British Foreign Minster, Jack Straw calls for a final solution for israel? 

this version by the culture of death

Last week we voted in the UN Security Council for a resolution that condemns the killing of the Palestinian civilians in the Rafah city and calls Israel to live up with the rules of international law by refraining from demolishing Palestinian-owned homes, the British senior official pointed out.

He also hinted that the UK has backed Israeli Prime Minster Ariel Sharon’s withdrawal plan, on which Israel would dismantle some settlements in the Gaza Strip, however, the UK deemed that such withdrawal be carried out in coordination with the Palestinian National Authority.

FM Straw stressed that his country is committed to ensuring smooth Israeli withdrawal from Gaza as a first move, to be followed with similar major steps, leading eventually to a final solution based on the Road Map and the relevant United Nations’ resolutions.


VERSUS

this version in the scotsman

“There is a path set out to achieve that by withdrawal from occupied territories,” he said. “It has got to start somewhere.

“It was never going to happen all at once, overnight, so it always seemed to us that a proposal to withdraw from Gaza and to withdraw settlements from Gaza was something to be welcomed.

“I am very glad that this welcome was endorsed yesterday by the United Nations, European Union, Russian Federation and United States.”

He added: “We give our full support to the Quartet in its call for renewed efforts to reach a comprehensive ceasefire as a step towards the dismantlement of terror groups and infrastructure and renewed progress towards a negotiated final settlement through the Road Map.”



hmmm so do I detect someone changed his qoute?!

o why do I suppose the palistinians would rather hear the words final solution rather than final settelment... or did the scotsman polish and massage his qoute? hmmmm

savages dancing with human entrails. THE CULTURE OF DEATH 

im calling a spade a spade.

thier are evil peoples in the world, and worse than there being evil people is the inability of sanitized western culture having the stones to call evil, or an evil culture what it is,

EVIL.

well I know it when I see it. and they are it. they are the same people who danced in the streets on 911


hat tip to aarons rantblog which had this little bloody dance of death showcasing the vicious and ugly people who celibrate death.

This is the Enemy
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

May 30, 2004

[WARNING: The following contains graphic descriptions of violence.]

Nick Berg, an American from Philadelphia, was kidnapped and tortuously beheaded by Arabs in Iraq sometime in May. The murderers filmed the deed and proudly displayed the victim’s severed head.

After killing six Israeli soldiers in an attack on an armored vehicle in Gaza on May 11, the Arabs near the scene of the carnage gleefully held aloft human body parts in front of rolling cameras. One of the Arab terrorists was later interviewed on film with what appeared to be a human head in front of him.

The week before, after shooting at Tali Hatuel’s car, causing it to skid and stop, Arab terrorists walked over to the vehicle to finish the occupants off. They looked at the heavily pregnant mother and her four no-doubt frightened girls; the youngest was two years old. And then shot them all. At point-blank range. With sadistic satisfaction, they systematically murdered Tali Hatuel and her unborn son, as well as all of Tali’s daughters - Hila, age 11, Hadar, 9, Roni, 7, and two-year-old Meirav.

In Fallujah in March, crowds of townspeople dragged four American civilians out of their vehicles, shot or beat them to death, mutilated their bodies, dragged them through the streets, suspended them from a bridge and burned them.

And they danced and cheered.

With their children.

In Ramallah in 2000, two Israeli soldiers were kidnapped, beaten, stabbed countless times, had their eyes gouged out, and were literally disemboweled and dismembered by an Arab lynch mob.

The people - and I use the term loosely - who carried out the initial beatings threw one of the victims down to the waiting mob, where his face was further crushed with stones, feet, fists and even a heavy metal window frame. One Jew was set on fire and dragged along the street as Arab onlookers danced and cheered. Some of the butchers celebrated their crimes with the victims’ internal organs. One of the killers, famously captured on film, proudly displayed his blood-soaked hands to the cheering Ramallah crowd.

And it gets worse. In 2003, nearly two years later, Arab parents in Gaza cheered again when their little children dressed up as members of the Ramallah lynch mob, complete with hands painted blood red, for a kindergarten graduation ceremony.

According to a report by Dr. Michael Widlanski, an Israeli Arabic expert, the Voice of Palestine called the attack on the Hatuel girls “an act of heroic martyrdom”. The targeted children and their mother, the PA radio reported only as “five settlers”.

Among the participants at the funerals of the Hatuel family members was President of Israel Moshe Katzav. He said, “This day of blood will be engraved in our history. An earthquake has happened. No one in the world can stand apathetically by in the face of these acts by such evil people. Where are those who speak in the name of Allah?”

National Review contributing editor David Frum posed the same question in his May 12 “Diary” on NRO: “Where are the imams?” he asked.

Some of “those who speak in the name of Allah,” Mr. President, were busy sawing Nick Berg’s head from his body in Iraq. “Allah is great!” they shouted in triumphal glee as they killed their bound and helpless victim. The imams are in the mosques, Mr. Frum, waving swords and exhorting their followers to behead a Jew: “Allah willing, we will cut off his head! Oh Jews! Allah is great! Allah is great!” They are also in Saudi Arabian palaces, telling their subjects that they are 95% certain Zionists are behind Islamist terrorism. They are also writing for the Arab media, explaining that Jews are behind all the evil in the world. And they are even organizing soccer matches, Mr. President, honoring mass murderers.

This is the enemy. Don’t look away
.


I dont know about you the reader but I look at anyone who celibrates murdering little girls as a heroic act, rabid dogs. and the sooner we have all out war to defeat them the better.

a picture is worth a thousand words ~~the "UN" is a terrorist enabling organization. 

this from Melanie Phillips's Diary

UNWRA's Commissioner General Peter Hansen went ballistic when Israel claimed UN ambulances had been used to smuggle away the body parts of Israeli troops who had been blown up in Gaza. As the Jerusalem Post reported:

'UNWRA's commissioner general Peter Hansen is demanding Israel apologize for allegations made last week by defense minister Shaul Mofaz that UN ambulances had been used to transport IDF soldier body remains to terrorist strongholds, reported IBA news. Hansen said a letter requesting proof from the Israeli government had so far met with no reply. Accordingly, Mofaz has no reason to believe there is any truth at all to the extremely unfortunate accusation being made against UNRWA, said Hansen.'


what do we see there? oops its ARMED masked terrorists getting into a UN ambulance mr hanson you prick.


UPDATE: a.e.brain had this to say on the subject.

Why hasn't this footage been seen on TV?

"Why has there been no apology from the UN? Why has there been no investigation of a clearly documented War Crime of the gravest kind, the use of 'protected status' under the Law of Armed Conflict (Geneva Accords) for military purposes? This really is a Big Deal, as Israel can now quite legitimately target UN 'ambulances' as hostile vehicles. Unless the UNRWA does something about the situation, including bringing its own personnel to justice in front of a criminal tribunal, then it has been graphically and irrevocably tainted.

And in view of the explosive nature of the footage, why has it been supressed? No journalist who saw it could say it was un-newsworthy. It came from Reuters, not some anonymous and unknown source. This is at least as newsworthy as the Abu Ghraib photos, and even more spectacular. So why?"

Rubber tapper, 63, beheaded in South

The restive South took a turn for the worse yesterday as suspected Muslim militants decapitated a rubber-tapper and threatened to carry out more killings if security forces continued to arrest “innocent Muslims”.

Sieng Padkaew, 63, a resident of Narathiwat’s Sungai Padi district, was beheaded by an unknown number of assailants on his rubber plantation about two kilometres from his house in tambon Toh Daeng yesterday morning before dawn.

A typed note saying, “If you arrest innocent Malay, we will kill innocent Thai Buddhist”, was left on Sieng’s body, while his severed head was placed about 60 metres away on a nearby dirt road - apparently so people passing would see it.

Eyewitnesses said Somsri, Sieng’s wife, begged hysterically for her husband’s head to be sewn back on. They said the two were born in the area, had lived there all their lives, did not have any problems with anybody, and she had no idea why her husband was attacked.

an example of true torture related by an iraqi 

this was posted by blogger zayphar at "one of ours"



I won't forget the day when I saw one of Saddam's tanks crushing the heads of 40 She'at Iraqis who were among others arrested for no obvious reason in 1991. Their hands were tied and put on the street for the tank to pass over their heads. The words" No She'at after today" where written on that tank.

