    Saleh is about to join Mubarak on the list of dictators we can no longer support.

    My brother has been working in Yemen for about the last six months for a French oil and gas company. He came home on leave in late February (he gets three weeks off every eight weeks) and was all set to go back in mid-March, when the company called him and told him not to return until further notice. He's still getting paid for the time-being, but no work has been done in about a month (a large portion of their labor force is native Yemeni and those guys are in the street protesting). I imagine they're getting close to shutting things down, although the state department may tell all Americans to get out before then anyway.

    And in other news, Afghans are enraged and enacting violence and death because someone burned some Korans. But that's not news here.

    Other than being on the front page of every major newspaper and newspaper website in the United States, that is completely correct.

    I think he might have meant "here" as in SportsJournalists.com.

    There was a thread. It didn't go well.

    You forgot to post his on the I Hate Muslims board.

    Nah the Muslims are doing enough hating on their own. And we keep hoping it goes away by ignoring it.

    Of course I was. This is like Pravda, scratching the news and commentary we don't want to know...living in denial of what these people are about, going out of the way to avoid offending them. It's beyond silly.

    Don't worry. Your hatred of Muslims is well-documented.

    I call them as I see them and as most of the legitimate world sees them, which is far better vision than represents a significant number here.

    Let's stick to Yemen.

    If we're dropping support for him, he could be on his way out. That's a pretty big deal.

    Wrong. Most of the legitimate world is not bigoted, as you are.
