Countertop Issues His Manifesto

And it's good.

I'd say I'm about 98% in line with him.

But I never considered myself a true libertarian, rather a conservative with a strong libertarian streak.

Either way, CT no speak with fork tongue.


Support Michael Yon

Michael Yon is one of the certified blog-masters. His dispatches from Mosul and now Afghanistan are second to none.

He needs our help. Unscrupulous publishers have taken the five-finger discount on one of his photos, and apparently have reneged on an agreement.

Go here and let them know what you think.

Pia Punk-slaps Pissant Press People

Wouldn't We Like To Know...

Wouldn't we like to know how our pal AMZ is faring right now?

Is he

a) enjoying 72 virgins?

Or is he

b) enjoying a red-hot poker up his ass down in the ninth ring of hell?

I think I know the answer. What say you?

John and Charlie say this is not a good thing.

Michelle Malkin agrees.

I must be honest. My first reaction was, "Gee, it couldn't have happened to nicer people." I see John and Charlie's points, and I think we're going to have to do something about it. But, I think that something ought to be purely punitive, and ugly into the bargain. I did two tours in Somalia back in 93 and 94, and I saw first-hand how they completely botched the opportunity they had, and not only bit but mangled the many hands that fed them.

You want sharia? Have it, be my guests. But I bet you won't like it.

And don't be surprised if this gets you more unwanted attention from the world's civilized nations. And it'll be done (or should be done) solely in self-interest, and not from any misplaced humanitarian impulse. Let the Quakers go hand out grain. I'm tired of it.



PS: This book has a pretty good account of our unit's first tour there.
