    Fallujah

    With a dazzing mix of bravado and stupidity, U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt said yesterday: "Fallujah remains one of those cities in Iraq that just don't get it".

    The naive and hapless Kimmitt is totally unaware of what our marines were saying and doing last week in Fallujah: "Fighting Friday in the city of Fallujah, about 35 miles west of Baghdad, left one U.S. Marine dead and seven wounded, a U.S. spokesman in Baghdad said...The 1st Marine Expeditionary Force issued a statement saying it was "conducting offensive operations ... to foster a secure and stable environment for the people." It went on to say that "SOME HAVE CHOSEN TO FIGHT. HAVING ELECTED THEIR FATE, THEY ARE BEING ENGAGED AND DESTROYED." [emphasis mine, http://www.harktheherald.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=1
    7668&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0
    ]

    Perhaps Kimmit should listen to what the residents of Fallujah are saying:
    "The people were praising God for their good fortune in killing Americans."
    "The Americans killed my brother."
    "Fallujah is the cemetery for Americans"
    "They hung those two bodies for a long time and there was dancing and cheering"
    "This is what will happen to every American invader who comes to Fallujah,"

    Kimmitt pontificates as though the US is fully entitled to Fallujah. He is another establishment drone who has trouble connecting those infamous dots. Bad enough that the sand niggers have the nerve to put our oil under their sand. But to have the temerity to resist the occupation as well? Resistance is insolence! Clearly those in Fallujah "just don't get it".

    Meanwhile, out of a deep respect to Al Dub'ya, the residents of Fallujah reply: "Bring 'em on!"

      Even ignoring the fact that every act creates a backlash, sets another wheel in motion, trying to "purge the evil" has no possibility of working.

    • >Don't just do something, sit there.

      >There is no "better".

      >Those that try to make things "better" are the enemies of life itself.

      "The pessimist regards social conditions as forming a system bound together by an iron law which cannot be evaded, as something in the form of one block, and which can only disappear through a catastrophe which involves the whole. If this theory is admitted, it then becomes absurd to attribute the evils from which society suffers to a few wicked men; the pessimist is not subject to the bloodthirsty follies of the optimist driven mad by the unforeseen obstacles that his projects meet; he does not dream of bringing about the happiness of future generations by slaughtering existing egoists."

      -Georges Sorel

    • also veni, not that I need it since certainly the overlap of bilingual will win the day for me and over 50% speak frecnh in one way or another. but if I really had to hold your feet to the fire I could point out our bet was not date specific and note: "When [most of Canada] was first settled between 1909 and 1912, the population was 95 percent French-speaking.'

      Dude you must NOT be a laywer... I've BUSTED you out nine ways from Sunday already and you only lame attmept was to take out my word NOT and reproduce the rest of my sentence as if I said it without the 'not.' wow clever for a teenager!!!

      No wonder I like vermin, at least he is mostly honest.

    • Veni don't be a faggot stimple ever again or I put you on poo poo list you hear boy? Pulling out the first part of sentance in which i say I NEVER and then just printing the part SAID...
      is so stimple like it does not become you. try to win at least ONE argument on its merits eh? Oh btw it won't be this one.

      hilariously, you COULD have of course said my moose comment was incorrect. too bad for you THAT'S NORT WHAT THE BET WAS and I'm sure even many of the mental midgets here (cf. stimple and grumpy) could *probably* figure out that when i wrote moose speak french is canada i was joking LOL

      In any event I am right in any event that certainly over 50% of population of canada speak some french. Indeed, from below:

      Canada is officially bilingual, and all services provided by the federal government are available in English and French.
      The 2001 census reported that only 1.5 percent of Canadians don�t have at least some ability to speak one of the official languages

      I WIN THE BET REGARDLESS!!! LOL



      Languages

      Canada is officially bilingual, and all services provided by the federal government are available in English and French. The selection of Ottawa as the national capital, located on the Ontario-Qu�bec border, reflects the long-standing political and cultural importance of the two founding nations. The 2001 census reported that only 1.5 percent of Canadians don�t have at least some ability to speak one of the official languages; 18 percent of Canadians are fluently bilingual. The majority speak English: 59 percent reported English as their mother tongue in 2001, while 23 percent reported French and 18 percent a nonofficial language.

    • *My actual line was: 'mstly french speaking moose, sava'

      then you say I SAID OVER 50% OF CANADIAN PEOPLE SPEAK FRENCH. Please compare above to this to see that moose does not equal humans!!!*

      Well, you certainly put me in my place. I expected you to weasel out, but I didn't expect you to decide the way out was to have your sentence taken literally. Just a guess, but I believe the number of animals in Canada that are moose and who speak french is rather low.

      *Though even more hilarious is the fact that even if I HAD wrote humans it is true to say over 50% of canadian people DO speak frenceh since over 1/2 are bilingual English/french.*

      Wrong again.

    • Hilarious! Did you not see my reesponse already making your claim you won this bit A TOTAL JOKE??

      My actual line was: 'mstly french speaking moose, sava'

      then you say I SAID OVER 50% OF CANADIAN PEOPLE SPEAK FRENCH. Please compare above to this to see that moose does not equal humans!!!

      Though even more hilarious is the fact that even if I HAD wrote humans it is true to say over 50% of canadian people DO speak frenceh since over 1/2 are bilingual English/french.

      YOU LOSE EITHER WAY LOL LOL
