Typo of the day:
Bin Laden warms Europe in new audio message
This headline just confirms what we’ve always suspected all all along – Bin Laden is responsible for global warming.
Mark, boubie….thank you for taking the time to point out a typograhical error in the CNN article. Your educational training serves you well Obi-Wan. However, perhaps your intellectual zeal for correct spelling has somehow blinded you to some interesting factoids regarding that very same article. The energy and enthusiasm you possess to somehow rekindle the elusive spelling bee crown fantasy you never won as a child, has perhaps blinded you.
That is why I am here Papi. Let’s review.
4,000 U.S. Soldiers are dead fighting this war, but yet “Al-Ekhlaas” Television Station can find Osama Bin Laden apparently at any time, and U.S Forces are completely stumped—for years.
Billions of dollars spent, and many civilians die. Yet places like Iran seek to arm and train Shiite extemists in Iraq and Afghanistan. And Al Qaeda gets there funding from somewhere, right? Thus, spreading more war and suffering through televising speeches–is that not as bad as giving training and money to a terrorist group.
I think it’s the same.
And more people suffer.
How a television station can choose to participate in propoganda like this is the real story. How do people sponsor terrorism and call it a job?
I guess the Seinfeld reruns weren’t available to Al Ekhlaas?
Canada rocks, Frankie
