9/22/2003: Indonesians kick at terror



Oh brother. The official caption says Indonesia's corporately attired Presidential Guards show off their martial art skills at an anti-terror drill in Jakarta. I really don't know what to make of this.

Denbeste has said that Indonesian government's response to the war on terror was originally weak, at least until the huge bombing in Bali. But I'm not sure the response of having an outfit of western-suited martial artist wankers is going to have much of an impact.

Then again, we see repeated video tape of terrorists going over monkey bars as some sort of exercise. It's good training for hijackers because you never know when a jungle gym is going to suddenly present itself from out of nowhere.

Or Maybe it's really tryouts for the chorus line of the new James Bond musical.

What I find quite frightening is that this proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the terrorists are the Good Guys here. I mean, everybody knows that only the Bad Guy is protected by a cadre of kickboxing kung fu monkeys. Were the president actually the Good Guy, he'd be the greatest kickboxer alive, would battle his way through terrorist hordes and finally defeat the terrorist head honcho in a dramatic showdown involving a number of white doves.

Well don't you think OUR Secret Service Agents are trained in the Martial Arts? I think "Presidential Guards" would be the same thing and nothing like Republican Guards. But Bush's Secret Service guys would be Republican Guards. I'm so confused.



dave  Monday Sep 22 05:40 PM

Our guys aren't trained in martial arts because you can't karate chop someone when two bullets have been placed through your mouth.



daniwong  Monday Sep 22 07:25 PM

Well - I know that I am now scared of Indonesia. I mean - mean in suits trained at kick boxing??!!! Saddam better run if they come after him!!!!:p

They must have an executive tailor who's good at reinforcing crotch seams.



bjlhct  Monday Sep 22 11:27 PM

Those explosives are no match for my mad kickboxing skillz!

The sad thing is that there are sillier things being done over here. Library monitoring?

Reminds me of that old joke..."Karate chop from China!"

'.357 Magnum from Smith and Wesson!"

An easycare, stain resistant wool/lycra blend, tailored for the active male. Made in Indonesia, of course.

Actually, you forgot the second line, which is

"Those cats were fast as lightning"



OnyxCougar  Tuesday Sep 23 02:40 PM

Didn't forget it, just wasn't sure if I knew all the words correctly. And I don't know how fast these cats are. So I skipped it, as opposed to looking silly.

      Actually they are, quite heavily as a matter of fact. Just not Kung Fu theater type stuff. So are all law enforcement officers and even soldiers are trained in some basic hand-to-hand in basic training. Of course you can only squeeze so much in to a few weeks of training. I've trained with a lot of cops that wanted to improve their skills beyond the training provided. The Secret Service though? Oh yeah, those guys have years of training. They can do a hell of a lot more than shoot you.

What a bunch of nerds. You think anything underlined is a link.
That's why I clicked it.

Wonder if anyone's wearing a 'cup'?
