Judy-Bob and I watched Osama last night. Judy's friend told her that this film succinctly defines why we went to war in Afghanistan (Everybody Knows™ the justification for the Iraq war was those huge stashes of WMDs). Lemme clue in Judy's friend: protecting the women who lived under the Taliban regime was not why we went to Afghanistan. We went there to find Usama bin Laden. So far, the Bush Regime has failed to do so.

Back to the movie: the plot (better acted than Moolaadé) was something like this: blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah and then ... blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah. After that, they blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah and then there was the part where blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah. This was the part that really held my attention: blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah.

Hey, it was all in Pashto (one of the languages spoken in Afghanistan) with English subtitles, so it's possible I missed some of the plot elements.

Everybody Knows is a trademark of Fox "News"; Rush Limbaugh Productions; and the Christian Fascist Republican Party.

Oh, come on, Gene! Everybody knows that we went to war against Aphghanistan for the very same reason we attacked ee-ROCK: earl.

In the case of Aphghanistan (I hope you don't mind my replacement of 'f' with "ph" -- it's all the rage these days) it was to allow an earl pipeline to be run phrom some phormer Soviet republican to one seaport or another. Seems that the other alternative is to pipe the earl through Russia, but the Rooskies siphon ophph a phew million barrels here and there and that just ain't right!

Sorry if my phacts aren't quite as crisp as they should be, but you get the idea. The phacts aren't really that important anyway. Cheap gasoline is.
