Gotta love the Boobies filter....
2001-10-09 10:37:14 PM  
i am so glad and relieved we are finaly getting some countering going.
they say that the taste of revenage is bitter, but i find it to my liking.
2001-10-09 10:37:37 PM  
hmmm... you know it is kind of hard not to gain air superiority over a country with a few dozen air craft and and SAM batteries all of which are 20+ years behind the ours technologically.

Hell, the Wisconsin Air National Guard could have probably gained air superiority over that country in about as much time.
2001-10-09 10:37:41 PM  
That is sad about the land mine workers...but really cool about all the people defecting to our side. (and special to demo, hey, i haven't had time for HN lately but after this week I should be around lots!)
2001-10-09 10:38:00 PM  
So apparently they can no longer attack us with their broke-ass MIGs? Well that's good.

Back to rock-throwing it is.
2001-10-09 10:39:49 PM  
and as I said tonight.. I don't think you can get sick that quick from inhaling Anthrax (Kentucky story)
2001-10-09 10:43:14 PM  
I had some revenage once, it tasted like chicken.
2001-10-09 10:43:27 PM  
Yeah, but honestly, what's left to "strike" in Afghanistan? Large rocks, so then there'll be smaller rocks?
2001-10-09 10:46:23 PM  
You know it's not going to be long before one of these stupid ass news station's broadcasts information that was never meant to be told and totally frell any forces we send in there because Afghanistan found out by watching our news that we were making a move against them in what we hoped to be a suprise attack.

*How's that for a run on sentence?*
2001-10-09 10:50:05 PM  

Did you say "frell"? Holy Farscape! That's entering the English lexicon? ; )

Seriously: Wasn't Dubbya in the Air National Guard? I wanna see him fly some sorties!
2001-10-09 10:50:10 PM  

Holy large account numbers Batman!
2001-10-09 10:50:29 PM  
Anyone ever watch "Faces of Death"? Dr. B. Gross ruled.
2001-10-09 10:53:39 PM  
1) "Air-Superiority in Afghanistan"? Uhhhh... no shiat?

-and in a related story-

2) Buckshot has boobies.
2001-10-09 10:53:46 PM  
Enk, its time to go kill Diablo. And his minions
2001-10-09 10:54:36 PM  
Haha yeah it's me... whee! Finally ended up here after all your references to it :)

good point, Flibbertigibbet...but we can destroy networks of tunnels and all those secret caves too, or block up the entrances to them using the little rocks, heehee..
2001-10-09 10:56:43 PM  
hanky will make sure to bring lots of rejuvination potions to do that (ha! computer game humor! I kill me)
2001-10-09 10:56:44 PM  
"al Qaeda Calls for More Terror "
You ain't seen terror yet, Mr. Taliban.
Can you say "Hiroshima"? I knew you could.
2001-10-09 11:07:57 PM  
It's impressively lame to steal phrases from video games, enk.
2001-10-09 11:12:18 PM  
Since Sept 11th I have tried to keep my anger at a low level. Maintain a cool head and let the Gov and Military do there Job, But that past few speachs that have come from Bin Ladin and his Gang of Diaperheaded Cootie Farmers. I have lost my cool.... I am now a very PISSED OFF AMERICAN and I think that we should All be pissed. This guy has killed over 7000 of our people plus who knows how many others in this world that didnt deserve it. America and Allies need to Hit that place hard Atom Hard. Then we should go over to Iraq and take care of that Putz too before he picks up where Bin Ladin leaves off. I have heard enough of those ass holes trying to convince there people that dying for islam is good. if it is so damn good. Shouldnt Bin buddy have done a suicide mission him self by now ? ITs time Kill any one that Says the words Bin Ladin with out adding the words Farking Loser behind . Those guys are saying there are 1000's of Muslim extremist in our country right now.. Its time to Kill them too. Ask them to recite the national anthem. if they cant do it,. Plant an American Bullet between there terroristic beany little eyes and pat your self on the back afterwards because you just did america a favor.. Happy Trails Bin Buddy time to Die for jihad Hope Alla Kicks your ass too.
2001-10-09 11:14:32 PM  
Im with you Akachibi.....

1. They hate America for no particular reason (ALL OF THEM)
2. They consider ALL non - Islams to be of no value
3. They have vowed that they will not stop...
4. They use cowardly dirty tactics.....

