This is what happens when you take nomadic tribes of sheep herders living in the bronze age and try to bring them into the modern age within the span on a century.

Can't moderate a thread and post in it.  Plus, it isn't off topic as much as off the pulse of the posters in thread.  Thank you for posting, please enjoy the remainder of your posting experience.

Silly Jesus: kbronsito: Angry mob lashes out against people that had nothing to do with the source of their anger damage property and kill four (OMG HOW BARBARIC THIS IS AN OUTRAGE).

Angry mob in charge of the most powerful military in the world lashes out and bomb's country that had nothing to do with what they were angry about needlessly sacrificing civilians and troops, causing untold property damage and death (Meh. C'est la vie).

I see where you're going with this...and as much as you disagree with it, our reasons for doing it (going to war) were still better than "you talked about my sky wizard and it hurt my feelings so I need to kill someone."


Which reasons? Lining Halliburton's coffers with gold from our treasury? Giving Cheney, GWB and company a way to test their dumbass theories about geopolitics by letting them secure a permanent US military presence in the heart of the Mideast? Allowing GWB to avenge the assassination attempt on his dad so he could feel like a man instead of a boy? And its not like the people calling for the invasion didn't tap into the religious fears and fervor of America's Christians to get what they wanted.

When criticized, Newsweek has argued that it is trying to start conversations and run sharp-elbowed opinion pieces by people from across the political spectrum.

Wow. That's the textbook definition of "trolling"....

Whenever people react like this it shows their inability to understand how the rest of the world makes decisions.
The American people think: "oh those wacky fundies are breaking stuff again and making a lot of noise"
Future and current politicians think :"Let's go ahead and move these countries to the top of the "Who we are going to bomb next" list."

It is like constantly repeating cycles.

even in the early islamic era they kept the knowledge of the greeks and romans(and added to it) safe from potato headed bookburners in europe. I feel like we need to return the favor.

wikipedia: The Last Temptation of Christ

Attack on Saint Michel theater, Paris


On October 22, 1988, a French Christian fundamentalist group launched Molotov cocktails inside the Parisian Saint Michel movie theater while it was showing the film. This attack injured thirteen people, four of whom were severely burned.[8][9] The Saint Michel theater was heavily damaged,[9] and reopened 3 years later after restoration.
...
The leader of Christian Solidarity, a Roman Catholic group that had promised to stop the film from being shown, said, "We will not hesitate to go to prison if it is necessary."[9]

The attack was subsequently blamed on a Christian fundamentalist group linked to Bernard Antony, a representative of the far-right National Front to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, and the excommunicated followers of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.[8] Lefebvre had been excommunicated from the Catholic Church on July 2, 1988. Similar attacks against theatres included graffiti, setting off tear-gas canisters and stink bombs, and assaulting filmgoers.[8] At least nine people believed to be members of the Catholic fundamentalist group were arrested.[8]

The magazine covers are kind of funny, the "conservative humor" in here is somewhat offensive, but really, the unacceptable violence from the Muslim community does not get the sh*thead who made the movie off the hook.

Sorry if that makes a few of you mad.

hubiestubert: On a serious note: if folks don't understand by now that there is a lot of resentment about policies and actions over the last 75 years in regard to the Middle East by folks from the West, then a single article isn't really going to dispel or educate that degree of any self awareness or sense of history.

Look at the dismantling of Iran's greatest democracy, authored by Western powers, and reinstallation of the Shah after being deposed. Look at Afghanistan's cynical use to oust the Russians, and consequent abandonment. Look at the plight of the Palestinians--who, to be quite fair, were just not quite as quick off the gate to get their own chunk of pie as the Jews were; and to be fair, they didn't have backers with quite as deep pockets. Look at Libya. Look at Syria. Look at Iraq. Look at how we've encouraged the most radical elements, when it suited our purposes, and how quick we have been to disavow them. Look at the policies that the US has advocated publicly, and then sandbagged when it came time to real negotiations.

There are folks in the Middle East who will NEVER trust a damn thing ANYONE from the US government says in policy, and were our roles reversed, we wouldn't either. Why are so many angry? They actually paid attention in history...



Shut up! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
/Be like Texas. Ban critical thinking.
