Goodby, See Ya in Hell!

Hasan Akbar, the American Muslim who murdered his fellow soldiers at the start of the Iraq invasion, has been sentenced to death.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. – A military jury sentenced a soldier to death Thursday for a deadly grenade and rifle attack on his own comrades during the opening days of the Iraq invasion, a barrage that prosecutors said was triggered by religious extremism.

Sgt. Hasan Akbar, who gave a brief, barely audible apology hours earlier, stood at attention between his lawyers as the verdict was delivered. He showed no emotion.

Rot in hell you evil murderous bastard! If there is any justice to be had it’s not in your death. The justice will be in the form of your 72 virgins who may all look like fat asssed, carpet munching Rosie O’Donnell.

And another in a seeming endless string of takedowns of a John “The Baroque Candidate” Kerry speech. Cut to the chase.

Regime change is going to war, you nincompoop. It’s a lead pipe cinch your precious sanctions (you remember, the ones you libs say now were so wonderfully effective but back then were lobbying hard to do away with?) weren’t going to do it. War was the only way regime change—official policy of the Clinton admin, a policy you claim to support—was going to get done; it works that way in the real world sometimes. Well, okay: every time. Those long accustomed to absolute and unquestioned power just aren’t usually willing to give up the solid gold bathroom fixtures and rape rooms just because some stripey-pants dweeb says he oughter in front of a bunch of other warts at the UN. So: do you support the policy or don’t you, Johnny-boy? Yeah, I know, it’s a trick question.

And there is oh so very much more!

I am Puzzled

FORT BRAGG, N.C

Facing a possible death penalty for his fatal attack on fellow soldiers, Sgt. Hasan Akbar will make an unsworn statement to the jury in his own defense, a lawyer said Wednesday.

The statement by Akbar is to come Thursday, the fourth day of the sentencing phase of his court-martial, said the defense lawyer, Maj. David Coombs. Akbar was convicted last week of premeditated murder and attempted murder in the March 2003 attack on the 101st Airborne Division at Camp Pennsylvania in Kuwait.
[…]
Prosecutors have said Akbar, 34, launched the attack because he was concerned about U.S. troops killing fellow Muslims in the war.

Why am I puzzled? As a good little jihadist cut throat why isn’t he eagerly awaiting his 72 vestal virgins? His lawyer shyster has been quoted saying Akbar will fight the death penalty. So, does he not believe the jihadist rhetoric and afraid their are no virgins waiting his demise? Apparently so.

Another puzzling thing is how anyone can support this murderous bastard, but they do.

Has a Minute, or Two Passed?

P.T. Barnum is famous for having said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” A quick check of my watch tells me it’s been two minutes since I started this post. And right on time, here are two suckers.

SALT LAKE CITY – Two women claim they were bilked out of their life savings by an apocalyptic religious group that promised them land and a face-to-face meeting with Jesus Christ.

Kaziah Hancock and Cindy Stewart earlier won their lawsuit against Jim Harmston and The True and Living Church of Jesus Christ of Saints of The Last Days in a district court, but it was thrown out by a judge.

They appealed to the Utah Court of Appeals on Tuesday.

In the appeal, the women’s attorney, Don Redd, argued Harmston and the church should not be allowed to create a “religious cocoon” to protect themselves.

You may remember this same outfit claimed the world was coming to an end and only church members would survive. As I look around my immediate surroundings the world seems to be still here. How about your part of the globe?

Again I’m going lean on P.T. Barnum to provide the correct context for this story. “More persons, on the whole, are humbugged by believing in nothing, than by believing too much”

I might also add that these two idiots may find comfort in a little “Hallucinogenic Religion,” assuming they’re not already stoned out of their pea brains.

It’s International TV Turnoff Week

OK I’m behind the times, I never heard there was an International TV Turnoff Week. And I guess it’s this week based of White Dot’s website. Not being a large consumer of what television has on offer it might be interesting to see what these people are planning to celebrate such a momentous occasion.

