Four "Swedes" and one "Dane" have been arrested by Swedish and Danish police because they planned to stage a Mumbai-style attack against the Jyllands-Posten building in Copenhagen, with the intention of storming in and machinegunning down as many people as possible.

"...Danish and Swedish police said the group, which they had been observing for months, planned a shooting spree in the building where the Jyllands-Posten newspaper has its Copenhagen newsdesk. The Danish intelligence service said it seized a submachine gun, a silencer and ammunition.

Jakob Scharf, head of the Danish Security and Intelligence Service Scharf, described some of the suspects as "militant Islamists with relations to international terror networks." He said more arrests were possible.

Scharf said the assault was to have been carried out before this weekend, and could have been similar in strategy to the 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai, India, that left 166 people dead

The latest arrests brought renewed attention to simmering anger at the newspaper, which has been the target of several attacks and threats since publishing 12 cartoons of Muhammad in 2005.

The right-leaning daily, one of Denmark's largest, had asked Danish cartoonists to draw the prophet as a challenge to self-censorship after the author of a children's book on religion said its illustrator demanded anonymity because he feared retaliation for a picture of the prophet..."

In Paris, more and more ground is being yielded to aggressive 'moderate' muslims, the ones who 'peacefully' occupy entire quarters of the Parisian 18ème Arrondissement.

You try to park your car on the curb, you get fined by La Gendarmerie. But this scum takes possession of the streets WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION, intimidates the few remaining indigenous Frenchmen, blocks economic life and the free movement of passersby...

... and gets away with it.


Because La Gendarmerie is AFRAID.

Good luck with preserving Marianne, stupid, coward frogs.


P.S. hat tip our friends over at Gates of Vienna.

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.

For battling so bravely a kangaroo court in her native Austria, that seeks to destroy her for the mere reason of her using her right to freedom of expression.

Chidike Okeem.

For speaking out so eloquently against what he labels black intellectual serfdom.

Staff Sergeant Robert Miller.

For fighting for the liberty of the Afghan people (even though many, if not most, will ever appreciate his sacrifice), ultimately also for our liberty and for the safety of our societies against islamonazism. Showed unrivalled courage in the face of the enemy, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honour.

USMC Corporal Jonathan Porto.

Another one of the many who, just like Staff Sgt. Miller, gave his life in this war with islamic nazism WHICH WE DID NOT SEEK, NOR GAVE REASON TO. The pain his widowed wife is going through can be gauged in her latest entry:

"...I get it. Being friends with a widowed person is not always easy. Did I completely lose my mind? Yes. Did I lose part of myself? Yes. Was I not always the best person? Yes. But I can guarentee that I am trying my fucking best to deal with what I've been given. Having bad days, making what some may think are bad decisions, completely losing your mind - it's all part of this. I didn't just lose my husband, the love of my life, my soul mate. I lost part of myself with him. And with that, I lost the future we'd planned, everything we had hoped for and looked forward to. It's not just a person who isn't there anymore, it's my entire life that is different now, without any say from me. I didn't ask for this.When you lose the love of your life and the future you'd intended to have your entire world changes and nothing makes sense. You struggle to keep your head above water and you don't think straight. And that's why you need good friends there to guide you, to listen, to not pass judgement, to just be there even if it's in silence. Even if you can't think straight enough to remember to call them regularly, just fucking be there. Walking out, disappearing, being mean and perpetuating rumors are not the ways to be a good friend to a widowed person or a person going through any tragedy for that matter. The sad part is, it's the people who say things like "I will always be there for you" or "whatever you need" that are the first to close the door in your face. Maybe some people can't handle it, they can't take the sadness, they're afraid of what they would do in the same situation or they don't think they would handle it the way you did and don't like the way you choose to live. News flash - you have NO IDEA how you will handle it until you're walking in those shoes. And then how you do handle it, how you continue to live because it is the only choice you have will surprise even yourself..."

Please, save a prayer for Cpl. Porto, Staff Sgt. Miller, and their many comrades in arms who either gave the ultimate sacrifice or got maimed or wounded.

Filip Dewinter.

One of the most underappreciated Heroes of the West. A leading Vlaams Belang personality, though he is not its chairman, he is constantly in the spotlights and not because he seeks them, but because he is willing to stick out his neck for the preservation of western civilization. It is why he will be in Koeln to stand by his comrades of ProKoeln who face the prospect of a megamosque, it is why he receives the Oriana Fallaci Award in Italy for his tireless defense of Freedom of Speech, it is why he incessantly rallies his party members to oppose the construction of mosques throughout Flanders. Vilified for twenty-five years or more in our country, his energy and stamina remain unparallelled. The smear campaign, waged nationally AND internationally, has not missed its effect. Possibly never will he enjoy the credit that Geert Wilders has. He deserves it just as well, and in all likelihood realizes it will elude him forever. He does not care. He keeps on fighting. He and I may differ in our views regarding the continued existence of our country Belgium, but compared to the islamic onslaught that is engulfing our entire continent, I consider that but a minor issue.

