Around the World Wide Web 16

1. Norway scrambles fighter jets as Russian bombers get too close to the border. I have a few questions: If Russia attacks some European country, does America have to get involved? Must we save France's ass the next time they surrender?

2. Looks good for outsiders?

3. Albert Ellis dies at 93. When I was stationed at Ft. Meade in 1979 I spent an afternoon at the Library of Congress looking through books on Objectivism and Ayn Rand that I did not have; there were only three or four as I recall. One of the books was by Albert Ellis. It was garbage.

4. WTF? If Iran is infiltrating mosques in Dearborn and the FBI hesitated moving for one minute because of civil rights concerns or fears of offending the tender sensibilities of Moslems, it is an outrage. (Not to mention the more important question: Why does the regime of the Mullahs in Tehran still exist? They've been at war with us since 1979. What do they have to do to get us to fight back?)

5. Robert Novak settles scores in Prince of Darkness. David Frum responds in three remarkable posts that 1) put the Wilson-Plame affair in perspective; 2) give us a look at how even journalists can be Machiavellian in Washington, D.C.; and 3) make Robert Novak look bad.

6. Terrorist dry run using cheese? And I like this sentence:

The report states that “individuals involved in these incidents were of varying gender.”

Does "varying gender" mean they were male one moment and female the next?

2. Thanks for the link! :)

4. You ask why the Mullahs are still in charge in Iran, yet you oppose the Iraq War? I assume you are NOT suggesting we actually attack Iran.

I've wanted us to attack Iran since before we invaded Iraq, even before 9/11.
