Thousands of misty-eyed coeds from Brooklyn Heights to Berkeley are no doubt sniffling into their burqas today. From East Hampton to West Bum****, America-hating Volvo environmentalists and armchair activists are no doubt furiously forwarding e-mails, painting signs and passing petitions protesting the capture of American John Walker, the wretched, dirty traitor who was nabbed fighting for the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Lo, can you hear them? Can you see those bespectacled waifs with poor iron counts and "Milk is Murder" t-shirts, trembling with unexpressed erotic urgings at the CNN clip of the injured Walker's smudged face, concave chest and soulful eyes? (Rather, I should say, those empty, Manson-esque eyes, the vacant glare of the sociopathno matter.)
I also love how, in truest wigger fashion, the beleaguered Walkerafter only a few months in Afghanistanspeaks with a foreign accent, as if he only...learning English...from his...good Taliban peoples. F**** t***. I hope they hang him high, and soon, as a lesson for the rest of those who would turn on this country.
Still, Walker is blessed with the sort of good looks that perverse counterculture heroes are made of, and if the media is not careful they could easily turn him into this war's Timothy McVeighracing the hearts of a thousand Mother Jones readers and making Susan Sontag and Noam Chomsky beam like the proud ideological parents they are.
But then, I really can't wait for the pro-Walker camp to start raising its collective bearded head from the pockmarked foxholes of the shell-shocked radical left. I've still got a few shots in my clip I'd like to unload. The best scenario would be to try Walker on a ship, somewhere out at sea, in one of those swell military tribunals (I would also suggest making his execution a pay-per-view event, with the proceeds going right into the pockets of AOL Time Warner shareholders, but that's hoping for too much).
Unfortunately, such tribunals are reserved for non-U.S. citizens, not homegrown traitors like Walker (or the management of Enron, for example). Still, there is hope. Legal experts are speculating that by joining the Taliban, Walker may have already renounced his U.S. citizenship, and Rear Admiral John Stufflebeem has said that Walker's claim of citizenship "is being respected for the moment." Repeat: "for the moment."
Which brings up a far more pressing and important question: just what the hell kind of name is Stufflebeem?
All too well. Lord, what a bunch of dim-witted copycats!
Or the newscasters who suddenly switch from their New Yahwk accents and say, "Pwwwuuuerrrrrrtoh Rrrrrrreeeeeecoh."
Reminds me of some American expats I knew who became veddy British when around those from the UK.
I realize everyone is caught up with WAR FEVER and wants to put on trial, if not kill everyone that is not prepared to wave the flag madly around their head.
But I think we need to look a little more deeply into the matter. Walker did not join the Taliban on September 11th and he could not possibly run to the Northern Alliance to give himself up a couple of months ago, otherwise I think he would have been shot either by his friends the Taliban or the Northern Alliance.
What should really concern everyone, is how many US Citizen in the USA are supporters of The Taliban and Al Quida.
These are the people you have to really worry about, no uniform, no long beards, no I love the Taliban badges to identify themselves. They could be policeman, firemen, military (Timothy Mcveigh), Nuclear scientists, Airline pilots (does not need to break down the cabin door), fighter pilots (look out nuclear plants), subway station managers, hospital doctors, football stadium security personnel, the list could go on and on. So we should concentrate on what could effect us, not some 20-year-old that decided to become a Muslim and fight for what he believed in.
And before we say he is a traitor for fighting with he Taliban, it was not to long ago that US government and oil businesses were in serious discussion with the Taliban to have the pipeline go through Afghanistan.
But maybe it's OK if its for money, but not OK for ideals that you believe in so strongly you are prepared to die.
(It is sad for him that he had the type of parents he did, but at 20 years of age that is now irrelevant.)
What a absolutely stupid thing to say. They weren't "in serious discussion" to kill American soldiers.
The Oilmen and the US Government were doing deals with the Taliban, and UBL has been there for a few years, so if the deal were successful, they would have been supporting UBL in blowing up WTC.
As with all international deals, and as we can see from the war already, Afghani's are quite prepared to do anything if the price is right, so maybe sweeteners offered were not high enough, and if sweeteners were offered, what happened to them? Were they funneled to Al Quida?
That was then, this is now. The Taliban blew it. They should have gone for the money instead of what was behind Door No. 2.
