to support a U.N. force in the Darfur region of Sudan, the alliance's secretary-general told President Bush in a White House visit on Monday.


North Korea Says
It Is Capable
Of A Pre-Emptive
Nuke Strike
Against U.S.

"I'm so ronery."

Is this a threat, or just a case of a nation suffering from Tourette's Syndrome?

North Korea suggested Tuesday it had the ability to launch a pre- emptive attack on the United States, according to the North's official news agency. A Foreign Ministry spokesman said the North had built atomic weapons to counter the U.S. nuclear threat.

"As we declared, our strong revolutionary might put in place all measures to counter possible U.S. pre-emptive strike," the spokesman said, according to the Korean Central News Agency. "Pre-emptive strike is not the monopoly of the United States."

Last week, the communist country warned that it had the right to launch a pre-emptive strike, saying it would strengthen its war footing before joint South Korea-U.S. military exercises scheduled for this weekend.

Why Is The Media Silent
On Muslim Crimes
Against Humanity?

He was tortured for weeks in an apartment in Paris. Neighbors came by to watch and help. The BBC worked hard to avoid using the word Muslim:

Like many news junkies, I've noticed that stories putting Muslims in a bad light tend to be sketchy and underreported. A minor example is this comment by the head Muslim chaplain of New York City's prisons: "The greatest terrorists in the world occupy the White House." In Manhattan, remarks like that are nearly as conventional as talk about the weather, so the controversy was fairly small.

It might have been larger if the media had shown any interest in other points the imam made. For instance that Muslim prisoners are being tortured in Manhattan, and that Muslims must be "hard against the kaffir" (i.e., nasty to infidels), which presumably city employees are not paid to recommend. (By the way, why are clergymen city employees at all?)

A much bigger example is the misleadingly low-key reporting of the Ilan Halimi murder in Paris. We now know that Halimi was killed as a classic expression of Jew hatred. But with so much evasiveness and misdirection by police, government and press, it took a month to get that fact clearly on the table. Halimi, a cell phone salesman, was kidnapped and held for ransom by a mostly Muslim gang. He was horrifically tortured for three weeks, then slain. From time to time, neighbors had come to watch the torture or to participate in it. Nobody called the gendarmes.
At first the government and the press presented this story as a straightforward kidnapping for ransom. A spokesman said Jewishness may have played a role simply because the kidnappers thought Jews were rich. AP and UPI, in feeds to the United States, barely mentioned the possibility of anti-Semitism. After arrests were made, the BBC worked hard to avoid using the word "Muslim," though verses from the Quran were recited during the torture.

The Los Angeles Times account of Feb. 28 shows how hard candor can be. It reported that the gang made hundreds of abusive phone calls to Jews and had systematically tried to kidnap Jews. But the reporters wrote this: "Rather than a premeditated anti-Semitic murder, it seems a more complex product of criminality and dysfunction in the narrow world of thug culture: a poisonous mentality that designates Jews as enemies along with other faces of 'outsiders.'"
Oh, please. If whites had tortured and killed a black man, I doubt that reporters would be carrying on about how complex and unpremeditated it all was. They would just say it was a lynching.

In an excellent article last week, Colin Nickerson of The Boston Globe said the crime was being attributed to a "predominantly Muslim youth gang" notorious for "virulent anti-Semitism." The gang's taunting phone calls to Halimi's father were filled with anti-Semitic slurs and a rabbi had been told, "We have a Jew." The Globe said hatred of Jews is now a hallmark of what's cool in France, even among young immigrants from non-Muslim nations. Very strong article. No dancing around, just good reporting.

Governments and the media often avoid calling terrorism by its proper name. Presumably the idea is to calm the public and avoid embarrassing Muslims. It took nine months for the FBI and the government to admit that the attack on L.A. airport in 2002 was a terrorist operation. We had been told that personal reasons might explain why a pro-Palestinian gunman, who openly admitted the desire to kill civilians, would kill two people at an El Al counter.

The same verbal dance took place recently when an Iranian student rented a large van and tried to run down and kill as many students as possible in North Carolina. He said he was attempting to "avenge the deaths of Muslims around the world." But the university tried desperately to avoid the obvious T-word.

