This is low even for Jihadi Taleban scum.
I can understand why the soldiers laughed and joked afterwards. They had just survived a truly horrific ordeal in which they thought a comrade had been blown to bits and then discover he was OK (well as OK as anyone who has just been deafened and showered [...]

Apparently homeopathic remedies don’t have side effects.
I can’t wait for their groundbreaking paper on the religious affiliation of a certain elderly man who lives in Rome.
Well, I know one thing: When Jesus brought a little girl on her deathbed back to life, He said, "Wake up," not "Move over…"

My intersposed comments on this article from The Times shall look like this:
Compulsory sex and relationships lessons for 11-year-old children are to include classroom discussions on gay unions and civil partnerships. Secondary pupils will learn about contraception and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), while primary school children will learn about their bodies and friendships, a review [...]
I haven’t done a soldiers with big guns posting for AGES, and I guess it is about time I rectified this.
So, in celebration of the brave soldiers of the IDF, here are further admirable warriors:

Those who have been with us from the beginning may remember my posting on the disgraceful treatment of Irene Sendler by the Fake Nobel committee and the fat git of a Salesman.
Seems she has had some recognition, this month, even if that worthless dick did steal her Nobel Prize. Look, this story deserves the complete [...]
Dear Mr Turner,
I am writing to you on the matter of the dismissal of Lisa Ashton.
I understand that in order to carry on business it is necessary to observe the laws and cultural mores of the countries where you operate. That sometimes these laws are unfortunate does not preclude obeying them.
However, in the case of [...]
OK, a while back Jonathan Pearce of Samizdata posted a very strange video of the trailer for a Japanese (who else?) CGI movie called CatShitOne which was basically Watership Down meets Blackhawk Down. Now, if such a distinguished blogger as Mr Pearce who tends to write erudite pieces on politics, economics and similar can post [...]
You just can’t win some battles can you? 60 odd years ago in Birmingham they were setting up the Castle Bromwich “shadow factory” to build Spitfires to kill deranged racist loons who were hell-bent on killing Jews because they weren’t “white” (however that is defined). And now this happens…
Some battles get won and stay won [...]

I believe he said he bought it in Bucharest
Well, yes. The ex communist countries do show a remarkable tendency towards sanity. When the EU lets them.
Gimme a guess, wadda ya think? How long before this is banned as hate speech towards psychopathic mass murderers and child killers?
Right. The country is so deep in the hole that Cambridge and Imperial are having to invent new orders of magnitude to describe it…
Fuck it. I’m off to have a wank and after seeing this you might be too…
The underwear perplexes me. Women’s “intimates” always do. I’d love my wife to wear such stuff [...]
A thought experiment…
You run a small but growing business. As it is still quite small and you personally do the hiring and firing. You decide you need one more employee so you advertise and only two CVs make the final cut. So you interview both.
The first is well dressed black American who has the [...]
