Cat Stevens (aka Yussaf Islam) is a pussy
 
2003-03-15 09:00:42 PM  
Yussaf ought to do a duet with the little fat anti-american Dixie Chick (the skanky one)

Is IOL begging for a FARKing?
 
2003-03-15 09:03:13 PM  
Quick, everyone submit IOL links and see if we can set a record for consecutive links from the same source!
 
2003-03-15 09:03:18 PM  
iol @ the situation

Fark Cat Stevens. The man is well-known as a supporter of Hamas and other terrorist groups. He transferred tens of thousands of dollars to hamas to finance suicide bombs and the like. Message of peace?

Why are antiwar people anti-American?
 
2003-03-15 09:06:38 PM  
"The man is well-known as a supporter of Hamas and other terrorist groups."

In case you forgot, Hamas was started and financed by Sharon, who gets his funding from the good ol U.S. of A.
 
2003-03-15 09:06:54 PM  
It's all the same bandwagon. Witness ANSWER, Ramsey Clark, etc. Of course, it's theoretically possible to be antiwar without being anti-American, but I think in most of these folks ' cases the anti-American part came first.

We arent anti-American. We are just anti "have america go out and slaughter people."

We only need five more to break Cosmiverse's record.

Spaluch1: maybe you should fire your fact-checker.
 
2003-03-15 09:10:16 PM  
Theoretically possible? How's this for theory: If it was Iran going to war with Britain, and I didn't want it to happen, would I be anti-Iran?
 
2003-03-15 09:11:14 PM  
Did I miss something? Are only IOL links being posted tonight?
 
2003-03-15 09:11:17 PM  
"maybe you should fire your fact-checker."

I suggest the same to you. I.E. MSNBC, CNN, FOX, etc.
 
2003-03-15 09:11:24 PM  
Yusuf Islam spelled backwards is "no talent".
 
2003-03-15 09:12:12 PM  
Stevens doesn't support Hamas? How farking dumb are you? He's a muslim for chrissake!
 
2003-03-15 09:12:44 PM  
I'm anti war BECAUSE I love this country so much. I want to keep us from doing indefensibly stupid things. If I were anti american, It would be fairly simple to MOVE.
 
2003-03-15 09:12:44 PM  
"Hamas was started and financed by Sharon"- oh, really?
 
2003-03-15 09:13:24 PM  
wow, beaten to the punch pretty quick. that won't stop a farker though.

It's not news, its iol.co.za!
 
2003-03-15 09:13:43 PM  
I have no proof to back it up, but don't you notice that a bombing occurs just when Sharon needs it the most?

Isn't this the guy who said Salman Rushdie should be killed?

Peace, man.
 
2003-03-15 09:14:48 PM  
Hey - I kinda like Cat Steven. Who else could do the soundtrack for "Harold and Maude?"
 
2003-03-15 09:15:54 PM  
That's one of the dumbest things I've ever wasted my time reading. Good job.
 
2003-03-15 09:18:42 PM  
You can download the song for free at catstevens.com.
I liked it.
 
2003-03-15 09:20:41 PM  
LOL IOL LIO IOL
 
2003-03-15 09:21:46 PM  
Harold and Maude was a movie that many of these dolts would never understand.

And these folks don't like Cat Stevens because he doesn't grab his weiner when he sings. At least he doesn't in concert.

"And if you you wanna be mad, be mad
And if you wanna drop bombs, drop bombs,
'cause there's a million ways to end the world, yeah, you know that there are"

I like to grab my weiner when he sings...

/too much information...
 
2003-03-15 09:31:43 PM  
that man is the pride of islam. Too bad that region will have no pride in about 2 weeks.

I call bullshiat on this. You got a link or have you just been listening to too much Rush?
 
2003-03-15 09:31:58 PM  
Shameless, yes Cat (yussaf islam) Stevens did say he was commanded to kill Rushdie.
 
2003-03-15 09:32:25 PM  
I'm not anti-America. But I'm not pro-America either.

I disagree with your war, so I am anti-American.

Get you head out of your ass.

He may not grab his weiner when he sings, but recently I did see him dangle a baby out of his hotel window....

The only indefensibly stupid thing the US has done was to ignore the situation in Iraq as it slowly festered under the previous administration.
Oh, that's right, he did try to do something about it...he launched a cruise missile a couple of times to let Saddam know he was "serious" about Iraq living up to the Gulf War Accords. Idiot.

Fact is, history shows what happens when countries that have agreed to disarm, and don't, are allowed to continue on their path. Witness Chamberlain in Munich. Had he the nads to take on Hitler, at a critical point in time, WWII would have been, if not avoided, alot shorter and less problematic.

Unilateral aggression is wrong. Unfortunately, if anyone on this thread took the time to listen to the actual UN hearings (the positive side of unemployment is that I can watch this stuff), you'd understand that this is not unilateral aggression. The countries that are currently opposing the US had all signed Resolutions similar to 1446 during the Clinton Administration. 1446 was the latest in a series of resolutions that have been geared toward getting some kind of serious attention paid to a growing problem.

Unfortunately, the UN really is chock full of pussies. Let's just call it the League of Nations and be done with it. The UN loves to pass resolutions with no means of enforcement, or timing. What's the value in that?

That said, Harold and Maude was a great movie and while I think Cat Stevens is a moron (as most entertainers are, anyway), he made some pretty good music in his day. Not GREAT music...just pretty good.
 
2003-03-15 09:37:19 PM  
...oh. I could understand using "the pain his voice inflicts" on most country singers, Neil Young (who still rocks, in spite of sounding like an asthmatic Michael Jackson when he sings), or Bob Dylan (likewise, except he sounds more like a disturbed cat). But Cat Stevens's voice is far more pleasant to my ears than, say, Avril Lavigne.
 
2003-03-15 09:40:20 PM  
I liked Cat Stevens, before he turned into a douchebag.

There's the classic 'blame it on Clinton' excuse.

Actually, I think the problem was that Ronald Reagan didn't do anything when Saddam was gassing the Kurds in 1988. If he would have stopped Saddam right then, the war in 1991 wouldn't have happened.
 
2003-03-15 09:44:20 PM  
The situation wasn't even festering anyway. Iraq was a hell of a lot more dangerous when Bush Sr. was in the White House than it is now. Too much CNN on your hands, buddy. They've been the ones pushing this war by exagerrating everything. OMG, empty chemical warheads!!!! GET DOWN!
 
2003-03-15 09:44:25 PM  
Spaluch1, I didn't "blame it on Clinton". I blame it on Saddam. I don't blame anything on Clinton. I simply said that it was pretty damn stupid for him not to deal with the problem while he was in office ONLY BECAUSE IT WAS. I have nothing against Clinton, per se.

Don't jump to conclusions like so many other stupid farking liberals and conservatives.
 
2003-03-15 09:45:19 PM  
The gas that killed the Burds turned out to be Iran's, not Iraq's.

/off topic,sorry

Blame it on Saddam? What's he done to us?
