Just find their base on Mustafar and end it already.

If this plan does not involve genocide, I predict it not being over within centuries, let alone days.

Why not give it back to England? Tell them, remember that colonialism and that country you farked up a hundred years ago? Well, you need to fix it.

As long as they implement it on a Tuesday...

"Gen Abrial's new post was created in 2002."

That's a little misleading.... It was re-designated. It used to be "Supreme Allied Commander, Atlantic"

I'm pretty sure that even genocide wouldn't help. Whoever moved in to take over the empty land would find poppies a pretty good crop, and have the same crappy infrastructure and lack of exploitable resources.

Still, we won't know until we try.

I suggest starting in NW India, sweeping across to Israel, then turning S/SE and cleaning off everything between the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea.

Excellent. Perhaps he can bring some of those winning tactics the French developed in Algeria to bear.

FTFA: France is among the top five contributors to Nato operations and currently has some 3,000 troops in Afghanistan, where it has suffered significant losses.


Only a BBC liberal could have typed that with a straight face.

Did anyone else thought that the monkey the headline was referring to was Bush?

stuhayes2010: Why not give it back to England? Tell them, remember that colonialism and that country you farked up a hundred years ago? Well, you need to fix it.

The UK has always been one of the most underrated douchebags in modern history anyways. They sat on their hands during the Rwandan Genocide even though they created the mess, so don't be surprised when they don't claim their fark-ups.

I hope this doesn't involve cacti or monkeys that steal undies.
 
2009-09-10 12:56:34 PM  
The rational part of me wants to say probably not a bad idea - the French are putting their butts on the line in many of the NATO operations.

But the snarky side of me says required NATO training will now include "white flag waving", "don't just retreat - run away" and "tactical taunting (part deux)".

stuhayes2010: Why not give it back to England? Tell them, remember that colonialism and that country you farked up a hundred years ago? Well, you need to fix it.

Britain actually knows how to fix a country pretty well. It usually involves turning the natives against one another to the point of genocide and then shooting anyone who so much as sneezes in the general direction of a Brit. When everyone's dead, the Brits start shipping out natural resources, sexing up the population, and putting the surviving native children into schools they found and teach them about how awesome Britannia is so they all grow up with English accents.

Unfortunately, somewhere along the line the world got all uptight about the whole rape, genocide, looting, and rape part of this plan.
