I suppose, as a blogger, I am supposed to be writing thousand word essays how the terror arrests proves or disproves that Chimpy McHitlerBurton’s war on terror is or is not a success, proves or disproves Kerry was right, proves or disproves the Republicans are weak/stron on terror. I don’t have it in me. Check memeorandum.
I did, however, have one question. Whatever became of the students who landed in the US and got lost. Was that more nothing made into something, or do we still not know what happened there?
Speaking of old Chimpy, now that the RNC has been caught boasting a photoshopped picture of Howard Dean in a Hitler mustache on their very own website (gee, remember the outcry over MoveOn and ‘their’ Hitler ad?), and with the President describing cells of anti-government religious extremists as ‘fascists,’ can we please stop pretending it’s the angry leftists who can’t stop calling people they disagree with Nazis?
I believe something like 8 of those students have been arrested.
Last I read (yesterday) they were turning up and had been found to be up to ….. nothing in particular.
I am not sure if they were strip searched for Sparkletts bottles, though.
More Nazi analogies from wild-eyed leftists:

six of 11 students arrested
Personally I loved the one where they arrested the guys down in Florida a month or two ago via a sting operation. Apparently they went to an FBI officer looking to buy guns, bombs and terrorist uniforms.

That whole case is starting to sound like an Owen Wilson movie.
I believe Fox News reported a few days ago that the students had missed their connecting flight when they came in from Egypt, and, being young students in a foreign country, some went to relatives’ houses and others went to party or whatever. It doesn’t appear to have been a Mohammend Atta moment, in other words, although, as they say, hindsight is 20/20.
If they’re from Egypt, they were probably staying at the Luxor in Las Vegas, smoking Camels and playing in the sand.
And walking. Walking like an Egy…nevermind.
Lieberman’s a leftist? Could have fooled me…
He is Ken Mehlman’s personal pwned leftist!
Or, “leftyist” as Darrell would say.
Some bloggers dash off 3,000 word essays based on little more than their own bile; brevity is appreciated.
John, it’s hard to take you seriously when you use terms like “Chimpy McHitlerBurton.” The only people who describe Bush like this are supporters of the current administration attempting to ridicule those who don’t worship him.
They hate us for our freedom?
I think “Bush” is a dirty word already. Just call him by name.
Caricatures are unnecessary at this point.
Just imagine, if you will, that the police’s Muslim sources in London or Pakistan had chanced upon a little if what Little Green Footballs etc, says about “ragheads” in general.
Some phone calls may have never been made. A lot of people might now be dead.
There is a lesson here somewhere.
Balderdash. Mr. C’s usual obsequious depictions of the leader of such an obtuse kakistrocracy makes for heady fodder for ridicule and derision. Here, however, the application of a rather ubiquitous moniker for the aforementioned decider has a rather comical effect, and thus has welcome ramifications on how yours truly will view the scratchings of Mr. C in the future.
Props to the Prof for projecting such pointed pontifications on the pinhead President.
Wow, shocking. Resident Moonbat “doesn’t have it in him”. After asking the “rhetorical” questions, he doesn’t have the intestinal fortitude to answer the questions. I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that we all know what the answers are. Chimpy McBushHaliburton indeed. More from the parody that once was a semi informative blog.
Quite sad indeed that my initial reading of this post made me think it was written by Tim. I think that just about clinches it – the conversion is complete.
Very sad. We’re weeping here.
Yeah Sherard. That “By: John Cole” part at the top of the post is pretty confusing. And boo hoo for you. Maybe you’re on the wrong side here.
At least John’s opinion has evolved. Has yours? (Rhetorical question: I don’t really care.)
If John was indeed asking “rhetorical” questions, it’s kind of silly for you to expect him to answer them himself. Rhetorical questions are supposed to get you to think for yourself if possible.
In case you didn’t already know, the root of “rhetorical” is “rhetor” which is latin for “teacher.” (Interestingly “rectum” means virtue!)
Rhetorical questions are not what Rumsfeld does for example. He asks questions and answers them himself. Usually stupid answers to stupid questions. (example: Am I an idiot? You bet!) What an annoying oratory style that is!
