  • What’s With Drudge?

    Posted by Jonathan on February 22nd, 2004 (All posts by )

    This morning he’s got a headline about the death of the president’s dog but nothing about a Jerusalem terror bombing that killed and wounded many people. Is Drudge taking the day off or are terror attacks in Israel so common as no longer to be news?

      I hate it and find it despicable when they call terrorists “militants” “rebels” “guerillas” and such euphemisms. It bugs the s*** out of me.

      Call them what they are – terrorist scum.

      I like Russia’s Putin – “There’s nothing sacred to the scum responsible for this crime”

      UK’s Guardian – “President Vladimir Putin blamed the blast on “terrorist scum” – meaning Chechen rebel guerrillas”

      I also like this nice touch after the Moscow Nordost hostage rescue – they buried the dead terrorists wrapped in pig skin and pig manure at an undisclosed location.

      I love Russians.

      that was just childish. maybe next time the russian policemen should eat the dead chechen’s hearts?

      Childish? If it deters future terror attacks it’s a good idea. Whether it really is an effective deterrent is another question, but at least the Russians don’t handicap themselves with PC bullshit.

      well, sometimes even childish ideas seem to work, but then they’re still childish. imo it’s not a question of political correctness.

      There is some reason behind it. Muslims believe if they are buried wrapped in pig skin, they won’t see Allah and receive the 70 virgins after they blow themselves up. Since they place such a high value on why they blow themselves up, the deterence factor is there.

      Russians have been dealing with bad people for a long time. They tend to not beat around the bush. For example, back in World War 2 if they caught a really nasty Nazi in the dead of winter, say an SS, they would douse him with cold water and throw him outside.
