Well, they have to come from somewhere, right?

I've always wondered where all those flags come from for those 'spontaneous' demonstrations you see on the news.  Now I know:

Don't thank me... I'm a giver.

Way funny.

While on the subject of commercial opportunities created by terrorism, what is it with US media refering to "IEDs" whenever someone is hurt by a roadside bombing in Iraq? Aren't all bombs used by insurgencies "improvised"? It's not like they buy them at WalMart. "Honey, remember to pick up the hummus and some RPGs!"

Brilliant! Just Brilliant! Where you FIND these great clips?!

Consider us "even," since I found this as amusing as the "Liberation Army Against Freedoms" fireworks safety video link I sent you awhile back.

Productions like these give me hope for Northern Europe -- at least *some* of them still don't know when to keep their mouths shut and the cameras off. Those are my kind of folk.

A lot of militaries use mines or other explosive devices.

A lot of terror groups use military surplus.

For once, Wiki is fairly accurate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bomb

Ha. It's a deadly satire from Germany, part of the "Extra3" show on NDR. There's more on YouTube, like e.g. "Terror tips by Ahmed, Achim and Ali" ( http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Dnq6MpOXU9k ). It's hilarious.
Well, it's German, which is probably why it hasn't hit the big screens out there. But now you know "our" take on the whole thing.

Oh, this one is hilarious, too.

They have viewers of "Tehror tibs with Achim and Ali" write in about the subject of suicide attacks ("can I work this from home?", "why don't you just shoot the heathens instead of bombing and risk the life of fellow Muslims?").
Btw., "Halt's Maul, Ali" means "Stuff it, Ali."

You're welcome.

Lisa... IED's are indeed improvised. But don't let that give you the idea that the bad guys have no access to top shelf weapons and explosives. They do.

Maya... From friends and treppenwitz readers.

Wry Mouth... Let's see how long it stays up before the death threats prompt the host to pull it.

a... So, Germans have a sense of humor after all. Who knew? :-)

Woohoo! I've been hat tipped at the mighty Treppenwitz! And I don't even have a blog!
