Assorted News

Got a few things I'd like to highlight today.

The first is an analysis of the Flight 93 memorial by blogger Alec Rawles of Error Theory. It's very detailed and while I could cite the spectre of the 23 enigma (i.e. the more you look for something the more you will find it- trust me, you'll see the number 23
everywhere) there seems to be much more than mere coincidence going on here. Most disturbing for me is the inclusion of 44 glass bricks- symbolising those who died. 40 passengers and 4 terrorists.

Next are a couple more examples of Islamic intolerance- why this isn't more of an issue for women's rights groups is beyond me; perhaps they're too busy focusing on what Democrats call "women's rights" i.e. abortion to notice the real thing. First of all Muslims
horse-whip Christian women students for dressing improperly at a university in Nigeria.

Second, a Pakistani woman seeking a divorce had her nose and lips hacked off by her brother in law for "offending a man's honour". According to the report, this is far from an isolated incident. Again, where are the women's rights activists on this?

There is some justice in the world. The abhorrent scumbag ultimately responsible for the murder of eight months pregnant Tali Hatuel and her four daughters (aged 11, 9, 7 and 2) has been killed in an airstrike by the Israelis. If ever a tactic needed proof of its effectiveness this is it.

Looks like the USMC might be moving into space- with the development of a rapid deployment from space "Hot Eagle". The vehicle will enable a squad of Marines to be put anywhere in Earth within a matter of hours. Can armoured suits be far behind? Starship Troopers (the book) here we come!
