Kyoto troubles... [05 Jun 2005|11:52pm]

dementedchicken
Hey, all. First post in the community, and I'm asking for help. Way to make a first impression, huh?

I've recently found myself to be a liberatarian, but I still hold true the namesake of this community. That being said, in my biology class, we have been assigned to groups to debate environmental problems, such as people "representing" the American Cancer Society vs. Philip Morris, pro-stem vs. anti-stem, so on and so forth. I've been assigned to be in the group opposing the united states entering the Kyoto Protocol, thankfully. Now, we will have a day or two under a ridiculously oppressive web filter to research our points, and I was wondering if the people in this community could offer me some insight, valuable points, and possibly some links. Since responses to this post will be brought to my attention in my mail, which I can access under the web filter, I can check what you guys have to say about it. Thankfully, the three dumbest people in the class are on the other side of the argument, so please help me rip them to shreds in front of my mostly liberal class.

Once again the liberals shoot themselves in the foot.  They tried to smear our troops and caused riots, deaths, and more anti-American sentiment.  And it just might be one big lie.

Hi, I just joined here and I wanted to share this with you guys because it's really stupid, and you'll all probably agree with me.

The fact that they make a generalization that if you're a republican you hate gays and ONLY republicans hate gays is fucking stupid! People do this shit all the time, and when I said something about it, they all flipped out.

This is why I hate liberals.

College Cancels Professor's Appearance
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,146039,00.html
Tuesday, February 01, 2005

CLINTON, NY — Hamilton College (search) said Tuesday it has received death threats and was canceling a panel discussion featuring a professor who provoked a furor when he compared Sept. 11 victims to Nazis.

Hamilton spokesman Michael DeBraggio said multiple death threats were made against both college officials and guest speaker Ward Churchill, who resigned Monday as chairman of the ethnic studies department at the University of Colorado (search).

In an essay written in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 (search) terrorist attacks, Churchill said the World Trade Center victims were "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, who organized Nazi plans to exterminate Europe's Jews. Churchill also spoke of the "gallant sacrifices" of the "combat teams" that struck America.

The essay attracted little attention until Churchill was invited to speak at Thursday at Hamilton College, about 40 miles east of Syracuse, N.Y.

Despite resigning from his department chair, he will retain his teaching job.

Ahh... Words of wisdom from Ann Coulter:

"Historically, the best way to convert liberals is to have them move out of their parents' home, get a job, and start paying taxes."

"Teddy Kennedy crawls out of the Boston Harbor with a quart of Scotch in one pocket and a pair of pantyhose in the other, and the Democrats hail him as their party's spiritual leader".

Essence of being a liberal: "The absolute conviction that there is one set of rules for you, and another, completely different set of rules for everyone else."


Oh so true.....

Rumsfeld Tells U.S. Troops in Iraq They Can Win
Dec 24, 2004
http://reuters.myway.com/article/20041224/2004-12-24T135045Z_01_L24698509_RTRIDST_0_NEWS-IRAQ-DC.html
By Alister Bull

FALLUJA, Iraq (Reuters) - Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld paid a surprise Christmas visit to Iraq on Friday, seeing victims of a suicide bombing at a U.S. base in Mosul and troops who stormed the city of Falluja last month.

Having flown in amid great secrecy on trip that took in four cities and wound up with commanders in Baghdad, he told them the war could be won despite what seemed a bleak outlook to some.

Under fire at home but applauded by the troops, he assured them of his "respect" and told them he was doing all he could to improve their equipment -- a sensitive topic many asked about.

His trip began in Mosul, where he pinned a Purple Heart medal on one of dozens wounded when a suicide bomber in Iraqi uniform blasted a mess tent on Tuesday, killing 22 people, 18 of them Americans. It was the costliest single incident for Americans since the start of the war.

The attack, which has hit Americans' trust in the very Iraqi forces they hope to train to take over from them, highlighted the continued potency of an insurgency that the assault on Falluja was supposed to quell before next month's election.

Conceding prospects of victory might look grim -- he spoke of times "when it looks bleak, when one worries how it's going to come out" -- Rumsfeld said in Mosul: "There is no doubt in my mind this is achievable."

