MaudlinMutantMollusk: You wanna tell those guys they're not getting paid?


Pay for active-duty military's been authorized.

I would guess these guys are active, man.

Mentat: Unfortunately, the suspect tripped and fell on a pile of bullets which embedded themselves in the back of his skull.


I prefer that they be friendlier. You know, take him for an airplane ride.  Give him flying lessons over the atlantic. You know, push him out, and if he can figure out how to fly before he hits the ground, its all good.

killing is only righteous when 'Murika does it.  Otherwise, it's terrorism.

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: From the BBC article it sounds like the US has been using drones there for a while as well.




"We hope that this makes clear that the United States of America will never stop in its effort to hold those accountable who conduct acts of terror."

I wonder when we will be held accountable.

What farking High School is that? These girls display a jutting protuberance rarely found in groups of 3.




Nah, 30 year olds.

So the whole government shutdown was a ruse to get these guys to let their guard down right?

Flatulent_Flea: Snapper Carr: SilentStrider: I'm sure Fox will try to spin this aa Obama being weak.
And I will laugh.

Obama didn't swim to Somalia, track the guy down, wrestle him to the ground, decapitate him with a dull butter knife and sodomize the neck hole while screaming "THIS IS WHAT YOU GET, MOTHERfarkER!"


Wait, has anybody seen Obama since Friday night?


Check the golf course.
 
2013-10-06 09:44:04 AM  
Obama sure likes to have people killed.
 
2013-10-06 09:49:19 AM  
Anas al Libi was a huge target. He was in the leadership council of the "original" Al Qaeda, and IIRC, was their Libya commander or leader.

I am shocked they announced his capture so early, when he likely has a ton of intelligence to give up after "interrogation".


I am guessing they got another big fish in Somalia as well, which is why they aren't saying what happened.

AverageAmericanGuy: Obama sure likes to have people killed.


If Bush had done that, we could have avoided two wars and not blown the budget all to hell.

Yeah, that's all I'm ever to see, too.  And why is that girl crying?  A cute girl in high school with tits like that would have been quite popular.

Thankfully they're not U.S. military or U.S. civilians.

Source. Must have source. Oh, there it is ... an American official told NBC ... so you know whatever happened,  if anything happened this article is bullsh*t of the usual order from this Administration. There was no raid. No American military were involved. The whole thing is made up.

Were you there? Did you see it for yourself?

"Good morning," Jay carney lied.
 
2013-10-06 12:00:21 PM  
I don't know why Republicans would be upset, since I'm pretty sure that Anas al Libi means "Anus, the Liberal." This raid is just more Democratic infighting.

I always get a laugh out of that picture too. The crying girl is stacked and pretty attractive, what the hell do the broads in the background have to say about her? At least try for realism by making the crying girl a fatty or something.

And when he attempted to take action the GOP screamed "Wag the dog."

Face it, Mr. "Clonton" was not the most popular person of the pseudo-conservatives.

2wolves: Expect "Wag the dog" cries from the TEA Party toddlers.


It's slowly dawned on me over the years of reading Fark political threads that lefties must stage vast plays in their heads with entire armies of straw men actors. That's the only explanation for the differences between observed reality and what they post.

Mateorabi: Oldiron_79: Fun fact, once upon a time some people where debating the pirate vs ninja thing , then the "why not both" girl popped in and bam the seals where created.

Pirate Ninjas have nothing on Zombie Robots.  http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/122522/smash-up

/Wizard Dinosaurs aren't shabby either


How does Zombie Robots work? I mean if you aren't alive how do you become undead?

Now wizard dinosaurs, well if magic existed why would dinos be unable to use it?

Actually Seals failed in Somalia, Delta Force was the force in Libya that was successful.

Crap.

RanDomino: Especially if the point was to weaken al-Shabaab, since now they get to go around calling themselves the group that beat the Americans.


Looks like we've given them a new recruiting tool.
