18 Taliban Killed by AOSHQ Jokes, Hellfire Missiles From Predator Drones

Posted on | October 2, 2010 | 12 Comments

But mainly the Hellfire missiles:

Two U.S. drone attacks killed 18 militants in Pakistan on Saturday, intelligence officials said, after recent NATO incursions raised tensions with an ally critical to Washington’s war effort in Afghanistan.
The United States has escalated pilotless drone aircraft missile strikes against al Qaeda-linked militants in Pakistan’s northwest, with 21 attacks in September alone, the highest number in a single month on record.

Thanks for loaning me the joke, Ace. I’d let you borrow one of mine, but I’m not one of those people “known primarily for their funny work.”

Speaking of AOSHQ, Drew M. brings us this final score:

Network Running Jews 1
Rick Sanchez 0

And a reminder to our Zionist Media Overlords: I’m available.

    Maybe Allah will not link to the Taliban.

    Now that would show them.

    Maybe this is heaven? Note that there are not any Taliban types there.

    Stacy, I love you like a brother, so I have to tell you:

    Stop with the pity party already. You are loved and appreciated in your corner of the blogosphere. This wailing and gnashing of teeth is unseemly, and will only serve to further this situation you tell yourself you’re in.

    Stacy, keep doing what you are doing.

    You need the bumper on your next car like the one I rigged up while working a construction project. My pickup lost its bumpers, so I had some welders cut me a section of double flange for front and back and weld it on. They did it for $20 and a case of beer. Heavy, but trust me, definitely deer resistant. That and a brush guard will make you the winner in any future whitetail encounter.

    As you already know, your “jokes” are usually too cutting to be true humor. But I have the same problem most days, so I can relate.

    I think you have the same problem that way that I do. My role model has always been Dynsdale Piranha’s brother Doug. “I’ve seen grown men rip their own heads off rather than talk to Doug.” (Yeah, it’s Monty Python, and it’s on You Tube.)

    Whatever. You are doing good, and the comments are working again, which is also good.

    Anything that does not kill us makes stronger. OTOH, it may make us a good bit harder to get along with for a month or two. So it goes. We persevere.

    Stacy’s just trying to build a “revenge of the nerds” dynamic, guys. Fear not — in no time at all everybody at the “cool table” will be wondering why the “uncool table” is so much more popular.

    I, of course, prefer a table all to myself…
