Highly Trained, Impeccably Nuanced Travellin' Maritime Diplomats Arrive For Negotiations With Iran
— Ace

This essay by Pat Dollard (excerpted at LGF) gives me a bit of hope that smart, tough negotiations and strong, smart diplomacy may yet have a chance.

Thanks to Mike.


Shock: Eurorg Rates US Near The Bottom of "Most Peaceful Nations:" says we're just barely ahead of Russia and Iran (and Iraq!) in terms of peacefulness.

And barely ahead even of the Jews.

The Jews, for crying out loud. The ones who "start all the wars."

I'm starting my own organization to rate nations in terms of "Complete and Total Faggiosity." I'll be sending my results to AP mucho pronto, which is the new official American way to say "rapido."

1 I love the smell of Trident missiles in the Straits in the morning...smells like victory.

2 Life. Liberty. And the pursuit of all who appose it.

4 This is what I am talking about!

Nothing smoothes negotiations with tyrants like a couple of Cruise missiles aimed squarely at their gaping assholes.

You sure do talk about "faggots" a lot. What's up with that?

Not that there's anything wrong with it...

10 we're less peaceful than Russia, and just ahead of Iran in peacieness. 
Behind even the Jews.


Huh?  That doesn't seem to be what the article says:

According to the Global Peace Index, created by The
Economist Intelligence Unit, Norway is the most peaceful nation
in the world and Iraq is the least, just after Russia, Israel
and Sudan.


I think they're saying that the Joos are the #3 most warlike country, the Russkies are #2, and our Iraqi puppets are #1.

We're only ranked #25.  WTF?  We've got to step it up, people.  Maybe we can go after Iran to pump up our ranking.

faggiosity?


I thought it was faggitry.

12 Saying the US is not peaceful is like saying guns kill people. Both may be true. But both statements definitely ignore all the peace that having the US or a gun around brings.

Taiwan is peaceful because the US says so. Western Europe was kept peaceful for 50 years under the threat of a Soviet Empire bent on expansion because of the US. Et fucking cetera.

And my apartment is safe due to Misters Smith, Wesson and Winchester. Thanks guys.

thank you, as usual, I am wrong.

I'm not... a details kind of cat.

Wait...are you trying to suggest that talking about homosexuality makes someone SECRETLY GAY?

That's the most awesomely original argument we've ever heard.*

One thing that jumped out at me is that every one of those ships is flying their "Battle Ensign"


 


From Wikipedia


 


A battle ensign is the name given to a large war flag which is flown on a warship's mast just before going into battle.

19 What's up with the weird sound on that clip?  I was expecting John Williams's "Imperial March."  In fact, I started humming it as I watched the video.

This may give some indications about what all that gray metal is for.

Those idiots, such as dave, come into every comment thread with the sole purpose of derailing the comments. And it works every time. You clods have been falling for this idiot's tricks for the last 4 days. If you're going to engage the piece of shit troll, don't dance with it.


Destroy it!


You're better and smarter than that fecal matter, dave. Stop embarrassing yourselves and start acting the AoS troll killers that I know you can be.

21 Depending on their basis I can see why the US would rank low on the "peacability" scale for some. We fight back. We go face evil and deal with it instead of playing merchant's games and trying to avoid conflict by payoffs and promises. While Europe, for example, can avoid battles by having the US fight them instead, the US has no such luxury.

22 No more negotiations with Foggy Bottom, Mr. Ahamdkhaishdflajad.  Its sea bottom now.

It's like a cat with a mouse, you want to play with it for awhile. Sure, sometimes they get away and hide behind the refrigerator but that's just part of the game.

Just when France is showing signs of growing a pair?  This could get confusing.

Say, I'm technically a vampire killer, but I've been out of work for quite some time and wouldn't mind paying some bills resharpening my skills.

Trimegistus,


Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of the first movement of Gustave Holst's Opus 32...

28 So how do we rank compared to the Dutch?

29 Or the Icelandic, for that matter.

Dave:


 


I noticed over at thinkprogress on the link mentioning Drudge's slam on the Pied Piper of Retardation, Keith Olbermann, that the "nuanced and tolerant" left was making fun of Drudge and his lifestyle. So is it a case that the "tolerant" set can get away with mocking someone, so long as they are a Conservative or Republican? A simple yes or no will suffice. No attempts to "answer" by bringing up a non sequitor.

32 The study was done by a bunch of icebacks who conveniently only count the last 5 years, you know, because if we included say, the entire middle ages, the snowcones wouldn't look so cool anymore - Vikings invasions all over the place along with the usual raping and killing of children.

You seem to be trying to make that sound like a bad thing.

How will that help?  Even with Andy Sullivan and Greenwald(s) we'll still rank towards the bottom...

Posted by: richard mcenroe at May 31, 2007 04:53 AM (lCheg)

37 One cannot meaningfully measure "peacefulness" in a vacuum. The US  has prevented countless wars from breaking out and prevented millions from dying in the process. The Left is so utterly devoid of ANY useful ideas or meaningful commentary that it is truly sad.

38 Anyone else want to negotiate?

So we're nearly last on the "pussy nation" list. 


And they say that's bad thing?
