The No Spine Zone on the O'Really Factor made me laugh.
 
2010-10-28 04:27:58 PM  
I like it!
 
2010-10-28 05:02:55 PM  
I like this as well.
 
2010-10-28 05:13:25 PM  
That was oddly intriguing. The first guy, who comes back at the end, was by far the best rapper.

good job

I hate when people have opinions and care about stuff. I really do.

OK, the number of casualties from the Iraq War is nowhere near a million, but these lines are telling to the power of spin:

"The number of people in the Middle East opposed to democracy has swiftly decreased."
"Ya, by a million at least, since 2003."
"That's a million more people who are blissfully in peace!"

Only a million over 7 years? clearly our military is unfunded.

Again, nowhere near a million. Iraqi casualties are around 100,000, give or take. That's a measly 15,000 per year... ;)

any guesses on whether it was a TFer or a Mod that was the only reason this shiat got gren lit?

Entertaining but not as good as Australian rap group The Herd's similar 2020.

You make a no sense. And gren lit? Sounds contagious.

This coming from someone who says "make a no sense".

American accent error when they tried to say "military".

Afghans are the people of Afghanistan. "Afghanis" are their form of currency.

I found myself bobbing my head like this was Wu-Tang spittin' some wisdom.

Other than that, this sucked.

I thought Afghans were a type of blanket.

FAKE! That is what we are supposed to say, right?

Liked it!
 
2010-10-28 08:13:33 PM  
Well done. I did not need the O'reily death scene, but the rapping was decent.
 
2010-10-28 08:40:36 PM  
Fumbs up. I usually hate this kind of stuff, but this one was good.
 
2010-10-28 09:27:22 PM  
Clever.

they misspelled 'pharaoh'

Lame dodge. So you're not going to explain it?
 
2010-10-28 11:09:31 PM  
...but according to WikiLeak'd info there WERE WMD's found in Iraq. (I am so confused now!)
 
2010-10-28 11:10:26 PM  
If I have learned anything on Fark, it's that the rigged elections of 2000, the 9/11 attacks, the creation of Fox News, and our decade-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are all transparent and completely unrelated to each other. Thank you for the education, Fark.
 
2010-10-28 11:48:33 PM  
That.
Was.
Awesome.

But they always emphasized that there would be no body counts. So upon what is that based?

Kitty Shat Down: the number of casualties from the Iraq War is nowhere near a million

On Friday, 14 September 2007, ORB (Opinion Research Business), an independent polling agency located in London, published estimates of the total war casualties in Iraq since the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.[1] At over 1.2 million deaths (1,220,580), this estimate is the highest number published so far. From the poll margin of error of +/-2.5% ORB calculated a range of 733,158 to 1,446,063 deaths. The ORB estimate was performed by a random survey of 1,720 adults aged 18+, out of which 1,499 responded, in fifteen of the eighteen governorates within Iraq, between August 12 and August 19, 2007.[2][3] In comparison, the 2006 Lancet survey suggested almost half this number (654,965 deaths) through the end of June 2006. The Lancet authors calculated a range of 392,979 to 942,636 deaths.

On 28 January 2008, ORB published an update based on additional work carried out in rural areas of Iraq. Some 600 additional interviews were undertaken September 20 to 24, 2007. As a result of this the death estimate was revised to 1,033,000 with a given range of 946,000 to 1,120,000.[4][5]

The recently released wiki leaks documents put the number at 109,032
Iraq Body count has it at 95,585-107,594

Maybe it's just me, but it seems that asking people their opinion of how many people have died is not an accurate way to estimate the number of actual dead.
 
2010-10-29 06:54:44 AM  
Was Julian Assange doing the Jedi mind trick?
 
2010-10-29 09:37:56 AM  
Julian Assange is a badass

Headso: Julian Assange is a badass

I respectfully disagree.

Have a nice day.

I totally smell what you're steppin' in. They were alive, and they'll be dead forever. Crazy.

That's 1000.000 KIA in the wikileaks docs... not the 1.000.000 total deaths including crime and lack of health and other infrastructure which could be attributed to the invasion or the embargo or the meddling during occupation.
Of course there's a bias to report any dead as related to the invasion but at least you could compare deaths before and after and see if the situation got worse or not.
Hence 1 million of which 100.000 kia.
