They were easy to pick out because they wore redcoats.

Good post. For future reference, you’re allowed to excerpt 300 words from articles. That’s usually enough to give readers the gist of what the article is about.

I only mention this because of the last dangling sentence of your post.

Nope, no more than the brown, black or yellow ones do.

LOL - they're all in for a hugh and series disappointment.

The nation of Islam knows no ethnicity. It is an allegiance to the supremacist political ideology of Islam. And it is an empire.

There is a concept of “muslim territories”. The 2004 satirival map showing the US as “Jesusland” was wrong. Jesus’ message knows no borders nor system of legal governance.

All followers of Islam bow to the capital 5 times a day every day. No non-muslims may enter (under penalty of death).

This is why it is wrong for liberals to say that this is a “xenophobic” opposition to Islam. Ethnicity and local have nothing to do with the opposition. It is an opposition against theocratic rule by a dead warlord’s cult.

I’m disgusted that the media would highlight their skincolor in this news item. It’s going to cause a backlash against white Britons.

Darned shame they couldn't have been captured and tortured, but I guess you can't have everything.

Eventually those AlQaida pukes will figure out untanned skin shows up against those dark backgrounds and makes targeting easy.

But don't forget, to Islam once a Muslim ,ALWAYS a MUSLIM!

That is why I am afraid to move back to Israel with my family, my wife is a convert from Islam and if her relatives over in the Palestinian areas ever found out they would come after her and our children, and I don't want my kids to be harassed like that.

Also ANY land that Muslims have EVER occupied they consider that Muslim Land as well, that is why they lay claim to parts of Europe from Tours to Vienna!and India too!

Would they want to be seen in such a traditionally British costume? They’d probably be ashamed.

Islam is like that Killer virus in that movie from a few years back. 28 Days Later. What a gutter religion.

But don't forget, to Islam once a Muslim ,ALWAYS a MUSLIM!

To Jim Jones, once a member of People's Temple, always a member.

To the Church of Scientology...

To The Children of God...

To any of a number of cults.

Our founding fathers recognized an INALIENABLE right to choose your faith. And CHANGE your mind.

We hear often about how there are a billion muslims in the world. Millions upon milions had no choice under penalty of law in how they worship (or don't).

GENIUS!You hit the nail on the head, here in America we have the Ability to Change our minds!!!!!

Even back in the 90's in France where Leena (My wife) was growing up, you couldn't change from Islam to any other religion, not the area she grew up in!

We as Human Beings have the ability to makes Choices, It was My wife's decision's to leave Islam, I didn't force her, She WANTED TOO!!! I mean when I met her, Dated her, and Proposed to her she was still a Muslim, and if she hadn't converted I STILL would have married her! Because I Love her, and that is the right of all Humans, to love your fellow man (or woman in my case!) Not to be forced into it!

"Two white British men who were fighting alongside Al Qaeda militants in Pakistan have been killed in a drone attack, it was reported last night."

They're the same color as their fellow targets now, charcoal black.

The two men are believed to have been 'white converts' to Al Qaeda who changed their British names to Islamic ones after becoming radicalised.

Radicalized then carbonized.

They died five days ago when a Hellfire missile was fired from a remote controlled American drone in the town of Datta Khel. If the reports are confirmed, the two men would be the first white British converts to have been killed in the area.

The Mail seems awfully concerned with the former skin color of the deceased traitors.

The militants were aged 48 and 25 and had been using the pseudonyms Abu Bakr and Mansoor Ahmed. It is believed one of the men was originally called Steve.

He is now known as "remains, cremated, 6.5 kilograms."

They were in a vehicle with two other fighters when they were hit by the missile. It is not known whether they were crossing the border into Afghanistan.

They were definitely crossing the border into Hell (which is very close to the NWFP)

Details of their deaths are slowly emerging following the missile strike on the Pakistan and Afghanistan borders. It was reported that the pair had entered the area last year and had travelled to north Waziristan in the lawless tribal belt bordering Afghanistan to join Al Qaeda.

No triumphal homecoming, Michael Moore interviews, speaking tours or chubby blondes for these two now.

Congratulations to all the zappers and targeteers. Well done.
