More thinly disguised satire from the incomperable Iowahawk:
Apologetic Mumbai Killers: “We Didn’t Get the Memo About Obama”
MUMBAI – Ajmal Amir Kasab, the sole surviving member of the 10-man team of Pakistani gunmen that left hundreds dead or wounded after a bloody three day rampage in Mumbai, today blamed the mayhem on an “email mixup” that left him and his colleagues unaware that Barack Obama had won election as President of the United States.
“What? Oh bloody hell, now you tell me,” said Kasab, as he was led away in handcuffs by Indian security forces.
Kasab, 21, apologized to Indian President Pratibha Patil, explaining that no one in his group had known about the recent U.S. election results.
“Boy, talk about having egg on the face,” said a visibly embarrassed Kasab. “If we knew Bush was on his way out, obviously we would have called off the crazy random baby-shootings and martyrdom stuff, and signed on with the Peace Corps or Habitat for Humanity. At this point I guess all I can say is ‘my bad.'”
“Seriously, I can’t even begin to tell you how shitty the whole situation makes me feel,” he added dejectedly. “Don’t get me wrong, I’m as thrilled as everybody else to find out Barack won the election, but this moment is always going to be bittersweet knowing that all those shootings were tragically unnecessary. Not to mention the six weeks I wasted in training camp.”
Kasab, who is personally suspected of killing over 30 victims at point-blank range in a posh Mumbai hotel, was at a loss to explain how he and other members of the terrorist assault team remained unaware of the historic U.S. election results that many American analysts predicted would lead to an immediate and permanent outbreak of rapturous harmony and transcendent brotherly love throughout the universe.
Think about the consequences of Obama’s election; whether Islamic douchebags will be happy enough that a sympathizer is in the Oval Office, and how they’ll react. Whether they will declare peace instead of jihad if Obama kow tows, or if they’ll exploit the opportunity and take advantage of a leftwing military-despising milksop, with no clue or desire to protect America’s security here or abroad.
David Burge’s satire is closer to the truth than you think.
