Jill Carroll has been FREED!

Filed under: Middle East,Terrorism — thricearmed @ 4:59 pm

Jill Carroll, an American journalist working in the Middle East, was kidnapped and held by a terrorist organization that threatened to kill her. However, for some reason, they have released her, and she is more or less undamaged.

Even a Stopped Clock is Right Twice a Day

Filed under: Democrats,Middle East — thricearmed @ 9:13 pm

The UAE port deal is one of the few issues that I happen to agree on with the Liberals. You’ll notice that I say “happen to,” not simply “agree with.” The reason I say that is that the Dems are merely against it because Bush proposed it and also because they are anti-everything. Eventually, if you disagree with everything a politician does, you’ll be right about something. So it’s important to not use the old ad hominem fallacy of assuming “The Democrats are crazy. The Democrats are against X policy. Therefore, we should be for C policy.”

Having said that, we must also be careful not to necessarily take what any politician, Republican or Democrat, says at face value. Almost all politicians, even the most honest, have some enemies whom they would happily destroy politically. You don’t get to thetop anymore by being super-honest, sorry to say.


Sorry if my posting schedule is a little erratic. It will be until school lets out, and will probably come in spurts on the weekends even then.

It’s Cox and Forkum Day!

On the spur of the moment, I have decided to put up a few C&F cartoons from their archives. Enjoy!


P.S. Look at the date on each cartoon. I think C&F must be clairvoyant or something.

“Rice Warns Cartoon Protests Could ‘Spin Out of Control'”


Pardon me for saying, but I would suggest that they already have spun out of control

Cox and Forkum Sum Things Up

This Cox and Forkum cartoon was posted on their site in September of ’04, but it seems very pertinent now as well.


Understanding Ahmadinejad

Filed under: Islam,Middle East,War — thricearmed @ 5:05 am

Iranian President and ex-terrorist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seems, to the rational person, to be tickling a sleeping tiger. He is trying his level best to bring the wrath of the most powerful countries in the world down on his head. Why? Just to bolster his self-esteem? No, the reason seems very clear. He thinks, or wants Muslims to think, that he is the Mahdi. He believes that with the entire Muslim world at his back he can have world conquest and final destruction of the infidels. He wants power, money, fame. He is a megalomaniac. And if he gets nuclear weapons, he may very well be able to terrorize half the world into joining the ranks of the conquered.

If we do not fight, with the pen and with the dollar, then he has an excellent chance. Bloggers, investors, government officials, fight, fight for the liberty and happiness of millions. Fight for the memories of those we are too late to save. Fight for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Michelle Malkin: NOW THEY WANT A TRIAL

The Islamic clerics who incited these riots are going secular. Since the threat of destruction in the life to come is not enough to quiet the citizens of the Great Satan et al., they now must threaten imprisonment and destruction in the current life.

Ahmadinejad, Israel, and “Fairy Tales”

Filed under: Islam,Middle East — thricearmed @ 6:52 pm

“Other nations,” eh? Gee, I wonder who he could possibly be talking about. Couldn’t be Iran, Syria, Egypt, Pakistan, or Jordan. Oh no, couldn’t be, they follow the Religion of Peace.
