Lebanon: Progress in the long war? 

If this doesn't outrage Hezbollah, I don't know what will.

In Faraya, Lebanon, a fashion show sponsored by Absolut Vodka devoted to lingerie:

Whether or not they have democracy, they at least have whiskey and sexy (reference here).

They’ll get the democracy “thing” as soon as they hear about “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”!

Anecdotally, your mouse is on the pulse of the driving force of international geopolitics with this well chosen thread, may I say?

However, in the interest of complete objectivity, there ought to be some minimum number of times the slides must be thoroughly examined. Right? Moreover, additional links should be sought and acquired in order to limit sampling bias. With that in mind, the posting by others of further linkages would be greatly appreciated.

Personally, the use of my time on a Saturday evening in the furtherance of science and the advancement cultural understanding is not an onerous sacrifice.

With the requisite BS aside, where does one find more T & A.?

Nothing freaks out a jihaddi more than the thought of sex with someone other than a boy or a goat.

Darn! 2164th beat me to the punch with the obligatory sex-with-a-goat gag. I'm obviously slowing down in my old age. I probably should sign this "2165th".

That's how we should be fighting the culture war. Bikinis, Jack Daniels, and the pursuit of happiness are more persuasive (and pervasive) than armed occupation.

Ironically, when US conservatives look at Europe's topless beaches, hash bars, and lengthy vacations, they decry them as godless and lazy.

No LB, lingerie keeps productivity up. Hash isn't really known for that...

The Saudi government warned store owners yesterday that they have two months to comply with a decree banning men from selling lingerie and other women’s apparel or face punishment.

No word was published as to whether, or to what extent, loping would occur. Hmm…What sort of sword would the Royal Executioner use?

Nearly 500 Saudi women will be trained by the Saudi education and training establishment to work as saleswomen in lingerie shops, as security guards and electrical and electronic maintenance workers…”

Whether the security guards will be authorized to flog was not mentioned.

I've never heard US conservatives denounce Europe's topless beaches, there really aren't any hash bars any more, and Europeans -- by world standards -- are lazy. Indeed, this is one conservatives who rather likes the topless beaches.
