Mazel Tov, Matt & Fay!
A birdie whispered it in our ears: it is done. They are one :-) Congratulations, you two! I feel an ululation coming on...ululululululululululululu!

The former Fay will now be known as the lovely RadioFayyF, we think.

Update: intrepid Canadian border infiltrator "Thousand Sons" is back with first-person scoopage!

Iran: the end-game begins—for both of us
Iran has restarted the use of the nuclear bomb-making equipment it received from Noted Bastard AQ Khan. It may now be too late to stop the Iranian bomb. As the entire world absorbs itself in the pomp, pageantry and spectacle of the Turino Olympics, it's worth remembering the lesson of the ancient Greeks-the world-beating civilization that was able, displaying admirable heroics, to prevent the far more numerous forces of Persia from successfully eradicating it. Unfortunately, the Greeks didn't manage to remain a viable concern, and their Olympics perished for thousands of years before a successor Western civilization revived them.

If modern Persia is allowed to join the nuclear club, we can't be too far behind the ancient Greeks in history's scrap-book. Victor Davis Hanson has also noticed how far our liberties and sense of self-assurance have declined: Losing Civilization. In addition, Ahmad-i-nejad is now directly threatening to punish the American and European people collectively for the Danish cartoons...I have an inkling of what kind of punishment he intends.

This is no joke.

President Bush has made repeated, personal assurances, in more than one forum, that Iran will not be allowed to attain nuclear status while he could do anything about it. It is time for you to act, Mr. President. Now. Yesterday. Or your word is as hollow on preventing nuclear Iran as it was on preventing a Rwanda-like genocide. "Not on my watch", you wrote. Really?

We're in a living nightmare, stuck in a do-loop. Enjoy the Olympics; if we were serious in the first place, Nazi Iran would have been excluded from them.

Even an apology is not good enough
The media director for the Muslim Association of Britain, one of the organisations participating in protests in London over the publications of the Mohammed caricatures, said that demonstrators want to send the message that "the clash of civilizations is only promoted by fringe minorities. We see the future as one of dialogue between practices, cultures, faiths and ideologies." I wonder if Saudi Arabia's top cleric qualifies as a "fringe minority":
Saudi Arabia's top cleric called on the world's Muslims to reject apologies for the "slanderous" caricatures of Islam's Prophet Mohammed and demanded the authors and publishers of the cartoons be tried and punished, Saudi newspapers reported Saturday.
Saudi Cleric Demands Trial Over Drawings. Good luck with that dialogue, everyone.

Olympics
I try not to be a cynic or critic of the Olympic Games, although the politicians and organizers of same make it difficult not to do so. I know what the athletes feel, because as a young man, like many others, I dreamed of being one. As I grew up I competed in sports exhibited in these Winter Games, and met several participants, and several medallists, training with two of them. My skills never reached the pinnacle required for the Olympics, but none-the-less I know the feeling those young men and women feel as they meet in Torino, Italy today. It is very different than the politicians and organizers, who for some reason just must make political gestures, and express agendas, and invite personages the likes of Yoko Ono, Susan Sarandon, and Peter Gabriel to represent it. Yoko gave us her usual transcendentalist hype in words trite and simplistic, as if just thinking something will bring it about....implying as always that you are sub-human if you don't agree. I've got some news for that hag, you don't think about peace to bring it off, what you do is not think about making war.....peace is the result.

The young athletes are not thinking about war, they are there to compete, to participate in a game, knowing full well than only 3 can win a medal in any event, it doesn't matter, it is just important to be there, to try, and to be among people similarly inclined on a large stage. Those of us who wished we could be there, are there none-the-less, through them. I watched on Canadian television tonight, as they ran their tape of this afternoon's ceremony. They kept a corner of the screen dedicated to the faces of the young Canadians, and among them not a politician or activist was evident.....just giddy, young, exuberant faces, smiling like kids with keys to the cookie jar. CBC is to be commended, in their apolitical coverage of these ceremonies, and especially for their solitary political remark...that it is still a travesty that the International Olympic Committee has not yet memorialized or honored the athletes murdered in Munich, which the announcer said during the entrance of the Israeli team behind the Israeli flag. He had the guts to just make that statement. I suspect the only ones present in Torino who understand what he meant are the athletes.

For the next two weeks, politics can wait, and they will wait in the minds and activities of those athletes. I am naive enough to still believe in the Olympic dream. You want peace? Emulate the athletes, whose sole motivation is achievement. So much better than the covetous determination to tear things down. Concentrate on what can be achieved, not on what you can destroy. It is an infectious idea. There's a crowd on youths in Torino tonight who are doing just that. What if we all did, and it lasted more than two weeks? Yoko Ono is wrong, you don't get there by thinking about it, you achieve it by trying and doing. You only become a cynic if you allow yourself to do so. I hope I never do.

Iran: have we wasted the opportunity to act?
At the American Thinker, former special assistant to the Reagan administration's CIA director Herbert Mayer asks if we've still got that survival instinct that any living being has. I can't shake the feeling that we waited too long, and that the reckoning will be far harsher than it would have been if we had simply taken care of Iran a long time ago.

Simply put, Iran’s nuclear weapons program, combined with the murderous comments of that country’s president, is the political equivalent of a man running toward your children’s school holding a hand grenade and shouting “I hate kids. I welcome death." The risk of taking time—to think, to talk, to analyze, to co-ordinate with other countries – is just too high. We know where Amadinejad and the mullahs work, and we ought to know where they live. (And if we don’t know, the Israelis do and would be more than happy to lend a hand.) We have cruise missiles, Stealth fighters, and B-1 bombers that can fly from the US to Teheran, drop their lethal loads, then return to the US without ever landing en route. We have skilled, courageous Special Forces teams that can get themselves on the ground in Teheran quietly and fast.

The question is whether we still have within us the instinct for survival. If we do, then our only course is to act – now, this minute, however we can – and to take out the mullahs. Tonight.

Legitimising Terror
Vladimir Putin has decided to invite Hamas to Moscow for talks, an invititation backed by France as "potentially positive for the peace process". I wonder which peace process they're talking about since Hamas has no interest in peace but Russia (and now France as well) thinks that it's time for the world to accept the election results and deal with Hamas as a legitimate government. I guess once terrorists are elected to office they're magically not terrorists anymore and besides, according to Russia, Hamas never was a terrorist organisation.
Washington gave a guarded response to Russia's move but stopped short of denouncing it.

"At this point we have sought some clarification from the Russians as to what exactly their intentions are, what their plans are," said State Department spokesman Sean McCormack.

Israeli officials have pressed against any political contact with Hamas until its recognises Israel.

The Bride's Bouquet
Floral wedding bouquets have been a part of the ceremony for centuries. I thought it would be fun to post about the history of bridal bouquets in honor of Fay and RadioMattM's wedding today.
