This morning while we were going through our email we came across a notification of a comment on one of our old blog postings here on TTB.
The posting that prompted the comment was our commentary on Barack Obama’s speech directed toward the leaders and people of the Islamic Republic of Iran back in March:
The commenter dubbed himself “Mahdi,” which we think highly presumptuous on his part, but we suppose every man is entitled to his own delusions.
For those TTB readers who aren’t entirely familiar with the term “Mahdi,” here is a brief rundown:
We think that rather than “Mahdi” perhaps a more fitting handle for this commenter might be “Moron.” But perhaps “Moron” and “Mahdi” actually mean the same thing. That’s something certainly worth looking into…
We did some tracking and Mr. Mahdi has a blog himself:
On that blog, Mr. Mahdi has posted a picture of himself. (We’d post pictures of ourselves on TTB as well, but we don’t want to have to handle all the incoming fan mail from adoring female fans in the Western world, but I digress…)
We don’t speak Farsi or Persian or Gibberish so we can’t tell what Mr. Mahdi has posted on his web site, but judging from all the photos of the Supreme Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, we have a general idea of the tone anyway.
Here are some other photos of Ayatollah Khamenei which may give clues to just what type of web site Mr. Mahdi is running…(not that there is anything wrong with that!)
By now you might be wondering what Mr. Mahdi posted in his comment to TTB. Well, here it is:
Death to America
the blood in our veins is a gift to our leader(Khamenei)
It’s not particularly original. The Iranian jihadists have been singing that same old sorry tune for 30 years now. But I guess it’s the best Mr. Mahdi could come up with so, we’ll give him a free pass…
Oh, we responded to Mr. Mahdi’s comment with a comment of our own, which we thought was particularly relevant to his offer to shed blood (and other bodily fluids, no doubt) for his “leader.” It’s pretty self-explanatory.
“No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country.
He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.”
General George S. Patton, Jr.
So, thank you for playing Mr. Mahdi, you can go back to what ever it is that you do over on your blog (not that there is anything wrong with that…)
