Arab States Silent on Iran's Remarks
Iran wants to "wipe out" Israel and the Arab states say not a word. Analysts think that the reason for the silence is that most Arab regimes are pleased to see the Mullahs become even more marginalised than they already are; I think those same Arab regimes wouldn't mind too much having Israel "wiped out" either. But at least someone spoke up:
However, some Palestinians — who would have the task of destroying Israel according to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — rejected the remarks.

"We have recognized the state of Israel and we are pursuing a peace process with Israel, and ... we do not accept the statements of the president of Iran," Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said. "This is unacceptable."
Btw, Koffi expressed "dismay" at Ahmadinejad's statement. I'm sure Ahmadinejad is shaking in his boots now.

Harriet Miers withdraws, and the bullies win their way
I've never been so ashamed to be a conservative as I am right now. A woman with stellar qualifications and an amazing personal history of accomplishment against long odds, one who would most likely have made a fine Justice, was booed off the stage by a bunch of unelected boors with megaphones in a trial-by-blog/opinion column. The Senate never even got a chance to interview the President's nominee correction before the mob tore her to pieces and she withdrew, her morale and self-respect in tatters.

Seriously, fuck you. You know who you are, all of you. Shame on you.

[The American Thinker has extensive (and more thoughtful) coverage. I'm just pissed off.]

Iranians in the Gulf of Mexico
Great. Iran is setting up a base of operations in the Gulf of Mexico.
Earlier this year, a top Iranian General made the following boast: “Iran is the biggest military power in the region (with) 10 million volunteers for martyrdom operations ... to turn Iran into a terrible nightmare for the United States," General Mohammad Bagher Zolghadr, deputy commander of Iran’s hardline Revolutionary Guards, told the Kayhan newspaper.

This summer, the BBC reported an ad in an Iranian publication has calling for volunteers for "martyrdom operations" against the enemies of Islam. The ad was published by an institute managed by one of Iran's most conservative and radical clerics, Ayatollah Masbah Yazdi, who has declared his support for Iran's new President, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad. It recruits men and women to enlist with the "Martyrdom Lovers' Headquarters".

So I find it more than a little ironic that the same country that is actively recruiting volunteers to conduct suicide missions against United States and US interests, and is openly bragging about it, has now been granted a base of operations in the Gulf of Mexico, within easy striking distance of America’s Gulf Coast.

The Iranian Offshore Engineering and Construction Company is expected to begin shortly a major $90 million dollar project laying pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico. The company says it will be laying 36-inch pipes 60-70 meters under water.

The company expects to be handing the rest of the $400 million dollar project as well.

According to a press release on IRNA, “The Gulf of Mexico project will help the Iranian company gain valuable experiences given the large presence of European and American companies in the area."

The press release also states that the “project will need many divers and sophisticated technology."

Is anyone in our government paying attention here?

A country which has made one threat after another against the US for over two and a half decades, is now being provided in essence a base of operations in the Gulf of Mexico, within striking distance of much of the US oil supply.

They will have carte blanche to bring in divers, submersibles, and highly sophisticated technical equipment. Since they will be in essence subcontractors for the Mexican oil industry, they will most likely be able to circumvent export controls for many types of hardware and software that would not normally be eligible for export to Iran.

Hello? Is anyone listening?

ratty.gif I finally got around to making an emoticon for Rugby and Soccer!

DL_jackolantern.gif And while I was at it, I modified one of the "blues" to make this seasonal icon.

blue_alien.gif I've used this guy a few times in comments, as "The Anthropologist from Boustrophedon-5" (Or is it "Boustrophedon-7"? I can't keep his solar system straight.) Anyway, it occurred to me that the persona of an anthropologist from another planet could be a useful referee for those "culture clash" threads that sometimes come up. See, he's like an ideally naive observer, with no preconceived notions or biases relating to either side, whether it's Jews vs. Gentiles, Americans vs. Europeans, men vs. women... you get the idea. Anyway, I initially modified him from one of the "Blues," and stayed within the 20x20 dimensions of the original. But then I decided that he needed some other element suggestive of anthropology, so I gave him a camera:

trans_tini.gif Um, I gave this one a transparent background so that it wouldn't have that white square around it.

evariste in Discarded Lies:
Biological Parenthood, Meet Legal Responsibility
The estimable Theodore Dalrymple looks at an interesting situation in Sweden. It seems a sympathetic, liberal man donated sperm to a lesbian couple who desired to conceive. The couple broke up, and the Swedish social security department successfully sued to force him to participate financially in the child's upbringing. Dalrymple wonders why it is such a calamity for a demonstrable biological father to be asked to support his own children, and sees a kind of spiritual malaise in a society where people consider that they have every right to the fulfillment of their desires, no matter how improbable, but every right to avoid responsibility for the stark material facts, no matter how plain. Is he right? I'm really conflicted about this. On the one hand, I can see the guy's predicament-he thought he was doing his lesbian friend a favor, not signing up for an eighteen-year financial commitment. On the other hand, the brutal biological fact is that he is the father. Not being married to a mother is not considered an out for a biological father seeking to avoid paying child support; why should it be different simply because the mother is a lesbian? Dalrymple says:
the idea that one “condemns" a man to support children is in itself both revealing and chilling.
That really gets me. Maybe Swedish family law should catch up to the new family structures that postmodern European ethics are legitimizing; maybe Swedish family law should stay wedded to naked biological genealogy. I have to say I'm inclined to agree with Dalrymple that those who choose to have families that represent the triumph of mind over matter (or memes over genes) should not be surprised at their own predicament when mind turns out to be fickler than fantasy.

I'd love to see what you think of this as a gay parent, V the K. Should a biological parent have the responsibilities of a legal parent? Should a child unfortunate enough to be in this situation suffer an penurious upbringing simply because one of its biological parents was nothing more than a sperm donor? I'm starting to incline towards the view that a sperm donor should have the same responsibilities that he would have if he was a paramour of the mother. My friend D is the father of a child that he did not desire to conceive and was deceived into conceiving, so I'm very torn on this issue. His frequent complaints about the mother, M's scamming nature when she calls him in the middle of the night to ask for money for an emergency that he can't verify the reality of, when she won't even allow him to see his daughter, give me a vantage point on family law that makes it really hard for me to lay down a black-and-white opinion on this matter.