Outgoing Secretary of State Colin Powell told President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair last month that there were too few troops in Iraq, the Washington Post said in a report likely to spark new debate on a controversial issue.

Following a stop in Saddam Hussein's home town of Tikrit, Rumsfeld went on to Falluja, where more than 80 U.S. Marines and more than 1,000 guerrillas have been killed in the past six weeks. Three Marines were killed in the area only on Wednesday.

He said: "This is a tough situation here in Iraq. It is dangerous, people are being wounded, people are being killed."

FALLUJA ANGER

Despite 21 months of sustained offensive operations against diehard nationalist remnants of Saddam's old guard and, now, Islamist fighters, some of whom have come in from abroad, U.S. forces seem no nearer ending violence in much of the country.

Tuesday's attack in Mosul, claimed by Islamist group Ansar al-Sunna, struck at the heart of efforts to bring Iraqi forces on board and lent weight to U.S. commanders' fears that many top militants fled Falluja before the battle, some making for Mosul.

Also worrying ahead of an election that some in Saddam's once dominant Sunni Arab minority decry as unfair, are signs of new resentment building from the ruins of Falluja, a Sunni bastion, where people have been trickling back to their homes.

A day after the first few official returnees were let in, people spoke with anger of damage sustained. There was little sign of gratitude for American efforts to dislodge militants.

Fighting continues in parts of the city, where U.S. aircraft were again in action overnight. Guerrillas also struck police stations in Baquba, and clashed with U.S. forces there.

Rumsfeld, who warned this week that the Jan. 30 election would not end nearly two years of bloodshed, told about 200 Marines at a town hall-style meeting: "The great sweep of human history is for freedom and you are on the right side of that."

After he met Iraq's U.S.-backed interim president in Baghdad, Ghazi al-Yawar said: "We want to think big. We know the situation is tough but I have no doubt in my mind that we will succeed. It's just a matter of time."

SECRET VISIT

Rumsfeld said his trip to Iraq had been planned for a while but was kept secret for security reasons and Tuesday's attack had not been a factor in selecting Mosul for a visit.

"I am deeply grateful to all of you. You will look back in 10 or 20 or 30 years and know you were a part of something very important," Rumsfeld told dozens of soldiers in Mosul.

"I respect you. I wish you all a merry Christmas."

He conceded that bloody anarchy in Mosul in recent weeks may have been caused by guerrillas from Falluja: "I don't doubt for a moment that some of these folks in Falluja went up to Mosul."

U.S. troops were on alert at bases across Iraq after the suicide bombing: "I am concerned about ... copycat attacks," said Brigadier General Carter Ham, the U.S. commander in Mosul.

"So we have to be on our best guard over the coming days, weeks and months for that kind of threat," Ham told CNN.

He said the bomber probably wore an Iraqi uniform of the kind increasingly common on U.S. bases as Americans train local forces that they hope will allow them to go home.

The attack was a fresh nightmare for troops battling guerrillas bent on disrupting the elections. They not only see increasingly sophisticated ambushes while on patrol but now also face a deadly threat to bases where they eat and sleep.

Ansar al-Islam taunted the Americans on its Web site: "First they said it was a mortar or rockets, then they said it was a suicide operation with local materials," the group said.

"Are they really this stupid that they still don't know how they've been hit, or was it too painful to admit?"

Key Aide to Annan Retires Abruptly Amid U.N. Scandal
BY BENNY AVNI - Special to the Sun
December 23, 2004
http://www.nysun.com/article/6697

UNITED NATIONS - One of the biggest power players at the United Nations abruptly announced his retirement yesterday in what may signal the beginning of a Turtle Bay shake-up, just one day after Secretary-General Annan said that the scandals and attacks from outsiders had "cast a shadow" on the institution.

In an announcement that surprised even the U.N. spokesman, Fred Eckhard, who made it at a regular press briefing after a note was passed to him from upstairs, Mr. Annan said that he accepted a request from his chief of staff, Iqbal Riza, to retire "with very mixed emotions." His retirement will take effect on January 15, Mr. Annan said in the statement.

