Post-Easter Reading

This is a couple of days after the fact because I COULD NOT PUBLISH MY BLOG ON BLOGGER LAST NIGHT. Anyway, after a refreshing Easter Weekend on a not-very-remote Pacific island with my favorite wife, I'm home to catch up on the 'sphere. Here we go with a bit of everything:

Roger L. Simon has been working with Claudia Rosett on the latest revelations coming down the
pipe from the Volker Commission, and it doesn't look good for the U.N. But then what does
these days?

Speaking of Oil-For-Food, here's the latest on Happy Jack Chirac. No-one can ever hope to
defend this miscreant and still claim integrity; the two are mutually exclusive. Just thinking
about him makes me want to take a shower.

On the other hand, Happy Jack and friends can no longer repress Iraqis with their greed, and
that's always Good News From Iraq.
In giving us Good News From Iraq Arthur Chrenkoff, James Taranto and Joe Katzman provide a service that shames the efforts of the left to portray Operation Iraqi Freedom as a quaaagmiiire and Iraqis as a bunch of losers.

Meanwhile, back at the WaPo, Paul Krugman once again shits his pants with this breathlessly bigoted declaration:"America isn't yet a place where liberal politicians, and even conservatives who aren't sufficiently hard-line, fear assassination. But unless moderates take a stand against the growing power of domestic extremists, it can happen here."

What poison.

Of course Krugman fails to identify his so-called "domestic extremists" and of course, until he does, his column is entirely without meaning and therefore without merit. As usual. Come on, Paul, make a play.

Recommended Reading: Power Line's John Hindraker weighs in with great force. If you don't read this, you haven't done your damned homework.

April 2 - Captain's Quarters asks, "How come Krugman hasn't written a word about the escalation of actual violence from the Left?"

Hushed Rape of Timor

Mark Dodd of the Weekend Australian, March 26, 2005, writes:

"With the UN battered by a series of allegations embroiling its Nobel Prize-winning peacekeepers in a web of global sexual misconduct, new details have emerged of widespread sexual abuse against the civilian population by the Jordanian soldiers in Oecussi."

Murderous Weasels For Democracy, Part Two: Exit Strategy

Steve Negus in Baghdad writes for The Financial Times website edition of Saturday Mar 26 2005 that Ba'aths and Sunnis continue to look for ways to enter the political arena in Iraq, without having to answer for the savagery and mayhem they have wrought. It seems they fear being targeted by Coalition and/or Iraqi Forces.

Gee, ya figure?

Adulterous Husband Uses Courts To Starve Disabled Wife To Death

It's Ann Coulter time: "Just once, we need an elected official to stand up to a clearly incorrect ruling by a court. Any incorrect ruling will do, but my vote is for a state court that has ordered a disabled woman to be starved to death at the request of her adulterous husband."


Good Friday

I enjoy reading David Frum's work. Today he has "some good news for Good Friday" and a good wish for us all.

Deconstructing the Hitlerian Slur

Victor Davis Hanson reminds us of the left's dive into the muck with their Hitlerian slur on George W. Bush. That the left seems satisfied with this tactic speaks volumes about their cravenness.

"...the one country (the U.S.) that is the most hospitable to Jews — is governed by a Hitler-like killer (Bush)."

That's their story and they're sticking to it.


Two Years Later, Part Two

I know how longingly my leftist Bro dreams of hearing Dubya apologize for all his crimes against anti-war sentiment, UN obstructionism, political opportunism, and Dan Rather, such atrocities as kidnapping, showering and grooming Saddam, forcing a nationwide election in Iraq even as bomb-strapped minutemen were stalking the streets... you know the drill.

There's just this one nagging problem: the heroic voices emanating from the very souls Bro and his fellow dreamers would have left to rot in hell without permission from the belligerent and double-dealing French and Germans to save them.

History is beginning to creep up on Bro's world view.

New York Times Declares Left Wing Insane

Get your own fine self over to Just One Minute and read Two Years Later.

Along with other much worse things, the NYT's observance of the second anniversary of Operation Iraqi Freedom contains a gem of Freudian slippage; after boring us with the the usual stream of hysterical accusations, the Times offers up its grande caveat:

"With all that said, even the fiercest critic of George Bush's foreign policy would be insane not to want these signs of hope [in the Middle East] to take root."

U.N. On Widespread Rape Scandal: "This is a problem in every mission around the world."

"Peacekeepers in several Liberian communities routinely engage in sex with girls, according to an internal U.N. letter obtained by The Washington Post. In the town of Gbarnga, peacekeepers were seen patronizing a club called Little Lagos, "where girls as young as 12 years of age are engaged in prostitution, forced into sex acts and sometimes photographed by U.N. peacekeepers in exchange for $10 or food or other commodities," according to the letter, which a representative of the U.N. Children's Fund (UNICEF) wrote Feb. 8 to the mission's second-ranking official."

