Norwegian woman fighting jail sentence in Dubai for reporting rape – World News

Norwegian woman fighting jail sentence in Dubai for reporting rape – World News.

Another case where some libertarianism would be beneficial. Irrespective of whether European law is superior or not, who are they to tell the rulers of the emirates how to organize their societies?

Evidently their adherence to Islamic law has not hindered the development of a thriving haven for foreign businesses in Dubai. So why should they let outsiders dictate their laws?

I’m constantly surprised when people complain about being treated “unfairly” in Arab nations. There is no excuse not to know about Islamic law when traveling there and therefore no right to complain if you run afoul of it.

As long as the proponents of Islamic law keep it confined to their own nations and thereby out of Europe and nations founded on European culture, they should be free to live life as they see fit. Cruel as it may seem, that approach works best. The meddling of Western powers in the last few decades has proven this over and over.

As long as no one forces you to travel to such nations and be violated at gunpoint, you have no right to complain. Again, there are far more important things to worry about right here at home!

Iran, perceiving threat from West, willing to attack on U.S. soil, U.S. intelligence report finds (WaPo)

Iran, perceiving threat from West, willing to attack on U.S. soil, U.S. intelligence report finds – The Washington Post.

Here we go… There’s the pretext for starting yet another war on behalf of Congressional sponsors and their great friends in the middle east.

Only one question remains: How long until open conflict? Surely Obama does not want to ignore a PDB indicating a potential threat. 😉

Obama hails death of Muammar Gaddafi as foreign policy success (guardian)

Obama hails death of Muammar Gaddafi as foreign policy success | World news | guardian.co.uk.

This coming from the recipient of a Nobel peace price…

Like I’ve said many times, Obama is no better than Bush in any way. He’ll fight the same wars and threaten the same people.

60+% of US voters really did fall for that charlatan’s smoke and mirrors roadshow.

European Media Calls George W. Bush Visionary – HUMAN EVENTS

European Media Calls George W. Bush Visionary – HUMAN EVENTS.

Ironic that now that the European media finally sees some good in Bush they’re still wrong in their analysis. MSM writers really are a hopeless bunch of simpletons.

Obama reaches out to Muslims, Middle East (Washington Times)

Washington Times – Obama reaches out to Muslims, Middle East

At least the Iranians among those Muslims won’t be smiling anymore when Obama orders bombing raids on their neighborhoods. It’s only a matter of time before Iran becomes “too dangerous” for or “dear friend” Israel.

Memorial Day 2008

Today, we (patriotic Americans) remember all those who have perished in the line of duty in service of this great nation. Thank you to all you men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice a citizen could make, who knows how many are free and alive today because of what you did. We all should be grateful that you did your duty no matter what situation you found yourselves in.

On the same note, I also hope that we can stop the senseless waste of life some day. Many of those brave soldiers did not have to die, especially not for the benefit of other nations and people. It is time we restricted ourselves to only fighting when absolutely necessary for us, the United States, and for no one else. Material support is one thing, but being bled dry by another nation or people’s greed is never a sensible option.

One major, if not the major, example of this is Israel. 60 years after the establishment of the state on seized Palestinian territory, Israel has one of the best armies on the planet and is well equipped, mostly by the United States, to defend itself. So let’s let it fight for itself. If its existence in its present form is justified, no Arab leader will be able to bring about its destruction.

It may be “the only democracy in the middle east”, but is an artificially created foreign nation really worth the passing of thousands of American soldiers spread out over several decades? At what point will a US President tell them that they’ve become a cost we will no longer bear? At what point will middle eastern politics actually be taken care of in the middle east (as opposed to in Washington)?
