Time For Iraqi & Kurdish Bloggers To Donate Towards The Katrina Relief Effort As The Iraqi Soldiers Did
Evil Omar Fadhil at ITM, Charles at LGF, and a host of other bloggers have picked up on the story of the Iraqi Soldiers led by Colonel Abbas Fadhil donating One Million Dinars
to the Hurricane Katrina Relief Effort:
“I am Colonel Abbas Fadhil; Tadji Military Base Commander,” Abbas wrote. “On behalf of myself and all the People of Tadji Military Base; I would like to console the American People and Government for getting this horrible disaster. So we would like to donate 1.000.000 Iraqi Dinars to help the government and the People also I would like to console all the ASTs who helped us rebuilding our country and our Army. We appreciate the American’s help and support. Thank you.”
While One Million Iraqi Dinars -- approximately $680 dollars -- doesn't go as far as it use to, it's still a touching Humanitarian Gesture by the Colonel and his men, giving up the equivalent of one month's salary to help the unfortunate Americans out. Or as Colonel Abbas says, “We are all brothers...When one suffers tragedy, we all suffer their pain.”
Thank You Colonel and the other Iraqis for your nice words, but more important contribution.
Now, it's time for the Iraqi and Kurdish Bloggers to
do the same. Nice thoughts regarding the tragedy from the various Iraqi and Kurdish Bloggers are fine, but it's better for them to start whipping out their checkbooks and making a donation, like the Colonel and his men did to thank the United States for their efforts towards Iraqi and Kurdish Democracy. It's only fair.
My suggested list of donations from the various
Iraqi and Kurdish Bloggers are as follows:
Raed Jarrar from Raed in The Muddle - 20 Million Dinars - Let's keep shoving a pitchfork up his Fat Baathist Ass until he coughs up the money. He can afford it, and would only spend it on a fourth Mercedes.
Fayrouz from Iraqi in America - 1 Dinar - Fay is a Candidate
for Sainthood and undergoing Beatificaton as we speak, so we have to cut her a lot of slack.
Evil Omar Fadhil from ITM - Four Million Dinars - Evil Omar, International Man of Mystery is raking in the dinars from his Iraqi Dentistry Gig, his ITM advertisements, and his many appearances at the Playboy Mansion to clean Hef's and the Playmates' Teeth.
Ladybird from Baghdad Dweller - 200 Million Dinars - Ladybird is penalized for her WAY Over The Top And Out Of Line post on the youngest Iraqi killed by the
Americans. First of all, we don't know the circumstances of the baby's death, and secondly, posting a picture of a fetus is yellow journalism. Ladybird's Baghdad Dweller has de-evolved into a purely Anti-American Propaganda Outlet and we hate her for it, and are calling for an American Invasion of the Netherlands to silence her. Well, maybe not.
Alaa from the Messoptamian - 10 Dinars - Alaa
can't even get a functioning Email Address, never mind contributing any significant amount of money.
Zeyad from Healing Iraq - Two Million Dinars - Zeyad has left Iraq and is giving Firewalking demonstrations
in Tahiti at the moment. One Million Dinars for
each of his burnt soles.
Kurdo's World - Two million Dinars - Kurdo has disappeared and so has his vast Kurdish fortune made from Smuggling Diamonds out of the famous Kurdish Diamond Mines in Kirkuk. We found a few loose diamonds to help out things.
Sam from Hammorabi - One Dinar - Sam bought
the Ayatollah Sistani a new Cadillac Escalade with bulletproof hubcaps and doesn't have any money.
Medya from Medya Daily - 10 Dinars - Kurdish-Iranian Medya is just skin and bones and needs to use his money for other purposes like eating, eating, and eating some more. And have Ben & Jerry parachute in a lifetime supply of Wavy Gravy and ChunkSpelunker.
Dilnareen, Vladimir, and Piling from Kurdistan Bloggers Union - Three Million Dinars - One Million Dinars each from each of the trio. Dilnareen, currently modelling in Paris, can pickpocket the funds from the haughty members of
the French Socialist Fashion Press.
Najma from A Star from Mosul - Ten Million Dinars - No More Vacation Trips To The Baathist Paradise Of Syria for you Young Lady.
Salam Pax from Shut Up You Fat Whiner - One Billion Dinars - For not allegedly shooting Raed Jarrar when you had the chance. Ahhhh, maybe Salam was worried about one of Raed's infamous lawsuits...
