Protocols of the elders of Dubai
|I comment on a number of American sites. During the ports imbroglio I read completely without surprise but with horrified contempt the naked racism engaged in by many on both sides.|
There were (and are) all sorts of valid criticisms to be made of that deal but what swung against it was politicians kowtowing to naked racism. I have two questions for my American readers:
How much of the US telecomms and internet structure is controlled by Israeli firms - Do you have the answer to that? I do, and I know damned well that the only reason that why similar revolting tactics weren't used on Israeli investors is because they'd blow up in the faces of those trying the anti-semitic card, and rightly so.
How much of airline security is controlled by Israeli firms who for very good reason are the best there is in the world at preventing hijackings - Do you have the answer to that? I do and I know damned well that the only reason that why similar revolting tactics weren't used on those Israeli businessmen is because they'd blow up in the faces of those trying the anti-semitic card and rightly so. .
Here's the way it is. Americans are damned quick to assume they can take over other people's assets. It's a two way street and American self-indulgence has put America and Americans in the situation where you need foreigners to prop up an unearned lifestyle. You've put yourselves in the situation where you need foreigners most notably the Arabs and the Chinese to pump money into America more than they need to do the pumping. Earlier generation made huge sacrifices to get the US to where it is. They did it with courage, decency, and a hell of a lot of hard work, if they wanted something they made sure they could afford it. That's not the way things are now.
Here's a little song for you translated from "furrin" to "amurkin":
We own all your helmets.
We own all your shoes.
We own all your weapons.
Touch us and you'll lose.
Get used to it.
Now go read this and then this and then this.

Jumblatt says Berri's fibbing.
Jumblatt also says that Washingtom should pressurise Babby more.
Lahoud says he'll serve out his term.
Babby says he's thrilled skinny that they're talking.
Daddy's ghost says "you're no son of mine."
Hizb are doing a Heston.
In not completely unrelated news looks like it was two mercenaries in Basrah.

Will some nice American for the love of jaysus
|Take a baseball bat to John Bolton and then proceed to do the same to the rest of the US administration. |
"It is unusual for an administration official to go into detail about possible military action against Iran. To produce significant amounts of enriched uranium, Iran would have to set up a self-sustaining cycle of processes. Mr Bolton appeared to be suggesting that cycle could be hit at its most vulnerable point.
Update: And this is supposed to increase NATO's security? How exactly?
I begin to wonder whwther I shouldn't just rename this blog to "Ohfuck" and have done with it.
