That's right, anybody we don't is now a terrorist.
Pigs are horse. Girls are boys. War is peace. Terrorists are freedom fighters.
2001-10-23 12:09:33 AM  
of all the many places that thing was posted, the Nation Enquirer gets it? Simpathy pic?
2001-10-23 12:11:18 AM  
Burn, baby, Burn.
2001-10-23 12:11:21 AM  
hey crackpipe, I guess you read that farked up article too huh? What a load of bullshiat.

Let me guess, the person who posted this also is the one who made it. Can't think of any other reason for the "funniest ever" headline except head trauma or drug abuse.
2001-10-23 12:16:19 AM  
I really typed "best ever" but my stupid keyboard made it funniest ever, I hate microsoft crap.
2001-10-23 12:16:55 AM  
I've burned an American flag before....I am not a terrorist.

Bush Sr. Apologizes To Son For Funding Bin Laden In '80s
MIDLAND, TX- Former president George Bush issued an apology to his son Monday for advocating the CIA's mid-'80s funding of Osama bin Laden, who at the time was resisting the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. "I'm sorry, son," Bush told President George W. Bush. "We thought it was a good idea at the time because he was part of a group fighting communism in Central Asia. We called them 'freedom fighters' back then. I know it sounds weird. You sort of had to be there." Bush is still deliberating over whether to tell his son about the whole supporting-Saddam Hussein-against-Iran thing."

Worst... "priceless"... ever

How is this man a terrorist???

and what's with the w!!
at the bottom right?
2001-10-23 12:19:49 AM  
I don't mind the burning of the US flag. If you want to burn the flag, go ahead. However, IF you are wearing a turban and sporting a bushy beard at the time, you may suck Uncle Sam's balls.

Let's stop bombing these idiots and let them burn/starve themselves to death.
2001-10-23 12:20:28 AM  
It's funny because someone got burned. It's always funny when somebody burns.

Also, it helps people feel better about their own losses when they see other people who have different opinions burn.
2001-10-23 12:22:47 AM  
Rival: Let's stop bombing these idiots and let them burn/starve themselves to death.

Who is "them"?
2001-10-23 12:25:28 AM  
Mindrape - What, you can't see them? I dunno man...ever since I found these sunglasses I see them everywhere.
2001-10-23 12:25:52 AM  
Mindrape - I can only assume he has no idea whatsoever. One would assume this photo was from a Pakistani demonstration, no?
2001-10-23 12:29:00 AM  
See like, he was lighting the flag on fire, right? But he caught himself on fire in the process! What a marooooon!!
2001-10-23 12:30:32 AM  
Rival, I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's easy to say "them" when you're refering to some vague group of people on the other end of the planet. But keep in mind that not all people "wearing a turban and sporting a bushy beard" are terrorists. Not all of "them" had anything to do with recent events. If you're saying let all the people who are *responsible for causing death* starve, then I agree. But don't say "let them starve" when the people who are in danger of starving have nothing to do with any attacks.
2001-10-23 12:31:25 AM  
"Priceless" parodies' 15 minutes of fame were over a half hour ago...
2001-10-23 12:33:47 AM  
The trouble here, Mindrape, is that it is not always easy to determine THEM from the rest of the people living over there. Perhaps the only solution is to remove the jagged thorn in our side, the people on the other end of the planet, completely.

I wouldn't be against that action if it meant the Western world would be free of Middle Eastern terrorists, would you?
2001-10-23 12:37:29 AM  
I thought the all-time best "Priceless" was supposed to be the Jena Jameson silhouette / DeBeers one.
2001-10-23 12:41:09 AM  
I doubt you would be so eager to nuke if you had relatives over there. What if your parents lived there? Would you still want to annihilate it? It's easy to dehumanize people when you don't know any of them.

(Remember the Holocaust?)
2001-10-23 12:44:21 AM  
Plus, Rival-Troll, it's a matter of perspective. I suppose those over "there" would consider the US an extremely painful thorn in their side; and by your logic would be completely justified in nuking the US in order to relieve themselves of this irritation.

You wouldn't be against that if it meant the Middle East were free from Western Capitalist Pig-Dogs would you?
2001-10-23 12:45:23 AM  
It is circular to destroy thousands of innocent people so we could be "free of Middle Eastern terrorists."

