    It's not related to secularism :S

    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Made to answer how?
    Don't work out, work in.

    No, I don't have any links. But you do not see uniformed members in airports traveling like you did when I was in military in early 70's. Maybe some current members of the military here can comment as to whether they are advised or ordered not to wear uniform.

    This sort of thing has gone on a very long time. In the 60s sailors could not take shore leave in Sicily because of the rampant anti America sentiment. One other comment though is I thought Obama was going to make the world love us? So much for that.

    Re: US Sailors Victims of Videotaped Attack in Istanbul

    The ME is in flames , millions upon millions have suffered and continue to suffer in dreadful ways. Hundreds of thousands are dead. Much/most of this can be put down to Western imperialism/meddling and yet.............


    A few US sailors get harassed in Turkey and so many posters here infer/demand some sort of retaliatory action.

    Some foolishly believe that a bit of public US citizen ire over the incident might have more clout than the US arms industry.

    This is just some of the madness that we live in , laid bare. Imagine how people feel that are on the receiving end of what we dish out via our military might , all wrapped up in the sugar coated BS of our own magnificence .

    It's enough to make you wanna chuck your guts up
    There never has been a peace process, but rather an annexation process that used the “peace process” as a facade

    In the 14th year of the US Global War On Terror, 13 years of Death From Above by US Drones, US citizens and especially soldiers and sailors, are not terribly popular in the muslim world.

    And the real shock is that so many here in the West don't wish to understand why the two could be connected.

    For me it's not a shock. Americans have been thoroughly and professionally propagandized for decades. Pseudo-patriotism is drilled into their brains. It doesn't take long and they live a separate reality.
