  • As long as there is a plentiful supply of heavy ordinance and people willing to wear it in vests for a fucking moon god, Iraq is doomed.

  • CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL IRAQIS and thanks for the support shown by people everywhere!!!

    BUT while we celebrate the whabbi machine in saudia arabia is pouring out countless fatwas ordering the killing of shia....the latest ones order whabbist to destroy the shrines in kerbala, najaf...basically the dearest to shia...if that happens then kiss the mid east goodbye.

    Good for Iraq. They seem to do pretty good in football as recent tournaments indicate.

  • Would be nice if they won on Sunday. Still, getting this far in itself is a great achievement.

  • Yeah and then the radical terroristic hater muslims blew up a car bomb when innocents were dancing in the streets and killed over 50 people that day. They have no regard for anyone, not even innocents. If you hear they do it is all propaganda.

    i could be wrong but i think they lose their velocity on the way down, if they are shot at a high enough angle to were gravity brings them down (which it would have to be to hit you if the guy is close).