Isn't that what the terrorists did when they attacked the WTC? That is-- killed thousands of innocent Americans to be free of American oppression?

Why is it terrorism when they do it, but reasonable when we do it? (Don't say because "they started it" because we once again get into the "they" problem)
2001-10-23 12:46:42 AM  
The Holocaust is entirely different. I don't recall the jews toppling any German skyscrappers full of people.

My main fear, is that this is culture class will topple society. How many terrorist attacks can the Western world handle before we begin to collapse inward? What happens if we take a mis-step in this "war" and lose the advantage? Do you really want to risk the society it has taken hundreds of years to construct because you feel empathic towards a group of poverity ridden countries that are riddled with terrorists?

Perhaps, just this one time, there really is a greater good.
2001-10-23 12:47:52 AM  
Blah...culture clash. Tis late.
2001-10-23 12:48:36 AM  
Darwin always wins out.
2001-10-23 12:51:00 AM  
Let us put aside our petty differences, and giggle at the funny man who lit himself on fire.


2001-10-23 12:56:15 AM  
Sounds like Rival has a modest proposal, if anybody catches my meaning.

And yeah, its pretty funny when an idiot botches the statement they're tring to make. Lets hope we're the ones still laughing at the conclusion of all of this.
2001-10-23 12:59:13 AM  
If you're saying I have a small wang, I'm hurt. For starters, my nick is gender nuetral. I could very well be a chick, you pig.

Then again, I could be reading your statement completely wrong.
2001-10-23 12:59:48 AM  
"Riddled with terrorists" ?

What are you basing that on? As far as I know, bin Laden and his clan are the only ones. Maybe you could count the Taliban, but they didn't do anything besides harbor a possible war criminal.

At any rate, did you know that the U.S. has committed quite a few atrocities as well? I know Bush cited that we were attacked because the terrorists were jealous of our freedom, but anyone with half a brain should know that that is not a good reason to attack another county. You might want to learn what the U.S. has been up to in terms of killing. Take a look-- we're not as clean as we all would like to think. There's a reason why a lot of countries hate the U.S.

(And just for the record, I'm not supporting terrorists. Innocent death should always be condemned.)
2001-10-23 01:05:20 AM  
It's funny cause it's not me!
2001-10-23 01:06:25 AM  
Ummm. Guys, this was supposed to be a 'funny'.
Could it be that you are getting just a little too fargin serious?
2001-10-23 01:11:53 AM  
Let's just clear things up. NO COUNTRY is clear of misdoing. It's been done by the best and the worst. The point I was trying to make was, I don't want to see the US and it's allies bungle this job. If the only solution, the only path that lead to victory was the complete and ruthless destruction of the Middle East, it would be the right thing to do. I, for one, value the rights that generations of westerners have struggled to bestow upon us.

Those of us lucky enough to be born in the Western world, live extremely good lives. So good infact, we can argue the destruction of another way of life, from our homes that are mostly likely hundreds of miles apart. I, simply, do not want to lose this gift because of foriegn terrorists. Their ancestors did NOT work hard at creating a better society for their people. They followed their religous morals straight into their crappy situation.

Now, when it's obvious to them that OUR way of life, OUR society has grown to dominate the world, they become jealous. They may hide this jealousy behind any number of reasons, but they simply don't like that their lifestyle is not the forerunner in world politics.

Do we sit back and let these people, whether they be the minority or majority, destroy our way of life? We have the ability to save countless American/European lives by ending this carnage now. If we sit idley by until our society is crumbled by diseases and bombings, it'll be too late to save what we cherish most.

Simply, let's put us ahead of (the dreaded, much debated) them.
2001-10-23 01:12:30 AM  
Nanook (etc.) - it aint funny, thats the problem. It's crap.
2001-10-23 01:16:17 AM  
I'll give you that, Basil.
Further, the Mosqueda article has valid perspective.
I'm just making whiney noises about the crumbling of the "It's not news, it's" venue.
2001-10-23 01:17:27 AM  
Rival - what an incredibly arrogant statement. They're not jealous of your way of life, there pissed off at you continually meddling with theirs.

