Schweigen in Osnabrück

Der Osnabrücker Politikwissenschaftler Mohssen Massarrat warf ein, der Iran werde „dämonisiert“, damit es ein Argument für einen Krieg gegen ihn gebe. Das führte zu dem unschönen Höhe- oder vielleicht auch Tiefpunkt der Diskussion. „Gut, dass Sie hier sind“, hielt Broder dem Professor vor, „ich wollte Ihnen schon immer mal sagen, dass Sie eine Dreckschleuder sind.“ Ein kurzes, erschrockenes Schweigen im Saal war die Reaktion.

Nach der Klimahysterie: Rette sich wer kann

In March 2007 Angela Merkel, the German chancellor and chairman of the summit, was a green champion. Today she sounds like a lobbyist for German business, listing the industries that must be shielded from the full costs of her package. In truth, almost every country has found reasons why the climate-change promises may be impossible to meet in their current form. Britain is gloomy about its renewable-energy targets. Ireland says its farmers must be protected (grass-fed Irish cows emit a lot of methane). Dig into most “impossible” problems on the table, and they come down to money.

Lord Howell: After the credit crunch comes the energy crunch

Britain is now in real danger of running out of power in the period immediately ahead, thanks to incoherent national energy policy, misplaced green zealotry, dithering for years over nuclear power (for which no amount of eleventh hour enthusiasm can compensate) and a huge thirst for imported gas which can only be met, if at all, at painfully high prices. Britain is now being once again described as the sick man of Europe, with the highest gas and electricity prices, the heaviest extra taxes and charges, the weakest gas storage facilities, a prospect of the most inadequate power generating infrastructure and the worst fuel poverty. Little wonder that scepticism about the climate change ‘crisis’ is growing, as critical immediate needs seem to be ignored or met merely with hand-wringing....

Victor Davis Hanson: America’s Nervous Breakdown - and the World’s

The natural order of the world is chaos, not calm. Like it or not, for over a half-century the United States alone restrained nuclear bullies, kept the sea lanes free from outlaws and corralled rogue nations. America alone could provide that deterrence because we produced a fourth of the world’s goods and services, and became the richest country in the history of civilization. But the bill for years of massive borrowing for oil, for imported consumer goods and for speculation has now has finally come due on Wall Street—and for the rest of us as well. Should that heart of American financial power in New York falter—or even appear to falter—then eventually the sinews of the American military will likewise slacken. And then things could get ugly—real fast.

Dickfellige Dünnhäuter

„Ich bin nicht dick“, sagt Obelix, der Gallier, und verweist auf seine unvorteilhaften Beinkleider. Ein ähnliches Dribbling um die Wahrheit hat nun der Fußball-Bundesliga-Aufsteiger TSG Hoffenheim gestartet - und ist an seinem Gegner hängen geblieben. „Ich möchte überhaupt nicht den Eindruck entstehen lassen, dass wir unter Umständen dünnhäutig wären“, schrieb der Pressesprecher des Vereins, Markus Sieger, an den Chefredakteur des Berliner Tagesspiegels, Lorenz Maroldt. Später folgte der Satz: „Ich gehe von Ihrem Verständnis aus, dass zukünftige Anfragen des Tagesspiegel bei uns nicht mehr berücksichtigt werden.“ Hier die ganze Geschichte.

Islam ist Frieden (und Liebe zu Kindern)

Al-Qaeda has over the past two years used 24 children to carry out suicide bombings in Iraq, the director of military operations for the Interior Ministry, Abdelaziz Mohammed Jasim, told pan-Arab daily al-Sharq al-Awsat. “Of the 24 children, five had a mental disability. From analysing the others’ remains, we established that they were homeless,” said Jasim. http://www.adnkronos.com/AKI/English/Security/?id=3.0.2527067244
