Pretty Much Par for the Kos...

Guess what!

Give up?

Well, one of the Kos-kids has come up with a sure-fire way to end this silly old “war on terrorism!”

I’m kinda disappointed that Condi didn’t think of this first, although maybe she has something against walking around in a burqua.

Ya think?!

At any rate, I’m sure the D-Kos version of the Nobel Peace prize awaits this guy;

A Simple Way to End the War on Terror

By Yacka Jah Yacka

While it appears from more than one point of view that the War in Iraq and the War on Terror are situations from which we may never be able to extricate ourselves, from the mountains of Pakistan comes a very simple solution: convert to Islam.

Before we reject this out of hand, lets seriously consider it for a moment: Osama Bin Laden promised the wars would be over if Americans convert to Islam.

This may sound like a lot to ask from the most religious country in the industrialized world. But of all the Christians in America today who profess to be religious, how many of us are seriously devout?

How many of us are really just religious lightweights, happy to simply go to church every Sunday, attend church socials, knock back a drink or two every Christmas and not worry ourselves about the deeper implications of our faith?

Given the way most of us pay any real attention to the tenets of our faith, life really wouldn’t be that different if we were to exchange one faith for another.

The prayers would be different, but we would recite them just as mindlessly as we do today. The sermons would in all likelihood be exactly the same, and we’d continue to snore through them.

Sure, there are a few people here and there who take religion seriously, but they are in such a small minority that their protests can be easily ignored.

All in all, converting to Islam would be a small price to pay for an end to the killing and maiming of our sons and daughters, not to mention the billions of dollars we could put to better use than fighting this perpetual war.

So let’s do away with our religious pretences, adopt Islam as our new faith, add a few extra holidays to our calendar, and get down to the real business at hand: pumping oil.

This guy is joking, right? I mean, he CAN'T be serious!!! Is this really what the Left has sunk to? Well, I'm NOT ready for my burqua, so there goes this clown's peace plan!

It's hard to take any of the annonymous posters at places like D-Kos and the D-Underground at face value poorgrrl, but it's interesting that this loon gets a relatively fair hearing over there, by the same kooks who decry Condi Rice as a "war criminal."

Well, there have been a lot of spoof posts over at D-Kos and a few things that were deleted because they reflected so poorly on that site, WHT.

As Ace over at Ace of Spades HQ says, "this guy may well be a plant," but it's interesting that the same site that had a poster waxing poetic, albeit borrowing heavilly from John Lennon, "Imagine there's no Israel," had this one up and Kossocks happily giving it a "fair hearing."
