looks like the middle east is really heating up
2001-12-12 09:01:48 PM  
Actually this article doesn't mention the thing about the military, it was in the CNN news flash. Asswipes still don't have a link up, so here's FoxNews instead
2001-12-12 09:02:01 PM  
The shiat's gonna hit the fan.
2001-12-12 09:02:16 PM  
I hope my pants are alright.
2001-12-12 09:02:56 PM  
hi fellow farkers
what to guess what i just did?
2001-12-12 09:03:18 PM  
Looks like Hamas has Ji-"had it". Ahhh. Nothing like a bad pun.
2001-12-12 09:03:27 PM  
2001-12-12 09:03:37 PM  
And just as I say that CNN puts theirs up. I'm changing this link
2001-12-12 09:04:12 PM  
I'd just like to say that I completely support the actions of Isreal in this matter. It needs to be done.
2001-12-12 09:04:15 PM  
Boy, Israel really knows how to induce more and more suicide bombings.. if I lived in Israel I'd be staying home for the next few weeks.

Prediction: Arafat, rebuked, will no longer support peace openly and terrorism privately; he will instead start supporting terrorism publically, be assassinated by Israel, and then the shiat REALLY hiats the fan.
2001-12-12 09:04:44 PM  
I don't know if that can even be called a pun.

sigh. well, I'm outta here.
2001-12-12 09:06:47 PM  
here it goes...oh fark
2001-12-12 09:06:50 PM  
Man, this caught me TOTALLY by surprise, there are problems between israel and arafat?!?!?!? I had no idea.
2001-12-12 09:07:26 PM  
These people just seem so awful. And I bet they're smelly too.
2001-12-12 09:08:50 PM  
"It's nice to see senseless religious violence back where it belongs."

(yeah, i did steal that from the Onion)
2001-12-12 09:09:20 PM  
its all on.

palestinians kill with suicide bombers, the israelis use gunships.
C'mon Mister Bush, which of these two terrorist groups will you go after now that Afghanistan is quietening down?
2001-12-12 09:10:57 PM  
Well things have to go to an extreme before they can mellow back out. basic human nature.

Who has the nukes? both sides? good then.
2001-12-12 09:11:15 PM  
The whole world sucks.
2001-12-12 09:11:44 PM  
"Destruction was cleaning his favorite boots, Pestilence was having serious Horse grooming issues, War curiously could not be reached for comment. And famine, well let's just say he's been on a bit of a bender recently. In other news, Whores found in babylon, film at 10."
2001-12-12 09:12:31 PM  
palestinians kill with suicide bombers, the israelis use gunships

yeah, but the palestinians aim for crowded teenage hangouts and the israelis aim for suicide bombers. big difference.
2001-12-12 09:13:27 PM  
Every time there's a new military build-up somewhere, the same farkers pull the "oh shiat, I just shiat myself, there go my pants, oh crap, sweet jesus' ass, oh fark..."

Calm yourself. It's about time Israel did this, they've got a bad-ass US supported military and they're under constant attacks by Islamic terrorists. Isn't this what we want, a global war on terrorism? I sure do, being on the winning side makes for great current events.

There's nothing I like more than the smell of dead Islamic Extremists in the morning...
2001-12-12 09:13:31 PM  
I guess it was just one too many rabbi jokes.
2001-12-12 09:13:31 PM  
im cleaning out my closet as we speak.
2001-12-12 09:14:23 PM  
about friggin' time.
The thing that pisses me off about Isreal is the fact that every time they are attacked and put in the world's sympathy spotlight, they go and screw it up, making themselves look childish and stupid. Palestinian terrorists launch a series of suicide attacks on civilian targets, so what does Isreal do? Take a bulldozer and shred a civilian airport's runways, shoot kids throwing stones, etc.etc.
2001-12-12 09:14:51 PM  
In other news War, Famine, Pestilence and Destruction were seen oiling their saddles.
2001-12-12 09:15:12 PM  
I say we carpetbomb the whole lot, BOTH countries, and use the extra space as parking and put up some strip-malls.

What a bunch of tossers...
2001-12-12 09:16:23 PM  
the terrorists like boobies
2001-12-12 09:18:12 PM  
I'm so sick of Arabic people. Dumb mother farkers always starting shiat.

Let's finish off these dumb, dirty morons before they kill anyone else.

Genocide for a better tomorrow. Well...a better tomorrow for everyone who wasn't killed in the genocide at least. I assume that's implied though.
2001-12-12 09:19:34 PM  
yeah, but the palestinians aim for crowded teenage hangouts and the israelis aim for suicide bombers. big difference.

same result. They are both killing children & innocents.
One side has more guns & stuff. The other, more dedication to the cause.
result? both as bad as each other.
So, who's side are we on?
2001-12-12 09:19:44 PM  
for me the saddest part is that all parties agree this is "holy" ground they are fighting over/about. and they all tend to say "their" god is benevolent. then again look at the irish, same god different flavors. go figure.
2001-12-12 09:20:38 PM  
oops. please god don't tell me Rival gets to vote.
2001-12-12 09:20:41 PM  
I agree that the isralies have a right to attack TERRORIST instalations. However, they often seem to miss. They attack what they 'think' are terrorist instalations. So they probably kill alot of civilians too. *sigh* Some days I just think we should build a wall aroudn the two countries and let them kill each other off...

