Dawn of the Idols: Everything about the Newsweek scandal discgraces everybody. Newsweek looks idiotic for reporting the Guantanamo Koran swirlies. The Pentagon and Newsweek's Pentagon source look idiotic for their bureacratic referrals to paper and to bureacratic mandates: "a top Pentagon spokesman told the magazine that a review of the military's investigation concluded 'it was never meant to look into charges of Quran desecration;'" "the magazine's original source later said he could not be sure he read about the alleged Quran incident in the report Newsweek cited." Finally, the people rioting in Pakistan look idiotic for their gross idolatry. It used to be that "the West," aka Medieval Christianity, absurdly accused the Muslims of idolatry. Now these charming protestors in Pakistan are saying that the libel perpetrated by the "Song of Roland" is no libel at all! It does upset us when you attack our idols.

[P.S.] Get ready for an epic Christian v. Muslim capture the flag, with bibles, crosses and Korans instead of flags, and blood, suffering and death instead of tags. You flush the Koran down the toilet? We poop on your Bible! I fear this is a battle the West will lose, unless it can stop the Klannies from performing humiliating own goals like this.
