Rachael Corrie Makes Me Sad

Well, not really the woman herself, but this picture with her in it does:

rachel-corrie-flag-02.jpg

It's the kids surrounding Corrie that make me sad. Most of them probably didn't know what the hell they were doing there, or why, except that their parents told them to do it.

And saddest of all, because of people like Corrie, I have to work extra hard to teach my children that it's okay to kill the children in the picture, because, in time, if they don't, they will live under sharia law.

No, don't take that wrong, I'm not going to teach my kids to kill Muslims, but I am going to heartily encourage them to explore the virtues of defending their country by joining the military.

Which, in the current state of affairs, boils down to my kids facing off against these kids some day in armed conflict. I don't want my kids to kill these kids.

I don't like war. Since I first stuck my nose into war by reading a short biography of Custer in the 2nd grade, I've never liked war.

It's an irony in this day and age. People like me who truly hate war, but recognize it's necessary in order to secure our safety, are labeled warmongering bigots.

People like Corrie, who exhort the readily inflammable to jihad, and willingly participate in the indoctrination of their children, are lauded as peaceful, willowy butterflies who would never hurt another living thing.

Even as they destroy lives.

So Rachael Corrie, and others like her, make me sad. They only perpetuate the death and destruction.

1 Obviously more staged bullshit. The kids have a look that shows they were just pushed in a group. Notice none of them looking at her. All looking at the candy the man behind the camera is holding up.

2 C'mon kids!! Look at the pancake!! The kids in the background are looking at her thinking "Psycho Barking Moonbat'. Oh no, sorry...that's what I was thinking. WhenI lived in Israel we used to get many of these lefturd moonbat morons coming over thinking they were going to change the world by helping the Palestinians and have an impact on the situation. Some smarten up and realize who the bad guys really are and head home dejected that their ideals were all wrong. The rest end up like St. Pancake or the bozo that (some of you gave me grief over because I made fun of and had no sympathy for him) got kidnapped the other week and was released when the terrorists realized he was on their side and had written an article supporting Palestinians and condemning Israel.He was probably a convert too. I used to see 'tards like him in Tel Aviv drunk on a leave from their work in Gaza or WB and they would get shitkicked by Israelis. You see, they'd get drunk, go to a cafe after the disco and start mouthin'off about how the Jews were murdering and oppressing the Palestinians, not realizing that every guy in the cafe was either serving or had served in the IDF. No one ever said they were the brightest bulbs on the Christmas tree!!


My kids ask me why don't Muslims love Jesus? Why do Muslims let their kids play with real guns? Don't they know that's dangerous and their kids could die? These aren't easy questions to answer and explain to children. For now I tell them that Satan doesn't want them to love Jesus and that Satan did the same thing to the parents. And then I get my kids to pray that Satan leaves the Muslimsalone and they will some day know that Jesus loves them.

5 CNN is now pimping Jihadi Sniper video. Since it has been available for a few years now, why is it all of a sudden so important to see that CNN is pushing it? Because CNN wants the Dems in popwer, and they are pushing this stuff for a political reason. They make me want to puke.

9 You know, not every war is WWII. Not every war is a just war. Not every war is a justifiable, noble exercise.Rachael Corriedied trying to save a family's house from a bulldozer- not fighting an insurgency. Y'all might want to think before you hand over your humanity.She died putting her money where her mouth wasfor something she believed in (took more balls than anything I've seen from anyone on this blog). Talk is cheap.

11 tbone,

Mohammed Atta died putting his money where his mouth was for something he believed in (took a lot of balls). So fucking what.

That family's house was being used by the paleos for smuggling weapons-- weapons they used to kill Jewish families. Therefore flapjacks Corrie was a terrorist enabler and an accomplice to murder-- she got what she deserved.

Posted by: Jesusland Carlos at October 19, 2006 10:14 AM

12 Ditto what JC said. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Not only that but she couldn't even draw a decent American flag before she burned it.

I am going to set up a fund to pay for the poor Israeli bulldozer driver who had to edure the horror of running over such a vile and offensive moron. He/she probably needs therapy to overcome what must have been a frightening ordeal, until she was shut up.

Posted by: SeeMonk at October 19, 2006 10:24 AM

13 This is what flapjacks Corrie died for:

"The IDF has found 15 smuggling tunnels since the end
of June, when the army intensified activity in the Gaza Strip following
the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit."

14 "That family's house was being used by the paleos for smuggling weapons" - really, then why don't you share your evidence with Isreal since they can't seem to find a reason for that particular house's demolition - Y'all sure are quick to dismiss. BTW, equating a guy who knew he was going to die with someone who puts their life on the line is not the same but if I have to tell you that thenyou've already lost your humanity (did the terrorists win or were you always like that?). Follow your own logic with the firemen who ran into the building. Oh and another thing - FIRST TO BRING UP 9-11 on an unrelated topic LOSES!!!!!! Same goes with HITLER. What a bunch of tough guys who can't even deal with a little girl who doesn't agree with you. Color me impressed.

