Karma Train Comes a Calling

Remember the two "Uselessness of Europe" threads we put up last week (post 1; post 2)? The German government released the killer of a US Navy diver after serving 19 years of a life sentence in spite of a standing treaty and official request for his extradition. Shortly thereafter, a German hostage in Iraq was released. Quid pro quo? You bet your ass it was. The terrorist was briefly held by the Lebanese government, but released after a few days as there is no standing treaty with Lebanon for extradition. The only darkly humorous part of this entire story is that the released hostage had converted to islam a few years ago when she married an arab and refused to stay in Germany after her release - she is in the process of returning to Iraq if she isn't there already. So she's right back where she began and Germany is upset she isn't more appreciative of their efforts.

The lesson learned? It pays to kidnap Germans because they'll negotiate, pay ransom and release terrorists, even for hostages that have left the country of their citizenship.

Headline yesterday: German Ex-Diplomat Kidnapped in Yemen (h/t Captain's Quarters)
  • A former German ambassador to Washington and four members of his family were reported missing and apparently kidnapped Wednesday while vacationing in a remote part of Yemen.
  • Chrobog, 65, served as Germany's deputy foreign minister until last month, when a new government came to power. In 2003, he played an instrumental role in winning the release of 14 European hostages -- nine of them Germans -- who had been kidnapped in the Sahara and held for six months by Islamic radicals.
  • he personally delivered a cash ransom worth several million dollars to intermediaries in Bamako, Mali, in exchange for the hostages' safe return.
Once the bandits, terrorists, and other assorted miscreants know that your governments will pay (and pay millions!) to get their citizens back, or will release prisoners upon demand (even those sentenced to life in prison!), you are going to see quite a few more kidnappings of Germans in the coming year. Useless Europe continues it's slide into irrelevance.

I have Teutonic blood running through my veins, and it shames me what those assholes in Germany have done. Maybe they're overwhelmed with guilt over the bullshit they pulled during Hitler's reign? I don't know.

Give in to terrorists, kidnappers and the like, you're only asking for trouble.

If I could say only one thing to whoever let that sonuvabitch loose, it would be "go fuck yourself!"

Happy New Year to everyone else

In Europe POLSKA! POLAND is the greatest country in the world. Most of the worlds greatest minds came from Poland. The germans stole Polish tech. We designed the first jet plane. Neil Armstrong was half-Polish and the first man on the moon. The atomic bomb was designed by Polish techs.

Whats up with all the coppers carrying knives? Are they gangbanger thugs? The dept. has a class on knife use on the job? Or are they possibly "drop weapons"? So what is it. Carrying concealed weapons not enough. Carrying knives is illegal in Chicago.

To see a significant representation of Polski-Pride, drive by the corners of 5632 W. Belmont (Major), and 5700 W. Belmont (Parkside) on any warm day. You'll see a contingent of piss-bum Polacks and you'll see why they haven't done anything significant since Madame Curie (she died after exposing herself to radiation). You can include Roman Polansky and Ted Kazynsky as proud Poles.
Even Fredrick Chopin moved to Paris to get away from the cultural malaise of his homeland.

How did you get all that done, while surrendering your great country at the drop of a pin? If your race are so top shelf why the stigma as a "dummy" nationality?? Go Irish! At least we can fight and hold our liquor, you Polkas need a vodka drinking class! I like polska people though they are usually very cool.

Well again another educated liberal idiot cant figure it out.

Lets say that you get into a car accident. Your seat belt is jammed and wont unlock. Your was smoking and now starts on fire.

However, I cant cut your seat belt to get you out because some yuppy liberal complained that Police Officers carry knives. So your sorry ass burns to death! TTMF! Not a great loss I say.

So, ya liberal yuppy goof, does this answer your question?

9:43 Learn the law before you open your yap, Fuckface. ILCS exempts police from the illegality of carrying almost any weapon upon their person. A knife has many uses for a police officer, since you are not one (or at least not a good one) you wouldn't realize this. To the "Hero"....why don't you go on Ebay and buy some of the GAP jeans that the heros of NYC looted on Sept.11 or some of the shit that "fell" into a fellow CFD heros boot while fighting a fire?

Cops carrying illegal weapons? Of course, but you forgot the blackjack and the sap gloves. The above, plus the knives they carry are the tools of thugs. The off-duty carry of guns is not enough for these cops. They need the likes of above for their drunken actions at the taverns. They know they can't shoot people in most actions so they use the sap or the jack to bust you up. P.S. they also want tasers to shock the shit out of you!

Whats up with all the coppers carrying knives? Are they gangbanger thugs? The dept. has a class on knife use on the job? Or are they possibly "drop weapons"? So what is it. Carrying concealed weapons not enough. Carrying knives is illegal in Chicago.

12/30/2005 09:43:31 AM

So, let me get this straight, it's OK for coppers to have firearms, but oh no....knives? You're a dickhead, plain and simple. I've carried a small pocket knife for years. It comes in handy as a letter opener, to cut twine on packages, open boxes, and even once, to cut a seatbelt.

It's true, it is a violation of CITY ORDINANCE (note, NOT state law) for a civilian (not police) 19 years or older to have concealed upon his person a knife with a blade in excess of 2½ inches (or was it 3? I forgot) and for a person 18 and younger, 2 inches.

Switchblade knifes are illegal for all, including coppers. But I'm wandering off subject. The knives coppers are carrying are utility tools, not a drop knife, illegal weapon, or any other fantasy your pea brain has imagined.

If you go outside the Communist State of Chicago, you'll find millions of average people have a small pocket knife with them. This is not a problem, except in your feeble mind.

So get a life then go fuck yourself.

Oh yeah, and try to have a Happy New Year too!
