Double Standards

First the MSM tell us, Abu's death won't mean anything, small fry, the killing will continue, best to leave now, should never have gone, too many mistakes, stupid Americans. Now Abu's successor is given the front page, top story, gee I thought Abu was just a raving lunatic, nothing special.
Al-Qaeda in Iraq has named a successor to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, days after he was killed in a US air strike. Abu Hamza al-Muhajir is "knowledgeable" and has a history of fighting a holy war, said an internet message on a site used by Islamic militants.
I heard on the news today the analysts and experts were expecting another jihadist to carry the sword after Zarqawi. I guess he must have got cold feet after seeing what happened to the previous parasite. Who can blame him, faced with the same bleak future.
In Washington, President George W Bush said Mujahir would be "on our list to bring to justice", during talks on Iraq with military and diplomatic planners.
So Muhajir, take note, the predators will be looking for you, Iraqis that you are supposedly liberating will be yearning to betray you and coalition forces will be looking forward to scraping bits of you off their boot heels.

And in other good news.
Afghan and US-led forces have killed up to 37 suspected Taleban fighters in central and southern areas since Sunday, a top Afghan general has said.

Gen Rahmatullah Raufi, the Afghan army commander in the south, said a relative of fugitive Taleban leader Mullah Omar may also have been killed.
Meanwhile over in 'Progressive' Iran, as Clinton lectured us.
Police in Iran have beaten a small group of women activists trying to hold a protest for greater legal rights in the biggest square of the capital. Several people were arrested by the security forces who moved in almost as soon as activists started gathering.

About 20 women sat on the grass in Haft-e Tir Square in central Teheran and began to sing a feminist song. They were calling for equal divorce and custody rights and a ban on polygamy.

The BBC's Frances Harrison in Tehran says the police who massively outnumbered the protestors, almost immediately started beating the women to disperse them. The viciousness of the police attack caused men who were passing by in the street to protest, our correspondent says.
I remember watching a video of some leftwing protestors over in the US, obviously squealing at the US Government and that horrid Bushitler, some were carrying 'Hands off Iran' placards.
I wonder if the squealing in protest will be of the same pitch now, over the treatment of these protestors in Iran, as it was over flushed Korans in Gitmo and aggression toward innocent Venezuela and beloved Cuba.

I wonder if any feminists and liberals will be marching in our streets or burning materials outside Iranian consulates around the world, with the same righteous indignation and fervour as when America dared to liberate Iraq and Afghanistan and free women there.
