Yasser Arafat is dead? not-dead? comatose? zombie?

Conflicting news reports abound concerning Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, who is in Paris for emergency medical treatment.  So far I’ve read that he’s died, he’s brain-dead, he’s in a coma, and he’s dating Charlize Theron.

    Damnit, you beat me to it.

    Anyway, I’m not too sad that the guy who invented airline hijacking is on his death-bed.  His French death-bed.

    No shit.  His passing might go a long way in fixing the Israeli/Palestinian problems

    I kinda see this as a chance to possibly start to fix things over there.  And if we dont make a serious active effort to fix things then we need to leave the middle east the hell alone.

    I think when he dies, they should compress him under tons of pressure until his body becomes oil, then sell that Yasser oil to power an Israeli suburban housewife’s SUV so she can take her kids to temple.  I mean, how ironic would that be?  And everyone would think it was such an audacious, outrageous gag that all sides would have a good laugh, lay down their arms (or, rocks, depending upon which side you’re on) and go out for beers.

    And that’s how I solved the Middle East conflict.

    a good beer and regular sex would probably go a long ways to solve a lot of the worlds problems, youve got my vote reverend.

    yer damn right.  if the world would just send those jihadists a bunch of whores, all would be well.  I have never wanted to blow up a school right after sex.  (The fact that I have never wanted to blow up a school at any other time either DOES NOT make my point any less valid)

  • Pragmatist

    yeah the most active Ive been after sex is possibly wanting a sandwhich…is that weird?
