Comment on the Belmont Club:
"Shaken and Stirred"


Dubai has eclipsed Monaco as "a sunny place for shady people." Getting your guests killed has got to be bad for business, unless it is your business. Welcome to Murdersville.

Marie Claude,
we weren’t interested in Chechenian nor in Russian “inner” businesses
We have tried that attitude before.

How horrible, fantastic, incredible it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas-masks here because of a quarrel in a far away country between people of whom we know nothing
- Neville Chamberlain
How did that work out for France?

herb,
Allah is a poor deity that needs to use people to defend him
That is because Allah is not a true diety, in the same category as YHWH or Buddah or Bramah or Zeus or Odin etc. were for healthy members of their respective societies. Allah remains the frozen projection of the dementia of Muhammad. It is so structured that adherents have to enter into his pathologies of theft, violence, child abuse and deceit.

If you accept the least charitable explanation of the origin of Judaism, with Abraham having a psychotic episode similar to Muhammad's, there is nothing in the structure of the religion or the authority given to the example of any individual that forces a person into accepting immoral or destructive behavior.

wretchard,
It’s the audacity that bewitches them
Now that the people have been suckered into buying even The Audacity of Hope and discovered that upon examination it is box of Chicago rubbish and broken truncheons they may become less predictable. People hate to have their fantasies destroyed. It makes them cranky.
