Iran: New Middle East won’t include Zionists

Arab nations will usher in a new Middle East “without Zionists and without colonialists,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday.

Ahmadinejad spoke Thursday during a trip to Syria. The trip follows a string of US efforts to break up Syria’s 30-year alliance with Tehran.

He said that “if the Zionist regime wants to repeat its past mistakes, this will bring about its demise and annihilation.”

Silly Jeff. Silly Mutt. Isn’t holding hands kinda…ghey? Aren’t you guys supposed to get pushed off a cliff or something for that?

This is an open thread, and caption if you can.

    Lebanon is grateful for Russia’s MiG-29 fighter jets, which Russia promised to give to the Mideastern country as a gift. However, Lebanese officials wonder whether the country really needs them. Lebanon tries to find out if Russia could replace the fighters with something else. One Mig-29 costs approximately $30 million. The gift therefore totals $300 million

    they would rather have helos

    yep…pravda…take it or leave it

    Lebanon’s so small, a fighter wouldn’t do them much good. It’s a copter. Israel can go from one end of the country to the other in a couple minutes in an F-16.

    What Israel could use is a few Warthogs. Slow and indestructible.

    The Israeli spy agency Mossad may be the target of international reproach since it allegedly killed the Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a Dubai hotel this month, but at home emerging details of the operation have generated Mossad mania.

    It has never been more popular in Israel, with stores selling out of Mossad memorabilia and its official website reporting a soaring number of visitors interested in applying to become agents. “Mossad has been restored to its glory days,” said Ilan Mizrahi, a former deputy director of the agency, which is located in the affluent beach town of Herzliya, north of Tel Aviv.

    What worries me is that with the Undocumented Kenyan Carpetbagger (UKC) in the White House one or more of these Tin Pot Dictators will miscalculate and start another World War. I will not be the least surprised when UKC’s mishandling of the Middle East leads to a Regional Nuclear War.

    A Nuclear Winter is just the thing to stop AGW in its tracks. I wonder if that would help the Climate Troofers at the BVofAF feel better about their already bleak futures.

    @ Bumr50:
    Mig29′s look to be a pretty decent design, but to my amateurish eyes they’ve got two problems that don’t look good-- 1)short-life engines made by third-world factories 2)Russian airframes (which don’t seem to be a real improvement, craftsman-wise, over the Soviet era)
    That’s just from what I keep seeing whenever I follow a link to Indian newspapers (India’s losing highly experienced Mig29 pilots regularly lately, the hard way; Indonesia has been having problems too). “Buy Russian--We Make the Finest Ejection Seats!!”

    GOP Rep: Blacks Worse Off Now Than Under Slavery (VIDEO)

    Rep. Trent Franks, a Republican from Arizona, said on Friday that because of U.S. abortion policy, “far more of the African American community is being devastated by the policies of today than were being devastated by the policies of slavery.”

    Franks made the comments in an interview with video blogger Mike Stark of StarkReports.com.

    Slavery, said Franks, “is a crushing mark on America’s soul, yet today half of all black children are aborted. Half of all black children are aborted. Far more black children, far more of the African American community is being devastated by the policies of today than were being devastated by the policies of slavery.”

    @ Buckeye Abroad:

    The “anti-war” folks were, objectively, pro-Saddam Hussein, although none of the Republicans had the intestinal fortitude (or lack of tact) to point that out. If we hadn’t gone to war, that would have effectively been admitting that Saddam Hussein had disarmed, and sanctions would surly have soon ended. This would have left Hussein and his two lovely sons large and in charge, having just backed down the Great Satan. The rape rooms would have still been in business, and the WMD factories would have soon been out of mothballs and running full speed at cranking out their deadly products.

    All of which is exactly what the “anti-war” folks wanted. They aren’t (for the most part) anti-war. They are on the other side.

    Be careful in Rio!

    The gun-toting boys from Brazil who rule Rio’s ‘Corner of Fear’


    boy steps boldly into the night traffic and waves a gun to bring the cars to a halt, clearing a path for a motorcycle which screeches into the intersection. Riding pillion is another boy, brandishing a machinegun.

    Later two teenagers, also riding pillion on motorbikes, flash their guns at other motorists; nearby, a boy can be seen taking aim with a rifle equipped with a telescopic sight. Other youths wander the street smoking crack.

    For residents, the junction between the busy Dom Helder Câmara and dos Democráticos, in North Rio de Janeiro, has become known as the Corner of Fear — and video footage of daily life there has shocked a nation already familiar with guns and violence.

