Not-So-Happy Anniversary

Today is the 34th anniversary of the US Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision, legalizing abortion in the United States.

Since that ruling, more than 40,000,000 unborn American children have been killed, in the name of what the National Organization of Women calls "choice".

American women can now procure abortions in the 7th month, in the name of what liberals call "progress".

On this day, let's reflect on the atrocity of abortion. Contemplate for a moment the horror of partial birth abortion. Consider the fact that a developing baby's heart begins to beat in the 4th - 6th week of development. Mothers don't learn that they're pregnant until at least the 3rd weak. So how many beating hearts have been stopped in the name of Roe v. Wade?

Finally, reflect on these images:

If you haven't come to realize that something is very wrong with our culture, that turns a blind eye towards the ongoing carnage inflicted by the abortion industry, awake from your slumber.

White Men Need Not Apply

Ahh, the wonderful "diversity" career fair. Why don't they just come out and accurately describe these events: "We are looking for employees. White men need not apply."

2 Years in Prison + Hanging = Sufficient Suffering?

According to an Op Ed piece from a Kurdish writer, the recent execution of Saddam Hussein deprived Kurds of an opportunity to put Hussein on trial for crimes against Kurdish citizens of Iraq. The article provides an interesting perspective on the trial, and the plight of Kurds in Iraq. More importantly, the writer makes a great case for the argument that Hussein was tried for the wrong crime.

In Hussein's most notorious and brutal mass murder, thousands of Kurds were killed in a 1988 chemical weapons attack. Innocent women and children suffered agonizing deaths at the hands of Saddam Hussein and "Chemical" Ali. For whatever reason, Hussein was never tried for these crimes, but rather for another mass murder in which nearly 200 Arabs were killed in retaliation for a failed assassination attempt.

There's no doubt that Saddam Hussein should have been tried for the chemical weapons attack on Kurdish civilians. But to the average Kurd seeking justice, do the actual criminal charges really matter?

His army was defeated in a matter of days, he hid like a coward in a spider hole for months, he was convicted by a judge in the new Iraqi government, and was put to death by a band of Shiites. Seriously, how much more could you humiliate and punish a Sunni dictator? Perhaps the Kurds would have preferred Hussein was also beaten with the dirty shoes of a Jewish woman as he entered the execution chamber?

Here is the story - be advised that some disturbing photos are included.
