For such a serious subject, lmao at/kudos on the headline.
 
2006-06-29 10:53:36 PM  
That combo doesn't make a shred of sense, submitter. If you're going to do it, do it right.
 
2006-06-29 10:55:47 PM  
Subby. I liked it.
 
2006-06-29 10:58:57 PM  
That headline reminds me of the time a cinderblock wall fell on my face.
 
2006-06-29 10:59:06 PM  
I hope you're really enjoying that crack, Submitter.

Could someone prass the salt please?
 
2006-06-29 11:08:22 PM  
It's not far-fetched, either.

If Al Qaeda is perceived as not keeping up with the latest web standards, how will they be able to attract innovative young upstarts? They might be driven to other terrorist groups like digg.com - or fark.com, the original "jihad-casting" newsfeed.

I think that Al-Zarqawi took more risks than just losing his corpse when he went to fight a war on someone else's soil.

I'm sure Al-Zarqawi's footmen would be more than willing to return the corpses of all the shiite Muslims and coalition forces they've captured and slaughtered, right?
 
2006-06-29 11:15:55 PM  
High prase indeed!
 
2006-06-29 11:16:10 PM  
Prasing? What is prasing?
 
2006-06-29 11:17:19 PM  
I laughed. Well done sir.
 
2006-06-29 11:17:45 PM  
LOLZ indeed, submitter.

I wonder if the CIA has tried IP scanning to find and asplode whomever is posting this stuff? I mean, I tried IP scanning on my blog to ban a troll and it worked like gangbusters.

Are they gonna find their 72 virgins on MySpace?

"Prasing? What is prasing?"

That's passing gas while praising...

That's right everyone, go and watch it, give it endless days of media attention...EXACTLY WHAT BIN LADEN WANTS!
 
2006-06-29 11:20:25 PM  
any bets on how long it takes for that website to be shut down?
 
2006-06-29 11:20:31 PM  
... omg dont say web 2.0, you might get a nice letter in the mail telling you its trade marked >.>
 
2006-06-29 11:21:09 PM  
It bore the logo of As-Sahab, the al-Qaida production branch that releases all its messages, and was posted on an Islamic Web forum where militants often post messages.

I'm curious, just where the hell are these fourms
 
2006-06-29 11:21:20 PM  
Is everyone who says "lol" and "well done, Subby" in on a joke involving a pun on the word "praise"? Because I'm lost.
 
2006-06-29 11:21:41 PM  
somemoron: Are they gonna find their 72 virgins on MySpace?

Only if they're into guys.
 
2006-06-29 11:23:05 PM  
Prasing?!!!!!

I'm focusing my attention on that bit of absurd spelling and/or typing; I guess I've let the poor spellers win.

I say the more Bin Laden praises al-Zarqawi, the better. Al-Zarqawi is pretty well hated, even Bin Laden didn't like him initially. Hopefully Bin Laden loses credibility with the assholes that still actually like the innocent civilian, mass-murdering bastard.

And then hopefully we capture or kill him. Hey, a guy can hope, right? Didn't the prez say something about that once?

 
2006-06-29 11:23:58 PM  
I just RTFA and I have to say, Subby that it's sad to wreck a word that's already spelled out for you in the headline of the article.

"The 19-minute message shows an old still photo of bin Laden in a split-screen next to images of al-Zarqawi taken from a previous video."

He's farkin dead, and has been for years.
Makes you wonder who's actually catapulting this propaganda.

He sounded breathy and fatigued with only 36 virgins to go.

Will somebody please post the tape in question? I'd like to see the CIA's cosmetologists progress on making some random "A-rabs" look as close as possible to the real Osama bin Laden who is probably DEAD by now. Come on, dude's got some problems with his internal organs and we're expected he can survive for 5 years livin la vida caveman? I don't buy it.
 
2006-06-29 11:31:38 PM  
If Osama is caught cause of a MySpace page, then we truly, deeply need a MySpace tag here at Fark.

Wow, it's like a terrorism video designed for the Nintendo DS.

"...one that the mujahedeen will remember and praise in poetry and in stories secretly and aloud," bin Laden said."

In victories he was swimm'in,

he killed children, dogs, and women.
 
2006-06-29 11:45:04 PM  
He called Zarqawi "Lion of the Holy war" Everyone Got That? Lion of the Holy War

I dig the pic of Bin laden they have. It's like from 1999. Pro job to be sure. I'm thinking this was like Bin Laden's head shot for his press kit. I wonder if he's still able to keep his whites so white.