Remember - US dominance will eventually fade, as English dominance did before it. And Rome before that. etc. etc. etc.
2001-10-23 01:19:25 AM  
Wouldn't even make my Top 20 list.
2001-10-23 01:21:04 AM  
There ya go Basil you got it. If the damn thing had been funny we would have laughed, most Farkers can take a joke. Since it wasn't funny everyone seems to be trying to make a political statement out of it.

2001-10-23 01:22:40 AM  
Nanookanano - always enjoyed a good mix of intelligent comment and humour but it seems that the two are mutually exclusive on alot of threads nowadays.

I always liked the religion debates that went on with Squatch and Christian Conservative et al
2001-10-23 01:23:16 AM  
Basil - We'd gladly stay out of their lives if they could get by without constant war and starvation. Christ, these backwater nations have nukes now, their business is our business. I certainly don't want to wake up one day and find the atmosphere radioactive because General Pakistan Franco decided to nuke India. It all relates back to saving ourselves.
2001-10-23 01:26:37 AM  
Rival: I, for one, value the rights that generations of westerners have struggled to bestow upon us.

The only reason the United States is here right now is because Westerners stole this land and murdered its Native American residents. Furthermore, there is absolutely nothing about Western society that makes it superior to any other. Your bias clearly stems from the fact that you live here.
2001-10-23 01:26:40 AM  
Sometimes the answer to a multiple choice question is "yes".
2001-10-23 01:29:39 AM  
Christ, stop being so PC. It's not a BIAS, it's a truth. Would you like to live in a happy dirt hut from now on? Me either.

And let's not start about the damn Indians. Who really gives a fark at this point? The five Indians still left are happy casino owners at this point. Let's let hundred year old injustices alone.
2001-10-23 01:31:11 AM  
Rival - I would agree with you if it hadn't been for the past 55 years of navel gazing the Western world has gone through. The world is no longer allowed to go through the usual merging (conquering) of the weak by the strong - because the Western world has not allowed it. ANd the western world has created states such as Israel and Palestine that are inflaming the situation over in the Middle East. So alot of the situation is borne from our meddling.

So what I am saying is, since you made the bed, its time to sleep in it - Ethnic Cleansing is not a realistic option.

Illuminix - top puppies photo.
2001-10-23 01:32:19 AM  
Rival: We'd gladly stay out of their lives if they could get by without constant war and starvation.

The only reason we bother with the Middle East is because we want their oil!
2001-10-23 01:35:49 AM  
Back to the important business at hand:
Just what is the greatest 'Priceless advertisement' ever made?
2001-10-23 01:36:34 AM  
- Ethnic Cleansing is not a realistic option.

No, it's probably not. However, Ethnic re-education may be. I see very few roadblocks to Nato bombing nearly all Middle Eastern countries in the war against terror. Once we destroy their government, we put in a fresh one that is a touch more user friendly.

The only reason we bother with the Middle East is because we want their oil!

Admittedly, we likes our oil.
2001-10-23 01:37:02 AM  
I say it is the Jena/DeBeers one.
(Very Much NSFW)
All in favor say 'Aye'.
2001-10-23 01:43:37 AM  
Rival, I don't necessarily oppose taking over hostile governments if they are killing and harming people-- but don't kill the people who are suffering under them! That's hopelessly pointless and counterproductive. Ya?

Anyways, I think our conversation is starting to annoy others so I shall cease at this point. But Rival, allow me to thank you for being civil (except for the part about nuking). A lot of farkers act like assholes if you try to have a decent argument with them. They get all biatchy and defensive and resort to childish name-calling and sarcasm. But you didn't. Cheers to that.
2001-10-23 01:45:55 AM  
Innocent death is bad, agreed. Just saying it'd be better them than us.

Twas fun...I put a curse on all the fools who did not enjoy are ruff and tumble arguement. I double that curse on the grounds that I must now complete my lab assignment.


PS - I liked the nuking part.
2001-10-23 01:51:26 AM  
Nanook etc - I always liked the original where the father took his son to the baseball. So as to be seen to be "local" when they screened the ad here (in Australia) they subbed in a cricket ball, references to cricket, and a cricket player hitting the ball, instead of baseball. Everything looked superimposed and it was really shiathouse.

