Only dogs that don't have beards as long as their fists.
2001-10-02 11:27:13 AM  
Those zany Talibanana's...

They are completely screwed, morons.

NEWS: Allah gave Muhammed AbuDhabi a pudding beard today after burning 32 dogs.
2001-10-02 11:28:07 AM  
Hmmmm, smacks of propoganda, but i will go along with it. What the hell? Burning Dogs? That is just weird, I have to say, those towel head mofo's have a few screws loose.

Put PETA members on the front line. Maybe we can kill two birds with one stone.

Oops, sorry PETA, I didn't mean to imply violence towards birds.
2001-10-02 11:33:05 AM  
Holy shiat! They burned dogs! Let's retreat immediatly! We are no match for them!
2001-10-02 11:33:30 AM  
Dear god, no!! Burn the flags! Leave the dogs out of it! They don't even HAVE a country alliance!!!

This is inhumane. It's high time for these leaders to be disposed. Or, as they say in Catch-22, "We're going to disappear them."

JUST the leaders though. Don't opress the opressed. Liberate the people crushed under the Taliban's thumb. It's not their fault...the U.S. PUT the Taliban in power.


Where's the link to the Farkistan info page? I can't find it. Is it only in that old thread? Drew should link to it from the main page under "More Fark"
2001-10-02 11:38:10 AM  
It's one thing to piss off the entire civilized world, but now they went and got PETA involved...

Taliban Sets Fire to Dogs

doo dah... doo dah...
2001-10-02 12:10:58 PM  
The hairy dykes of PETA will destroy the Taliban once and for all!
2001-10-02 12:14:07 PM  
Sick farks. It's time to start blasting away.
2001-10-02 12:14:23 PM  
It's hard to know what to believe and what's just flat-out lies. why are we only hearing about this stuff now, 10 days after the fact? Not to mention the soldiors terrorizing praying citizens and what-not. Maybe this is old news. has anyone heard about this before today?
2001-10-02 12:16:51 PM  
oh yeah. and the taliban were also running through hospitals ripping babies out of incubators.
its true!
2001-10-02 12:17:15 PM  
Foolish.Those dogs could've been used in combat!
2001-10-02 12:32:06 PM  
I find it funny that the Taliban are doing this, while we are giving the Afghan citizens food.

You can't eat an AK-47. The taliban aren't lookin' very good right now.
2001-10-02 12:35:37 PM  
Ewwww...the stench. The burning dogs I mean, not the people.
2001-10-02 12:38:38 PM  
Brings new meaning to "I Triple-Dog-Dare you".
2001-10-02 12:45:22 PM  
i really hope the assholes in charge over there bite it. i mean, they sucked enough before- but i love dogs. man's best friend...

i'm thinking of enlisting- college is getting old anyway.
2001-10-02 12:48:30 PM  
You know, my friend, I think that maybe YOUR beard is too long!
2001-10-02 12:54:39 PM  
The dogs brought it on themselves. First of all they don't worship correctly. The female dogs are always licking their poonie in public. They shiat everywhere. They did nothing to help the women who were being stoned for having noisy shoes. They just don't care about anybody except other dogs.

They deserved it.
2001-10-02 12:58:47 PM  
snipdaddydad: i agree. all dogs that lick their poonie in public must die.
2001-10-02 01:01:50 PM  
I don't understand the reasoning. The sick farks.
2001-10-02 01:03:12 PM  
If I could do that I would never leave the house.
2001-10-02 01:06:08 PM  
Yea ..lets start buring dogs, cats, birds, fish, sea monkeys show the opposition that, yes we will burn your pets.

2001-10-02 01:08:10 PM  
Stinkbug - do you really want to lick a dog's poonie?
2001-10-02 01:09:58 PM  
Don't you see - they were CAPITALIST dogs!
2001-10-02 01:11:53 PM  
Anyone got that picture of the dog when he was on fire from"There's Something About Mary?"
Those Taliban are fuggin' animals that need to be put down,put to sleep,exterminated,etc.
2001-10-02 01:13:59 PM  
yeah after 6,000 or so citizens, these 3 dogs are really going over the limit.

propagana machine on
doo dah doo dah

melodrama sad sad song
all the doo dah day

Alex, I'd like to take tacticle nukes for 400.


