I expect you, Commander and Co to run a tight ship & quickly dispatch with malodorous glue-sniffers. This thread, however silly & light-hearted for the most part, does kinda provide much needed context & continuity that's increasingly harder to find these days. As I told TRD, this thread is as relevant or more relevant as ever 4 years later.<quoted text>
The "Republican" gonzo you refer to is a conscript from the Blame Izzy thread who made his debut by telling us to shut this thread down. He then went on to accuse everybody, TRD, NaNa (yeah,she was here for the show) and myself of all being Muslims and Jew phoney wannabees. I suspect he probably realized that those blazing cannons were aimed at the wrong people. However, shunning was the best tact to take until he calmed down. All things considered, I enjoy his outrage when it's directed properly. Pretty perceptive of you, Young Man
Back to Boston carnage. People freakinG out over the fact that these fugly Allah boys from Chechnya/KSA packed all manner of shrapnel, bolts, ball bearings into the devices, that otherwise were too weak to cause so many injuries. The ever-liberal MSM are practically aghast or agog or whatever over it. As they should be, this stuff is just beyond barbaric.
Pretty ironic considering thar blowing up "soft" pregnant women, children & elderly with explosive devices packed to the gills with ball bearings, screws, some pre-dipped into fluids of AIDS-patients.... is practically a NATIONAL PAST-TIME of NaNa's favourite Arab freedom-liberators. Literally every neighborhood, every extended family can claim the honour of either carrying out an attack or supporting it or inciting it in some way.
That's right, that's Palestinian M.O. To maximize the civilian body count, and make sure that those who survive are disfigured & otherwise suffer as much as possible. Allah the Merciful. Prophet Mohammad the Incandescent. And all that.
Likewise, Palis are known for timing their rocket barrages to coincide with Jewish kids going to/coming from kindergardens & schools.
And why not? As practically every Pali leader ever, whether religious or quasi-Secular/Socialist, believed: "Jews are evil, they are dogs & pigs, there is no place for them on earth but in the pits of Heck."
So when, say, Western-educated "moderate" like Morsi accidentally gets caught expressing those views, and the "enlightened" Europe feigns obligatory shock... remember that it's what most of them learned from diapers on.
If anything, Pali carricula, media & culture has gotten MORE radical since Israel's suicidal Oslo/Gaza concessions, disengagement and the like. Even the Sinai bedouin who just 10-15 years ago used to be fairly moderate petty criminals/smugglers, are now full blown jihadis.