    The latest images, captured by undercover journalists from the Rio tabloid Extra, have exposed the city’s criminal youth culture in a manner that echoes the journalistic investigation featured in the film City of God.

    @ Rodan:

    His point is obvious, but, yousee, KKKilgore thinks that it is good that half of all black babies conceived are aborted. He’d probably like to see it at two-thirds (100% abortion? Possibly). The abortion lobby goes back to Margret Sanger and she was, without question, a hard-core racist. The modern abortion lobby is smart enough not to be so obvious about it, of course, but reducing minority birth rates is all part of the plan.

    Besides, at roughly $500 a pop there’s a lot of money in a million or so abortions a year. You have to keep the Benjamins flowing into Big Abortion’s coffers. They have large campaign contributions that they have to make…

    re: #35 SanFranciscoZionist

    Well, I corrected myself later. It is true that black women have abortions at much higher rates than whites. But:

    1. It’s idiotic to call zygotes “children”.

    2. Miscarriage is very common-- between 25% and 40%-- so there’s no way that half of all zygotes are aborted.

    3. It is, as Charles noted, concern-trolling.

    4. Having a high rate of abortions does not equal being worse than under slavery. I’d say not having your child stolen from you and sold to someone else-- your child that may have been a product of you being raped by your owner-- is rather worse.

    5. Given that slave owners purposefully arranged for their slaves to have children (though they used rather more offensive language for it) and forced them to bear children, this is an especially odious thing for the man to say.

    You know, if you look at the percentage of black babies aborted compared to whites, if it were anything other than abortions the race hustlers would be talking about predatory behavior on the part of Big Abortion. As is, they simply do not care. If they don’t care, why should I? I do think it will be interesting demographically to see what effect it has on the political landscape when the Left effectively aborts much of the next generation of Leftists. I guess they figure they can recruit from the children of conservatives, but I’m not sure how well that will work out for them.

    Published: 02.26.10, 23:49 / Israel News
    Two retired Turkish generals were charged on Friday over a plot to unseat the Islamist-rooted government, broadcaster CNN Turk said, a move which could stoke fresh tension between the ruling party and secular armed forces.

    Cetin Dogan, a former head of Turkey’s First Army, and Engin Alan, a former special forces commander, are the most senior figures to be formally arrested following the detention of some 50 officers on Monday, more than 30 of whom have now been charged. (Reuters)

    What will LudwigVanPsychotic say to this ? Not only has the American Physical Society long ago rejected that the “science” of AGW is settled (as I pointed out here) but now the Institute of Physics (GB) ‘doesn’t mince words’ (via climateaudit)

    Memorandum submitted by the Institute of Physics (CRU 39)

    The disclosure of climate data from the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia

    The Institute of Physics is a scientific charity devoted to increasing the practice, understanding and application of physics. It has a worldwide membership of over 36,000 and is a leading communicator of physics-related science to all audiences, from specialists through to government and the general public. Its publishing company, IOP Publishing, is a world leader in scientific publishing and the electronic dissemination of physics.

    The Institute is pleased to submit its views to inform the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee’s inquiry, ‘The disclosure of climate data from the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia’.

    The submission details our response to the questions listed in the call for evidence, which was prepared with input from the Institute’s Science Board, and its Energy Sub-group.

    What are the implications of the disclosures for the integrity of scientific research?

    1. The Institute is concerned that, unless the disclosed e-mails are proved to be forgeries or adaptations, worrying implications arise for the integrity of scientific research in this field and for the credibility of the scientific method as practised in this context.

    2. The CRU e-mails as published on the internet provide prima facie evidence of determined and co-ordinated refusals to comply with honourable scientific traditions and freedom of information law. The principle that scientists should be willing to expose their ideas and results to independent testing and replication by others, which requires the open exchange of data, procedures and materials, is vital. The lack of compliance has been confirmed by the findings of the Information Commissioner. This extends well beyond the CRU itself -- most of the e-mails were exchanged with researchers in a number of other international institutions who are also involved in the formulation of the IPCC’s conclusions on climate change.

    3. It is important to recognise that there are two completely different categories of data set that are involved in the CRU e-mail exchanges:

    · those compiled from direct instrumental measurements of land and ocean surface temperatures such as the CRU, GISS and NOAA data sets; and

    · historic temperature reconstructions from measurements of ‘proxies’, for example, tree-rings.

    4. The second category relating to proxy reconstructions are the basis for the conclusion that 20th century warming is unprecedented. Published reconstructions may represent only a part of the raw data available and may be sensitive to the choices made and the statistical techniques used. Different choices, omissions or statistical processes may lead to different conclusions. This possibility was evidently the reason behind some of the (rejected) requests for further information.

