  • ISIS: a blight on humanity

    The beheadings and burning alive of prisoners and now the desecration of ancient historical sites. These guys are just fucking monsters.

    ISIS bulldozes ruins of ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud, Iraqi ministry says - CNN.com

    The taliban did the same thing in Afganistan.
    This clusterfvck is a 1300 year old civil war between the Sunni and the Shia. We have to stay out or only get involved as a member of the United Nations which would include ACTIVE support of all the mid-East states. So far the Sunni states are supporting isis, including Turkey who could stop them in minutes if they so wished.
    Any intervention on our part will cost hundreds of billions of dollars and hundreds or thousands of young American lives with ten times the casualties and piss-off most of the Muslim world. In the end nothing will have changed or have been accomplished.

      I agree with everything you said. Just pointing out how absolutely dispicable they are.

              If you want to reduce the Irish struggle to that sentence, then i won't disagree. But, to think is can be reduced to something that simplistic is naive.

                It's not about "reducing the Irish struggle" to anything. It was merely an observation, originally made by the Pope I think, that Isis is no more a good representative of Islam than the IRA was a good representative of Catholicism. I don't see what's wrong with that statement. He's only trying to help reduce any backlash against Muslims, simply because they are Muslims and Isis claims to represent Islam.

                  The IRA statement sounds right. It doesn't say that Ireland shouldn't be independent, and it doesn't say that Sunnis shouldn't have a state in the region. It's just saying that they are both violent groups that do not follow the true spirit of their religion.

                          Not to burst any impenetrable bubbles and to bring things to an important reality: it's "PADDY," not "PATTY!"

                          This is an area of "common usage" where I will not bend. I sure as hell won't break!

                            I think this is the truer statement and what nsisk157 was talking about.
                            Maybe it's far too soon to tell.

                              I was unaware that the IRA wanted to institute strict Catholic Canon Law in Ulster, the county the British stole from them. That, of course, raises the question: if you steal something from someone, how long is it until it is yours?

                                We should negotiate with ISIS.

                                              Crazy article. It's an interview with an American currently fighting for ISIS, and an interview with her family still in the states. The cognitive dissonance displayed by Hoda is astounding. She in one breath encourages people in the United States to "wake up" and "go on drive-bys and spill all their blood" ... but then is not willing to disclose her last name because she fears for the safety of her family in the United States.

                                              HEY EVERYONE! SOW TERROR AND DISCORD! MURDER INDISCRIMINATELY! Oh... but like... you know... skip that house because that's my family... BUT KILL ALL THE OTHER FAMILIES! PRAISE ALLAH!

                                                    I assume she's more worried about her former neighbors in Alabama than the US government.
