[Ron]Do we have any blue helmets back there, I'm starving[/Ron]
Wow, just wow. We should just get rid of all africa.
think they debated which to eat on which night?
Soldier 1: "What do ya want tonight? Italian?"
Soldier 2: "Nah, Italian gives me gas..lets eat Chinese"
Soldier 1: "Ok..but you know..we'll be hungry again an hour later!"
mmm...tastes like chicken
More like, tastes like pork. The other, other white meat. Why would they throw the heads away, you could make a good headcheese with that. Cheeks and jowls. Just wasteful if you ask me.
Hence the term Long Pig
While looking it up, I came across this:
that is pretty funny!
I misread this thread and thought it said "Librarian Death Squads" which put a vastly different image in my mind.
Dude, Taylor's cannibalism has been part of the record for a while, now.
IIRC, "Lord of War" mentioned that his son had a reputation as a cannibal.
On the other hand, the US has just a slight responsibility to help out in Liberia, since we fucking founded the damned country in the first place as an attempted "fix" for one of this country's mistakes...
This is one of the most badass news stories I've ever read.
I had just come from the Ron Paul thread so I thought it said "Libertarian Death Squad". I was really wondering what the fuck I was in for.
we founded Liberia, its our responsibility,
Never thought of it that way,but good point. We play big protective brother to other countries, this one even existing is a direct result of the our countries' former actions
Librarians, the other dark meat.
Beat me to it. Just to shed a little more light on Liberia, it was founded during the Monroe administration with the purpose for being the new homeland for slaves. Its capital, Monrovia, is the only foreign city to be named after a United States president.
The sad things is, Liberia was one of the brighter lights in Africa. From 1822-1980, Liberia was as healthy an African country as there was, other than South Africa.
Yes, an African country was continuously a more-or-less democratic republic for 158 years!!!!!
The decision by Carter (in the middle of his losing election to Reagan, and distracted by Iran) not to get involved meant that Liberia has been through almost 30 years of pure shit. And yes, the coup leaders were smart enough to paint all their opponents as "socialists" to keep Reagan off their backs.
I'm not saying Liberia was a paradise before the 1980 coup: for one thing there were some pretty serious caste issues with the descendants of former American slaves running things. But compared to the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, it was pretty damned good.
I agree. Pics or it didn't happen.
Can't we just sell it to the highest bidding gang? :icon_mrgr
Ha, I read it at "[SIZE=-1]Libertarian death squads." Now that is scary.[/SIZE]
Fuck, now I'm thinking like Voss's Tumor.
