Snakes on a Mother F'n Flying Machine

Say old chap, have you perhaps seen that new film Snakes On A Flying Machine. It's quite riveting. Check out the gams on that passenger. It would be great if someone would develop talking pictures so we could hear the actors.

RPG Motivational Posters

I never got into D&D and role playing games. In college some friends would sit around the cafeteria table on Monday's at breakfast telling stories of their adventures the night before. I did roll a Shadowrun character once, but the group never got to the point of playing. There is, though, my affection for the game nethack. So I get a lot of these takes on those ubiquitous motivational posters.

My favorites here

Ohio Man Living Ace of Spades Lifestyle™

An Ohio man was living out the Ace of Spades Lifestyle™, but got caught. Last night the gentleman entered a grocery store and "allegedly put two cans of beer down his pants". The kicker though is that "he allegedly exposed himself to employees". Keep on keeping on!

America Supports Israel

Ron at Dean's World has a good post on the support America shows for Israel in response to an outpouring at a Sean Hannity freedom concert. This quote, "They (on the right) know what Israel means and how the hatred for it is the same hatred that the wicked, the jealous, the barbarous have for America.", sums up my support for Israel. Below is an excerpt, but read the whole thing.

There has never been a country, in the long exile of the Jews, that has been more kind to the Jews than the United States of America. Where would Israel be without America? More important: Whither the Jewish people who live there? How many times has America stood by Israel?

This is not because of a Jewish lobby. There was no lobby at Six Flags. Conservatives and especially evangelical Christians have sincerely taken on the cause of Israel as their own. (Interestingly, the non-Jewish libertarianesque types in the Blogosphere I know best, Dean and Glenn Reynolds, are also strongly pro-Israel; I don't think libertarianism, as such, is necessarily inclined one way or the other.) We're talking about Sean Hannity... Oliver North... David Limbaugh. Not the matzah ball crowd. Not on the AIPAC Chanukah list.

Satire or Editorial

The Left is becoming harder and harder to write satire about. Rush has created a PSA asking the Left to pull back from the edge a bit so he can continue making parodies. Here is the latest example. I'm going to show excerpts from a recent liberal column and from a satirist's column. It's up to you to decide which is which.
"Israel has had a long history of responding to attacks on its people, and what do they have to show for it? More attacks! Israel seems to have missed an essential fact about the area in which they live: It's full of Muslims. Grass is green, the sky is blue, and Muslims live in corrupt dictatorships and murder people. That's just how things are. Does Israel really think they can solve that with violent attacks against the violent? That's madness. Israel should have known that, by their location, they were essentially agreeing to get murdered every so often; anything else is cultural ignorance. But, by joining our voices in a cry of condemnation, maybe we can wake Israel up to the fact. We'll have to shout loud for them to hear us over Hezbollah's bombs, but they have to hear us now.

...Israel is at war and surrounded by millions of people who want them dead, so what they need most right now is our criticism. Let's remind them who were the ones who decided to be Jews where they are not wanted so maybe they'll realize their folly and stop the aggression. Then we will finally have peace in the Middle East (as long as you don't count Muslim violence – but who does?)."

"The greatest mistake Israel could make at the moment is to forget that Israel itself is a mistake. It is an honest mistake, a well-intentioned mistake, a mistake for which no one is culpable, but the idea of creating a nation of European Jews in an area of Arab Muslims (and some Christians) has produced a century of warfare and terrorism of the sort we are seeing now. Israel fights Hezbollah in the north and Hamas in the south, but its most formidable enemy is history itself.

This is why the Israeli-Arab war, now transformed into the Israeli-Muslim war (Iran is not an Arab state), persists and widens. It is why the conflict mutates and festers. It is why Israel is now fighting an organization, Hezbollah, that did not exist 30 years ago and why Hezbollah is being supported by a nation, Iran, that was once a tacit ally of Israel's. The underlying, subterranean hatred of the Jewish state in the Islamic world just keeps bubbling to the surface. The leaders of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and some other Arab countries may condemn Hezbollah, but I doubt the proverbial man in their street shares that view.

...Another gifted British historian, Tony Judt, wraps up his recent book "Postwar" with an epilogue on how the sine qua non of the modern civilized state is recognition of the Holocaust. Much of the Islamic world, notably Iran under its Holocaust-denying president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, stands outside that circle, refusing to make even a little space for the Jews of Europe and, later, those from the Islamic world. They see Israel not as a mistake but as a crime. Until they change their view, the longest war of the 20th century will persist deep into the 21st. It is best for Israel to hunker down."
It's hard to tell. They could come from either and you wouldn't know the difference. The first excerpt comes from Frank J. at IMAO, a great little humor site. The second one is from Richard Cohen, in the Washington *BLEEP*.

Imagining No Israel--The Daily Kos

Ace is discussing a Daily Kos diarist's post imaging no Israel. To be fair, some of the dKos crowd are replying how wrong that is. One of Ace's commenters, caspera, has a great response that needs to be seen. Sure, Ace has way more readers than I, but it is buried in the comments. I don't know if caspera blogs, but I thought this needs to get out.
"The world let the Jews down and the Arab States have let the Palestinians down."

A pretty reasonable sentiment for Daily Kos, but it is still pretty wrongheaded, I think.

