Hunters up in arms after EU game proposal
"EU bureaucrats in Brussels are preparing legislation so shocking for Norwegian hunters that they don't know whether to laugh or cry. The EU wants all game butchered at approved plants and immediately frozen. A trained specialist must be in the vicinity to assess the suitability of the game as food. Further, the EU wants to ban giving game to family or friends."

Now, my hope is this: the Norwegian government finally shows some guts and ardently refuses this. If the Eu still pressurizes Norway into this, we'll never, ever vote 'Yes', and most likely the demand to ditch the undemocratic European Economic Agreement will rise. So, for once I say: Go Brussels, don't back down now!

UPDATE: Fellow Norwegian and not-so-fellow Ayn RandianFredrik Norman also comments on this. A right-left convergence if I ever saw one.

"We were soldiers - Green Beret II
Brendan Miniter: "Mr. Gibson's film, which he might have named "We Were Soldiers, Not Baby Killers," is an argument for honoring the Americans who fought in Vietnam--and what they fought for. John Wayne's 1967 film "The Green Beret" made the same argument, and leftists have despised it since the day it was released. In that film Wayne dared to show the cruelty meted out by the communists and be unabashedly patriotic."

"German officials on Monday expressed their extreme displeasure about the U.S. military announcement that elite German forces had joined the largest ground offensive launched in the war against terrorism in Afghanistan.

A spokesman for the Defense Ministry, Franz Borkenhagen, said officials considered the American "contribution" to be unhelpful. "I am speaking in a reserved manner. I would have preferred that the information about the German deployment in this operation had not been released in this form," Mr. Borkenhagen said."
