Well, at least it's not an exclusive club. boobies.
2001-12-12 10:45:16 AM  
he should be tar'd and feathered on national tv
2001-12-12 10:45:23 AM  
A terrorist is a terrorist. Dont care if they're from Austrailia or Yemen or Kansas City.
2001-12-12 10:46:13 AM  
Who knew the Taliban was so inclusive?
2001-12-12 10:48:38 AM  
They certainly seem to have been an equal opportunity employer (well apart from the hating all women thing)
2001-12-12 10:48:56 AM  
good news for harmonia.
2001-12-12 10:55:20 AM  
Put a hook thru 'em and use as Great White Shark bait.
Film it and let's see it on Wide World of Sports.
2001-12-12 10:56:04 AM  
And put it on slayers site
2001-12-12 10:56:17 AM  
He's South figures.
2001-12-12 10:56:23 AM  

This is your chance to sign up and do something with your life!!! You can turn all that US hate into something tangible. Go, the Taliban will accept you. Go I say! For the good of the world!
2001-12-12 10:56:25 AM  
Well now that guy from the US can have a buddy to play with in jail. Checkers or something. Of course, that's when guys like Bubba and Big Steve are done playing with them for the day.
2001-12-12 10:59:04 AM  
So would Australia consider this treasonous?
2001-12-12 10:59:12 AM  
This Aussie and home-grown Walker should be left to the tender mercies of the Afghan government.
Interim prime minister Hamid Karzai has stated that "the foreigners who are here are terrorists, and their hands are soiled with the blood of the people of Afghanistan."
These two are foreigners that were voluntarily and actively engaged in a theocratic dictatorship that oppressed and murdered Afghanis. Let the Afghanis have them.
2001-12-12 11:02:22 AM  
Overpaid Slacker,

No. Let the Afghanis have the Australian. Save the American for the New Yorkers. Throw him to the mob.
2001-12-12 11:06:08 AM  
Poor Fb bot v2.1 he is repeating himself again.

perhaps he needs to be rebooted.

Its easy to spot when it becopmes unstable, multiple exclamation marks.
2001-12-12 11:09:34 AM  

Why are you afraid to go? Are your ideals not important enough to stand up for, or are you just a coward?

The resistance movement needs your help and you leave them to be slaughtered by the Americans. That is sad to turn your back on your terrorist friends.
2001-12-12 11:13:41 AM  
I hope they ask this guy about the supposed Phase II attack due in the U.S. after Sunday. It'd be interesting to hear what he says.
2001-12-12 11:14:36 AM  
FB- get it right...they're 'freedom fighters.' Sheesh...some people...
2001-12-12 11:22:04 AM  
Next they'll be finding some Scottish Taliban who were fighting against....oh, wait, the Scots dont fight. They just sit around and spark off on there pc's. Eh, Harmonia?
2001-12-12 11:22:09 AM  
Fb-: OK, but not the liberal Manhattanites, who would smother him with therapy and praise -- let's drop this MF in the South Bronx.
2001-12-12 11:24:12 AM  
Well, I know one thing...John Walker will never be able to safely walk the streets in the USA. They can execute him or imprison him, but if he survives either of those possibilities, he's as good as dead. This Australian guy might not be in as much danger, but it's probably not far off.
2001-12-12 11:24:30 AM  
"Why are you afraid to go? Are your ideals not important enough to stand up for, or are you just a coward? "

Well I did my bit in Genoa, I only fight for causes I believe in Im afriad fb bot v2.1, not got that sticky exclamation mark key sorted yet?
2001-12-12 11:24:45 AM  

Yeah, Harmonia and his army anti-globalization terrorists are doing a fine job of overthrowing all capitalist countries.

2001-12-12 11:28:06 AM  
Sh*t now you have a sticky B, W and H key

what have you been doing to that poor keyboard?
2001-12-12 11:28:26 AM  

Did your bit in Genoa?!?! Pfft, you guys were nothing but terrorists, cowards and hypocrites. You went over there for a "peacful" protest and ended up attacking civilians and destroying homes and businesses so you could try to terrorize people into condeming capitalism.

2001-12-12 11:28:36 AM  
For the life of me, I can't figure out the appeal to foreigners, (to non-Arabs, specifically, not Lou Graham) of joining the Taliban/al-Qaeda. Can someone please explain?
2001-12-12 11:29:07 AM  
England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the U.S., Canada, Australia, NZlnd...

c' us your Taliban
2001-12-12 11:29:39 AM  

I think I can. You take Harmonia's ideals and beliefs, add a backbone, and you get foreign taliban/al qaeda fighters.
2001-12-12 11:30:41 AM  
So lets summerise Mr Sticky keys.

Dont do anything=coward
Fight for what you believe in=coward
propose unpopular opinions=coward
Disagree with me=terrorist

Sad sad sad little man.
2001-12-12 11:32:26 AM  
Notice how these guys (american and aussie) are said to "provide useful information"

This is propaganda for the "next" time when some terrorist group considers allowing outsiders in their ranks.