Anyone ever notice how juvenile international conflicts can be if you look at the basic disagreement? "MINE!" "No, MINE!" NO! MIIIIINNNNE!" So what we really need is a squad of specialized kindergarden teachers!
"Now go and stare at the wall until you're ready to act like a good boy (or girl)."
2001-12-12 09:23:06 PM  
weeeelll, I think the other thing to be aware of is that the 'west' ie UK,US are more than a little responsible for creating this situation.
Can we responsibly throw our hands in the air and say 'You guys sort it out'?
2001-12-12 09:23:27 PM  
Rival? I dont recall anything about arabs in this story about israel and palestine...I thought Saudi Arabia was south of there.

It will be interesting to see who takes which sides on this one.
2001-12-12 09:24:36 PM  
religion, did it really bring more happiness than terrible tormenting pain?
we keep falling into the same patterns, our actions just become more extreme. which could result in the end of the world, lets just hope there's enough people who can still think with a sober mind.. not a bloodthirsty one..
2001-12-12 09:24:46 PM  
If the Holy Land ever was truly holy, I think those bastards have done a fine job of desecrating it. Anyone else see the irony of hundreds of thousands of violent acts and coldblooded murder taking place in God's chosen land? Hell, I wouldn't rule that land if you paid me. And why is the cradle of religion in the middle of some of the crappiest real estate on the planet? If these people had any sense, they would have secretly changed the Holy Land to Jamaca, or the Florida Keys, or something.
2001-12-12 09:25:24 PM  
Argh! You know what. Fark both groups. Let 'em kill each other. I'm not taking sides. Let 'em both kill each other. There will NEVER be peace there. Never never never.

Fark Isreal, Fark Palestine. I'm tired of this shiat.
2001-12-12 09:26:26 PM  
Holy Wars are sooo time consuming! Can't we just have a nice old fashioned 'hatfield and McCoys'' kinda thing?
2001-12-12 09:27:20 PM  
As each day passes, the thought of turning the middle east into a giant glass sheet seems more and more reasonable.
Are they ever going to just say "fark it, screw Allah anyway, he's a pussy" and go watch tv? come on camel-jockeys, think for a change!
2001-12-12 09:27:52 PM  
foxglove, didn't god do the same with sodom and gomorra? what a great farking role model he is for humans ;p
haha.. as if.

the bible is full of wise words, but also full of a whole load of crap. ( i was raised by christian parents, and i'm not some angsty anti religion kiddie )
2001-12-12 09:29:13 PM  
Bongo: why the hell not???
i mean its hardly like noones tried to maintain a peace over there, maby its time for all the big grown-up western countries step back and let them sort it out by themselves, i'd imagine a peace brokered independently between the 2 countries would hold together much better than one contrived by american delegations and task foeces and envoy's and all.

And wouldnt it be just a LITTLE hypocritical for US/UK to try and stop thier war During a war of thier own not too far away??
2001-12-12 09:33:02 PM  
I think I speak for everyone when I say... Those damned Jews
2001-12-12 09:35:02 PM  

Well, I was thinking that promising the Jews a return to the Holy land and dropping them all off in boats in Palestine following the 2nd World war began a bit of friction.

Also, leaving them to it isn't really an option as the Middle East has something very important going for it. Can you guess what it is?
2001-12-12 09:35:33 PM  
Religion is poison.
2001-12-12 09:37:22 PM  
True, Okita. All I'm saying is that little corner of the world has had its karmic balance thrown completely out of whack. Bad juju.

I'm making up a new God - the old one's a little too outdated anymore. This new God just wants you to hang out and be cool to each other. Oh, yeah, his faithful should reclaim their chosen land in the tropical splendor of the Hawaiian islands (just the small ones that no one's using).
Anyone that has issues should rent one of our Holy Land condo packages and see if the perks aren't a little nicer.
2001-12-12 09:40:30 PM  
Personally it's hard for me to see much difference between Israel and the Palestinians anymore - except one has money and the other doesn't. After kicking people off the land they've lived on for generations, how can you really expect them not to fight back in whatever way they can?

Yes, the land belonged to Israel once upon a time, but just think how your average Joe Sixpack would react if Native Americans started to reclaim their land by force? Do you think he just hand it over, or would he grab his gun and shoot him a few "redskins"? This claim would be even more recent than Israel's.

No one's hands are clean here - innocent people will be killed by both sides, and Israel is just hoping the war in Afghanistan has caused enough "towelhead" hatred to avoid anyone caring much.
2001-12-12 09:42:19 PM  
sounds like your new God and followers might get stomped by the 'other New God' who wants his people to claim dominion over the earth via bloodletting and chaos. And sodomy.
2001-12-12 09:42:48 PM  
What Bin Laden and his buddies did for the Taliban, the terrorists that the Palestinians harbor will do for them.

How dare Arafat claim he wants peace when he is not willing to atleast try to get rid of those whose sole purpose in life is the destruction of Israel and the United States at any cost.
2001-12-12 09:45:46 PM  
Maybe we should send in some Ornagutans with trumpets.

Should calm things down.
2001-12-12 09:46:11 PM  
shana nananana heyheyhey goodbye...
