I'd actually like to see them dealt with in Pakistan. They know how to punish criminals.
2002-02-27 07:31:20 AM  
I agree with EnemyFrank. That's one of the problems here. If we shorten this bastard, then he's a martyr. If the Pak's take his head, then he's a good for nothing murderer.

It also undermines the Pak's judicial system. Besides, we can always secretly zap the mother molesting bastard if they let him walk.

2002-02-27 07:32:30 AM  
Time for the hippies to chime in about how Pearl deserved it and it's fair punishment for America.

Ohhh won't somebody please think of the terrorists?
2002-02-27 07:40:51 AM  
No-one ever said that Fb

Is there some other imaginary fark where these things are posted or do the voices tell you about them?
2002-02-27 07:41:31 AM  
Agree with EnemyFrank. Let the Pakis take care of their own. Justice will be much swifter and harsher (stiffer/harder), and we won't be responsible for his martyrdom. Fark him.
2002-02-27 07:42:32 AM  
BTW, Pakis is a pretty insulting term (As GWB found out)
2002-02-27 07:42:59 AM  
Sorry about all the bold text, rough night last night.
2002-02-27 07:44:22 AM  
Sorry, can't seem to do anything right today...
*Sheepishly lowers eyes*
2002-02-27 07:47:19 AM  

I know "Pakis" is considered insulting, but I never figured out why...It's just an abreviation. Same with "Japs".

Fair enough - if they don't like it I won't use it. I just never thought of them as the especially vicious racial slurs they're made out to be. Certainly not very imaginative. ;)
2002-02-27 07:49:01 AM  
You damn hippies would acquit those people because you think "America deserved it" and that Pearl shouldn't have been in Pakistan because Pakistan is for Islamic people.

After seeing that killing, it's more and more obvious that the Islamic religion is entrenched in terrorism and none of the Mullahs or Ayatollahs are condemning it.

It's a shame you hippies are gonna defend Richard Reid as putting that C4 in his shoe because of American policies, that John Lindh joined the Taliban because Israel bombs Palestine and the people who killed Pearl did it because Pearl is American and 'deserved' it.

2002-02-27 07:52:11 AM  
It would be a real farking shame if Mr. Saeed were to be kidnapped and killed by some previously unknown group of terrorists. Maybe a video tape might even show up somewhere?

Does anyone know Donald Rumsfeld's Fark ID?
2002-02-27 07:53:01 AM  
I love how everyone who doesn't agree with shiatsucker Fb is a Jew-hating hippy.

What a farkin' ignorant pigfarker he is.
2002-02-27 07:53:26 AM  
'I know "Pakis" is considered insulting, but I never figured out why'

it's only a slur in England. Who the hell cares what the hippies and Pakis think, it's not like they are leaving an endearing picture of themselves to the American people.

2002-02-27 07:53:41 AM  
Emeril, have you a single example of anyone saying on fark that Richard Pearl deserved it? even one.

"After seeing that killing" so you have seen it?

or are you just making that up too.
2002-02-27 08:00:33 AM  

well, the killing was on video tape, and I ended up seeing a bit of that. Horrendous scene.

As for saying Pearl deserved it, i'm not a Lesbian know-it-all with no life that would go back to every thread and go thru every comment to find it. I am sure that it has been said before.

2002-02-27 08:01:43 AM  
Harmonia and I are sick and tired of the usual "Hang'em High" mentality!

Has anyone ever given any thought to these "terrorists"?

It's obvious that they suffer from repressed memories of a bad childhood involving being beaten with a can of Spam in a sock. Their already fragile self esteem is further compromised by post partem depression in addition to a lack of quality television....
2002-02-27 08:04:57 AM  
I can't believe I'm about to say this, but I find myself in the same position as Harmonia... I have never seen a comment even hinting that Pearl deserved to die... I'm not sure I understand the motivation to assume it has been said.

I would love to see those responsible for this extradited. They'd love our federal pound-me-in-the-ass penetentiaries.
2002-02-27 08:05:10 AM  
And here comes Fb imitating me again.

Its flattering Fb, but perhaps a waste of your time?

Emeril, Yes I only have sex with women, sorry if that offends you.

No-one here ever said he deserved it, and the video has not been released so it looks like you are lying on both counts.
2002-02-27 08:06:58 AM  
Kudos to Musharraf for doing the right thing.

As far as dealing with them in Pakistan, that would be fine with me except that Islamic law is two-faced: if an Islamic kills a non-Islamic, the penalties for the murder are less severe than if an Islamic killed another Islamic.
2002-02-27 08:07:41 AM  
shiiiiiiiit, bring'em over here and they will end up walking.....just like OJ

Shouldn't be traipsing around over there in the first place'

It took 2 minutes to find a post on Fark saying Pearl deserved it.

Daaaayymmmmnnn... that was easy.

and let's face it, even if the video hasn't been released, I never specificly said that I saw it on video tape, I did see a few still photos of it. But, what proves your 'no video has been released' claim?

"Emeril, Yes I only have sex with women, sorry if that offends you."

now, that is one huge lie.

2002-02-27 08:09:29 AM  
Yup send em back to Pakistan. I would also like to see the terrorists in cuba handed over to the Northern Alliance. Apparently some of the NA didn't follow Geneva protocol when dealing with the retreating Taliban.
2002-02-27 08:10:53 AM  
I thought the "experts" said he was already dead when they made the video.
2002-02-27 08:13:23 AM  
I see we're getting off to wonderful start this morning.
2002-02-27 08:13:34 AM  
OK Emiril; point out to me how that single sentence calls for his death. That was a comment made directly after his kidnapping, and the basic statement was if you feel the need to cover news in known dangerous theatres, you should fully expect that something like that might happen.

