Too much to do in this season to blog seriously. Also my continuing international conversations with the Dane I call Frans command some of my time. (They take the form of “Comments” to my essay entitled: “Challenge From Social-Democrat Denmark.”)
The Norwegian Nobel Committee is continuing its pathetic descent into irrelevancy. It just awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union, N. S. ! The awarding of the prize to Barack Obama for what he was going to do was just one stop on the way to oblivion.
I guess the EU deserves the prize because not even two of the 27 members have begun eviscerating each other at all for years. Way to go Europe! The prize also acts as a sort of resurrection for a dying dream.
The fall began when the Nobel Peace Prize Committee awarded the prize to the arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat. Want the prize? Murder many people and then, just stop.
Speaking of Arafat, notice the big silence following the exhumation of his body? An international team of forensic specialists is looking for signs of his having been poisoned. Big, big silence.
I think I know what killed him. Here are some hints: Why would you send your revered national leader to die in a foreign country? Why France? What are the French good for? What can they be counted on for? (Obviously, I don’t mean food!) Why a military hospital for an obviously dying man? What does military discipline add to the advantage gained by sending him to die in France?
No poison will be found.