I was one of those people. My hands were tied to the back and a grenade was put between them and the safety pin removed. It was positioned in a way that it should explode if I was to make any move, and I was left a lone in a deserted area that was at least 5 Km. from any life. If it wasn't for the kindness of one of the soldiers who came back and rescued me, I would've certainly died soon.
Ihsan Al-Shimmari-Sweeden.

We lived our worst years under Saddam regime, a regime that many Arabs still believe in! We don't know why don't they leave us in peace, especially the Arab media that turns liberation into occupation and criminals into resistant. We, Iraqis, know the truth very well. The situation is much better now for the vast majority of Iraqis. Most of the people are government employees who used to get paid 4 or 6 thousand Iraqi dinars. Now the lowest salary is 100 thousand Iraqi Dinar. We feel free and we don't fear prisons and torture. The Arab media, as expected, made a huge fuss about the prisoners abuse in Abu-Gharib. Shame on them. Where were they when Saddam put explosives around a bunch of young men and blasted their bodies and they all saw that on TV? Where were they?
Saman-Iraq.

I had to leave Iraq because I didn't want to be one of Saddam's slaves. After so many years, I'm back to my country and I saw that people are not as nervous as they used to be. I saw hope in their eyes despite the security problems. All I have to say to our Arab brothers is,"We are practicing democracy. You keep enjoying dictatorship"

gun review 2 

the glock


this hardworking semi auto is the new backbone of many US police forces, taking over from the revolver. it is easy to master, safe, reliable, and one of the most loved and hated guns speaking purely in the looks department. but as far as functional reliability goes it has few peers. it has been sunk to the bottom of the ocean for months under salt water and still fired reliably. it has been lost in the sand and still fired, run over in muck, and still fired, basically it keeps firing under some of the harshest circumstances. they will shoot and shoot and it is virtually imposible to wear them out.

its available in a huge array of calibers and configurations, from 9mm to .357sig or 40 cal., 45 to 10mm it is easily cutomizeable, with many shops offering special packages. barrel venting, lasers, grip refinement, drop in items like plugs, guide rods, conversion kits to fire .22 cal for plinking fun and training, sights, slide releases, the list goes on and on. if you look hard you can usually find a glock at a reasonable price, 19 or 23's can sometimes be picked up for under 475 bucks.

my bottom line for owning and carrying a glock is the no worry reliability. I absolutely know when I need it, it will not fail me. mine is a model 19. thats a 9mm with a slightly shortened slide and grip for better concealability. I keep it ready with pre ban 15 round mags with the 2+ extension for 17 rounds in the mag and one in the chamber for a total of 18 rounds of high velocity ammo (corbon and blue glaser saftey slugs) if your a good shot and your "problem" needs more than 18 rounds your fucked.

one of the most innovative cutomizers for glocks is aro tek, I have bought some of thier drop in parts and they were flawless.

and a good site for in depth info on the glock family go to the glock faqs page with plenty of info on the glock & Aftermarket Parts & Accessories

belmont club reviews the real trouble with the media and thier sloppy unproffesionalism 

belmont club analysis


"The media inability to make sense of its own story and update the basic account based on new information has been highlighted in Belmont Club's The Wedding Party series. As a consequence, the Times was not even aware that it was refuting itself.

The problem with the media is it cannot accurately keep track of the facts. It is not institutionally equipped to grade the reliability of information brought to its front pages. It has no organized method of collaterally confirming stories based on sources that are unlikely to collude. It has no analysis cells to follow a story and continuously reevaluate the reliability of initial information based on subsequent developments.


Jason Van Steenwyk convincingly shows, by laying out the verbatim transcript of US Marine General James Mattis and coverage by the Globe and Mail, the Guardian, the New York Times, Reuters, Agence Presse France and the Independent how the basic fact of what Mattis said slipped through the toils of these famous newspapers. Mattis was being asked to comment on an attack on alleged wedding party on the Syrian border. His verbatim response was:

I can't...I've seen the pictures, but I can't...bad things happened. Generally...in Fallujah, I never saw a Marine hide behind a woman or a child or hold them in their house and fire out of the building. I don't have to apologize for the conduct of my Marines.

This sentence, first a refusal to comment, then a basic reaffirmation of faith in his men based on their conduct in Fallujah, was twisted into a cavalier dismissal of civilian casualties. The New York Times rendered Mattis as:

At a news conference in Falluja, west of Baghdad, he said that two dozen men of military age were among those killed. "Let's not be naive," he said. "Bad things happen in wars." "I don't have to apologize for the conduct of my men," he added.

The Independent has the least accurate rendition of all:

"These were more than two dozen military-age males. Let's not be naive," Major General James Mattis, commander of the US 1st Marine Division, said. But he had no explanation of where the dead women and children in the video came from. "I have not seen the pictures but bad things happen in wars," he said cryptically. "I don't have to apologize for the conduct of my men."

In the Independent's version, Mattis is quoted as saying he had not seen the pictures, but in the transcript he clearly says he has. The question clearly refers to the alleged attack on the supposed wedding party, but the words "I can't ... I've seen the pictures, but I can't" which clearly indicates a refusal to comment are omitted altogether.

This error did not creep into the accounts of the Times or the Independent or the other newspapers due to a reliance on some 'poisoned source' or a source 'with an agenda' which the Times regards as the fount of mischief. It came from a failure to consult the tape of the interview and a verbatim transcript available. As Jason Van Steenwyk puts it:

Essentially, it looks like they're quoting each other, or some apocryphal Q source material. They're not quoting General Mattis. They didn't even show up at the press conference, and they didn't bother to get a transcript or listen to the tape. But all these reporters are passing their crap off as if they were right from the source material.

The error in this specific case doesn't necessarily have to do with the "liberal bias" that is attributed to these news outlets. It stems directly and plainly from a very poor management of the factual source material. The incident Van Steenwyk describes illustrates the palimpsest-like phenomenon described in Belmont Club's The Wedding Party series, where facts of uncertain provenance all pile on top of one another in a developing story, very often of different dates, with discredited facts receiving equal billing with more reliable information. It is only fair to say that these defects can be found in conservative news outlets as well because the media in general is not organizationally structured to verify and preserve the integrity of information nor to apply rigorous analysis to it."

too busy to blog much for a few days 

I own an old farmhouse near the rio grande river here in new mexico, mi casa es una casa muy vieja de la granja y necesita alot del trabajo,

(it's old and it needs alot of work.)

im remodeling the guest bathroom which necessitated a total gutting, I have had to rip out the walls down to the studs, rip up the floor down to the joists, dig out the ground under the house and haul close to a dozen wheelbarrows full of dirt out through my living room. to make room for all new plumbing and access to it in the future,

the old stuff was so old that it was terra cotta pipes (clay pipes) and you can see from the pics that the joists are to far apart, (no housing codes to worry about 80 years ago in new mexico)

I just finished the new plumbing and reinforced the joists with new 2x8". and put in a new sub floor of 3/4" plywood with a 1/4" wonder board top, tommorow (wed) I plan to start tiling either with traditioanl saltillo tiles or something along that line, with a tile wainscote along the walls. then new shower, toilet, and pedestal sink.

anyway its alot of work so I dont have the time to surf the net keeping an eye on the weasils of the world till next week.

heres some pics of where I was at this morning before I reinforced the joists and put in the sub floor. basically it was just a big hole in the ground, ~~~~kinda like a liberals soul har har har I crack my self up!

open it in a separate window for a closer view, ya know, ...if plumbing really turns your crank.

one of the benefits of toppling saddam 

libya has been cooperating fully in the dismanteling of all thier weapons programs, because mo decided he didnt want to be next. some of the information and evidence coming out of this is that saddam had some of his best nuclear scientists in libya working to get them both (saddam & qaddafi) the bomb.

it is a strategic benifit of striking iraq, and it is a tactical move in the war on terror, it IS a war, this is part of it and we cant stop now.