Many diplomats at the United Nations said yesterday they believe the departure of Mr. Riza was the result of American pressure on Mr. Annan, who recently visited Washington in an attempt to mend fences with the Bush administration.

Relations were harmed after Mr. Annan's famous pronouncements on the Iraq war, which he called "illegal," and his advice, on the eve of the presidential election, against an attack on Fallujah. Many in Washington are also incensed about a host of scandals at the organization, which receives 22% of its operating budget from America.

Mr. Riza, 70, who has been chief of staff since January 1997, is considered the most influential policy adviser to the secretary-general, and many feel he was a leader in a policy that is perceived as adversarial to Washington, especially on issues related to Iraq and Israel. A U.N. insider said Mr. Riza leads a group of advisers who have called on Mr. Annan to take a hard line, urging him to refuse to share information with the congressional oil-for-food investigations. Some diplomats even went so far as to say that there was pressure on Mr. Annan regarding his top staff at the meetings last week with Secretary of State Powell and his presumed replacement, Condoleezza Rice.

"I totally deny that," a deputy American ambassador, Anne Patterson, told The New York Sun yesterday. She said she called Mr. Riza on an unrelated matter earlier yesterday and conveyed surprise at the retirement announcement, adding that Washington had not pressured Mr. Annan on any staff issues.

Diplomats familiar with America's relationship with the U.N. were skeptical. "By allowing Riza to retire/resign, Annan is removing his closest associate, and this you can say is viewed by many observers as a positive development," said one such diplomat who asked not to be identified. "They felt that Riza was part of the problem."

While Mr. Riza's name was scarcely mentioned in the oil-for-food scandal, U.N. sources told the Sun that recently the 38th floor, where top U.N. brass is located, was "swept" by investigators under Paul Volcker, who is conducting the U.N-sanctioned investigation into the scandal. Computer hard drives and files were taken for examination. After resigning, one source pointed out, Mr. Riza would not be subject to interviews by Mr. Volcker's team. But he hastened to add that he does not know whether Mr. Riza was a suspect or even if he had already been interviewed.

"Three reasons," Mr. Riza himself said when asked by the Sun yesterday to explain his resignation, "It is spelled A-G-E." Sources close to him said Mr. Riza has wanted to retire for a long time and felt that at his advanced age, the end of the year was a good time.

But according to U.N. sources, Mr. Riza is not alone in what even the most pro-U.N. diplomats admit might become a general trend of "cleaning of the stables" in the higher echelons of Mr. Annan's administration.

The U.N. controller, Jean Pierre Halbwachs of Mauritius, is said by top U.N. officials to have announced his desire to resign soon as well.

Even more ominous, according to a U.N. diplomat, the undersecretary-general at the head of the department of management, Catherine Bertini, intends to leave in March. Ms. Bertini is the highest-ranking American in Mr. Annan's inner circle, and she is said to be "fed up."

In addition, Mr. Annan would soon have to fill key posts such as his special representative to the Middle East, which will be vacated next week when Terje Roed-Larsen ends his stint there, as well as the head of the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, which deals with Palestinian Arab refugees. According to two sources, Peter Hansen, who currently heads the agency, is going to be pushed out when his current term ends in March.

Mr. Riza, a Pakistani national who is a veteran of the U.N. and diplomacy, is the most powerful of all these names. He has been at Mr. Annan's side through thick and thin, including in what is considered the secretary-general's most glaring failure, the Rwanda genocide in 1994.

The old-line Pakistani diplomat was said by his associates to be mild-mannered and cool under pressure. His style, said one U.N. insider, is a bit "roundabout." Unlike Americans, who believe that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, Mr. Riza always zigs and zags, he said.

Israeli diplomats, though, have been up in arms about Mr. Riza for some time, saying he represented the Islamic-Arab hard line in Mr. Annan's close circles. "In those moments that the secretariat needed to show a balanced and fair approach, Riza's influence was unhelpful," Israel's ambassador, Dan Gillerman, told the Sun.

