    When the Islamofascist Supporter on the golf course abandons friends and allies, when he is seen as utterly feckless, when he cuts and runs in Iraq and Afghanistan, one should expect that Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and his Islamofascist friends will begin to move. So we have seen what happens when Americans will vote for the man who promises to take from the productive to give to his unproductive voter base.

    Elections have consequences. When Americans become as corrupt as we must have to vote in Obama the whole world burns. But the Obamaphones keep flowing.

    Well I hate to break it to you, but both Russia and China started "moving" as soon as Bush started his pre-emptive war in Iraq.

    The U.S.-led war in Iraq has introduced new complications into security cooperation between the United States and Central Asia and revealed inconsistencies in the U.S. approach to regional security. The increased U.S. security focus on the region has led other regional powers--especially Russia, China, and India--to compete for influence there more overtly, and a continued American military presence is likely to create tensions in Russian-American relations in particular. Central Asian leaders concerned about the implications of the U.S. interest in “regime change” for their own rule, now have an added incentive to overstate terrorist threats facing their countries, while justifying the persecution of any political opposition and peaceful religious activity.
    By highlighting antiterrorism in U.S. security cooperation with Central Asia, the United States addresses a symptom, rather than the causes of regional security; thus it is pursuing a counterproductive strategy, contributing to the radicalization of political opposition movements and discrediting both democratization and the U.S. commitment to it. Instead, the United States should do more to address the underlying human security problems in the region, which increase its vulnerability to terrorist movements. To this end, the U.S. Army should contribute to humanitarian demining efforts and expand training in drug interdiction there.

    Also, our "Christian" treatment of many Native Americans during the colonial expansion west was .... Ghastly.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Woman beheaded in broad daylight in a London garden[W:335:480]OK folks. There has been ongoing derailment for many pages. The topic is:

    Woman beheaded in broad daylight in a London garden

    Not Nazis, the rape of children, various religions and their culpability in that, the war in Iraq, Iran, Syria or any other place nor, most importantly, each other.

    Re-focus yourselves on the topic, drop the baiting, snarking and personal comments. For those who can't or won't, you'll be assisted out of the thread and/or receive some points.

    There is pending moderation on posts made before this warning.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    There is no need to be "fair" when referring to history. I'm sure you noticed that I attributed bloodshed to all sides, and that was the case. However, the western world seems to be running away with the progress, generally speaking, while much of the eastern world is damned determined to stay in the dark ages. If they would just keep their dark ages minds and practices contained there, rather than spreading it, I wouldn't care.

    I was pointing out that when it comes to evaluating the causes and longer term patterns of violence, relating to the event in the OP, we need to be humble.

    We do not yet know if this event is the tip of a new wave of ethnocentric violence, but given world events (ISIS), and what little we do know of the perpetrator, and in the context of the other "Asian" violence occurring in Briton, it would be wise to be on guard and watchful.

    It will be months before the whole story is known.

    But if there are seven more beheading attacks in that time...

    I really hope this event is just a single crazy person. Unfortunately, my sense of world event intuition says it is not.

    Which also explains much of the terrorism. When people are taught they are superior but live in relative squalor because of those very teachings, they lash out in rage against those who make them feel inferior by having achieved such progress.

    That tells me that their belief is one based in fear, and not based in actual devotion to their concept of God. It's the age-old human problem of wanting to have one's cake, and eat it too. It never works. Religion, if it is based in genuine belief, should bring joy as the side effect. If religion is based in fear, and is only a part of one's life as a matter of birth and tradition, it will never satisfy the human urge to find meaning.

    Instead of embracing yourself in denial why not do a litle bit of research on the subject? Or eve look at your own posts. You question self-hatred along with a link to American being in the dark yet again. If leftists had any sense of irony you would have excluded any link whatsoever and investigated the point being made.
