H31N0US: Someone please invent a time machine so I can go back in time and smother Abraham in his crib.

Don't you read history books? You don't need to go back in time. John Wilkes Booth got him already.

what_now: Dr Dreidel: // a bit weird that the Feds used the Alabama NG - a state-controlled militia - to enforce Federal law rather than the actual Army, but whatevs

Not weird at all- using the Army would be a violation of the Posse Comitatus act.

You can ONLY use National Guard troops inside the United States.

Then where the hell are all the guardsmen I work with when they say they are deployed?! LIARS!!!

factoryconnection: There have been widespread protests in Pakistan against the shooting.

In Pakistan, evidently.


master_dman: Where is the outrage and rioting over a 14 yr old girl being shot for going to school?

11:23am. It surprises me not at all that you have not read the thread.

master_dman: Religion of peace people.

To all you apologists out there.. YOU have it backwards.

In Islam.. about 10% are decent upstanding world citizens.
The other 90% want to kill everybody and force sharia law on everyone.

Do you also make up stats for Mitt Romney?

SuperT: what_nowYou cannot stop hatred and ignorance through violence.

the thoughts? no. the ability or will of people to act on that hatred and/or ignorance. absolutely.

For how long? Forever? Do we keep the troops there forever? What's the exit strategy for "Operation Crossing Guard"?

MythDragon: I am thinking Afganistan would make a fine obsidian parking lot.

Well, that wouldn't really stop the Taliban from shooting people in Pakistan, now would it?

what_now: You cannot stop hatred and ignorance through violence.

Technically you can. Kill them all. Those who hate and are ignorant, in that specific area, would be dead. Therefore, hatred and ignorance would be stopped.

Another potential way to do it would be to kill everyone who's more than, say, 5 years old. Past that, take all of the children and adopt them into nice homes in relatively affluent areas. Socialization with the more civilized will take over their training and then you'll have pretty well adjusted folks.

I'm not saying that either of these suggestions are easily doable or should be attempted, but the fact is that one can stop all sorts of things via violence. The proper question is should one do so, and that answer depends on the situation.

what_now: SuperT: This is the sort of shiat I would like to see the fury and might of the US armed forces fix. quite possibly the worst idea I've ever heard.

You've got a group of violent, uneducated twits who think Western values are ruining the world. They have no educational or employment opportunities, and the people running things tell them it's because of the United States.

So...let's kill a bunch of them. The survivors will love us then!

Reagan farked this up. He left Afghanistan in ruins and allowed a generation of boys to grow up as hopeless orphans with absolutely no way of getting out of poverty.

You cannot stop hatred and ignorance through violence.

But you can certainly kill a lot of people. Let's stay with the tour here.