    5. The e-mails reveal doubts as to the reliability of some of the reconstructions and raise questions as to the way in which they have been represented; for example, the apparent suppression, in graphics widely used by the IPCC, of proxy results for recent decades that do not agree with contemporary instrumental temperature measurements.

    6. There is also reason for concern at the intolerance to challenge displayed in the

    e-mails. This impedes the process of scientific ‘self correction’, which is vital to the integrity of the scientific process as a whole, and not just to the research itself. In that context, those CRU e-mails relating to the peer-review process suggest a need for a review of its adequacy and objectivity as practised in this field and its potential vulnerability to bias or manipulation.

    7. Fundamentally, we consider it should be inappropriate for the verification of the integrity of the scientific process to depend on appeals to Freedom of Information legislation. Nevertheless, the right to such appeals has been shown to be necessary. The e-mails illustrate the possibility of networks of like-minded researchers effectively excluding newcomers. Requiring data to be electronically accessible to all, at the time of publication, would remove this possibility.

    8. As a step towards restoring confidence in the scientific process and to provide greater transparency in future, the editorial boards of scientific journals should work towards setting down requirements for open electronic data archiving by authors, to coincide with publication. Expert input (from journal boards) would be needed to determine the category of data that would be archived. Much ‘raw’ data requires calibration and processing through interpretive codes at various levels.

    9. Where the nature of the study precludes direct replication by experiment, as in the case of time-dependent field measurements, it is important that the requirements include access to all the original raw data and its provenance, together with the criteria used for, and effects of, any subsequent selections, omissions or adjustments. The details of any statistical procedures, necessary for the independent testing and replication, should also be included. In parallel, consideration should be given to the requirements for minimum disclosure in relation to computer modelling.

    Are the terms of reference and scope of the Independent Review announced on 3 December 2009 by UEA adequate?

    10. The scope of the UEA review is, not inappropriately, restricted to the allegations of scientific malpractice and evasion of the Freedom of Information Act at the CRU. However, most of the e-mails were exchanged with researchers in a number of other leading institutions involved in the formulation of the IPCC’s conclusions on climate change. In so far as those scientists were complicit in the alleged scientific malpractices, there is need for a wider inquiry into the integrity of the scientific process in this field.

    11. The first of the review’s terms of reference is limited to: “…manipulation or suppression of data which is at odds with acceptable scientific practice…” The term ‘acceptable’ is not defined and might better be replaced with ‘objective’.

    12. The second of the review’s terms of reference should extend beyond reviewing the CRU’s policies and practices to whether these have been breached by individuals, particularly in respect of other kinds of departure from objective scientific practice, for example, manipulation of the publication and peer review system or allowing pre-formed conclusions to override scientific objectivity.

    How independent are the other two international data sets?

    13. Published data sets are compiled from a range of sources and are subject to processing and adjustments of various kinds. Differences in judgements and methodologies used in such processing may result in different final data sets even if they are based on the same raw data. Apart from any communality of sources, account must be taken of differences in processing between the published data sets and any data sets on which they draw.

    Hi Teacake!
    Just a quick comment on the Sen Bunning thing-- my guess is that it’s probably just maneuvering, ie he wants something and delaying that bill is the only way he can get the Dems attention. Either that, or the Dems are doing their usual “Hey, everybody wants this thing to pass so let’s lard it down with fifty-eleven totally unrelated big spender items” thing, and Bunning is trying to stop them.
    Dunno, but Congress had better renew unemployment benefits or they’ll be seeing pitchforks in their sleep, I’d bet ;-) .

    well…..how about this

    Al Gore was sitting in the front row but that didn’t stop shareholders from lambasting the world’s leading junk scientist at the Apple’s annual meeting

    Gore was seated in the first row, along with his six fellow board members, in Apple’s Town Hall auditorium as several stockholders took turns either bashing or praising his high-profile views on climate change.

    At the first opportunity for audience participation just several minutes into the proceeding, a longtime and well-known Apple shareholder–some would say gadfly–who introduced himself as Shelton Ehrlich, stood at the microphone and urged against Gore’s re-election to the board. Gore “has become a laughingstock. The glaciers have not melted,” Sheldon said, referring to Gore’s views on global warming. “If his advice he gives to Apple is as faulty as his views on the environment then he doesn’t need to be re-elected.”

