The criminal provocations keep coming. There is no effective justice system to stop the aggression.

 

After British Commandos Seize Oil Tanker, Iran Accuses UK of Committing ‘Maritime Piracy’ on Behalf of US

 

“If Britain does not release the Iranian oil tanker, it is the authorities’ duty to seize a British oil tanker,” said Mohsen Rezai, a senior Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps commander

Yesterday I pointed out the pathetic progressive method of challenging government criminality by not challenging it.  They beg criminals to be nice on a fairly regular basis.  “Please Mr. Hitler, it’s not nice sending all those people away on cattle cars.  It’s unprecedented.  We’ll still vote for you though, but your unwarranted attacks on our Jewish neighbors doesn’t seem right.

So today, yet another weasel-worded embarrassment to political action, this time from CREDO:

“Tell Eric Holder: Stop your attack on the First Amendment

“The petition reads:

Attorney General Holder: Your department’s seizure of two months worth of the Associated Press’ phone records amounts to nothing less than an unprecedented attack on the First Amendment. But sadly, this indiscriminate surveillance of journalists is part of a larger pattern within your department to go after whistleblowers without consideration of the vital role a free press plays in our democracy.  We join the Associated Press in calling on you to return the records you seized and to destroy any copies you have made. In addition, we call on you to end your dangerous war on whistleblowers.””

Iceland is looking better and better all the time.
