Oh, those goofy Arabs

It’s so nice that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is releasing those 15 British sailors and marines, but do we have to be treated to the theater he’s built up around it? For example, according to Fox News he lectured the British on sending a mother to his peninsula;

“How can you justify seeing a mother away from her home, her children? Why don’t they respect family values in the West?” he asked of the British government.

It’s much better to stone your women to death, beat them and cut off parts of their anatomy. Now that’s family values.

Across the plains, Nancy Pelosi was meeting with Bassar Assad, who promised peace in our time;

“We were very pleased with the assurances we received from the president that he was ready to resume the peace process. He’s ready to engage in negotiations for peace with Israel,” Pelosi said.

She said the delegation conveyed to Assad “the importance of Syria’s role with Hamas in promoting peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis.”

She did not reveal how Assad responded to the delegation’s message on Hamas and Hezbollah. Syria hosts the exiled leadership of Hamas, as well as other Palestinian radical groups, and is a major patron of Hezbollah.

I’m sure she didn’t reveal the reaction because 1) she didn’t dare mention Hamas or Hezbollah for fear of pissing off her allies in the region; or 2) Assad told her to shut up and she quickly complied.

But while the United States regards Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups, Syria insists that Hamas is a legitimate resistance movement working for Palestinian freedom and Hezbollah is a regular Lebanese political party.

I’m sure Pelosi agreed with Ashad that Hezbollah is just a political party and influenced Ashad to ship some of their spare missiles to Howard Dean so the Democrats could model themselves after Hezbollah.

Syria has praised Pelosi for defying the White House. The state-run Syria Times called her a “brave lady” and Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem was quoted as saying Pelosi and other members of Congress were “welcome” in Syria.

There ya go – when a State-sponsor of terrorism praises your member of Congress, stand proud. I say we send a whole butt-load of them over there.

Of course not to be outdone by Pelosi cavorting with a bunch of Ay-rabs, Fox news Channel reports that the House Armed Services Committee sent a “style guide” out for the Pentagon so they don’t confuse the linguine-spined Democrats who have to talk to hard-ass warrior-types;

 “When referencing military operations throughout the world, please be as specific as possible. Please avoid using colloquialisms such as, ‘the war on terrorism, or the ‘Long War’ Please do not use the term ‘global war on terrorism,’ ” according to the memo.

[Republican John] Boehner accused Democrats of launching an “absurd effort to deny the fact that America is battling terrorism on a global scale,” according to a statement released Wednesday by his office.

So gutless PC-speak has infiltrated the Congressional hearings. See the style guide in .pdf. Boehner sums it up nicely;

“It’s no wonder Democrats don’t like the phrases ‘global War on Terror,’ they have completely failed to take the threat of global terrorism seriously,” Boehner said.

Or anything else for that matter.
