The stunning ineptitude of Arab ‘strategy’ was on full display in early June of 1967. The Egyptian Air Force was effectively destroyed by Israel on the first day of the ‘Six Day War’. Syria and Jordan, inflamed by Egypt’s (Nasser’s) empty bluster, also attacked Israel, only to watch their own Air Forces evaporate before their eyes under Israel’s far better marshalled airpower. Jordan sued for peace in just 3 days – else face total destruction. The UN forced a truce after 6 days of hostilities between the remaining belligerents.
Israel was victorious on the ground as well, occupying Syria’s Golan Heights, the ‘West Bank’ the Gaza ‘strip’ and Egypt’s Sinai peninsula. The Arab dream of pushing Israel ‘into the sea’ had come to naught, as this doc well describes. Such is War…]]>
Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko has shown activity in the form of jets for many months now, but the latest image reveals that the large-scale jets seen in previous images can now be resolved into many smaller jets emerging from the surface, which seem to merge together further away from the comet nucleus. Although much activity still emanates from the ‘neck’ region, jets are also appearing from both of the comet’s two lobes.
The big drama with this mission peaked with the Philae lander’s rough but technically successful landing on the comet a couple of months back, but the Rosetta orbiter continues to accompany the comet as it gets closer to the sun and the pictures just keep getting better. There’s still a remote possibility the lander could wake up again as well. This, along with the New Horizons mission to Pluto is going to make this another great year in space research.]]>
Just when I was starting to think the guy might be a little bit OK by recognizing the evils of first capitalism and now global warming, he comes out and says if someone says something you find offensive you you have right to deck him. Oh and don’t wear a condom when you fuck cause every sperm is sacred. Fuck the pope.]]>
This is the Atheist Republic. We are not afraid to call ourselves what we are. We are atheists and proud of it. We will not apologize for what we do and don’t believe. We will not rename ourselves in order to hide from hatred, and we will not stay isolated out of the fear of being demonized when united. We can’t stay silent while witnessing cruelty and injustice because we are not just atheists — we are atheists who care. Atheist Republic provides valuable news, resources and a medium for atheists to freely express themselves in a variety of ways, including discussion forums, blogs and image macros of thought-provoking, funny or inspirational quotes.
