In ITS bombing.
2003-04-11 10:53:20 AM  
I'm glad they escaped. It's to friggin hard to hang them by their intestines from a minaret when they are safely behind bars.
2003-04-11 10:54:14 AM  
Goddamn sand castle prisons....
2003-04-11 10:55:22 AM  
they should've taken the prisoners to Camp X-Ray!
see if they can escape

I hope this was only a matter of "We'll give you 1 day's headstart. Now RUN!", and then we send out the Predators w/Hellfires.
2003-04-11 10:58:30 AM  
The men broke out of a window ?????
what kind of prisons do they HAVE in Yemen?

When the USS Cole was repaired by Northrop Grumman, it became the first vehicle to receive a new warning and targeting system designed to counter people in dinghies, Zodiacs, etc.
2003-04-11 11:00:03 AM  
What have the arabs done for you lately?
2003-04-11 11:02:22 AM  
Um, thanks for the emphasis there, Swollag.

Incidentally, doesn't it seem weird that all this time later the men are still "suspects?" I mean, the attack happened over two years ago... guess they don't have that "due process" or "habeas corpus" thing over there.
2003-04-11 11:02:32 AM  
Wuzzzzup party peeps?
2003-04-11 11:02:53 AM  
All heading for Syria, no doubt we'll hear
2003-04-11 11:03:56 AM  
Actually, come to think of it, we sorta don't either...

But hey, on the other hand, this ought to stop the biatching about holding all those Arabs in Camp Xray without a trial. See, we're just trying to make them feel at home!
2003-04-11 11:06:12 AM  
Yemeni officials said the men may have left Aden and headed for al-Qaeda strongholds in the northern province of Shabwah.

OOOOPS yemeni officials just said they have al queda strongholds in their northern province? say hello to the u.s marines and army! dumbasses
2003-04-11 11:06:33 AM  
It's the terrorists.

Oh, wait! It really IS the terrorists.
2003-04-11 11:08:15 AM  
Yeeeemmmmiinnn! You've got sum 'splanin to do!
2003-04-11 11:09:29 AM  
I guess third-world prisons aren't legitimate targets in our war on terror yet. Gotta give these things time to wind their way through the bureaucracy, I s'pose. Maybe next season.
2003-04-11 11:10:42 AM  
Xoopx --

As far as I know, there already are US forces (in small numbers) assisting the Yemeni government, probably in an advisory role. The Yemenis probably want to both avoid sharing the Taliban's fate, and also to regain some form of central authority over the tribals that tend to be al-Qaeda sympathizers.
2003-04-11 11:11:10 AM  
I'm wondering if we let them escape so we can watch where they go.
2003-04-11 11:11:11 AM  
Fellow Americans peasants,

I would like to announce to you that the suspects in the USS Cole bombing have escaped from Yemen.

After their escape, they split into three groups. The first group rode a nuculear missile to North Korea. The second group rode a missile with a chemical warhead to Syria and the third group rode a missile equipped with a biological warhead to Iran.

Along the way, whenever any of them needed to go to the bathroom, they would stop in whatever country they were over. After urinating on its citizens, they would install an oppressive regime and continue their flight.

Right now, North Korea, Syria, and Iran are housing these terrorist dictators and the Weapons of Mass Destruction they rode in on. It would be unpatriotic and un-American of you not to support the impending invasions on these three countries.

Thank you.

Would anyone die in a good carpetbombing of Northern Yemen apart from some Camels and some Al-Qaeda POS?
2003-04-11 11:13:53 AM  
Puckhead: "The Apple Dumpling Gang"... You must be as old as me.
2003-04-11 11:14:42 AM  
So...we're going after Yemen next. That's no prob. They've hated Americans since...forever. They need an ass kicking.
2003-04-11 11:17:52 AM  
What?! I though they would have been beheaded by now.
2003-04-11 11:22:31 AM

haha comedy gold

"I'm wondering if we let them escape so we can watch where they go."

well I have to say that it didn't take the conspiracy theoriests long on this one. It has got to be some kind of record.
2003-04-11 11:22:43 AM  
2003-04-11 11:25:44 AM  
Jakjak - can't remember the plot, just remember I laughed my ass off as a kid.

