Worth Reading - Short Takes, 2/22/08

Short takes is Freedom Fighter's way of cramming a lot into a small space..kind of like the young gentleman above. Here's a brief rundown of some of today's items of interest:

EU Hopelessly Naive About Russia - Tap Blog - if which blogpal Tap reveals some of the manuevering going on behind the scenes on Kosovo, including an explicit Russian threat to use military force to resolve the problem...

Mickey Mouse turns grey as Japan runs out of children for its theme parks - From the London Japan's birth rate has continued to decline, Tokyo Disneyland is finally yielding to the realities of modern Japan: Mickey Mouse has decided to chase the “silver yen”.

Caroline Glick:Kosovo's stark warning - Valuable background and analysis on the folly of Kosovo and how it's a dangerous precendent,not only for Israel but for the US from the Jerusalem Post's ace columnist.

For an even more explicit view of the subject,read Why Belgium Loves Kosovo. And the Consequences for Southern Californiaby Thomas Landen in today's Brussels Journal.

When Jihad Came To America - Andrew McCarthy in Commentary has a superb article on how the Clinton Administration allowed Egypt’s leading radical, Omar Abdel Rahman the so-called 'Blind Sheik'to settle in America, how he was able to stay an dgranted permanent residency because of America's Byzantine immigration laws and lapses in security and how he was instrumental in radicalizing and expanding what Mccarthy refers to as `the nascent but already functioning jihadist community' in the US. A must read.
