      I heard about Mike Yevtuck beating up chuck zito and Raymond foakes to name a few of the hells angels with the biggest mouths.
      Its clear all the hells angels in the USA fear Mike Yevtuck .

      Looking at muscles of Mike yevtuck and the strange out of shape hells angels members it easy how he is able to beat them in packs

I can't agree or disagree w/ his posts b/c they make no sense. Between the broken English and the () I have trouble piecing together what he is saying. So I just gave up. LMAO

    What a stupid reason for not believing in God. Some stupid humans do some really stupid things and say "God wants me to do these stupid things."

    So you say, "Well ... if God wants you to do this he is a bad God. God sucks!"

    You completely ruin your own credibility as far as people trusting you can make decisions for yourself. Not to mention you blame a supernatural being for the stupidity of mankind. The next time I make a blatantly stupid mistake, I am going to say "God wants me to do it." I never have to take responsibility for my own actions again!

    the american government is rumored to have a new program
    any muslim who turns in or kills bin laden, will receive 100,000 converts to be sponsored by the muslim who turns in or kills bin laden ,or any of the muslims friends relatives can sponsor any of the 100,000 converts, a local NY Iman will confirm this, call the 1-800 number today before another muslim takes advantage of the sponsoring of the converts. you can be 6 years old or 99 years old, age is not an issue, promote your religion, promote islam, sponsor the 100,000 converts tomorrow if you provide the information, hurry before your muslim neighbour turns him in sooner. be absolved for eternity, gain free passage between heaven and earth for eternity!

    To: Mr Karzai,

    Good morning sir. I hope there is good in any morning in Afghanistan.
    Sir, there is a lot of problem in Afghanistan and I hope the citizen of Afghanistan will take a stand to solve all the problems Afghanistan have. Among the problems were.
    1. Poppy plant
    2. Afghanistan should fight Al-quida, Osama bin Ladin Al- Sawari, extrimist and terrorism.
    3. Corruptions in the government and the country.
    4. You need to develop your own Copper mine for your economy.
    5. Education, legitiamate agriculture, industry is non existence
    6. Afghanistan should be independent from taking care of their terrorism problem.
    7. Afghanistan should take care of their economy.
    8. Aghanistan should develop its own soldiers, navy and airforce to protect itself against terrorism and any future attacks from Iran and other rougue nations.

      It so happens that now the Afghans are growing cannabis more than poppy now. It's cheaper to maintain and grow and now Afghanistan has become Europe's first provider of marihuana. Karzai stole the elections under the tacit approval of the US. If the US can't keep out illegal drugs to enter its borders, how dare you tell other countries to 'curb' their act??
      Also, in case you were not aware, the Taliban treat their women no different from the Northern Alliance– who you support and no different from the Saudi government.

        @ Lester Rodriguez-
        1. It doesn't matter, drugs are drugs, yes I agree Marijuanna is less dangerous but it's still being "taxed" by the Taliban. That is how they survive and fund thier war.
        2. The US did not corrupt the Elections, the Afghans did that on thier own, and it's going on right now. I know someone here who was just told for $200,000 they would get his daughter elected (from a Afghan Election Official). Which is BS of course but it's the reality.
        3. No the US cannot keep drugs out of thier borders but that's hardly tthe point. Everyone has to do thier part. When we annex Mexico and make it "Little Texas the 51st state", that will help. We're also going to make them start speaking English in Mexico then.
        4. The Taliban do not treat women the same as they do in Saudi, true it is similiar and neither one is right but the Taliban are a bit worse, public executions of women just for for going to the Market without thier husband is one case where the Taliban made examples of women, so no it is not the same.

