Damn terrorists. You gotta love them. They give our media something to go in a frenzy about for a few days.
 
2003-03-04 09:56:34 AM  
What a coincidence. Just when we send them more troops.
 
2003-03-04 09:56:51 AM  
Sad.
 
2003-03-04 09:57:03 AM

they have small weeners anyway, or, so I've heard.

"No group immediately claimed responsibility for the blast, but the military has blamed Moro Islamic Liberation Front rebels for a string of attacks on the island, including a car-bombing of the Cotabato airport."

There's terrorist organization called MILF? Do they have any ties to the CLIT?
 
2003-03-04 09:59:02 AM  
Thank you, Mike Weath, for again insinuating that everything that happens is the fault of the United States.

All battles seem to derive from religious beliefs...

Because rebel/opposition groups are still dumb enough to believe that violence and murder of innocents will get them support and achieve their aim.

Because quite often it works.

I am suppose to go to Siargao Island for a month this spring. That is the airport I am suppose to arrive at.


I would rather not be VOIP'd getting off the plane. Will someone please take care of this for me? I am pretty busy until I leave.

Thanks

Quick question: Does every country with a repressed economy have a "(Insert Country Here) Islamic Liberation Front"?
 
2003-03-04 10:02:11 AM  
Religions never start war.

Yup. Except it's not just rebel/opposition groups. It's every country in the world.
 
2003-03-04 10:02:38 AM  
Just wait, we'll get involved in this too. Its just like the United States Government to stick its nose in everyone elses business. Its like that kid in school that followed you and your friends around that you didn't want to have anything to do with. Its lookin like Canada is the only safe place left in the world.

Hmm... Don't many governments do this as well?
 
2003-03-04 10:02:42 AM  
What a coincidence. Just when we send them more troops.

That's right. If we just left them alone, they'd stop. Oh wait. That's what we were trying before. Kinda shoots your theory to hell, doesn't it?
 
2003-03-04 10:03:02 AM  
Did anyone else click on the Princess Di link on the right? Here's an extract:

Though séances seem like the stuff of sixth-grade sleepovers, anyone willing to shell out $14.95 can watch The Spirit of Diana, a televised séance scheduled to air around the world on March 9.

There are some farked up people in the world.
 
2003-03-04 10:04:56 AM  
You mean, other countries have terrorist attacks, too?
 
2003-03-04 10:06:01 AM  
Red alert? Or Toast?

*sigh*

Explosion at Phillipines airport? .. we must attack Iraq!!
 
2003-03-04 10:08:51 AM  
Dattaway,
Religions never start war.

Nope, you are right. They are just the foundation for building one, and the mortar that holds it together.
 
2003-03-04 10:09:18 AM  
"That's right. If we just left them alone, they'd stop."

Nope, but they'd probably be less prone to target Americans.

"Oh wait. That's what we were trying before."

No, we had troops there before too..

"Kinda shoots your theory to hell, doesn't it?"

No.

2003-03-04 10:12:57 AM  
Targeting innocent people is nothing more than cowardice.
 
2003-03-04 10:13:09 AM  
Don't they have pandas in the phillipines?

Pre 9-11 Reaction: Who gives a shiat about the Philippines.

Post 9-11 Reaction: BOMB IRAQ!!
 
2003-03-04 10:15:59 AM  
Funny how the farkers that complain about linking everything to Iraq, keep linking everything to Iraq.

MikeWeath: do you remember why we had those troops there before we sent these ones in?
 
2003-03-04 10:16:21 AM  
Funny! From today's Wall Street Journal opinions page:

"Ms. Arroyo's flip-flop on allowing U.S. troops to fight Abu Sayyaf isn't the first time she has let President Bush down. In September she went out of her way to prohibit U.S. warplanes from flying over the Philippines during any potential attack on Iraq, even though no overflight had been requested, after an Iraqi diplomat complained about Manila's pro-U.S. stance.

Unreliable friends like Gloria Arroyo have made efforts to defeat global terror networks unnecessarily difficult. Indonesia joined the cause only after terrorists blew up a large chunk of Bali and that country's tourist industry along with it. We hope Manila doesn't have to learn the same hard lesson."
 
2003-03-04 10:17:58 AM  
not trying to sound cynical here, but...

here we go again...

-Nobody gives 2 shiats
-bomb happens, stuff blows up, people die
-Lets go bomb everybody! If your against it you must be a traitor!
-People get tired of bombing
-Nobody gives 2 shiats
-bomb happens, blah blah blah, etc. etc. etc.
 
2003-03-04 10:18:22 AM  
"do you remember why we had those troops there before we sent these ones in?"

To train the government's troops.
 
2003-03-04 10:18:53 AM  
but did any of the pandas get hurt?
 
2003-03-04 10:19:20 AM  
I blame President Taft
 
2003-03-04 10:19:32 AM  
HeatMiser:- Except, Bali was connected to America's war on Terrorism, and Manilla's bomb appears to have nothing to do with it.
 
2003-03-04 10:21:21 AM  
Manilla's bomb appears to have nothing to do with it.

Nothing to do with what, global terrorism? You're saying Abu Sayyef wasn't responsible here?
