    Refusing to allow Boeing to sell civilian passenger aircraft to Iran is disgusting. Iran has a higher than normal rate of passenger aircraft crashes all due to being under longtime sanctions, which restricted them from getting used parts and proper aircraft servicing.

    By demanding Boeing and Airbus not do business with Iran you consign more women and children to die in unnecessary crashes.

    The same people who want this – will claim Assad does gas attacks because he want to inhumanely hurt civilians.

  2. Yohan

    Funny how the US never goes after the Saudis even though that is where 95% of the world’s terrorism eminates from.

    You will never find a single US official who will admit this. They always claim Iran is the worlds sponsor of terror. A lie of course. Iran is the greatest sponsor of Israel’s geopolitical enemies, not of normal terrorism as we in the west know it.

  3. Infidel Tiger

    Don’t sell Iran passeneger planes, but sell the Wahhabis anything militarily they fucking want.

    Wake the fuck up. Washington is the most evil place on earth and they have got every single decision wrong for 70 years.

  4. Fisky

    I’m nowhere near as anti-Iran as some, but unfortunately Obama pandered far too generously too them, and there needs to be a correction. Ultimately the solution to both Saudi and Iran will have to involve bankrupting both regimes by getting oil prices way down low.

  5. Anne

    Iran became highly influential in the Middle East after the US put Saddam Hussein out of action.

    Yes. That was the point. WW3 must start in the Middle East.

    Both the Globalists and Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood, want Nuclear War and mass* devastation.

    Muslims get the return of the Mahdi and the Illuminati become Gods.

    *Armageddon. Billions dead.

  6. Geriatric Mayfly

    Any moment now, the Greens will be calling for Pine Gap and NW Cape to be dismantled (Again). Presumably, either one or the the other played some role in the missile barrage on Syria. The Greens don’t like sneaky guided missiles, especially US ones.

  7. Infidel Tiger

    Just remember, the aim of any destabilisation is massive human migration to the west.

    John Commenus,

    Saw Stevie Ray (supported by the Fabulous Thunderbirds) at the Perth Concert Hall years ago.

    Just brilliant, fantastic.

  9. jupes

    This establishes a number of things

    1. Trump is a tough bastard and messing with him is risky.
    2. Assad had better keep his word or will need to watch his arse.
    3. Trump is not under Putin’s thumb.
    4. Trump really doesn’t like seeing children killed and is hence a Good Bloke.
    5. The Chinese have been put on notice that messing with the US is a bad idea.

    6. Trump is not Obama.

  10. jupes

    Good match at the SCG.

    Go Collingwood. I hate Sydney.

  11. Infidel Tiger

    Any way, Don Rickles death is a far worse blow to western civilisation than some Arab xunts.

    Terrible day.

  12. Infidel Tiger

    Swans are pure evil and Collingwood can never threaten in September. Go Pies!

  13. Atoms for Peace

    Yohan..if only the Iranians used there aerospace acumen to build aeroplanes instead of nascent ICBMs.

  14. Anne

    Just remember, the aim of any destabilisation is massive human migration to the west.

    The point of the massive migration to the West is destabilisation of the West.

    Civil War helps with the population culling and justifies Government military power over citizens.

    It was going well but Trump’s election has really thrown a spanner into the works.

    Worst case scenario for Elites: Trump will create safe zones back home in the Middle East and Europe is freed from the scourge of Islamisation. A painful and bewildering death.

    The Globslists are in real trouble but fortunately for them Trump’s priority is Prosperity and Law & Order Stateside.

  15. DrBeauGan

    I liked Mark Latham’s comments on the home page.

    He’s intelligent but above all sane. This makes a nice change these days.

    I hope he contributes more on the Cat. I disagree with him on lots of things, but he’s old school labour, so can recognise and construct an argument. Modern lefties can’t.

  16. Harlequin Decline

    Collingwood pissing away their chances now the bastard Swans have a chance, 1 point the difference. Mayne has done SFA, Freo did the better out of the deal.

    Almost got your wish. All said and done prefer Sydney to lose but a shame to see it made Bucks happy.

  30. Infidel Tiger

    WASHINGTON — Thick with tension, the conversation this week between Stephen K. Bannon, the chief White House strategist, and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, had deteriorated to the point of breakdown.

    Finally, Mr. Bannon identified why they could not compromise, according to someone with knowledge of the conversation. “Here’s the reason there’s no middle ground,” Mr. Bannon growled. “You’re a Democrat.”

    Pretty easy to see why Trump has fallen hard.