I'm a Canadian and after seeing these people celebrating the deaths of innocents I don't think I'd feel anything but happy to see the whole farkING region NUKED!
2001-10-09 11:16:02 PM  
The loss of Tabliban rebels that defected is a common pratice of war in Afghanistan . Half of the Northern Alliance is made of old Taliban fighters that lost interest in the brutal dictatorship . I just heard that the Taliban have said that Osama Bin Laden is free to wage jihad against America . Hinting at the fact that they might be thinking twice about backing his cause . The Russian millitary have supplied the Northern Alliance with new weapons and battle dresses . They might make advances and eventualy diffues this situation quicker than we think .But I wonder if we even want our troops to join these guys , allthough they fight against the Taliban i wonder if we can ultimately trust them in the end . As you know we supported them in the ousting of Russian troops , our Special forces taught them how to fight and supplied them , and then years later they take down the WTC's . I wonder when all this is over and whom ever is in power , and we are still backing Isreal , will their feelings remain the same or will they stab us in the back again ?
2001-10-09 11:16:44 PM  
Akachibi and Czae Now your talking. Farkin A., I would even Ride on that Bomb on the way down, Just to make sure it goes off when it hits the ground. Any one for Giant Mushrooms ???
2001-10-09 11:17:03 PM  
rocko67: are you serious? i can't tell. you sound like a cliche. cut down on the roids and turn down your fox news.
2001-10-09 11:18:58 PM  
hehe Hanky

I was wondering when somebody was going to notice anything i write (or quote and pretend i made it up)
2001-10-09 11:22:15 PM  
Your damn Right I am serious. I want to get on with my life and until this crap is over with it just wont be the same. as for Fox News I Never watch that crap its misleading, I am reading BBC which gives a bigger better un bias oppinion and picture of this hole mess. As for the Roids the only roids I have are Hemroids I bet you didnt want to know that ? But you brought it up.
2001-10-09 11:22:43 PM  
"turn down your FOX news"


...I love it.
2001-10-09 11:24:53 PM  
Do all farkers a favour Rocko67, please DO ride whatever bomb is due to be dropped on Afghanistan next.

You can feel great about guiding it to the intended target and the rest of us can feel great knowing that one more humourless fundamentalist cliche has been wiped out.
2001-10-09 11:25:17 PM  
Ride the bomb all the way down? Wow, Slim Pickens LIVES!! (Gotta get that movie on DVD!)
2001-10-09 11:27:07 PM  
Breaking news (BBC): Al-Queda say hijacked plane attacks will never stop and the Taliban say they have lifted all restrictions on Bin Laden so that he can wage a holy war on the US with full force.

Gulp, this is getting farking MESSY. And now watching those mass protests of muslims ALL OVER that region now calling for death upon the US, i can only imagine that this is going to get much MUCH messier by the weekend.

These are scary times.
2001-10-09 11:27:56 PM  
Yeah Rocko, what are you thinking? Everyone knows nuclear bombs explode in the air, not on the ground.

Still, not even necessary. Kind of sad that we've already become bored with bombing them and ran out of targets. Now it's time to load up the Apaches, put on the night vision and go hunt for those farkers when they come out of their caves. They gotta come out some time.
2001-10-09 11:28:00 PM  
I'm just saying, I think it's time for the ground troops to move in.
2001-10-09 11:28:59 PM  
[thinks like Taliban]

"Hey you UN workers, stay over there in that house near the air defenses." *plants bomb in basement and waits*
US attacks weeks later. *button pressed* *Boom*

Taliban: "Only ones you killed were your own aid workers. Honest!"

The UN aid workers were probably deemed traitors and were put in harm's way. Worry more about the lies of the Taliban than the lies of our own free press..

Smell my finger?

