/sick bastard
2003-04-12 10:10:10 AM other news, top Iraqi Generals, possibly al' Saheed (sp?), are surrendering to US forces.

Live on foxnews

hell of a pic!

When do we go liberate the people of Saudi Arabia, then?
2003-04-12 10:12:38 AM  
Well, you can't say Saudi Arabia is not winning the war on drugs.

hey its their legal system for over 1000 years, why change?
2003-04-12 10:19:00 AM  
That's why I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee.

Or at least I would be, if I was from there, because they don't take their trips on LSD, and they respect the college dean.

may he rest in pieces
2003-04-12 10:28:53 AM  
They can't hold a candle to my own state, Texas. We out-execute em all, per square mile.
2003-04-12 10:29:56 AM  
That's a poor excuse for an execution pic.
2003-04-12 10:34:28 AM  
So the U.N. is against this practice because it is cruel and like torture, but when the U.S. does it, it's just lethal injection.

Oh, that's right--we don't pay any attention to what the U.N. thinks.
2003-04-12 10:36:05 AM  
It's April, how can it be only 3?

And what happened to the counter on the fark main page?
2003-04-12 10:38:16 AM  
"Executions are usually carried out in public with a sword."
2003-04-12 10:42:32 AM  
With blurry postage stamp.
2003-04-12 10:46:46 AM  
That's really gotta hurt.
2003-04-12 10:47:32 AM  
No matter how you slice it, it would pretty much suck to live in the mid east. What a rotten part of the planet

Yes, I admit. I clicked on the link because the headline said "with pic". And I was disappointed.

If somebody commits a crime justifying execution, I don't have a problem with beheading.
2003-04-12 10:48:34 AM  
That sword was looking a bit rusty. I hope this guy was up to date with his tetanus shots.
2003-04-12 10:50:11 AM  
Call me the offspring of a tv weather girl and village idiot if you must but I don't get the headline...
2003-04-12 10:52:18 AM  
Dudes.....that's cold!

All for a taste of that sweet sweet horse.

Let this be a lesson to you kids. Don't screw up your head with dope. Goofballs make ya goofy. Say 'yes' to drugs and ya might lose yer head. Aaaoowooooo....

...i got a hangover...
2003-04-12 11:00:29 AM  
Eps, The headline is a counter of how many executions have taken place in an arab country this year. It got up to about 29 or something last year if I remember correctly.
2003-04-12 11:07:59 AM  
Please someone photoshop a closeup of that pic!
2003-04-12 11:08:07 AM  
It was in the 40's last year... and isn't this #4, not 3? Maybe I'm wrong, dunno...
2003-04-12 11:19:59 AM  
this is definitely the only redeeming quality of the middle east. well, that, and oil.
2003-04-12 11:21:51 AM  
Would someone enlighten me as to what a headline of "3" is supposed to mean?
2003-04-12 11:28:12 AM  
The beheading was the third this year and was carried out in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah.

...there 'ya go.
2003-04-12 11:31:29 AM  
I would probably prefer beheading over, say, hanging or electrocution any day. Unless the executioner was sickly looking and/or crosseyed.

Heck, I might even give tips on his grip for maximum performance.
2003-04-12 11:32:20 AM  
I guess John Popper ain't headed to Saudi Arabia any time soon
2003-04-12 11:36:42 AM  
Smuggling heroin into an islamic country? If smuggling equals sports, this is an Extreme Sport!
2003-04-12 11:40:47 AM  
Any of you Farkers out there STILL oppose the Second Amendment? That's what you're looking at in this country if the right of the people to defend themselves is ever abolished.

Think about it.
2003-04-12 11:42:20 AM  
the guy won't actually rest in pieces, they have a doctor sew the head back on afterward. saudis. they're weird.
2003-04-12 11:45:13 AM  
Note to self: Do not sumggle drugs into Saudi Arabia.
2003-04-12 11:46:38 AM  
There were really more than three, we just don't hear about it because of Iraq and SARS.
2003-04-12 11:50:51 AM

Not just ANY Arab country. Saudi Arabia.
2003-04-12 11:55:54 AM  
I thought the "3" was when one idiot killed another idiot and was executed, making 2, and the "3" indicated there was always another idiot out there that needed killing. or something.
2003-04-12 11:59:28 AM  
that was one sorry excuse for a pic...darn it, i was looking forward to seeing that a sick sick monkey

*one ticket straight to hell please*
2003-04-12 12:06:56 PM  
no pic the Saudi don't make the top 3​s_execut ions_dc_3
2003-04-12 12:09:48 PM  
Lol hodgery, I just saw that article.
2003-04-12 12:10:25 PM  
That's just three in Jeddah, and Saudi's a big country.

Arabnews and SPA are less than forthcoming about grand totals these days.
2003-04-12 12:17:45 PM  
2003-04-12 12:31:56 PM  
3? shiat, we execute more than that here in Texas before lunch.
2003-04-12 12:34:09 PM  
"may he rest in pieces"

Now thats funny!
2003-04-12 12:39:52 PM  
What are you all upset about? The fact that it's done with a sword or the fact that its done in public?

Apart from the public humiliation, beheading is pretty humane.

Was the person given a fair trial? If so, I don't have a single problem with it.
2003-04-12 12:41:02 PM  
I may have my brain scrambled from all the box wine, but wasn't there
a similar headline counter going on for Texas on FARK about 2 years
2003-04-12 12:46:19 PM  
Okay guys, don't lose your heads over it!

Ahahah geddit? Head? Lose? It? Over?
2003-04-12 12:46:56 PM  
if the U.S. did this, we would see a drug-use drop like no other.
