I always get Charles Nelson Reilly confused with John C. Reilly.

Thanks, Liberal Larry for clearing up my misguided loyalties!

Experts: Suicide bombers not crazy

Aug. 6, 2005 — It's been said that the suicide bombers who cause the scenes of carnage and chaos relayed on American TV screens and front pages must be driven by a cocktail of religious fanaticism and outright insanity.

However, some experts — including people who are advising the U.S. government on terrorism — said not only are suicide bombers sane, but also that anyone of us, under the right circumstances, could become one.

"Absolutely, this is normal psychology, normal group dynamics," said Clark R. McCauley, a Bryn Mawr College psychology professor who is part of an outside team consulting for the Department of Homeland Security.

"Normal people, given the right circumstances or right set of friends, can become suicide bombers," said Marc Sageman, a forensic psychiatrist and former CIA officer.

...

"Suicide bombers are sane"???!!!

Isn't that a slap in the face of people who lost loved ones in suicide bomb attacks, to tell them that the people who killed them are just as sane as your relatives and friend who were burned alive, jumped to their death or were crushed alive?

Well F*** you McCauley and
F*** you Sageman.

"They are normal people"???!!!

I'll tell you who is not normal, who is not sane; these so called
" experts " ; Clark R. McCauley and Marc Sageman.

Marc Sageman his no sage.
And McCauley has been left home alone without a brain.

My cat has a better understanding of human behavior than these " experts ".

"This is normal psychology, normal group dynamics"???!!!

But how do they explain the fact that no one else is doing it?

Why aren't people of Israel doing it?

Why aren't american soldiers doing it in Iraq?
I mean any american soldier in Iraq knows that he might get killed tomorow or next week and he has acces to truck loads of bombs, but we have ZERO american suicide bombers...Ain't that weird mister expert a** holes ?

How come not one - not ONE - New Yorker drove an airplane into a Mosque after 9/11?

How come not one Londoner went in a Muslim neighborhood to explode and kill himself along with a few dozen muslim women and children?

How do they explain the fact that NO one else but MUSLIMS are doing it ?

"Anyone of us could become one"???!!!

If I was trapped in an elevator with these " expert ", and I had to listen to them, after an hour, I'd have the right "circumstances" to want to beat them senseless
( I probably would not, but don't try me ), but I'd never ever want to kill myself ( or them ) doing it,
NEVER.

Oh...And I blame Bush!

Woah, Blue oyster cult?
They are still around?
They had a couple hit songs in the early 80's, I remember; "Don't fear the reaper", that was a great song.

Friend of USA:
Well, they were around Sturgis a year ago; I don't think all the band members were originals tho'. And while "Don't Fear The Reaper" ia an oldie but goody, I like "Burning For You" by them the best...

Camojack, I love that movie! Cary Grant was great in it! "Just the ladies?"

"On Your Feet, Or On Your Knees" is the best Live album ever.
The first concert I ever went to featured Blue Oyster Cult, Savoy Brown and Mohogany Rush in 1973, at the ripe tender age of **. That`s back when bands were doing the "guitar war" thing.
Of course it was another war started by Bush, but an Outstanding concert.
On a side note: It was also the first time I smoked one of those funny tasting, funny smelling, hand rolled cigarettes.
AGAIN!!! Bush's fault.

Friend of USA

Savoy Brown...Didn't they get their break by winning some tv song contest ?

Mahogany Rush eh, was a canadian band eh, the guitar player eh, Frank Marino eh, was from Montreal I believe eh.

His playing style was similar to Jimi Hendrix, he was pretty good.
I remember listening to Dragon fly while smoking "one of those funny tasting, funny smelling, hand rolled cigarettes."

There was a story, what we would call today an urban legend, going around back then;
Apparantly Frank Marino after being hospitalized for (who knows what) walked out the hospital, just grabbed a guitar and started playing even though he had never touched a guitar in his life.

...

Oh yeah...and I blame Bush.

JannyMae

Yeah, Camojack, they don't make movie stars like this anymore either. Sob. Oh well, thank heaven for DVD'S!!

JannyMae

I may be a bit biased, and after a few (well, okay, maybe MORE than a few) glasses of wine, Bilgeman's post about the French reaction to the downing of this flight is DAMN FUNNY! (August 5, 8:55 P.M.) 'Night all!

(Of course, no doubt, it's ALL Bush's fault!)

They're still pretty good in concert, I must say.

Magic Larry,

In law, treason is the crime of disloyalty to one's nation. A person who betrays the nation of their citizenship and/or reneges on an oath of loyalty and in some way willfully cooperates with an enemy, is considered to be a traitor. Oran's Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as: "...[a]...citizen's actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation]."

I love the Jannae Mae loves Howie scenario you have going on.

Shoodn'''t howee b shoot as a treesonist????

The French, who used only 30 gallons of water last year nationwide, would be more than happy to help us adopt a more European model of conservation, recycling...

