Even The Escapes Are No Longer Escapes

Somebody has committed an impeachable offense with some very leftward signs littering the landscape.

Ports Transaction

Yahoo News:
[...] Bush said sternly he would not back down.

"They ought to listen to what I have to say about this. They'll look at the facts and understand the consequences of what they're going to do," he said. "But if they pass a law, I'll deal with it with a veto."
[emphasis mine]
This is baffling indeed. Now, what do you suppose Bush was told would happen if the deal did not proceed? Consequences? What consequences are you talking about, Mr. Bush? Disruption to the oil supply? Price hikes? Currency problems? Let's have the facts.

Never A Dull Friday

Feeling Nostalgic For Simpler Times?

Come to think of it, it was inevitable wasn't it?
"Those Were The Days"

Boy, the way Osama prayed. Jihads made the Jews afraid.

Guys like us, we had it made. Those were the days.

Didn't need no failing state. Everywhere we killed debate.

Gee, our old Ca-mel ran great. Those were the days.

And you know who you were then. Girls were veiled and men were men.

Mister, we could use a man like Gamal Nassar again.

People seemed to be content. Fifty rhiyals got you bent.

Freaks were in a nomad's tent. Those were the days.

Take a little Friday spin, go to watch the swordsman grin.

Have yourself a dandy day that reminds you never to sin.

Tempers were short and burkhas were long. Ours sons turned into living bombs.

I don't know just what went wrong. Those Were The Days.

Burn, Bilal, Burn

Via AOL News:
JAKARTA, Indonesia (Feb. 19) - Hundreds of Muslims protesting caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad tried to storm the U.S. Embassy on Sunday, smashing the windows of a guard post but failing to push through the gates. Several people were injured.
Right on cue. Philippines is next I think. Come on Islamists, you're really starting to bore us. OK, already, we know flags and cars and buckets of chicken and plastic statues burn. But this riot gig of yours is getting old. How about next time you purge some real evil western infrastructure? Show us the true depth of your anger by burning:
  • your televisions
  • your radios
  • your cellphones, and
  • your personal computers
What better way to demonstrate how little you need the west by disposing of these vial creations of Satan?

16 Dead In Nigerian Khartuhn Riots

At least 16 people were killed and 11 churches burned on Saturday in violent protests against the cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad in northern Nigeria, police said.
The article goes on to state that Denmark has lost a major contract in Nigeria because of the cartoons.

9 Foreign Oil Workers Abducted in Nigeria

China and Iran hope to conclude a multi-billion dollar oil-and-gas deal in coming weeks, with a Chinese delegation of top economic-policy makers planning a trip to Iran possibly next month to help finalize the transaction, the Wall Street Journal said.
Militants launched attacks across Nigeria's troubled delta region Saturday, blowing up oil installations and seizing nine foreigners, including three Americans. The violence cut the West African nation's crude oil exports by 20 percent.
Shell said it had also evacuated an oil platform off its Atlantic coast as a precaution, shutting off an additional 115,000 barrels a day.
More on this developing story here.

20% cut in Nigerian oil production. No additional capacity in global supply. Prices are on the way back up.

Hubbert's Peak

December 16, 2005 was a watershed for mankind, although we didn't know it at the time. At least, that's the case according to this article:
The world peak would then happen when 1.0065 trillion barrels have been produced (half of 2.013). Following Hubbert, I used the Oil & Gas Journal end-of-year production numbers. It isn't that the Oil & Gas Journal reports are divinely inspired; their methodology is well explained and their reports constitute a relatively consistent data set. The cumulative world production at the end of 2004 was 0.9812 trillion barrels and at the end of 2005 it was 1.00748 trillion. During the year, we passed the halfway point. The graph shows the date of the crossover: December 16, 2005.
Time to do some research on the 100 mile diet. Whoever it was that dumped those carp into Lake Ontario were visionaries I tell you.

New Identity Theft Threat

Dutch passport biometrics cracked?:
[...] an attack can be executed from around 10 metres and the security broken, revealing date of birth, facial image and fingerprint, in around two hours. Riscure notes that that the speed of the crack is aided by the Dutch passport numbering scheme being sequential.

Follow The Wheat Reprise

Oh oh. It's not looking like a good year for wheat monopolies. Allegedly there were kickbacks to Saddam during the oil-for-wheat programme.

Could be that the books of wheat boards are going to get a good looking-over. Hope everything is in order!

Say, isn't is darn cold out there in Saskatchewan all of a sudden. What a strange winter it's been!

