Al-Qaeda. The Taliban.

There, I just summed up who we should be fighting. If we're not, that's bad, but it doesn't negate the fact that those people are to our detriment.

We killed the camel jockey. It's just a power play to keep citizens in-line. Obey.

All this BS amazes me. We lose a couple buildings and 3,500 people. We then retaliate by leveling entire cities and killing about 200,000 people.

You don't get trillion dollar defense budgets unless their is a convenient "bad guy" to defend against. Therefore, there will always be a "bad guy".

You forget London, Madrid, Mumbai, Chechnya, Bali, and a few other places.

Yes, these people are a menace.

Turrists, 9/11, money-grub, blah blah blah...

When you go to Europe, you walk through metal-detectors. When you come back to the US, you walk through x-ray machines.

Also made a TSA drone chuckle when I stood in the x-ray machine and said "Yes sir, I am a meat-popcicle."

Was good trip.

Well, if there's one thing our government has proven over the past 11 years, it's that "terrorism" is an effective tool for implementing social changes that the public might otherwise considere repugnant.

Expect more.

Yep.

Hitler took over most of Europe and killed most of that continent's Jewry. Obviously, he won. What the Allies did is irrelevant, because the damage was done.

I refuse to live in a world where farks like that triumph. Make the people who keep blowing up the shiat we give them pay tribute. Restore our freedoms.
 
2012-09-11 12:29:21 PM  
Yeah, 9/11 is tragic I guess. But I'm, like, more into the Blitz. 57 consecutive nights of bombing and 80,000 dead or injured? Living in subway tunnels every night to survive? Now that's something.

That's fine. I don't care if you're an atheist. I DO care that you see the solution to the world's problems to be the elimination of differences in human thought, and see it as acceptable to stereotype people based on the very lowest denominator of belief.

Religious fundamentalists who use violence to further their means. Specifically, in this case, those who follow militant Islam.

It's really hard to accomplish all that when you live in a plutocracy, and not in a democratic republic.

Pretty much that Im more worried about getting run over in an intersection than "terrorists". Im glad I dont have to take the train to work anymore and watch people piss themselves over a unattended bag or something.

I like how the article totally ignores anti-abortion extremists, who are probably the largest group of violent, politically motivated terrorists operating within U.S. borders today.

I was only replying to your statement, "Yes, these people are a menace." I took that to be referring to Muslims. Are you offended to be reminded that your own "god" is responsible for far greater carnage?

They see Western culture as sinful and a threat to their lifestyle, as well as an obstruction to their efforts to spread theocracy based on the conservative interpretation of Islam. The US happens to be the big player in Western culture.

You took it wrong, then.

My "god" isn't responsible for the particular carnage of which you speak. The intolerant who use God as their rallying cry are.
