Most Fridays are slower than the rest of the week, so there's time to find items like the following two news bits to post. I almost always have to throw in that there are some things I disagree with 'W' on (border control, spending), or inevitably someone comes along with the usual moonbat rants that I'm nothing more than a shill for the Republican party. I'm far from a shill, but give me Republican rule any day of the week over the Democratic nanny-state. Today I'd like to take a look at the pros and cons of spreading your ass cheeks for islamic terrorists to bugger. If I didn't know the following happened in france, I would have guessed the sit-in shown below happened in San Francisco. (For those just now reading this blog, france does not have the respect needed for me to capitalize it as a proper noun) Link to the entire story here: frenchies are fried French Stage Sit-In to Protest Violence By JAMEY KEATEN Associated Press Writer PARIS Police tightened security in central Paris on Friday with riot forces and bomb squads along the Champs-Elysees, and angry residents of riot- torn suburbs staged a sit-in Friday near the Eiffel Tower, calling for an end to more than two weeks of arson and vandalism across France. The moves came as the wave of violence that spread outward from Paris's impoverished outlying neighborhoods appeared to be calming in other French cities but remained persistent in the capital. "Stop the Violence," read one banner draped on the Wall of Peace near the Eiffel Tower. Some of the 200 demonstrators _ a small turnout in protest-friendly France _ waved white flags. (More at the link above) In my opinion the story title should read: In an effort to appease terrorists, france lubes up and bends over. I also like the the mention of the white flag.... So appropriate. Alright, here's what you have: a bunch of hippy wannabes, probably singing John Lennon's Give Peace a Chance while parts of france, and other places in Europe, are torched by gangs of roving islamo-thugs. This has been coming for a long time, but france and the rest of the continent wait two weeks before doing anything. What does it feel like to be someone's biatch, Chirac? Thanks to the welfare state Europe has become, these animals believe they deserve to be fed, housed, clothed, and given jobs that allow for a month's vacation. And if they don't get what they want, they revolt, burning cars, schools, businesses, people..., citing poor living conditions, racism, etc., etc. Funny how they forget if they tried something like this in the mid-east, they'd be taken away and have their heads removed. Here's my thought: This thing could go two ways for all of Europe. 1. The worst case scenario would be the violence spreads as some kind of jihad to overtake Europe, a Crusade in reverse, if you will. This will either lead to Europe accepting muslim rule over their daily lives, or fighting back. It's hard to believe such control is possible, but when you have millions of islamic immigrants pulling together instead of assimilating into Western culture, it's more than possible. The Baltic states will then move together with the northern African nations to gain a stronger foothold across Europe and through its political system. Don't think that's possible? Take a look at the former Soviet states and the Chechen animals running wild there. Or, it could be the same scenario above, but culminating in a civil war along the lines of Bosnia, but on the scale of World War 2, with Western values versus muslim values as the war cry. God help us all if that happens since it will not be an average war, but will still have global implications. 2. The second, more hopeful prediction is france, and the other nations in Europe being affected by these terrorists, will put their boot firmly down on their necks, and break a few if necessary. But that doesn't seem to be happening. Chirac made the following statements in the article above: "...France must confront the social inequalities and prejudice that has fueled the violence..." and "There is a need to respond strongly and rapidly to the undeniable problems faced by many residents of underprivileged neighborhoods around our cities," Chirac said. "Whatever our origins, we are all the children of the Republic, and we can all expect the same rights." That doesn't sound like Chirac is going to put the boot on anyone, and really shows how far off base he is. These animals do not consider themselves as "children of the Republic." They consider themselves muslims. Capitulation during a time of war will lead to death. And believe me, despite what the media shows: a few cars burning, nobody seriously injured, calling them "troubled and restless youth", etc., the world is at war. The last thing we need in Europe is Chirac (and other European leaders) imitating Chamberlain with Hitler. The situation will go straight to hell if this spectacle is allowed to continue unchallenged.

President Bush, in the most forceful defense yet of his Iraq war policy, accused critics Friday of trying to rewrite history and charged that they're undercutting America's forces on the front lines.
"The stakes in the global war on terror are too high and the national interest is too important for politicians to throw out false charges," the president said in his combative Veterans Day speech.
"While it's perfectly legitimate to criticize my decision or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began," the president said.
Finally! Bush takes a lesson from past presidents (even though it's about 6 months late) and sets the agenda, not the media or the opposing party.
Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., quickly returned Bush's criticism.
"Its deeply regrettable that the president is using Veterans Day as a campaign-like attempt to rebuild his own credibility by tearing down those who seek the truth about the clear manipulation of intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq war," Kennedy said in a statement.
What a shame Sen. Kennedy seems to have brain freeze when it comes to facts. I'd invite him to read this. Several of his Democratic colleagues (Kerry, Clinton: Mr. and Mrs, and Reid, to name a few) voiced an opinion three years ago that parallels Bush.
"Instead of providing open and honest answers about how we will achieve success in Iraq and allow our troops to begin to come home," Kennedy said, "the president reverted to the same manipulation of facts to justify a war we never should have fought."
Teddy really should lay off the sauce. Perhaps the Senator would prefer fighting the terrorists on American soil the same way Russia, the Philippines, and Europe is now. It's statements like the ones from Kennedy that make me fear Democrats gaining control again.