Damned If We Do, Damned If We Don't, So We Might As Well

The MSM need not spend too much time worrying about whether abstaining from reporting the cartoons (by publishing them) on the basis of whether it will aid or hinder the Islamist cause - they are damned if they do, and damned if they do not:
  1. publishing the cartoons will only play into the hands of the Islamists - "see brothers, there is the proof that the West hates muslims, just as we have told you in school these past years, praise be Allah calls upon you to bomb them everywhere", thus increasing the leverage the Islamists have over the muslim masses

  2. not publishing the cartoons will play into the hands of the Islamists - "praise be, we have beaten them back on the media front, let us continue with a strategy that is working and advancing our agenda"
Now, what if the cartoons agitate the Islamists such that they step up activities against Canadian soldiers? Good, I say, let them come out from under their rocks where we can put them in the crosshairs and eliminate them. Let their ire be the instigation of their demise. We are not there to 'keep the peace'. We are there to help exterminate the intractible forces that would return the Taliban to power. Exterminate. Provoking them out of their hiding holes is a good thing.

Reporting on the cartoons while not publishing because they might offend some muslims I can understand. I have no wish to offend muslims. Just as, say Global TV, or CTV, or City TV have no wish to offend the sensitive among us with their content, and they thus preface such content with warnings. Freedom of speech also means freedom to not speak. But this is a tempest in a teapot. At stake is the responsibility of the press to inform the public of real and present dangers.

Many moral equivalence counter arguments float the straw man about cartoons of Christ or Mary. Recall the Nazi Pope cartoon at the Rabble. As far as I know, although there was plenty of protest and outrage, no cars were burned, no planes flown into office buildings, no crowded buses blown up, no wedding parties vaporized, no fast food stores burned, no signs calling for the beheading of the cartoonist hoisted in front of the media cameras, no children decorated with explosives and marched into checkpoints, no oil wells torched, no shoes exploded over the Atlantic, no women hanged in public or stoned to death, no embassies stormed, and no film directors murdered. To equate the protesting style of muslims with Christians is an insult to both.

The media are justified in reporting the cartoons so that the people of the democratically free west have the information they need to assess for themselves the risk that radical Islam poses to them and their families and their society in general. They need to judge for themselves whether the response of radical Islam is in balance with the degree of the offence, and therefore be able to judge for themselves whether the threat posed by radical Islam is one that can be safely ignored, or must be dealt with.

The MSM, by suppressing this information, is making the decision for us that the threat of radical Islam will abate in due course of its own accord. Doing so is highly irresponsible.

Freedom of Speech Eroded in Germany

Well, that didn't last long did it? My feeble attempt to ignore Islam for a week, I mean. The poor Germans have run a cartoon of their own, sans Mohamed, that has the Iranians all in a twist.

What's next? Riots if western media print stories about Islamic suicide bombers? What is the next taboo?

If we keep up with the fear of Islam reprisal thing, pretty soon we're going to have ourselves right where they want us.

Why Do Some Muslims Hate Motor Vehicles So Much?

So, now the irrational Islamists are burning cars in Pakistan. Auto insurance rates over the world are going up for places names starting with 'P' - Paris, Pakistan,...

As an experiment, we in the West should voluntarily drop the whole issue, and see what happens in Islam. Will the riots stop? Or, as I predict, will they quiet down in one spot and start up in another - for instance, Indonesia.

I'm going to ignore Islam for a whole week, if I can. Of course, I am assuming that the terrorist worms won't spawn another incident in order to foment more unrest that will force me to comment.

CNN is reporting from Pakistan. I'll bet they already have crews on their way to Jakarta.

This Week's Islamic Brain Teaser

Hand-wringing multicult Liberal lefties, quick, what does an Islamic protester in Paris, call someone carrying a handmade flag of Denmark?

Answer here.

That's right! They are called a homosexual!

Get it? To be inclusive, you must include groups that use sexial-orientation epiphets to insult others you also want to include. This is like Godel's theorem of multicult inclusiveness.

First leftie to have guessed correctly wins all-expenses paid vacation in the Islamic Theocracy of their choice. Burkhas not included.

Additional insights.

Iran Calling

Let's just hypothesize for the moment that Iran is using the Danish KharThuns to divert attention away from the resumption of their uranium enrichment programme, and in particular, Denmark was targeted because of its current unique status within the UN Security Council. Recall that the IANA threw up its hands last week and announced it would refer the matter to the UNSC.

If this hypothesis is correct - it's not entirely far-fetched - then, what does this tell us about the lines of communication between the Iranian theocracy and the fifth column in the West who can organize protests in Europe and now in North America?

Surely these are known and monitored by security services. I have every confidence that Stockwell is paying attention and will ignore the hue and cry from the rabble. With Minister Day in place, I have far more confidence in Canada's role against Terrorist Islam than I did with the Screecher.

Towards Understanding What The Fundamentalist Muslims Want


"Many times I tried to rationalize the kind of Islam I was practicing by saying to myself, well, you are not too far out. After all, there are verses in the Quran about love, peace, forgiveness and compassion. You only need to ignore the part about jihad and the killing of the non-Muslims. I went to every interpretation of the Quran trying to avoid jihad and killing non-Muslims, yet I kept finding support of the practice. The scholars agreed that Muslims should enforce jihad on infidels (those who reject Islam) and renegades (those who leave Islam). Yet jihad was not in harmony with other verses that spoke of living at peace with others. All the contradictions in the Quran were really causing a problem for my faith. I spent four years to earn my bachelor’s degree, graduating second out of a class of six thousand. Then there was another four years for my master’s and three more for my doctorate—all studying Islam. I knew the teachings well.