....or by my friend benny, who thinks insurgents are just freedom fighters

****************************************************************************

friends dont let friends stay liberal, at least not without a fight. 

a very good friend of mine, my "brother" (we are that close) I am the god parent of his son, I was in the army with him through the late 80's and we have lived in the same cities after we both got out, doing the family thing together with our wives.,

he has literally been in college since we got out of the military first as a student then as a grad student and now as a professor in american history, and we fight like cats and dogs over politics.

he is a perfect example of someone who has been so insulated by acedemia, and so inculcated with the college propaganda of moral relativism that when I want to see what is being said or taught about a particular subject I just give him my point of view and see how he reacts, if he attacks me personally it means the party line hasnt trickled down yet, if he attacks bush it means they are working on it, and if he attacks america it means they have figured out thier answer and are passing it around.

dont get me wrong he is a stand up guy and in his personal life he is so conservative he makes ward cleaver look like a free wheelin johnny dep, but unfortunately he is a perfect example of brainwashing. if he reads this I will have to listen to him rant for an hour. blah blah blah blah


here is how I know the moral relativism crowd at the campus has come up with thier latest speel on not only why we are doing badly (I dispute that) but who our enemy is and why they aint so bad. (I dispute that too) unfortunately he ignores every hole I punch in his arguments like muslims ignore womens rights.

here is his answer to me after I sent him a few opinion pieces to read, which ones are immterialat this point, its his answer and the liberal hive mentality I think is a riot.

here is his answer and it is mirrored in an earlier post I did about michael moore. this is how I know his answer is the "officially aproved left wing answer.

everything but the kitchen sink is in this answer, a less than honorable picture painted of america or its history, an enemy that is related to and discribed as "not so bad" the add hominum euro socialist view that its america that is arrogant, and finally the attack on our projection of power fitting neatly into description #2 in my last post.



Tom,

This is the sort of shit that comes out of a mess such as the Middle East. When there is no political resolution there is war and terrorism, this happened during the American Revolution and the Civil War, brother against brother and horrid atrocities such as we see in the Middle East, its just the violence was not called terrorism. If you are living in a country occupied by an outside force and you try to kick them out why are you called a terrorist? How stupid. Think about the following hypothetical situation. What happened if Russians conquered America and we fought in guerilla style to kick them out so they would not establish communism. Would be called insurgents or terrorists? The arrogance to think that Muslims would want democracy instituted by America is beyond arrogance, and that is why American political leaders are now scaling back the rhetoric and sounding much more realistic about the outcome of this American folly.

Benny



besides iraq, his response was also in relation to this article reviewing the barbaric behavior of the plo even to thier own people.

now, im just an unfrozen caveman with not nearly the intelectual prowess of my old friend ben, so im going to let a picture tell a thousand words.

here in response to his contention that all that terorists are is noble misunderstood freedom fighters who have to do some unfortunate things that appear as terrorism to us, speel, (which I catagorically believe is a false asertion,) I give him and you exibit A.

the Hatuel family all shot in the faces (by palistinian "activists" so beloved by american acedemia) including the 2 year old, untill they were all obliterated.
hey benn, the one kind of looks like your little girl.... ruminate on that.

the stages of liberal oposition to america 

Pierre Legrand from the pink flamingo opined on his distress over the possible loss of GW and what it would mean, and I have some thoughts that crystalize for me what the nature of the oposition really is and why it is so dangerous to our nation.

the pink flamingo

I have been worrying about the War on Terror and have been harping and whining about the conduct of said war. I have through my belief that the war on terror was THE most important issue forgotten what will happen if I manage to pile on enough crap to enable the Democrats to win. They are NOT running someone like Joe Lieberman who would be just as committed to winning the war they are running someone who was President of an organization Vietnam Vets against the War that had this to say about 9/11.

For over a century, Western corporations have dominated the Middle East to profit from its oil. For the last 50 years, the United States has supported Israel's occupation of Palestinian lands and has helped prop up corrupt regimes in some Arab countries. The continued American troop presence in Saudi Arabia and the suffering of the Iraqi people under economic sanctions has added to this resentment.

This is the sort of person I may enable to win in November if I continue to harp and whine about each individual action of the President. Sure we can disagree with some actions but right now the most important item for us who believe that taking the war to the terrorists is the correct action is to support President Bush. Anything that contributes to the noise of criticism he faces increases the odds of John Kerry winning.

That is completely unacceptable.

the pink flamingo

damn right,

  • Ive noticed no matter how hard ive tried to get liberal friends to address the question of taking the fight to the enemy instead of reacting from our shores they just cant stay on topic, in the end that is the core, the kernal of there whole oposition to bush. he took the fight to the enemy.


  • for some it is just more than they can take that a republican did it, therefore no matter what they will belittle and criticize the effort,


  • for others they will never accept the projection of american power to offensively defend itself (the best defense is an offense) they are inherintly anti american when it comes to military action and dont even know it,


  • and the last group is a combination of those traits but has one even worse force driving them, the desire to see us fail because they believe we are responsible for all that is wrong in the world. these self haters are the traitorous dregs of our society. they beleive we deserve all that befalls us and we brought it on ourselves, we are the greatest evil on the planet



  • put all of these people together and you have a peace rally....



    or the democratic convention....

    and we want to reward them with a state? 

    the culture of death. how is israel to have peace with them when they know no peace amongst themselves

    Yasser Arafat has turned his Western-financed security forces into tools of oppression that call to mind the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein, reports Geostrategy-Direct, the global intelligence news service

    Arafat has taken a page from Saddam's book and instead of paying decent salaries, implicitly encourages security officers to rob, pillage, rape and even kill ordinary Palestinians who get in their way.

    New evidence of the methods and abuses of the Palestinian security agencies is presented in a new report by the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group, perhaps the only Palestinian group that has actually monitored Palestinian human rights abuses. The report, "Intrafada, the Chaos of the Weapons," documents official Palestinian abuse of their own people and the transformation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip into a wasteland of violence.

    What do Palestinians do in such a hell? Those who can, run. The report said Christian migration has increased and cities with Christian majorities have been taken over by the Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Hamas and Jihad encourage this migration. They first target Christian women who don't dress according to Islamic norms. They also take over Christian homes for use in attacks against Israeli forces, particularly in the Bethlehem area.

    The report said 90 percent of what it termed "gang lawlessness" can be traced to people on the PA payroll. The report said Fatah operatives often bring their guns to a dispute between Palestinian neighbors.

    One of Fatah's favored and most feared tactics is the accusation of collaboration with Israel, a charge that can carry a sentence of death without trial. The PA or the terror gangs often swoop in to detain, torture and even kill a Palestinian accused of collaboration. No one bothers to investigate, even if Arafat orders a probe.

    Collaboration also provides an option to punish women. The accusation by a husband that his wife is a collaborator has a chilling affect on the family. Women who don't listen to their fathers have been accused of collaboration to ensure that they are killed. Fatah terrorists often rape and then kill women who refuse to marry them and later charge the victims with being collaborators.

    "Violence permeates the security forces, and it is worsened by legal confusions," the group said in a report. "Unless and until more accountability and order is introduced, the problem will remain and could worsen as PA control continues to deteriorate. Sometimes violence erupts between police members and loyalists of political factions."

    the article these come from touches on detailing relations on campus between islamists, leftwing radicals and the anti semitism and pure hate and fascism they display towards jewish students and oposing points of view.
    it is breathtakingly orwellian the way they physically attack opponents spit on them, shout them down knock them down all the while calling the people they rage against and attack (most of whom are jewish) nazis.

    all that and more while delighting in busloads of israelis being blown up, they practically foam at the mouth. they are legion on the campus and rading the whole article was chilling.

    here are a few quoted passages but all four pages need to be read this is the tip of the iceberg:


    "We must be in power," Ali continued coolly. He rounded up his lecture by promising that "when it's all over, the only one standing is gonna be us."

    "Allahu akbar."

    "We ain't gonna lose. We must implement Islam as a totality," in which "Allah controls every place -- the home, the classroom, the science lab, the halls of Congress."

    The weekend concluded with an evening program called "Muslim Students in the Struggle." A few officers and alumni took turns at the podium; one young man speculated about the day "when we are called upon to rock the West like it's never been rocked before." This is inevitable, he said. "Allah has promised the people that they will inherit this land."

    "Allahu akbar,"

    came a chorus.

    Abdel Malik Ali also returned one final time, prodding the young crowd to "work on building Islamic infrastructures in the USA now.

