The pathetic thing about this is that much of America will accept the fake pictures, from a terrorist organization, without question.

I've often thought that myself. Who but another one of them could stand to kiss those filthy Koranimals? They're always raping women, and if I were one they raped, I'd tell them "rape me if you must, but please don't kiss me." LOL

I read the article, yet still I find it incredulous. But not surprising. Pictures of before and after the bombings in Southern Lebonan should also be shown. You'd see not much difference there really.
Either they think we're really stupid or they are really stupid.
Perhaps the return of Baghdad Bob?
Alright, I AM easily amused.

I'm sure Reuters ran with the story later picked up by the NYT only then to be breathlessly reported by Katie Couric.

In other news, Hezbo and the Lebanese Red Cross claim that Israel shot missles into an ambulence, leaving a hole in the top that looks suspiciously like an air vent was removed from that same spot.

The hull in question was the decommissioned, HMAS Torrens, a River-class (variant of the British Leander-class) destroyer escort that served in the Royal Australian Navy from 1971 to 1998. Following decommissioning, the Torrens was sunk in an exercise by the Collins-class submarine, HMAS Farncomb on 14th July, 1999.

It's basically a way of describing a particular design of ship - all ships of a particular design being of the same class.

It is often the name of the first ship (the 'lead ship') of a particular design, but not always. In the case of the River-class, the six ships of the class were named after major Australian rivers - the city of Adelaide, capital of the state of South Australia lies on the River Torrens.

The river Torrens isn't much of a river. Down here we'd call it a creek, but then, Aussies probably think our deserts are just big sand boxes!
