Anti-US Emotions At Haraam Afghan Dogfight

From a chortling Reuters:

Anti-U.S. emotions run high at Afghan dogfighting ring

KABUL (Reuters) – Protests over the burning of Korans at a NATO base may have faded but some Afghans are still venting their rage over the incident — at a bloody Kabul dogfighting ring.

If emotions here are any indication, desecration of copies of the Muslim holy book did lasting damage to the image of the United States, which is struggling to pacify the country before NATO combat troops leave at the end of 2014.

Are they talking about the desecration the Muslim prisoners did when they wrote in the Korans? (Just kidding.)

"We call the dogs who lose Americans. We are furious about the Korans," said Mirwais Haji, 28, as a defeated canine limped off the snow-covered dirt ring on the edge of the capital.

If it were not the Korans, they would be furious about the fact that the earth revolves around the sun.

"We want the Afghan government to bring the people who did this to us. We will kill them ourselves."

But speaking of ‘desecration,’ it is forbidden under Islam to participate in dog fighting: “The Prophet (PBUH) forbade that animals be made to fight each other, thus denouncing people’s habit of goading animals into fighting each other until one of them was pecked or gored to death or close to it.”

So hopefully someone will kill all of the people attending dog fights over there. Or maybe a drone could do the job.

Thousands of people gather in a circle each Friday to watch large Afghan fighting dogs, known as Kuchis, attack each other in 30-second contests below mountains on the edge of Kabul.

Some do it for entertainment, betting up to $4,000 on a single fight, as vendors sell peanuts, tangerines and potatoes…

Gambling is also forbidden under Islam. So the US is really dishonoring the Muslim religion by not killing these people.

This Friday, several people were still riveted by the Koran burnings, which NATO called a tragic blunder. Gripped by anti-American sentiment, they cheered on dogs who growled, stood on their hind legs and tore at each other’s throats.

Friday being their holy day.

"We are tired of the Americans and what they do with the Korans and other incidents," said Akmal Bahadoor, 18, an airport employee [sic], as some of the dogs were held down by two men because they are so powerful and edgy.

"When we watch these dogs it’s a way of expressing our anger against the Americans. We think the Americans are being attacked."

We constantly need to remind ourselves that our soldiers are in Afghanistan to protect us from these savages. Not to help the savages.

    Obama described a Dog he ate of having a tough to chew texture.
    This was when Obama was legally adopted by his father Sotero in Indonesia where only 1 citizenship & religion is allowed.

    Obama described his muslim training by his father was laced with Asian Hindu religion.
    He described eating Snake meat too.

    There might be something to the Hindu religion as Obama is a dog and snake.
    The one and only reason Obama caved in and bought that dog considered “pests” by Middle-easterners, and “food” in Asian countries, was to look like a normal American dad in the White House, and he knew he’d rarely run into it in such a large house.

    Steve Said:

    “If it were not the Korans, they would be furious about the fact that the earth revolves around the sun. “

    That pretty much sums it up. Seems to me that anger worldwide is not in short supply. Like my grandad used to say, "There's always something to be angry about; The trick is finding something to be happy about." And perhaps unsaid, "Something that isn't at the expense of someone else".

    I guess what frustrates people is that we, here in the US are generally happy. That is, unless you're a national socialist who is too fat/thin/male/female/gender-confused/tall/short/poor/rich/long-haired/bald/blue/gray/green/hazel/brown-eyed/white/black/brown/yellow/educated/not-educated/employed/unemployed/warm/clod/hot/tepid/smart/stupid/in-between…..I could go on.

    If God had only said, "Ye all be but victims and the king shall stave thee and make thee whole again". But I'm at a loss as to find that particular phrase in the Bible. Since when did whining become the overwhelming world pastime? Overall, have we run short of people who get defeated, dust themselves off, stand back up and start over? Or is it, "I can't" and "I won't"? I think it is. Even at a national level, Iran whines that the rest of the world is "picking on it". China too. Europe…oh gawd…don't even go there. Talk about whining. Yet they will brag to any "typical" American about how strong they are as a nation. Yup….are you talking "masters of the seven seas" strong or….lacking in personal hygiene strong? I think the latter.

    For some odd reason, the most socialist countries seem to have a collective B.O. problem. A friend of mine who went to Afghanistan twice told me he dreaded the personal pat-downs of the locals. The stink alone was phenomenal. Not even cute-baby-with-a-dirty-diaper bad…but…..magnify that times 1,000.

    Then, there's the French. Ooo-la-LA! No wonder they invented le parfum there. Ever stand in a subway car in Paris in the summer? Sacre Bleu! C'est plus des odeurs!

    Spain…same thing. Italy too.

    See, the epitome of civilized society 2,000 years ago was Rome. They took pride in being bathed and clean. Yes, Rome fell. But they knew about being decent in large groups….and even the poor were encouraged to bath…in fact they had their own baths. Or, there were times of the day blocked out for all classes.

    I remember living in Germany and they were always shocked that I showered once a day, sometimes twice. They considered it a waste of water and that…not too coincidentally had something to do with their magistrates regulating water usage by charging ridiculous sums for it. Americans complained about the prices but…paid them. Cleanliness was important. Bathing mattered.

    Now, in the mid-east…where water is understandably a rare commodity…I can almost understand it. But I was told those people smell like —— cheese. Bad cheese. Limburger or worse. Gagnaciously awful.

    So I ask you…why is it the most socialist nations have people that stink?

      Rusty, as always, this was great.

      “Since when did whining become the overwhelming world pastime?”

      Surely, this isn’t anything new (and I apologize for calling you Shirley).

      With instant media and the intertoilet though, the megaphone effect has taken that particular loaded diaper and, like you put it, multiplied it by 1000.. at least. And let us never forget the enablers, our Super Nanny Utopian-Statist heroes at the Social Justice League.

    PETA hasn’t done a darn thing about this or the slow slaughter of animals in middle-east countries. One of the sickest video’s I saw was their taking down a white cow.

    I didn’t know Saddam Hussein had the Koran written with his own blood.

  6. wirenut says:

    10 ring Rusty! Time we “apply ourselves”. If we don’t push back, this may soon look like the U.S. Congress, Today.
    Oop’s…… mongrel dogs fighting in the streets, with cheering crowds. Sounds to me, like common sense is out the door. Here and abroad. The stench factor leads to one door. Our Whitehouse. I feel the need for a shower!
