Cindy Sheehan, The World's Biggest Terrorist
James Taranto ( points out this interesting editorial in ... Arab News! They call themselves "The Middle East's Leading English Language Daily" and Steve Darnell writes,
It is time to put an end to the "Cindy Sheehan debacle" in Crawford, Texas. Since I am not one to sugarcoat a subject I will start by simply saying: Ms. Sheehan is a liberal nut case who needs to be put in her place. ...

Ms. Sheehan and other appeasers around the world provide the fuel that feeds the fire of terrorism. If not for this fuel, terrorists would realize that they do not have a chance to sway the minds of people and would end the bombing. Terrorists are not stupid, they understand that bombing innocent civilians will not change the minds of the strong, but will break the will of the weak. So they attack the weak and the weak fold.

Spain is a good example of this reasoning. Would the terrorists have attacked Spain if the whole population stood strong against terrorism? No. What would be the point?

Every time an appeaser voices his or her opinion against the war in Iraq terrorists gain hope that they can change the will of the people. So whether they want to admit it or not, appeasers protesting the war in Iraq are indirectly responsible for the death of the innocent. And the death of our soldiers.

In fact appeasers are directly responsible for the death of Ms. Sheehan's son, not George W. Bush. If the whole country was united for the war in Iraq, I doubt if the terrorists would have started their suicide bombing campaign.

Using this logic Ms. Sheehan has become the biggest terrorist in the world, not George W. Bush as she so eloquently stated. And the liberal media has become her ally by spreading the word of her protest to the terrorists.
Well said, especially in the Arab News.

"For God's Sake, Please Stop the Aid!"
This guy, if we dug deep enough, would probably turn out to be a Thomas Sowell student. And just like the estimable Sowell, Kenyan economics expert James Shikwati should be heeded. He says huge foriegn aid pouring into Africa is hurting, not helping. Why?
Huge bureaucracies are financed (with the aid money), corruption and complacency are promoted, Africans are taught to be beggars and not to be independent. In addition, development aid weakens the local markets everywhere and dampens the spirit of entrepreneurship that we so desperately need. As absurd as it may sound: Development aid is one of the reasons for Africa's problems. If the West were to cancel these payments, normal Africans wouldn't even notice. Only the functionaries would be hard hit. Which is why they maintain that the world would stop turning without this development aid.
That says it pretty succinctly. Will anyone listen? Don't bet on it. Who could withstand the withering accusations of 'heartlessness' and 'greed' that would follow?

The Stupidest Thing I've Ever Seen
This is easily the stupidest thing I've ever seen.

Seriously, this is totally stupid. It also has the added benefit of being gutless, cowardly, and ridiculous. The NCAA is hitting the trifecta with one lousy press release!

I thought this was an Onion article when I first saw it.

Blessed Are The Peacemakers
It's surprising that the Star Tribune would carry an article such as this - a defense of our use of the bombs that ended WWII - but they did. It was a reminder to me that Japanese brought war to us, we enforced peace on them.
