So America forces new safety regulations upon the world July 1st and Icelandic harbors that want cruise ships to visit are now pretty much closed off. I can’t stroll around the pier in Reykjavik on a bright summer’s night, sit down and enjoy the sea air; there is a fucking fence there, just to make sure the terrorists don’t blow anything up. The same goes for all major harbors here in Iceland, one of the safest countries on the face of the planet.
August 13th: Clipper Adventurer sends people ashore the tiny island Vigur in the fjord Isafjardardjup. The harbor (if you want to call it that) does not even come close to fulfilling the requirements of the regulations frm July 1st. Not even close. These are rules enforced by Americans and the fucking Americans are the first to break them.
I don’t know how to search for a cite for the regulations because I don’t know what they’re called in English and my vocabulary doesn’t quite cover this area. Here´s a link to Clipper Adventurer’s Itinerary, though.
What in the wide world of sports is this supposed to mean? Why are you forcing these regulations on us if you can’t even follow them your damn selves? I have half a mind to go down to the harbor and tear the fence down but I’d probably get shot - I think there’s another American cruiseliner there now.
I don’t give a flying fuck how you treat your own; take fingerprints of everyone who flies to the US - doesn’t bother me none, I have nothing to do there. Kill your criminals if you want to, the middle ages suit you fine, it seems. Hell, do whatever you fucking want over there but this is my part of the world and you have no fucking right to tell us how to keep safe,* especially if you can’t even follow the rules yourselves*.
For the record, ships have been sunk in the Reykjavik harbour; in 1986, two ships were sunk here by terrorist Paul Watson (who, earlier that year, had tried to kill some Faroese police officers by shooting at their rubber dingy). Paul Watson is not only harbored by the US - he was given the George Bush ‘Daily point of Light’ award in 1999.
Did i say ‘Motherfuckers’ yet?
