Hot Air offers a two part audio/visual report on Hezbollah in Latin America. I found it to be a good detective story. A graduate student at Stanford University gets an email inviting him to support Hezbollah in Latin America. At first he thinks it a joke but later investigates and finds Islamic evil at work in unlikely places. This is a fine example of Web-based citizen journalism.
You can learn more about Hezbollah's Canadian and American criminal enterprises by reading this article in the Globe and Mail.
James Lileks offers another hilarious piece of satire in which he imagines how things would have worked out if America had responded to 9/11 with diplomacy and restraint.
I have of late seen an upsurge in Bolshevik agitation and propaganda in the online Middle Eastern press. Shooting the Messenger by Gareth Porter in the Asia Times Online provides an excellent example. Porter has had an interesting career. He is the proud member of a small group of Leftist public intellectuals who were enthusiastic supporters of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. Porter went further than most by denying the Cambodian holocaust in which approximately one out of four Cambodians died. He is also known for denying the Communist massacre of civilians in Hue during the Viet Nam War. He is a former member of the Institute for Policy Studies, a hard Left organization founded by Communists and heavily involved in a host of projects aimed at advancing Socialism and bringing America low. Both the Asia Times Online and Middle East Online increasingly resemble Bolshevik propaganda organs. Will we never be rid of these people?
Robert Kaplan in the Wall Street Journal reviews the situation in Iraq and the rest of the Middle East with 20/20 hindsight. In criticizing America's conduct in the aftermath of the war Kaplan tacitly assumes that we could easily have figured out beforehand how messy the occupation could prove to be. Notably absent from the public record are dire warnings of what lay ahead.
Seventy-five barking mad moonbats have at least two things in common: they are current or former university professors and they claim that 9/11 was a neoconservative operation. Read more in the Daily Mail.
The evil Palestinians are feeling the financial squeeze and looking askance at Hamas. What to do? Stop blowing people up while preaching and teaching hatred. Work to build a viable economy and respectable rump state in Gaza and infidel largesse will once again gush forth. That is, of course, asking too much. The Christian Science Monitor has more.
J.R. Dunn in The American Thinker provides a list of things America can do to intimidate Iran. Some make sense while others are absurd. Armchair generals whose intelligence consists of news reports and who have no grasp of domestic and international political constraints are prone to fantasy.
John Podhoretz examines Bush's last major public speech and finds in it reason to believe that war with Iran is inevitable. The New York Post has his analysis.
Tony Blankley examines the history of appeasement and finds it is sometimes a useful tool. It is also a recipe for disaster when used to deal with imperialist ambitions. Read more here.
Peter Worthington in the Toronto Sun delivers a sound thrashing to the Canadian cut-and-run crowd.
Democrats have their panties in a bunch over a forthcoming TV 9/11 docudrama. It portrays the Clinton administration in an unfavorable light. Clinton has demanded that it not be aired until edited to his satisfaction. Noel Sheppard in The American Thinker defends the miniseries. LGF has much more.
Michael Medved at Townhall.com thoroughly discredits the bizarre notion of "proportional" warfare.
One in six Londoners prefer Muslim-free public transportation. No surprise there. AFP has the story. Who in his right mind would want to sit next to someone who looks like a Muslim and has a backpack on his lap?
A Sudanese newspaper editor has lost his head over a bit of blasphemy. Allah be praised!
Finally, from the Onion a satirical piece that has worn well.
