ITGreen: Hey, Ahmadinejad![www.girlwithnoname.com image 350x400]
meanmutton: Germany didn't attack the US; we attacked them.
meanmutton: Okay, I'm thinking -- what could possibly be similar in our culture? Accidentally using the N-word to refer to President Obama? Using the middle finger to point to the ceiling or something? Talking with food in his mouth? Slapping Secretary Clinton on the ass?
ChipNASA: ITGreen: Hey, Ahmadinejad![www.girlwithnoname.com image 350x400] COME AT ME MO!!!!!![i.imgur.com image 450x404]
leftshue: meanmutton: Slapping Secretary Clinton on the ass?I would pay good money to see Clinton's face after Ahmadinejad slapped her on the ass.
ScreamingHangover: heavymetal: Being a troll on FARK.iran must not be challenging at all.Your mother showed me her ankle.

whidbey: BigNumber12: whidbey: I don't see any ideas worth refuting.Since your reading comprehension seems to be lacking, I'll repeat myself.1) This guy is their chief diplomat. Why is it unreasonable to expect him to realize that the particular superstition that has upset him is held by a minority of the world's population, and the person he's speaking to is probably unaware of breaching it? Should we be thrilled that their chief diplomat is playing "insult swap" with someone who's completely unaware that they're even playing?2) Give me an example of our Head of State doing the equivalent of this.That's it. If you're so obviously justified, responding without namecalling should be simple for you.Sorry, just don't care for your attitude. So you don't care for this particular insult.Stop being a jackass about it. You sound like some Republican threatening to bomb Iran into being a democratic nation we can control.
CheekyMonkey: In some cultures, burping after a meal is a sign of respect for the chef, in others, it's considered vulgar. Is either interpretation empirically correct? No.
Joe Blowme: I wish someone would send a transformer ambasador to talk to these islamic savages, that would be great theater
StashMonster: I have heard of this insult before. There are places where waving at someone is an insult, and so on. You need to check these things when travelling to foreign countries, if you don't want to accidentally piss off random people and look like a dick. Also, to know when people are signalling their local equivalent of the finger.
Abuse Liability: sprawl15: whidbey: We reconstructed Japan and Germany after a war.This.We didn't build the nation, we reconstructed it. HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE difference.No, if anybody had read the link, they would be aware we didn't merely reconstuct Japan. We replaced the government and placed a multitude of military (and other) sanctions ensuring our safety and producing a more cohesive, united population in the aftermath of a terrible war. The very definition of nation building. why... do... I... continue... arguing...
bobbette: Cultural customs are cultural customs, people. It would be rude if someone came to America and picked their nose or scratched their ass while meeting with Obama.
bobbette: The Swedish ambassador did insult his hosts in the meeting. Given that he is a professional diplomat, he farked up
ChipNASA: namegoeshere: So balls = good, but soles of feet = bad. Got it.Wish I had balls.So I could tell you to look at them.Look.How YOU doin'?!?!!?/BIE?
probesport: meanmutton: Germany didn't attack the US; we attacked them.What about when they bombed pearl harbor?
JackieRabbit: So I guess unzipping and scratching my bass is out. Good to know.
deadsanta: "Exposing the soles of feet to public officials is a gesture that can land offenders in prison in the extremist Islamic state."WTF is wrong with these people, seriously.
BigNumber12: The action goes against the custom of some Muslim countries, which considers shoes unclean because they are 'closer to the ground, closer to the devil and farther away from God'.Grow the fark up, you children.
give me doughnuts: If something as simple as sitting with your legs crossed is an insult in your culture, then your culture is stupid.
SpikeStrip: A furious Mr Ahmadinejad returned the gesture and also crossed his legs 'in response to the impoliteness of his interlocutorOH SNAP!
