2008: Year of the Moonbat?

South Australian Premier Mike Rann has called for David Hicks to apologize for his Taliban training and terrorist sympathies. In response, here are some words of wisdom from a commenter at abc.net

Hicks never trained with al-Qaeda, there was no al-Qaeda until 9/11.The term al-Qaeda was thought up by the CIA, who has subsequently admitted doing so. The falsehood was started in January 2001 by Jamal al Fadl, a Sudanese who had been with Bin Laden in the early 1990s. Jamal al Fadl stole money from Bin Laden, and then sought protection in the USA. The FBI and CIA paid him hundreds of thousands of dollars to create the al-Qaeda fiction. In fact, al Fadl invented the name al-Qaeda.Osama Bin Laden never used the term al-Qaeda until after 9/11, when he realized that al-Qaeda was the term the Americans had invented for him.

This is all about oil, a consortium represented by George W Bush’s father met with the Taliban to discuss the construction of a pipeline through Afghanistan to convey oil from Azerbaijan to a port in Pakistan, where it was to be tankered directly to the US. This consortium’s proposal was rejected by the Taliban, who gave the rights to the pipeline to Brazil. Thus the Taliban became the world’s enemy #1 according to the US.

If the Taliban had agreed to Bush snr’s proposal Hicks would have been a friend of the US, not an enemy. The invasion of Afghanistan and later Iraq would never have happened, and life as we know it would not have changed in any way.

New Years Day

So, now we’ve all recovered from any hangovers (or in my case, colds) that we’ve all experienced, how did you spend New Years Day? (Click on the pictures for larger versions)

I spent mine here:

Beach 1

And here:

Beach 2

And saw this delightful little fellow, whom Tizona seems convinced is a drop bear. It’s actually a baby brush tail possum. As I recall, he was a rather thirsty little guy. It was 40C out there (hold on a sec, our US friends, I’ll find it! 104F), and I poured the poor little guy a bit of fresh water. He lapped it up, and looked rather greedily at the bottle I was holding, as if he knew that if he looked sufficiently cute, he’d get more of it.


And just to placate Tizona, see if you can spot the hoop snakes in this picture:


The Morning After…..Good Morning, Fools…:)

This bright enough for you poor bastards that are hungover? You know, dry mouth, teeth itch, stomach kinda’ screwed, maybe even spent some of the early morning hours, in the crapper.

Well take heart. Whilst I didn’t have but a few Southern Comforts, I know, as you should, that WE will feel better over the course of the day.

Those that didn’t participate in some or any kind of festivities, are feeling as good right now, as they are going to. Poor damn people…..:)

Ummm, I or someone can, WE will post when our eyes can focus a tad better, cause right now, every damn thing I see, varies in color.

It is quite possible you may not be able to read this at all. Should this persist longer then half the day, do have someone dial up an eye Doc for you tomorrow. Elsewise live with it until all is clear. You did it, now deal with it!

OH and hopefully you weren’t damn stupid enough to drive last evening or in the early morning hours to get anyone killed, including yourself….BUT if you did, you couldn’t read this any damn way. And if that be true,

I hope they toss the friggin’ book at you!