    " He allowed: "There will be some poop-butts who will not want to live under sharia law and will leave.



    anger hat on now.

    first off im not a poopbutt, I wipe quite well thankyou, second I am armed to the teeth and I aint going anywhere you koranimal motherfucker. you wanna take this country for isalm & sharia? I wanna see you try..... cause then I will know where to aim, (center mass)

    I will never allow myself or my family or my country live under sharia and I will fight too the islamofascist's death to keep that from happening.

    Reuters is giving lessons in how to lie out your ass like it was a megaphone. 

    original fabrication,.. I mean "report"

    Military shrugs off attack on wedding party (lets start with the title, el reuters shows thier true colors by taking sides and declaring it a wedding party. how the fuck would they know? they dont even pretend to be unbiased anymore no "alleged" no "purported" no caveat that one side says it was a "wedding party. fuckers)

    May 22, 2004


    Falluja: A US Marines general says he has no need to apologise for an attack in the remote Iraqi desert that killed about 40 people, who witnesses say included women and children celebrating a wedding. (the sneaky way this is worded is to put the smaller number of dead consisting of some women and possibly some children, out front and ignore who the majority of the dead were, which as you read on is done clearly to obfuscate the fact they were jihaadi combatants. since these morons travel and make war with thier women and children its unfortunately true that these noncombatant camp followers may be killed along with thier lunatic extremist husbands.)

    "How many people go to the middle of the desert 10 miles [16 kilometres] from the Syrian border to hold a wedding 80 miles from the nearest civilisation?" Major-General James Mattis, commander of the 1st Marine Division, which operates in western Iraq, said in Falluja.

    "These were more than two dozen military-age males. Let's not be naive."


    Asked about witness testimony and footage from Dubai-based Al Arabiya television that showed weeping relatives lowering bodies, one of a child, into graves, he said: "I have not seen the pictures but bad things happen in wars. I don't have to apologise for the conduct of my men." (I would be even more blunt and say arab tv cannot be trusted to air legitimate footage it was probably file footage cut together with interviews with jihaadi's for propaganda purposes)

    US military officers said they would open an investigation into the ground and air assault, which has produced sharply conflicting accounts. (of course the accounts are sharply conflicting but the fact that the majority of the dead are reported as men doesnt jive with the account from the "eyewittnesses below saying the they were mostly women and children,, really when does a wedding consist mostly of women and children and they are all up"partying at three in the morning, with rifles sat phones loads of cash and foriegn passports)


    Witnesses near the village of Makr al-Deeb, in the desert near the Syrian border, told television crews that a US military aircraft strafed innocent people, mostly women and children,(how could it be mostly women and children here, but in other news accounts footage show only a handfull of bodies reported as women or children?) at a wedding party. However, US military officers maintain that the target was a way station used by armed foreign insurgents who cross the porous border into Iraq.(which is more beleivable since army scouts had to have been spying on it)

    Brigadier-General Mark Kimmitt, deputy director of operations for the US military in Iraq, said an investigation was "the only prudent thing to do" because of the gravity of allegations made by people interviewed on television.

    Among those killed in the attack were "34 to 35 men" and "less than a handful of women", General Kimmitt said in Baghdad. US ground troops stayed at the site "for an extensive period of time", he said, and did not find any dead children among the casualties.(better bury this at the bottom, it conflicts with rueters asscertion in the title that it was "fur shur a wedding party"

    General Kimmitt said the ground forces were attacked and returned fire. He did not directly answer a question about whether foreign fighters were the only people killed.

    Witnesses said the attack was on a house where a wedding had been held and killed 41 people. (I think they said this allready a couple of times but hey you cant spread a lie to replace the truth unless you say it loud and say it often. so better wrap the bottom in the lie just like the title.)

    cnn of all places reports details that start to fill in the blanks

    A senior coalition military spokesman said Saturday that dozens of people killed in a U.S. attack in the Iraqi desert early Wednesday were attending a high-level meeting of foreign fighters, not a wedding. Photos shown to reporters in Baghdad support that contention.

    Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt said six women were among the dead, but he said there was no evidence any children died in the raid near the Syrian border. Coalition officials have said as many as 40 people were killed. Kimmitt said video showing dead children killed was actually recorded in Ramadi, far from the attack scene.

    "There may have been some kind of celebration," Kimmitt said. "Bad people have celebrations too. Bad people have parties too." Kimmitt said troops did not find anything -- such as a wedding tent, gifts, musical instruments, decorations or leftover food -- that would indicate a wedding had been held.

    Most of the men there were of military age, and there were no elders present to indicate a family event, he said. What was found, he said, indicated the building was used as a way station for foreign fighters crossing into Iraq from Syria to battle the coalition.

    "The building seemed to be somewhat of a dormitory," Kimmitt said. "You had over 300 sets of bedding gear in it. You had a tremendous number of pre-packaged clothing -- apparently about a hundred sets of pre-packaged clothing. "[It is] expected that when foreign fighters come in from other countries, they come to this location, they change their clothes into typical Iraqi clothing sets."

    At Saturday's briefing for reporters in Baghdad, Kimmitt showed photos of what he said were binoculars designed for adjusting artillery fire, battery packs suitable for makeshift bombs, several terrorist training manuals, medical gear, fake ID cards and ID card-making machines, passports and telephone numbers to other countries, including Afghanistan and Sudan. None of the men killed in the raid carried ID cards or wallets, he said. "We feel that that was an indicator that this was a high risk meeting of high-level anti-coalition forces," Kimmitt said. "There was a tremendous number of incriminating pocket litter, a lot of telephone numbers to foreign countries, Afghanistan, Sudan and a number of others."

    firearms 

    lately ive noticed threads about firearms or threads that have devolved into the issue.

    so I figured I would post about the issue. but I am not going to belabour the argument for or against, (im pro gun)

    instead im going to do some reviews on good firearm buy's.

    the first one is the makarov.



    a semi auto pistol produced in the old east bloc countries and russia. it is an exellent buy, with many avenues to aquire it around 190 bucks or less (I paid 130 for mine)

    it is accurate to an amazing degree. mine were both equal in quality to some of the 600 dollar guns ive seen out there. it makes a fine little self defense gun.

    it has a variety of add ons for the enthusiast and are all reasonably priced. it has an interesting history as the side arm for the soviet military, and many east bloc countries.

    here is a write up: makarov faqs

    Pistolet Makarova (or PM) - Soviet Makarov combat pistol.
    You can sum up the Pistolet Makarova in three little words - "simple and reliable."
    It has served the armed forces of the (defunct) USSR for something like 40 years now - that is a testimonial that is worth something. The (former) Soviets had their problems, but they didn't scrimp on their weapon systems.

    Nikolai Fedorovich Makarov was 31 at the end of World War II when the Soviet Union called for the design of a new combat service pistol in 7.62 or 9mm. Rather than using the .380ACP or 9mmParabellum, Makarov designed a new round, the 9x18mmMakarov. This round is cylindrical like the .380ACP but has the same head diameter as the tapered 9mmParabellum, necessitating a larger 9.25mm bullet with a standard weight of 6 grams (92.5gr)

    The 9x18mmMakarov cartridge was developed to be up to 50% more powerful than the .380ACP. As such, it is about as powerful a round as can be used in a small pistol firing from a simple unlocked breech. Anything stronger would require so strong a spring to delay the slide's opening that the slide could not be pulled back my many people to load the pistol. Suggestion: look around and find an ASTRA 400 and try to cock it, you'll see what I mean.

    Production started in Russia in 1951 (or slightly earlier?), with China and East Germany following in the late 1950s. These guns are substantially identical except for markings.

    The Baikal IJ-70 is reliable as hell with the surplus GI ammo currently flooding the marketplace (95gr TMJ made at the famous TULA Ammunitions Factory, Russia), absolutely outstanding practice ammo. Best 'carry' ammo, IMHO, is the Hornady Custom 95gr XTP-HP. There's only one drawback with Ruskie GI ammo, it uses corrosive primer requiring cleaning of the weapon after each firing session. No big deal, it promotes good weapons familiarization.

