Surrender The P!nk

I think I’m in love with P!nk. Or maybe just the little leather miniskirt she wears in this video:

For some reason, it reminds me of this. But enough of that. I’ve always contended that nostalgia is the surest path to an early grave.

Haven’t got time for much commentary today. So instead I will leave you with this snippet from a recent Haroon Siddiqui article:

“You didn’t have to go any further than the blanket coverage of the fifth anniversary of Sept. 11 to know the great divide between the United States and the rest of the world, and also between those Americans and Canadians, like Stephen Harper, who support George W. Bush’s geopolitics and those who don’t, namely, the majority of Americans and Canadians.

While each of the 2,973 victims of 9/11 needs to be remembered, no less worthy of commemoration are those sacrificed in the failed war on terrorism:

– The 2,670 Americans, and the 42,000 to 100,000 Iraqi civilians killed in Iraq.

– The 16 Canadian soldiers killed since May in Afghanistan.

– The tens of thousands of Afghan civilians killed, maimed or displaced since the toppling of the Taliban five long years ago.

– The hundreds of Palestinians killed and the hundreds of thousands starving in the Israeli-occupied territories, now with Canadian complicity.

These Muslim victims were, and are, not all terrorists. Not to see the connection between their tragedy and the Muslim anger around the world is to be obtuse or ideologically blind.”