... "you are an american? you want to join us? Okay, sit down right there".....POP POP POP goes the AK
2001-12-12 11:33:08 AM  

Spout off about your ideals and condem others while doing nothing to further those ideals = coward

Attack civilians, try to murder police and destroy homes and businesses to try to scare people away from capitalism = coward and terrorist

Unsubstantiated, wildly biased opinions = idiot

Disagree with me = get crushed like a flea

Hope I cleared that up.
2001-12-12 11:33:23 AM  
I have figured it out! Chicks in Burqas are HOT! and nothing turns them on like a zealot with and accent and an AK
2001-12-12 11:34:22 AM  
Im not a muslim Fb, not likely to support the Taleban now am I.

Crushed like a flea? pray tell how exactly mr sticky keys
2001-12-12 11:35:34 AM  

You should get Harmonia to autograph his portrait.
2001-12-12 11:37:02 AM  
Harmonia --
Before the self-righteousness gets too deep, check Kendra Okonski's piece in WSJ of 8/14 entitled "Riots Inc." that detail the enormous international finances behind these "grassroots" protests in Genoa and elsewhere.
There is no umbrella ideology; the antiglobalization business is a coalition of convenience between socialist foundation-, union- and eurogovernment-funded entities to further their agendas. Agendas, incidentally that fear a borderless world b/c the dynamics of such a world hasten Darwinian irrelevance of unions and eurocracies.
2001-12-12 11:42:32 AM  
Overpaid Slacker & FB-

Either one sounds good to me, where do I place my vote?
2001-12-12 11:43:39 AM  

Wait until I finish hollowing out Harmonia's skull, we will put the votes in there. Oh wait, already empty!
2001-12-12 11:43:44 AM  
Yeah, what he said!
2001-12-12 11:46:25 AM  
Hey troll...I mean, Fb,
Where did you obtain the authority to agrue Harmonia's courswe of action? Can you substantiate anything, you've said, with any type of quote from harmonia? Or are you just doing this to belittle some one because they have different views than you (and all views which you don't espouse must be the views that lead to terrorism)?

This is like hanging out a grade school... " you have cooties... and you're a Taliban take that"
2001-12-12 11:48:09 AM  
I am with Overpaid Slacker. Umbrella ideology, eurogovernment-funded, Darwinian irrelevance, eurocracies, God Damb all that stuff sounds snappy.
2001-12-12 11:48:53 AM  
Its cool that the taliban are secular enough to accept any nationality and race. Too bad about hating women and other human right abuses.

Besides there is a difference between ex-US sponsored taliban and al-queda. Taliban is just pustun people in a civil war, while the al-queda is international terrorist org.
2001-12-12 11:48:54 AM  
only missing one idiot now
2001-12-12 11:51:29 AM  
oooh the Wall St journal, cant argue with that. I mean its well known for its sympathetic coverage of radical movements.

Well funded? er dont think so m8.

As for the Socialists being involved, Guilty as I am a socialist. However the anti-capitalist movement is far bigger than just us.
2001-12-12 11:52:36 AM  
Although execution of Bin Laden team members
seems to be a natural and popular sentiment, wouldn't permanent imprisonment be a more offensive punishment for individuals with their type of mindset?

They're actively seeking death and whatever glorious crap they're expecting on the other side. Give em their remaining ~50-60 year lifespan in the usual 23 hour/day solitary confinment.

The death penalty is often considered the ultimate sentence when it is really a less than adequate punishment than is often deserved. Its removes the ability of the convicted to realize/experience a lifetime of not living just existing.

This guy will probably get neither.
2001-12-12 11:53:36 AM  

oooh the Wall St journal, cant argue with that. I mean its well known for its sympathetic coverage of radical movements.

Why would you want 'sympathetic' coverage!?!?! I want unbiased reporting, not leftist 'sympathetic' propaganda when I evaluate a situation!?!?!

No wonder you are brain washed.
2001-12-12 11:55:02 AM  
Er, sticky keys problem getting worse now affecting !, and ?

Why should I worry what the WSJ has to say, I was there guys I saw what happened with my own two eyes.

But of course you know better as you have the WSJ and CNN.
2001-12-12 11:58:05 AM  
OHHH OHHH!!! HE SIGNED IT!! I can't believe it!! I got Harmonia's picture autographed! I'm going to cherish this forever!! Jihad!!

2001-12-12 11:58:47 AM  
Well thats work over for another day

Byeeeeee all

2001-12-12 12:03:04 PM  
Hey, I heard that the Dead Kennedys are going to reunite and re-record "I Kill Children" only with a little twist, they are changing the title and chorus to "I Kill Afghanastan Children" with all proceeds going to the "Skin Alive the FARK Vermin" foundation or you can donate to

Thank You
2001-12-12 12:05:31 PM  
Hehe.. i first read that as "Mormon joins taliban". Now that would be cool.
