  1. The real pronunciation below,

    “Rag Heads can kiss my ass alla ab-dee-RAH’-mahn shayk moh-HAH’-mud”

  2. I’m surprised they gave him a trial at all here in the former USA. That Bill of Rights thing is sooooo pre-9/11… or at least pre-2012 (when the NDAA eliminated the government’s recognition of due process rights).

    Also: killing soldiers isn’t terrorism; in this case, it would have been guerrilla warfare. “Terrorism” means the deliberate killing of random, unarmed, uninvolved civilians — and ONLY civilians — for political purposes. That applies to either side of any conflict. The Zionists waging the “War on Terror” have been stretching the definition of “terrorism” to apply to any violence they don’t approve of.
