"Leap into extinction
Have the excesses of the “Cold War” returned to take control of our sanity? Does the end justify the means? Civilization has taken great leap into the dark hole of extinction! What are we witnessing?
What price must humanity pay to satisfy the insatiable demands of the powerful? The innocent continue to suffer the consequences of the good intentions of a “morally corrupt” leadership!

Hey, don't they chop off hands for that?
I wonder how they are defining 'youths'? This is the future of Islam according to the Arab News. The "loafing or loitering syndome"? In America we call that 'Adolesence.'
"On the subject of “Social consciousness and its impact on the youth,” Dr. Hanafi Mohammed Nor of the University of Malaysia said a number of factors contributed to what he termed the “loafing or loitering syndrome”. He quoted a study commissioned by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, according to which 70 percent of the youths covered by the survey smoked, 41 percent used drugs, 25 percent consumed liquor, 40 percent viewed blue films, 18 percent had premarital sex, 28 percent gambled, 16 percent committed thefts, while others read pornographic material during their free time."
What is wrong with these people? Zero tolerance? I could understand this if he beat her, groped her, fucked her...but a kiss on the forehead? Come on, folks, what's the message you're trying to teach here?
Although, I have to add, Jamie, 1) get a haircut and 2) if this is the worse thing that ever happens to you you'll have a great life, in the meantime, stop being so melodramatic: "I'm going to be scarred for life. I'll have no stories to tell my kids." Oh brother.

Porn: The Musical
In a year which has seen Boy George on stage in London and a musical nominated for Best Picture, it seems only fitting that Debbie Does Dallas should open off-broadway. The play with songs opens tonight.
Can 'Behind The Green Door: The Musical' be far behind?

I realize that these were written/drawn weeks (if not months) ago, but these are now the height of bad taste and should probably be published at a later date. Before the tragic death of Sen. Wellstone these were merely an unfunny attempt (from a usually very funny comic) to play off of the 2000 John Ashcroft senate race, I thought. Now, they're just a little creepy.
Let’s stop bullying
I had the privilege of working in Saudi Arabia for seven years, from 1984 to 1991, and had the unique opportunity of learning about and appreciating their culture, religion and people.
A good start, here. Gives local color and a foundation of 'I know whereof I speak.'
During the first few years of my stay, Israel was a white or blank spot on their maps.
I'm sorry, what? It appears that what you are saying is that from 1984 to 1991 Saudi Arabia did not recognize the existence of Israel. How shameful. It's almost as though you're about to scold Saudi Arabia for being anti-semitic or something...
In my humble opinion, Israel is the problem. Not Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Yemen or anyone else.
Oops..nevermind. I see, now. Israel is the problem. The existence of a country causes the countries which border it to attack. Perfectly logical, of course, assuming you're perfectly deluded.
Dubya, the borderline retard in DC, and his cronies in the Senate and Congress, most of them financially dependent on the Jews, have it all wrong.
Which I see you are. Perfectly deluded, I mean. 'Borderline retard'? Not to put too fine a point on anything here, wouldn't want to make your few remaining brain cells work too hard, but the man has degrees (plural) from Ivy league universities. Last time I checked those weren't easy to acquire (even for the scions of wealthy families). All those with multiple degrees from Ivy league universities raise your hands.
They want the oil just like, in the sixties, they wanted the riches of Africa. As it happens, I also spent some time in the Belgian Congo during their infamous independence period. The Congolese were very happy-go-lucky people. Go take a look now!
Ah yes, the 'poor people are happy people' argument. And Zimbabwe used to be an exporter of food, guess that's Israel's fault too.
Let us stop financing Israel,
I'm going to take this sentence one section at a time...while we're at it, let's stop financing Egypt and all the other countries we send our tax dollars to, and the UN as well. Let's stop spending money to protect Saudi oil fields and the EU. Close the borders and appoint Pat Buchanan King.
let us melt down all their weapons
Must really cheese you off that those pesky jews are stronger than you...
let us settle their population in Antarctica where they will not be able to terrorize any other nation for a very long time.
So, you admit that that goal of the Arab nations is a jew-free middle east? I think Hitler had a similar idea. Of course, this brings us back to that whole 'the existence of Israel provoked attack' thing.
America must stop trying to bully the world.
I'm sorry, did I miss a segue?
Some nations do not want our way of life;
And some citizens of America don't either. I might not agree with what you say but I'll defend to the death your right to say it. That's what makes America great. That's what makes America free. Too bad you're too blinded by hatred and propaganda to see that what you so roundly condemn gives you the freedom to roundly condemn it without fear.
perhaps they believe our way of life is not all that exciting.
There is nothing exciting about a peaceful life, secure in the knowledge that you and your children will live free, able to worship and believe and be as they choose. That your wife or daughter or sister or mother is free to live the life she wants. Freedom and liberty is not exciting. Freedom and liberty are worth dying for. War isn't exciting. War is a last resort. But I, for one, will not sacrafice the precious freedom and liberty which the founders of our glorious country fought and died for at the altar of political correctness and Sharia.

Thanks Andre, for reminding me how special this country is that we live in. If you don't like it, you're welcome to move.
