I don't think this should be broadcast....Let some of Osama's people play with the yellow cylinders. If they are in a different area, perhaps we could get a few more just because of thier ignorance!

"US psychological operations (Psy-ops) radio broadcast a message seeking to reassure the Afghan people that the possibility of confusing the two was minimal, as bombs and food parcels were not being dropped in the same areas and most bombs would explode on impact with the ground. "

NO! Really?

This is US Psy-ops?

This is like a giant-scale Fisher Price toy where you stick the rectangular shapes and the cylinders in the right holes.

I would pay $1000 to watch an Afghani try to open up a cluster bomb with a knife and fork.

All bombs will explode when they hit the ground...some of the bombs will not explode

dont be so ignorant and don't trivialize other peoples tragedy.
This is the cluster sub-munitions they are talking about.

at about 100 ft or so it still looks yellow and at that distance your not close enough to distinguish the shape, especially if your view is partially blocked and if your starving.

They are making these announcements via radio. Good thinking. Hope one of the 3 or 4 radios still in existance are turned to something than "Yo, Taliban raps".

When people try to eat bombs what results is called "Natural Selection". It is the process by which species not so well suited for survival and in this case "Stupid Farkers" get off the planet and make way for those of us who know not to bite down on C-4.
2001-10-29 02:45:44 PM  
um. sense of humor?
I'm trivializing nothing, just making a wonderfully misguided attempt at humor for the enjoyment of the other farkers.
Thanks for finding that pic of the cluster bomb, I couldn't find one in a short enough amount of time to make my picture, I'll see if I can't get a more accurate one made. And yes, i did know what they looked like, and why it was relevant.
Give me a few minutes to come up with something more suitable for you.
2001-10-29 02:48:01 PM  
Assming people can read well enough to understand that it is an explosive canister they're opening, which they can't because

1. They're starving
2. The writing is in English
3. Most Afghan refugees can barely read Arabic

They are also dropping hand cranked radios which will run 45 minutes on 30 seconds of cranking.

Don sweat the petty thing, and don't pet the sweaty things.
