Beckham and Timberlake on the Al-Qaeda hit list

Well, got work next week at a camp. This week, staying fit, getting bored, and surfing the net - trying to understand the world and separate truth from falsehood, as is in my nature. There's a lot of misinformation out there... being realyed thanks to journos with less common sense than street sweepers.

You could write a book on the errors and lies spouted by Saint Al gore while he jets around in his private jet instead of commercial airlines like the rest of us peasants. A 6 m rise in sea leavels by the end of the century!! my ass. Even the politicised IPCC says the worst case scenario is a 59 cm rise.

Been reading "Vinod's blog" and found this (must be George Bush’s fault again):

David Beckham and Justin Timberlake are the targets of an alleged Al-Qaeda murder plot.

A chilling internet video, which has been posted on YouTube, brands Becks, 32, and JT, 26, as criminal influences on young Muslims.

Fellow footballers Wayne Rooney and Thierry Henry, as well as rapper P Diddy, are also mentioned.

The warning footage was posted by a Glasgow-based website named after Al-Qaeda that encourages attacks on Westerners.

as Vinod says, this illustrates quite well that it’s the free way we choose to live that really annoys the radical islamics, rather than any piece of foreign policy.

Envy and shame are powerful things and every broadcast of a Space Shuttle launch, every computer that boots up with a Microsoft logo and every can of Coca-Cola is a small reminder of where their society stacks up against ours. Britney Spears terrifies them but in a weird, oblique way, most Americans just can't understand and few of them can truly verbalize. Just about the only thing that could placate them would be if the US was as much of a failure as Syria and/or under their political / social control.
