First the Marine Corps 229th Birthday...and now this!!! A great day.Palestinian Leader Yasser Arafat DiesWednesday, November 10, 2004PARIS — Yasser Arafat (search), who triumphantly forced his people's plight into the world spotlight but failed to achieve his lifelong quest for Palestinian statehood, died Thursday at age 75.All I can say is........GOOD!!!!!!!!
This is MOST inconvenient!Now instead of visiting Punchbowl National Cemetary to honor some fallen comrades in arms, I have to grab a cooking pot and a wooden spoon and march up and down the street outside banging away in celebration.Damn that Arafat, an asshole even in death!
If only Castro would kick the can....
The best explanation for his prolonged fade-out was that he's actually been dead for two weeks, but when he started to smell worse than the French nurses, they finally had to "declare" him. :D
Here's the response from the French...French President Jacques Chirac said: "With him disappears a man of courage and conviction who for 40 years embodied the Palestinians' struggle for recognition of their national rights." http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=578&e=1&u=/nm/20041111/ts_nm/mideast_dc