Rival - Installing puppet leaders isnt the solution. It angers other nations and angers the people within the puppet state, leading to further terrorism. You have to address the root cause of it all, which is Western handling of Middle East issues. This thing isnt confined to the Middle East remember - Moslems are everywhere and getting increasingly pissed off. Bomb the Middle East and you make enemies of people in India, Pakistan and Indonesia as well.
2001-10-23 01:54:16 AM  
Once we have kicked Taliban azz, we owe it to our own self respect to send every serious Muslim scholor from the world over into Afghanistan to educate the people and help them rebuild their country and their government.
2001-10-23 01:54:51 AM  
Real quick

--Puppet leaders can be placed anywhere. If a nation acts up, install some puppets. Western policies toward the Middle East are plenty valid, we have to keep them inline for the good of the planet. As far as the muslem community goes, they can either shape up or ship out.

Anyway, that entire paragraph was really poorly thought out. Any true solution involves a hardline, take no prisioners action, at least I think so.

I'm out of here...g'night all.
2001-10-23 01:54:55 AM  
And, for God's sake, keep the Christians out of there!
2001-10-23 01:54:57 AM  
Look, how about this...

We're all bastards...

We've all done bad stuff in our lives...

So lets just kill ourselves? :)

See? Easiest solution..

You first.
2001-10-23 01:57:29 AM  
You can't put a price on brains like that demonstrated. I guess he is just trying to look into his future!


...stupid clownboat
2001-10-23 02:00:22 AM  
I say we figure out who submitted the article and nuke them. That way the world really would be a better place.
2001-10-23 02:02:21 AM  
Quoting Rival, "Puppet leaders can be placed anywhere. If a nation acts up, install some puppets."

Now read that sentence again, but replace "puppet" with "puppy"!!
2001-10-23 02:09:57 AM  
All political shiat aside, is there anyone that didn't get this in their email like 2 weeks ago? It's passed around more than a drunk sorority girl.
2001-10-23 02:15:44 AM  
Yes. But I did enjoy the sorority girl
2001-10-23 02:23:46 AM  
All I have to say is that I hope that the people that are arguing against Rival dont consider themselves Americans, because you sure as hell arent acting like ones!
2001-10-23 02:29:00 AM  
SirJH - nope, I certainly don't consider myself American; but I wasn't aware that it was a condition of US citizenship that you had to agree with everything your government does and that you had to be utterly arrogant and insular.

2001-10-23 02:34:44 AM  
Stevie - big fella, that shiat dont cut it no more.
Anyhoo, I wouldn't have thought you'd find any terrorist lovers on fark...
2001-10-23 02:35:03 AM  
Actually, no, thats not a condition of US citizenship. But, we also have to remember that we are the people who put our government into power, so we are, essentially, the ones responsible for thier actions. Yes, I'm sure there is some plausible deniability there, but in the end, the American people are the ones who voted and elected our government officials. So your damn straight Im going to agree with and back my government. As far as being arrogant and insular, I would say that at least at my age, I have some clue as to what is going on. Most of the other people my age dont seem to really care about or pay attention to this war, when they really should.
2001-10-23 02:39:59 AM  
Alright, enough of this bickering. Lets all go look at some of those Southern Charms. *shudders* j/k Hmm, I can see this link making its way into the top comments section.
2001-10-23 02:40:11 AM  
SirJH - right - but Rival was talking about destroying the middle east utterly and various other actions that the US arent currently undertaking - so disagreeing with him isnt going against what the government is doing.

Anyway, I thought that having your own opinions was a basic right afforded to all citizens of democracies (or what passes for democracy, anyway. Strictly it would be an oligarchy, wouldn't it? Or a democratic-oligarchy, at best. Representative democracy. Whatever).
2001-10-23 02:40:37 AM  
Boycott Iceland!
2001-10-23 02:43:19 AM  
Basil - Whoever said we live in a perfect world where no one lies and all definitona are completely accurate?
2001-10-23 02:44:10 AM  
...and a world where I can farking type!
2001-10-23 02:47:56 AM  
All this much seriousness and clenched fists....but all I really want to know Rival a boy or a girl?! The suspense is killing me!

