When your boss is in favor of blocking Syrian refugees, your words sound trite and foolish, Nikki.

Poor Nikki, she lost her integrity.

Imagine you are the parent of a boy -- a teenager. Policemen come to your home in the middle of the night and take your boy away. He is held without explanation for weeks

But enough about ICE!

Donnie just realizes that Syrian refugees don't have babies, just tiny bomb makers. Duh. It's terrible when you show your ignorance. Syrians and Iranians don't have babies, but spawn asexually, because they HATE women, except for the Pashtun, who are totes cool and human, even if they worship a funny god. Educate yourself, Lib.

They cut off the end of the article.  I missed the part where she summed up by saying that was why the U.S. needed to stop whisking people away and to tone down the violent rhetoric towards everyone.

I can't believe CNN would leave off the end like that.

Hey. Look at that.

Apparently Nikki Haley just found out about the torturing of teens by Assad for the last 6 years.

Nice to see Trump's pick for the UN start to catch up on this stuff, I guess.

Yeah, the fingernail thing is horrible.

Wait till she finds out about the castrations.

THIS dammit.  If the Syrian civil war is a such a human rights disaster, why are we refusing to help people get away from that?  This is literally what Trump ran on.  He didn't give a rat's ass about Syrian children drowning in the ocean trying to reach Europe.  All he (and his knuckle-dragging supporters) could see was potential terrorists sneaking in among the refugees.  Then some "beautiful babies" get killed with nerve gas and it's the end of the farking world?  Give me a break.  Either you care about dead kids or you don't, make up your mind.  Don't run a year-long campaign centered on the idea that those "beautiful babies" were going to sneak into the US and grow up to institute Sharia law, then turn around and act like you give a shiat all of a sudden.  It's farking transparent.

They made an entire political campaign around one notion: bullying the less fortunate.  Refugees, immigrants, minorities, even people with physical disabilities.  Making fun of them helps Make America Great Again!

But all of a sudden these farking hypocrites want me to believe they give a shiat about some brown people who have never played golf and who CERTAINLY don't have an account with Goldman.

2017-04-20 09:37:03 PM  
It would seem logical to help prevent and quickly eradicate uprisings for which the single purpose is to overrun an established government, as this always precedes the claims of serious human rights violations by those governments defending their countries.  Especially if the rebels involve try to pretend that they are going to create a wonderful democracy in the place they are starting a war.

The problem, though, is that a lot of the rebel groups (and the ones in the best positions to take over if Assad goes down) are at LEAST as bad as Assad. And if we get an "America-friendly" government in there...well, we saw how well that worked in Iraq.

There's really no good answer. But we, and the rest of the "first world", should be helping people get the fark out of there, even if it means a few "poisoned Skittles".
 
2017-04-20 10:05:38 PM  
So let me get this straight...since our government has taken a jackassed position on refugees, we're supposed to just turn a blind eye to horrors like these?

I've really had enough of the "but your side sucks because ___ so fark you" every farking time an issue comes up. Is it not possible to simultaneously be opposed to the approach to the refugee crisis, AND think that it's a disaster to just let systematic torture flourish around the world?

Yeah, I get it, the US shouldn't have to be the World Police. That's what the UN is for...and this is an example of our UN ambassador standing against evil shiat, and calling on the UN to do something about it. fark if you hate her, who cares? Are we NOT supposed to call shiat out like this at the UN?  Does any and every sin we've ever committed as a nation mean that we no longer have the responsibility to point out shiat that's even more evil?

I know, I know, I'm supposed to "resist" no matter what, and never give praise when anyone with an (R) next to their name says something good, because hey, go team (D), amirite?

You farkers are starting to sound like the crowd that gathers gawking at central park when a woman gets raped, and doesn't want to get involved because "conflict is bad."

And seriously, I love you all, 95% of the time, but FFS, when you can't even agree with "torturing kids is bad" because the wrong person said it, you're just being farking ridiculous.  Yes, we have a shiatgibbon for president right now, but that doesn't mean we're not the USA anymore.

No the point is that this is insincere farking bullshiat aimed at justifying what they want to do. If they were sincere about humanitarian causes they would walk the walk. They do NOT.

And no, if you think 'the USA' means a country that cares a shiat about human rights you are not that any more.

Ok I am new and likely to get ripped apart because I haven't been on fark for years but I figured I can say something even knowing it will tick some people off.
I don't care if you carry a D or R as your party. Torture is wrong.
Yeah I get that hearing someone from Trumps camp spout poetic about how wrong it is kinda makes one wonder if their hearing is sound but the fact remains it shouldn't happen. Standing up to say it is wrong is the right thing to do. Of course it would make more sense to follow with actions such as helping refugees.
Saying that just because it came from someone in Trumps camp automatically makes it meaningless is wrong.
I personally think that it is important that the UN does what it can but I know that they are hamstrung and there isn't much that will change. Fighting for the refugees trying to escape is where I think the best outcome will happen.

I am not advocating to let them all in. I believe that torture is happening and not just in the middle east. One of the things that Trump has said is that he thinks waterboarding is acceptable and I think it is torture. No administration should allow torture.
I am not sure why asking why an administration would advocate for torture is a question that needs to be asked. If they are using torture they are trying to take shortcuts to get the answers they want and when they get those answers they feel the means were acceptable.  The reality is that someone who is being tortured will likely give you whatever answer they think will get you to stop.