  • Show customers they don’t have a real say over how these places are run.
  • Show owners of restaurants and cafes that TV may be LOSING them customers.
  • Start a conversation about noise pollution, image pollution and public spaces.
  • Suggest to owners they use a TV Free atmosphere to attract customers.
  • Show that ordinary customers are wise to the way TV is being pushed at them.
  • Tell people about the new and growing industry in “captive audience television”.
  • Show that ordinary customers HATE being a captive audience.

It all sounds fairly innocuous on it’s face. I had assumed “captive audience television” was a result of millions of TV automatons tuning into American Idol, but I could be wrong. Let’s look further into this groups agenda.

Remember what your favourite diner, pub or coffee shop was like before they put in the TV screens? Help us get rid of them! Add to our database of Ruined Diners and help us target them with leaflets, petitions and direct action.

Oh, oh… there’s every domestic terrorists favorite phrase, “direct action.” You know the type, the ELF’s favorite direct action is to burn down housing developments or SUV dealerships. PETA takes great pleasure in throwing simulated blood on your kids as you enter KFC, and their latest is to target the “King of Beers” and Bud Light ads.

White Dot apparently isn’t going to such physical extremes, but as you might expect they are going to be intrusive

BRITISH campaigners are to mark a global anti-television week in novel fashion, they announced on Monday – sending out a stream of activists armed with gadgets which switch off any sets within a 7-metre radius.

The campaign, organised in Britain by a group called White Dot, said its aim for TV Turnoff Week, which started Monday, was to remove television “pollution” from public areas such as pubs and bars.

A band of volunteers would be unleashed carrying the US-made TV-B-Gone gadget, which transmits a stream of infrared codes to turn off more than 1000 television models within range, the group said.

“We are going to be going into pubs and either turning off the TV and leaving information or asking people, ‘I just turned off the television. Did you notice?’,” David Burke of White Dot said.

“People may think it is intrusive for an anti-television campaigner to go into a public house (bar) and turn off the television, but a lot of people find the television intrusive.”

Why yes, it would be damm intrusive! And I suspect the TV will be turned back on (to a Manchester United game no doubt), the volume turned to the max and these idiots will be quickly shown the front door. End result? The game goes on, and a White Dot “activist” will be laying in the gutter clutching his/her electronic gadget, among other more “personnel things” (Oops, so much for having a family!) that may have been damaged in the process.

Excuse me while I unsheath my cluebat… Just because a pub is a public place doesn’t give anyone, including “TV activists,” the right to change what the owner has provided for his customers. End of story!

Well almost the end. The White Dot organization was founded in Chicago and they plan the same type of “TV activism” in and around that fine city. Imagine if you will these idiots strolling into Murphy’s Bleachers one fine afternoon and zapping the Cubs game off the TV screen. A full scale riot would ensue. Chicago’s finest would be pulling apart combatants for hours! And with luck the White Dotters won’t be having any children due to the previously discussed “damage.”

Soros Bails Out of Russia

Kommersant

Soros Development Fund announced yesterday it is selling its share-holding of KMB-Bank, the last thing that attached the famous international financier George Soros to Russia. Intesa, an Italian bank group, now owns a control stock of KMB-Bank and is going to turn it into its retail subdivision with Intesa subsidiary bank focusing on operations with corporate clients.

Strange. With Rootin Tootin Putin looking more like a commited socialist every day you’d think Soros would stick around for a while.

Maybe pissing away $26 million dollars on a “flawed candidate” put a dent in his pocket change.

Or maybe he is stuffing his Shillary piggy bank full waiting for ’08.

Flat Out Bullshit From the NYT

The New York Times: All the lies that are fit to print:

The only plausible reason for keeping American troops in Iraq is to protect the democratic transformation that President Bush seized upon as a rationale for the invasion after his claims about weapons of mass destruction turned out to be fictitious. If that transformation is now allowed to run off the rails, the new rationale could prove to be as hollow as the original one.

Just how many drugs are the NYT’s editorial board taking? One would think a statement that is so easily discredited, and fact checked, would never make it to printers ink.

No Liberal bias my aching ass.
