  1. iraqi nori al haleki is criminal thug and a thief

    وردتنا معلومات من احد منتسبي الاستخبارات مفادها ما يلي :

    قامت مجموعه من مهربي المخدرات تابعين الى منظمة " بدر" يرأسة هادي العامري بادخال ( ثمانيه ونصف ) طن من المخدرات ( حشيشه ) من ايران وعبر مدينة البصره ثم الى الناصريه لغرض تهريبها الى المملكه العربيه السعوديه وجزء من الكميه تذهب الى محافظات الوسط ( كربلاء – النجف – الديوانيه – بابل ) لبيعها في هذه المدن

    تمكنت مفارز الاستخبارات في مدينة الناصريه من القاء القبض على المخدرات والمهربين وفورا تحرك المهربين للاتصال باللواء ( صباح الفتلاوي ) قائد شرطة ذي قار وتم الاتفاق معه على تسوية القضيه وعلى الشكل التالي ( بعد فحص كمية المخدرات وجدت انها حشيشه مغشوشه ) مقابل ( ٦٠ ) الف دولار تسلمها اللواء صباح من المهربين بغية اطلاق سراحهم من السجن وتسليم المخدرات ( المغشوشه ) ؟؟؟

    ارسلت الاستخبارات معلومات الى وزارة الداخليه حول كمية المخدرات وتفاصيل الاتفاق الذي تم ما بين اللواء صباح الفتلاوي والمهربين تم الاتصال من قبل وزير الداخلية وكالة " عدنان الاسدي " برئيس الوزراء نوري المالكي " القائد العام للقوات المسلحه واعلمه بتفاصيل القضيه وكان جواب المالكي لوكيله عدنان الاتي : ( صباح الفتلاوي" ابنه " اكتفي بنقله الى بغداد اما المهربين وهم من ( منظمة بدر) امر المالكي باطلاق سراحهم مخاطبا وكيل وزير الداخليه ( تعرف ذوله من جماعة " هادي العامري " ( حزام ظهرنه ) ..

    مع العرض ان المنظمه نشرت معلومات سابقه عن الخلاف الذي نشب بين اللواء صباح الفتلاوي شقيق ( لهلوبة المالكي ) بسبب قيام احد مرافقي " صباح " بشفط ( 80 ) الف دولار ارسلها بيده صباح الى اهله في محافظة بابل وهي مبالغ رشى المخدرات ولم يسترجعها له وهدده بكشف الاموال الطائله التي جناها شقيق حنان من تهريب المخدرات .

        I agree with most of what you wrote, but امر المالكي باطلاق سراحهم مخاطبا وكيل وزير الداخليه is just crazy talk.

    Would Sarkozy be unseated, he would be the second one-term president in the history of the Fifth Republic after Giscard d'Estaing (1974-1981).

      Under Jacques Chirac the presidential tenure was shortened from seven to five years. He had first a seven-year term and was reelected in 2002 for a five-year term.

    Europe and its people:

    1) Europe;
    the land is dry and infertile. As a result, its people keep dying on environmental related diseases and forced to arm struggle to take what's available and that leads them to seek illegal and violence immigration to fertile lands in Africa, where it makes them united during natural resources robbery.

    2) Its people engineered the World with Satanic style BLUEPRINT lifestyle. As the result, others followed them using their REVERSE-ENGINEERING and War with Nuclear Bombs scared all people around the World without future uncertainty.

    If this World had been started with Positive Blueprint and Positive Mind-Set, well, it could have been better and different from now.

    Well enough to know Israel is better.

    What stupid Americans seem not to understand, is that Jews are chosen people.

    We will reap the rewards of our faithful service to Yahweh.

    The goyim of this world should be happy to fight over the scraps that we Jews throw from table.

    Israel will reign supreme over earth, and anybody challenging that assertion will be conquered, with the help of US military.

    You people may not like us Jews, but you WILL learn to fear us.

    If a few of you must die to save a few of us....that's a bargain I can live with. Your own nations agree with me on this.

    Your sacrafices are necessary to ensure the survival of the only democracy in the middle east. Be happy.

    Long may Israel reign.

      this is a joke right. clearly the words of a bigot hoping to incite some kind of response. unfortunately all you spout is ignorance along the same lines of a radical Muslim cleric or a fanatical southern baptist preacher. you are fooling no one.

    CNN's knowledgeable readers interview Mr.FAREED ZAKARIA to see how well HE KNOWS the world. (These are REAL STATEMENTS FROM Mr.Zakaria !)

    CNN Reader: Why is Syria not much bothered about a threat from the sea?
    FZ: B'coz Syria is a LANDLOCKED country!

    CNN: Why should Egypt-Israel peace treaty be abrogated
    FZ: B'coz it's a treaty between TWO REGIMES and NOT Two Peoples!

    CNN: How do you explain the dastardly Chechyan terrorist attack on Moscow airport?
    FZ: We can't hold the Checyans responsible for this. Russia has created its own Islamic TERRORISM problem!

    CNN: Whom do you see as A BIGGER THREAT AMERICA OR AL-QAEDA?
    FZ: IN fact the danger is from us and NOT from them! US actions made Al-Qaeda Hate us! (ref. FZ's article "How America over reacted to 9-11") Sept 11th, 2011

    FZ: What do you make out of the threat from radical islam?
    FZ: Moderate Muslims waged war on radicals and WON! – Cover story Newsweek

    CNN: How are the moderate elements in ME?
    FZ: Obviously Hamas and Hezbollah! I have recommended a book by a Hezbollah terrorist as one of the best books on moderate voices and Humantirian work in the ME! (Ref: "Israel’s Greatest Danger" and on CNN GPS show)

    CNN: Why is the ME burning?
    FZ: Obviously b'coz oil is at $105 a barrel!!! “I'm struck at how in this one week you have seen – from Afghanistan to Yemen to Syria to Iran to Egypt – all these places at a boil. One reason for this, I suspect, is that oil is at over $105 a barrel.”

    THE LIST GOES ON & ON & ON!!!

  7. Retired in New Mexico

    I was surprised that I got 8 correct in this little quiz. As a Native American (American Indian???) The family "joke" is that any time one of the males in the family leaves the country, some one starts shooting at us... 1898 in the Spanish-American War ,1918 France, 1942-45 North Africa, Italy,France and Germany,1950-53 Korea, and my own 1964-73 in Vietnam.
    My wife and I are planning (or rather,hoping) to tour Europe in the near future and experance the sights and cultures of Europe. Nothing major. Perhaps pastry in Vienna, dinner in a 2-3 star cafe in southern France, enjoy the views in Umbria, etc... Well here's hoping that our fixed retirement income won't be too badly steam rollered by the economy...

    I was going to take the quiz until I saw it was being put forth by the genius (see Amit-Atlanta-USA comment) Comrade Zakaria. Has to be slanted.