I think jumping from all to a few is quite a leap. I didn't mention either extreme.  We cannot fix the middle east. That is something that it seems many fail to grasp. I do not think it is something that we will be able to ever fix, but that does not mean that we should not try to help those who need it.
Just so you don't jump to the conclusion that I feel it is the United States job to police the world, I do not. But speaking to the UN isn't wrong. Pointing out that there are issues that should be looked into isn't wrong. Asking for help for people being tortured isn't wrong. Looking at what is happening in the world and saying well it's not my problem is wrong. If we just sit back and ignore what is happening around the world and do nothing then we are the problem.

Kind of yes and kind of no. It is not the US that should be the police nor is it the UN.  It isn't wrong to look into the problem but we also have to accept we have no solutions. We can help with social programs and accept properly vetted refugees and assimilate them into our society. The UN countries can do the same.

But we have a president that seems to look at the babbys being killed and uses force to fix the problem. That didn't go well, did it? We have seen them before. Bush jr. and his WMD misinformation ie. lies. There were none. That gave help to the rise of ISIS because he destabilized a stable but evil govt. It was the same in Afghanistan.  They claim that in Iraq we are winning and the ISIS is losing. I claim bullshiat.

NK is an issue but not a big one yet and I don't think it will be one. We can flex all of our muscle but when China sees it as an issue it is just us posturing. I think they know more than us. When push comes to shove they will do what they have to do.

Oh! We sent the Vinson to NK to intimidate them. Of sorry, I lost them. I thought I sent them. Well, I tweeted I sent them. It came to me in a dream.

Wild cards. The Fat One and the Fat One. Both are in the lower IQ range.

It is all very complex. Kind of like a dominoes game. The last one standing wins.

Pointing out that there are issues that should be looked into isn't wrong. Asking for help for people being tortured isn't wrong. Looking at what is happening in the world and saying well it's not my problem is wrong. If we just sit back and ignore what is happening around the world and do nothing then we are the problem.

Kind of yes and kind of no. It is not the US that should be the police nor is it the UN.  It isn't wrong to look into the problem but we also have to accept we have no solutions. We can help with social programs and accept properly vetted refugees and assimilate them into our society. The UN countries can do the same.

But we have a president that seems to look at the babbys being killed and uses force to fix the problem. That didn't go well, did it? We have seen them before. Bush jr. and his WMD misinformation ie. lies. There were none. That gave help to the rise of ISIS because he destabilized a stable but evil govt. It was the same in Afghanistan.  They claim that in Iraq we are winning and the ISIS is losing. I claim bullshiat.

NK is an issue but not a big one yet and I don't think it will be one. We can flex all of our muscle but when China sees it as an issue it is just us posturing. I think they know more than us. When push comes to shove they will do what they have to do.

Oh! We sent the Vinson to NK to intimidate them. Of sorry, I lost them. I thought I sent them. Well, I tweeted I sent them. It came to me in a dream.

Wild cards. The Fat One and the Fat One. Both are in the lower IQ range.

It is all very complex. Kind of like a dominoes game. The last one standing wins.

The biggest treat to the world now is Trump. The Other Fat One has threatened us for years. The best maintained ship in his navy is the Pueblo. Kinda cool they preserved it.

The Vinson was never delayed, according to the Navy. It was never headed there. Well, Spicer and Trump admitted it. Pence was there because of the Other Fat One was celebrating his grand papas birthday and showing solidarity. The thing that didn't make make sense to me was they were playing war games at the time. Why send a carrier group into the war games?

SergeantObvious: So let me get this straight...since our government has taken a jackassed position on refugees, we're supposed to just turn a blind eye to horrors like these?

I've really had enough of the "but your side sucks because ___ so fark you" every farking time an issue comes up. Is it not possible to simultaneously be opposed to the approach to the refugee crisis, AND think that it's a disaster to just let systematic torture flourish around the world?

Yeah, I get it, the US shouldn't have to be the World Police. That's what the UN is for...and this is an example of our UN ambassador standing against evil shiat, and calling on the UN to do something about it. fark if you hate her, who cares? Are we NOT supposed to call shiat out like this at the UN?  Does any and every sin we've ever committed as a nation mean that we no longer have the responsibility to point out shiat that's even more evil?

I know, I know, I'm supposed to "resist" no matter what, and never give praise when anyone with an (R) next to their name says something good, because hey, go team (D), amirite?

You farkers are starting to sound like the crowd that gathers gawking at central park when a woman gets raped, and doesn't want to get involved because "conflict is bad."

And seriously, I love you all, 95% of the time, but FFS, when you can't even agree with "torturing kids is bad" because the wrong person said it, you're just being farking ridiculous.  Yes, we have a shiatgibbon for president right now, but that doesn't mean we're not the USA anymore.


You realize that at its simplest this is a 4 way war and that we have bombed 3 of the sides in the last 30 days?
Trump has no cognizate policy of plan.  Heck he might just get frustrated one day and drop Nukes on the whole place.
