Thanks for pointing out this article, Falluja-Sur-Seine? by Edward Morrissey in The Daily Standard. Morrissey notes that three weeks ago — before the “riots” in France began — the Washington Post ran an article noting that France had been targeted by Islamists for the next stage in their war against Western civilization. Morrissey writes […]

The Real Global Virus

Monday, November 7th, 2005

Readers of this blog know that we’re big fans of Victor Davis Hanson. His recent essay, The Real Global Virus is more evidence why: He puts the War on Islamic fascists in a historical context unlike any contemporary writer. Hanson notes Meanwhile, Westerners far too rarely publicly denounce radical Islam for its sick, anti-Semitic, anti-female, […]

The Prince Should Stick to Polo

Monday, November 7th, 2005

According to an editorial in today’s Washington Post, Prince Charles, during a recent White House dinner, lectured President Bush on global warming (apparently he wasn’t satisfied to lecture the President on the US’s attitude towards Islam — see Neal’s post here). Speaking at a formal White House dinner, Prince Charles said that “many people throughout […]

Wake up, Europe, you’ve a war on your hands

Monday, November 7th, 2005

Wake up, Europe, you’ve a war on your hands is Mark Steyn’s latest in the Chicago Sun-Times on the “unrest” (literally — it’s hard to sleep when the “youth” are burning down your town) spreading in Europe. Steyn writes Ever since 9/11, I’ve been gloomily predicting the European powder keg’s about to go up. ”By […]

Hey Argentina, Che is Still Dead

Friday, November 4th, 2005 has this story on the anti-capitalist protests in Argentina. The “protestors” displayed this banner of Che Guevara to show their “true colors” (as if we had any doubts): This is a good time to remind everyone of these important, Internet resources : Che-burger Merchandise! (Che-burger shirts, coffee mugs, etc.) Che-Mart: where it’s all Che […]

Intifada in France

Friday, November 4th, 2005

As the New York Sun editorializes in Intifada in France, there’s a lot more to the “unrest” in France than just rioting. If President Chirac thought he was going to gain peace with the Muslim community in France by taking an appeasement line in the Iraq war, it certainly looks like he miscalculated. Today the […]

A Sad Ending, Part Two

Friday, November 4th, 2005

Please check out Deroy Murdock’s piece in today’s National Review Online entitled Missing Parks. As with my recent post, A Sad Ending, Murdock compares the civil rights leaders of the past with the so-called “leaders” of today. It’s a compelling piece.

“Lying Times”, a Followup

Thursday, November 3rd, 2005

Following up on the New York Times manipulation of a fallen soldier’s letter, please read “Lying Times” — the Mudville Gazette’s chronicles about our men and women in the military who have been victimized by the Times. Mudville recalls this post: I once noted that “There are two types of Iraq war veterans that have […]

A Sad Ending

Thursday, November 3rd, 2005

Debbie Schlussel, the beautiful and conservative blogger from D-town, reports on the funeral of Rosa Parks, the civil rights legend. As she reports, her relatives don’t seem to be endowed with the grace and vision that charactized Ms. Parks. This is evident by the sorry cast of characters that were invited to speak: Right now, […]

Prince of Wales is as Dumb as He is Ugly

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2005

Have you heard that the Prince of Wales is coming to the US to lecture us about the “merits of Islam” because we’ve been “too intolerant of the religion since September 11?” Charles, you are a pompous ASS. Why don’t you spend the next year riding the Tube sitting next to Muslim teens with backpacks, […]

Zell on the Dismal Duo

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2005

It’s like a spy thriller. Institutional rivalries and political loyalties have fostered an intelligence officer’s resentment against the government. Suddenly, an opportunity appears for the agent to undercut the national leadership. A vital question of intelligence forms the core justification for controversial military actions by the current leaders. If this agent can get in the […]

All the news that’s fit to omit

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2005

All the news that’s fit to omit is Michelle Malkin’s latest on the hypocrisy of the New York Times. Anyone reading this piece of trash is, and deserves to be, ignorant of the great work that is really happening in Iraq and the men and women in the military who are accomplishing it. This rag […]

Tuesday, November 1st, 2005