    The Pistolet Makarova is widely available in the U.S.A. in both the original 9x18mmMakarov caliber and .380ACP. Speaking for myself I'm partial to the 9x18mm, however there are very good defensive commercial loads available for both calibers, Remington Golden Saber HPJ in .380ACP comes to mind. Some might find the recoil from the less-powerful .380ACP more to their liking. The .380ACP can be fired in the 9x18 chamber, in a survival situation only!(im going to chime in here, do not under any circumstances put any amo in any gun which are not intended to go together, no matter the situation, instead keep the proper amunition handy and forget what this author said, it is a recipe for disaster)

    The East German and Bulgarian Makarovs have the best reputation for fit and finish, though the newer Ruskie production models seem fine to me.

    The standard model uses 8-round straight-stack magazines
    This is a compact, blowback operation, double-action trigger and external hammer design similar to a Walther PP. The DA trigger pull is long and about 13 to 14 pounds. The SA trigger pull is *MUCH* better!

    The safety is of the de-cocking, hammer-block type and is moved up to the safe position and down to fire. The slide will not move when the safety is on. The hammer cannot contact the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled, even with the safety off.

    The accuracy is quite comparable to the Walther PP at less than half the cost. Some have reported 1.5" groups at 25 yards. The sights can be painted with white nail polish for better visability as night sights would cost as much as the original price


    here is a great customizer site for this fine little firearm.

    and speaking of dogs I found this article fascinating.

    Researchers use DNA to uncover roots of the family trees' of dogs
    The study of canine genetics may help scientists answer questions about gene problems related to diseases in humans

    Friday, May 21, 2004
    ANDY DWORKIN


    The work showed that, as a species, dogs have about the same amount of genetic variation as people, Ostrander said. But there's a key difference: In dogs, a very large portion of the genetic difference falls along breed lines. That means that dog breeds are genetically distinct and can be easily categorized with DNA scans.

    Although breeds are genetically distinct, Ostrander and her colleagues found that some sets of breeds share enough genetic information to identify as a genetically linked grouping.

    The first group to emerge from that project is a set of dogs of Asian and African origin, from the wrinkly Shar-Pei to the thick-coated Alaskan malamute. These dogs are the most genetically similar to wolves, dogs' evolutionary ancestor, Ostrander said. In fact, the scientists included wolf DNA in the study, which statistically fit well with this group.

    The mastiff and related dogs fill the second grouping, Ostrander said. It includes the bulldog and boxer and large breeds such as the Rottweiler and Newfoundland. Surprisingly, the German shepherd also lumps with this group.

    The third genetically similar group includes many herding dogs, such as the Belgian sheepdog and collie, as well as Irish wolfhounds, greyhounds, borzois and Saint Bernards. The final group included dogs that have been bred relatively recently in Europe, mostly for hunting -- scent hounds, terriers, spaniels, pointers and retrievers.

    Genes revealed that at least three ancient-seeming breeds were actually re-created recently by breeding existing dogs to get an antique look: The Norwegian elkhound, pharaoh hound and Ibizan hound, the paper says.

    Combining such knowledge with the coming dog genome should help researchers decide which breeds or groups of breeds to study for the origins of traits, Ostrander said. For instance, someone looking for a unique gene in mastiffs could know that bullmastiffs are genetically very similar and apt for study.

    But with biologists' ark-full of rats, mice, fish, flies and monkeys to study, why study dogs at all? As the Science paper says, "The domestic dog is a genetic enterprise unique in human history."

    Purebred dogs arose from a few hundred years of rigorous inbreeding. That created a great differences between dogs -- just think of a Chihuahua and a Great Dane. But the short evolutionary time it took to separate breeds should mean relatively few genes have mutated to create those dramatic differences.

    In short, when scientists look at breed-specific traits, their related genes should be consistent within a breed but stand out fairly notably from dissimilar breeds -- like a person out of uniform in a marching band.

    Scientists try to use that genetic power in humans by screening families prone to genetic diseases. But humans interbreed so much that large, genetically distinct families are hard to find -- not a problem for purebreds.

    "To be a registered poodle, your parents had to be registered poodles, and their parents had to be registered poodles," Ostrander said.

    are muslims or islam ever responsible for anything? Apparently not..... 

    I saw this first at occams toothbrush

    Andrew C. McCarthy
    Hearts and Minds
    We shouldn’t bother trying so hard.

    You probably thought Nick Berg was slaughtered by Islamic militants, didn't you?

    Just because, in an Arab country teeming with jihadists who target Americans every day, an American got butchered by hooded assassins who read a proclamation of grievances, laced with allusions to Islam, in Arabic, before hacking his head off while his shrieking agony was drowned out by that now-familiar soundtrack of atrocity, the Allahu akbar ("God is great!") chant, you probably rushed to judgment, right? Just because the barbarians recorded their handiwork and the tape, voila, instantly ended up on a website that reliably promotes militant Islam, which bragged that the decapitation was executed by none other than Abu Musab Zarqawi — whose extensive jihadist rap sheet defies accurate accounting in our limited space — you no doubt found yourself leaping to the rash conclusion that Berg's killing was carried out by Muslim extremists.

    Fortunately, now comes al-Jazeera's Sam Hamod to straighten you out. Hamod, a 68-year-old Lebanese American (born in Indiana), is not only an esteemed member of the American academy — a retired professor at Princeton, Iowa, Howard, and Michigan Universities, according to one of his recent screeds — but also a poet, author, former director of the Islamic Center of Washington, D.C., and, according to his own assertion in several published stories, a former adviser to the United States Department of State. Never one to engage in bombast or draw extravagant conclusions on less than airtight proof, it was only about a week ago that we found Professor Hamod helpfully explaining how the Abu Ghraib prison abuse illustrated that...George W. Bush is not a real Christian. ("No matter what President Bush says about being a 'born again Christian,' I think he is a false witness to Christ, and that God will deal with Mr. Bush in this life and certainly in the next." To see the rest of this scintillating essay, entitled "A Muslim Leader Speaks Out", it is here ).

    Now he is back with a new piece: the "Muslim Perspective" on the Berg homicide. And what might that perspective be? Well, that Berg almost certainly was not killed by Muslims.

    Why? Because, you'll be comforted to know, Islam has strict rules about beheading, and they don't appear to have been followed in this case.


    read the rest to see these rules and the amazingly loony conspiracy he weaves.

    I love this post over at mypetjawa, very provocative 

    should the press be censored?


    "Freedom of speech cannot mean the same thing in a time of war that it means in a time of peace. BRD over at Anticipatory Retaliation makes a similar point. Context. Context. Context! In times of peace we generally agree that it is NOT alright to kill people. In times of war we intentionally send our fellow citizens to kill and be killed. In both cases people die, but it is the context that changes the morality of their actions. Unless you are a pacifist, you must believe that killing is sometimes justified. In my book, killing someone else is probably the most severe thing you could possibly do. When we send our fellow troops into war we are asking them not only to kill others, but also to die. The decision to go to war must be a grave one because we are sentencing a certain unknown number of our sons, daughters, husbands, wives, and friends to death. Life is the most fundamental right given to man. If we can ask them to die in our place, why can they not ask us to censor what we say so that a few more of them may live? It seems odd that one is willing to take away our soldiers right to life, but not the press’s right to run stories that may get some of our soldiers killed."

    does anyone believe this crap? 

    Israel Defies World Outcry, Expands Gaza Offensive

    By Nidal al-Mughrabi

    RAFAH, Gaza Strip (Reuters) - Israel defied international fury at the killing of nearly 40 Palestinians in the Rafah refugee camp, a militant stronghold, to expand its bloodiest Gaza Strip raid in years on Thursday.

    The U.N. Security Council, convened at the behest of Arabs incensed at what they branded a "war crime," passed a resolution urging an end to violence after Israeli forces killed up to 10 Palestinians, many of them youths, at a peaceful protest.



    how many errors can we find in just the first paragraph or so?

    first problem, who cares what the international furor crowd thinks, they hate israel no matter what happens and I recall ABSOLUTELY NO INTERNATIONAL FURY WHEN A BUNCH OF PALEOSTINIAN ANIMALS MURDERED A PREGNANT MOTHER AND SHOT ALL HER CHILDREN POINT BLANK IN THIER FACES!!

    second problem the death count, typically rueters the shill for arabislam opolegetics, makes no attempt to give the fact that only about 8 were non combatants killed BECAUSE THEY WERE MARCHING IN A WAR ZONE WITH GUNMEN AROUND THEM! the rest were fucking terrorist scum killed fighting the IDF.

    third when has the UN ever convened to denounce arab palistinian violence and terrorism against jews??? fuck them.

    and finally peacefull protest?? come on does anyone believe that??? they throw molotove coctails, allow gunmen to shoot at israelis while standing amonst them, then cry crocodile tears when someone being used as a hman shield gets hurt. the violence will end when the arabs love thier children more than they hate the jews... aaahh hell let me expand that the violence will end when muslims love instead of hate.


