Why We Attempt Dangerous Rescues

The national drama about the trapped mine workers is still ongoing. With the accident today that killed 3 and injured more rescue workers many will ask themselves if the cost of the rescue operation is worth the payoff if the trapped men are recovered. This question is often asked in the military when the number […]

Trashy Media and Trashy News

I couldn’t help but notice this book cover… I’ve never seen such an outstanding example of a meaningless title before. The amazing thing is not that the title and the subtitle are in direct opposition to one another, rather that this is the sort of thing that not only sells well but is expected in political […]

Politics, Media, Synthetic Experiences

I mentioned earlier that this would be good news for the Democrats and the media types who have staked their careers on a failure in Iraq, and in fact, they are playing it up. Weirdly there’s not a lot of space to expand this story to sound worse than it is because its a fairly […]

Malleable Media

More charming words from a foreign in England. How sweet, they are trying so hard to share their culture. In other news, this girl is ready to make herself famous! Nice going, Arab Educators, your Kung Fu is definitely stronger than the Korean hate-instilling version. I’m fairly certain that while growing up in Texas if […]

Situation Normal: European Muslims Angry

Interesting idea above. Like the image posted earlier today, this is probably a surprise if your media perspective is specifically that of a typical self-loathing American or British anti-patriot. The lesson he is referring to is that you must lay down to the power of Islam absolutely or get stung for it. There are no […]

The Bloody Pendulum Continues its Swing in Europe

The Muslims figured it out: Europe is the cancer, Islam is the answer. Or at least Islam predicts this conclusion anyway… but not just about Europe (apparently Buddhists are bad too… now that’s crazy…). Coming from an American perspective, the sign this guy’s holding might not make sense — many Americans aren’t aware just how […]

Conveying Observations About Iraq and Other Garden Spots

I’ve been speaking today with several members of my battalion who recently returned from a rotation in Iraq about their feelings on which direction the country may be headed, what is working and what isn’t, and why we are where we are. Understand that their views (and mine) are generally pro-invade-Iraq, but keep in mind […]

Negotiating with Terrorists

Korea Finds Escape from Its Real Issues, Rewards Terrorists Again Instead South Koreans can rest easier knowing that their government is following many an EU member’s lead and doing something a Taliban affiliated group likes. This sounds horrible when I stop the sentence there, of course, but South Korea is trying to do only enough […]
