Why They Hate Us, Part 26
by Lee

My mom just called me from Australia with an interesting little anecdote.  She works in a little gift shop, selling cards and knicknacks.  A woman came in today with two small kids.  Mom said she looked to be about thirty.  One of her kids, who was about five or six, was asking her something to do with bombs.  “Oh, honey,” the woman replied, “bombs are very bad.” Mom couldn’t hear exactly what the boy asked next, but it had something to do with atom bombs.  She could, however, clearly hear the mother’s response.  “So America could show how big and powerful they are.”

Being an Australian-born naturalized American citizen who was married to an American for 36 years, Mom wanted to say something but had to bite her tongue because she was at work.  But if you ever wondered why there are people around the world who hate America, you have to look no further than this dunce mother.  If someone who lives in a western democratic capitalist society like Australia, a country with a long history of being allied with the United States in every major conflict we’ve engaged in since WWII, assumes this kind of pig-ignorant stance towards us and indoctrinates her pre-schoolers with anti-American invective, then it’s pretty fucking easy to see why ignorant Islamists will fly planes into buildings and blow themselves up, isn’t it?

Going All the Way
by Lee

If you’re gonna be a bear, be a grizzly.

A MELBOURNE schoolteacher who had a sexual threesome with two underage female students before photographing them giving each other oral sex was sentenced yesterday to seven years’ jail.

Peter Donald Carne, an English and drama teacher at a state secondary school in Melbourne’s southeast, was sentenced to seven years, with a minimum of five years, after pleading guilty to 10 charges, including sexual penetration of two girls, aged 15 and 16, and transmitting child pornography.

Carne, a 45-year-old father of three, sat stony-faced as County Court judge Carolyn Douglas delivered the sentence.

Judge Douglas said the conduct of Carne - who as Year 10 co-ordinator was responsible for counselling the 16-year-old on behavioural issues - had undermined the public’s confidence in the teaching profession and betrayed the trust of his teaching colleagues.

An earlier court appearance heard that in mid-2002, after several months of weekly meetings with the 16-year-old, Carne told her he had “personal feelings” for her and wanted to spend more time with her.

The girl initially had been “taken aback” by his offer, but later consented to a sexual relationship, saying she was “excited by the idea”.

Having established a continuing sexual relationship with the girl, Carne suggested her 15-year-old best friend, also a student at the school, join them for a threesome.

The court yesterday heard that Carne picked up the girls in his car near one of their homes in December 2002 and took them to his home, where he kissed the 16-year-old before the second girl joined in.

He had sex with both girls, but later denied knowing the 15-year-old was a virgin.

Over the next six months, the trio engaged in regular sex sessions.

Carne recorded the sessions, which included the two girls giving each other oral sex, on his webcam.

Most pedo teachers find that one special kid to bang.  Not this guy.  You’ve almost got to admire his balls.  And if we had a copy of his webcam video, we could.

Being Prepared
by Lee

Australian troops are trained to prepare for what they might expect if they are captured by an enemy.

Australian soldiers are stripped naked, hooded, deprived of sleep and threatened with physical and sexual abuse, methods banned under the Geneva Convention, to train them to resist interrogation if captured by hostile forces.

Defence Minister Robert Hill told parliament in a written statement that Australia had been conducting the training for the past five years.

Hill said no soldier was actually abused and that soldiers who would be conducting interrogations of prisoners were not permitted to undergo the training.

Interrogation methods not permitted under the Geneva Convention were used to “lower morale and weaken the will to resist”, Hill said in the statement.

“A participant may be naked during advance practical training to allow a search of clothing and to weaken the will of the individual to resist interrogation,” Hill said.

Of course, the kind of whining left-wing dick who has nothing but contempt for the military had nothing but bad things to say about the plan.

“The government simply shouldn’t be subjecting anybody to this type of treatment, whether it’s part of a training programme,” said Cameron Murphy, president of the New South Wales (state) Council for Civil Liberties.

