    Great article on Chechen \"Rebels\"

    This guy is great, there are not many no bullsh*t journalists out there:

    "The murder of innocents in a Russian school may have been secondarily the result of a panic or a bungle by Vladimir Putin's "special forces," but nobody is claiming that the real responsibility lies anywhere but on the shoulders of the Muslim fanatics."

    "As for the slaughter of the Nepalese workers in Iraq … you simply have to see the video and hear the Quranic incantations in the voice-over. (I use the words "murder" and "slaughter" by the way, and shall continue to do so, as I hope you will, too. How the New York Times can employ the term "execution" for these atrocities is beyond me.)"

    This is good:

    "Often unspoken in commentary on attacks on America and Americans—and even worse, half-spoken—has been the veiled assumption that such things have a rough justice to them. The United States, with its globalizing blah-blah and its cowboy blah-blah, supposedly invites such wake-up calls."

    I just can't stand the media calling these people "rebels" and "insurgents" or the worst: "freedom fighters". They are fu*king murderous scumbags and it's refreshing to see someone in the mainstream media actually have the balls to say it.

    I like foxnews.com coverage of car bombers and the like...they call them "homicide bombers", not suicide bombers.

    Great article!!

    I like the part about the french. The comments by france's new foreign minister show that at least one frenchman gets it.

    yeah, that whole "freedom fighter" thing makes me wanna puke. Michael Moore called the terrorists in Iraq "the minute men"... yeah, ok. Revolutionary Americans were the types of people who called upper level Englishmen "sir" and certainly never attacked civilians, kids or any other heinous poop. They fought a just war for independance against the English and did so in the most proper way possible. Comparing these a-hole pieces of crap in iraq who cut off peoples heads, take hostages, set up road side bombs and kill indescriminantly to REAL freedom fighters is a travesty.

    Just from seeing how Michael Moore acts, you know he was one of those kids in school that everyone hated. Got picked on all the time (when he wasn't being completely ignored), always smelled "funny", and Friday nights for him consisted of a bottle of Jergans and a WELL used porn mag. He was the one everyone else thought was "wierd". Now all the Morons of the World think he's the greatest ever. People are stupid.
