    Religion"s" getting a pass? Hardly.

    I see it as fear rather than respect.

    Christians and Jews don't generally go on a rampage when dissed.


    Interestingly, there is a poster in this very forum who has proclaimed over and over and over again that he is U.S. military, yet claims Islamist terrorism is "doing what needs to be done".

    THis begs the question, "if Hassan was voicing support for terrorism online while in the army, at what point is a website that provides a venue for such responsible for contacting somebody about it?"
    "you're better off on Stormfront discussing how evil brown men are taking innocent white flowers." Infinite Chaos

    well no. warning signs on 9/11 were ignored because the government didn't want to prosecute itself or interfere with it's own Operation Iraqi Liberation.

    The situations aren't really that similar. Same inaction yes, but for different reasons I think.

    i think the reason was the same - they wanted it to happen because it plays into their hand.

    what would the government do if it was forced to admit that all the enemies it is fighting are fictitious ?

    but it is also true that a person who is sane would not take an M16 and fly to middle east to exterminate women and children there just to be able to come back and become a homeless beggar. therefore they don't really have the luxury of picking people who are not psychos.

    Remind me what the rate of sexual harassment or sexual assault in the military is again
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    No it wasn't. What happened was that Rome was hiring entire barbarian armies to fight for them, instead of assimilating them into the legions. Learn some history, buddy, it wasn't about being "politically correct". And the Roman empire didn't fall until 1453, keep that in mind.

    Edit: Gysgt beat it to me and said it better than I did.

    Good Lord. I didn't say the Roman Empire fell because of politcal correctness. I said the Roman Empire fell because of a weak military. But thanks for the heads up, "buddy".

    Probably in the conspiracy forum.