“These people are people who ultimately may have to look after prisoners of war and this is not the example that should be set. It’s not a fair enough argument to say that they should be trained by being tortured,” Murphy told reporters.

Considering that no member of the New South Wales Council for Civil Liberties stands any chance of being captured, tortured, and possibly beheaded by an Islamofascist thug, I don’t really think their opinion should matter all that much.

I remember when I was in navy boot camp.  As part of our CBR (chemical, biological, and radiological) training they had us weraring gas masks, put us in a room full of tear gas, and had us take the masks off.  Now, I am sure that putting a prisoner in a room full of tear gas to coerce him into talking is a violation of the Geneva Conventions, should I have complained?

A Grand Old Flag
by Lee

There are certain members in any western democracy who take particular delight in hating the society that provides for them, all the while continuing to live in it and taking advantage of what it offers.  You see it all the time here in America.  Here’s an example from Australia.

Every morning like clockwork, 72-year-old war veteran Ian Garwood proudly raised his Australian flag outside his Launceston home.

The Australian flag appears on some of the most prominent building in Australia, but this Tassie resident may have a fight on his hands because one neighbour has been put off by his patriotism.

Our national flag may not be flying above this war veteran’s home for much longer.

“To say I’m irate is putting it mildly, I’m absolutely furious,” said Mr Garwood.

“I’ve served under that flag and I’ll fight for the death for the right to fly it.”

The local council contacted Ian and said that it had received a complaint about his flag.

The issue was that the flag pole was put up without a council permit and the flag fluttered, according to the council.

Since the issue was raised, Ian said he has received a lot of support from residents in his street.

“It’s not doing any harm to anybody,” he said.

“I can’t see how it doesn’t fit in with the street and the sentiment of the street which is very community minded.”

The council has ordered Ian to take down his $50 flagpole while the anonymous complaint was investigated.

He also had to apply for a permit and if he does not, Ian could be fined $50,000 or even sent to jail.

“I wish there were more people flying the Australian flag,” he said. [Emphasis added]

That’s right, my friends.  Some dickhead is so offended by the sight of a flag being flown by an old WWII Aussie Digger that the city council is threatening to fine him $50,000 a year or throw him in jail.  Charming, no?  This is the inherent danger of turning over most of your private sovereignty to city councils or other local government.

Killing Aussies
by Lee

If only the Aussies hadn’t followed that eeeeeeeeeeeeevil fascist Bush, then this never would have happened.

Two Australian Defence Force personnel were injured in a car bomb explosion outside Canberra’s embassy in Baghdad yesterday, an attack Australian officials said appeared to have been directed at the defence force barracks next door.

The bombing took place at 7.05am Baghdad time and is believed to have killed three Iraqi passers-by and injured seven others who were outside the embassy, which is located in a fortified compound.

It was just one of four car bombs which exploded in the city yesterday, killing at least 26 people and wounding 21, the US military said.

A group led by the al-Qaeda ally Abu Musab al-Zarqawi later said it had carried out suicide bomb attacks, according to claims on the internet.

Statements on the internet from al-Qaeda Organisation for Holy War in Iraq said members of the group’s “martyrdom squadrons’’ struck the locations.

So much for the Minutemen and Revolutionaries who are simply fighting for the right to self-determination,

Australia: Fuck Yeah
by Lee

As a dual citizen Australian American, I really liked hearing these words from outgoing US Ambassador to Australia Tom Schieffer.

“America gets a lot of advice around the world and a lot of times that advice comes down to, ‘we’ll hold your coat while you go and do it’,” he said.

“We get advice in Australia but the advice always comes with the realisation that the Australians are prepared to take off their coats and go with us.”

Exactly, I’ve said it a million times before, and I’ll say it again.  There are about ten countries in the world that really matter.  Everyone else is funtionally worthless.  Only the countries, of which Australia is one, which are prepared to get their hands dirty keeping the world from imploding in on itself are worthuy of our respect and/or largesse.
