Circa 1191 Richard the Lion Heart, King of England on his march to take back Palestine ordered his army to behead 2,500 Muslims in the walled city of Acre when their leaders did not meet his terms of surrender. He, like many of us, was given to violence when it was necessary to facilitate his will.
The Islamic fanatics have no monopoly on beheadings; though we in the West can claim a sort of one-upmanship in that we seemed to have outgrown the beheading mentality, save for the occasional Jeffrey Dahmer aberration. Yes, unlike our Muslim brethren in the Middle East, we don’t decapitate our enemies, or our unruly citizens, our murderers, thieves, adulterers, drug dealers, and prostitutes. We don’t torture them, cut their fingers off, hang them, toast their genitals, liquidate them in vats of acid, or have their families killed. We do electrocute or inject the murderers among us with deadly chemicals, however. And there is some evidence that our CIA is not immune to engaging in torturous activities with those who would like to murder Americans en-masse. But the Western powers no longer institutionalize torture.
The theological debate raging in the Muslim community today is over the interpretation of a certain verse in the Koran, (4:34) regarding marriage and whether husbands have the right to beat their wives if they are rebellious or just send them away until they are ready to obey. The prevailing translation is that you must take the verse at face value. The critical word is “daraba,” which means to beat, hit, spank, strike, flog. The issue of whether Islam teaches beating one’s wife is acceptable is not being debated in the extremist Islamic community; the word debate is not in the playbook of the Islamic fascists. It is being debated in the mainstream Muslim community and that should tell us something.
Neither the Christian Evangelical Society nor the American Humanist Society is debating whether it is acceptable for husbands to beat their wives.
The Christian community is about 2,000 years ahead of Islam regarding the issue of women’s rights. It was the apostle Paul who said somewhere around 60 A.D. that “In Christ, all are equal, male and female, Jew and Gentile, rich and poor.”
With over 55 wars raging in the world and with the post-modern crusades well under way in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East; we might well call this The Age of Violence.
The world, having mastered the skill of violence both on an individual and corporate level, provides a fertile playing field for companies that deliver products and services aiming to help both citizens and countries defend themselves, their property, and their homeland.
Violence must be met with brawn, brains and bullets. And that brings me around to Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC BB: UGHO), a universal antidote to the universal violence sweeping the planet. They have brought torture down to a reasonable level with their home-defense products. They have plenty of brains (see their management team: http://www.redchip.com/visibility/investor.asp?symbol=UGHO&show=management); a lot of brawn; they have 10 consecutive quarters of revenue growth, and plenty of bullets. Their products not only protect our homes, our military bases, and our ports but they protect our commercial and military interests in foreign lands.

Here is why I like UGHO. First, I am paid to like them. And you should be glad I’m paid to like them, because it pays to like them. I would like them even if I were not paid to like them.

With the global threat of terrorism and military conflicts raging across the world, UGHO is at a major inflection point.
