a sentance using the term "copperhead fedayeen"

another similarity between the american press (and the far left) and the fedayeen, beyond the fact that they all prefer saddam to bush and have a strong distrust and dislike for the american military, they are all hated by our military. just like copperheads. and when confronted with a real military type in an aggressive manner, they run and hide for fear of having their asses kicked, which is an exceedingly wise move as most have been soundly beaten by a soldier at one point or another. just like copperhead snakes. so, three things that the american military hates and beats the crap out of every chance they get: the fedayeen, the media and radical left, and copperheads. far left copperhead fedayeen press is redundant, so we eliminate the repetitive parts and, voila, copperhead fedayeen.

as a technical note, i would define fedayeen somewhat differently, as to my understanding, the fedayeen were saddam's elite troops, similar (in position only, obviously) to the way that army rangers or spec ops would be compared to us lowly rank-and-file troops. it isn't, as far as i know, a term used widely in the muslim world as a denotation of respect, in fact, most of the hardcore islamists would hate the fedayeen, as the only authority they respected and whose only work they did was saddam, not allah. but i could be mistaken on this, my research of the finer points of islamic militicism would be considered...well, i'm not sure what the term is, i recognize the traditional tatoos of fedayeen, and know that they are saddam's hardcore loyalits so you're probably better off shooting first and asking questions afterward, i had assumed there was no wider connection on this to the world outside iraq, but i could be wrong.

and either way, it's a semantic point, the overall thrust of the term remains the same.


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.