Tony Blankley wrote a Washington Times column, March 8, on the underreporting of Muslim violence. He said British politicians tell him there is increasing radical Muslim street violence, explicitly motivated by radical Islam, but not reported or characterized as such. Blankley said rioting Moroccan youths in Antwerp went on a rampage, beating up reporters and destroying cars, but police were instructed not to arrest or stop them. A database search shows little reporting on Antwerp riots.

The scary riots in Australia last December, pitting Lebanese immigrants against native whites, were well-covered. But nobody seems quite sure that we are getting the full story about other serious disturbances. From time to time the Internet carries reports of riots that don't make the newspapers, but they are mostly uncheckable.

Suppressing news, whether out of multicultural deference or fear, is a perilous business. We can't know how to react to upheavals if we aren't told about them.

Another good question is why has the media focused so much attention on the "Middle East Conflict" between the Palestinians and the Jews, (which has, of course, resulted in thousands of deaths over the past forty years), while ignoring the fact that the Arab government of Sudan has systematically killed over two million black Africans over the past twenty years.

They started with the black Christians.

Then, they killed the black animists.

Then, when they started to run out of Christians and Animists, they began killing the black Sufi Muslim, because Sufism is the one sect of Islam that is peaceful; that preaches love instead of Jihad.

To this date, the Arab government of Sudan has not gone after Arabs.

But, the media is silent. So silent that I bet many of the readers of conservative blogs don't even know the truth.

Actor Charlie Sheen
Questions Official
9/11 Story

Boy, that Charlie Sheen is really thinking, all gears cranking, gaskets blowing, steam spewing; I hope he doesn't hurt himself, or anyone unlucky enough to be standing near him:

Speaking to The Alex Jones Show on the GCN Radio Network, the star of current hit comedy show Two and a Half Men and dozens of movies including Platoon and Young Guns, Sheen elaborated on why he had problems believing the government's version of events.

Sheen agreed that the biggest conspiracy theory was put out by the government itself and prefaced his argument by quoting Theodore Roosevelt in stating, "That we are to stand by the President right or wrong is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."

"We're not the conspiracy theorists on this particular issue," said Sheen.

"It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions."

Sheen described the climate of acceptance for serious discussion about 9/11 as being far more fertile than it was a couple of years ago.

"It feels like from the people I talk to in and around my circles, it seems like the worm is turning."

Sheen described his immediate skepticism regarding the official reason for the collapse of the twin towers and building 7 on the day of 9/11.

"I was up early and we were gonna do a pre-shoot on Spin City, the show I used to do, I was watching the news and the north tower was burning. I saw the south tower hit live, that famous wide shot where it disappears behind the building and then we see the tremendous fireball."

"There was a feeling, it just didn't look any commercial jetliner I've flown on any time in my life and then when the buildings came down later on that day I said to my brother 'call me insane, but did it sorta look like those buildings came down in a controlled demolition'?"

This is a perfect example of actor as Critical Theorist. Charlie Sheen spends his life in an artificial world making movies, which are, of course, artificial themselves.

So, when the real world all of the sudden hits Charlie Sheen in the face, something just doesn't feel quite right.

Former Senior CIA operative, Gary Bernsten, says we could take out Iran's nuclear facilities with just two days of bombing:

Gary Berntsen, the former senior CIA operative who led the search for Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan in late 2001, believes the United States has the ability to easily destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities. He said the US could use bunker-buster bombs and other weapons to carry out the operation.

“We can dig those things out. We can destroy them,” he told The Jerusalem Post in an interview.

“We can take care of it in a couple of days with air strikes and they wouldn’t be able to stop us,” he added. “It wouldn’t be difficult to plan. They’d be some dangers but I think the United States can do it.” Berntsen, who left the CIA in June last year after more than 20 years of service, believes it will be difficult to persuade Iran to stop its nuclear program.

“I know the Iranians. I’ve worked against the Iranians for years. They are determined to get this no matter what, and they will lie and cheat and do whatever they have to do to get themselves a weapon,” he said.

