Naval battle between UAE and Saudi Arabia raises fears for Gulf security.

Woo-Ha ... what’s going on with these folks?  This is the very first I have heard (read) about these two being at loggerheads.
Is this getting any play at home in the states?  I can’t imagine it getting too much worse cos after all, they’d be hurting themselves along with the rest of the world that uses the sticky stuff. 

A naval clash in the Gulf has reignited fears over the security of the world’s most important shipping lanes and disputed oilfields.

By Richard Spencer in Dubai

The United Arab Emirates navy is thought to have opened fire on a small patrol vessel from Saudi Arabia after a dispute over water boundaries.

According to one report, two Saudi sailors were injured in the alleged bombardment.

The Saudi vessel was forced to surrender, and its sailors were delivered into custody in Abu Dhabi for several days, before being released and handed over to the Saudi embassy earlier this week.

The incident has shocked diplomats who hope the countries, both key American allies, will help implement the West’s strategy to constrain Iran’s nuclear and military ambitions.

The clash happened in disputed waters between the coasts of Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and the peninsula on which the gas-rich state of Qatar sits.

The seabed is rich with oil deposits, while the Dolphin pipeline project to carry natural gas direct from Qatar to Abu Dhabi has provoked irritation in the Saudi authorities. Nevertheless, direct conflict between the two countries’ armed forces is highly unusual.

The Gulf is one of the most heavily armed regions in the world. The Saudi government has been building up its army and air force for years in response to what it sees as a regional threat from Iran.

The UAE was slower to join the arms race, despite a long-running row with Iran over three Gulf islands previously under Abu Dhabi control which were seized by the late Shah in 1971 on the night the Emirates celebrated their independence.

But now the UAE, despite its small size, is the fourth largest purchaser of weaponry on the international market in the world.

School Daze, school days, Barking mad in Britain

School Daze, school days, Barking mad in Britain

I don’t enjoy posting articles like this, and it sure doesn’t make a country whose traditions and history I’ve admired look very good.  That’s because it just plain doesn’t look so well anymore.  The left wing social engineers and bleeding hearts and all their political correctness have wrecked this place.  Not totally, not yet, but I think they’re working hard at it.

There is absolutely no excuse in the world to tolerate this kind of crap.  It’s clear from this article and much else I’ve read, that there doesn’t seem to be enough support for the teacher in the classroom or for harsher punishment to deal with the class thugs.  Some of these little monsters are already so far out of control, that there does not appear to be any other way to deal with them except hanging.  Basically they’re bullies and cowards and I believe that if a few executions were to take place and watched by their peers, the problem might solve itself.  Or at least diminish to a point where other students and teachers will be safe in their own schools.  But there aren’t any examples being made that would deter the other punks. 

Yesterday a gang (up to 20) of black school (children?) went after one boy and caught him at a subway station and in front of a crown, stabbed him to death.

Schoolgirls in murder gang: Teenagers face quiz over stabbing that terrified commuters

There were also girls involved in that mob violence.  Turns out that they had been causing problems for some weeks before this, armed with screwdriver and knives.  The paper reported in this case that they were blacks and it just reminded me that while it was never on this horrible scale, 60 years ago in my country it was generally blacks and Puerto Ricans who carried blades and roamed in groups.  You just had to stay out of their territory.  They seldom ventured into the city center or a bus station or train station attacking news stands and destroying merchandise and stabbing anyone who happened to be there. I mean to say, it wasn’t a normal thing.  It wasn’t a normal thing in this country either, not until these folks suddenly discovered they had, RIGHTS! All sorts of RIGHTS. And the lawyers to back them up all paid for of course by the very people who are always at their mercy.  The taxpayer.  Who else has the money?

Another case came to light this week and again I simply ignored it due to the nature and it bothered us beyond imagination.  I mention it now because of the story being posted here and the one I described above.

A 13 yr old boy was caught raping a three year old baby. Come to find out, he’d abused her a few days previous to that.  He was caught by the girl’s mom.
The paper didn’t go into any great detail and nothing was mentioned as to whether or not she beat the creep up. Perhaps he was too big for her. Who knows.
Due to his tender age of course the courts don’t allow for his name or photo to be made public.  That’s a dame shame cos if anyone deserves hanging from the nearest tree, but only after having parts of him removed, this bastard does.  Again, it will never happen.  And so future victims are being created even as I type this rant.  And that’s what always gets my dander up and I lose the old temper.  Because I’m convinced beyond all doubt that future victims are out there all because a system that calls itself justice, dispenses little of that or none at all.

