Sympathetic Asskicking?

Excerpt from the NYT:
***
U.S. Planes Pound Taliban Positions Around Kandahar

The United States military and sympathetic Afghan forces
continued on Saturday to send the Taliban the message that
surrender is the only way out.
***

Now, if they are SOoOOooOo sympathetic, would they really say "surrender is the only way out"?

NAW, they'd be like, listen guys, I know how you feel. Trapped...alone...I understand. why don't you come on out, have some drinks, play rummy...we'll talk about it.

am I right here?

If we were really sympathetic, we would pay attention to their desire to be martyrs and just waste their dumb asses.
They have repeatedly said that they wish to die in battle so they can go to their heaven, who are we to deny them that?

shockingly, I wasn't trying to make any political statement. It just struck me as incredibly funny...

Don't forget the "there, there" pat on the back, and smile... We want to be politically correct too... and avoid any hurt feelings at any cost... oh wait, that sounded like an anti-feminist remark... -=SNIP=-

In this sentence the word sympathetic is use to describe the Afghans fighting with us. Sympathetic to our cause, meaning they agree with our stance...I guess reading comprehension wasnt one of your better subjects in school?

This is like the fifth time someone overly eager to insult the US has made an ignorant blunder in the last week, I mean huge stupid blunders blinded by their hard ons to insult my country…but I guess they are good for humor. Dance stupid monkeys dance.

Knowing Indigo (and speaking for her because I am an ass), she wasn't making a statement, she just thought it was funny in her own weird way (and, might I add, she was the only one both in chat and here to find it funny ).

Euphorbia,

I can assure you that I wasn't "overly eager to insult the US" and "making an ignorant blunder in the last week."

I know what it was supposed to mean.

The first lines that I posted were in a headline that linked to the article, and out of context I thought it was god damned funny so I thought I'd share.

Jesus fucking Christ! No one would mis-understand what that quote was supposed to mean. How the fuck could someone not think that was god damned funny and go and read something political into it. WHat the fuck is wrong with you?

Fucking defensive and God damned stupid.

You stupid fuck.

I didn't WANT to make a political statement. It was just a pun. It was just a pun. WHat the fuck is wrong with you defensive person?

I swear too much. But Jesus, don't assume. Okay, I get it, I've realized NO ONE ELSE ON THE FUCKING PLANET THOUGHT THAT THAT WAS FUNNY BUT ME! STOP RUBBING IT IN.

I'm defensive too. It's okay, euphorbia. We can sit around and insult people and be defensive together.


but just one more excerpt "NAW, they'd be like, listen guys, I know how you feel. Trapped...alone...I understand. why don't you come on out, have some drinks, play rummy...we'll talk about it. "

now come on, how could you take drinking and playing rummy and turn it into something political. THINK, man, THINK!

Okay, now that WAS funny.

After re-reading that and your new post all I can say is sorry, I still stand where I stand and it will be hard for you to back track. I don’t care where you say you work the statement it is wrong in its entirety, and an eagerness to insult this country was the only reasoning I could imagine for such a blind and wrong interpretation in the worse terms possible. If you don’t like me commenting on it take better care in posting and people wont be on you when you folly.


And what the hell would someone who represents them self grammatically as you just did be doing in the fucking Pentagon?
Sweeping the floor I hope, Jesus god I hope.

monkey... in the Pentagon? Making jokes about this effort after your co-workers were blown up? Liar? So many questions...too much apathy to ask them...

Indigo, I think the only way you can retaliate to euphorbia's latest flame is to slap her in the face, russle her hair, and break one of her bra straps.

And then euphorbia, you should come back with scratching Indigo's chest, pulling her hair, and something involving mud.

*faints*

It isn't a grammatical error. It's a pun.

It's a pun.

The lowest form of humor

It was not even a grammatically incorrect pun.

It's supposed to be funny because you know what it is supposed to mean, and then the image it could evoke taken out of context is completely the opposite and then you go "what a silly idea" and move on.

You can accuse me of having a bad sense of humor.

I will take that on gladly.

I admit, I am not funny. I think that dumb things are funny.

I will stop sharing dumb things if you so desire.

but that is it, that is all I can be accused of.

ANd it has nothing to do with the people that were bombed on Sept. 11. There was no referecne to that, it was in no way insulting to their memory.

Your use of the reference is an easy way to stir up emotion with something that really only distantly relates.

It is just a pun on the word sympathetic. That is all. Most people do not think puns are funny. I do. And I thought that the image of a bunch of sympathetic Afghan forces lending a kind ear to the Taliban fighters rather than kicking their asses was really funny. It just gave me a hilarious image in my head that I tried and failed to impart. I wish you could see it. If you could, you'd understand. If you give me a lot of money and a film crew I will direct it as a scene, then you will understand and you will laugh.

but as far as thinking it was a political statement, who gives a fuck. let's just drop it, it was clearly a misunderstanding. I don't think that it reflects on my intelligence. I will say a lot of ACTUAL DUMB shit, and you can get me on that, but not on this one. This one you can only get me for being completely and totally not funny.

Indigo. The only way he’ll ever be happy is if he learns to play the banjo so he can properly serenade Bruce Heffernan.

In the meantime, my mission of the day is to be the first person on TLF to publicly wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! It’s going by fast, eh? Senior citizen discounts are just around the corner!

Amen.

Amazing that after all these years, no one answered your question. So, I shall. And the answer is . . . No.

Indigo. You were never right here. You’ve always been over there.

Next question?

Amen.

No, I wasn’t. I knew you were on the pooper because birds flying by your house were dropping from the sky. Herk, you have to start closing the window when you’re having your me-time, or PETA’ll be campin’ on your doorstep.

Amen.