  31. Infidel Tiger

    So after the battle of the coral sea an Australian turns around and says everything the yanks have done afterwards is wrong.
    Notice you didn’t say 80 years.

    Pretty much.

    Of course Australia is equally culpable if not more so. We of course betrayed the people of PNG as thanks for saving our arses.

  32. struth

    Pretty easy to see why Trump has fallen hard.

    hahahahahhahahahahahahahaaha

    What happened IT.?Trump has plucked your feathers from the moment he ran as a candidate.

    As soon as you can sense there may be some anti Trump milage to be made, you are at it.
    You are making Monty look relaxed.
    There is nothing to see here except for those too eager to call it against Trump, making fools of themselves too early on.
    Hatred blinding clear thinking.

  33. DrBeauGan

    On what sorts of things do you disagree with him, Beaugan?

    The merits of Whitlam for starters. He was the start of big government in Oz, and many of our problems stem from that.

    He favours social democracy, which means buggering up capitalism with good intentions but no understanding of how it works. All forms of socialism are based on the assumption that well intentioned fuckwits can improve things. The evidence is that they can’t.

    He’s a politician and hence a meddler. It’s instinctive and incurable. It’s a horrible weakness.

  34. Rabz

    At this point, Fatty T needs to stop being a nepotist.

    Jared and Ivanka need to be dispatched back to their previous day jerbs.

    Fired, as it were.

  35. Leigh Lowe

    Rabz … there is a paywalled article in the Tele saying that McCormack was on a “one strike” warning. Sounds like he was an out of control screaming fag and it spilled over into the workplace.
    I wondered if Grimshaw was sticking by him and not wanting to report it, or was so pissed off with him she wanted to go further than a straight bat statement.

  36. H B Bear

    WTF ? how can you loose on fixed interest ? Looking at the results in a table on the website fixed interest has lost 0.59% FYTD – again how the expletive deleted do you loose on money on a fixed interest investment ?

    Bond prices can move up and down – go and re-read Liars Poker as a refresher (mainly mortgages but the point is the same). Only thing that can’t go down is cash.

  37. H B Bear

    McCormack will get a pass because… how did they put it? … “he’s just a bit of a Peter Pan who doesn’t eant to grow old”.

    That must explain why Stephen Fry has his toyboy then. Or does he always want to be Tinkerbell?

  38. Rabz

    LL – I was way beyond taking any of those preposterous imbeciles seriously decades ago, which would have been about the time I stopped watching commercial FTA TV 4 evah.

    I’d never even heard of the latest savile to be exposed, as it were. As for your Tracey, we used to refer to her as “Disgracey Grimbore” back in the days when the ACA ads would intrude on the bloody cricket before we could hit the mute button.

  39. struth

    All Tracey has to do is be slim and read from an autoQ

    That’s it.
    She can’t even do that.

    Thanks, BeauGan.

    You should paste that on the Mark Latham thread. It’s good constructive criticism he may benefit from.

    In addition, some people do grow out of the youthful ‘caring, sharing, rescuing’ nonsense. He’s smart enought to be one of them. You might get a reply.

  43. Infidel Tiger

    Now we know why Steve O’Keeffee got such a smasive fine. Sounds like someone dropped the L word:

    It’s understood O’Keefe made several offensive comments, but it was a slur directed at a fellow Cricket NSW female cricketer that incensed many, especially as cricket has led the way in embracing and professionalising the women’s game.

    Once again we see the real aim of female sporting empowerment: emasculate and destroy all that males hold dear.

  44. DrBeauGan

    Anne, plenty of other people told him much the same. I like him and agree he’s smart. Whether he can outgrow all that conditioning remains to be seen. Few can.

  45. Top Ender

    When NOT having the Big C is not such a good thing:

    Cancer fraudster Belle Gibson has been ordered by the Federal Court to pay $30,000 towards the legal costs of Consumer Affairs Victoria.

    Justice Debbie Mortimer today further ordered Gibson be prohibited from making deceptive claims about her health in connection with health and wellbeing advice.

    Gibson deceived people by claiming she had healed herself of brain cancer, a claim Justice Mortimer previously found had been made to boost sales of her app.

    Justice Mortimer ordered Gibson not claim she had been diagnosed with brain cancer prior to May 2016, that she was given four months to live and/or that she had taken and then rejected conventional cancer treatments before healing herself naturally in connection with the development, promotion or sale of health and wellbeing advice.

    Gibson has 60 days to pay the costs.

    A judgment regarding pecuniary penalties against Gibson has yet to be handed down.