Here is the crux of the problem as I see it: Islam's notion that once land is Islamic, a good Muslim must wage war to regain it for the Caliphate. The logic of this philosophy leads ineluctably to perpetual war against Israel. The Arabs consider Israel to be Muslim land and want to regain it, but every time they have tried to do so openly, they get their asses kicked. Solution: fight a proxy war and radicalize your proxies to carry on the fight indefinitely. The Palestinians are a 190 proof distillation of the Islamist desire to get that land back. If the other Arab States weren't there, it would merely be 120 proof. It is because Israel is the only non Muslim country in the Middle East, that it is like a bone in their throat.

The Palestinians have been given one of the most badass patches of real estate on planet Earth. If the Palestinians were not radical Muslims, say they were Sicilian-American mobsters to take a classier more high-minded caste of people, Gaza would have casinos and bikini-clad hotties drinking umbrella drinks on their beautiful beaches and would be doing booming business with Israel and they wouldn't be worrying about the Arab States "letting them down." It would be a Middle Eastern Monaco. Instead, since Islam preaches no bikinis, no drinks, no fun, but please do kill the Jews, and wage perpetual war against the infidel, and reclaim that land for Dar Al Islam, Gaza is doomed regardless of what the other Arab States do.

Egyptians can comfort themselves with the knowledge that they don't have to join the jihad since they are already in Dar Al Islam. Palestinians don't have that luxury. They must wage jihad. Islam itself, not the Arab States, really, let the Palestinians down.

We can't really admit that this is what's going on in "Palestine" because that admission leads us ineluctably to the unpleasant discussions in the other threads below. Caliphate and Ummah are some of the scariest words in the English language, or whatever language they come from. They're like Borg, but worse because it's real.

A few lefties try to imagine a world without Israel because that fantasy relieves the pressure on their brains like a shunt. I think lefties are unwilling to face the following unpleasant fact: rich white people are gonna have to put the smack down on some poor brown people, and the poor brown people are the ones who are actually causing all the trouble for a change. Liberals and lefties with great justification fought White racism in the US, but they seem to be unprepared to accurately identify friend and foe outside the US Civil Rights paradigm. Seriously. I think when lefties imagine no Israel, they are actually saying, "I am so morally vain that I would prefer that all the Jews in Israel be transported elsewhere so that I don't have to rethink my worldview. It's more convenient for me." I might be wrong on this, but that's the sense I get.

False Alarm

Sure, it sounded too good to be true and I was trying to help get Frank some credit as a source. Via Pajamas Media is a good round-up at Fausta's blog. Maybe the rumors got started by the announcement of a post-Castro transition plan.
U.S. Unveils Post-Castro Transition Plan

WASHINGTON, July 10 (UPI) -- U.S. President George Bush Monday approved a comprehensive report on how the United States would assist a possible transition to democracy in Cuba.

The 93-page report outlines a strategy in which the United States would help facilitate the transition following the death of Fidel Castro, who has led the communist island for more than 40 years.

The report includes details of how $80 million program 'will support the Cuban people as they transition from the repressive control of the Castro regime to freedom and a genuine democracy,' said a White House statement released Monday.

Castro turns 80 in August.

The report also details how the Bush administration plans to tighten longstanding sanctions against Cuba and thwart the delivery of aid to groups with ties to the present Cuban government.
On a related note. If your Che T-shirt is becoming threadbare from attending too many anti-war rallies, Al Zarqawi's mom has a replacement for you. The old image of Che has been replaced with a current terrorist. You don't want to be living in the past do you?

Castro Dead?

Good news! I saw at IMAO that Frank read that Jonah Goldberg heard from someone who heard from someone else that Fidel Castro is dead.

3 Charged With Stealing Coca-Cola Info

"Three people have been arrested and charged with stealing confidential information from The Coca-Cola Co. and trying to sell it to rival PepsiCo Inc., federal prosecutors said Wednesday." Pepsi just needs to convince the New York Times Al Qaeda Intelligence Service that the Coke secrets are vital for national security and/or if they got out Bush would be hurt. Sad that these three will be prosecuted worse than the SWIFT leakers.

Now Jihad Is In The Constitution

From the latest Mark Steyn column:
There are several ways to fight a war. On the one hand, you can put on a uniform, climb into a tank, rumble across a field and fire on the other fellows' tank. On the other, you can find a 12-year-old girl, persuade her to try on your new suicide-bomber belt and send her waddling off into the nearest pizza parlor.

The Geneva Conventions were designed to encourage the former and discourage the latter. The thinking behind them was that, if one had to have wars, it's best if they're fought by soldiers and armies. In return for having a rank and serial number and dressing the part, you'll be treated as a lawful combatant should you fall into the hands of the other side. There'll always be a bit of skulking around in street garb among civilian populations, but the idea was to ensure that it would not be rewarded --that there would, in fact, be a downside for going that route.

The U.S. Supreme Court has now blown a hole in the animating principle behind the Geneva Conventions by choosing to elevate an enemy that disdains the laws of war in order to facilitate the bombing of civilian targets and the beheading of individuals. The argument made by Justice John Paul Stevens is an Alice-In-Jihadland ruling that stands the Conventions on their head in order to give words the precise opposite of their plain meaning and intent. The same kind of inspired jurisprudence conjuring trick that detected in the emanations of the penumbra how the Framers of the U..S Constitution cannily anticipated a need for partial-birth abortion and gay marriage has now effectively found a right to jihad -- or, if you're a female suicide bomber about to board an Israeli bus, a woman's right to Jews.
Can't say it any better.

(h/t Jonah via the Corner)
