Mass Kidnappings Need A ‘Let’s Roll’ Moment

In trying to comprehend the mass kidnapping in Iraq a few days ago, where educators were rounded up by terrorists wearing police uniforms, the apparent helplessness of the victims struck me.  Haven’t the Iraqi people seen enough of this kind of stuff to know when they’re in danger of becoming a victim?  When will they, or will they, have their Todd Beamer moment and say, no, you’re not doing that to us and fight back?

S.F. Board Of Education Gives JROTC The Boot

As a followup to this post, warning of the upcoming vote by the school board in San Francisco to keep or stop the JROTC program.  San Francisco ‘values’ prevailed by a 4-2 vote.  In their infinite wisdom, they chose to deprive their kids of the opportunity by killing the program.  What a shame.  Anyone heard Nancy Pelosi speak to this?

Citizenship Test, The Missing Questions

Debbie Schlussel has found the lost questions from the US citizenship test.  These are the questions that should be asked.  Here’s number one for example.

1. If a woman doesn’t want to cover her hair with a headscarf, she should be:

a) allowed to do as she pleases.
b) stoned to death, after being buried up to the neck in dirt. The woman exposed her sexy hair to men who are not her husband, so she is clearly a whore unworthy of life.
c) forced to watch PBS specials and the “ladies” of “The View.” Wearing a do-rag on my head is like way totally cool. Means I don’t have to wash or do my hair.

Iran Will Help In Iraq, Help Take It Over

Coming direct from Fantasyland comes a Christian Science Monitor story entitled ‘Can Iran help stabilize Iraq?‘  Only if Tinkerbell will wave her magic wand.  Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has his own mission, which he has made crystal clear many times. 

Stuff like . . . ‘Death to the Great Satan’ comes to mind, and, oh yeah, Israel ought to be wiped off the map, and we’re a nuclear nation so get over it, I need a nuclear bomb to protect myself from the Great Satan, and I’ll train, fund, and supply al Qaeda so they can do their deeds in Iraq, and, Hezbollah, my shadow army, is showing those Jews what bombs and missiles and explosive vests can do with some help from my buds in Syria and Lebanon, and make way for the twelfth Imam, the end is near.

Yeah, Ahmadinejad, that’s the guy who will voluntarily stop all those things from happening.  He’ll just give up everything he has been ranting about for years if we’ll only offer him a cup of coffee and a basketball signed by Michael Jordan.  Maybe a one on one with Oprah would tilt the balance in our favor?  All that speculation is not only fantasy, it is ignoring all that Mahmoud has done and is currently doing.  The tip-off is this ridiculous goal. . .

Bringing Iran – and Syria – into a regional process to stabilize Iraq is being touted both by British Prime Minister Tony Blair and the Iraq Study Group, the US commission studying options that both Republicans and Democrats hope will provide a framework for facesaving change in Iraq.  (emphasis added)

Iran and Syria are part of the problem in Iraq and in the region.  This apparent goal for a face-saving anything is a haunt from the Vietnam war.  It’s political-speak for surrender.  It means we will ‘leave’ if you ‘say’ you will help.  They have it bass ackwards.  It’s the Iranian terrorist president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that needs a face job rather than face saving.  Scott (Peterson), take your head out of the sand man.