It's time to declare the U.N. an abomination and take it down.

"...and two children."

Even if the crimes against the children at Beslan were not enough to make the world comprehend the black-hearted evil of the Islamofascist mind, surely some understanding must come from this.

These are the animals feted by Italian stupidity-fetishist Guilana Sgrena to real journalists on her way to getting herself kidnapped and a valiant saviour killed. These are the vermin to whom the left would give lawyers and the ACLU should they be captured and taken to Guantanamo Bay.

These are the deeds of Michael Moore's "Minutemen."

"...pro-active cyber-warfare..."

Man, I like that title. It gives me goosebumps because it says that we're going after the enemy's most ignored tactic and one of his last advantages. Not only that, it emanates from the blogosphere; it's a blog-clarion, or blarion. Did I just say that out loud?

Internet Haganah is a civilian community with a mission, which in this case is to shine light on the use of the internet by terrorist organizations and therefore disrupt same, while remaining faithful to the spirit and letter of the law.

Their Who We Are reads:
"Internet Haganah is a global open-source intelligence network dedicated to confronting internet use by Islamist terrorist organizations, their supporters, enablers and apologists. Internet Haganah is also a grass-roots activist organization which encourages businesses to not provide services to Islamic extremists."

Waiwaiwait: Denying services to Islamic extremists. . . You can do that?

Watch and Learn

Republicans are about to hold one of their own to account. Those on the left side of the aisle should pay attention and see how this is done.

The Strange Case of Giuliana Sgrena

The story - I beg your pardon; stories - of Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena are all over the internet. Retrieved from kidnappers in Iraq by truly valiant Italian agents in exchange for a ransom from her government, Sgrena's car came under fire from American troops bent on killing her because she is a journalist. Need I remind you that the first-degree murder of journalists is American policy in Iraq? You did see the memo from Eason Jordan, didn't you?

As for how anyone or anything made it through a fusillade of three to four hundred rounds of ammunition from anything American without being torn to shreds - well now we got ourselves a Genuine Mystery.

Dr. Rusty Shackleford at My Pet Jawa takes a detailed look.


Israelis didn't Kill Mohammed al-Durra

Power Line alerts us to THE FRENCH BLOOD LIBEL. Clifford May describes in the Washington Times how the death of 12-year-old Palestinian Mohammed al-Durra, which was part of the premise for Palestinian Chairman Yassir Arafat's Jewicidal orgy of terror, was possibly staged by a French-government-owned broadcasting corporation.

“What is the problem for which the European Union is the solution?”

New Sysiphus has done a marvellous service with an article entitled "The Loss of the U.K.: America's Emerging Foreign Policy Challenge." Read how the advent of the The United States Of Europe is designed to drive a lethal wedge between America and the United Kingdom.

Why We Must Understand Palestinian Terror

Little Green Footballs recommends this essay:
"A must read: Lee Harris’s dispassionate but utterly damning examination of one of the central problems of the Middle East: The Peculiar Institution: Understanding Why Palestinian Terror Is Different."


Jon Stewart Grows Brain

Bro and I spoke after the Beslan Massacre in which children were raped and murdered in a school overtaken by Islamoids. The horrors were off the scale. So sad.

Anyway, in a fit of enlightenment, he suggested that Dubya had perhaps been right about terrorists after all. I recall answering, "Gee, ya figure?" That later seemed sarcastic to me, until I returned to the fact that Dubya had been right. He has always judged by action, and Beslan was certainly our enemy's actions on parade.

And now look what has happened: according to James Taranto, Jon Stewart has grown a heart, a brain, da noive.

Rummy and the T-Word

Donald Rumsfeld is accused of approving methods of torture used in Iraq. This should be fun.

Dr. Rusty Shackleford at My Pet Jawa cites the enemy’s modus operandi as all the evidence needed to skewer its claims against the U.S. government of illegal torture, when in fact Rummy has spared their lives (no biggie; that's what the U.S. does) and given them the opportunity to challenge him in a U.S. court. It's called democracy and human rights. But these guys have one problem:

Dr. Rusty: "When you engage in military actions against the US you ought to be treated as an enemy. The last time I checked the Geneva Convention allowed captured non-uniformed combatants caught engaged in acts of sabotage to be put to death. Even when those combatants are domestic citizens."

Dare I say, "Especially?"

Yet Dubya has them in the Caribbean; now that's what I call a good sport.
