Oh,Oh. More Unilateralism.
Isn’t that the reason the WTC was attacked?
Is Osama going to send terrorists to attack them too?
The United Nations quashed an investigation earlier this year into whether U.N. police were directly involved in the enslavement of Eastern European women in Bosnian brothels, according to U.N. officials and internal documents.
Sixty-eight percent of those surveyed said they were proud to be Filipino. This is lower than the 87 percent in the July 2001 survey.
The nineteen percent left for the US.
This story doesn’t get much play in the ‘mainstream’ press. As far as I know it has not yet been reported by the Portland (OR) Oregonian.
This actually puts into question the entire scientific basis for restrictions during the Clinton administration. What is factual and what is faked? This involved members of 3 different State and Federal agencies. The deception had been detected and dealt with as a minor offense. The people involved were only removed from working on the Lynx program but otherwise unrestricted. I still am unsure of when it happened.
Is this a recent thing or has it been covered up for some time. These restrictions hurt people, real people. The past eight years have shown that there is a lot of political clout to be gained on the backs of the residents of rural areas. They don’t have nearly as many votes as urban areas. Urban residents seem to see rural areas as some type of park for their enjoyment instead of a place where people live and work. Vast areas of the west are now off limits if you are not a yuppie backpacker.
More and more areas are being restricted. Special permits are required in others. If you are elderly or just out of shape, you cannot go to some areas. Motor vehicles are prohibited. Hunting is prohibited. Camping is prohibited. The Forest service will let you know where you are allowed to go and what you are allowed to take.
This is going no where. I’m just blowing off steam.
Here We go again.
Where is it written that the U.S. can only ally itself with countries that qualify for sainthood?
Somehow we managed to survive WWII being allied to Stalin who was a worse tyrant than even Hitler. Now we are supposed to check our allies bonefides with the intensity of the father of a 15 yo girl on her first date.
Whoops, Wrong Catastrophe

Oh, I see. I think. The scientists were wrong then, but are right now. I think.
[M]uch of academia and the media throughout the Anglosphere has come to resemble, in a way, the Church in Europe immediately before the Reformation. They have grown intellectually lazy, out of touch with the people they believe they exist to enlighten, and irrelevant to the needs they exist to serve. They have come to see their position, incomes and the respect of the public as entitlements due to them for their virtue, rather than earned by achievement.
