    No one is "wrong" for exercising their right free speech, nor is it wrong to disagree by using your right to free speech in response. What is wrong is trying to murder other people for exercising their First Amendment rights.

    You genuinely don't understand this?

Garland (United States) (AFP) - The Islamic State group on Tuesday claimed responsibility for its first attack on US soil in which two gunmen were killed after opening fire at an event in Texas showcasing cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammed. Two of the soldiers of the caliphate executed an attack on an art exhibit in Garland, Texas, and this exhibit was portraying negative pictures of the Prophet Mohammed," the jihadist group said. "We tell America that what is coming will be even bigger and more bitter, and that you will see the soldiers of the Islamic State do terrible things," the group announced.....snip~IS claims Texas shooting, first attack on US soilNaturally, BO and his Team with the Media are having a different take with their pushback.
    Americans should be very grateful for their Second Amendment rights.

    Heya Mickey. Well I am not fond of to many coincydincys. That's for certain.

    But then the US Military and its personnel. Do have constraints to deal with, don't they?

    Texans know what has to be done when dealing with terrorists.

    And the majority of Muslims would say that ISIS and AQ are not true Muslims. And both they and you would be commiting the No True Scotsman fallacy.

    The fact remains, they do it in the name of their religions, whether you agree with their interpretation or not.

    But don't worry, I won't judge you or other Christians by their actions. That would be ridiculous, wouldn't it?

    I have slammed Obama and his predecessors for ignoring terrorism and attrocities in the less "strategic" parts of Africa, both Christian and Muslim in origin, many times. But our government, and I would say the majority of our population, just don't care about Africa.

    It doesn't look like the Eastern Lighting group has killed more than a dozen people; some of those killed are their own members.

    I recall something about Bush and later Obama sending US troops to help chase Kony through the bush. It's hard to fight them (the LRA) because they operate in very remote areas that are difficult to travel through.

    Bush sent a hundred million to help fight AIDS in Africa, and this aid has continued.

    Then Obama sent troops to aid in the fight against Ebola.

    Total US foreign aid to African countries is in the billions of dollars every year.

    It seems to me that concern for Africa among Americans and in the American government is substancial and bipartisan.

The texts and tweets of the two in Garland clearly say they were going to their deaths, the fact they failed to kill any of those who insult the Prophet did not matter to them, for their deaths were statements of their faith.
    If the pap you are trying to peddle is knowledge, I am happy for everyone here to consider me ignorant. By your reasoning, the U.S. was only playing into the hands of the Japanese by killing so many of them during World War II, because their culture glorified death.

    What you have expressed here, which is all too common, is an urge to accommodate Islamic jihadists. You would rather not admit that, so you try to disguise it as moral or intellectual superiority. It rings about as hollow as Rodney King's whiny question, "Can we all get along?"

    Yes it would, simply because I don't go out randomly and rape and kill under the authority of Jesus Christ. The majority of Christians don't. And with all the defections toward radical Islam, by Muslims and others, (this guy in Az. was raised Christian and turned to radical Islam)..............it's very hard to tell the players w/o a program.

    But they are true Muslims....they are typical of many Muslims worldwide. The stronger ones commit savagery, the weaker ones are preyed upon by the stronger ones.

    I don't care about Africa...I admit it. When we have people in this country living in poverty...why not address that first? Bill Clinton was bragging yesterday, about all the good his foundation does in Africa.....why not take care of your fellow Americans...First? Same for Angelina Jolie and many others.

    And sooooo many liberals mistake hate for just plain common sense or disgust! And then....turn around and hate themselves.

    And I always thought this was a big waste of money as much of it is siphoned off by criminals and corrupt officials.
