A Farce Ends
That marketing exercise/pathetic display of wimpy bluster by Russia's and China's militaries has now ended with a stunning victory over their imaginary enemy. Did anyone think they would lose? :-)
BEIJING -- Thousands of Chinese and Russian troops wrapped up their first joint military exercises Thursday with a mock invasion by paratroopers on China's east coast.

The eight-day maneuvers with 7,000 Chinese troops and 1,800 Russians underscored growing military ties between the former Cold War enemies, motivated by their common unease with U.S. dominance in world affairs.

On Thursday, Chinese and Russian paratroopers simulated the seizure of an airfield as planes dropped combat vehicles by parachute on the Shandong Peninsula in the Yellow Sea, China's official Xinhua News Agency reported.

Propaganda leaflets fell from the sky in ''a psychological tactic to shake the enemy's will,'' according to Xinhua.

''The exercise ended with the defeat of the 'enemy,' '' the agency said.

Russia's Interfax news agency also portrayed the operation as a success, saying Russian planes landed 10 combat vehicles and two armored personnel carriers by parachute in high winds.

''The military exercise deserves a high praise,'' Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov was quoted as saying.
It's cute to see these incompetent Potemkin militaries playing at war.

Rapex: The Anti-Rape Condom
In South Africa, land of disarmed civilians and baby rape, fifty thousand women report being raped every year. Many more are raped but don't report it. Now an enterprising South African inventor has developed a vaginally-inserted tampon-sized device that acts something like a candiru-it gets its hooks into the attacker's penis, causing intense pain to him and giving the woman an opportunity to escape. Does anyone have a problem with this? Of course they do. Stupid "activists" who reflexively oppose any form of self-defense do.

I think it's a brilliant idea. Possible drawbacks: if he's bleeding in there, he might infect you with something (but he was raping you anyway, so you were already in trouble. I don't think your generic South African rapist troubles himself with condoms). He might also become enraged and beat his victim to death-but being killed was already a risk when you're being raped, and at least you now have caused him pain intense enough to give you the opportunity to make a run for it.

Picture and story after the jump; picture is definitely haram and may be NSFW...

Chaos in New Orleans
I'm outraged by what's happening in New Orleans and I'm wondering how prepared are we really for any catastrophe. There are people dying out in the street, days after the hurricane. There are thousands of people laying on the ground in the open air, with no food or water, sick, old, small children. Why has help been so slow to get to them? How can this be happening?

New Orleans evacuation slows as shooting, chaos erupt

Who's Engaging Whom
Pakistan has decided to "engage" with Israel, much to the distress of Hamas, and that's good news. But the article headline, signs of Israeli diplomatic thaw with Muslim world, makes it sound like it's Israel's fault that most Islamic nations will have no relations with her. Thanks, Reuters.

The changing face of the far right
Vlaams Belang, a far right party, is the second largest in the Flemish (Dutch-speaking) part of Belgium, with more than 25 percent support from voters. The other parties have adopted a policy of boycotting Vlaams Belang because of the party's violent and racist style and content. Filip Dewinter, leader of Vlaams Belang, is trying to break the boycott and legitimise the party's image by courting Israel and the Jewish community.
"I'm interested in visiting Israel," Dewinter says in the interview. "First of all, from a geopolitical point of view. We in Western Europe should realize that our allies are not in the Arab or Muslim world, but rather in Israel. This is not just because we have a common civilization and values, but also to balance out the Islamic forces in the Middle East that are getting stronger. The State of Israel is a sort of outpost for our Western society, an outpost of democracy, of freedom of speech, of protecting common values within a hostile environment. You are surrounded by Islamic states, some of them fundamentalist, which are interested in only one thing: to throw the Jews into the sea.

"I also think that Islam is now the No. 1 enemy not only of Europe, but of the entire free world. After communism, the greatest threat to the West is radical fundamentalist Islam. There are already 25-30 million Muslims on Europe's soil and this becomes a threat. It's a real Trojan horse. Thus, I think that an alliance is needed between Western Europe and the State of Israel. I think we in Western Europe are too critical of Israel and we should support Israel in its struggle to survive. I think we should support Israel more than we do because its struggle is also very important for us."

But Dewinter admits that he wants to visit Israel for other reasons. "It's very important to me as leader of a right-wing national party [he rejects defining the party as "far right" - A.S.] to say that we respect the State of Israel and the Jews. To all of those who regard us as neo-Nazis, we say: `No, we want good relations with the Jews.' We should distance ourselves from all of those individuals and groups with anti-Semitic tendencies and from Holocaust deniers. I have no connection with these things. Because I am a leader of a right-wing party, some of the Jewish leaders in Antwerp do not believe that I am sincere. They think that this is a pose, that I am doing this to avoid being regarded as a neo-Nazi and that I am afraid they will call me a fascist. I'm interested in visiting Israel to express my affinity, but also to prove that I'm sincere."

Iran Behind Lockerbie?
A retired top Scottish cop is admitting that evidence implicating Libya in the Lockerbie atrocity was planted by the CIA, and according to this article, it was actually Palestinian terrorists funded by the Iranians who did it. Pretty interesting stuff.
Then, in 2003, a retired CIA officer gave a statement to Megrahi's lawyers in which he alleged evidence had been planted.

The decision of a former Scottish police chief to back this claim could add enormous weight to what has previously been dismissed as a wild conspiracy theory. It has long been rumoured the fragment was planted to implicate Libya for political reasons.

The first suspects in the case were the Syrian-led Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command (PFLP-GC), a terror group backed by Iranian cash. But the first Gulf War altered diplomatic relations with Middle East nations, and Libya became the pariah state.

Following the trial, legal observers from around the world, including senior United Nations officials, expressed disquiet about the verdict and the conduct of the proceedings at Camp Zeist, Holland. Those doubts were first fuelled when internal documents emerged from the offices of the US Defence Intelligence Agency. Dated 1994, more than two years after the Libyans were identified to the world as the bombers, they still described the PFLP-GC as the Lockerbie bombers.

A source close to Megrahi's defence said: "Britain and the US were telling the world it was Libya, but in their private communications they acknowledged that they knew it was the PFLP-GC.

"The case is starting to unravel largely because when they wrote the script, they never expected to have to act it out. Nobody expected agreement for a trial to be reached, but it was, and in preparing a manufactured case, mistakes were made."

Dr Jim Swire, who has publicly expressed his belief in Megrahi's innocence, said it was quite right that all relevant information now be put to the SCCRC.

Swire, whose daughter Flora was killed in the atrocity, said last night: "I am aware that there have been doubts about how some of the evidence in the case came to be presented in court.

"It is in all our interests that areas of doubt are thoroughly examined."

A spokeswoman for the Crown Office said: "As this case is currently being examined by the SCCRC, it would be inappropriate to comment."

No one from the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland was available to comment.