Thanks for taking my quip out of context, asshead
2002-02-27 08:19:27 AM  
Skidnuts: Thanks for making my morning - don't ask me why, but your use of 'asshead' was just perfect.
2002-02-27 08:19:35 AM  
Also aren't these people the kidnappers and not the actual killers?
2002-02-27 08:19:57 AM  
Oh boo hoo if your Terrorist-hugging quip was 'out of context', it's in the right context, you said that Pearl should have known what was gonna happen because he was an American in Pakistan. Sorta like how someone would say that a woman with a short skirt and no panties should know what is gonna happen if she walks into a dark alley.

In both cases, that is justifing the crime, which you did with Pearl.

When Pearl died, Pakis danced in the streets to celebrate another dead American.

2002-02-27 08:21:11 AM  
Why should he have not been there?
2002-02-27 08:21:49 AM  
Anyways, after totally embarassing Harmonia and exposing Skidnuts, I gotta go.

I have a life, unlike these lefties.

2002-02-27 08:24:14 AM  
Emeril, are you paying attention?

There is a difference between being aware of the possible consequences of your actions, and deserving those consequences. To say that someone should be aware of the possibilites is not the same as justifying whatever happens to them.
2002-02-27 08:26:35 AM  
He had every right to be there, Bb...my argument is with Emiril up there distorting what I meant. I'm not gonna sit here & get wrapped up in a Harmonia, Fb- and God knows who else flamewar. That shiat gets lame in a hurry

"anyone who reports for the WSJ or makes those stupid dot dot illustrations of world leaders deserves to die in the hell of rotting bananas"

Daaaaaaayyyyyyymmmmm.... that WAS easy
2002-02-27 08:28:26 AM  
heh...nice try, Bug

Bit of a dodgy date there .. 32nd January 2002???
2002-02-27 08:31:46 AM  
And shouldn't it of been "dot-to-dot illustrations of world leaders"??
2002-02-27 08:32:16 AM  

nothing gets past you boy. not even the mustache on my "sister".
2002-02-27 08:36:07 AM  
Why are they bringing them here? I thought Perl was an Israeli citizen.
2002-02-27 08:40:53 AM  
You f.ucking right wing emeril terrorist hugging jingoistic f.ucks really are stupid. Why is it you want this f.ucking terrorist freed? What the f.uck is wrong with you emeril? He killed a US citizen, I say we off the farker, but you emeril, would like to see him go FREE? What an asswipe....
2002-02-27 08:49:34 AM  

That's just the sort of blinkard Philistine pig-ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage!
2002-02-27 08:53:11 AM  
08:19:57 AM EmerilWhen Pearl died, Pakis danced in the streets to celebrate another dead American.

Do you have a link for that as I never saw that footage. Where was it broadcast? Which channel?
2002-02-27 08:54:36 AM  
The only video of a throat cutting that I know of exists at stileproject - and his site has sucked ass for about a year now... and THAT was of some poor russian soldier and a terribly dull blade.

As for Pearl - I don't give a damn where he was in this world, he was an American and did not deserve his horrific death. The real horror is the waves of political agenda opportunists who are using his killing to prop up their arguments. Nothing like using a warm decapitated corpes as a podium...

Oh, and ANYTHING that comes from Fb is pure flame inducing fecal matter. Know that and move on.

There is no extradition treaty with Pakistan is there?
So let justice take it's course. Then present to evidence from the previous crimes he is accused of and start negotiating extradition, and in the meantime maybe Pakistan would executed him?
2002-02-27 09:02:17 AM  
I put myself in danger of dying.

Now I'm dead.

Boo Hoo.
2002-02-27 09:03:24 AM  
should read Then present the evidence
2002-02-27 09:04:58 AM  
Let Pakistan deal with them. If there's anything left after they're done, then the US should try to extradite.
2002-02-27 09:05:41 AM  
The United States signed an extradition treaty with Pakistan in 1931, and it went into effect in 1942, when Pakistan was under British control, Fleischer said.

2002-02-27 09:12:17 AM  
Saw on the news last night where the video has been leaked. Anybody heard anything concrete about this??
2002-02-27 09:14:02 AM  
US tried to arrest reporter's 'killer'

Washington secretly issued an arrest warrant for the chief suspect in the murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl over the kidnapping of three British tourists, it was revealed last night.

Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheik, 28, appeared today in a Karachi court where a judge ordered that he be detained for a further 14 days. It emerged that just before Mr Pearl's kidnapping US authorities had wanted to charge Sheikh with masterminding the 1994 abduction of the tourists in India.

All four, including a US citizen, were freed in a raid by Indian police in which Sheik was wounded and captured. He served five years in prison until hijackers held 155 airline passengers hostage in Afghanistan to secure his release.

A federal grand jury investigation last year indicted British-born Sheik, a former London School of Economics student, over the tourist kidnappings. US diplomats were pressurising the Pakistani government to arrest Sheik and extradite him nearly two weeks before Mr Pearl's kidnapping on 23 January.

Sheik, alleged leader of Jaish-e-Mohammed, surrendered to the Pakistani police on 5 February.
2002-02-27 09:14:29 AM  
So, by this logic, the people responsible for the spate of murders of German tourists in Florida a number of years back should have been extradited to Germany for trial there, rather than being dealt with in U.S. courts?

I'm sorry, this doesn't make any sense. If they violated Pakistani law, in Pakistan, they should be tried and punished in Pakistan.