Over the past few years, Dewinter has gained my utmost and unwavering respect.

There are many, many more heroes, but... I lack the time to make this a more inclusive post. Be aware of the times we live in, and read and watch something else than the regime press and TV - and you will get to know ALL the brave.

Get ready for a load of crap:

"A responsible partnership between the world's two largest nuclear powers that limits our nuclear arsenals while maintaining strategic stability is imperative to promoting global security."

The author of that nonsensical gibberish is US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, after the ratification by the US Senate, with a 71 to 26 vote, of the so-called New START Treaty on 23 December, 2010. New START, the third incarnation of the bilateral nuclear arms reduction efforts between the US and the Russian Federation had already been signed on 8 April 2010 between US President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev. Understandably, most if not all European newspapers swiftly hailed the US ratification on the 23rd. That barely a day later Russia's Federal Assembly effectively snubbed the Obama Administration by basically declaring "Not so fast, we have AAAAAALLLLL the time!!!", was a bummer of the first order, yet it received no comparable attention. So typical, yet again.

Under terms of the Treaty, the signatories will reduce the number of deployed strategic nuclear warheads to 1,550. They would also have to limit the number of both the deployed and non-deployed delivery systems - ICBM launchers, submarine-based BM launchers, and heavy bombers - to 800. These obligations should be met within seven years after entering into force, i.e. the date that the instruments of ratification enter into force.

The rush by the US Senate to ratify New Start is strange given the, at best, haphazard implementation of its predecessors by the Russian Federation.

As for START I, which entered into force in 1994, Russia's slow implementation can be excused for because of the collapse of the USSR, which came barely five months after the signing of the treaty on July 31, 1991.

The Russians showed no haste whatsoever however with regards to START II, which the US Senate ratified in 1996 but the Duma only four years later.

Then there was SORT, for Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty, signed between then presidents Vladimir Putin and George W. Bush on May 24, 2002 in Moscow. Under SORT, both parties agreed to limit their nuclear arsenal to between 1,700 and 2,200 operationally deployed nuclear warheads. The only party that did indeed dramatically reduce its arsenal was the United States, as this graph shows.

According to this FAS report, the US had, as of 2010, around 2,468 operational nuclear warheads - more than the 2,200 as defined by SORT, but significantly less than Russia's 4,650. And now that we are it, I invite the reader to check out this post by fellow blogger Redhunter, who was in times past a Minuteman III Launch Officer. In the post, he deals with the Obama Administration's unasked for public "confession" of the US's nuclear strength of 5,113 warheads in May of this year. As you can see, the number of 2,468 operational weapons above pretty well jibes with the realistic assessment that half of those 5,113 can be considered operational and "ready to use".


Now, if you ask me, would it really endanger US National Security if the US would go it alone on New Start and the Russian Federation's Duma would not even ratify it itself, I would answer NO - provided the US is led by a strong-willed government willing to stand up for itself and its allies. For even if the US had at its disposal only half of its current arsenal, the destructive capacity of it would still be enough to plunge the world into a nuclear holocaust - such is the madness the Nuclear Arms Race has brought the planet in.

The real problem is, once again, that we are witnessing here for the umpteenth time a US govenment that literally can't wait to signal to the world that it wants to lie low and not take up its historical role as the world's policeman any longer. It's an invitation to its enemies to be ever more aggressive. It's Munich in 1938, Dean Acheson in Korea in 1950, and the Brits in the Falklands in 1981 all over again, but with the potential for far more devastating results.

It's not only the fact that the Russian Federation under the Putin/Medvedev tandem can hardly be considered a functioning democracy anymore, and has in fact evolved towards a suspiciously hostile to the west country at that.

But there's also the fact that a country like North Korea, which has recently conducted two military actions with deadly results against its southern neighbor, has openly threatened to use nuclear weapons, of which it is believed it has about twelve, in an armed conflict with the south.

There's the fact that a lunatic like Ahmadinejad has vowed to do the same in a conflict with Israel.

There's the fact that his country, Iran, had as recently as December 19 vowed to deliver and man a medium-range missile base in Venezuela.

The world has become a much more dangerous place than it was in the late sixties and seventies, when the US and USSR agreed upon the SALT I and II accords. Back then, Mutually Assured Destruction provided sufficient guarantee that the world would not be cast in a nuclear winter - because even Russian communists could be trusted to be rational beings after all.

Right now, a nuclear destruction potential has been made available to madmen who don't give a jolt for the lives of millions, not even of their own.

In a geostrategical context like that, speaking not only softly but ALSO throwing away your big stick is the stupidest thing to do.