Oh yes, and the best internet 'priceless' is the soccor/snatch one. Especially after a farker photoshopped domo kun down there.
2001-10-23 02:50:53 AM  
Going by the comment "If your saying I have a small wang, Im hurt" I think I can safely guess that rival is male. Only a guy would have that kind of thought process to come up with a wang insult from the comment "modest proposal"
2001-10-23 02:53:21 AM  
nice. yeah. whatever. what is this thread about again?
2001-10-23 02:57:54 AM  
I don't know if someone else has already pointed this out, but..

I know the flag is symbolic to this guy and everything, and stands for hated America, but how many stars are on that flag? I count somewhere around 20-ish. Maybe he's just really against Mississippi joining the Union. You think?
2001-10-23 02:59:55 AM  
BottleSpit: I know I'm still against it.
2001-10-23 03:03:34 AM  
Hey, without Mississippi, we wouldnt have people like Bill Clinton. Oh wait, that was Arkansas. Hmm, who has come from Mississippi, do they let people out of thier state? Anyone know where Walken is from?
2001-10-23 03:08:03 AM  
HAhaha, Rival is a complete farkwit.
2001-10-23 03:10:53 AM  
God...I'm being awfully statist today, aren't I?
S'far as I know the river is the only thing that made it out of Mississippi.

Stevie: A link for terrorist loving scum

You mean like this Stevie guy, Mindrape? You'd have to be a total braindead idiot to go along with everything the gov't says just because it's the U.S. gov't. Come on. Do you support the gov't for testing atomic weapons in Utah back in the 1950's, killing god knows how many people (including John Wayne, interestingly enough-- he was filming a movie there) and causing the birth of thousands of mutant babies? AND they denied knowing about it until the late 1980's? I don't think it is at all a bad thing to question your gov't. they're doing this shiat on your behalf.
2001-10-23 05:06:51 AM  
Dr.Sodomy: Blah, lets not start this argument back up again.
2001-10-23 06:05:31 AM

We criticize them for hating us? well we're not the ones who's homes and families are being destroyed by errant american bombs.
2001-10-23 09:52:29 AM  
For all yous people complaining about how this thing called a flag-burner a terrorist: calm down. I don't think anyone (besides you) is trying to extract any kinda profound political statements from what is obviously meant to be a joke.
On a different subject, I loved what Neal Boortz had to say about this guy: "If I'd been there, I would have tried to put him out. But my bladder can only hold so much."
2001-10-23 09:53:17 AM  
"we're not the ones who's homes and families are being destroyed by errant american bombs."

No, just errant American planes.
2001-10-23 09:54:20 AM  
Besides, this happened long before the bombing campaign picked up any steam.

Really? That flag looks handmade and probably cost $1.98 in materials.
2001-10-23 10:18:41 AM  
He might just have been getting rid of the flag.
The correct method in getting rid of a dirty Stars and Stripes is to burn it, not put it in the bin or rip it up, burn it.

When an old flag is burned for disposal it is supposed to be in private and in a solemn way.

I disagree with a lot of things the government does, but the USA is still the best country in the world, and seeing people burn flags makes me sick. Sure you have the right to do it, but I should have the right to kick the shiat out of you if I see you doing it, especially now.

enough arguing already. I just want to see some b00bies!!
2001-10-23 11:02:51 AM  
"...but the USA is still the best country in the world..."

Thats a reletive term, there is no best country, because there are always people who prefer some other way of living. (and just for the record, even if there was a best country, it wouldn't be the UK).
2001-10-23 11:04:46 AM  
_relative_ term! (oops)
2001-10-23 11:08:12 AM  
It wouldn't be the US because you can't drink until you're 21.

It woudn't be the UK because you can't drink after 11pm.

I vote for Sweden. Any country that allows you to drink all night and all morning and produced Nina Persson has a lot going for it.

Oh no, hang on, Sweden has some bizarre alcohol laws as well, doesn't it? I give up. Maybe it's the Moon.

Playa hatah: "We criticize them for hating us? well we're not the ones who's homes and families are being destroyed by errant american bombs."

I really should know better than to feed a troll, but here goes.

Pull your head out of your farking ass. We're just the ones that lost thousands of our loved ones in a cowardly act of terrorism.

The US is going to great measures to avoid civilian casualties. The terrorist sought out innocent civilians as targets.

