Where is your recruitment video, Cena?

Explosion is impressive; description is embarassing.

The narration is solemn with a hint of malice.

war sucks, doesn't it gommorrah?

You know, Islam isn't the problem, but we (Americans) keep acting like it is. Leave Islam out it, it's messy and unfair and totally a red herring to the real problems.
Stars for pretty boom boom.
Soldiers are actual people. Their identities vary. So do their coping mechanisms.
My brother was a 50mm gunner in the Basra Delta. While he has a heart of gold and is one of the most balanced and compassionate people I have ever met in my life, when people are trying to kill you and blow up children and what not you tend to get a little crazy. He once lectured some of the kids on his ship who were mocking an Iraqi crew member, but when it came down to a near death experience one night he turned suddenly and began spouting all kinds of terrible paranoid shit. This is something very difficult for people who lack imagination or a war experience to understand.
Gommorah would like to think he doesn't have this dark side in him, but he most likely does. He probably just directs it at himself and at American soldiers.
No, I would imagine someone like Gommorah is very faux-proud of his meticulously manufactured "dark side" and canvases the Internet with it in a desperate attempt to get someone to recognize him and his cache of South Park material as edgy.
I just think that a more apt phrase would be "You don't need to eat tabbouleh when you can eat shrapnel!"
That's a heart of gold, yes. Hard and yellow.
I think the difference here is that your brother makes a living by killing people, and Gomorrah doesn't. I think this 'dark side' thing you're talking about was edited out of the current edition of Chickenhawks and Cowards.
your brother is a murderer and i hope he pays for his crimes
splatterbabble, if I'm reading into your first comment right, I think you're suggesting socio-economic reasons for the problems coming out of Muslim societies, akin to, say, what Chris Hedges often argues. That if Muslims had the proper means to create prosperity for themselves, the terrorism would lessen, etc.. I think this doesn't get at the heart of the problem. The language Muslims have to talk about the world, the same language used to orientate themselves within the world, that is to say their religion, the Islamic discourse community that is rooted within the Qur'an, explicitly justifies violence. I suggest watching this debate between Sam Harris and Chris Hedges. Harris' example of Jainism I think makes this point quite clear.
Now before someone jumps down my throat, I accept socio-economic conditions as sufficient and perhaps precipitating cause, but in the case of Muslim terrorism, Islam is a necessary cause.
watch out for the induced space in the url.
Actually, I was trying to point out that Weapons of Mass Destruction is the problem. Remember those? WMDs anyone?
Islam isn't compelling people to fight this war, repelling a foreign invader is compelling people to fight this war. I have a really hard time saying "If they weren't Muslim, we wouldn't be fighting" because, really, if Hindus or Eskimos or Aboriginal Australians had oil, I'm sure we would be fighting those people. That's why we're embroiled in a war in Iraq and Afghanistan when we should REALLY be trying to stop the REAL tragedy and terrorism in North Korea and Central Africa.
If you've got oil and you're not as W.A.S.P. as your average American Congressman, you better watch your ass!
The problem with gommorah is that in cherry picking who he wants to try and understand and empathize with, he too is contributing to the evil of the world.

Is that Coach McGuirk narrating?

I'm torn between splatter and sputum for which one deserves these stars
|Rodents of Unusual Size - 2009-11-19 |
5 stars because I would rather hang out with the narrator of this than Gomorrah any day.
yeah but you're really goddamn stupid
No one doubts you. That doesn't disagree with Keefu's point at all; if anything, it reaffirms it.
Wait, I haven't been paying attention the last few months. Do we have a new troll that is sticking it out more than a week? I hope so, Cena is getting fucking boring.
No, ROUS is a liberal. He just hates it when those loudmouths like Gommorrah make all liberals look bad.

YEAH TAKE THAT ASPIRIN FACTORY!!! FUCK YOU ACELYLSALICYLIC ACID!!!!

Obviously this soldier is evil and our resistance against polarizing geopolitical elitism needs to take a stand against evil.
|zatojones - 2009-11-19 |
You can argue that there is no proof of God, but you can't argue that there is no such thing as a JDAM.
|phalsebob - 2009-11-20 |
When are Gommorrah and Cena Mark going to have hot angry troll sex already?
who says they haven't?
