Proof that AOL is evil

I think Margo Kingston just found my website!

Elsewhere on AOL:

  • Message Boards about “Uday Hussein is sexy”
  • Home Pages about “Uday Hussein is sexy”
  • Kids Only sites about “Uday Hussein is sexy”

That’s right kids!

Design Change

Nothing special here, I just made a new column on the right to keep permalinks to some of my more substantial rants. This is primarily for the benefit of the 10 billion visitors I have had in the last few days looking for Democracy, Whiskey and Sexy. Enjoy!

LIBERATION First, some housekeeping: Tim

LIBERATION

First, some housekeeping:

Tim Blair is caught in a quandary:

I SHOULDN’T be so happy. After all, I’m a right-wing deathbeast, and the end (or near end) of a war should upset me, because we conservatives lust for war all the time. Except when we have to fight it ourselves, of course. Being chickenhawks and all.

I’m also happy the quagmire is no more. No “million Mogadishus”, no “hundreds of thousands of dead innocents”. If you have a TV or an Internet thingo, the pictures of Liberated Iraqis are all around you. Go take a look because I’m going to be watching it too.

Greenpeace are Idiots. Free speech

April 10, 2003

Greenpeace are Idiots.

Free speech is a basic right in our country. Unfortunately, some elements in our society think that means that anything goes, as long as it’s accompanied by a message. Free Speech means what it says. It doesn’t give you the right to sabotage, piracy or otherwise hinder the actions of groups you are opposed to.

Actions like those yesterday highlight just how idiotic Greenpeace are. How can they be sure the RAN knew what the mission of the boats was? As Gareth notes:

Should someone have told them that the main role of the navy is to remove mines that impede the humanitarian effort? Do the Greens want the mines to stay in place or do they want humanitarian aid to get through?

Of course the obvious answer is: They don’t give a shit. They just want to get on the news no matter what happens. The only way the protest could have been more successful for Greenpeace is if the RAN Vessel opened fire on their boats. Not only would that mean worldwide coverage for Greenpeace, but a huge increase in their membership out of sympathy for the “innocentvictims.

I use the word “innocent” in quotation marks for a good reason. Members of Greenpeace and affiliated NGO’s are guilty of many crimes, ranging from Piracy to outright Wetworks.

Apart from the obvious illegality of actions against Warships, Greenpeace could quite easily be digging their own graves through their actions. Fedayeen in Iraq are already conducting suicide attacks disguised as Red Crescent Ambulances. How long before the first suicide attack under a Greenpeace Flag?

Boarding naval vessels is possibly the most stupid thing I can think of at this point in time. At least they had the good sense to do it to an Australian vessel this time. God knows what would have happened if they tried it on a US warship, and they’ve already been given a pretty clear message by the French.