Burning puppy sure smells good, kinda like napalm in the morning, only without the surfing...
2001-10-02 01:30:12 PM  
Tastes like chicken.
2001-10-02 01:34:17 PM  
I have to wonder about this one too. I imagine parts of this are true or at least based on truth, but after the BS about the babies in Kuwait and the thousands masacred in Yugoslavia that turned out to be exagerations or outright lies you gotta wonder. There are plenty of reasons to wipe out the Taliban and give the people of Afghanistan a chance at a future that is better than the people of Cambodia. The truth or lack of truth of this story doesn't change anything.

"Taliban C-Rations"
2001-10-02 01:44:35 PM  

A few years ago, I spent a month in Nepal. The Nepalis are the coolest people I've ever met. They are good-humored, pleasant, and generous. Recent reports have stated that the Afghanis are similar to the Nepalis. I'm sure this has changed in light of the Taliban's religious enforcement and the ravages of war.

Anyway, the strange thing about the Nepalis is this: for all of their intrinsic coolness, they didn't like dogs. Kids would kick them in the streets. I wonder if dogs just aren't... respected in Asia as they are in the west.

2001-10-02 01:50:19 PM  
Ahhhhh Ua, in Korea they eat them. Guess they don't have a lot of respect for them.
2001-10-02 01:51:18 PM  
Propaganda. It's getting thick. and who is "The Daily Telegraph" anyway?

Traditionally, this sort of thing is thrown around before an attack. It makes it Morally OK to do the killing. Massive peace demonstrations here would strengthen the enemy's resolve, and this is part of an attempt to discourage the peace movement here at home. I take this as a sign that a large can 'o whoop-ass is being prepared for the Taliban, somewhere in the bowels of the US military establishment.... Heh heh heh.

That dog, he has no tail. Oh, and "Boobies".
2001-10-02 01:52:04 PM  
Sympathetic magic is very un-Islamic. Shame on you hypocritical Taliban! (Sorry for the reduncancy.)
2001-10-02 02:13:23 PM  
Oh wait, I'll bet playing in the background was...


Seriously, as farked up as the Taleban is, this sounds a bitl ike far-fethced propaganda.
2001-10-02 02:13:51 PM  
It's true that in eastern cultures dogs are considered a lower lifeform and ignoble creatures. A dog is considered to have no dignity, no pride, no principle. A chinese phrase for "traitor" is "running dog". People don't really hate them, but they certainly don't respect them. The burning of dogs here isn't about intimidation, it's about marale boosting. The message isn't "Oh, we're gonna burn your dogs", that wouldn't make any sense; the message is "These people (the people whose names they wrote on the dogs) are cowards and when we get them, we'll burn them like the dogs that they are."

Hope that helps.
2001-10-02 02:21:58 PM  
I believe it, after reading the article in the NY times about six weeks ago about how the Taleban were cracking down on dog owners... apparently dogs are ritually unclean or something. The poonie-licking probably has something to do with it. If the times didn't charge for access to it's archives, i'd post a link.. anyone remember it? It was between 8-24-01 and 9-7-01, I believe.
2001-10-02 02:42:09 PM  
Oh please! Kill no more of the puppies!

We give up, you darned evil peoples!

Somebody needs to name a pig Osama and kill and eat it (if it hasn't already been done).
2001-10-02 02:53:35 PM  
That's it! No more waiting. Let's do this for Snoopy, Scoobie, Lassie, and Lady and the Tramp.
2001-10-02 02:54:58 PM  
This just in: 101 Dalmations have broken diplomatic ties with the Taliban.
2001-10-02 03:29:04 PM  
Ahh I kinda like hearing about the general insanity that has been brought on by the taliban not knowing when the bombs will start dropping sounds like in their preperations they are only further aleinating the people.. Ahhh couple mill to the northern alliance and they shoudl fall nicely. Few well placed bombs and spec ops teams woudl help too
2001-10-02 04:09:02 PM  
Regarding the rest of the story... does anyone see a problem with "enlisting" an army of people who don't want to be there, and give them guns? If I were one of them, I'd find it mighty tempting to fire "the wrong way" when the time comes.
2001-10-02 04:17:23 PM  
Imagine what they're tellin' those 'enlistees' about us.
2001-10-02 04:31:18 PM  
And the village ate like kings!!!
