On Bush’s staff:

[Torture Works] End of The War Against Terror?

Posted by Lex Fear on March 15, 2007

The man behind it all has confessed – to EVERYTHING – from plotting to assassinate Pope JP II to 9/11 – proving torture works. Can we all now get back on with our lives?

Terrorism is dead, long live King George (and poodle, Tony)!

Adding a new sidekick: Mattghg, utilises the power of words and draws from deep knowledge and understanding.

Not sure how this sidekick thing is going to pan out, since I already has a links page and referrer list…

[Interesting] Selected Blog Quotes

Posted by Lex Fear on September 22, 2006

“Just as many Germans woke up after World War Two claiming they simply didn’t know what came over them, many right wing Americans are going to have to one day explain their support for a regime that attempted to justify torture.” – Kel, The Osterley Times

“For my part, I wish reporters would stop saying that people are on the ground. Troops on the ground in Afghanistan… Our people on the ground in Iraq… Where else would they be? Larking around in trees?” – Harry Hutton, Chase Me Ladies… I’m In The Cavalry

“But who’s surprised with the pro-choice culture we live in? If a mother can kill her baby just two minutes before it’s born why should it acquire the dignity to live only two minutes after?” – Jessica Clark, Dead Yet Living

“A special message to all the new readers from Daily Kos: Get lost we don’t want your type round here.” – Guido Fawkes, Guido Fawkes’ Blog

“Whilst at the DIY superstore, I carefully considered the assorted power tools before me and then proceed to pick the one I felt most comfortable performing the ‘quick-draw’ with.” – Mr Angry, I Am Livid

“Chavez is addressing Bush at a level that Bush likes to engage the world.” – Memiors of a Samurai Barber

“My quibble here is minor, but one that I think presents an important note to the conversation. Clinginess, emotional instability, a propensity toward manipulation, and an inclination toward jealousy are not actually stereotypes of women, —but are certainly stereotypes of Evil Ex-Girlfriendstm.” – The Dane, Nowhersville

“The pope has all those crazy muslim extremists with their panties in a bunch, which in turn has led to them living up to the adjective I just assigned them, which in turn has led to tons of people doing google searches involving the phrase “crazy muslims”.” – Patriot Xeno, Right Hand of God

“In the end, we have reacted out of fear, willing to do anything for a false sense of security, which is exactly what the terrorists want you to do. Acting out of fear creates chaos. What most people don’t realize is that you have always had a higher probability of dying by suicide than by a terrorist attack on U.S. soil. That includes 2001.” – Alabama Moderate (comments), The Gun Toting Liberal

“YES I know some may find it hard to believe I do believe in the BIBLE” – Mark De Hoog, Blog This

“Right I’m off to buy shoes…

Gosh that last line was camp.” – Yellow, Dark Side of the Moon Chaplaincy

“Please do not fret, for I have wondrous and magical plans for this little corner of the internet” – Reed, The Plural of Ajax

“There seems to be a trend in uniform departments to move good people constantly. Crap officers get to stay in post forever. HR deliver the usual nonsense to justify this – the infamous ‘development opportunity’. Just as you get to know the players, you are moved. This is why we stare blankly at members of the public when they try and tell us about local problems.” – Inspector Gadget, Police Inspector Blog

“The bottom line is the Pope meant absolutely no offense by his remarks and he owes no one an apology. Anyone who carefully reads his lecture can clearly see that this debate has been blown way out of proportion.” – Jimbo, The Pope Blog

[Quotey] Another Day, Another Law Passed

Posted by Lex Fear on August 16, 2006

“It is for this reason that Blair wants to introduce ID cards. He has already admitted that they do bugger all in the war against terror, but they do reassure the readers of the Daily Mail that “something is being done” about asylum seekers.” – Kel, The Osterley Times

[Reader Response] The Israel-Lebanon Crisis

Posted by Lex Fear on August 4, 2006

Teaching children to burn flags, paint bombs, or kill indiscriminately without ethical and moral objectives is a spiritual abuse. It removes the meaning and purpose behind the conflict and replaces it with hate and suffering.

Last week I posted briefly on the Israeli-Lebanon crisis and my views. You can read it here.

I received a couple of comments from Kath, who is one of the friends I’ve never met, author of In Training. Kath is an American engaged to a British Royal Marine, so she knows what its like to be in a relationship in 2 different countries, as I am. We don’t share many of the same views on war or politics, but I read her blog and find it interesting what she has to say, occasionally finding some common ground! It’s always good to hear a viewpoint different from what you believe so I never take offence, and I’m pretty certain Kath doesn’t either. The comment that Kath made is as a follows:

“I wonder if you’d heard the actual background of those photographs with children. Might want to check out this site to get the story: http://www.sandmonkey.org/2006/07/18/the-fucked-up-pictures-explained

Also, I find it interesting that you are going after Israel for what you call “brainwashing” of children, (without knowing the story) but say nothing of Hezbollah or the Palestinians using them — which is well documented.” – Kath
