How else do you expect the Chinese to perform human experiments for bio-weapons, gene "therapy"/alteration and cheap labor.

"We would never specifically target specific regions, ethnic groups or religions, much less the Uighurs," Anayat said. "We would never wrong the good, nor release the bad."

I'm sure concerned anti-woke realists will point to the fact that they keep getting arrested as proof that they are actually terrorists. Any further thought into this is liberal college brainwashing.

I'm all for WWIII if that's what it takes to remove Russia and China from the equation.
We can throw in Israel for good measure, because what they are doing to the Palestinians is in fact genocide and absolutely inexcusable and a stain upon the US for supporting them. And of course we'd have to nuke the Southern States for good measure, we can call it "nuclear medicine", you know... to eradicate the cancer

What the flying fark? For one, the "people of Palestine" do not "enjoy blindly firing rockets." There are some groups who think that it's justified, but painting the members of literally an entire country as terrorists is some DEEEEEPLY racist shiat.

For two, so what? Some people did a terrorism, so genocide is justified?

Actually more like Hispanics and not just any Hispanics, their ancestors were the professionals who managed one of the greatest transport routes in world history.   It's about geography and moving boundaries.  The Uighurs were at the last truck stop on the Silk Road into China.   They've been there about 2000 years.  The Silk Road declined when sailing ships eclipsed  the land routes and the Roman and other empires of the time declined.

The road had trained people from all technologies running the freight system of the Mediterranean to the Chinese Empire.  They ran government taxing offices, stagecoach inns the size of major malls, had translators and notaries, cooks, hotel management, stable management, and security against bandits and robbers who would take care the immense wealth passing through.   The area is still home to Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, Mongols, Tajiks, Uzbeks and Tatars, who have been there for at least 2000 years.


Imagine a space station staffed for intergalactic commerce with merchants from every end of the universe.

I didn't pick up the racism - The elected government in Palestine (and separate gov't in Gaza) both hold "destruction of the state of Israel" as a core policy. The last elections in Gaza were quite a while ago, but this is what people voted for. As long as state-supported actors attack Israel there can be no peace. As long as there are counterattacks, people in Palestine/Gaza will be justifiably mad enough to support more rocket strikes. Also, the blockade of Gaza prevents the import of more damaging weapons, but perpetuates the grinding poverty that makes people willing to fight.

It's a viscious cycle as both sides are somewhat "justified" in perpetuating a cycle of violence, and there are real costs to being the first one to break it.

/There's no question that Israel should STOP expanding illegal settlements. This is an unnecessary provocation.
//The rest is more challenging. Attempting to "turn the other cheek" to rocket strikes isn't a serious option for any Israeli government that wants to stay in power.

Not saying any of this is justified, but there is some backstory.

Puke is just doing his own Manifest Destiny.  Sure he should probably be stopped. But. It IS interesting it us of all people.  I don't see why that shouldn't be pointed out. Fu*k.
Also. You do realize you make it should humanity would be doomed without America.  🙄
Need I remind you the world didn't end when we left Vietnam.   We love to have a hard on for Red Boogie man. But, the rhetoric doesn't match what actually ended up happening.
Come on a nation of slave masters think they should be the police of Earth.
Get, real half this Nation wants to control the cervix, and they want to pervert KIDSfrom receiving medical care .
And it doesn't stop with birth control and hormone treatment.
Half this Nation loves to cry and moan about feeding needy kids and old people.  Just because they saw some people buy candy or a lobster.  Seriously what kind of farking idiot thinks needy kids and old people should lose out because of other people's usage?

Also, our police still want to kill people with little or no over sight.
And lastly if we can help half way around the world.  Why can't we have some military start killing mass shooters?
Jfc. Fu*k anyone and everyone that can't handle their feet to the fire, when they are being self righteous  Hypocrites .


TLDR
Dear Ameica you're not George Bailey. Humanity didn't need 50 states and all those territories.  You NEEDED them. Because you couldn't see the world any  another way.
Same as V.P.,


same as the English and the Spanish.  Same as Hitler.  Same as  Napoleon. Same as Israel.


Let's ask Afghanistan if we're helpful?

Hell, let's ask some who isn't Bacardi money if they support continued Cuban embargo.

And let's ask South America how they feel about the Drug war.


Ameica you're the asshole at the party.
And you think it's your HOUSE because you killed the actual owner.  And you want to go across the street to tell some other asshole, Hay, don't be me bro.  Don't be a pos like me. Burp.
Oh man, I better get back to building a wall and not giving Interpreters citizenship.  Oh and here is a big pile of paperwork for anyone wanting to leave Ukraine.  Enjoy dealing with ICE. Hope you have someone to sponsor you. Otherwise SOL. Little buddies.

I present to you, that a policy of being against Israel, is not equivalent to:

RTOGUY: enjoy blindly firing rockets


The rest of what you said is fine. It's a complex issue with lots of unjustifiable stuff from both sides.

However, fark you for implying that enjoying random terrorism is the same as having policy against Israel.

I'll quote for you again what you are defending, with the context included:

RTOGUY: [Palestinian genocide is] excusable when you consider that the people of Palestine don't believe Israel should exist and enjoy blindly firing rockets into the country.

I wonder how you would feel if you got kicked off of your land forced into a slum and then oppressed by a much more powerful force.   I'm sure if they had a real military they would stop terrorism and just have a real war.   You only resort to terrorism when your are incredibly weak compared to your opponent.

I actually agree.  Genocide is not part of Israel's plans.

It is a big part of Putin's plans though (he wants to eliminate the concept of being Ukrainian).