Posted by: tbone at October 19, 2006 10:39 AM

15 Let's go way off topic since you all like the 'party line' so much - I guess you can equate that kid in Tienamen Square with a terrorist. Your logic is seriously flawed - not surprising since you are advocating people be run down by bulldozers.

Posted by: tbone at October 19, 2006 10:44 AM

16 tbone, are you related to Dean Esmay? You sure sound like him!

Posted by: Big White Infidel at October 19, 2006 11:32 AM

17 really, then why don't you share your evidence with Isreal since they
can't seem to find a reason for that particular house's demolition

You mean YOU can't seem to find a reason. She was repeatedly warned by the IDF to stay away, and even her ISM handlers admitted she did not show proper discipline in her protests. Flapjacks inserted herself into a war zone, and now moonbats complain that she got hers. LOL.

And then you question my humanity because I don't see the world through the same demented moonbat goggles you do. Gee, I thought we were talking about flapjacks Corrie. Now it's about me. Standard procedure for debating moonbats.

FIRST TO BRING UP 9-11 on an unrelated topic LOSES!!!!!! Same goes with HITLER.

In other words, please don't bring up inconvenient analogies. LOL. Hitler too can be used for the sake of analogy-- which is not the same as calling someone Hitler (what you Lefties do). If your logic can't hold up under scrutiny doesn't mean you get to cover your ears and yell "la la la, I can't hear you!"

In fact Mohammed Atta had MORE balls than Flapjacks Corrie did-- knowing he was going to die-- while flapjacks Corrie had no intention of dying, mistakenly believing she could insert herself into an IDF operation with no risk to herself.

20 Where is your evidence that she deserved to die? That she was 'warned'? That she was in a war zone? Really? I guess that dismissing any opinion that differs from your own makes it easy to LOL at a little girls death. This thread is repulsive and repugnant -I would pray for your soul if you had one.

Posted by: Jesusland Carlos at October 19, 2006 02:27 PM

28 JC she is in a panic because one of the other little children was playing with fire and she cannot put it out.

Flapjacks, that's funny. She died doing what she wanted to do. Slim down a little to reduce her profile.

How hard can it be to get out of the way of a bulldozer. I mean they go what, 2 mile an hour wide open? Obviously she failed to appreciate the dedication of Israeli construction workers while in the middle of an important job. BTW Tbone, how do you know that particular house had no reason to be knocked down? Is it because you read it on the internet or was it something you read in a pamphlet handed to you by a Rachel Corrie supporter?

Keep drinking the purple cool-aid. Eventually you will find Jim Jones' favorite mix.

Posted by: SeeMonk at October 19, 2006 02:37 PM

29 Hey Greg,

Did you serve in the military? How can you call his kids cowards but rejoice in the intifada that will claim the lives of hundreds more children? Your words are as poorly chosen as Vinnie's. I for one am doing everything I can do to save my son from serving while a war is on.

Go straight one day and have a kid. The world changes in your eyes as you watch and help your child grow up. Try explaining to them why the screaming lady is burning our flag in front of a bunch of children.

Posted by: SeeMonk at October 19, 2006 02:42 PM

30 Obviously y'all have a f#$*ed sense of reciprocity - she deserved to be killed by bulldozer for her politics- me too, since I do not agree with 100% of what my country or partydoes. Funny how the beheader supporters sound just like you. BTW - those bulldozers were American made and sold and modified illegally according to int'l law and our own law. Who needs evidence on this site? All you need is personal conviction and no conscience.

Posted by: tbone at October 19, 2006 02:52 PM

31 tbone,

if she had been standing on the sidewalk minding her own business instead of lying in front of a military bulldozer engaged in a military operation, then no she did not deserve to die just because of her politics. But that's not quite how things transpired now is it?

"Where is your evidence that she deserved to die? That she was 'warned'?
That she was in a war zone? Really? I guess that dismissing any opinion

death. This thread is repulsive and repugnant -I would pray for your
soul if you had one."
Where is your evidence that she wasn't warned?

Umm Gaza was not a warzone? I guess Israeli's can't be comitting "war crimes" then right? Oh wait, its not a warzone. Or is it? Can't be both at the same time can it? Oh wait, with your logic and reasoning it can!

If she was such a "little girl" than what were her parents thinking in
letting her go into to a warzone? Or perhaps she wasn't a "little girl" but a "young adult" who could make her own decisions? Nice try at
sensationalism there though, you almost had us..."Her politics may have been naive, but she died in a war zone by a
bulldozer? You telling me she or anyone elsehad that coming? A
bulldozer? Seriously? I'm sorry to say but that is what you call a war
crime - Republicans used to know that."

Oh cool! Now it IS a war zone! Well at least we got that bit cleared up. To be quite frank with you, when someone lies in front of a bulldozer that is coming in their general direction, regardless of being warned or not, I don't really care what that person's politics are, they had it coming!

As well, I did not know that running over someone with a bulldozer is a war crime? Next time I see an accident at a construction site I'll make sure the jackass in the Bobcat is brought up on charges at The Hague. In my time spent in the military I don't recall reading anything in the Geneva Convention that talked about bulldozers. Perhaps you could enlighten me as to the clause that deals with this sort of thing. Perhaps it is under the clause that explicitly allows an enemy force to blend with the civilian populace and does not require them to wear a distinctive uniform...

