Daily Roundup

A Day In the Life of An Ambulance Driver. Very moving accounts of the yeoman's work that medics do and for which they are not properly recognized. Read the whole thing and be thankful that's not you today.

The Chinese do not screw around. I've been told time and again that fighting terrorism only breeds more terrorism. This same group wants to treat terrorism as a police matter not a national security one. Extending that logic to it's foregone conclusion, fighting crime only begets crime so we must not fight crime I suppose. I anxiously await Democrats blaming Hu Jintao for creating thousands upon thousands of terrorists.

excerpt:


“We lost a few people but we killed - I don’t know exactly - thousands of them. These people know our strength. We taught them a good hard lesson.”

Rebiya Kadeer, a Uighur businesswoman and politician now in exile, says she saw a horrific police video of the “good hard lesson” when she went to Yining in 1997 to investigate. It showed unarmed adolescent boys and girls shot dead on camera, their bodies tossed into trucks. A mother and her group of children, aged five or six, crumpled under a volley of bullets. The taped slaughter went on and on, with excited commands and shouts of glee from the Chinese on the soundtrack.

Notes on genocide and interventionalism. I think Obama is sincere. Perhaps even honest. He's refreshingly free of political smarm and insincerity that comes off in waves from so many politicians. I also think he's naieve and too green for The Big Chair. Veep? Sure. Secretary of anything other than State or Defense? Sure. President? No.

The Grim Reaper is really a cat. Who knew? Paul Smith Jr. sees his worst non-baseball related fears confirmed.

Global Warming strikes again! Won't someone please think of the children?

Hollywood finally feels safe in releasing their anti-war anti-American films now that Kos and DU are coming out in their loathing for Armed Forces personnel. I suspect they've badly miscalculated and a plurality (if not more) of them will flop. I'm certainly hoping so.

That was my first thought when I saw the article: the cat's a killer, people!
