Seriously? It has come to this?

After 10 long years, the US military and the Taliban are fighting it out…

On twitter?


  1. This sounds like an idea Kevin Rudd would’ve come up with.

    • Oi. Since I have your attention, what’s the deal on the GOP POTUS race?

      • The GOP is willfully self-destructing.
        I’m writing in ‘Paco’.

        • Well, yes. PACO.

          Unless you counter, I’ll take that as a 2016 Jeb Bush endorsement.

          Shame about Herman Cain. Bill Clinton was never vetted like that.

          Ho hum. The 999 plan was probably too radical.

    • Carpe Jugulum
    • December 22nd, 2011

    Actually this sounds like something swan would come up with.

    • Or Rob Oakeshott.

  2. It’s hard to say who is winning the war of words. If the number of followers is the benchmark, @isafmedia is far ahead. Over the past year, the number of users following the coalition has swelled from 736 to nearly 18,000. The two Taliban accounts — @alemarahweb, which mainly links to news releases and official statements, and the more pugnacious @ABalkhi — have just over 9,000 combined.

    And Sockington the Cat has 1,459,522.

    So there ya go.

    • I’m on twitter, so it’d be a bit hypocritical to be “against” it…

      But seriously: the Afghan war’s battle for the hearts and minds played out on it?

      All very ironic, of course, since twitter is an American invention, an add-on to another American invention – the internet – which is only possible due to another American invention – electricity – and all done in English; globally popularised by American and English Hegemony.

      It all seems a bit childish.

  1. No trackbacks yet.

Surely you're thinking something...
