HOT5 Daily 5/24/2009

1. "To preserve and continue civilization" All too true.

Representative Sample:Todays western world when faced with danger from the barbarians, does not head out there with guns drawn and blades gleaming in the sun to meet the barbarian. We are taught otherwise. We close our doors, we call someone, who will then call someone else to tell them that we are about to get invaded, violated and pillaged; they may call someone else if they are too busy

2. ""Mr. Libertarian" P.J. O'Rourke discusses what exactly constitutes Torture"  Excerpts & links to the full O'Rourke article.

Representative Sample:Mistreatment of al Qaeda members and their friends and hangers-on is something I number among my moral concerns. But it's number 1,000,000,001.

3. "Crush your enemies. Drive them before you. Hear the lamentation of their women." How Sri Lanka defeated the Tamil Tigers.

Representative Sample: Ignore the "international community".

4. "Friday Photo: Don't mess with Belarus" What the?? Who  came up with this activity?

Representative Sample: It's a graphic.

5. "More on Varyag + news from Brazil" For those who haven't noticed what China has been up to lately.

Representative Sample: the important part is that Jobim is going to China this fall to basically finalize a deal that will allow Chinese naval pilots to train from Sao Paulo.
