Human Shields can't make it

Have you guys heard about the human shields?

Apparently they are an organization of antiwar protesters who are going to Iraq to act as human shields against any US led war effort or something similar to this.

Well, apparently, they can't make it into Iraq from Syria because they burned their US passports when they arrived in the middle east and now the Iraqi border guards won't let them in for lack of proper dicumentation.

I find this to be absolutely hilarious. I don't care how you feel about a potential war (personally am undecided), you have to recognize the stupidity of these people.

And that means they cannot come back without a passport. How stupid are these people?

They are better off dead.

Looks like they'll be staying at the local airport for a very long time. No passport, no travel!

Who says drugs don't do anything to you?

They are even less intelligent than I suspected! Idiots.

Let's ship them a can of bright red paint, so they can draw a large bulls-eye on their shirts for our pilots to look for! At least then their pathetic existence would serve some purpose.

Would that be considered an act of treason? Burning your passport?

Hmm, I hope no more human shield will get into Iraq or we will be forced into using nukes to get them all. Anyone heard if Suzan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin or Martin Sheen are planning to go?? They promised to leave if Bush gets elected, but somehow they cannot get a ticket. This would be a great opportunity...

Alon-it's not, but should be. I hoped Saddam would use them so we know where the really important targets are, you know- two birds with one stone...

Maybe Tom Cruise and Barbera Streisand will go with them! *fingers crossed* They promised to leave as well! Well, Tom did anyway...and "Babs" is just a moron, so she might the type that would participate.

if and when the u.s.military begins 'mopping' up on that place, they'll be killed along with anyone else.


i always knew OVERESTIMATING your own IMPORTANCE is FATAL.

[no real pun intended]

overestimate yourself in business, and you'll see what happens.
