    Ah, yes. Corporations are inspiring Islamic terrorism. It had to come to that eventually.

I'm afraid that much of the world, not just the Islamic part, can sniff political expediency and cynical self-interest a mile off.
    You do know the difference in using Monsters as opposed to creating them.....Right?

    The film maker did not kill anyone.

    The cowards are those who run in mobs and murder innocent people. Those who defend this evil, or try to explain it away, are worse than cowards.

    Yup. Military-industrial corporations control US foreign policy, drone attacks on civilians included.

    No, I would walk away from them.

    That is one of the things that separates those such as myself from you Islamist supremacists.

    You hadn't heard that it was a corporation that came up with the idea of Jihad?

    Where have you been, man?