Thus endeth the lesson. ;-)
Have a great weekend everybody!
Let me cry long, bitter tears for you, Sherard.
I know it must be hellish for you to have to read all of this, especially since there is obviously someone holding a gun to the heads of you and everyone you hold dear.
Useless manipulative war, opportunities for self-serving political regimes to practice terror and call it something else, ill advised adventures that make the warriors less safe and not more, apparently not as popular as it used to be.
Maybe the time has passed when hubristic thinking and egocentric delusions that the world can be controlled at the end of a gunbarrel …..
We can only hope. Almost a 30 point approval drop in a month. A point a day.
Truly mind-boggling account of the collosal failure of our airport security measures
When $5b worth of security can reportedly be foiled with a sports drink bottle, maybe it’s time to ask “Who the fuck is in charge here?”
No wonder George Bush talks like a frightened old woman about people who “want to destroy us.” He apparently knows how powerless we are to stop them.
With his government in charge, I mean. With a real government, maybe we’d be safer?
As the “crisis” unfolded and the official rhetoric was all about keeping you fearful enough to vote for Republicans, the president and his counterpart in Britain, where the center of the crisis is, remained on vacation.
Blair in the Carribbean, and Bush at the ranch.
But remember that “stark reminder.”
You could die from this.
While I apparently cannot type “stark” without making a typo, I am curious to know how many times, between Thursday and today’s “Saturday Radio Address” the little alcoholic we call President has used the term “stark reminder?”
See, that’s the thing. It’s not just a reminder. It’s a Stark Reminder.
MInd you, it comes from a surveillance operation that has had these Islamic Fascist conspirators on a leash for a year now (I doubt if any of these guys have taken a shit in months that hasn’t been logged by Scotland Yard) … and made public just now, when they decided the game had gone on long enough … but it’s STARK.
Extra credit: I used the the terms “taken a shit” and “logged” in the same sentence.
Let’s turn on CNN right now … oh look, Pat Buchanan and some talking CNN heads are chatting about the “crisis”.
But listen …. the chat is all about politics. Who gets the most buzz out of this “crisis” — Democrats, or Republicans? Who gets the bump? Who gets hurt by it.
See, this “crisis” is so real and so STARK and so dangerous to you that the main topic of conversation in Washington — since LAST WEEKEND long before you ever heard about the “crisis” — has been about how to MAKE POLITICAL HAY out of the goddam fucking thing.
That’s right, your president, on vacation at the ranch, has been sitting around planning how to get political advantage out of this “crisis” that is a “stark reminder” — not a boring, ORDINARY reminder — about the danger of terrorism.
Remember this week the next time you hear a lying cocksucker Republican talk about “politicizing” the “War on Terror.”
The Other Steve
I think we should all vote for Republicans.
Cause if the Democrats win in 2006, these terrorists won’t try to attack us because they don’t want ot hurt their friends.
I read an article the other day about one of the students.
He was tyring to use plane ticket from NEw York to Montana to fly from Chicago to Montana. He ended up yelling at the ticket clerk or whatever and got arrested.
The 11 students were originally here to go to school in montana
I certainly don’t mind that Homeland Security is trying to protect our freedoms by taking them away. What good is having nice clean hair, or clean teeth, if you’re dead?
You lefties just don’t have a clue about the danger we face! These terrorists have no uniforms, and come from all over the Middle East! They clearly hate us for our feedoms! Sure, they might not have an army…or an air force…or any sort of large weapons….but do you know how much damage one person can do with just a bottle of soda and Mentos?? Sheez. We’re THIS CLOSE to being taken over and being declared part of the Caliphate!
If you lefties aren’t as shit scared as the rest of us, you just aren’t American. I’m gonna go now and watch “This Week in War” on CNN, because we are at WAR…every damn week.
I saw this headline on MSNBC today:
NBC NEWS: US Pressured UK Authorities To Bust Suspects Sooner
Are you surprised? I’m not.
Hunter’s piece at DKos deserves a complete read, but for me, this was the money quote.
Who’s weak on defense? The cocksuckers who think “defense” is all about talking a good game, and then failing to do the job …. and then blaming somebody else.
I don’t even have to tell you who they are.