    Gibson was paid $75,000 for a 60 Minutes interview in which she admitted she did not have cancer or undergo conventional medical treatments, but said she had believed the diagnosis was real after a “doctor” came to her home.

    Gibson has been absent from court since the case began and has not defended herself through lawyers.

    A little story.

    Years ago, before trucks were speed limited, 60 minutes was tailing trucks going down the Hume, some going well in excess of 100kph, calling them up and letting them know on the CB radio that they were tailing the truck driver and their speedo said 120 kph.
    What is your excuse, they asked the truck driver?

    What’s yours? came the reply.
    It is not a recent thing that these self righteous arseholes have believed they are jury judge and executioner.
    A professional hypocrite would be the nicest thing you could say about McCormack.
    A leftist to the core.

    An odd thing in my Singapore hotel.

    A free android phone, yours to borrow from your room and do with it what you wish. Free local and international calls – the last to fixed lines only. Free Internet, and linked to towers so you get free Internet anywhere you go. Obviously useful with its GPS for navigating.

    Has an app fitted to wipe all your content when you finish – e.g: phone numbers you entered; pix you took and so on.

    Can’t see how the company concerned makes money out of it.

  49. Rabz

    BTW – liquidated most of the stock portfolio in the last week and here’s the washup. Pay atttention, kiddies, this is how you make some quick money in this socialist cesspit:

    Initial investment: $200,000 mortgage, negatively geared
    Fifteen stocks purchased in Dec 2015/Jan2016 (Total cost $199,970)
    Value of liquidated stocks on 30 March 2017: $233,000
    Stocks retained: Blobbiton $5,000, I go to Rio $5,000
    Total Value of Portfolio at mass liquidation date $243,000
    Value of mortgage at liquidation: $194,900
    Value of tax free dividends paid and neg gearing for 2016-17: $32,000
    Net profit from Dec 2015 to Mar 2017: $65,000 ($10,000 still held in two stocks)
    Net annual return: 27.8%

    Suck on that, commies! 🙂

    P.S. Buy low, sell above that, after 12 months. The stocks above were purchased at “a record low” in the market (Dec ’15, Jan ’16).

    I’m trying to make sense of this. Back in the day I did the Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Warfare course. The only treatment against sarin – “nerve” gas was atropine, injected into the larger muscles of the body, as soon as possible as the dreaded signs were detected. “SLUD -” If the gas used was sarin, all the running in circles, screaming and shouting is useless, and the only gas treated by soaking everyone with a fire-hose and oxygen masks, is chlorine….I’m happy to be corrected…

    Far-right group Soldiers of Odin targeted a Muslim school in a Stockholm suburb following reports the school had segregated its children by gender on the bus.
    The Al Azhar school in Vällingby told newspaper Stockholm Direkt that members of the anti-immigrant vigilante group had put up propaganda stickers in the schoolyard and filmed some of their pupils
    “”We have had a crisis meeting and police have been here to discuss the threat. They think it’s incitement of racial hatred but that there is no serious threat. So we’ll have to continue to pay for our own guards,” Lindquist told Stockholm Direkt.”
    “It is important to point out that the staff is not driven by religion but a passion to work with cultural and integration issues. It is also important that the school is not based on Muslim values but democratic ones,” he told the TT news wire on Tuesday.”
    “In August 2016 there were 66 religious free schools in Sweden, 11 of which were Muslim, according to the education ministry.

    https://www.thelocal.se/20170406/soldiers-of-odin-target-muslim-school-in-stockholm

    You really have to marvel at the sinister mindset of those who designed this kind of debacle for their nation. Like Jamie Foxx says in “The Kingdom” – “There’s some bad people out there”.

  84. ZK2A;

    The only treatment against sarin – “nerve” gas was atropine, injected into the larger muscles of the body, as soon as possible as the dreaded signs were detected.

    Correct.
    Sarin is an aerosolised liquid, dispersed in a hydrocarbon – usually diesel. Not a gas. (But you knew that, just a correction for others who think a gas mask will protect them.)
    I remember at the start of the first Gulf War, Atropine became difficult to get for hospitals. It was all going to military stockpiles.
    We use it for accelerating heart rate in cardiac infarction patients.

  85. Oh, I forgot to add – those needles in the injector are big. They hurt.
    They have to be to get through your cams, and most likely your NBC suit.

  86. Another bit to ZK2As NBC post – the nerve agent, say Sarin, is commonly mixed with other stuff to make you vomit so you take off your mask.
    You learn to vomit through your respirator and squeeze it through the seal.
