A cuoco attack I can get behind.

It might be.  Wright quoted a lot of loonies, or he might have used the term independently.  But I was referring to this bit:

On the Justice of Roosting Chickens: Reflections on the Consequences of U.S. Imperial Arrogance and Criminality (goes to Wikipedia).

A spokesman for the group, Shahidullah Shahid, said Monday's assault was "a message to the Pakistan government that we are still alive to react over the killings of innocent people in bomb attacks on their villages".


Wait, bombing people  and blowing up their houses and kids pisses people off? Maybe we should stop doing that when there's no clear objective! Somebody tell Obama!

You have to wonder why Pakistan can't stamp some form of authority on these nutbars. Not a week goes by without some act of savagery being committed in that country.

Turn a blind eye to people using your country as cover to commit crimes long enough because you don't like their victims and sooner or later you'll discover yourself their next target. By the time that happens they have honed their skills and you've got a problem on your hands. The amazing thing is that people who condoned some terrorism are surprised that those same people commit terrorism against someone not on their personal okay to terrorize list.

The US and A is hard to compare with Pakistan.  The US controls its entire area, even West Virginia.  A sizable chunck of Pakistan is pretty effing lawless, and not really controlled by the Pakistani government.  It's the NW section of the country known as the Federally Administrated Tribal Area (FATA),

That would explain more than a few things.  That corner of the world is a hot mess.  I forget who was referring to the FATA as "Binladinstan", but it was pretty clever.

There is no way at all that allowing a region, known for its fanatical devotion to archaic and, by any western-enlightened standards, barbaric and cruel religious and social requirements, to have great and nearly-separate authority over its populace will not come back and bite the host country, either through external responses from countries who are sick of being attacked by such backwards murderous farks or by internal attacks from those same backwards murderous farks against anything in the host country that doesn't fit their backwards, archaic standards.

Nope, no way at all.

None.

Not quite: the Amish have a pretty strong pacifism streak.  I usually compare it with the worst West By God Virginia stereotypes.  Guns, beards, inbreeding and harsh religion.

This is an understandable mix up when you don't know the difference between terrorism and mass murder, lets use Sandy Hook for example since we are trolling with the gun theme. Who am I kidding you don't even know there IS a difference let alone what it is, and I sure as shiat you don't know what the difference between the Pakistan Taliban, Afghan Taliban, Haqqani Network, and Al-Qaeda is let alone how those groups differ regarding terrorism and a mass murder like Sandy Hook. I would be farking shocked if you could tell me who US SECDEF is, let alone an intelligent comment pertaining to the aforementioned terrorist groups, without Google. Alas, there is no way of proving you did or did not Google the answer, I just wanted to express how much of an imbecilic I think you are.

Extremist movements tend to become more extremist over time, and eventually start killing their erstwhile allies if those allies are deemed to be of insufficient ideological purity. There are historical examples going back at least as far as the French Revolution.
