(The following is a column which appeared on my old web site, www.spatulacitybbs.com, on September 11th, 2001.  It is re-posted now in remembrance of then.

This will very likely be the last time this ever gets posted, as I do intend to close Spatula City sometime next year.)

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

Bambi’s wanting to go toss some grenades (I’m working on my understatement.  How do you like it?) at Syria.

If there were a vote RightAboutNow™, he’d get his ass handed him.

The Praetor of the Ronulan Empire (aka Ron Paul), says it would be an “historic defeat”.

I’d call it Congress just doing its fucking job.  And long-effing-overdue, truth be told.

Those who get at least a portion of their news from one of the network news shows have become accustomed to seeing the obligatory former military “analyst”  give his thoughts. While I really do not wish to denigrate these guys, most of them appear to be men who did a decent job while serving, but really did not distinguish themselves.

The same cannot be said for General Patrick Brady, in Vietnam, he had among the most dangerous of jobs an Army helicopter pilot could have. As a Dustoff pilot. General Brady flew unarmed helicopters into the thick of battle.His job was to evacuate the wounded, and for his service General Brady was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

People may not agree with what he says, or with his politics, but General Brady has earned the right to be taken seriously. This piece is well worth the read.

I’m sorry, Vicar or not, if I were In Afghanistan, and this Rule came down, I would absolutely have to break it!

ABC News has broken the news (confirmed by Roto-Reuters) that NATO forces have killed Moammar Qaddafi.

More later, possibly.

UPDATE:  The Picture™ is below the fold, for those of you who want to look (it ain’t pretty, you’ve been warned)…

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

(Crossposted to the Rott – this was just too damned good not to share.)

(Hat tip Drudge – although I tend to wonder if he’d really want it, y’know?)

They use the corner of their huts as personal toilets.

They wipe their asses…with their hands.

They view women as less valuable than farm animals – in fact, they’d rather have sex with the animals.

They are the Most Offensive Creatures On The Face Of The Earth™

And they are offended…when they hear you fart.

(No, I’m not making this up. Or to be more succinct – I shit you not.)

So here’s the news: audible farting has been banned for some Marines downrange because it offends the Afghans.

I know there are many things in the Afghan culture that don’t seem normal to Americans and it’s hard to spend seven months working in someone else’s back yard. Still, the Marines I saw downrange are doing a pretty good job at trying to do the right thing around the Afghans.

They’re not supposed to cuss because it could be misunderstood (that one goes out the window a lot). And they stay away from talking about politics, religion or girls because those topics could escalate into major disagreements (they can’t communicate anyway because of the language barrier).

But farting? That’s practically a sport. Ok, it’s not soccer, but a good contest could open the door for cross-cultural exchanges, jokes and other gallows humor.

So, for all Marines getting ready to go downwind, I mean downrange, be forewarned — you may have to hold it in… at least until you get back to your hooch where you can loudly crop dust your friends.

Doesn’t that just rip you a new one?

OTOH, I think we’ve found a way to rid ourselves of Bawney Fwank…

As you know by now, we lost 30 troops (over 20 of them Navy SEALS) yesterday in Afghanistan.  The Realm™ mourns these heroic servicemen, and sends its condolences to their families.

Patterico is floating the idea that Vice Perpetrator BiteMe, not being able to keep his “big fucking” piehole shut about it, should somehow be held responsible.

Not that I’d necessarily mind seeing Captain Gaffetastic’s skanky blowhole (either of them) sewed shut with bamboo wire, but I tend to discount this theory, and here’s why:

If anyone in Al-Obambi were ever to have been conclusively tied to such an event as this…it would be over.  And I mean.  Fucking.  Over.

You wouldn’t even have to wait for the gathering of the torches & pitchforks.  The military would turn on them so fast it’d make your head spin.

Remember the Lame Plame Blame Game™?  The outrage amongst Demoscum when analyst-nee-agent-wannabe Val Plame was supposedly “outed”?  Multiply that by a factor of 100,000, and then add…well, draw your own conclusions there.

They’re stupid, yes – but they’re not that  stupid.

Are they?

Ron Paul-the-Tard (not to be confused with a Ron Paultard) has stated that he would not ordered SEAL Team Six to kill Osama bin Laden.

G’night Ronni, m’girl – sorry to see you kill your Presidential aspirations before you’d even announced.

Well, not really – but still…uh…no, not really.

_____________________________________________________





And it came from this Patterico thread:

The SEALs killed Bin Laden and we got the 72 versions.

Oh.  Emm.  Eff.  Gee.

Here is what one of our Lutheran pastors had to say on the death of the world’s most wanted terrorist.

It is a good article, but this is the important part:

Do we rejoice in the death of a wicked man, who from every human perspective, is facing now nothing but eternal torment and punishment in hell? No, of course not. Do we however rejoice that justice was carried out and a man who wished to kill us all is now dead? Yes, of course we do. This “no” and “yes” response is incapable of being understood without the doctrine of vocation and the two kingdoms clearly in view.

SUCK IT, AL-QAIDA!!!

Reports are coming in that the 21:30 CT Presidential speech is going to report that Osama Bin Laden has been killed.

UPDATE 21:47 CT — Pentagon officials via Fox News are stating that the Al Queda leader was killed one week ago in a US military bombing. DNA testing on the body is what was the delay in confirmation was for. No news if he was killed in Afghanistan or Pakistan.

UPDATE 22:10 CT — AP reports that he was killed in a compound in Islamabad, Pakistan.

UPDATE 22:28 CT — Reports on Fox News are saying that it was a covert US ground operation in Pakistan that took out Bin Laden and that’s how the body was retrieved for DNA testing.

What should this tell the rest of the world? Plain and simple. We.WILL.FIND.YOU!!!!!

UPDATE 22:35 CT — President is now commenting on the news.

UPDATE 10:00 5/2/2011 — Please continue to pray for those members of our military all across the globe, but especially those still in harms way in Pakistan and Afghanistan. As you can imagine, this is GOING to cause retaliation strikes by just about every extremist anti-American group in the region.
