 Have you ever noticed that? Sometimes an announcer comes on television and says, "Six thousand people were killed in an explosion today." You say, "Where, where?" He says, "In Pakistan." You say, "Aww, fark Pakistan. Too far away to be fun." But if he says it happened in your hometown, you say, "Whooa, hot shiat, Dave! C'mon! Let's go down and look at the bodies!" ---G. Carlin

Lemme guess: Ted Cruz demands that Obama do something about this.

Too soon? I give him until Thursday.

Whew!  For a second there I thought it was a golpe de Estado.  That would be really bad.

Farking savages, scratching in the dirt.
Wake me when they start affording education to women and begin to respect science, Jack.

Attempted coup. There's a difference.

I'm told by a secret source deep within US intelligence (or maybe it was a Youtube comment, I confuse those sall the time) that special forces have a plan to either destroy or seize their nukes if necessary.

Another one?

Don't they ever get tired?

Modern Pakistan hasn't been politically stable since1947.
 
2014-09-02 05:22:59 PM  
Pakistan is much like Egypt.  The military is who run things, but they allow the civilians to pretend like they're in charge to distract from any mis-steps by the military.

No one gave a shiat about the one in Thailand, no reason why they should care about this one

Because they said, "phuket."

No one coup

That's at least 2,000 miles beyond my ability to give a fark.

Which means never.

A coup in Pakistan? That bastion of intellectual thought, government integrity, and advanced culture? No way....

They take a fifteen minute break, drink some water and jump back in.

Why does everyone, including the police, carry a stick?

Wow, I'd totally forgotten about that song.

Hey Pakistan, try not to have a coup on the way to the parking lot!

Coup D'Etat

Russia, China and America aren't going to nuke each other. I'd have laughed in the face of anyone who even suggested it before Putin started Hitlering it up, but even with that, it's not going to happen.

No, the next nuclear strike is going to fall into one (or both) of two categories: It's going to be inside the border of Pakistan or India, and/or it is going to be an attack by a terrorist group.

Hey, guys pushing on the end, you're not helping.

Thailand doesn't have nukes.

Moronic website over reacting yet again, they are like Glen Beck on crazy steroids but on the left.

Karmic: Why does everyone, including the police, carry a stick?


Because sticks dom't run out of ammunition? Because if the opposing side takes a stick sway from you, they're not really better armed than they were before? Because sticks are a lot cheaper for a third-world country than firearms are?

This is the second time I've seen the cleric's supporters described as "technocrats", which sounded like a typo (I expected theocrats), until I bothered to look up the guy.

He sounds too good to be true, but then again, he's a Sufi and they've been typically described as pretty mellow and reasonable.
 
2014-09-02 07:07:49 PM  
Hey cops! Did you take note of who were the first people to receive retribution when the shiat came down? That's right! It's coming. A stick upside your head.
 
2014-09-02 07:08:21 PM  
2 coups in less than a week. Exciting!

Latest from the Washington Free Beacon (Reprinted by the Washington Times)

As if any unidentified aircraft leaving that area would be allowed within range of a North American target.

But heaven forbid a strictly controlled dictatorship like Best Korea get nukes, they are much safer in the hands of a 'country' that suffers revolutions more often than it is stable.

And apologies, it looks like there is an autoplay video at the bottom of the "article" and my sound is muted, so I didn't notice it before I posted.
