Released pending further investigation? Held until expelled from the country?

Boy THAT ought to teach them to plot murder over a handful of Mohammad cartoons! Good job of catching the plotters but letting them go is the lamest excuse for anti-terrori sm ever. Complain about Bush’s tactics all you want but if we ever adopt THIS tactic, we might as well just throw in the […]

Hey, at least they’re not trading food for children to be sex slaves…

Apparently having nothing better to do, “UN peacekeepers in the disputed African territory of Western Sahara have vandalised ancient rock paintings“. Well at least they’re keeping busy doing something destructive. Let’s hear it for the UN! Hip, hip…
This was my favorite quote from the article: “I was appalled. You’d think some of them would know […]

Chimps Not Persons, Even in Europe

A breath of legal fresh air from Austria: the high court there has rejected the notion that a chimpanzee can be considered a person for the purposes of receiving personal gifts. Don’t get me wrong, I think the impulse that drove the animal rights group to get these chimpanzees to be treated as persons in […]

Euro theocrats shut down brothel

Just kidding about the ‘theocrats’ part. A court in Amsterdam has shut down a $500/go brothel because, it is alleged, it is being run by Hells Angels, and, as the Mayor explains, prostitution exploits women and encourages crime.

No wonder the Bhutto assassin succeeded

US provided Bhutto with security intel. I guess she wasn’t paying attention to their success rate pre-Iraq war and the whole WMD thing.
Okay. Maybe that’s not fair. The article says that Ms. Bhutto seems to have failed to heed some of our advice so who knows?

What do Australia and China have in common?

At least one thing. Okay, people who don’t want their internets censored can opt out of the censorship via their internets providers but still, state mandated and enforced censorship is state mandated and enforced censorship.
It’s for the children, so ‘t’sall good!

The crisis in Darfur is as good as over

UN takes over Darfur peace force. It’s those blue helmets. Just the sight of them evokes terror in the hearts of genocidal evil-doers.
Do you think they’ll be given guns and ammunition, be allowed to fire them in defense of defenseless victims? If so, do you actually think they’ll do so?

Benazir Bhutto, former Prime Minister of Pakistan assassinated in suicide attack

I don’t pretend to know enough about these things to offer an analysis of how the assassinatio n will effect Pakistan, America-Paki stan relations, the power structure in the region or the war against militant jihad. That sort of thing is way above my pay grade. I can’t imagine that it will have no effect […]

News Agencies’ Credibility Gap

It’s not just in America but worldwide. In nations where freedom of the press is valued most highly, few believe that their news agancies are doing a good job of reporting the news fairly and without bias.
Stories like these, reported and not retracted, may be a big reason why their job performance numbers are lower […]

Some semblence of sanity shown in two countries

In Venezuela, the people narrowly defeated amendments to the Constitution proposed by President for Life wannabe, Hugo Chavez, amendments that would have removed term-limits on the office of president and which would also have strengthened socialism within the country. It was a close call.
The second bit of sanity resulted in the freeing of the British […]
