"Sometimes we do get good news."

Actually there is quite a bit that gets posted. If you are not already on Calpernia, or Straight Vermonter's ping lists you might want to ask to get put on. They both post and ping to a lot of encouraging and informative articles.

You went away and left me misery

Isn't Spin Boldak where the CIA guy got stomped to death early in the war and then we found the gay American kid Talibaner hiding in a cellar?

Akbar: "Now listen Abdul, we'll walk right up to those devil-worshiping infidel American soldiers, and we will just pull on our little string here, and show them the true meaning of jihad!!

Abdul: "Jumpin jihad Akbar, you are so cool to think of this. I'll just pull my lanyard like thi.....

It is later in the day in a place much warmer than where Akbar and Abdul left, and the conversation went like this:

Akbar: "Abdul, I'll trade you my 72 virgins for a cold glass of water....

Abdul: "I don't need no 72 stinkin' virgins if they all look like my Uncle Abdullah, beard and all!! You suck Akbar!
You and your dumbassed ideas to blow up the Americans. They're still laughing at us up there!!

Along with these investigations, they should start putting out little propaganda notes.

i.e.

"The investigators found it odd that a strong scent of bacon permeated the remains."

We could go alot further, but alas our Society today is too worried about offending those who desire us dead.

Painting a Mosque in pig fat tho sounds like a capital good idea to me.
