The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing -- Edmund Burke

Yeah don't get too close -we only do about $500 billion in trade with them but don't get too close-the Liberals anti American strategy didn't work too
well in the last election.People working in the lumber industry and beef industry and energy industry want cordial relations with the USA but apparently the Liberals don't.What do they care about other people's jobs?
Interview with the Urinator at the National War Memorial-remorseful,articulate and apparently well over .08- click on video interview on right....
"A few weeks ago, a historian sent me a long article about how the terrorists are fighting us by cooking up these horror stories and paying people to pretend to "witness" them. Either they "witness" U.S. atrocities or they get their heads cut off. The British in Iraq have found out that almost all of these accusations are false. I wonder how many months will have to go by until we learn that some of these accusations against our men are false.
In the meantime, how can it be that the Supreme Court is worried about the rights of Osama bin Laden's driver in court, but no one is raising a finger about the rights of Marines who offer their lives to fight for us and then get held in leg irons when there is an accusation against them? How can this be?
How can it be that in the mainstream media, you will NEVER see a soldier's photo on the front page unless he's charged with a crime, as Wlady asks."
"Multiculturalism (no culture is worse than the West’s) and its twin of cultural relativism (those with power have no right or ability to judge others) gave a wide pass to radical Islam and its 7th-century primitivism. Apparently most Leftists thought the dearth of women in the clubhouse at the Masters Tournament at Augusta National was far worse than the Arab world’s honor killings, burqas, and coerced female circumcision.
Indeed, a radical Leftist always faces a dilemma when a fellow anti-American sounds fascistic. The usual course, as we have seen since September 11, is either to keep silent about such embarrassing kindred spirits, or to weasel out by suggesting our own hegemonic tendencies pushed a once reasonable “Other” in lamentable directions."......
"NEARLY 10 months after Israel withdrew every last soldier, settler, nail and bucket from Gaza, the Hamas-led Palestinians can't seem to let go.
There is something psychologically profound about Hamas abducting to Gaza and holding hostage an Israeli soldier, 19-year-old Cpl. Gilad Shalit. You would think that the very last thing the Palestinians would want to import to Gaza is precisely the emblem of their former occupation: a soldier.
And yet, on a psychological plane, this seemingly senseless political act may be symbolically important. Perhaps without the soldier in their midst, the Palestinians in and of themselves feel no existential purpose. Perhaps they have no way to establish their own sense of destiny without the perpetual agony of conflict with Israel.
Hamas literally needs an occupier-enemy, just as released convicts who can't seem to make it on the outside intentionally commit crimes in order to be returned to prison, where they feel safer and better understand the rules."
"Military specialists will output case studies for years on how Iraq has altered the way war is waged by Americans--on the battlefield and on the home front. Most interesting to know would be whether the war as perceived at home and the war as fought daily by our soldiers in Iraq became two separate realms of consciousness, the former barely related to the reality of the latter."
"He's a crook," Grace Hancock, 80, who lost $135,000, said, seconds after the proceedings. "We're all seniors. He wanted us all dead so he wouldn't have to pay back the money."
Ingratiating himself to his victims by making home visits and attending family events, Crackower, a financial adviser, persuaded the elderly people between 1989 and 2003 to put their money in his hands. "
"If U.S. intelligence and law enforcement don't trust their Saudi counterparts to cooperate in the war on terror, why would the State Department and White House trust Saudi youth to behave themselves on college campuses? And if Riyadh is not cooperating fully with our efforts to crack down on Islamic radicals, why is Washington rewarding it with a carte blanche visa program?"
It's this type of wishy washy social engineering that led to the problems in the first place-apparently some are still in denial-they aren't stealing
jeans from a department store -they are gunning people down all over the city-deal with it instead of making excuses-there were about 300 shooting incidents last year-those who do know what's going on know there are more than a couple of dozen people causing the problems. Why are there people that choose to make excuses for gunslingers when they should be off the streets.Before a problem can be fixed , it has to be acknowledged and that reality still hasn't sunk in yet.The first duty of a government is to protect its citizens not BS them.
How many experienced Crowns are working full time on the cases? How many accused of gun crimes have had previous encounters with the law? How many on bail are repeat offenders?How many OPP and RCMP have been provided to deal with it? As long as the city has graffiti on just about every corner, they are nowhere close to addressing the problems.Instead of creating fiction, it's about time some people lived up to their responsibilities to protect the public instead of the criminals.
When you ignore a problem and don't nip it in the bud, it gets worse - a lot worse.
