    It has to do with the Taliban, which is the subject of this atrocity.

    It doesn't take "off the wall", it just takes a sense of history and a bit of memory. You may want to explore free thinking skills to widen the horizon of subject matter being discussed.

    Pile in the rest of humanity's ills and problems if you go down that road - which btw, will lead to no where.

    It's very relevant - of a bad decision by the US as it applies to the world, and a very good decision as it applies to the Taliban who are not only capable but have no problem with carrying out such an atrocity such as this. Were you truly despondent of about dying children you'd agree with me. It's real simple actually.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Actually, as I understand it, the attack on this school was the direct result of the Pakistani military over the past year conducting operation in the border regions between Pakistan and Afghanistan to flush out the Taliban who've been holed up there and plotting attacks in both Afghanistan and Pakistan, particularly against the Pakistani government. Only to the extent that the US helps fun the Pakistani military is the US in any way involved.

    OK.
    Thanks.


    I have noticed, and I notice that right now you don't want to stick on topic. (Why would you, it's clearly you're devoid of any sense of humanity.)
    You're proving yourself to be an ideal Leftist.
    I prove you wrong about an accusation, and then YOU claim I am not on topic.
    Phew...



    The Crusades, the French Wars of Religion, and if I wanted to go Goodwin one could argue the Nazi movement was Christian. (After all, Hitler did say it himself.)
    In Germany meanwhile, the Hitler regime had sought to reduce the influence of Christianity on society.[57] While the regime did not publicly declare itself for state atheism (despite the urging of leading Nazis like Martin Bormann[58]), it did encourage party functionaries to abandon their religion,[57] and persecuted religious groups - including Jews, Christians and Jehovah's Witnesses.[55] Hitler ultimately intended to eradicate Christianity from Germany.[59]
    Criticism of atheism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hitler was responsible for tens upon tens of millions dying.
    Then there's the Commi's. Tens upon tens of millions.
    The rest doesn't come close. Crusades and French... 7 million. Was a while ago too.

    What about swingers, and couples in open relationships? Who is to judge if Mr. and Mrs. Jackson wanted to add a third wheel to their love life? That's their decision to make, not any church or religion.
    I said leads to a more harmonious society. And it would. It's not about making judgements here... it's about a set of rules that would more create harmony to society in general.

    You're posting nothing but spin.
    Theere is no spin on my part, but you're going to break some sort of rpm record soon.
    FACT: THE BORDERS ARE OPEN... TO CRIMINALS AND TERRORISTAS OF ALL KINDS. Or have you missed the news lately?

    No one changes my opinions on any matter but my own. But I doubt someone so entrenched in being a Right-Winger wouldn't understand that.
    This is laughable... the point was... Demokrats, if they don't want to own the nasty end result of open borders, should move fast to have them controlled professionally and expertly.

    I'm not making any defense here. You're posting and babbling on about something that is completely and utterly off base. Get out of here and start up your own thread if you feel so strongly about this issue, dingus.
    You made an emotional plea to the open border status.

    No, you found this thread to be a good place to set up your soapbox and shout out your party lines. Don't you dare to try and act like it is anything but that.
    Those murderers have took 3,000 lives here. The murder children. You think they don't want to continue what they started on 911?

    That the borders are open, that Demokrats are for it... well... that makes them culpable.

    When reading stories like these, I don't really care why it was done, or what their stated reason was.

    If they didn't use one thing to justify it, they would use something else. The end result is a lot of dead people.

    I don't disagree. I just thought it was important to knock down the usual "America bad" hand wringing that pops up whenever anything awful happens in the world.

    Many liberals have no problem admonishing the previous administration for their actions with respect to the capture and controlled advanced interrogation of terrorist and combatants. However, when their guy is in power, anything goes!

    You lie. We have repeatedly called out Obama for his use of drones.

    By contrast, your side militantly defended Bush's violence against civilians.

    Re: 84 children killed as Taliban storm school

    Taliban kills 136 kids and we get a 17+ page thread filled with people bickering about what the proper level of outrage should be, who that outrage should be directed at, and what tangential limitations should be placed on the outrage?

    Whatever.

    The Taliban is an evil organization of like minded, evil men. I don't want to try to understand them, I don't empathize with them, and I don't care what perceived injustice they are fighting against. They have no place in a civilized society. It's ultimatum time. Disband, change your ways, or die. I care not which path they choose.