GEAH - is two years enough time to implant homing devices into [alleged] terrorists?
yeah, i guess that might work.
2003-04-11 11:26:12 AM  
very suspicious
2003-04-11 11:26:54 AM  
Yemeni officials said the men may have left Aden and headed for al-Qaeda strongholds in the northern province of Shabwah..

Sounds like they watched them escape.
2003-04-11 11:28:53 AM  
Good now we can kill them. Launch the predators boys!
2003-04-11 11:29:18 AM  
I'm sure if they left Aden they went to the casino in town first.

You know - Aden and a-betting.

Oh. My. Gawd! You're going to Yemen?!
2003-04-11 11:31:59 AM  
For anyone who's interested:

I have now typed out my religious beliefs in my profile. Beware because it is a long read.

As for this, it wouldn't surprise if the yemens let them escape. Of course, it is possible we "Let them out to see where they would go" but Yemen does have a notorius anti-america demographic.
2003-04-11 11:33:31 AM  
Does that make you a "Stuff-I-made-up-out-my-butt-atarian", Jay?

I am Jack's complete lack of interest.

I smell a trap Re: Your beliefs, Emperor-Jay.
2003-04-11 11:39:13 AM  
are these predators the ones in the movie?
2003-04-11 11:39:14 AM  

I'm so glad you have used the FREEDOM OF SPEECH so kindly offered to you by hundreds of thousands of dead patriots to express your political view. I assume you plan on running for public office to improve our country, or are politically active some other way and aren't just biatching? No? Then stfu.
2003-04-11 11:41:29 AM  
Puckhead: I suspect we're about the same age then. All I remember is that my family saw it at the drive-in double featured with Logan's Run. BTW, who thought of showing those together?!
2003-04-11 11:42:03 AM  
Emperor-Jay Man you soo cwaazzzyy.

I bet the bombing of the Cole can be blamed on Christians somehow as dictated by Fark law. I am not a troll. To prove this I think the SbB girls should be present on the USS Cole.
2003-04-11 11:42:58 AM  
I assume you plan on running for public office to improve our country...

I have already been selected to public office.

Just look around you to see how I have improved the country.
2003-04-11 11:45:13 AM  
Is it just me, or does this story read like the pitch for a badly contrived Brucheimmer sequel?
2003-04-11 11:50:21 AM  
Some prime excerpts from emperor-Jay's rantings:

"the transition from ape to man was nearly instaneous"

"Jesus rosed from his tomb"

"all his human feelings intack"

"some of the psy energy leaked its way to Earth where is caused John's vision"

Are you engrish perhaps?
2003-04-11 11:51:41 AM  
Nutdip -

"He not nuts - he CRAZY!"

You know - Aden and a-betting.

That made me laugh. Thanks for the brief respite.
2003-04-11 11:54:28 AM  
Hey, I was just offering up a possibility. However, if I turn out to be right (which is almost always the case), then the anti-America liberals around here will have another meal of crow to digest. Of course, after their support of Saddam, they pretty much have accrued a lifetime supply.
2003-04-11 11:54:29 AM  

Word to the wise: if you feed this troll, he will only keep posting.
2003-04-11 11:54:33 AM  
you may think it's funny but I know there is a group that goes on the community cable channel back in Raleigh/Durham NC that believes that tripe. Yaweh, space aliens, genetic mutation/engineering by aliens of the human race, etc. Was always funny to see them on the channel. I would watch and chuckle to myself knowing that there was someone out there more unbalanced than myself ;)

I just didn't know they had a website because I never bothered to look them up. I couldn't even tell you their name.