The unteachable pupils sent back to terrified staff despite assaults and sex attacks

By Laura Clark

It is a shocking document which lays bare the realities of teaching in increasingly unruly schools.

One teacher reports the case of a 14-year-old boy who attacked her and sexually assaulted a female classroom assistant.

Another boy, this time aged only five, threatened to stab a member of staff with a pair of scissors and threw chairs in his reception class.

Most disturbingly, the culprits have all been returned to the classroom against the wishes of teachers - often after initially being excluded or expelled.

Nine ‘unteachable’ children are described in a dossier produced by the NASUWT union. Five were expelled by head teachers only to be reinstated by governing bodies.

The union accuses governors of being more concerned with placating parents of troublemakers than protecting staff.

In the other four cases, head teachers themselves failed to take firm action, leaving classroom teachers in what they describe as an impossible position.

Chris Keates, NASUWT general secretary, said the dossier highlighted a ‘deeply worrying’ assault on teachers’ authority.

‘Governors seem to be taking the line of least resistance to placate the minority of parents rather than to protect the majority of pupils and their staff,’ she said.

‘If governors do not back head teachers’ professional judgment in these matters then staff and school leaders cannot manage behaviour with confidence.

‘Equally concerning is that, in the other cases, which were all serious incidents, the school took either no action or made the very weak response of temporary exclusion.’

short term work available!

Over five thousand years ago Moses said to the children of Israel

“Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land.”

Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said

“Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses and light up your camels, this is the Promised Land.”

Now Obama has stolen your shovels, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land.

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, and retirement funds, etc.,
that I called Lifeline ... and got a freakin’ call center in Pakistan. 

I told them I was suicidal and they got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck?

a classic, thanks to Carol

Be afraid

Thanks to Rich K, who emailed me the link and reminded me that we are so totally screwed. PLEASE read the linked story. Then please figure out how to curb the beast, given the established legal precedents and a politically influenced Supreme Court. I’m not seeing a way, outside of torches and pitchforks.

There are NO limits on federal power!

We’re going to be hearing a lot about the commerce clause, the dormant commerce clause, and preemption thanks to anti-federal health care lawsuits by state attorney generals. If they rely on the standard arguments made in such cases, they (and we) will surely lose.

Preemption is a concept of Article VI of the United States Constitution:

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof ... shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

The only condition that needs to be satisfied is that the federal law be shown to have been made pursuant to the Constitution. The reach of the interstate commerce clause is well-known and documented: Basically any activity or product that “affects interstate commerce” can be federally regulated.

What affects interstate commerce? Just about everything. In one of the few cases nullifying a federal law as exceeding the reach of the commerce clause, the majority challenged the dissenters to name an area of activity that the federal government cannot regulate. Needless to say, no answer was forthcoming. When the standard is “affecting interstate commerce,” there is no activity or product that is separated by more than one degree.

There appears to be no escape from the logic of the federal argument: Once a federal law has been shown to be made pursuant to the Constitution, state laws and/or constitutions are preempted. When the standard is as broad and as vague as “affecting interstate commerce,” there is no activity that cannot be regulated by the federal government.

If Congress has the power under the commerce clause to make all armed robberies affecting interstate commerce (that is, all armed robberies) federal crimes, then it may, according to the Clear Statement Doctrine, expressly nullify all state armed robbery laws in all states. If Congress has the power to nullify state armed robbery laws, then it has had that power from the beginning. If Congress has had that power from the beginning, then states have never had it: They merely exercised that power until Congress awakened its dormant commerce clause power.

One can substitute any activity or product affecting interstate commerce for armed robbery, and one would necessarily reach the same conclusion.

And everything can be shown to affect interstate commerce.

We need another amendment. I think we might need a revolution first. We certainly do not need this crop of tyrants in DC.

BREAKING NEWS: North Korea ‘torpedos and sinks’ South Korean navy ship with 104 sailors on board

The nut jobs running things in the starving north and of course that’s means Kim Jong one dong whoever.  Whatcha thinks folks?  War between the two after all these years?  Prolly not. 

But a Moonbat Award to:  Kim Jong-il of N. Korea.  Jerk.



By Mail Foreign Service
Last updated at 4:23 PM on 26th March 2010

A South Korean naval ship with 104 on board was sinking today after a suspected torpedo attack by North Korea.


