Pic of the Day: Battlefield Hookah

Here’s a great picture of a Libyan rebel straight chillin and smoking a hookah while a truck-mounted anti-aircraft gun roars away behind him. Sometimes you just gotta smoke some shisha.

Congrats to the rebels on winning the fight against Gadhafi. Let’s hope Libyan can now become a stable, functioning country that respects human rights.

  1. Well, allowing polygamy and banning bank interest was not a good first step

  2. He's on his union break…

  3. Is the last line of the article a joke?

    The new Libya is started by sodomizing the leader of the old Libya with a knife.
    Stability and human rights aren't on the table. They aren't even in the room.

  4. They already call for Shia law – making it the old boys club all over again. We sure didn't assist them to form a leadership that reverts back to the stone age idealisms. We'll end up going back there and clearing them up again within 5 years.

  5. uhhh, what is that guy shooting at?

    "Congrats to the rebels on winning the fight against Gadhafi. Let’s hope Libyan can now become a stable, functioning country that respects human rights".

  7. I hope they are now more democratic and converted to Christianity.

  8. Bring back the porn.

  9. Why would ANYONE want a democracy? Its MOB rule. You want a REPUBLIC if you want any hope for human rights and protection of the minority (christians)

  10. "The new Libya is started by sodomizing the leader of the old Libya with a knife."

    Milspec- we are speaking out against plenty of other countries in the region, particularly Syria. There just isn't the breadth of support to do anything more robust in those countries.

    As for the bill – we'll get more secure oil flow again, and I'm sure the new government will send favourable contracts our way. Quid pro quo. A great success all round – we could have turned a blind eye and let Gaddafi kill his own people. The new country won't be perfect, but it looks like it will be better than the last lot.

    And as for the guy with the AAA gun – clearly just blasting at nothing, like most of the rebels for most of the war. Frightening – the government will have a job getting all these weapons out of play and ensuring stability. Still, at least he's not blasting a crowd of civilians (hopefully)…

  11. The muslim idea of human rights are very different from ours, expect the beheadings and mutilations to start very soon. My advise to what remains of the Christians in Libya is beat a hasty exit ASAP.

    The new regime will no doubt not conform to international norms that we expect it too, but who cares as long as Gadhafi is dead and we dont have to live with the embarrassment of Tony Blair appeasing him anymore. Check this blog with similar stories. http://coldwarcontinues.blogspot.com/

  13. "Congrats to the rebels on winning the fight against Gadhafi. Let’s hope Libyan can now become a stable, functioning country that respects human rights"

    By far the most ignorant and stupid quote I have ever heard on this website.!!

  14. 1-There are no Christians or Shia in Libya Only Sunni Muslims such as Saudi Arabia and We respect all religions Libyans are not like Gaddafi or bin Laden, we hate them .

    2-sodomizing the leader Was done with a stick not a knife The young man who did it Because his sister was raped by the son of Gaddafi When his troops were besieging Misurata Yes it is wrong, but the young man thought he could take revenge in this way.

    3-I did not know Americans hate Arabs and Libyans remember, we are human beings like you in the eyes of God. Thank you for your help.

    ahmad – libya

  15. Looking at these rebels… how the hell did they win, even with NATO air support bombing all of Gaddafi's tanks?

  16. I told you before you do not know Libya

    This picture is Tripoli Street in Misurata, Gaddafi forces Bombed the street with Grad rockets and artillery for three months NATO aircraft did not intervene in the street, I am sure of this I have relatives who live in this street .

    You say that Libya was stable How Libya was stable Through mass executions Execution of 1200 in two hours and broadcast on state television In order to scare all the people I hope that Gaddafi is burning in hell you do not know Libya
    Look for Tripoli Street in Google

  17. I'll go with the man who knows the street, and has relatives that lives there. It's a crap shoot at best, as to how this will all end, and I'm sure the US has it's own ideas about how Libya should proceed.
    Besides the oil, which is the main interst; lets see how much new military hardware the US and other countries will try to sell Libya.

  18. As if we were there to promote democracy or a benign government.
    We were there for only one reason, to stop the possibility of gold-backed currency affecting the oil markets.

  19. What is that weapon? I was thinking 23mm like off a ZSU23-4.

  20. Just because there is a war on there is no need to forego the creature comforts.

  21. Hay even Al Qaeda terrorist like the Libyan rebels must chill every once in a while too bad Obama supported one bad guy against another bad guy in the end US loses every time.

    You made some provocative points that if you could clarify it would be nice?
    a) Didn't know the flow of oil was unsecured until NATO (US) got involved in their Civil Insurrection.
    b) A Countries gratitude stops at the Bank Door. Saying thank You cost nothing.
    c) Please save the "We did it to Protect the Libyan people" from the bad dictator for the nieve.
    d) How does this Administration choose sides without know anything, nada, zip nothing about who represents our "quote" SIDE
    e) Could the reason for the intervention and subsequent Butchering of Gaddafi and Sons be tied to the $33 to $200 Billion that the Gaddafi Family is reported to have squirreled away. With the connection of the Gaddafis to the $$$ dead( literally) how much will simply go POOF

  23. Hopefully, they got the 140 billion in Libyan gold down to friendly countries further south. That way the western "bankers" (you know who I mean) won't get ahold of it, and it will be of use to a future, less naive and hopefully less externally manipulated Libyan population.

  24. Celebrate and congratulate? Now women have no rights under Islamic law _ who's writing your script Obama or H.Clinton?

    religion and government don't mix well. Ahmad US warplanes and personnel helped you gain ur freedom. Its up to you and ur ppl to determine wat direction ur country takes. Also, we intervened in Bosnia, Kosovo, saving thousands of moslems. In return, those same ppl were turning up dead and captured in Iraq. How short moslem memories are, wen its convienient for THEM.

  26. Libya already declared that their government would be based on Sharia law and at least one government building is flying an Al-Queda's flag.

    Persecution of non-muslims in Egypt started right after their dictator was ousted, expect this soon in Libya. Congrats Obama and NATO, you just created another Somalia…

  27. Congrats to the rebels on winning the fight against Gadhafi. Let’s hope Libyan can now become a stable, functioning country that [b]sells us their oil[/b].


  28. o sorry i think that was my hookah i left the last rammadan

  29. A little "hubbly-bubbly" sure does make his day a little smoother…
