Everyday Hero stands up to Al Gore the Scaremonger

Necrothreading much?

An Inconvenient ruling for Al Gore's Global Fear Factory: the former US Vice-President turned Enviro-Bogeyman won't be allowed to terrify little British children with impunity and the helping hand of the most Orwellian side of Her Majesty's Brownies.
Schools will have to issue a warning before they show pupils Al Gore's controversial film about global warming, a judge indicated yesterday.
And the hero who stood up against his children's indoctrination and brainwashing is Stewart Dimmock, a "lorry driver from Dover with children aged 11 and 14"
Stewart Dimmock said the former U.S. Vice-President's documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, is unfit for schools because it is politically biased and contains serious scientific inaccuracies and 'sentimental mush'.

He wants the video banned after it was distributed with four other short films to 3,500 schools in February. (...)

The outcome marks a partial victory for Mr Dimmock, who had accused the 'New Labour Thought Police' of indoctrinating youngsters by handing out thousands of Climate Change Packs to schools.
Thus I bid you Sir Stewart Dimmock, champion of Truth, and a proud descendant of Saint George, slayer of the dragon to whom younglings were offered as human sacrifice.
David Miliband, who was Environment-Secretary when the school packs were announced, said at the time: 'The debate over the science of climate change is well and truly over.'
You serpent! Not until the fat lady sings it ain't.

And not as long as Sir Dimmock has a spear to thrust.

Red Collar, actually they're not out in the open, Steve McIntyre is a businessman who had retired and had time to follow his degree (statistics) and check the numbers. If you'll drop back every once in a while you'll find references to other folks from Canada. The ones that you see in the news are unknowledgeble in terms of real science. They're normally called politicians. ;)

You might enjoy this some. It's a bit off topic but I'm just crazy brave that way :)

This is an hour long interview with Australia's Lt Col (Dr.) Dave Kilcullen. He's been one of Gen Petraeus' senior advisors on COIN ops. The interview goes into a decent level of detail on the basics of counter insurgency and also goes into some good specific issues regarding Iraq and Afghanistan.

One of the reasons the Dissident Frogman is my favorite blog site is because of you guys - all the folks that write in with comments, opinions, links, and other contributions to the topics introduced by our charming host, the Dissident Frogman. I can't tell you how much I have learned from each of you. The discussions that take place in the comments section are such a refreshing change from the one-sided monologues of op-eds, speeches, and soft interviews of television, magazines and newspapers. DF - I am so glad you and your site reappeared in cyberspace, and in my opinion, it is better than ever! Thanks for coming back.

P.S. How's the t-shirt project coming along?

Hey Grimmy, have the milbloggers gotten into the Anthro wars yet? It seems that the main stream anthropologium have declared war on anyone working with "The Knuckle Dragging Brutes of Occupation™".

From what little I've seen on the issue, there are those in the Anthro field that are pitching in and doing a fair lot to help, especially in assisting the fine tuning of our military/civil approach to tetchy heathen weirdnesses.

There are those in the Anthro field that declare themselves as deserving of the usual treatment for them what can't decide to back their own during a time of war.

Someday, the rage will break and such intellectual inbred scum will find itself intimately familiar with the concept of "fatal flaw".

Yeah, the beauty about the ones who are helping is that the troops have seen a heck of a reduction in encounters.

My jibe was aimed at the worthless ones that came to biological maturity at the time that I was floating around the far east.

Two things:

First, Gimmy, that link was awsome. Favorite quote: "No counter-insurgency has ever taken less than ten years..."

Second, please tell me I'm dreaming. Al Gore won a Nobel PEACE Prize?! WTF?

Well I just gave Gore another prize, the "Full Speed Ahead" prize for idiots who are going straight to hell.

A phrase, and tactical/strategic concept that you might want to start familiarizing yourself with, so you can be ahead of the discussions when the heathen civvies get started on it...

Distributed Operations (DO).

The below are links to the concept on the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory site.

www.mcwl.usmc.mil/SV/SV_DO.cfm is the front page. At the bottom of the page are two links to articles that go into some depth of discussion into how the concept had to be tested and evaluated and goes into some of the considerations and developments that have arisen from those tests and evaluations.

The articles are written by Marines for Marines so it tends to be in Marine speak but it should be understandable to most heathen.

First off, French Froggie... how are you doing? You're awfully quiet out there. Is your dad improving? I certainly hope and pray that is the case.

As for Al and his Gorebal warming.... the NoBalls Committee has struck again...

You have a choice: One leader who has freed 50 million people from murderous tyranny and political domination. He is universally reviled for it. No prize.

Then you have another "leader" who spent 8 years ignoring murderous tyranny, political domination and cruel genocide. He manages to make a mint from his scaremongering and he is lauded as a hero and given a prize.

To coin a phrase... Sickly transit gloria mundi....