The 1,500-tonne vessel is going down near Baengnyeong island, with rescue crews fearing many sailors have died.

In apparent retaliation, the South Korean navy shot at an unidentified ship in the direction of North Korea.

The incident is viewed as a potential flashpoint which could plunge the two countries into all-out conflict.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said that it is not clear what caused the ship to sink. It is believed 59 sailors have been rescued.

South Korea’s government has convened an emergency meeting of security ministers, according to state television.

Authorities say the ship began sinking around 10:45 pm local time (1.45pm GMT) in the Yellow Sea.

The dramatic escalation between the two countries comes after North Korea has warned that it was bolstering its defences in response to joint South Korean-U.S. military drills that were held this month.

North Korea had already threatened ‘unprecedented nuclear strikes’ against its southern neighbour and the U.S over claims they are planning to topple the communist regime.


[ Drew steps in ]

I was just going to post on this one but Peiper beat me to it. Lots of links on the story everywhere.

The Winnipeg Sun is reporting that several of the sailors were killed.

Reuters is saying that the South Koreans are now saying that they are not sure that the North Koreans were involved. Politics!

Wikipedia says this ship, the Cheonan, named for a city in NW South Korea, was a member of the Pohang class of corvettes. Global Security confirms this. The Pohang class ships are about 290 feet long, armed with one or two 76mm guns, 2 30mm or 40mm rapid fire guns, and a small batch of anti-ship missiles. Mainly they are used for coastal patrol and anti-submarine duty.


These are not large ships, but they are still quite a bit bigger than the 165 foot motor gunboats pictured on South Korean television (see Yahoo News link above) and at the Daily Mail link Peiper sourced.

Stay tuned to this story. My guess is it will all blow over, and that the sinking will be attributed to some sort of accident, even though I think it was a mine that did her in.

UPDATE: That didn’t take long! Now the claim is the ship suffered a wardrobe malfunction accidentally set off some explosives onboard. Uh huh, right. Sure. Right off the Nork’s coast. I’m sure they were set off accidentally. By a torpedo or an anti-ship missile accidentally coming through the side of the ship and blowing up. Politics. Probably got a call from Obama who told them “not now dammit!” It’s such an obvious lie.

Almost The Weekend

While looking around the ‘net for some new “teeth” to send McGoo ( I realize his supply must be running low - he’s reduced to posting pics of hovercat and pigeon statues! ) I found this striking young lady.


Ok, everyone has different tastes and standards of attractiveness. Peiper and others prefer the softer, rounder kind of ladies. A lot of Brits have this phobia about the “ginge”. Beats me. I’d say this young lady is about as close to my idea of feminine perfection as I’ve seen in a long time. Tall, leggy, slightly athletic, rich head of striking hair, fairly pretty face and a bold look, nice eyes and smile. Slender but still appropriately curvy. Glowing with the natural beauty of youth. Thank you God.


Why oh why did she have to go an mess up such a gift? Sure, the gakky nails are press-ons, so who cares? But the ink? I am just not a fan of tattoos. Not even the best of them could make her look any better. I don’t understand the attraction. It’s like painting a mustache and devil horns on the Mona Lisa. Generation gap I guess. Tattoos are for sailor-men, sideshow freaks, outlaw bikers and whores. Fine for guys in the military who’ve earned their place and wear a service related one with pride. One. But on women it’s always low class. Always. Lydia the Tattooed Lady, carnival tramp. Yuk. So not me.

Here’s the NSFW link to much more of Kato, where she mostly proves that the work on her arm is the only tattoo she has anywhere. So far. I think that ink reads “Desperation”, which makes no sense to me whatsoever.

Took us off line yesterday and stayed that way after a nice lot of lightening and thunder.  Never went back on line afterwards but just before I closed everything, I got this. The American Embassy newsletter.  I thought some might find this of interest.  Wish we could wall ourselves off from the rest of the world sometimes but that isn’t any kind of solution either.  Hey, do the taxpayers of the USA pay for this summit thing?  I just don’t feel too warm and fuzzy or friendly toward these folks.  Every time I see one I think 9/11 and other terror attempts that followed. Might not be smart or fair but sorry, it’s hard to shake off ill feelings regarding this group.

A New Beginning: U.S. Summit on Entrepreneurship

By Phillip Kurata
Staff Writer

Washington — Entrepreneurs from more than 50 countries with sizable Muslim populations come to Washington in April on President Obama’s invitation to celebrate the risky, exhilarating life of entrepreneurship and share ideas about sparking new businesses in their communities.

