    Re: ISIL Beheads American Photojournalist in Iraq

    It is perplexing. ISIS is just the latest iteration of Muslim extremist scumbags and for decades now, every time they have doen something like this (beheaded an individual and videotaped it to the choreographed dance moves of Allahu Akbar) the typical response is meh...no big deal...its not like they are representative of all Muslims, or its not like we have to fear anything over here...

    so...the question is...

    are you awake yet? Do you get it?

    These people have raped and butchered children for decades. They have degraded men in front of their wives, then raped the wives in front of the men and finally killed the men in villages and towns throughout the middle east. They have raped and beheaded 12 year old school girls. They butcher entire schools full of children. They are not bashful in their stated goals.

    There are civilized people. Then, in descending order, there are barbarians, savages, animals...and finally: Islamic extremists. Saw the video on youtube. Very sad. May he RIP.

    No. If you strip these barbarians of their humanity (as they do others), what does this make you?

    People should have "gotten it" after the lifestyles of the 19 hijackers were revealed. These "deeply" religious people spent their time cruising strip bars and indulging themselves in the very excesses of Western culture that they claim to abhor. They use women and children as human shields and they use their religion in the same way and for the same purpose. People in this thread have talked about "sending a message". We can do that very simply and without genocide and without reducing ourselves to their level of barbarism.

    The next time they fire on us form a Mosque? Flatten the ****ing thing.

    Morning NB. It has been confirmed. After seeing what these jerks did. I wouldn't care who it was. Even if some US Billionaire hired somebody to reach out.....and touch that one.

    Maybe it is time for Americans to use Social media to start screwing with the Terrorists heads.....also we should go after any of the News Sources that stick up for them and those that fund them. Like Qatar.

    You can't out "brutal" Muslim extremists. The Soviets were extremely brutal in their responses to this kind of thing in Afghanistan back in the 1980s and it go them nowhere.

    It seems like the theme again and again is we just need to get more brutal, bomb their mosques when they hide in them, carpet bomb them and so on…. The Soviets did all of this and much more back in the 80s in Afghanistan. It still didn't work. We could firebomb them, kill everyone in their village when one of them turns to extremism, bomb their mosques, hell even mutilate their corpses and bury them in pig guts, and in the end we will be in the same situation the Soviets were in at the end of the 80s in Afghanistan. All we can do over there is contain them, prop-up brutal dictators that are somewhat friendly to the west and contain them, that is all we can do. This fiasco is the direct result of going into Iraq in the first place. Maybe in another thousand years or so they will catch up to the rest of the world.

    Well, either being an American means something and we go on and obliterate their ass, or it don't.

    Perhaps.
    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.
