Well, she has bigger balls than I do, that's for sure.

Not only is that cooler, it's less AW-ish than lashing oneself to a post during a hurricaine.

I bet Russia will put a fun spin on this.

If I got shot on the job I'd probably take the rest of the day off. She's clearly dedicated to her job.

Pffft... If she was *really* tough the bullet would have bled, not her.

If she were American, she'd take 5 days off work for "anxiety," claim it gave her hemorrhoids and ruined her faith in God--and then sue Russia for an apology and 10% of its net worth...

Holy shiat. so much for the cease-fire, eh, Pootie-poot? Not only are you breaking longstanding tradition by starting up crap during the Olympics, now your guys are taking pot-shots at reporters? What's next, gonna start shooting the medics?

I know war is ugly, and there are no guarantees, but there used to be certain unwritten points of courtesy. And even the bitterest of enemies were usually honor-bound to at least TRY to respect them.

And the sniper probably got court-martialed for missing.

Didn't Georgia "invade" during the Olympics and Russia just answered back?

Take which Dan Rather. And where?

:(

Has Fark become the all Georgia, all the time, channel? Okay, I get it. Russia invaded Georgia. What's the big deal? It didn't happen in the America so it doesn't count, right?

Too bad it wasn't Geraldo getting a round through the forehead.

If you don't think Putin is still the defacto ruler of Russia you are a very sheltered person.

She'd need those 5 days since it's a dum-dum wound.

Someone post Jessie the Body Ventura from Predator 1 shouting "I ain't got time to bleed." I am too lazy to host it.

Well, I guess he is still prime minister.

I'd graze that.

DrewFL: Ummm...Pooty-poot isn't the president anymore. Great political insight.

You're right, but you're still wrong. He's Prime Minister. And it sure looks like he's still running the show.

Try reading more than just the headlines - it's incredible what one can learn.

Medvedyev (or whatever his name is) is widely regarding as a puppet with Vlad still calling the shots. He's just a caretaker b/c Putin couldn't serve more than two consequetive terms or something like that- current guy is just the intermission and keeping the seat warm.

Two people were shot and killed about 100 ft from where I'm sitting earlier today & I am taking the rest of the farking day off.

/not kidding

From the distance that was fired, it was only wind variances and atmospheric densities that saved her life. We nearly saw a reporter get her stuff blown all open on TV.

Only if she were black. Then Jesse Jackson would take 90% of her 10% then extort more from Russia.

Endorphins, IIRC.

It "invaded" its own city after it was attacked from it, and after Russia had been using it as an excuse to shoot at Georgian aircraft in georgian airspace.

Remove the two /'s from the code you used. Or read this.

Ya know normally I loathe GWB and his "shoot from the hip" approach to governing but this is one time I wouldn't object if he got a little crazy, like say announcing
to the world that since Russia claims it is keeping to the cease fire and its troops areen't on Georgian soil, that its clear that either some its units had gone rogue and were acting without orders or that somehow the Georgian separatists had captured soviet armor and weapons.

And since as we all know, non-uniformed stateless armed forces are terrorists/ and or illegal enemy combatants" and since th USA was committed to a global war on terror, he's ordering a squadron of a-10s and c-130 Specters into Georgian Airspace in 24 hours to assist it in its battle against these nefarious terrorists.

Maybe you should learn to not be such an asshole.

Where is that video of Geraldo shiatting his pants when that tank is fired when he isn't expecting it?
 
2008-08-14 03:20:44 PM
Hey, subby, Dan Rather reported often from the front lines of Vietnam, and was shot at many, many times. In fact, so was the entire CBS News team of that era...back then they were the best news agency on the planet.

the alien was injecting people with pure heroin and then sucking the endorphins out of their brains because the endorphins are an illegal drug where he comes from, a single ounce translates into thousands of doses, or something.

I am in love. Of course, being married to her I would gladly get my biatch @$$ back in the kitchen and bake her a pie.
