I was woken up early this morning by a call to be interviewed on a popular radio show with Patrick Shiels in Michigan, on the Big Show. He is a great guy to be on air with, because, unlike many talk-radio hosts, he does not shout, posture, or pontificate. We had a great conversation about various topics.
The primary topic I want to write on is more on the morons in the news today.
The first set of morons is the bunch of (presumably) Muslim nutjobs in England, who were planning to blow up a bunch of airliners using liquid explosives or explosives concealed in liquids. Ironically, what surprised me was the surprise law enforcement expressed at this possible mechanism, because I recall having chatted with someone in law enforcement 2 years ago about a movie script where terrorists conceal C4 or such explosives inside tampered Pepsi Cola or Coke cans.
I have another movie script in my head that involves another idea, which, in the interest of national security, I am going to share with some of my law enforcement (FBI, NYPD and SCPD) and government (State Dept.) contacts just so they are aware of what new mechanism the terrorists may use. Darn, there goes my chance of writing the next Die Hard 23 movie script. I wonder if the government will sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement.
The second moron is Pat Robertson, who is in Israel and Occupied Palestine, telling Israelis he and HE (God) stand with them in their fight against Lebanon. I would love to have Mr. Christian Televangelist:
a) ask the Zionists if they believe in Jesus Christ as a Holy Prophet and the Virgin Mary --- as the Christian and Muslim Lebanese do, whom the Zionists are bombing and killing with America-rushed guided bombs?
b) tell the Jews that Pat Robertson sells his clientele on the second coming (of more money to him) etc. but that it requires the Jews to be "saved" and made to "believe" and other such wonderful things that the many versions of the Bible teach?
c) talk about his large real estate and tourism project that will make him millions?
Hmmmm... It's not surprising to see illiterate Muslims in poor countries believing whatever a whackjob Mullah tells them as being the word of God, but when educated Americans spend hard earned money on Pat Jerk Robertson hoping for Armageddon to happen soon, instead of trying to make the world a better place.... it just makes me say, "Doh."
Giggle. Sorry Imran, I can't help it (giggle), I am so pleased with your well-aimed scorn that I'm tickled silly-pink.
Cuteness aside...Will someone in America please tell good ol' Pat that he's not helping? That he sounds (groan) annoyingly out of his depth? That as a Christian he's supposed to separate his religious beliefs from politics, and help calm the situation by not taking anyone's side, but rather take the middle ground of Peace? Eh?
Pat is the lowly scumbag high priest of the church of money with an IQ only matching that of George W. Bush.
By the way, whatever happened to those 2 kidnapped Israeli soldiers that started the current Lebanon-Israel violence? I didn't catch any news on them; all I've been hearing about are the civilian casualties from both sides. Has there been any report on their release (or killing)?
Yes, I've always wondered what part of the Bible Pat Robertson reads. I have this feeling he just bought the Cliff notes and got stuck on the Table of Contents.
They were expendable pigs for both sides. Israel could have easily (as it has in the past) made a deal on Hezbollah prisoner release in exchange for the two Zioniost invaders. Israel wanted to play Big Bully, USA wanted to please Zionist lobby by rushing more deadly bombs, and Hezbollah Shiites, whom Sunni AlQaeda hated, now has become heroes to the Islamic world as one. Nice going Zionazis and ChriStalinist Bush. Hezbollah does not care about Lebanese as both Christians and Muslim Lebanese are getting killed by the Jews and Shiites are getting world sympathy.

He's still 4 pages ahead of what Christalinist George W. Bush reads as he orders bombings of countries.
I have another question for you.
What if in a few years' time, new power-generating technologies inevitably make the global economy give up at least 60% of its dependence on oil (especially Saudi oil)? What do you imagine the consequences would be?
I imagine horrific Sunni-Shiite civil wars and coup d'etats for the next 15 years after the global shift to alternative fuels. Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, etc. all breaking up into smaller and smaller warring states...with (surprise, surprise!) Israel and Egypt as the emerging neutral allies in the region, playing both peacekeeper and taskmaster. (Whatcha think, too strange? The imaginings of a playful mind, LOL.)
I think you are onto a good point, Frances. Indeed, it is inevitable that oil will go out of fasion and out of stock. Saudis will be dead camels, Duabi will thrive BUT have Saudi fanatics trying to destroy it for economic jealousy but claiming it is too Western.... Egypt will be a worse basketcase, because US won't finance it anymore, as Israel will also be less useful in its value of keeping Arabs in check. Zionazis lobbyists and Jewiwsh spies in American military and government will work overtime, until the country has enough of it... will be interesting conflicts even in developed countries. Of course, US will become a third world country if the swarms of illegal invating locusts are not stopped. Welcome to the new third world order.
I don't think Hezbollah has become a hero at all. I think they are a better alternative to the Lebanese military, which is non-existant for all intents and purposes. If the jews were half as bright as they think they are, they'd invest some of the cash we throw at them building schools and hospitals for the Lebanese as Hezbollah.
Hi. It't not that the Hezbollah are being considered the next great thing since sliced Jews or diced Christians, nor are they (Sunni fanatics and fundamentalists) even going to suddenly consider Shias "real Muslims". It's that they are standing up more effectively to Israel/Zionists than Sunni Arab "leaders" like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, etc.
I agree with your analysis, but it is us Americans who are even more foolish, we lend/gift Israel BILLIONS of Dollars, look the other way while they kill civilians, RUSH more expensive multi-million Dollar weapons to be used by Israel before a ceasefire to destroy BILLIONS of Dollars of Lebanese civilian areas, and then we are offering $50 million to Lebanon to rebuild. The numbers are so funny, you'd almost think there was a typo somewhere.
We pay the blood money we think they are owed for turning boats of Jews away in the 30s and 40s when they were escaping the Nazis.
There is a genesis to all matters of politics and of the heart. The difference is knowing how to decipher revelations.

Spared: That has got to be one of the most beautiful, succint reflections I have ever seen. Hats off to you.
-Spared-, if we have to talk about things like blood money, we'd end up with several thousand times the world GDP.
Speaking about the business with the airlines, why is that such a big deal? Because it's a couple of westerners (like me) may have died instead of the millions elsewhere. Just a small fact, there are more people dying of AIDS every day then the total amount of Americans killed in terror attacks.