Your both forgetting that the Afghani population didn't ask for the 911 attacks (How could they, they didn't vote the Talaban in). The attacks were perpetrated by a hard-core group of anti-american people. These people are spread all over the globe so bombing Afghanistan, even if it does get Bin laden, won't stop another anti-US attack from being planned.

What bombing Afghanistan *does* do is to add to the anti-american feelings in countries like Pakistan, making it easier for terroist groups to recruit new members to its cause.

I don't this qualifies as the best Priceless ad ever. You ever see the one where the chick is limboing and she has no panties on or all those kids sitting on the bed next to the couple who "doing it"?
2001-10-23 11:44:46 AM  
definitely the Best ever.

"The attacks were perpetrated by a hard-core group of anti-american people."

Anyone who feels that for some reason we don't have a right to protect ourselves and then burns our flag when we do is anti-American to begin with.

"What bombing Afghanistan *does* do is to add to the anti-american feelings in countries like Pakistan, making it easier for terroist groups to recruit new members to its cause."

Fine. If that's the road they chose, they can all kiss my ass and suffer the fate of their evil comrades, whatever that may end up being.

I was saying that most of Afghanistan's population is no tto blame for the 911 attacks. For the same reason Britain dosn't bomb the whole of Ireland when the IRA set off a bomb in London, the US shouldn't bomb Afghanistan. It misses the real targets and feeds anti-US hatred.

"Fine. If that's the road they chose, they can all kiss my ass and suffer the fate of their evil comrades, whatever that may end up being."

Its one attitude to take but its not going to stop another attack against the US. Tackle the roots of the problems and solve them properly.

"For the same reason Britain dosn't bomb the whole of Ireland when the IRA set off a bomb in London, the US shouldn't bomb Afghanistan."

Wow. That's an awful comparison. Y'know why? Because the government of Ireland does not support and fund the IRA!!! The Taleban does support Al Queda!!! C'mon!!!

"Tackle the roots of the problems and solve them properly."

And just how are we supposed to do that without going into Afghanistan? They're in Afghaninstan, y'know.

"the US shouldn't bomb Afghanistan. It misses the real targets and feeds anti-US hatred."

Everything feeds anti-US sentiment, you should know that by now. Damned if we do, damned if we don't.
It's not like we're carpet-bombing everything in sight out there. Our strikes have been on airports, military installations, training grounds, etc. Gotta do whatcha gotta do.

that priceless is old and not even in the top 10 of the best ever.
2001-10-23 01:58:21 PM  
I worked in the newly-opened, state-of-the-arts burn center at Western Pennsylvania Hospital for a few weeks. Skin burns are horrible; the patient is in constant agony. It is truly a horrific experience.

But I still grin like a friggin' idiot every time I see this diaperhead torching his dumb ass while destroying Ol' Glory.

It's called poetic justice.

As I understand it, the dipshiat survived the ordeal, but the medical facilities in that pesthole of a nation are not equipped to treat the dude properly. A .45 slug in his noggin might do the trick, but they're saving their ammo to kill us infidel Yankees.

Somebody hit the nail squarely on the head earlier: "Burn, baby, burn!"

(My apologies to the original submitter of that line.)

[On second thought, I scrolled up. It was Rival's line. Thanks, dude!]

The ironic thing about this being the best ever is that all priceless ads suck my shiat.
2001-10-23 02:38:48 PM  
Hey Groucho2 and other like(un)minded individuals. Why would you call this guy a "diaper-head" when he does not wear a turban? In fact why would you use such a derogatory term at all; me-thinks that you would be the kind of person to call someone with darker skin then yours N****R.

(*Groucho2 and Rival don capes*): "String 'em up boys!"
2001-10-23 03:12:22 PM  

That thing has been circling the chain letter e-mails for atleast 2 WEEKS OLD...

Frankly, I'm sick of this terrorist bashing all together...
2001-10-23 03:12:48 PM  
T_W(?)_O.... I called the towelhead a "diaperhead," not a "diaper-head" as you misquoted me. Get it right, doo-doo head...or do not "doo doo" it at all. When you stupid little douche bags misspell and misquote, you lose credibility--if you even had any to start with.

But you *are* goddam right about one thing.... I *would* string up that fuggin' sonofabiatch for torching my flag. But the flames--HIS flames--punished him enough. He's probably dead now anyway.

