and another thing...
about the article i linked earlier (which i got from allah), did anybody actually expect this to do any good for anything? the arab street is never going to love us, and i'm sure that there are probably plenty of folks over there that wanted an apology, got it, and still hate us. like in the conversation i posted earlier, you're never going to make these people happy, we can sit around and apologize for the crusades and for them getting kicked out of spain and for having better looking women and everything else, they're still going to hate us. all the bootlicking and asskissing and pandering isn't going to get us anywhere. unless we make fundamentalist islam the state enforced religion and declare war on israel, a good many of them are going to continue to hate us. do i care? no. as long as they sit down and shut up, they can hate me all they want. as long as they understand the consequences of screwing with america (i.e. death, or worse, having a giiiiirrrrrlllll pointing at your pee pee and laughing), they can go on hating me until the day they die, dosen't bother me a bit.

to paraphrase hillary clinton, you don't have to love us, you just have to fall in line.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