    I agree with everyone!!
    How's that?
    I think, (in my humble opinion) that the key to Afghanistan is Kashmir.
    If only the crazy-paranoid Paki Military (ISI) could get off of their fixation on Kashmir, they could forget about their need to have a Pak-friendly Afghanistan at their backdoor and the fact that they had to create the Taliban to do their bidding would become a moot point. Pakistan needs to realize the facts of life.
    1. They are on the verge of becoming a failed state. Harboring Terrorists is not good for buisness.
    2. The Army & ISI have enslaved the country, and a peoples revolt is inevitable.
    3. The Afghan Army is only awaiting on US withdrawl in order to attack Pakistan.
    4. The Indian Army will (of course) also attack Pakistan at that time.
    5. The US will use it's airpower to neutralise the Paki Nukes in this situation.
    6. Caught in this vise, Pakistan as a country will be crushed.
    7. Pakistan will be divided as territories of Afghanistan & India.
    The only way for Pakistan to avoid this scenario is to give up control of Kashmir and consolidate it's forces in it's own interior while giving up it's Taliban/al Quida babies to the new world order.
    But other than that; I agree with everyone.

It will be torture 100X what they inflicted. Women are human, and not dogs or cattle. They kill innocents and other muslims. What kind of people are they? Certainly not followers of Mohammed.

      You're right, they are not following me, if they were I would lead them striaght to NATO and let NATO deal out justice in the name of a just god (but hopefully none of a gods grace or mercy) and the memory of 9/11. The Prophet has spoken.

    The Islamics are working feverishly developing missile and nuclear weaponry to bring on Armageddon and prompt the return of Mahdi their messiah. The Iranian president “whacko” is a huge fanatical believer in this fairy tale and is doing all he can to prompt the return of "MAHDI" this is not a joke these people are brainwashed with this nonsense! This will all end very badly for the American people if Obama allows these lunatics to continue developing the Persian Nuclear Bomb.

      When did you decide that? The only aggressision going on in the Middle East and South Asia is by the NATO forces who have no business in that part of the world! As soon as they vacate that area there will be peace and not before.

        @LarryKegel(US Army) I agree with you, but we (world's war on soviets 1979-1985) have pushed them to this devastation, abandoned soon after Geneva Accord91985), now as sponsors of "world's war on soviets" we have a responsibility to rebuilt what ever society they had before we bank rolled them into destruction.

        We had to finance the world's war on soviets". I believe if we had let them with soviets, they might have been ruling the Arabian Gulf and of course riches. And we might have been on the cave era side of the storey. I believe this is what we owe them, not what we need to do. Is not this how we deal with our friends and family. Why Afghan's be any different.

      • The Prophet Mohammed

        @ S Eanwar- I do not believe we have any responsibility to rebuild any country that we bomb, and in fact any country that was to do the same to us, would leave us a slave or to rebuild on our own, it's also a waste of taxpayers dollars, you simply cannot buy loyaly and friendship.
        True, Afghanistan IS different and we DO have a responsibility simply becuase they asked us for help to rid them of the Taliban, and we simply cannot leave them to thier own means to become a terrorist breeding ground once again (look up School of the Americas). Unfortunately, the Afghans are clearly not doing thier part. The Bank in Kabul scandal, Millions of dollars leaving the country at EVERY level of govornment and the extremely slow pace in the Afghans taking responsibility in Law Enforcement, Govornment corruption and the Military. At the same time, America is going through serious crisis in unemployment, housing, medical, maufacturing and the deficiet, all of this is further demoralizing by the fact that the American taxpayers are footing the Afghan bill to include wages for the Afghan Govornment, Police and Army. Yes YOU are paying thier wages. They are asking for raises and promotions from your tax money when they are not even doing thier jobs in many, many cases. I bet you didn't know that, but it's true, there is no real industry in Afghanistan right now, which is why the "recently discovered" mineral wealth is such a big deal. Without Industry there will be no stability in Afghanistan no matter how much rebuilding we do.
        Now if you will excuse me, I have some people to irritate. If I haven't offended you just yet, wait your turn, I will eventually get to you.

        Not true. The Taliban are not as crazed as we're led to believe. You also kill in the name of your flag and country and so do they. I remember when Kissinger and Bush talked about 'obliterating' the Taliban from the face of the Earth.' Here we are, 10 years later and the Taliban now is even gaining more recruits.
