Are You Kidding Me?

Ahmadinejad and Putin need to go on the road together if they're going to keep up the comedy act.  They might make a couple of bucks beyond what they're stealing from their own countries.

This guy is dangerously deranged.

Another Mahdi Army Ceasefire

Muqtada Al-Sadr has ordered his Mahdi Army militia to observe another six-month ceasefire in Iraq.  Isn't this the same guy who was indicted for murder and then hid in Iran while his thugs got stomped by Coalition Forces?

Thought so.  Why aren't these things mentioned anymore, and why are we praising him in the AP article?

Still Want to Start Up the Cold War Again? Part II

From the AP:

WASHINGTON - A missile launched from a Navy ship successfully struck a dying U.S. spy satellite passing 130 miles over the Pacific on Wednesday, a defense official said.

This is what Putin threatened to restart the Cold War over?  I don't think so.  Right now we still don't know if the mission was accomplished, destroying the tank containing 1,000 pounds of a toxic fuel called hydrazine, but the fact that we can hit a satellite like this is amazing to me.  We're still the big boy on the block and a cowardly bully like Putin shouldn't forget it.

Undermining Democracy

Since the National Elections in 2000, has there been any election in the world that has escaped accusations of corruption?  In Mexico, Pakistan, the former Soviet Republic in Georgia, Iraq, Armenia, Russia, Kenya, our own elections in 2004 and 2006, among many others, there have been accompanying cries of “foul”.  While a few accusations may appear credible (or at least sincere), most accusations of fraud or corruption seem to be made without a shred of evidence.  Sometimes these accusations even come before the actual election.  Is this becoming standard practice just because the losing side wants to disrupt or discredit the results?  Do they hope to win concessions from the winners or the courts?  Or is there something more?

Two major systems that hate democracy are the Socialists and the Radical Islamists.  Both are failed systems that promote misery and consolidate power in a select few who have no regard for the freedoms of others.  Is it possible that one (or both) of these groups routinely contest election results in order to undermine democracy as a system?  I believe this is already happening. 

After creating controversy where none rightly exists, Socialists and Radical Islamists then point to that manufactured controversy as proof that Democracy is unworkable.  The other thing we keep seeing is attacks on voters during elections.  Terror, death, and discord all to undermine Democracy.  We will see more and more of all this over the next few years as they continue to attack our government and way of life.  The Socialist and Islamic Radical systems cannot outperform Democracy at any level.  They can only try to tear it down hoping to fill the resulting power vacuum.  Creating discord and lowering confidence in the Democratic process is just one more way of attacking their much-stronger enemies… us.

Guantanamo Experience

For those of you coming here and have never seen me comment on other blogs, here is something from Patterico's that might interest you.  Since we did this, I've been gratified to see how much has come out confirming my experiences.

Still Want to Start Up the Cold War Again?

Putin has been a thorn in our side since forever.  Now, he wants to install a puppet President and keep power indefinitely as Prime Minister or somesuch.  He has also threatened to restart the Cold War because of U.S. "provocations" like a defensive missile shield.

Perhaps this might help him reconsider?  Yeah, of course it's a test.  We're still ahead of you and will knock all your satellites from the sky.  All your base are belong to us!
