atomicmask: I am crazy? Friend you are the one thinking that any resolution with a violent ideology other then total war is going to occur ever. One side is already engaged in it, maybe we should drop the pretenses and bullshiat and get with the program.


Take another pill, climb back in your bottle. MOST of us want to live out our lives. The violent ideology is yours...

And what side is involved in violent war? How many countries are we in?

You sound like a drunk fire control tech on my submarine. "Let's start a nuclear war so we can FIX THINGS".

Seek help.l

ive said it before,ill say it again. bring all our people home. draw a line on the map and add a caption"there be monsters there" and be done with the whole area. learn to do without thier resources,develop the ones we actually have and just be done with all these rotten people. weve been placating pakistan for centurys and they are more rotten now then they have ever been. afghanistan seems to think that with our withdrawal that they get to be on our welfare system forever and ive actually read that they "expect payments in excess of several billion dollars anually in perpetuality" its time to shut the door. we got the bad guy but we havent done a thing to stem the tide of thier continued hatred of the west, well guess what,we hate you as well. we didnt want to,we have tried for years to be your freinds,but it just aint working out so you can keep your beatles albums and CAR STEVENS!,but we just need to go our separate ways. hope it works out for you but dont think for a minute we aint gonna do what we have to to protect our way of life(thats right,things are gonna be pointed at you with little buttons that will send a lot of you to allah a little sooner then you had planned.enough is enough. sure,we wont be able to burn 200 gallons of fuel in our bassboats every weekend like we used to,but we will figure it out. and im sure that you will find new trading partners to kiss your ass for a while but eventually,you will develop a hatred for them too(like those buhda loving folks that you destroyed thier timeless statues cause alla h wouldnt have approved them residing on the lands you conquered) sorry we couldnt make it work but the best to you and your leaders. im sure they only have YOUR best interests in mind when they encourage jihad against most of the modern world WE ALL LIVE IN.

meyerkev: jtown: talkertopc: I read it as "An armada of US and British naval power is missing in the Persian Gulf" the first time. I just finished reading the Axis of Time trilogy so that might explain it.

I thought the same thing and I have no idea what the Axis of Time trilogy is so that may not explain it.

Short version:

In an alternate 2021, a UN carrier group goes missing off Indonesia, and pops up in 1942 just prior to the Battle of Midway, and accidentally wipes out the US Pacific fleet upon arrival. Some scatter also hands Hitler, Yamamoto, and Stalin bits and pieces of "uptime" technology. Mostly deals with culture differences (racism), implications of limited tech transfer, and what happens when (among other things) Stalin gets advance word of the Cold War in 1942, when he can actually do something about it.

/Also, it was written not too long after 9/11, so there are references to the whole "War against Islam" thing getting really, really nasty.

Or just laser tag. Let's get all the leaders of the Middle East together, lock them in a big warehouse and make it a 'last man standing gets the whole region' thing.

We can even televise it.


Oh, that sounds fun too :)
So nuclear war next weekend :P

This is about as no-win a situation as Obummer could get. No matter what he does, he's fuked in the eyes of the voter because he has had nearly 4 years to do something about this, but all he did was show weakness. So Iran is feeling froggy and I expect Egypt to jump into the game one the shooting starts.

And Obummer said that muslims would start to like us if he got elected. HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa. What a joke we have for a president.

atomicmask: mediablitz: atomicmask: mediablitz: atomicmask: what I hope it is- A massive coop strike by 25 nations to hit every islamic nation rioting or attacking embassies over the past 3 days.


You are farking nuts.

Nah, just aware of the world wide situation and not kidding myself anymore. Lets get it over with, one last great crusade against islam, while we still have a penny to spend in the fight and the means to take the fight to them.

Oh yeah. You're definitely crazy. Completely farking clueless, shortsighted, and crazy...

I am crazy? Friend you are the one thinking that any resolution with a violent ideology other then total war is going to occur ever. One side is already engaged in it, maybe we should drop the pretenses and bullshiat and get with the program.


So I assume you're in the military, then? I only ask because I was in the Army and I got shot fighting Muslims for no good reason, and it seems like whenever I hear sentiments like yours the person expressing them is a fat, balding middle-aged dimwit, a middle manager type, who wanted to serve in the military, honest to god, but it just didn't work out for some reason, imagine that.

Obama is so weak, he let Bin Laden hide in Pakistan for 7 years and never really thought about him. Oh wait, no, that was Bush. Yeah, Obama's really weak on terrorists. That's why they're attacking embassies in their own countries and not flying planes into buildings.

Many people on the internet aren't anti-Semitic or anything. They just started saying how Israel should be blamed for this when it's nothing but a military exercise for all the nations that hate Israel and also happy to be huge buyers of military weapons sold by America.

yeah, it's much wiser to ignore them for 8 long years as they repeatedly make small scale strikes against the US and its interests as we build up a reputation as a "Paper tiger" and they build their courage.

Otherwise known as the clinton-doctrine.

They sent a destroyer. When you're waving your dick around over a minor surface combatant, you've drawn down your force WAY too much.

I wonder if they bothered to arm it this go-round?