Mr. Riza was rumored for a long time to be on his way out, but the abruptness and the timing of yesterday's announcement, on a slow news day on the eve of the holidays - with most beat reporters out on vacation - raised suspicions.

"Annan is not resigning, why should Riza?" said one high U.N. official who asked for anonymity. Only on Tuesday night, he added, Mr. Riza and other top officials attended a holiday party on the 38th floor. The official said that he had no inkling that Mr. Riza was going to be out of office the next day.

Neither did most U.N. diplomats, including ambassadors on the Security Council. "I heard it just now," Ambassador Andrey Denisov of Russia said. "It is a surprise to me," Chilean Ambassador Heraldo Munoz said. Algerian Ambassador Abdallah Baali said that he had known for a long time that Mr. Riza intended to leave, but even he said the timing was a surprise to many of his colleagues.

Mr. Riza has raised the ire of the U.N. staff union recently at a meeting in the aftermath of allegations against the head of the U.N.'s internal investigative arm. Some said that the chief of staff had worked to squash the investigation into allegations of abuse of power. When the union voted for a resolution that expressed no confidence in Mr. Annan's senior management, many privately said this was directed at Mr. Riza.

Earlier, Mr. Riza, who was Mr. Annan's lieutenant at the peacekeeping department under Secretary-General Boutros Ghali, ignored cable messages from a U.N. commander in Africa, Lieutenant General Romeo Dallaire of Canada, rather than passing them along to higher-ups in the organization and to the Security Council. General Dallaire had repeatedly warned that mass murder was being planned in Rwanda. "Mistakes were made," Mr. Riza admitted later. "They were misinterpretations of the information that was available, and we have to learn from that and we have to move ahead."

"Today we salute you Mr. John Kerry voter. While others were at the polls making informed decisions about their candidates, you are relying on Michael Moore for political advice. Yes. No. Maybe. The only thing we know for sure about Kerry is his three Purple Hearts. [say it again now] Sure George W. isn't the most articulate public speaker, but he's not scared of a football.

Liberal Chattering Class Unhinged [19 Nov 2004|08:55am]

November 19, 2004
David Limbaugh
DavidLimbaugh.com
The liberal chattering class has literally gone off its collective rocker. Little negative has occurred since the election -- cabinet shakeups are routine and traditional, and our guys routed the bad guys in Fallujah -- but the way the Left is carrying on you'd think President Bush had issued a string of corrupt pardons, or something.

I wouldn't think Democrat angst could get much worse. Democrats have acted
like victims of robbery the last four years, but now they're acting like women scorned, rejected by a dueling banjo-wielding electorate. I guess I suspected they'd take their losses badly, but I didn't realize they'd unshackle all gentlemanly restraints on their septic bitterness.

During the campaign they conjured up all these imaginary misdeeds that President Bush and Vice President Cheney had engaged in, from their fantasies that they lied about Iraqi WMD to the distribution of favors to Halliburton to augment VP Cheney's blind-trusted pocketbook. Each of their fraudulent claims was too preposterous to be taken seriously by any but the gullible class, many of whom were taken in by sheer repetition.

You would think that they would have run out of ammunition by now. Don't
they ever take a breath? How about just faking cordiality for some minimal
honeymoon period? In their unyielding malice and hatred have we finally
discovered a perpetual motion machine?

Pentagon Agrees Not to Sponsor Boy [16 Nov 2004|08:33am]

conservative67
[ mood | angry ]

Associated Press
Tuesday, November 16, 2004
CHICAGO — The Pentagon has agreed to warn military bases worldwide not to directly sponsor Boy Scout troops, partially resolving claims that the government has engaged in religious discrimination by supporting a group that requires members to believe in God.

The settlement announced Monday is part of a series of legal challenges in recent years over how closely the government should be aligned with the Boy Scouts of America (search), a venerable organization that boasts a membership of more than 3.2 million members.

Civil liberties advocates have set their sights on the organization's policies because the group bans openly gay scout leaders and compels members to swear an oath of duty to God. The American Civil Liberties Union (search) believes that direct government sponsorship of such a program amounts to discrimination.
