This man was my commander at OTS.

My kind of cookbook.

Love the Brits!

The Vatican condemns the U.S. for liberating Iraq, while warning Catholics not to marry Muslims.

I want to be an Italian police officer.

I'm afraid that the Democrat party, in its search for votes, is becoming America's party for islamofascism and anti-semititsm.

This story broke yesterday. Let's see how long it stays in the news. Let's compare how long Abu Ghraib stays in the news. Let's wonder whether the leftist media has more sympathy for Islamofascists or American citizens.

Oh, and by the way, I thought al Qaeda wasn't operating in Iraq. That there was no connection between al Qaeda and Iraq.

Update: Well, the beheading is officially off the front burner. On the same day it happened.

Wow! Twenty seven per cent of the French work force "works" for the government.

Why isn't this getting any coverage?

Why, because it's good news from Iraq, of course.

My God! Talk about cynicism.

In case you don't remember, this same John S. Carroll placed his newspaper at the service of Gray Davis in an attempt to keep Davis in office.

Certainly not the sort of person I'd trust to teach journalistic ethics.

What's the difference between Ted Kennedy and the Iraqi Air Force?

Ted Kennedy has a confirmed kill.

South of the Border,
Down Mexico Way

The lamest defence I've ever heard.

I mean, pain pill-addicted suicidal boyfriend decides to off himself slowly by drinking small doses of antifreeze over a long period of time?!??!!?!

*That* is not the way guys do things.

"It's funny," his attorney Henry Thompson said Friday, "but it's also really sad."

I wouldn't want to meet this guy down a dark alley.

This makes me pretty sad.

Not to deny the impact and horror of the photographs, which feed the very worst Islamic tropes as regards the West, but I can't help the feeling that this is turning into a bit of a feeding frenzy. The left sees a way to get at Bush, via Rumsfield, so this is only going to get worse.

It's kind of interesting to think of the contrast. Within two days of 9/11/2001 the networks had decided to stop showing the crashes and the collapse of the World Trade Center. These pictures from Abu Ghraib, on the other hand, will be with us and in our faces for months.

Americans humiliating Arabs will always get a lot more coverage than Arabs murdering Americans.

Ho hum.

Personally, I wouldn't worry too much about the "Arab Street", which is mostly the creature of repressive Arab Government leger de main.

In any event, I think we should:

- Try, convict, and imprison those soldiers who abused their prisoners
- Compensate the prisoners who were abused
- Tell the Arab world to shut the hell up until it treats *its* prisoners better
- Tell the UN that Sudan at the controls of the UN Comission on Human Rights doesn't look too good
- Tell the rest of the world to take a long walk off a short pier

Beyond that? I don't know. Hope that the Democrats don't win in November?
