Tuesdays with Paulie's Pals

Sometimes a political pundit has to relinquish their pages to make room for other notable works. Today's edition of Paulies Point features a couple of writers that are dear to my heart as well as my intellect.


Mumbai: A Message for America
By Abraham H. Miller

Americans have been assured that the horror and terror that exploded across television screens from Mumbai in late November will not affect our own sense of security. Such assurances are as disingenuous as they are comforting. The murders carried out against Western tourists in India's most technologically sophisticated city have far-reaching implications for Americans, not just for those of us traveling abroad, but for all of us getting up everyday and going about life's routines.

Those who have prescribed this analgesic of comfort have focused on where this event took place. Far and away more important are the terrorists' strategies and tactics.

The attacks were carried out almost simultaneously on multiple targets. Airing during the Thanksgiving holiday, the attacks were designed to draw major media attention in America. The targeting and execution showed sophistication, extensive planning, and precision training. The terrorists had a low probability of evading authorities and a high probability of getting killed.

Tortured
By Jeff Morton

Well, its over! The practitioners of the peaceful religion of Islam are dead with one in captivity. The people of Mumbai, India are attempting to move forward with investigations, accusation while at the same time experiencing, distraught, outrage, pain and fear. The victims, tortured (especially the Israelis) destroyed, and once again senselessly taken from their families, from all of us; they are us!

The new administration in America will most likely down play the word, "Tortured" The incident was a cowardly act done by a few radical extremist. My friend, Paul Miller speaks to this point rather well.

For those of us who are yet, still alive, here is what we all should come to understand about Islam. For 30 years the entire globe is being tortured by this "Religion of peace." For centuries, the religion of peace has enslaved, brutally oppressed and killed thousands in every nation that is took by force...which includes all of them! Globally, we sit and pick out those who are planning, YES, planning to kill someone else and refer to them, after the deed as radical.

Dan Rather, Katie Couric and the Soldier
From Israelinsider

Dan Rather, Katie Couric, and an Israeli soldier were captured by terrorists in Iraq. The leader of the terrorists told them that he would grant them each one last request before they were beheaded.

Dan Rather said, “Well, I’m a Texan, so I’d like one last bowlful of hot spicy chili.” The leader nodded to an underling who left and returned with the chili. Rather ate it all and said, “Now I can die content.”

Katie Couric said, “I’m a reporter to the end. I want to take out my tape recorder and describe the scene here and what’s about to happen. Maybe someday someone will hear it and know that I was on the job till the end.” The terror leader directed an aide to hand over the tape recorder and Couric dictated some comments. She then said, “Now I can die happy.”

The leader turned and said, “And now, Mr. Israeli tough guy, what is your final wish?” “Kick me in the ass,” said the soldier. “What?” asked the leader? “Will you mock us in your last hour?” “No, I’m not kidding. I want you to kick me in the ass,” insisted the Israeli.

So the leader shoved him into the open and kicked him in the ass. The soldier went sprawling, but rolled to his knees, pulled a 9mm pistol from under his flak jacket, and shot the leader dead. In the resulting confusion, he jumped to his knapsack, pulled out his carbine and sprayed the terrorists with gunfire. In a flash, all terrorists were either dead or fleeing for their lives.

As the soldier was untying Rather and Couric, they asked him, “Why didn’t you just shoot them in the beginning? Why did you ask them to kick you in the ass first?”

“What?” replied the Israeli, “and have you two assholes report that I was the aggressor?!
