Justice Coin

The latest in Afghan War kitsch.

If this isn’t cultural decline, I don’t know what is. Check out this infomercial for a newly minted coin commemorating the death of Osama Bin Laden.

On one side it proclaims: “You can run but you cannot hide” etched above a golden image of Seal Team 6 – the kill squad who finally brought the elusive cat down. On the other side it reads: “Justice has been done” next to three iconic engravings of the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and Flight 93.

Before ordering your $19.95 limited-time-only-holiday-offer collectable, make sure to ask the operator if you can get some authentic Pakistani blood on the coin, or a piece of Osama’s cloak to wrap it in. Even better yet, bone fragments from an innocent civilian, preferably a child or housewife, caught in the crossfire.

Why not give these folks a call and jam the telephone line.

Or better yet, purchase a set and send it to your favorite neo-con wrapped in bloody dollar bills.

Israel masterminded 911?? Now that makes perfect sense. I suppose the holocaust never happened either, eh? Wow, what it must be like to be in that scary place called your head. I pity people like you, you will never learn, and will leave this world much more ignorant than when you came in.

The occupation of Afghanistan was planned by Bush Zionist administration long before the Big Bang on September 11, 2001. Therefore, it has nothing to do with so-called Al-Qaeda or Osama Bin Laden or the War on Terror or liberstion of Afghan women from Taliban Islamic fundamentalist regime – because those excuses have long been proven to be as much lies as “Saddam Hussein has WMDs” and the “Jews have Biblical right to occupy Palestine”.

YES – the loot of Caspian Sea oil/gas resources did play the role of the carrot to invade Afghanistan, as was the case in American invasion of Iraq in 2003. However, in both cases – the real reasons are not reported in the western Zionist-controlled media. In case of Iraq – it was to maintain Israel as the “Bully” in the Middle East, while in case of Afghanistan – it was the revival of the lucrative drug market – which had a nose-dip during the final days of Taliban rule in Afghanistan.

Before Taliban’s successful eradication of Poppy cultivation – Afghanistan supplied 75% of the world’s opium and most of the heroin to the western world. This shortage supply worried the drug mafia lords.

In 2007 – Afghanistan is reported to have produced 93% (8,200 tons) of all opium drugs. The US administration officials are known for their close contacts with Afghan drug dealers. The drug supplies play a large part to compensate America’s occupation expenses in Afghanistan.

Israel is a nuclear armed terrorist state. It has ICBM technology that can reach any nation on the globe. It murders innocent, children, women and elderly. It keeps a people in a Nazi style ghetto that it attacks with the most modern of weapons, like shooting fish in a barrel. It carries out assassinations in sovereign nations using stolen credentials of tourist to hide the identity of its henchmen. It manipulates and bribes foreign government officials to ignore and white wash its atrocities against humanity. These are facts and not antisemitism ! But than again and criticism of the "victim" is antisemitic right? פושעים!

Go back to your Arab Land. Israel has done more positive things for this world than all the Arab countries combined. Arabs are lower than worms, and most people know this to be fact. They eat their own. Israel respects human life, Arabs put no value on human life, it's proven everyday you twerp.

Sounds like you've been snorting that Poppy dude. You are obviously one hurting unit to believe such crap. I pray you don't have children, I"m sure you don't, because creeps like yourself are so self obsessed that you wouldn't know where to begin to care for another. Get a life.
