    Eventually the Arab/Muslim world will enter the 21st century.

    It probably won't happen until the 25th or 26th century, but it'll happen sooner or later.

    Until then, they're free to kill each other all they want as far as I'm concerned.

    So long as they're keeping it within their own borders I couldn't care less.
    It's posts like these that make me wish DP had a "dislike" feature.

    Obama Fails to Blame Taliban for Mass School Murder in Pakistan
    9:32 AM, DEC 16, 2014

    President Obama's statement condemning the mass murder in a Pakistan school fails to blame the perpetrators, the Taliban. Here's Obama's full statement:

    The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms today’s horrific attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar, Pakistan. Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims, their families, and loved ones. By targeting students and teachers in this heinous attack, terrorists have once again shown their depravity. We stand with the people of Pakistan, and reiterate the commitment of the United States to support the Government of Pakistan in its efforts to combat terrorism and extremism and to promote peace and stability in the region.
    Wake Up America!

    Hard to argue. Obviously evolution is doing it's best to rid the gene pool of this deformations. From my perspective, we should allow them to hurry along the process on their own.

    However, when it comes to the energy these single celled hydras seem to be living around, we should make it clear we will make sure the World has access to it at fair market prices, and will vaporize any one of these things that try to keep the World from doing so.

    More unsubstantiated and wrong information. They don't have "ties" to religion. That is a lie. They are religious institutions. Paid for and supported by whatever religious group. My wife for instance has a masters from Olivet Nazarene University in business. So you are just making up things now.

    Your basic premise is nonsense and made up as well. A large part of human advancement came directly from religion including social, economic and education. They still do from religious research hospitals etc. So wrong again there.

    According to whom? Religion at it's core is about spirituality. If it was about only control, why don't secular humanist regimes use it? Oh they don't, they tend to be Godless and use just force of arms. Systems of faith pushed us out of the stone age and into our now modern age. Systems of faith teach taking care of other, enlightenment and transcendence depending on your religion.

    You are just painting with a huge brush with no real understanding of the history and the positive contributions from the past and present from religion.

    Don't try and shift the goal posts with your strawman. This is about someone making a blanket statement about ALL religions and you trying to defend the ignorance of said statement.

    This again has little to do with your absurd rhetoric.

    And still not word of sympathy for the children. Conservatives are cold and lack empathy. It's all about politics, f'ing disgisting.

    One irony is that America sends tens of $billions to Pakistan to prop up their military and this school that was attacked houses the children of the military and they couldn't even find a way to use some of those $billions to protect their own.

    No, the only thing disgusting is the faux outrage of libs concerning some murdered children, while at the same time advocating the ripping of live children from the womb and driving a forceps through their tiny skulls. That's ****ing disgusting.

    Yes just like the cold hearted liberals who tried to use Sandy Hook etc for political gains. "It's all about politics, f'ing disgusting."

    Save the self righteous outrage.
