Yeah, mmmmm. I'm going to have to say this is how a silly nation acts when it really doesn't want to get rid of terrorists, but would rather use terrorism as an excuse to gain control over its citizenry.

See NSA, Patriot act, TSA, USA USA USA Etc Etc.

If you wanted to, you could go out and kill all of them and sleep soundly.
But you won't.
You'll use it as an excuse to spread fear to gain power.
Which is what terrorism is.
Government involvement in private lives and businesses.

Was that a TV commercial or a TV show? Holy crap that was long. Two and a half minutes for a commercial?

Abla Fahita?  If you say it slow you're speaking spanish and it translates to 'he/she/it speaks fajita'. It's a ploy to make me throw away my pinche diet lunch and go raid the damn taco truck outside. Pinche mamon!

If I had to put up with annoying and long commercials like that, I'd probably want to blow something up (Vodafone HQ, in this case)

Right because no one is complaining about the use of drones to do exactly that.

Have you considered, that maybe the government isn't behind all terrorist killings in some insane conspiracy? And that, just maybe, things like TSA and the Patroit act are simply overreactions to new and evolving threats?

Nah, that's just too simple.

Interesting. Fark will let you copy and paste Armenian, Yiddish, Byelorussian, Khmer and Hindi...but not Arabic.

And of course about halfway thru the video, my Moto X voice control activated for no reason.

Interesting. Just out of curiosity I went back to Google Translate to see if my translations made any sense. The original English was "Breathes there a man with soul so dead who has not to his own wife said, to hell with breakfast get back in bed." The Yiddish translated back to "Breathes there a man with soul so dead who did not to his own wife said to hell with breakfast in bed get back."

So nu?

I think it's so the NSA doesn't catch it and start monitoring all you deviants here.

Drew's just trying to protect you.