    UPDATE: charles of LGF had this-

    palistinian terrorists deliberatly kill palistinian children
    An official IDF source confirmed Amir Orens’ 21 May story this afternoon to IMRA that two Palestinian children who died in the Rafah procession incident were murdered by Palestinian gunmen and that the IDF photographed the shooting.

    wow.

    my what big teeth you have grandma.... 

    or~~~ the wolf in wedding party clothing....

    I went over to the command post and spotted this news.
    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Pentagon officials Wednesday denied alleged eyewitness reports of a U.S. attack on a wedding party in a remote area of western Iraq that killed innocent civilians.

    "Our report is that this was not a wedding party, that these were anti-coalition forces that fired first, and that U.S. troops returned fire, destroying several vehicles, and killing a number of them," a Pentagon spokesman said.

    He was responding to a video distributed by The Associated Press showing Iraqi witnesses who said that at least 20 people were killed and five others critically wounded early Wednesday when planes fired on a wedding celebration.




    dress it up and call it a wedding party....

    a wedding party firing on U.S. ground and air, forces

    a wedding party in the middle of no where, but straddling a major smuggling route for arms and jihaadis

    a wedding party with sat phones huge amounts of cash, amunition and foriegn passports.

    the enemy is mastering the art of the big lie. and jeffers at the command post details his suspicions


    "It’s obviously a setup.

    Consider, satcom radios, clearly not a part of a wedding, plus small arms, and on the other hand, digital images of kids with a coherent wedding story right after the fact.

    Can’t have both without a plan in advance.

    They want us to stop interdicting the smuggling of men and materiel across the Syrian border."


    Mark Jones hits the big lie head on with this characterization

    I see that the “Iraqi” “rebels” have learned well from their Palestinean cohorts. Every lost battle is a massacre, an unprovoked, unexplainable act of random viciousness; every dead splodeydope (or fellow traveler, supplier, etc.) is a harmless, helpless, hapless victim of undeserved villification and murder. ‘Cause, you know, weddings always happen at 2:45 a.m. in remote areas known for smuggling…in houses found to contain weapons, Syrian cash and other wedding tackle.

    In case it ain’t obvious to the hard-of-thinking, I don’t believe them for an instant.


    and neither do I

    Last year, Franco-US relations were at a low. What's it like to be an American in Cannes this year? By B Ruby Rich

    Wednesday May 19, 2004
    The Guardian


    Michael Moore: 'He's made it enjoyable to be an American in Cannes for the first time in memory.' (gag, hack, phewi))

    The Cannes film festival has always been a difficult destination for Americans. Pathetically monolingual, we rarely speak enough French to defend ourselves against the chorus of "C'est interdit", the words of prohibition that block the effort to walk up the grand staircase to the Palais. Then there's the damnable French taste in films, so worshipful of auteurism, art and craft, so seemingly disdainful of the industrial formulae of contemporary Hollywood, apart from a love for some of its stars.
    Of course, for all the grumbling, Americans mostly just want to be accepted. That's been a harder task than ever, though, since the start of the war in Iraq and the bold French decision to abstain from the Anglo-American adventure. Last year, bad blood boiled: "freedom fries" were on offer in the US Congress cafeteria and, at Cannes, Americans who braved the Atlantic to show up at the festival tended to slink around.

    Still, there's always been a counter-swell of Americans that have come to the Croisette to be discovered, from this year's jury president Quentin Tarantino, bad boy made good by winning a Palme d'Or, to the latest Palme d'Or aspirant, Michael Moore.

    The prospect of seeing Moore's new film, Farenheit 911, as an American among the French was enough to send me halfway across the world on an unplanned trip into the maelstrom. Not least because the official screening of Fahrenheit 911 on Monday climaxed a feverish publicity campaign, orchestrated by Moore, over Disney's decision to force subsidiary Miramax to drop his film from distribution. Would the film measure up to expectations? More importantly, what would the French make of this Dear George opus?

    Well, there was no anti-American greeting for this American from the heartland bearing the good news that Bush is bad news. Moore arrived late for the screening, turned before entering the sacred gates and waved to the crowd. Or was it a salute? The crowd roared back its approval, a wild welcome that was repeated by the crowd inside the Palais.




    Michael Moore~~~~ european asshats love me they really really love me! all that I had to do was be a socialist, turn on my own country, lie about our president during a war, forget we were attacked on 911 and pretend we have invaded afghanistan and iraq to enrich bush cronies instead of ensuring the saftey of america by taking the fight to our enemies. I will do anything to advance my political agenda! including calling terrorists and insurgents in iraq killing american soldiers and iraqi civillians freedom fighters! how could the europeans not love me?

    and to paint a fuller picture of this noxious asshole, he not only hates the president he hates america, here are a sample of what he thinks about hard working average small bussiness owners just like people in your town.

    quote:You know in my town the small businesses that everyone wanted to protect? They were the people that supported all the right-wing groups. They were the Republicans in the town, they were in the Kiwanas, the Chamber of Commerce - people that kept the town all white. The small hardware salesman, the small clothing store salespersons, Jesse the Barber who signed his name three different times on three different petitions to recall me from the school board. Fuck all these small businesses - fuck 'em all! Bring in the chains. The small businesspeople are the rednecks that run the town and suppress the people. Fuck 'em all. That's how I feel."end quote

    and he puts his money where his mouth is by saying fuck you american web designers when he outsourced his web site to a canadian company. fuckin hypocrite.

    update: and moving right along to the newest revelation that moore is a liar, moore is a lying asswipe, moore is a lying hypocritical crapweasil, is this from fred barnes editor of the weekly standard.

    Michael Moore and Me

    by Fred Barnes
    05/31/2004,

    A FEW YEARS AGO Michael Moore, who's now promoting an anti-President Bush movie entitled Fahrenheit 9/11, announced he'd gotten the goods on me, indeed hung me out to dry on my own words. It was in his first bestselling book, Stupid White Men. Moore wrote he'd once been "forced" to listen to my comments on a TV chat show, The McLaughlin Group. I had whined "on and on about the sorry state of American education," Moore said, and wound up by bellowing: "These kids don't even know what The Iliad and The Odyssey are!"

    Moore's interest was piqued, so the next day he said he called me. "Fred," he quoted himself as saying, "tell me what The Iliad and The Odyssey are." I started "hemming and hawing," Moore wrote. And then I said, according to Moore: "Well, they're . . . uh . . . you know . . . uh . . . okay, fine, you got me--I don't know what they're about. Happy now?" He'd smoked me out as a fraud, or maybe worse.

    The only problem is none of this is true. It never happened. Moore is a liar. He made it up. It's a fabrication on two levels. One, I've never met Moore or even talked to him on the phone. And, two, I read both The Iliad and The Odyssey in my first year at the University of Virginia. Just for the record, I'd learned what they were about even before college. Like everyone else my age, I
    got my classical education from the big screen. I saw the Iliad movie called Helen of Troy and while I forget the name of the Odyssey film, I think it starred Kirk Douglas as Odysseus.

    So why didn't I scream bloody murder when the book came out in 2001? I didn't learn about the phony anecdote until it was brought to my attention by Alan Wolfe, who was reviewing Moore's book for the New Republic. He asked, by email, if the story were true. I said no, not a word of it, and Wolfe quoted me as saying that. That was enough, I thought. After all, who would take a shrill, lying lefty like Moore seriously?

    More people than I thought. Moore's new movie attacking Bush was given a 20-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival. Moore has described the movie as breaking new ground and revealing new facts, but the accounts by reviewers suggest it merely provides the standard left-wing, conspiratorial critique of the president. Reviewer Lou Lumenick of the New York Post, who gave Moore's previous movie Bowling for Columbine four stars, said the anti-Bush film would be news only "if you spent the last three years hiding in a cave in Afghanistan." Still, I suppose it's not surprising they loved it in France.

