    Jessica Alba Calls TMZ, Bill O'Reilly the Stupid Ones

    link

    OK, with four and a half days left in my vacation, I am getting a little bored, but this gave me a few laughs.

    Of course, I would have no problem with Jessica Alba lashing out (or doing anything else) at me/ to me or whatever.

    "Last week, Mr. Bill O'Reilly and some really classy sites (i.e.TMZ) insinuated I was dumb by claiming Sweden was a neutral country. I appreciate the fact that he is a news anchor and that gossip sites are inundated with intelligent reporting, but seriously people...it's so sad to me that you think the only neutral country during WWII was Switzerland. Check out: [Wikipedia link] if you want to see what I was referring to. I appreciate the name calling and the accurate reporting. Keep it up!!"

    LOL Well people would typically say, "Be neutral like Switzerland." Not neutral like Sweden!

    Someone tells you they're from Austria and you ask them if they put the shrimp on the barby, mate.

    She's an idiot for calling O'Reilly a news anchor.

    She is right.

    TMZ and O'Rielly are wrong. Sweden is still a neutral country.

    Then again it is not the first time O'Rielly does not fact check, even not the first time O'Rielly does not fact check facts about Sweden.

    She's not only good looking, but she is good looking AND has at least some intelligence. That is doubly good in my book.

    Well O'Rielly rarely fact checks anything outside the US borders, so it is pretty easy to pick his arguments apart.

    He once used a debunked report on gay marriage (was against it of course), where among other nations, Sweden and Denmark were mentioned. The report and O'Rielly claimed that since Sweden and Denmark introduced registered partnerships (gay marriage) the marriage rate in the countries had fallen dramatically and children born outside of wedlock had exploded. Now if he had bothered to go to the Danish or Swedish statistical department (it is in English too), then he would have seen that the report's numbers were false and in actual fact the reality was no change at all. Plus he of course forgot to mention the changes in society over the years and the differences between Sweden/Denmark and the US when it comes to the whole marriage thing. But hey, he got his homophobic rantings over to his audience without any one questioning his motives or his figures..

    How neutral can Sweden be if it has troops fighting in Afghanistan? She messed up and said Sweden when she meant to say Switzerland. If she would have just dropped it that would have been the end of it.

    It would have been funnier in Mandarin Chinese as the names of the two countries have the same first character.

    However, Sweden has been neutal from the time of its embarassment in the Napoleonic Wars (resulting in the loss of Finland to Russia) through the Cold War.

    Although Sweden has been militarily neutral for nearly two centuries, it has been active in contributing troops to peacekeeping missions. During the 1950-53 Korean war, it even sent a military hospital to Korea, and later in the 1950s, began providing military observers and peacekeepers in the Middle East. Sweden, like Switzerland, has a small professional armed force, augmented by a huge reserve (containing all males of military age fit for military service.) The peacekeepers are a combination of professionals, and reservists who volunteer for the duty.

    Korea was a UN action. My guess is that the Middle East actions you note were also UN actions.

    Unlike Switzerland, Sweden was a UN member through the Cold War.