"BTW - those bulldozers were American made and sold and modified
illegally according to int'l law and our own law. Who needs evidence on
this site? All you need is personal conviction and no conscience."

They were sold and modified according to international law? Which international law? Got a link for that?

Who needs evidence? Those last two sentences sound like a cop-out; "I don't have any proof to back up my feelings I've just foisted upon you all so I'm going to express my disgust with you because that wins arguments in my books." I'm sorry, but that is not a good way to win an argument.

Besides, if we disgust you so much than I find it curious that you continue to hang around. After all, you wouldn't want to be associated with a bunch of thuggish neanderthals like us now would you? :P

37 Some people think this was a picnic. The bulldozer had a mission to complete in hostile territory. Iguess the driver was supposed to get out and take Rachael by the hand and lead her out of harms way and take the time to put up "Stay clear --Demolition underway " signs.This is the business of war. It is usually not pretty.

40 "Nice labels and insults though". Thanks we do try. I doubt the operator of the equipment is to blame. Vision is limited. He may have thought she moved when she did not. He can't see right where she would have been. He probably thought if he knew she was there she would have the good sense to move before squashed. Lets face it bulldozers aren't exacty fast now are they. Sadly, and yes I feel some pitty for the silly dumbass, she played with danger and lost. Taking risks like she did sometimes results in a damn that was a dumb idea I'm dying now moment. Sad buy not entirely unpredicatble that if you stand in front of a 20 ton dozer it can smash you like bug. I've been to the mine and oine of thethings they tell you is don' stand close to the big equipment. STand away and get teh operators attn for a good distance be damn sure he see's you first. When he stops you move.

41 Tbone:



Unless you know "exactly" what happened in the incident with the bulldozer, as in "being there", STFU.



Unless you know what was in the heart of the bulldozer operator, STFU.



Unless you intend to verbally defend the use of the house as it was being used, STFU.



I feel sorry for Rachel Corrie and most people do, but she ain't no
martyr. She was an adult - not a "little girl". She made
her decisions. She was just as inciting as any jihadi
propagandist we see today. She was hateful and
foul-mouthed. Your arguments get weaker by the moment. If
you want to say that others are being hateful, then fine, but defending
her actions as a means to that is the wrong way to go about it.

45 "Theburden ofevidence ison the accuser jacka$$ - that's how it works in civil societies."

And you came in here accusing the Israelis of comitting war crimes because someone decided to lie in the path of moving slow moving heavy equipment that happens to have poor operator visibility. Perhaps then the burden was upon you in the first place to provide the links?

"I'll do your homework for you - these are unbiased googlesearches

Thanks for the links. Forgive my skepticism but most of the links that follow from Google lead to people's websites who believe that anything Israel or the US does could be construed as a "war crime" without specifying just which part of "the laws of war" were violated (Perhaps because they do not know the actual contents of the often referred documents containing these laws as well as the ones required to follow them?). So I still remain puzzled as to just what "war crime" was comitted by selling pieces of heavy equipment. (If the "war crimes" are referring to the Israeli's well see above posts about the dangers of playing near heavy equipment. An accident is not usually considered a war crime by most rational persons.) Perhaps some American export laws were broken in exporting this equipment. If thats the case then Cat should be prosecuted. If that were the case however I do not see why the US Bureau of Industry and Security or whoever is responsible for imports/exports of heavy equipment (forgive me, a foreigner, for not knowing the breakdown of your government 's departmental responsibilities, I guess I could Google it if I had more time ;) ) is not getting involved. It would seem so far only a partisan organization called "The Center for Constitutional Rights" is suing Caterpillar; are any Federal departments stepping in to enforce export laws? Aside from that, I fail to see how any "war crimes" were comitted by Caterpillar. Does that mean anyone who sells up-armoured construction equipment that can be used to kill someone is comitting a warcrime? The armoured bulldozers are used by military engineers to construct obstacles and to "prove" the ground after clearing landmines, etc, so I doubt Cat was selling bulldozers knowing they might be used to run over people. Will Toyota and Nissan be charged with "war crimes" next for selling vehicles used in the making of car bombs?

"Nice labels and insults though, I'm sure you are all real humans when not in front of a monitor."

"Theburden ofevidence ison the accuser jacka$$ - that's how it works in civil societies."

I don't think I need to say any more than just quoting that. No worries though, I've been called worse.

Have a good day!

I look at that picture of the hateful bitch burning the American flag in front of the next generations of suicide bombers and I don't feel an ounce of compassion for her. I despise people like her. Doesn't mean I want them killed-- I don't-- but if they get themselves killed by their own stupidity I won't shed a solitary tear.

I didn't mean to offend, C101. I agree that most sites
google shows are liberal slanted (thank goodness for some oases). I think the
really interesting thing about this girls death is it at least shows some spot
light on what goes on in that region. In a war zone, exploding bombs and
bullets at the same time houses being demolished with poor-visibility heavy
machinery. How many others may have died and will die in this manner?
