All I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land
Trying to find, trying to find where I've been.

According to Page, that's his favourite Zeppelin tune. Frankly, it's my least favourite.

I'm sure there is a Zeppelin reference that could have been made.

If you take nuclear weapons out of the equation...

India has a much larger army, but most Indians are vegitarian, so they would collapse from weakness before they could win.

No wonder they fought two wars to a draw.

It's the fight over control of the lucrative sweater trade that motivates all the violence over there, right?

i'm still pissed about the page/diddy remix

See the parade of vain people
In their Cashmere sweaters.
For me Kashmir
Is just a Led Zeppelin song.

Sure is a lot of bloodshed over some fuzzy sweaters.
I hope they're worth it.

Is this the first real escalation since both India and Pakistan aquired nuclear technology? If so, then it really is scary.

/Yikes

Indians are only vegetarian 6 days a week.

all the good names are gone: I'm sure there is a Zeppelin reference that could have been made.

I don't think so. Not everything is a Led Zepp reference.

/Sheeeze.....the way people fish for funny references on fark

DonnieFarko: I dunno, but I'm fairly certain that vegetarians don't wear skulls around their neck. Or is that just vegans?

those are tofu skulls.

Greedy Indian occupiers are illegally stealing land from the natives. Kashmir is Islamic land because Muslims live there. That's why the koran must be the highest law in Kashmir and Islam the only recognized religion.

Thos small skulls belonged to the children that starved to death in his village. Dhalism has fought street fights and drove cabs to feed them.

/wonders if beoswulf knows that as many Muslims live in India as live in Pakistan. Of course, since there's ample freedom of religion in India, no big fuss is made about the Muslims who live there.
 
2007-01-01 02:26:47 PM  
I have a question - is there anything of any value in the Kashmir worth fighting over? There is some limited tourism, but other than that....what? It's my understanding that it lacks both arable land and mineral resources, and that it has always been dirt-poor. But my knowledge is less than encyclopedic. Or is it considered "strategic" because of it's location?

Muslims are routinely oppressed in India, lacking land ownership and other wealth. Hinduism is an insult to Muslims.
But Muslims are also the fastest growing population in India.

India: 155,000,000
Pakistan: 159,171,000

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pakistan

I'm guessing he doesn't.

Dude, wtf? "Hinduism is an insult to Muslims."? No its not, STFU.

fredphelps
Beoswulf does have a point about "no big fuss is made about the Muslims who live there." being crap. That's like saying race isn't an issue in American society.
 
2007-01-01 02:55:54 PM  
Antho: Thanks for providing the exact figures to back up what I was saying, although beoswulf doesn't seem to be disputing that point.

beoswulf: Are you even reading what you write? "Hinduism is an insult to Muslims"? Are you trying to defend Muslims or slander them? Perhaps you're just yanking my chain. (With a "name" like mine, I'm guilty of doing that myself to others.)
 
2007-01-01 02:58:22 PM  
Yes, very clever submitter. Glossing over a conflict that has claimed tens of thousands of lives with a joke. You, sir, have taken the notion of comic genius to new heights!!

Can some one please explain the Siegfried and Roy stuff over this scarf? I don't get it as I just know them as Las Vegas animal act guys

Muslims are returning Islamic rule to India as it once was. Any land that was once Islamic is still Muslim land.
 
2007-01-01 03:44:15 PM  
"Muslims are returning Islamic rule to India as it once was. Any land that was once Islamic is still Muslim land."

And if the hundreds of millions of Hindus, Jains, Christians and Sihks who live there don't care for that idea?

/Just doing my part.
//Feedin' the troll.
 
2007-01-01 03:47:45 PM  
ok so when are they gonna go after the part that China controls. And if all Muslims want there to be Islamic law in countries where Muslims reside why aren't they trying to do the whole terrorism and protests in China.

/Just saying
//Believe the Mongolians have some ancient claim to that area too
