In the spirit of the weekend—what with Live8 and all—Mark Steyn celebrates Ulf Hjertstrom’s worthy cause:

I’d be happy to chip in to his get-the-bastards fund. It’ll do more good than most tsunami donations. The head-hackers have murdered dopey peaceniks and female aid workers and, of course, hundreds of Iraqi Muslims — and Ted Kennedy says, “Our military and the insurgents are fighting for the same thing: the hearts and minds of the people.” Detonating the hearts, minds, and organs over a shopping market seems an odd way of doing it.

Ulf’s attitude also wins praise from the Wall Street Journal: “If a conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged, what do you call a Swede who’s been kidnapped? Somebody you wouldn’t want to cross, that’s for sure.”

    1. I’d also suggest Ulf gets in touch with a guy called Boba Fett, who we now know is one tough Maori fulla.

    1. Ted Kennedy says, “Our military and the insurgents are fighting for the same thing: the hearts and minds of the people.”
      Ted Kennedy should know about using tragic events to further his own political ambitions.
      To him it is quite OK for the military to use death and mayhem as a political tool,for after all this is exactly what he would pesonally do if he could.

      Yes yes Ted, but … when we’re after hearts and minds, it’s in a metaphorical sense.

    1. Well, maybe Ted is looking for a liver donor.

    1. I think NRO is wrong to trawl for subscribers by printing come-ons instead of the whole column.  See Mark Steyn’s column above.  It’s annoying and has caused me to stop going to their sites almost completely.

    1. Piss off a Swede, they get cranky.  Remember Gus van Rosen in Biafra.

    1. Blerp: people need to make money. But yeah, I haven’t been going to their site as much since they’ve been doing that. Still, I don’t blame them. They have to pay their employees.

    1. Since it’s the only mention of Live 8 here, I thought I’d throw this in..

      They keep calling it a ‘rock concert’.  I wish they’d refer to it using a more appropriate description – ‘crock concert’.

      Given the level of hot air and general air-headedness exhibited by those that support it, it seems fair…

      Remember – Mugabe doesn’t need your money – he just needs UNDERSTANDING.

    1. When the next tsunami of aid money has been soaked into the accounts of the leaders and their cronies, what will be the solution to the problems of Africa?
      I am astonished at the naivety of Bono standing there and telling the crowd that they are going to change history. Aid money without political reform will be about as much use as Kyoto – draining the West’s resources to little effect.

    1. Bono’s stupidity surprises you?

      It’s Bono! This is par for course.

    1. Aging, he said “naivety” not “stupidity.” They aren’t necessarily the same thing. On the other hand, he’s forty-five years old, and by this time you’d think he’d have learned a thing or two.
