The War To End All Wars

Labels: ,

The one thing you can count on from the 'huggers is their penchant for hysterics. Since the imminent demise of Mother Earth hasn't brought the majority of rational thinking people to their side, they need to pump up the volume. Now according to Australian "climate change" whackjob Tim Flannery, we're heading toward war over global climate change.

IF the world fails to reach agreement on tackling climate change soon then it could end in war, climate scientist Tim Flannery has warned.

Like many others, he is concerned at a lack of progress ahead of a crucial UN climate summit in Copenhagen in December.

If there is no deal some time in the next year then there is a risk of momentum fading and the problem getting beyond the reach of world leaders, said Prof Flannery, who is in New York for climate talks.

"My greatest fear is that once people stop negotiating, once diplomacy fails, that's potentially a prelude for war."

That could mean conflict over carbon tariffs, over the mass migration of climate-affected people or over serious water shortages, Prof Flannery said.

It might not happen for decades but it was a real threat if Copenhagen failed. "The triggers are there for conflict," the former Australian of the year said.

I'm anxious to see what they're going to threaten the world with next...maybe one of those "if we can't take care of the planet, aliens from outer space will invade and take it away from us because we don't deserve it" movie plots or something.

Of course, this is the same guy who advocates pumping sulphur gas into the atmosphere to combat global warming.

Since the 1990's we've been receiving dire warnings of impending doom due to global warming/climate change...we're fast approaching 20 years on the subject. All I want to know is when some of it is going to start coming true? When can we start dismissing this b.s. out of common sense? I mean, those of us who haven't already been doing that for the past 20 years...

Thus Ever To Hippies

Why on Earth would someone think they could get away with taking down & burning a VFW flag...especially one that had been flown in Iraq? The method of justice enacted (and that's exactly what it was) will make you smile.

VFW Flag Burner Pilloried

VALLEY FALLS -- The young man was given three choices: get turned over to the police, go one-on-one in a fight with a seasoned war veteran, or be duct-taped to a flagpole for six hours with a sign around his neck identifying his alleged crime: flag burning.

It was the third option that would still have the small town buzzing a week after a 21-year-old was hunted down and forced to endure a public humiliation with its roots dating to the Middle Ages. Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1938 were incensed enough to tie up the man last Sunday after they accused him of setting the flag in front of their building on fire.

Post Commander Nick Normile, a Vietnam War veteran, said the man came into the post's bar Sept. 18 on Poplar Avenue and was eventually turned away for not having a proper ID.

Apparently angered, the young man, who Normile did not want to name, cut the rope of the American flag flying overhead and used a cigarette lighter to set it on fire, Normile and others said.

The man sat pilloried as the village had its fall youth soccer picnic with a long parade of children passing in front of him.

"He'll never disrespect the flag again, I can tell you that," Normile said.

Normile said the flag had at one point flown over U.S. troops in Iraq had special significance.

Veterans, both local and nationwide, responded to the event as accountings were posted online to the official VFW Facebook page and national Web site. Comments posted supported the act and added ideas for further punishment.

Other nearby business owners said they knew of the event but refused to give an accounting. Unconfirmed reports by citizens said the alleged flag-burner was a relative of a previous commander of the post.

Calls made to the alleged flag burner and a spokesman for the national VFW organization for comments were not returned. The Rensselaer County Sheriffs office confirmed knowledge of the event, but said they were not involved. State Police in Brunswick were contacted, but a trooper said no record of the event could be found.

The flag will be disposed of at a formal ceremony, Normile said.

Before the defenders of hippydom rally around this dumbass and defend his "First Amendment rights", please note that he cut down the VFW's flag and burned it, not his own. If he'd brought his own flag and burned it on the VFW's property, he'd only be guilty of complete lunacy and not vandalism, which is why the threat was made to call the police.

What were the guy's motives in burning the flag? Was he making a protest, just plain pissed off, ? No one knows at this point...but it's not surprising that when given a choice between an arrest, a sound thrashing or public humiliation, a coward will take the third one every time.
