Chicken Sh&ts and the Honor of Islam

Rebels Dressed as Women Attack Iraqi Police Station
BAGHDAD, Iraq, Saturday, Nov. 5 – Insurgent attacks across central Iraq, including one in which the guerrillas disguised themselves as women, left at least 16 dead on Friday as Shiite Arabs across the country began celebrating the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
In the deadliest assault, insurgents dressed in women’s clothing attacked a police checkpoint in the town of Buhriz, 35 miles north of Baghdad, killing at least 6 police officers and wounding at least 10 others, American and Iraqi officials said. The guerrillas were armed with Kalashnikov rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars, and pulled up in five cars, an Interior Ministry official said. The police officers killed at least two of the gunmen, he added.

Pretty convenient, that “sense of moral superiority to everything around them, including women”: you get to keep your women all swathed up in billowing cloth. Who the hell knows who’s under those miles of bedsheets? Thank God for democracy and the equality of the sexes. They’d never get away with such bold, manly acts here. We’d see through it in a heartbeat.

    I didn’t realize Bingley was that short. And Ken, the quiet confidence you project….way to go man.

    Though reprehensible, it’s not a dumb tactic from an insurgent’s point of view.
    Now we, the good guys, have to be especially vigilant about women, stopping them and ensuring that they are not insurgents. This is sure to arouse the anger of the animals of Islam that aren’t insurgents who think that women are property and not to be looked at by men who are not husbands or close family.
    If their intent is to cause resentment towards their conquerers, this is sure to help that cause.

    Watch out for flying purses, Dave.
    Al-Jazeera will be there to film security forces searching Islamic women. With a telescopic lens at a safe distance.

    Yeah, you’re right Rob. But it was just sitting there….I couldn’t help myself.

    More proof that Islam is just an excuse for these tossers. If they worshipped tree frogs or some jive they’d have stylized tree frog iconography with berets and rifles and moderne aircraft flying overhead.
    Seriously, on the one had there are fatwahs all the hell over the place about not doing anything at all remotely like the infidels, even to the point of changing the rules of common sports, but turning around and cross-dressing to hide one’s intent to launch sneak-attacks on fellow Iraqis? That’s cool, man.
    Sun Tzu himself would throw up his hands on this one and just call them bonkers.

    If a body meets a body,
    Comin’ through the rye.
    If you DARE to touch my body,
    I will black your eye.

    Mr. Bingley-hah! I had a bit of comment regret on that one, it was a more than a little cheeky but no ill will intended.
    THS-I’ll just leave that one alone.
