Slap Shots for Febraury 13, 2006

Calling a traitor a traitor

Former Vice President Al Gore is clearing showing that he is either losing his already tenuous grasp on reality or that he is a traitor. Speaking in Saudi Arabia recently, at an event in part funded by the Bin Laden family, the bitter loser of the 2000 Presidential race :

claimed that the US government has committed "terrible abuses" against Arabs after the Sept. 11, 2001

Arabs had been "indiscriminately rounded up" and held in "unforgivable" conditions

"The thoughtless way in which visas are now handled, that is a mistake,"

Obviously, the first two are lies and designed to flame hatred of the US government amongst Saudis. As for the visas, 15 of the 19 murderers responsible for the 9/11 attacks came into this country using Saudi visas.

Gore is entitled to his opinion and is free to speak his mind. But for a former Vice President of this country to make such statements on foreign soil is unforgivable, especially during a time of war. It is the action of one who has lost their mind, who is pandering for Arab money, is a traitor or any combination of the former.

It is long past time for this loser to shut up and go away.

An equal opportunity idiot

Showing that he is capable of making an ass of himself anywhere, former VP Gore made news in the Philippines this time for his factually inaccurate statements about global warming and his "analysis of local environmental conditions" which were way off of the mark.

Isn't it time that former VPs and Presidents quit embarrassing the rest of us with their statements made on foreign soil? Gore, Carter and Clinton have all done their best to discredit the US in the eyes of the rest of the world. Is it because they are petty, bitter losers or could it be for what they most desire in life: a return to power?

Isn't it ironic?

Islam has generally been thought of as a religion of peace, or so we are led to believe. Yet, Muslims have resorted to death and destruction to protest the publication of what some consider to be offensive cartoons. Not all Muslims, mind you. American Muslims have not found it necessary to burn, pillage and kill.

It is ironic that so followers of what is supposed to be a religion of peace find it necessary to resort to violence to express their unhappiness. It is truly sad that the actions of a small group of radicals are what forms the basis of how the rest of the world looks upon their religion.

No government or military force will ever completely eliminate the violence of the radicals. Only when he rest of the Muslim world rises up against the radicals in their midst will we see an end to the violence.
