Gut Rumbles

read the headline...

...and then read the article. I don't believe that the two actually go together. (It's CNN--what else do you expect?)

But that's just MY humble opinion. I could be wrong, because I've been watching the History Channel for the past couple of days and they've had documentaries about the Holocaust and Cambodia. That stuff probably polluted my mind about the idea of torture.

I kinda got the impression that torture involved inflicting severe physical pain on people and killing them by the millions. I watch shows like that and I have a difficult time working myself into a fit of righteous indignation even if someone acutally "abused" the Koran. That's a far cry from torture to me, especially when I look at what the ACLU and our own government does to the Bible in our country today.

Bejus! I've been treated worse by football coaches than these "detainees" have been by their allegedly brutal guards. Besides... why should we bend over backward to be sensitive to terrorists? Fuck them AND their religion of "peace."

We're not the ones beheading hostages and blowing up car bombs in the middle of civilian populations. THEY do that crap. Amnesty International can kiss my Cracker ass, too. They ignore REAL torture and genocide while finding nits to pick with the USA. Screw 'em. I believe that we have been remarkably restrained in the way we have handled the prisoners, especially after the impact of 9/11 on this country.

Name one other nation on the face of this planet that would have done the same.

Actually it's the AP.

The writer, Robert Burns, pissed me off with his partisan hack attacks on Bush during the runup to the election.

This piece of shit is anti-Bush and anti-American. All in the name of "news", of course. Just read his drivel if you can stand it. He's as bad or worse than the AP asshole who wrote the false story about the crowd booing at a Bush rally when W announced that Slick Willy was in the hospital.

It's a damn shame that he's sharing the name of the great Scottish poet. He wouldn't make a pimple on the Bard's ass.

Burns may have written the article, but CNN put the headline on it. THAT'S my point.

Just one more reason I get my news from the net...and not just from the mainstream media. These people don't have a clue.

One definition of "torture" could be written as: a. inflicting mental and psychic pain on readers of MSM news by way of passing off fiction and distorted views as "news"b. insulting intelligence of readers of MSM news day in and day out until they begin to believe the bullshit and their brains melt (ref: 1984 by Orwell)c. passing off Teddy Kennedy as a functioning statesman, thereby allowing him to meddle in the business of Government, with dire consequences (see also Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi)d. denying terrorists "martyrdom", thereby denying us peace of mind. Terrorists should be martyred as soon as possible after capture, and NOT by lethal injection.I'm becoming sorely pissed off at the way the whole situation is going down. We are at war with most of Islam, whether the moonbats like it or not, and someday it will be in the streets of the USA unless the Congress gets off its vote-pandering ass, and the idiots who put many of them there develop intelligence.Europe, bless its pot-smoking ass, is already on a speed-trip in that direction.

The media figures that most Americans don't pay any attention to history, and how brutal humanity is truely capable of behaving (bet you never heard about how back in the 1980s, Saddam's prison guards "interrogated" a man by forcing him to watch 12 guards rape his 5-month pregnant wife. He still wouldn't talk, so they took a knife, cut her stomach open, pulled the baby out, and the mother and child died within minutes. He still wouldn't talk, so they cut his throat with the same knife.

This took place at Abu Ghraib roughly 20 years ago, similar shit was probably happening under Saddam little more than 4 years ago, but no doubt the actions of Ms. England and her friends were FAR worse, no?

I think it's an AP headline. It's the same one at Iwon, Boston Globe, ABC, Washington Post and the Grauniad. Of course, I see a pattern here too in the publications using it.

I googled the headline and that was the result. I'm too lazy to link all of 'em.

France woulda shone more restraint.
Given the terrorists a written apology, too.

Actually we have many copies of the Koran where I work. There is a copy in every bathroom stall. It makes good toilet paper. Its pretty good at swatting the crotch critters that you see on some toilets. If all else fails, you can use a page to roll a fatty. It smokes pretty good although it is a little harsh. I say we all go on TV and burn a copy of the Koran like the sand niggers burn our flag. See what the fucktards think about that. In Bejus name, Amen.

Nah, Assrot, that might not be such a good idea, since Blair's helping us in Iraq and all. The Muslims in London alone would get so damned pissed, and not be able to hold their rage in long enough to hijack planes and fly them over to the States, that they'd all get out their reserve dynamite, bomb belts, the works, and decimate half the city.

Or, if you wanted every major city in the US to simutaniously explode within two hours, you could ask a couple of our countless porn stars to go hardcore on a bed made of Korans, and then broadcast uncensored footage of it on national television.