Berntsen ruled out covert action because of the scale of Iran’s nuclear program. “This is a huge system of facilities they have. This is not going to be a small sort of engagement. We are probably going to have to destroy 30 facilities in 30 locations. Or at least 15,” he said.

Of course, what does he know?

But honestly, I can't imagine that Iran has had the money or the time to build redundant facilities. Therefore, one would presume that each facility houses something which is necessary to the completion of an Iranian nuclear weapon.

Therefore, it would seem to me that, for now, we only need to destroy some of the facilities.

And then, we will need to do it again every year or two, until another solution comes along.

How am I wrong on this? I hear so much bellyaching about how we can't do anything about this problem that it would seem that I must be wrong. But, I think my analysis here is logical.

Isn't it?

Bush Warns Iran:
We Will
Defend Israel

From Agence French Presse:

US President George W. Bush said he hoped to resolve the nuclear dispute with Iran with diplomacy, but warned Tehran he would "use military might" if necessary to defend Israel.

"The threat from Iran is, of course, their stated objective to destroy our strong ally Israel. That's a threat, a serious threat. It's a threat to world peace," the US president said after a speech defending the war in Iraq.

"I made it clear, and I'll make it clear again, that we will use military might to protect our ally Israel," said Bush, who was apparently referring to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's call for the destruction of Israel.

On the atomic dispute, Bush said he hoped "to solve this issue diplomatically" with a "united message" to Tehran from Washington, London, Paris, Berlin as well as Russia "hopefully" and China.

The message would be that "your desire to having a nuclear weapon is unacceptable," he said.

Bush really couuldn't make it any clearer than that.

Stunning Numbers
On Casualty Rates In
The War On Terror

Compare casualty rates during war under Bush with casualty rates during peacetime under Clinton:

Total military casualties under Clinton's first term from Jan 1993 to Dec 1996 inclusive, vs. Bush's first term from Jan 2001 to Dec 2004 (which includes the Iraq war) is interesting. Those numbers are Clinton's 4302 dead during peacetime vs. Bushe's [sic] 5187 dead during war.

In fact more people died under Clinton due to accidents, 2241, than died under Bush due to hostile action, 1102, during those periods.

Disaster In

Anyone who has read me over the past two years know that I am a supporter of George Bush and the War on Terror. I am a supporter of our attempt to spread Democracy within the Middle East. I am a believer in the idea that the desire for freedom beats within the breast of all human beings.

But, I am not a supporter of a Democracy project that allows this:

An Afghan man who allegedly converted from Islam to Christianity is being prosecuted in a Kabul court and could be sentenced to death, a judge said Sunday.

The defendant, Abdul Rahman, was arrested last month after his family went to the police and accused him of becoming a Christian, Judge Ansarullah Mawlavezada told Associated Press in an interview. Such a conversion would violate the country's Islamic laws.

Rahman, who is believed to be 41, was charged with rejecting Islam when his trial started last week, the judge said.

During the hearing, the defendant allegedly confessed that he converted from Islam to Christianity 16 years ago when he was 25 and working as a medical aid worker for Afghan refugees in neighboring Pakistan, Mawlavezada said.

Afghanistan's constitution is based on Shariah law, which states that any Muslim who rejects their religion should be sentenced to death.

"We are not against any particular religion in the world. But in Afghanistan, this sort of thing is against the law," the judge said. "It is an attack on Islam. ... The prosecutor is asking for the death penalty."

In the aftermath of WWII, we banned aspects of the Japanese state relgion; Shinto Buddhism. No longer would we allow the Japanese people to teach that the Emperor was God. No longer would we allow the cultivation of Kamikaze warriors.

Why are we allowing this? The Afghans don't have the right to do this, no matter what law they voted into place.

I've said it before and I will now say it again. Mob rule democracy is not a Constitutional Democratic Republic.

What you have going on in Afghanistan, apparently, is a group of humans, having been infantilized and enslaved by a religious ideology over the course of centuries, have now voted their slave masters into power, and are now carrying out their self-loathing as government.

That we are allowing this is the equivalent of participating in it. It is an abuse of human rights, if we don't make sure these things no longer happen, then our war will have been a colossal waste of money and blood.
