New York Daily News - Ideas & Opinions - Richard Cohen: UN outrage in wrong place: "The use of dopey kids as suicide bombers is clearly abhorrent. It is child abuse combined with murder. Yet the UN says nothing. It would not even mention terrorism in its proposed condemnation of Israel for the murder of Yassin. The one-sidedness of that resolution was the stated reason the U.S. vetoed it. You would think from reading the resolution that Israel had taken out some sweet Muslim clergyman, a veritable Islamic Gandhi, and not a leader of a terrorist organization that has killed almost 400 Israelis and wounded countless others in the past 3-1/2 years.

Of course. The fundamental premise of the UN is that all nations are the same and there is no moral differences between the, that they are all equally good and equally bad. Anytime that premise in personal relationship or in national relationship is accepted, it becomes impossible to make moral decisions and the worst of people are given license to loot the rest.

See my parable at "A Wolf Is a Wolf"

When the wolf lies down with the lamb in this world, it is not a happy day for the lamb. The UN has to go. The wolves are salivating.

Women flat do not belong in combat. The wisdom of the nations over thousands of years of history should not be set aside for the social views of some ivory tower theorists who know nothing about war, the stress on humans, or the difference between the sexes. Men at war cannot be expected to behave with the suave urbanity and polite decorum of Boston society after seeing their comrades blown to smithereens, living in fear that around the next corner is a bomb hidden in the street that will blow them to smithereens. Civilization is just a veneer very often upon the depravity of man in the best of circumstances, and when that veneer is stripped away in the chaos of warfare, death, and terror little of the feminist logic will remain.

Reuters reports that "There have been 129 cases of sexual assault reported to the independent Miles Foundation in the current theater of operations -- Iraq (news - web sites), Kuwait, Afghanistan (news - web sites) and Bahrain -- but only 27 were reported to military officials, according to foundation chief Christine Hansen."

There have probably been much more than that, and it is a great tribute to the self-discipline and character of the American soldier that there have only been that many. It is unnatural and evil. Real men do not send girls to war. Women belong in the military, for they have a long and honorable history. In combat, no.

Monday, March 29, 2004 "Clarke is nothing more than a shameless self-promoter with a partisan agenda, acting in association with Rand Beers, a top advisor to presumptive Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. Moreover, Clarke's current criticisms of President Bush clearly contradict his prior statements from an August 2002 press briefing and private testimony before the 9/11 Commission. John Lehman, a member of the 9/11 Commission, succinctly sized-up Clarke when he advised him, 'You've got a real credibility problem'."
You betchum, Red Rider. Oops, Red Rider is not politically correct, is it?
