Wednesday May 8, 2007

I fuss too much about trying to find unique post titles when the obvious solution stares me in the face:

  1. The Fort Dix suicide attack.  Think of it from the point of view of the alleged attackers.  You’re going to give up your life to make a point.  Why waste it to kill at most a half-dozen American soldiers – about what are killed in a day in Iraq – and probably not kill anyone at all at the very well-guarded base, when you could do much more harm in other ways?  When you add the fact that they dropped their jihad tapes off at a local video store to be DVD’d, they spoke openly to a Philadelphia police sergeant about obtaining maps of Fort Dix, they were infiltrated at an early stage (probably before they actually decided to do anything, with the juiciest plans suggested by the infiltrator, just like in Canada), the authorities start with an attack on Fort Dix and s-l-i-d-e into an attack on a football game, and the ‘terrorists’ played paintball (!), they is almost no chance that this was any more than some young guys who were fooling around and were duped by the authorities.  When are young Muslim men going to wake up and realize they have targets on their backs?  An innocent game of paintball could land you in jail for the rest of your life.

  2. My Chinese conspiracy theory is turning out to be true, with all kinds of iffy data suddenly appearing about how unsafe food from China really is.  You gotta love the ‘science’: “Scientists had difficulty pinpointing the precise cause of the deaths, for neither melamine nor cyanuric acid are thought to be particularly toxic by themselves. But scientists studying the pet food deaths say the combination of the two chemicals, mixed together with perhaps some other related compounds, may have created a toxic punch that formed crystals in the kidneys of pets and led to kidney failure.” 

  3. I continue to believe that the truth behind the Pentagon attack will only be revealed when rescue workers start to have elevated cancer rates due to exposure to the DU which the plane which allegedly hit the Pentagon did not contain (the DU was in the nose of whatever hit the Pentagon).  It will be another 10 years before the cancer issue becomes apparent.

  4. Via Wot Is It Good 4, the ongoing debate whether rumors of the neocon demise are a trick to make us stop paying attention to them, so they can continue their dirty tricks.  I think it is fair to say that the neocons are gravely weakened, but, as long as psychos like Abrams still hang their fangs in the Bush Administration, there is still a huge danger of disaster.
