Did you see that EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana has urged the US to engage in direct negotiationswith Iran over Tehran’s nuclear programme and other issues? Mr Solana said he was convinced Iran wanted to talk with Washington. I bet.
Listen, the EU has proven utterly useless in its pathetic half-hearted attempts to stop the Mullahs from gaining nukes. If it wanted to, the EU could use its economic trading relationship with Iran to bring the Mullahs to their senses but hey, that might mean losing Europrofits and that ain’t going to happen. So instead, Solana bleats that the US should talk to the Tehran lunatics. Talking with Ahmadinejad and his goons is pure folly. Its like Pelosi talking to Boy Bashar in Damascus, a complete waste of time but one which suggests equivalency of power, which is seen as a humiliation of the USA in the Arab Street, and which should be avoided at all costs. The only talking with Iran should be from the business end of American missiles.
I was reading that Bobby "Boris" Pickett – he of "Monster Mash" fame, has died aged 69. It was his only hit record but in a 1996 interview with People magazine, Pickett said he never grew tired of it, although it surfaces every Halloween."When I hear it, I hear a cash register ringing," he said. His Boris Karloff impersonation is a hoot!
A 22 year old Jewish woman suffered a vicious anti-Semitic attack by two men of Middle Eastern appearance in a train station in Marseille, France on Thursday night. The attackers tore the Star of David chain from around the young woman’s neck, lifted up her shirt, painted a swastika on her stomach and then fled the scene. Local police opened an investigation into the attack but had not yet found the assailants
Middle Eastern appearance – you don’t say? Let’s hope Sarkozy wins and then moves against these vermin.
Spotted this over on Private Eye - made me chuckle - is there is any relationship between the Northern Ireland First Minister-in-waiting and the dictator of Zaire? Or is it just their sense in fashion?
Yes, we know that the Spanish Government led by little Zapatero are paella-eating castanet waving surrender monkeys. So we can’t be surprised to discover that a Spanish judge has indicted three U.S. soldiers in the 2003 death of a Spanish journalist who was killed when their tank opened fire at a hotel in Baghdad. Sgt. Shawn Gibson, Capt. Philip Wolford and Lt. Col. Philip DeCamp were charged with homicide in the death of Jose Couso and "a crime against the international community." This is defined under Spanish law as an indiscriminate or excessive attack against civilians during war. Following the incident, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell said the troops responded after drawing hostile fire from the hotel. He said a U.S. review of the incident found the use of force was justified.
But Spain is trying to curry favour with the Islamic guys still kinda upset about that pesky 1492 "tragedy of Andalusia" business. And so it will issue meaningless indictments which show the AQ guys that Spain is on its knees, ready to submit, prepared to flail at the USA. That’s what happens when Euroweenie leftists get into power.
The US says it has arrested one of al-Qaeda’s highest-ranking operatives, as he was on his way home to Iraq to plan future attacks. A Pentagon spokesman said Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi was now in Guantanamo Bay. He was heading to Iraq to take over al-Qaeda operations and possibly plot attacks on Western interests, he said
Running away from Iraq and declaring the war lost a la Reid will only ensure that AQ’s generals follow us back home. My congrats to those US forces who captured this terrorist mastermind and I hope the interrogations are brisk and effective.
Britain hearts terrorists! Oh we just LOVE ‘em. I see that two Libyan terror suspects have won an appeal against deportation from the UK in a major defeat for the government. The men, known only as DD and AS, argued they could be jailed and tortured if sent home, despite a special deal between the countries. But in the first test of the case, the Special Immigration Appeals Commission said the men could not be sent back. Sending these two dangerous terrorists back to where they came would only endanger their human rights, so we have to keep them so that they can endanger our human right life. Once again, we see how the grotesque European Convention on Human Rights creates paralysis of justice, works in favour of terrorists, and ensures that we are the laughing stock of the world. We are NOT allowed to deport terrorists because the EU says so.

THE PRICE OF REWARDING TERRORISM
You do not defeat terrorism by rewarding terrorists, regardless of how many bleeding heart liberals argue otherwise. Want to know where that flawed approach leads to?

It's available right now for ATW readers so make sure you get your copy by emailing the editor! This is the book that dissents from the herd mentality that doing wrong can lead to being right. It doesn't and this book spells out WHY.
