Rumbles From Europe

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

Via Michael Totten, I’m pointed to this article by Khidir Hamza, a nuclear scientist who worked on Saddam’s nuke program before he defected. I’ve seen him make several news appearances befroe reading this editorial, and he has always been adamant about the fact that 1) Saddam would never disarm (he sees his entire destiny bound […]

A Madonna Screed

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

When I read on Drudge that Madonna is planning a “shocking” “anti-war, anti-Bush” “commentary” of a video that will accompany the media blitz for her latest toilet paper roll of sonic idiocy to be digitized and sold for $16.99, I think of the most succinct summation of just what Madonna is, brought to us by […]

The recent capitualtions by Iraq (allowing U2 flyovers, granting limited access to some scientists, etc) of course are a tactic aimed at stalling the US longer, since they have the possibility of giving more rhetorical ammo to the inspection-hawks on the UNSC. Some might take this as bad news, but I don’t really see it […]

RWN’s Warbloggies

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

Well, John Hawkins has thoroughly dashed my hopes of becoming the proud owner of a warblogger award. For his First Annual Warblogger Awards, I begged him –begged him!– to create a category of “Best Weblog Called Mean Mr. Mustard Run By Russell Wardlow.” Otherwise, I figured that my chances were slim to Kate Moss. Hell, […]

In addition to this, there’s another reason why I remain relatively confident that no, Bush is not wobblifying, and yes, we’re still going in, and damn soon: “NATO Allies Trade Barbs Over Iraq .” The article reveals that the rhetorical kiddie gloves are off and there’s quite a bit of angry shouting going on across […]

Clinton you nitwit.   In an exclusive interview Thursday on CNN’s “Larry King Live,” the former president said he sees a good possibility that the international community will unite to force Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to disarm. “I still hope the United Nations can act together on this, and I still think there’s a chance […]

The Final Straw

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

That’s it, after this I want to never again hear a call for the US to work through the United Nations or any other ridiculously perverted international body. Ever. Put a fork in it, fellas, that goose is cooked. It is now impossible to turn a blind eye to the flagrant hypocrisy represented by the […]

So now France seems to be suggesting that they might be coming around to supporting a US invasion of Iraq.   The paper chooses to emphasise the fact that Mr de Villepin has publicly offered, for the first time, military support in the form of Mirage 4 planes and said that France did not rule […]

In the WaPo today (via the AP):   As for U.S. allies, most believe more weapons inspections are necessary before any resort to force in Iraq, although French Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin, speaking after Powell’s presentation of declassified intelligence, left open the use of force as an option. He also called for more inspections […]

The UNSC Reaction: A Rundown

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

The level of sheer willful blindness displayed in the Security Council makes me wonder if the corridors of the UN building are padded so as to alleviate any serious injury from constantly running into walls and tumbling down stairs, which seems as if it would have to be the inevitable result of the stance that […]