Rocko67 ! well said but all the arabs in the US are not bad , just come here like any other hard working guy to earn a living and make something of himself . But for the terrorist "cells" that are in the US rest asured , we will find them , root those A#%holes out , and go about our business . Dropping atom bombs isn't such a good idea either . It deprives our ground troops all the fun of wiping them out ! Dude i feel your pain . I wanna see more than just pics of lil camps and runways blown up . I wanna see a massive can of whoop-ass opened up daily until we crush these poor lil basterds into the ground . I said in anoother post to some dude who was pissed and i said this .
Just go on with life as usual and when you come home from work everynight ,enjoy the show .
2001-10-09 11:32:27 PM  
Just remember that little war in the 60s it was people with your attitude that let it get out of hand. Remember WW2 with out that Bomb we would be speaking Natzi German or Japanese right now, thats if our bloodline would have survived. As for Humorless I was being serious no funnies intended. You must be a true kiwi because of the way you spell things like Color "Colour". I know this because My Wife is from NZ in america we do not use that U sorry if it bothers you.
Tell Clark thanks for the help.
2001-10-09 11:33:24 PM  
Bin Laden on the WTC attack:
"Those youths who did what they did for Islam have done a good deed"

+ more, but it isn`t on the site yet, only just now on the news here at 4:30am.
2001-10-09 11:36:41 PM  
Problem is a massive can of "whoop ass" won't help change the 8 year old that is being taught to hate Americans and everyone else in the world who isn't a MUSLIM......

We are ALL A-L-L ....Hindu, Christian, Buddist Scientologist, Athiest.....ALLLLLLL at risk for NOT being a Muslim .....Kill one rat and another will pop out of the sewer....
2001-10-09 11:38:05 PM  
Ah, it is, and they are threatening the US *and* UK, sheesh what have we done to deserve it?

IM Sorry No offense intended to the Honest Arab, Muslim Muslem, Islam, and any others. I am ruling out only the ones that can cause us harm. To say this on my part. I am not a hateful person in general But when my home land is attacked its time To ROCK AND ROLL. Would you guys at least settle for deporting all the Arab students and non residents out of the country until the world is stable again ? it worked in WW2 I just dont trust our Gov to stop that shiat from happening again, THink about this. 1 20y/o mentally unstable kid got into the cockpit of a jet this week,. Now no offense intended. But if this was say 4 or 5 retarded Terrorist. Whats to stop them from overtaking one captain ? That is why I think we need to make sure they are not on our land period.
2001-10-09 11:41:17 PM  
Number of muslims i personally met in my life? 2
Number of muslims that vowed to kill me, my family and my friends in all the horrible ways possible because I wasn't muslim? 2
Number of muslims to kick me in the groin? 1
Number of personal friends hurt in muslim related terrorist acts? 2

I still am trying to beleive that Islam is a peaceful religion, but considering my personal experience and the recent events, I would like to venture to say that Islam might be peaceful, but muslims don't follow the true islam or something.

Come to think of it, I'm for genocide in this case... might be wrong, inhumane, sick, juvenile or whatever, but heck... you can't argue with the fact that it'll solve the problem.
2001-10-09 11:44:41 PM  
Revenge is a dish best served cold. And it is very cold... in space.

And as for sci-fi references, since all the news channels have unanimously agreed to use "America Strikes Back" as their tag line I can't get the Imperial March music from Star Wars:ETB out of my head. Da-da-da, da-dada, da-dada...
2001-10-09 11:45:48 PM  
Czae gotta agree with you again.. Its unfortunate but the REAL TRUTH Here is that the only way to keep this crap from happening every 10 years is to take it out by the roots. Woman and Children First... Its very sad but its the only way.
2001-10-09 11:47:13 PM  
Perhaps we can rename the operation, "The Clone Wars"
2001-10-09 11:49:04 PM  
As long as we're on the topic of extreme measures, what if we use their own tactics and terrorize them? What if we announced that the next attack would result in the destruction of the temples at Mecca and Medina?
2001-10-09 11:49:22 PM  
Groman, I`m ashamed to say that i`m thinking the same, that whole region seems incompatible with the rest of the world.

I`m almost a pacifist but i wouldn`t be too bothered if a metoer hits and wipes out the entire middle east.
2001-10-09 11:51:14 PM  
Thats METEOR! Or metorite, asteroid, what farking ever.
2001-10-09 11:52:25 PM  
You mean the US has better air-force technology than a poor, famine-ridden third-world country?

This is just like a Garden, You have to take the weed by the root or it keeps coming back.

They shall be pushed before us, yapping like the toothless, dung eating dogs they are.
They shall not sleep, and food shall fester in their bellies.
They shall flee from land to land on bleeding feet, yet shall find no shelter.
Their allies shall abandon them, and their children shall take new names and deny their heritage.
Almighty Ja sees the horror of their obscenities, and their agonies shall only increase after their deaths.
