Thursday, briefly

Yeah, sure you will: Apparently, the Iranians think that they can close the Strait of Hormuz if the UN enacts any more sanctions against them. I’m thinking not, and so does the Fifth Fleet. And the Iranians think this is some kind of important announcement: They videotaped a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Gulf of Oman. Um. It would be hard not to catch the floating city on tape. Nobody really believes they’re going to shut down the Straight, anyway. Saudi Arabia has announced it will increase production, and the blockade would harm China way more than the U.S., and the Iranians know that. Posturing, that’s all.

The awesome feminism of Islamic law: Iran is going to execute a woman for adultery. Only they’re not going to stone this one, they’re going to hang her. Don’t you infidels get how merciful they are? I just love hearing people tell me that Sharia law isn’t nearly as bad as we make it out to be. You know, the one that says that a woman’s opinion in court is worth half that of a man, and the one that allows men to have multiple wives but not women to have multiple husbands–awesome equality. Just breathtaking. Ask any Saudi woman.

Turkey massacres Kurdish civilians: Turkey bombed a group of civilians in northern Iraq, killing 35 of them, most of the teenagers smuggling fuel into Turkey. And not very many people care. Bet you didn’t even know they did it. Imagine the outrage if Israel had hit 35 civilians while bombing a Hamas terror target. Let’s review: Turkey violated the border of a sovereign nation to stop a terrorist group from killing its own civilians. Sound familiar? Of course it does. Will there be a world outcry? Don’t make me laugh. Double standard much? Always.

The UN: We honor dictators, too! The United Nations lowered its flags out of “respect” for Kim Jong-il’s death. I don’t know how they manage it, but they managed to lower my respect for them even more. Not that I have any left. Its sort of a “divide by infinity” thing now.

    How’d you miss these? Saudi women can now be involved politically without their husband’s approval! And they can now purchase lingerie from saleswomen. Wow, sounds like they just ushered in the 18th century there.

  2. Strait, not straight (although given the anti actions in Iran, “straight” is pretty funny).

    The lowering of the United Nations flag for the death of Kim Jong-il is no surprise (because after all, North Korea has contributed to the need for the foolishness and fraus of the UN). I wonder what they will do with the flag at the death of a nondespot who is Jewish? Raise the flag two polelengths?

    I am never surprised by women stoning women in Saudi Arabia for adultery, sorcery, or jaywalking. Maybe that would be a good way to have turnover in the US House of Representatives because the women there show no inclination to leave and fly on Pelosi’s brooms.

  3. Fixed.

    Uh, I didn’t say women will be stoning the woman. I was under the impression that they’re not allowed to mix with the men for this particular barbarism.

  4. I did see those articles about Saudi women, just didn’t mention them for some reason. I’ve lost that loving feeling regarding blogging these days.

    Surely you came across the pics of Muslim practice in British schools where the girls pray in a group well separated from and behind the boys?
    And those menstruating not allowed to be with the other girls?
