12 Years Ago Today: The Bombing Of The USS Cole

The USS Cole bombing was a suicide attack against the United States Navy destroyer USS Cole on October 12, 2000, while it was harbored and refueled in the Yemen port of Aden. Seventeen American sailors were killed, and 39 were injured. This event was the deadliest attack against a United States Naval vessel since 1987.
Heroes gone, but not forgotten.

3 We should honor those killed aboard the Cole. 17 American Sailors killed and 39 injured.

We should also remember the 34 killed and the 174 injured aboard the attack on the USS Liberty. An even greater tragedy.

4 These are only those killed directly. My best friend, stationed in Norfolk, told me that at least one sailor who knew those killed committed suicide upon hearing of their deaths.

5 While we're at it, let's remember the 241 American servicemen murdered in 1983 in Lebanon by GheyRooster's allies against America, the nazishit wannabee Hezbollah.........

7 The modern Nazi are the lying, stinking, degenerate, traitorous, filthy zioshits. Foul creatures. Their brothers the Arabs and such are so ashamed of them they wish to rid the earth of them. Can you imagine that? A group wishing genocide on their brothers. These zioshits must be the lowest thing on earth.

Perhaps the muslims don't like traitors. Very few do.

What is the difference between a filthy zioshit and a bag of shit?

A: Nothing

9 Zioshit Characteristics:
Living proof that money can't buy love, these greedy, usurious, scheming Christ-killers, who won't eat pork because it reminds
them of their parents, go around moving into other people's countries and buying up all the pawnshops and delicatessens. They
were personally responsible for the fall of the Roman Empire, the 1929 stock market crash, and the loss of World War II by a prominent European country. Now they're ruining show business. Their fiendish heathen religious rituals include mutilating the penises of their own sons and drinking the blood of Christian babies during Lent. The world's nations have historically competed with each other to see who could get rid of them fastest. They are shit. A plague on the earth deadlier than all the world's diseases. Deport the bastards to Israel and cleanse the western world of this filth. Let them steal from each other instead of decent people.

It is the official historian of the Jews, (Josef Kastein, in his History of the Jews, who gives the underlying reason for this barbaric custom. On page 173, he says, "According to the primeval Jewish view, the blood was the seat of the soul."

Thus it was not the heart which was the seat of the soul, according to the stone-age Jews, but the blood itself. They believed that by drinking the blood of a Christian victim who was perfect in every way, they could overcome their physical short comings and become as powerful as the intelligent civilized beings among whom they had formed their parasitic communities. Because of this belief, the Jews are known to have practiced drinking blood since they made their first appearance in history.