    Bwahahahhahahah…..
    hahahahahahaha
    *gasp**pant**wheeze*

    bwahahahahaha

    LOL unfortunately fart spoofs and other bodily function jokes always crack me up. I sent something to “a friend” once and she was so terribly offended that I would think she thought it would be funny. I wish I could recall what that was. Had me laughing to tears.

    Climate definitions: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/02/25/judith-i-love-ya-but-youre-way-wrong/

    This was never about the weather.
    Let me provide a glossary to make it easier to translate the postnormalese climatespeak into familiar english:
    Fraudulent- ‘essentially vindicated’
    Consensus- Applying set theory, consensus is the intersection of two classical problems, The Prisoner’s Dilemma and The Gambler’s Fallacy.
    Settled – ’skeptics crushed’
    Lie – ‘failure to communicate the complexities of science’
    Skeptic – heretic
    Denier – blasphemer
    proof – incantations designed to invoke supernatural forces of persuasion
    climate change – taxable weather
    weather – facts which are disproven by climate.
    scientist – the geek in a carnival show that entertains by disgusting

    My AGW skepticism was never paid for by big oil. It was created when it’s proponents failed to use the scientific method. And subsequent knowledge that the peer review process is politically manipulated.

    All scientists should fear this. AGW support will put a weight around the neck of every scientist.

    ok I’m all out of funny so I guess I’ll go back to scary

    Obama May Prohibit Home-Loan Foreclosures Without HAMP Review

    Banks are already too frightened to lend money. And if this thing gets approved — and I suspect it will — then loan officers will have to think a third time before approving a mortgage. First, they need to figure out if you’re a good risk. Then, they’ll have to guess if they’ll get in trouble for not lending money to someone with connections/victim status/etc. And after all that, banks will have to take into consideration whether you’ll use HAMP to screw them out of their money somewhere down the line.

    That giant sucking sound you hear is… well, it’s this goddamn Administration.

    From a little something I wrote last year called, appropriately enough, The Grand Unification Theory of Sucking:

    Next headline, sans link: NYT MONDAY: TENSIONS GRIP OBAMA ECONOMIC TEAM… DEVELOPING…

    Well, duh.

    Let’s pretend for a moment that, god forbid, you break your arm. And somehow you end up with a team of doctors all trained at Obama University. As you lie there on the table in the ER, one doctor treats your arm by banging on the unbroken one with a ball-peen hammer. The second doctor takes the unusual course of setting your hair on fire. And the third one uses leeches.

    Undeterred by your arm’s stubborn refusal to set, soon the doctors start blaming one another. And even though all of them are doing nothing but compounding your injury, none will take any blame. In fact, the louder you scream, the harder they go to work on you.

    That, apparently, is what’s going on in the West Wing these days. Our economy is being managed by Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, and Dr. Howard.

    Last headline, again no link yet: OBAMA PLANS FOR NEW BANKING REGULATIONS… DEVELOPING..

    So now in walks a fourth doctor. This one has some Percocet and a splint, and when you see him you think, “Oh, at last, someone who knows what they’re doing!” At which point, Hospital Administrator Obama shoots the fourth doctor in the face with a pistol. And wait until you see the hospital bill – they’ll charge you for everything, including the bullet.

    Are the banks too scared to move? Then threaten them with an all-new regulatory environment, one which might leave them as screwed as a GM bondholder!

    Talk about scary, I got my gas & electric bill today. $200!!!!!!!!!! WTF??????? I live in a very small studio apt with one of those heaters that has a pilot light with heat panels. Last year in the apartment I moved from, I had the same sort of heater that due to a month of freezing weather, kept that on pretty much all month too and that was only $100. I just can’t believe this is correct. Damn scary!

    We live above a new mother!

    Barely hafta run the heater.

    I’d share some heat with ya if I could -- trust me I know about huge utility bills.


  142. 142 | February 26, 2010 6:19 pm

    Just took a look on line -- Actually, it appears they haven’t been receiving my payments and that is just as scary. This world is just too complicated when the easy things don’t work out. You do your part, and the middle people screw up… but who gets screwed?


  143. 143 | February 26, 2010 6:21 pm

    @ Bumr50: Well that is pretty great. lol
    It would be also just as nice to live above a bakery!

    Hey teacake, how did the 1928 dollar coin turn out, were you able to ebay it or something?


  145. 145 | February 26, 2010 6:37 pm

    @ CynicalConservative:
    Darn it! Someone emailed me to say it looked like a 3 and not an 8. I think they were right. That one was only worth about $20. So, I ended the auction early. lol oh well.

    And add to that Obama deciding to send a new U.S. envoy to Syria…there’s a pattern and it is an ugly one.
