R.I.P. Betty Friedan
On Saturday, on her 85th birthday, Betty Friedan died.

I read The Feminine Mystique about 30 years ago. I don’t recall that I found it at all earth-shattering; on the contrary, had the expression been around at the time I would probably have said, “Duh!"

And that’s exactly why I owe Friedan and the other early feminists such a debt of gratitude. I took it for granted that I would get an education, have a career, and have a family, but prior to feminism that was not at all obvious. The feminist movement today is currently stuck in an extreme leftist quagmire, but I will never forget the achievements of Friedan and others, and how much better my life is because of them.

Thank you, Betty. Rest in peace.

Islamic Democracy? And then what?
David Warren asks a timely question-will it be any different if President Bush's initiative to make the Islamic world democratic succeeds or fails? If it succeeds spectacularly, "and then what?"

Explicitly terroristic regimes may not be elected outside of Palestine and the rigged Iranian system, but the taming of Islam's insecure, hysterical fury will take a lot more than just democracy.

'Thank God for Dead Miners'
Some states are considering legislation to limit when and where people may protest at funerals because of the Westboro Baptist Church and its hate campaign:
Legislation against funeral protests was also introduced in West Virginia last month after a small knot of protesters from Westboro Baptist demonstrated outside a memorial for the 12 men killed in the Sago Mine disaster. The protesters held signs reading, "Thank God for Dead Miners," "God Hates Your Tears" and "Miners in Hell," arguing that the miners' deaths were a sign of God's wrath at America for tolerating gays.
Am I disgusted? Yes. Am I shocked? No, not really. As ev said, Fred Phelps is the kind of person who would have signs saying "God Hates Christ" at the crucifixion.

2006 QDR is out; the word I'm not hearing is "China"
The 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review is out, and once again, there will be cuts all around in the number of men and women who serve in our active-duty and reserve components. According to the Pentagon, however, those fewer troops will be used more effectively. We'll see if 5-1=5. The war planners are saying we'll cut the troops and still get a 46% increase in ready combat capability. It sounds too good to be true, but if there's as much wasted manpower in our military as they say there is, it would be good to turn that fat into muscle.
QDR Decisions. To achieve future joint ground force characteristics and build on progress to date, the Department will:
• Continue to rebalance capabilities by creating modular brigades in all three Army components: 117 in the Regular Army (42 BCTs and 75 support brigades); 106 in the Army National Guard (28 BCTs and 78 support brigades); and 58 support brigades in the U.S. Army Reserve. Th is equates to a 46 percent increase in readily available combat power and a better balance between combat and support
forces.


An Army Reserve general is talking a good game:
One of the boldest steps - reducing the Army Reserve's authorized end strength from 205,000 to 200,000 - isn't actually the force cut it might appear to be, because the Army Reserve currently has just 188,000 members on its rolls, Helmly said.

As it works to build its force to 200,000, a goal Helmly expects to reach by late in fiscal 2008 or early in fiscal 2009, the general insists the numbers will reflect trained, equipped members ready to deploy, if needed.

He expressed frustration with past force-strength figures that included reservists who hadn't yet shipped from their training posts, had permanent profiles or were otherwise not deployable.

Rather, Helmly said he wants to build an Army Reserve that's based on available strength - that is, soldiers who are fully trained and deployable. "We want to make sure units are full, filled with trained people who are deployable and ready to go," he said.

As part of this effort, the Army Reserve is streamlining its operations and restructuring its headquarters and training bases to make them more efficient and effective, Helmly said. That effort will free up 10,000 slots for operational units, he said.

In addition to improving readiness, Helmly said he sees these initiatives as big morale boosters for the troops.

"Soldiers want to belong to a good organization," he said. Enhancing units will make people more likely to want to want to stay in the Army Reserve, he said.

"As you make units more whole, you will improve retention even more because soldiers will feel good about being in a unit where they have all their leaders, where the leaders are trained and where all the other soldiers are there and they can go out and train prior to mobilization," he said.

Helmly said he owes it to members of the Army Reserve to ensure they have the best force possible. "They serve us with distinction and courage," he said. "And we should be able to make equally courageous decisions back here with regard to how we run the business end of things. And that is what we are trying to do."

'They call Jews and Christians inferior, and we say they're just exercising their freedom of speech'
A must read SPIEGEL Interview with Ayaan Hirsi Ali: 'Everyone Is Afraid to Criticize Islam'
SPIEGEL: Was apologizing for the cartoons the wrong thing to do?

Hirsi Ali: Once again, the West pursued the principle of turning first one cheek, then the other. In fact, it's already a tradition. In 1980, privately owned British broadcaster ITV aired a documentary about the stoning of a Saudi Arabian princess who had allegedly committed adultery. The government in Riyadh intervened and the British government issued an apology. We saw the same kowtowing response in 1987 when (Dutch comedian) Rudi Carrell derided (Iranian revolutionary leader) Ayatollah Khomeini in a comedy skit (that was aired on German television). In 2000, a play about the youngest wife of the Prophet Mohammed, titled "Aisha," was cancelled before it ever opened in Rotterdam. Then there was the van Gogh murder and now the cartoons. We are constantly apologizing, and we don't notice how much abuse we're taking. Meanwhile, the other side doesn't give an inch.

Sen. Feinstein wonders if Bush can kill terrorists on American soil
I am seriously gobsmacked here. Not known as the highest-wattage lightbulb in the Senate, Dianne Feinstein still managed to stun me with her stupid question to Justice Department official about whether or not the President can authorize killing terrorists who are planning an attack inside the United States. Funny, considering she was part of the Senate when it voted to give President Bush the authority to use military force against Al Qaeda after 9/11. Do you remember that terrifying autumn when we thought 9/11 was just a prelude to a series of mass-casualty attacks, possibly with biological or chemical weapons, and when anthrax was in the mail? That was the context our country was in when the Senate gave that authorization. We didn't know what was coming next. Now this moronic harridan wants to know if the President is allowed to kill terrorists in the United States? He damned well better be allowed!

If the Democrats make an issue of the President's right to order the killing of a terrorist on American soil the way they've made an issue of his wiretapping of Al Qaeda's US rolodex, they'll be playing right into Rove's hands. I really hope they do. It'll be just another bend in the Democrats' monorail ride to electoral oblivion. The Democratic Party: proudly protecting terrorists from getting what's coming to them, because as everyone knows, Bush is the real terrorist.
