    Only a glance is sufficient to understand: true, brave soldier, a Man.

    It appears that the war was possible even without any evidences.

    And as we know now it happened.
     
  2. Will the BBC apologise for its policy of not using the word terrorist when refering to suicide bombers too? I guess not, nor will it apologise for saying that racism was an element in the deaths of hurricane Katrina now that the true picture of who died has emerged. The BBC would put PRAVDA to shame!
     
  3. 1. I categorically demand that the estate of the late Joseph Conrad change the title of one of his novels to The African-American of the Narcissus.

    2. I recall reading somewhere of a large daily newspaper which used editing software that automatically replaced the word "black" with "African-American."

    They felt obliged to alter it following publication of a headline dealing with a budget being "back in the African-American."
     
  4. Agatha Christie's famous whodunnit is now referred to as "AND THEN THERE WERE NONE"

    not "TEN LITTLE NIGGER BOYS"
     
  5. Hmmmm "Men in African American" sounds like the sort of film that I wouldn't like to see
     
  6. Well, I have to deal with a large number of corrupt and unholily bad-smelling wogs on a daily basis. Most are fairly manageable, but many are complete cnuts. I also have to cope with a total bstard of an SA white and a pair of insufferably bright Indian tw*ts.

    Everything really revolves around the Management of the Situation, including the country and the continent.

    'Niggers'? That's a term the Arabs use, isn't it? Oh, no, 'Kaffirs', that's right...
     
  7. Look, if you chaps don't stop sniggering, you'll be next to be censored.

  8. It gets complicated when emptying the bin, to use the expression "fetch me a fresh Diana Ross, luv" instead of "Black Bag" though doesn't it......
     
  9. Our LEC's at Shaibah were convinced that they were "Shirley Basseys"
     
  10. I laugh at the sheer hypocrisy of labels, it's ok for the N word to be used by VMEGS (Visible Minority Ethnic Groups) to use the PC terminology, it's even OK for Tarrantino to use it in his movies, however when it comes to historicaly factual movies namely the dam Busters, Guy Gibsons dog Nigger is suddenly redubbed Blackie courtesy of Channel 4 ministry of truth operatives. I appreciate that the N word is highly offensive but to change a historically factual name which is reflective of past attitudes smacks of Orwellian censorship and merely draws attention to the motives of those intent on rewriting our history.

  14. Having met the General numerous times I can not speak highly enoguh of him. He is a genuinely friendly man with some very considered academic views, whilst being humble about them and his own background.

    Everytime I have heard him speak to a group his experiance shines throguh and when listening to him speak about the situation in Iraq and the such you can tell he genuinely cares about the troops.

    A top man who, as I understand it, let slip what is simply as old phrase. I have heard far worse used numerous times I do hope it ends at this.
     
  15. I always say Ninja. Mind you I thought the term was Old Brit Army expression for injuns as per GMF's Flashman.
    john
    trust our yanks cousins to Eff it up for us Brits.
    Personnaly I couldn't give an F what colour they are, I'll go with the're all same color on the inside, Ex wife was and so where the ninjii in Bleize, where ever they came from.
    Thought I wuz one short for the full Central American set till sumone pointed out that Marei from Queen of Hearts was a Guatua and not honduran, so yes john did get to "T'wat a Gwat".