Sadly, this could have been reduced by half, had the entire populace not bathed in hopes of winning their Olympic bid. Typically, France takes a much more liberal philosophy toward personal hygeine.

Savoy Brown...Didn't they get their break by winning some tv song contest ?

Savoy Brown.. Wasn't he like totally Aslee Simpson in the 1940s or something?

Mahogany Rush eh, was a canadian band eh, the guitar player eh, Frank Marino eh, was from Montreal I believe eh.

Mahogany Rush, like, was from Detroit or New Jersey, or like one of those places. Dan Marino used to, like, play hockey for the Expos and stuff.

His playing style was similar to Jimi Hendrix, he was pretty good.

He was, like, as good as Britney Spears before she married Ryan Seacrest, and stuff.

I remember listening to Dragon fly while smoking "one of those funny tasting, funny smelling, hand rolled cigarettes."

It was, like, so fly to go to the Kelly Osbourne concert. Did you know her dad used to sing contemporary stuff. Anyway, like, I stole a cigarrette from my grandma, who like has glaucoma, or she's in a coma, or something. Anyway, I took a drag and turned green, got hungry, and kept singing "Puff the Magic Dragon" and stuff.

There was a story, what we would call today an urban legend, going around back then;

No shit, dog, check this out:

Apparantly Frank Marino after being hospitalized for (who knows what) walked out the hospital, just grabbed a guitar and started playing even though he had never touched a guitar in his life.

I was like watching MTV Cribs, y'know? Trying to make a sound investment strategy for my future and stuff? And like Nelly had this bitching bling on his ride. Like two PS2s and an X-Box in his Bently. Da hos be all over that shit, and stuff. I was all like, "Oh no he doesn't." So I went down to the Mall in my Prelude, fart can soundin' phat. I was gonna buy me three X-Boxes and a new wing, but my mom told me to come home for dinner.

Friend of USA, C'mon guy, wouldn't you like to see your family get $25K tax free? That's the going price for a splodey nowasdays.

Friend of USA

What's a sploday?

Friend of USA

I meant splodey, not sploday.

And I blame Bush.

Friend of USA

Che, you are as funny as ever! in fact so good at it that I don't fully get the last part where you talk like a brother from another mother; your dark skin jargon left me in the...err.. dark!

But I made an honest mistake about Savoy Brown; I swear there was a country band with a similar name that won at the talent show Ed McMaan was hosting in the 80's or 90's. I swear.

Che Guevarito

Abu, Thanks for the flattery. That was my best ricer (A kid who puts a "fart can" muffler, neon blacklights, and an 18-inch airfoil on a front-wheel-drive car to make it look fast. Wants peple to think he's Vin Diesel from The Fast and the Furious while driving a Geo Prism.)/shopping-mall-punk impression.

Oh, and I believe I'll pass on the elderberry wine.

"Elderberry Wine" - a song from Elton John's "Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only The Piano Player!" LP.

Some sort of double-secret code words there, Janny Mae?

Gotta watch you folks ALL THE TIME...

What?

JannyMae

heh

Che Guevarito

JannyMae, I thought you had a thing for RuPaul or Adrian Paul, or one of those guys. Don't tell me you like Cary Grant now, too?

How're us guys ever supposed to figure out what women want if they keep changing their minds?

Cr'q't

Howie, I neither clicked on the link nor did I want to. You are doing Mr. Subliminal rather badly.

In order for her to really want to click on it, you bury it in a sentence so that she gets so carried away with your rhetorical hypberbole that she can't help herself.

The fact that you came back to remind her shows that she is once again, smarter than you by light years.

Nice try, but your spelling needs improvement.

Cr'q't

Arsenic and Old Lace is a Halloween must see at our house, along with The House of Usher. Vincent Price is so delectably devilish. If you want to hear him at his very best, rent Disney's "The Great Mouse Detective." He does the voice of Ratigan
and he is truly wonderful. But then, I always had a thing for villain's voices
where Disney movies are concerned. Except for howie. He is still wearing Thumper's bunny suit.

Sawyer Brown

You talkin' bout me?

JannyMae

"JannyMae, I thought you had a thing for RuPaul or Adrian Paul, or one of those guys. Don't tell me you like Cary Grant now, too?"

Che, you must keep track of your women! It's CKCat who introduced me to Adrian Paul! Cary Grant has always been my favorite, but Adrian is quite nice to look at as well. Of course, Adrian has an obvious advantage over Cary Grant, as he is still alive in the flesh, and not just on film/videotape.

"How're us guys ever supposed to figure out what women want if they keep changing their minds?"

Is that a rhetorical question???


Che Guevarito

JannyMae, Yes, that was rhetorical. Mrs. Che is big and mean, and she changes her mind at every opportunity.

Just don't tell her I said that.

Apparently Sigmund Freud once said that women was the only thing he could never understand.