    "I think we should point out here, that, that there really is only one weapon of mass destruction, that's a nuclear bomb. Uh, I have to say that in my book, and I'm not an expert but, uh, artillery shells don't really count."

    the rest of the spin and lies at Melanie Phillips's Diary

    so at this point no matter how much sarin we find or mustard gas we find now only a nuke will fit the bill to disprove that "bush lied"

    fucktards...

    and From OpinionJournal.com

    Best of the Web Today james taranto observes the twisted logic, half truths ommissions and outright lies from you guessed it *phewi* the new york times


    'Very Small Traces'

    "Imagine if some malicious prankster were to make his way into the offices of the New York Times, find editorial page editor Gail Collins, and pour a gallon of milk over her head. Then imagine if he defended himself by saying he had used only "very small traces" of milk.

    Bizarre as it may sound, that's the tack the Times is taking toward the discovery earlier this week of an artillery shell containing sarin in Iraq. Although, as we noted yesterday, the volume of the sarin is between three quarts and a gallon, the Times insists that field tests found only "very small traces of sarin."

    The Times continues protesting Saddam Hussein's innocence, suggesting that he did away with his weapons in "a large-scale destruction program" from which only "some residual weapons" may have "escaped"--never mind that U.N. resolutions obliged Saddam to destroy all his weapons and to document their destruction.

    Anyway, the Times says, maybe this sarin doesn't really exist. "At this point no one can be certain whether the artillery shell rigged as a roadside bomb really did contain deadly sarin and, if so, what significance that may have."

    That's funny, we seem to remember reading somewhere that "the discovery of the sarin-filled shell appears to offer some of the most substantial evidence to date that Mr. Hussein did not destroy all of the banned chemical agent, as he claimed before the war last year." Where was that again?

    Oh yes, in the New York Times! But as we noted yesterday, the paper buried the sarin story on page 11. We suppose Collins and her staff can't be troubled to read that deeply into their own paper."

    SARIN AND SHELL HAD TO BE POST DESERT STORM MANUFACTURE 

    or the other title~~~ the left is lying to you day and night trying to lull you back to sleep and hoping all you will remember is the mantra they keep pounding into you, there are no wmd's "bush lied there are no wmd's bush lied, there are no wmd's bush lied you are growing sleepy when you awake all that you will know is that buuuush lied..."


    the detective work you probably will never hear from the mainstream media (which has already started to cover it up)has been done at blasters blog and the conclusions are ominous

    Binary munitions undeclared


    "Iraq never declared any binary 155mm artillery shells. In fact, they never claimed any filled with sarin at all in the UNSCOM Final report (Find on "Munitions declared by Iraq as remaining"). Not declared as existing at the end of the Gulf War, not having been destroyed in the Gulf War, not having been destroyed unilaterally. The only binary munitions claimed by the Iraqis were aerial bombs and missile warheads. Not in an artillery shell."


    According to this UNSCOM factsheet (PDF):

    Iraqi CW agents were not comparable in quality to those stored in the arsenals of the USA and the former USSR, however. Impurities meant that the toxic compounds lacked stability and easily decomposed; as a consequence, Iraq developed a crude type of binary munition, whereby the final mixing of the two precursors to the agent was done inside the munition just before delivery. This had a major impact on the logistics of and preparations for chemical warfare, which may partly explain how overwhelming coalition air superiority prevented the use of CW during Operation Desert Storm

    junkyard blog weighs in:

    "That's according to UNSCOM's 1998 factsheet on Iraq's WMDs, so it can't be spun as Bush propaganda unless you want to propose that he time-travelled back a few years to plant this document. Though Iraq never declared that it even possessed such a shell in any UN report, 155 mm mustard gas shells did turn up after the Gulf War, as did 122 mm binary sarin shells. Iraq had the technology to manufacture these chemical shells in country, and could convert pesticide factories to produce sarin without much fuss.

    So...we have an Iraqi WMD that was previously unknown, even after a decade of sanctions and searches and shooting wars, turning up in the hands of terrorists. Do you think there are more like this one out there? Do you think the LA Slimes and other "mainstream" press outlets will investigate any of this stuff?"




    blasters blog lays out how the major medias have allready started to lie, put words in peoples mouths that were never said, and generally weave a web of deciet to cover thier ass's.

    this shell was production manufactered in iraq, it was not an experimental round or a one of a kind. it was by all evidence manufactured after the gulf war under the noses of the weapons inspectors.
    and this post by blaster also explains why this is huge news

    the left and their transparent lies... 

    I saw this at brainsters blog and it just oozed a lie to appear like a a more reasonable person whos opinion should carry whieght. I had to thrash it, and as a former military man myself I want to say I dont believe this yahoo for one moment.

    here is the letter:

    Praise for Ted Rall

    Published: May 06, 2004

    I couldn't agree more with Ted Rall's cartoon questioning Pat Tillman's hero credentials. (See "Ralls' 'Tillman' Cartoon Pulled by MSNBC.com".)

    I am a combat veteran of Vietnam and the first Gulf war and retired Army chief warrant officer. My military service and duty to America spanned over 32 years. I also have a son that just recently returned from a year's combat service in Iraq.

    I stand strongly on my belief that I have a right to protect my family, property, and borders of this country. However, I have no right (and neither does my son) to kill and murder for government.

    How ignorant and absurd many Americans believe that the conflict we are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, some 6,000 miles away, have something to do with protecting our freedoms (what's left of them).

    That's not to say that I do not grieve for Mr. Tillman's family. I grieve for all the families that have lost loved ones. I grieve for those that have returned wounded and disfigured.

    How ignorant for people to believe that Mr. Tillman's voluntary service, regardless of consequences, would not attract media attention. I just wish that the Pentagon would share the same philosophy and permit viewing of the caskets that endlessly arrive from the administration's desire for world dominance and empire.

    In the first days of the Iraq war, I wrote a media release message in the event my son got killed in this senseless and unlawful war. In the press release, I asked that no one, absolutely no one, make reference to my son as a hero, patriot, or a sacrifice for freedom and security.

    Rather, I asked that my son be remembered as an American citizen that was lied to when he took his enlistment oath into the military. He swore to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. This he would do, even unto his death if required. The Iraq war has nothing to do with supporting and defending the Constitution.

    Jess Salazar
    Cabot, Ark.



    here is my opinion of this asshats credibility:

    thats the most twisted left wing logic ive read in a while,

    I dont beleive he is who he says he is.

    anyone who would say this~~~


    "How ignorant and absurd many Americans believe that the conflict we are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, some 6,000 miles away, have something to do with protecting our freedoms"

    doesnt have the critical thinking skills to have ever reached the rank he claimed to have reached, and anyone who has spent a life time in the military ready to do his duty when called wouldnt have this bizzare outlook on life or the military or the projection of power for the saftey of the nation. and most certainly wouldnt have a son in the millitary.

    this guy is lying out his ass to appear to be one of the unwashed masses.

    and what did this clown think 911 was?

    it was a military strike at our nation by an entity that had declared war on us and was being given safe haven and sponsorship by the "government" of afghansitan 6000 miles away. that base of operations had to be denied to al qaida and the war had to be taken to them instead of defensively cowering at the edge of our own shores.

    the president warned that a war would be prosecuted unless they turned al-qaida over. they refused.

    no right minded person doesnt understands this reality and this chronology

    and he is neither of right mind nor of the capability to ever have spent a lifetime with the self discipline of giving and following orders...

    Vet: Officers told Kerry to leave Vietnam
    From The American Thinker via World Net Daily
    (excerpt):

    Thomas Wright was one of John F. Kerry’s fellow Swift boat officers in Vietnam. Since Wright outranked Kerry, he was Kerry’s sometime boat group Officer-in-Charge, so Wright had occasion to observe Kerry’s behavior and attitudes, .



    When John Kerry radioed another Swift boat, he used the call sign, “Boston Strangler …

    Working with call sign “Boston Strangler” became problematical. “I had a lot of trouble getting him to follow orders,” recalls Wright. “He had a different view of leadership and operations. Those of us with direct experience working with Kerry found him difficult and oriented towards his personal, rather than unit goals and objectives. I believed that overall responsibility rested squarely on the shoulders of the OIC or OTC in a free-fire zone. You had to be right (before opening fire). Kerry seemed to believe there were no rules in a free-fire zone and you were supposed to kill anyone. I didn’t see it that way.”