In one place alcohol was forbidden; in another it was allowed (compare Surah 5:90–91 with Surah 47:15). In one place it says Christians are very good people who love and worship one God, so you may be friends with them (Surah 2:62, 3:113–114). Then you find other verses that say Christians must convert, pay tax or be killed by the sword (Surah 9:29 ). The scholars had theological solutions to these problems, but I wondered how Allah, almighty and all powerful, could either contradict himself so much or change his mind so much.

Even the prophet of Islam, Muhammad, practiced his faith in ways that contradicted the Quran. The Quran said Muhammad was sent to show the mercy of God to the world. But he became a military dictator, attacking, killing and taking plunder to finance his empire. How is that showing mercy? Allah, the god revealed in the Quran, is not a loving father. It says that he desires to lead people astray (Surah 6:39 , 126). He does not help those who are led astray by him (Surah 30:29) and desires to use them to populate hell (Surah 32:13).

Islam is full of discrimination—against women, against non-Muslims, against Christians and most especially against Jews. Hatred is built in to the religion.

The history of Islam, which was my special area of study, could only be characterized as a river of blood.


It is the teachings of Islam that have produced terrorists who seem capable of any kind of evil in the name of Allah. Now the whole world wants to understand what Islam teaches. A great amount of misinformation has been shared in the media and on the Internet. My goal is to help you see plainly why these people do what they do. I don’t want to motivate you to anger, however. I want to motivate you to believe—to believe for the fall of Islam and the release of its captives [...]

Chop-Chop Math

There are 1.2 billion Muslims on Earth, out of a population of 8 billion or so. That leaves us with 8 - 1.2 = 6.8 billion infidels.

So, just how long does it take to behead 6.8 billion infidels? Like any good business plan, we have to make some assumptions. Let's get a few of these done.

Let's say that 1 out of 100000 Muslims is pious, devout, and pure enough to be blessed with the honor of weilding the beheading sword. Thats 1200000000/100000 = 12000 qualified Muslim beheaders available.

In a day, a dedicated beheader must allow for sleep, prayer, eating, resting, and taking a couple of dumps. 8 hours of sleep, 2 hours of prayer, 3 hours of eating (and a bit for sword resharpening) leaves 11 hours of beheading time. If we further assume that the beheading process requires 10 minutes per infidel, allowing for staging, alignment, the holy blow, restoration of the beheading surface and handling of the infidel parts, we arrive at 6 beheadings per hour per holy beheader, for a total of 66 per day each.

That means our muslim beheaders can, in a day, on a global basis, dispatch a total of 66 * 12000 infidels during each sol, meaning purification of the Earth could proceed at the rate of 792000 per day.

Then, how long until the Earth is entirely cleaned of infidel pigs? The math is now easy, given our earlier assumptions.

6.8 billion/792000 = 8585 days (give or take). That's 23 years.

And in that 23 years, those infidel pigs will be both dying of natural causes while they await beheading (damn), and reproducing. The infidel harlots will spawn more infidel pigs, extending the operation for another possible 5 years.

That's 28 years folks.

Next time you see a Muslim holding up a 'behead the infidel' banner in downtown London or some other European centre, take them aside and review above calculations. While few can deny the visceral satisfaction to be obtained through a good infidel beheading, it's an entirely slow and inefficient process. Tell the stooge to reconsider the banner and advocate more efficient infidel cleansing methodologies. For instance, "Endless Happy Days Reruns For Those Who Insult Islam". Now we're talking terror.

Profit from the Prophet

Item 7388889372. Would look perfect on Mosque. Priced to clear at $250,000.

Really? Terrorism? Can you read that Western MSM? Your freedom of the press is 'Terrorism'. Speaking of terrorism, I wonder if this have anything to do with the KharTuhnTwa:
Moreover, Denmark has succeeded in being elected as chairman of the UN Counter Terrorist Committee (CTC) from April 2005. The CTC is subsidiary to the Security Council and monitors the individual member states' obligations to raise national capacity against terrorism, according to resolution 1373 of September 28, 2001. This brings Denmark in a central position in a world where security policy is becoming increasingly synonymous with the fight against terrorism.

More Useless Canadian Government

Tragic. The scene has a road running parallel to a canal. There is no guardrail between the road and the canal on the section where accident occured.

Surely local government could (a) plant vegetation - which appears to have saved at least one other vehicle in the past (b) put surface concrete barriers up such as those that divide traffic on the 400 series roads in the interim while they figure out how to move the canal.

I wonder how they manage to change lightbulbs in their houses?

I Hereby Blaspheme Islam

All Islamic nutbars - you are now on notice that not only did I look at the cartoons, I actually found them seriously funny and I laughed in great spasms of head-of-the-snake-of-Satan laughter.