The April 26–27 conference — A New Beginning: The Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship — builds on President Obama’s speech to the Muslim world in Cairo June 4, 2009. He promised to host a summit on entrepreneurship “to identify how we can deepen ties between business leaders, foundations and social entrepreneurs in the United States and Muslim communities around the world.”

“We now seek a broader engagement” that involves greater exchanges in education, health, science and shared ideals, he said in Cairo.

The conference will highlight the role that entrepreneurs play in communities in creating jobs and improving societies. Results expected from the gathering are new programs, partnerships, relationships and networks, which will encourage starting new businesses and social projects.

In all, about 250 people of various religious backgrounds are expected to participate in the meeting. They will come from Africa; the Middle East; South, Central and Southeast Asia; and Muslim communities in other regions and countries, including the United States.

Spread the Panic, Ignore the Truth

I think about a million TV news stations, newspapers, online news sites, and blogs reported that someone had taken a shot at Congressman Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) office. Panic in the streets! Wild West Redneck Rampage!! Crazy Rightwingnuts!!

Not that I have much doubt that a significant number of citizens are this close to violent revolution over this government and the health care bill.

From what I recall, our American Revolution was supported by about 1/3 of the people living here at the time. And less than 1/10 of them were actually out there fighting. One tenth of one third? That’s the 3 Percent thing you may have heard about.

Anyway, it was all over the news, with endless press coverage and attempts at political leveraging.

Here’s the truth. Don’t expect it to get much press coverage.

Bullet that hit Va. congressman’s office random

By BOB LEWIS (AP) – 16 hours ago

RICHMOND, Va. — Richmond police say the bullet that hit a window of Republican Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor’s office had been randomly fired skyward.

Amid reports of threats and vandalism against Democrats who voted Sunday for sweeping health care reforms, Cantor said at a Washington news conference Thursday that a bullet was fired into his Richmond office.

In a news release, Richmond police said that the bullet had been fired into the air early Tuesday. It hit the front window of a building that houses Cantor’s campaign office as it fell to back earth at a sharp angle.

The round landed on the floor of the office a foot inside a broken window pane. No one was in the building, and police say an investigation has yielded no suspects.

Had such a bullet been deliberately aimed, for it to have such a near vertical trajectory on impact and lack of energy means it was fired from a long, LONG distance away. Well over a mile. Here’s an example, using a very aerodynamic and accurate target bullet, fired at full velocity from a common long range target rifle.


The bullet drops nearly 1600 inches from the line of sight. 130 feet! Which means the barrel had to be tilted way way way up just to aim, and most rifle sights can’t move that much. Wind takes it’s toll as well. Even a light breeze can push the bullet more than 80 feet to the side at such a range. And all us shooters know about the transonic stability issue; accuracy degrades a lot when the bullet slows down to subsonic velocity. This bullet hit the window at about 600 feet per second, perhaps less. My ballistics software can’t calculate beyond 2500 meters (2734 yards or 1.5 miles).

So no, it was NOT a terroristic act of violent protest or anything like that. It was just a stray, pure random chance, and a rotten coincidence.

*** Can bullets shoot that far? Yes they can. And the really big ones can still hit with some power. Here’s a fun read from a military test done 130 years ago, shooting at TWO MILES. So be aware of what’s beyond your target when you go shooting. Remember that you are responsible for that bullet from the time you buy it until the time it stops moving once fired.

This Is Some Kind Of Torture

GOP Forces New House Vote on Health Care Bill

The follow-up health care bill being considered by the Senate will have to return to the House for final congressional approval, after the Senate parliamentarian determined that two Republican challenges will succeed in stripping out language in the package.

The follow-up health care bill being considered by the Senate will have to return to the House for final congressional approval, after the Senate parliamentarian determined that two Republican challenges will succeed in stripping out language in the package.

Altering the bill in any way means it has to return to the House side, which first approved the package of changes Sunday, since both chambers must pass identical versions.

Democrats don’t appear worried. Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, said the House could easily approve the expected changes. The Senate is expected to complete work on the bill Thursday afternoon, and the House could take it up again the same day—or push it off until Friday.

The package of changes, which is being considered under “reconciliation” rules allowing the Senate to approve it with just 51 votes, is the final piece of the legislative puzzle to the health care reform package signed into law Tuesday. Health care reform is officially enacted, but House Democrats wanted the package of fixes to change the way it’s financed and address other concerns.