Finally, dumbass...your lame reference to "capes" is FARKed. I think you meant "robes" if it were a KKK reference. Which are YOU? A towelhead or a diaperhead...or just another pimple-faced shiathead?

And learn how to punctuate, bozo!

Oh, yes.... "Methinks" is one word--not hyphenated. You really are an imbecile! (But only homos use words like that, so go suck a carrot and calm down!)
2001-10-23 03:47:23 PM  
groucho2- way to look like a even bigger dumbass than before by stepping around the real issue by babbling over spelling and punctuation. oh shiat! i hope i didnt lose credibility with spelling errors

"Wow. That's an awful comparison. Y'know why? Because the government of Ireland does not support and fund the IRA!!!"

True, but there are American group that DO support the IRA, can we bomb them? OK a few bombs might miss and hit a hospital, but then you're all evil IRA supporters right, after all theres a few people in America that support the IRA so you must all be bad! Not to mention that only this year the US gave the evil Afghani ruling Talaban millions of dollars in support. My god! Uncle Sam is a sick and evil person! [/sarcasam]

"And just how are we supposed to do that without going into Afghanistan? They're in Afghaninstan, y'know.

Some of them are in Afghanistan, some more are in Pakistan, some more in other countries, a few are still in the US itself. You could kill every living thing in Afghanistan, you'd still get a terroist attack withing ten years time from the same/related groups, except this time there would be an extra cause for its supporters.

"Everything feeds anti-US sentiment, you should know that by now. Damned if we do, damned if we don't."

Partly true, anti-US people aren't going to disappear over night. But do you really want to help them win over new converts to their cause?

Bollox! Where did the bold tag come from >:(
2001-10-23 04:35:00 PM  
Okay Blumf. What do we do. Just sit here? Not retaliate in any way for the bloodiest day in American history? We'll probably be attacked again, but at least it'll be for the same old causes.
Besides, it seems like lately they've been losing a helluva lot more members than they've been gaining.
2001-10-23 04:42:20 PM  
I have film of a friend who burned a flag several years ago on the 4th of July. Too bad he didn't think the plan out to its logical conclusion: burning plastic flag leads to melted slag all over hand and much jumping about. Never fails to make me laugh to think of it.
2001-10-23 04:43:09 PM  
I'd say let the special forces deal with it. Quietly and decisivly, there would only be rumors then, no news footage of blown up grain stores and UN aid buildings. Makes it harder to stand up and say "look at the American bad guys killing innocents".

Also give the CIA/FBI/NSA/MI5/MI6 guys a very big kick up the arse, they've been relying on electronic surveillance too much and missed out on this.

Saulusa: Umm, right. They choose planes that had the fewest possible people. The pentagon, its military. White house, a supposed target, was military/government. Hell, wtc counts for economic, but that was full of civilians.

For a small group of people, using what they can, they could have done more. I'm pretty sure they didn't quite have the largest civilian casualty rate in mind. They had goals one could say, perhaps akin to america's in invading afghanistan. Just didn't have an army or such to complete them, so had to use a horrible way to get it done.
2001-10-23 11:25:04 PM  
Wait... some of you people are DEFENDING the terrorists who flew airplanes into buildings on September 11?

Please tell me I just misread all that.

Sheesh.. we're supposed to be making fun of nutjobs, not acting like them. Now laugh at the flaming guy, dangit!
2001-10-23 11:40:24 PM  
No, not at all. I just disagree with the statement that "The terrorist sought out innocent civilians as targets."
2001-10-24 06:23:36 PM  
"For a small group of people, using what they can, they could have done more. I'm pretty sure they didn't quite have the largest civilian casualty rate in mind."

First of all, there was no way they could've told how many people were going to be on those flights, so there goes your "they chose the flights with the fewest passengers." Secondly, if they hadn't wanted to take so many people out in the WTC, they would have done it at 2am instead of 9am. Third, I can't think of many other targets that would've taken out as many people in the country as towers 1 and 2 of the WTC.
C'mon, get a grip on things. If they just wanted this to be a destructive as-little-loss-as-human-life-possible kinda thing, they would've jammed a plane into the Statue of Liberty.
