Little Booms, Feeling UN-Loved, Angry SEALS, Amorous Elephants

Arafathead Is At It Again
Israel, long known for not putting up with people's crap, has been raiding the Gaza strip to zap terrorists firing rockets into Israeli communities. The Israelis have some delightful footage of Palestinians using UN ambulances to transport weapons. No statement of outrage from Kofi Annan about his noble organization's resources being comandeered for military purposes but I'm sure it must be coming any day now. Yeah, right. Anyway, Arafat-head has given us a truly memorable quote:
"These rockets the Israelis are talking about have not killed anyone ... and only make noise."
Look, we have noisemakers too! Would you like the staccato ripple of a cluster bomb, roaring whoosh of napalm or maybe one really big MOAB?

Love Me...PLEASE!

Damn good parody of Kerry's internally self-contradicting statement that while he was all for pre-emptive military action it had to pass the "global test." The test reminds me of the ever-delightful, The Top 100 Things I'd Do If I Ever Became An Evil Overlord.

RULE 1: Don't Piss Off the Trained Killers
Kerry made the comment during the debate that GWB 2.0 had "outsourced" the battle of Tora Bora to Afghan soldiers. Although I could opine at length about this, and I may yet, I would like to present snippets of comments from a Green Beret and a Navy SEAL, respectively:
Our Special Forces soldiers in Afghanistan accomplished in weeks, what Alexander the Great and the Soviet Union could not accomplish in years. John Kerry is an idiot.

and
Wrong answer, bitch!

So we have the emotions of disdain and hostile contempt being displayed by the troops who are the heart and soul of the anti-terror forces. My question is how does Kerry expect to serve as commander and chief when he inspires such animosity among the men he's supposed to send into harm's way? This has been my single greatest complaint about Kerry is that he threatens to demoralize the troops by compromising the war on terror to make nice with people who aren't very nice.

NOTE: I apologize for the lack of a link for these quotes. They come from The Kerry Spot at NRO. The nature of that forum prohibits proper linking as the articles are continually updated and scroll off into oblivion without archiving.

HUMOROUS ASIDE: Also for The Kerry Spot, which provided a link:
New research by Burke's Peerage reveals that Mr. Kerry is the only presidential candidate in U.S. history who has genealogical descent from Muslims, Jews and Christians...Mr. Kerry is kinsman of the Shi'ite shahs of Persia (the most famous was Shah Abbas I, who reigned from 1587 to 1629), as well as the Muslim kings of Tunisia, all of whom — Democratic presidential nominee included — descend from the prophet Muhammad.
I guess this explains the upsurge in support from radical Islamicists. I don't know which would be scarier: the possibility that it's fabricate to make Kerry more appealing or it's true and people might actually think it means something. It defintiely qualifies as weird.

And You Thought the Monkey Cage Was Bad!
Found this surfing the web. It comes from back in 2003 but I just gotta post this before I lose the link.

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thai community groups wanted to use a logo featuring two elephants having sex for next year's World AIDS conference in Bangkok but the plan was criticized by health authorities because the bull was not using a condom. [By all means don't let THAT stop you!]

"The logo fails to convey any meaning," Dr Sombat Tanprasertsuk of the Thai government's disease control department was quoted as saying in the Nation newspaper on Tuesday. "There is only one message which people will get: that community workers are obsessed with sex. And it doesn't show the male elephant wearing a condom." [I see a bureaucrat somewhere in Thailand pouring over sketches saying, "I like the playfulness in this one but the angles on this other one really shows the essential nature of the condom."]

The official logo for the meeting depicts three elephants standing in line. [Well of course it all makes perfect sense now--I think] Elephants are Thailand's national symbol.


Please dear God, is it times for the Apocalypse yet? Of course I would have been hesistant to even hold an AIDS conference in a city named Bangkok because its name begs titters and giggles from the immature...hee-hee.