The glitches have to do with Pell grants for low-income students.

For starters, student loans have no business whatsoever being in this bill. Flog the sumnabitch who put it in there.

Next, the federal government has no business at all taking over the student loan business. And if they do, I’ll tell what what the REAL outcome will be: “reparations”. That’s right white boy, no college loans for you. Hey you southern redneck, you’re not wanted at Yale. Because when the feds control the money, they control who gets an edumacation. And you damn well better believe that all the members of the permanent victim class are at the head of the line. ALWAYS.

Lastly, is there any hope at all that this fiasco can be defeated the second time through, now that the elites in DC have seen how many death threats, protests, and near riots their actions have caused? I’m beginning to get the feeling they’re just fucking with us. That this piece of unconstitutional tripe is some form of torture to keep us wound up tight, blood pressure peaking, RCOB ... while they sneak some other dirty deal through while nobody is watching.

Personally, I’d prefer waterboarding. Like a high powered neti pot, I bet that cleans your sinuses out but good, and we’re right at the beginning of allergy season.

This thing is like some kind of nightmare merry-go-round that never ends. Well, it’s more like a bullshit centrifuge, hip deep and high speed, and none of us can get off the ride.

Several thousand pages for the first bill, and the ink isn’t even dry yet, and now there’s a follow up bill. Nobody knows what’s in the first one, God himself has to guess at the contents of the second. And is even the new one the “doctor fix” bill we’ve heard about? I don’t think so; I haven’t heard it called by that name. So there’s a Part Three coming our way next. Or not. Who knows? This is insanity.

Global warming scepticism forces Science Museum to rename ‘climate change’ gallery

caught my eye late yesterday.  meanwhile, in an article today, someone is raising alarm over the rising sea and claims that at some point in the future England will have Portugal’s climate.
hmmm.  well, that will please the brits who hate theirs.

Global warming scepticism forces Science Museum to rename ‘climate change’ gallery

By Kate Loveys
Last updated at 10:12 AM on 24th March 2010

The Science Museum is acknowledging growing scepticism about climate change by changing the name and contents of a new gallery devoted to the subject.

London’s 100-year-old museum is to abandon the name ‘climate change gallery’ in favour of the neutral ‘climate science gallery’, its director has confirmed.

And it will refrain from scaring visitors with apocalyptic predictions of rising sea levels at its £4million gallery by adopting a less bias approach, acknowledging legitimate doubts about the impact to man-made emissions on the climate.

The move reveals how deeply scientific institutions have been shaken by the public’s reaction to revelations of malpractice by climate scientists.

It recently emerged that scientists have been encouraged to manipulate climate change data to support the Government’s position.

As a result the public has grown increasingly sceptical about the impact of climate change. An Ipsos Mori survey last month found 30 per cent of the public thought the issue is being exaggerated.

The Science Museum initially took a strong stance on climate change, launching a temporary exhibition last October called ‘Prove It! All the evidence you need to believe in climate change’.

Nicolas Sarkozy has said that France will ban the full Muslim veil.

image VIVE la FRANCE

I imagine there might be riots among the righteous assuming there are any real ones.  Interesting to see if this will work and how it will be enforced.

The fact is, in Western societies, seeing folks walking around masked is intimidating and is not part of western culture. Or it hasn’t been. I truly wish Sarko wouldn’t use the old saw about unfair to women which I’m sure for many it is.  For many others, they claim they like it. Who can say they are all lying?
But if it means that much to em, let them go to a country where it’s the norm.  I wish Sarkozy would say that as well. The idea that it would as he says, protect the dignity of women, reminds me of all the crap this govt. (and ours at home too) introduce and enforce because, it’s all for the kids.  (subject of a post to follow)
I think it’s done for the reason that it just plain and clearly IS NOT FRENCH.
Stay Tuned on this one.

Meanwhile, Good for France!  (I hope)

France to ban veil says Nicolas Sarkozy

Published: 7:00AM GMT 25 Mar 2010

The move would protect the dignity of women, the president added.

“The full veil is contrary to the dignity of women,” he said. “The response is to ban it. The Government will table a draft law prohibiting it.”

The president gave no further details during his address to the nation following a heavy defeat in regional elections for his ruling Union for a Popular Movement party.

Speaking from the Elysee Palace Mr Sarkozy gave no indication as to how an outright ban would be imposed and policed.

France is home to six million Muslims.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