    Then Wright and like-minded boat officers took matters into their own hands. “When he got his third Purple Heart, three of us told him to leave. We knew how the system worked and we didn’t want him in Coastal Division 11. Kerry didn’t manipulate the system, we did.”

    The War that Dare Not Speak Its Name
    The battle is against militant Islam, not “Terror”


    By Andrew C. McCarthy

    As an assistant U.S. attorney, time and time again I heard it over the last decade, from ordinary Muslims we reached out to for help — people we wanted to hire as Arabic translators, or who were potential witnesses, or who were simply in a position to provide helpful information. People who were as far from being terrorists as you could possibly be. “I’d like to help the government,” they would say, “but I can’t.” And it was not so much about their safety — although there was, no doubt, some of that going on. It was about ostracism.

    Repeatedly they’d tell us that the militant factions dominated their communities. These elements were usually not the most numerous, but they were the most vocal, the best networked, the best funded, and the most intimidating. Consequently, people whose patriotic instinct was to be helpful could not overcome the fear that they and their families could be blackballed if it became known that they had helped the United States prosecute Muslim terrorists. The militants had the kind of suasion that could turn whole communities into captive audiences.

    This is no small matter. Events of the last decade, throughout the world, are a powerful lesson that the more insular and dominated communities become, the more they are likely to breed the attitudes and pathologies that lead to terrorist plots and suicide bombings. It’s true that suicide bombers seem to defy precise psychological profiling; they come from diverse economic and educational backgrounds — the only common thread seems to be devotion to militant Islam. But while we have not had success predicting who is likely to become a suicide bomber, it is far easier to get a read on where suicide bombers and other terrorists will come from. They come from communities where the militants dominate and those who don’t accept their beliefs are cowed into submission.

    That militant Islam is our enemy is a fact. That it is the object of our war is a fact. That we need to empower real moderates is a fact. And we need to talk about these facts.

    We are not helping the authentic moderates if we avoid having the conversation that so needs to be had if the militants hiding in the weeds we’ve created are going to be exposed and marginalized. If we fail to be critical, if we fail to provoke that discussion, it will continue to be militants who hold positions of influence and who control indoctrination in communities, madrassas, prisons, and other settings where the young, the vulnerable, and the alienated are searching for direction.

    WMD'S USED AS AN IMPROVISED BOMB IN BAGHDAD, SARIN FOUND 

    SEE HOW FAST THE LIBERAL MEDIA DISCOUNTS IT...

    Bomb With Sarin Nerve Agent Explodes in Iraq
    Two Treated for Minor Exposure; No Serious Injuries Reported
    By CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA, AP


    BAGHDAD, Iraq (May 17) -- A roadside bomb containing deadly sarin nerve agent exploded near a U.S. military convoy, the U.S. military said Monday. It was believed to be the first confirmed finding of any of the banned weapons upon which the United States based its case for the Iraq war.

    Two people were treated for ''minor exposure,'' but no serious injuries were reported.

    The deadly chemical was inside an artillery shell dating to the Saddam Hussein era that had been rigged as a bomb in Baghdad, said Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, the chief military spokesman in Iraq.

    The Bush administration cited allegations that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction as a main reason for launching the war in Iraq last year, but no evidence of such weapons has been found.

    Since the war ended, the U.S.-led coalition has found several caches that tested positive for mustard gas but later turned out to contain missile fuel or other chemicals.



    WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!!!!!!! they called them insecticides instead of nerve agents but why were they found in an underground camoflaged bunker next to an armements factory? why were mustard gas residues found puluting the euphrates? what do you call the organic toxins found hidden in a scientists home in small vials? and what is this shell filled with sarin???? no evidence????? bang bang bang bang (sound of me hitting head on desk...)

    update: fox reporting that at least 1 gallon of sarin was in this shell.

    a call to kill all non-Muslims  

    Berg video called how-to-kill demo
    Translator-expert sees jihadist message to Muslims worldwide


    Posted: May 17, 2004
    1:00 a.m. Eastern

    © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com

    The Arabic message accompanying the video images of the beheading of 26-year-old Nick Berg by terrorists in Iraq is being described by a translator and expert in Islam and the Quran as a "how-to" training tape for the murder of non-Muslims by other terrorists around the globe, Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin reports.

    Whether President Bush is right and the assassin and speaker is al-Qaida ally Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Joel Cohen, with a master's degree in Semitic languages from Princeton University and a student of the Quran at the University of Chicago, translated and analyzed the speech delivered following the killing – explaining it is a call for similar acts of slaughter against infidels. The grisly film included a statement, signed off with Zarqawi's name.

    The CIA last week said Zarqawi was probably the one who beheaded Berg.

    "The author of the text makes reference to the ‘patience' of slaughtering," Cohen tells G2 Bulletin, the premium, online intelligence newsletter published by the founder of WorldNetDaily. "Nick Berg is just an example."

    While parts of the video of the gruesome murder of the American radio tower contractor have been broadcast internationally, strangely the Arabic message accompanying it has not been scrutinized by the Western media. While many have heard Berg introduce himself and his family, fewer have heard the longer, Arabic-language message from the killers.

    Cohen points out that, surprisingly, the message has little to do with Berg.

    "The author goes at great pains to convince the Ummah (the body of Muslim believers) that the time for negotiations with unbelievers is over," explains Cohen, who adds the address was carefully crafted rather than delivered impromptu.

    He believes the author of the text is an imam or scholar or someone who studied in a maddrassa.

    "Are you not fed up with the jihad of the conferences and the battles of giving sermons?" the speaker said. "Has the time not come for you to lift the sword with which the master of the messengers was sent?"

    Cohen believes this reference to Islamic conferences is ridiculing the notion that holy war can be waged with sermons and teachings alone.

    "He uses this as a pun," suggests Cohen. "Jihad is supposed to be for the purpose of killing the non-believers and the scholars are using it simply to kill their own ideas. The battles of giving sermons is another pun: The scholars are putting the battle in words when it needs to be in real life in their hands."

    Cohen continues: "This is a full call to arms: Lift the sword. The 'master of the messengers' refers to Allah, that is, in the writers mind all the messengers of the past were given the ability to fight the non believers and so to the Ummah has it today."

    "And we hope, that you will not place yourself in a dilemma (after seeing) what we will do, as you usually do to please the American," continues the Arabic speaker in the tape..

    Cohen believes he is clearly offering direction about the way of jihad today – through the example of beheading Berg.

    The author introduces his soliloquy by demonstrating he is not nationalistic in his approach, but rather honoring Islam, says Cohen. It is a religious salutation – one designed to show he sees himself as a champion of Allah.

    He cites Surah Al Tawbah 9.5 of the Quran, a verse dealing with the battle between the Mushriq (non-believers or pagans) and the Ansar (believers), says Cohen. He is addressing only the Ummah, the body of Muslim believers. It is not a message for non-Muslims.

    "What is about to be shown is for their benefit," Cohen explains.

    It is a message of rejoicing, glad tidings and jubilation, not one of anger, he says.

    "The tide has turned, and like the battle of Badr, where Muslims were outnumbered, Allah has given them victory," he says. "Two reasons are given for this rejoicing: The daylight has now come forth, and the winds of victory have come upon them."

    All the glory is given to Allah in the message, Cohen says. The victory is at hand was predestined. The author of the message, he says, is aware that some in the Islamic world are uncomfortable with seeing pictures of Muslims tie bodies around cars and dragging them through the streets of Fallujah.

    "The author wishes to comfort those fears and explain that this all was planned in advance and that instead of being uncomfortable, people should rejoice," he says.

    The speaker also directly addresses young people in the maddrassas who are watching the jihad across the world – simply studying Islam on the sidelines and not joining in the killing.


    finish the rest of the translation


    so its exactly as I said in previous posts it is being billed as a human sacrifice to thier demi-god and they want all muslims to identify with them and start a massive human sacrifice, because its what thier "god" wants.

    :message to muslims, dont beleive these savages, they would have you beleive god wants you to engulf the world in a war to murder a billion people because they dont worship the same as you do. if you are a person of goodwill towards your fellow man this message must be recognized as what it is, a message from satan. only satan would want this kind of carnage and human sacrifice. not the god of abraham, moses, jesus.
