Stop saying it's World War 3 you tardos!

My condoleances to the families of these civilians and extended condoleances to the families of all Israeli, Lebanese innocents who died and will die

The next Israeli/Canadian hockey game is gonna be mighty, mighty brutal. I can't wait to watch!

This should have had the IRONIC tag, seeing the remarks of the Canadian PM last Friday:

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Friday described the Israeli attacks as justified and measured. Since taking power in February he has shifted Ottawa's stance on the Middle East from one of relative neutrality to a firmly pro-Israel position.

So Israel is killing completely innocent people as it exacts retribution against not-so-innocent people because they killed innocent people. But that's OK because they didn't mean to, right?

Well, if Israel is bombing Canadians, then it look like someone needs to add Canadians to the Axis of Evil.
 
2006-07-16 05:46:14 PM  
That's terrible. But they lived in a border town. I know I certainly wouldn't have stuck around there, if I had been there to begin with.

Still, my condolences.

"That's only 6 Americans" joke in 3...2...1...
 
2006-07-16 05:46:37 PM  
Why were they still in Lebanon, didn't they get the memo?

Incidentally, is there any word on what they were bombing at the time? I can't imagine many Canadians working in munitions factories or sleeper terrorist cells. This smells kinda fishy.

It's OK - all their submarines are in drydock getting fitted for new screendoors.

They didn't get a type of bacon named after them for no reason. The joos are in trouble.

the innocent lives the israelis kill are in the hands of the terrorists. the terrorists try and hide amongst the civilians. the innocents and the terrorists alike get no sympathy from me.

Fighting only begets more of the same. Perhaps we should think that through ..

Whats that in American people? like 2?

Canada will respond by taking out Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler
 
2006-07-16 05:48:33 PM  
the difference will be that canada, a nation of millions, will act with restraint when a handful of it's citizens are killed.

it's certainly a sad and regretful situation, but the entire conflict is a hot, sticky smelly pile of poop, and no country has a boot big enough to stomp it out of existence without getting the stench and slime all over themselves.

as for right now, i respect canada for seeing it for what it is.

if they were brown canadians their life probably does not matter as much as the white ones
 
2006-07-16 05:50:15 PM  
OK. this has been bothering me for a while and I haven't been able to find an answer, so I'll ask here. If Judea was the good Jewish Kingdom of the south, the one that obeyed god and weren't subjected to the Babylonian Captivity, why did they choose Israel, the bad Northerners, as the name for the new country?

Doug_Piranha: We're up to 221 posts on the thread just 2 slots below this.

Yeah, but about 70% of them are from just one farker: Tatsuma.
 
2006-07-16 05:50:29 PM  
Israel is such a horrible country. How can they even call anyone else terrorists? They're the worst. It's not even their land.
 
2006-07-16 05:50:45 PM  
Why were they there? Generally, when people start killing each other, I leave. Eh.

2006-07-16 05:52:12 PM  
Its armed conflict between a amorphous terrorist group and a nation-state. Of course there will be mistakes made. It is tragic for the loss of so many innocent people, but that is the expectation when low intensity warfare becomes high intensity. Hopefully this serves as a warning for everyone to get out of Lebanon before the situation gets worse (and it certainly can get worse).
 
2006-07-16 05:52:21 PM  
There are 40,000 Canadians in the tiny country of Lebanon? Since there are 3.8 million people in Lebanon that means expatriate Canadians make up 1% of the population. Strange.
 
2006-07-16 05:52:55 PM  
Yeah, this is pretty much the war the Jesus freaks were hoping to egg on.
See the whole revelations bible thing is a self-fulfilling prophecy. It will happen because people want it to happen. So just sit back and watch and hope you don't get caught in the crossfire, like these poor unfortunate bastards.

When do we begin to panic?

If this were the Reagan era, we'd now send a couple of bombers over to the middle east, drop a few on lebanon, and a few on some other people, and fly back home, and the next morning issue a statement "Start getting along with each other."

Vandal7000: If Judea was the good Jewish Kingdom of the south, the one that obeyed god and weren't subjected to the Babylonian Captivity, why did they choose Israel, the bad Northerners, as the name for the new country?

Judea was subject to the Babylonian captivity.

STFU_and_RTFM: Why were they there? Generally, when people start killing each other, I leave. Eh.


Because they are Lebanese/Canadian not Canadian/Lebanese. The killed in their home part gives that away.
 
2006-07-16 05:54:03 PM  
World war? Canada gets to have a war with a smaller Middle East power, and is in kahoots with Israel? Is that how I am supposed to interpret the comments on this thread?

Or... don't interpret the comments on this thread?

I hate Canadians I've never met anyway. Maybe the people killed were the 8 or liberals who actually ran away to Canada if (when) Bush got elected, from among the millions who said they would.

Anyone ever have one of those crazy drunk nights? Hello
 
2006-07-16 05:54:22 PM  
I blame the British for this mess...
Oh, and a legal interpretation of a 2500+ year-old tome that's been handed down by word-of-mouth for centuries
And a bit of missplaced sympathy
And other western nations looking for a bit of influence in the mideast.

BTW, you are a fool for taking a vacation in that part of the world anyway. We are all cannon fodder.
 
2006-07-16 05:54:38 PM  
See what you did Tatsuma?

Now you are killing your own countrymen. Chose where your loyalty stands, man! You can't continue to receive subsidized education from Canada, and condone the murder of its people by Israel. Pack your bags outta Canada!

What a shame!
 
2006-07-16 05:55:16 PM  
Not a Jesus freak and no I don't dare say Israeli terrorism, not now, and not with respect to 1967.
 
2006-07-16 05:55:36 PM  
...and Bush will keep backing Israel blindly due to a lot of his constituents are jews. Hooray for harbouring terrorists.

samperkinsdog: the difference will be that canada, a nation of millions, will act with restraint when a handful of it's citizens are killed. doesn't have a neighbor aimng 1,000s of rockets at it and using them every few months for the past six years.

Good thing for Israel that Canadia's missiles have about as much range as Hezbollah's

"The unnamed woman told the all-news LCN television station that her family members were in the Middle East for a summer vacation."

ok, who the FARK goes to the Middle East for a summer vacation. Ok, I would go there for vaca no problem, but right now?! with everything that's been going on there for the last while... man, have a brain.

not saying I don't feel bad for the families of the lost, just wondering what would possess someone to vacation there.
 
2006-07-16 05:56:17 PM  
i hate when people act as if they actually give a shiat when someone they dont know gets killed...
 
2006-07-16 05:56:27 PM  
Bush himself called this 'War on Terror' World War III. (farking idiot)

In any case, there are over 10,000 Canadians living in Lebanon, and anyone who celebrates any of their deaths deserves to be beaten unconscious.

note to self...do not plan vacation in the middle east.

Yup, 3%.. that's a HUGE force to deal with.
 
2006-07-16 05:58:32 PM  
Woops.
 
2006-07-16 05:58:35 PM  
I think it is high time a neighboring power moves in temporarily to control the situation. I am looking at you, Syria.

Just kidding.
