    Schmidt,

    I would agree with you if I felt we should win the hearts and minds of these people. But I'm trying to do that. I don't give shit about about their hearts and minds. Dutch seems to think that everone has a right to life. Incorrect, we don't have a right to anything, and as a self prolamed atheist he should know better.
    The right to life sound a little "entitled".When someone says that..they mean "people only.
    Now, some of these civiian casualties you're concerned with in the event our military were to carpet bomb certain regions and villiages.....would that be grandpa, who for centuries allows his 12 yr old daughter's clittoris being removed with a sharpened rock, (mom seems to be okay with that) as not to offend allah? What about uncle? who sends off his teen "virgin" daughter for marriage at 13 only, maybe to be STONED to death because hubby gets mad that day, or the gang raping of a young woman in order to punish a family for disrespect. SORRY, Im not interested in winning your hearts and mind. And the way I see it,they're dead anyways. Schmidt, That's irrational thinking. Nothing I've said in these posts comes close to that barbarism.
    These are the innocent civilians you speak of....to even practice those rituals shows me exactly where your mind is....too late for them.
    Yes, 100 correct, we have become insensitive to the plight of the world....And yes,...capitalism is the cause. The fact is the world has a pecking order, and I (by chance) live in the lands of the Bully....and I will never apologize for that.......these savages have the opportunity to do as most of the world does.....BOW DOWN TO THE KING (US) and receive your global aid (tax dollar bribes). This is why we give "aid" to countries. We buy their obedience.
    I've always been a big fan of foreign aid (welfare for brown people in other countries) So cash the check and control that 1 percent of your citizenry... or we will.

    Sorry L.A. you could have been born in Yemen; would you still think the same? I doubt it. So in your thinking a pampered rich little kid has the right to live to be a hundred, but a poor kid in the desert has not that right. kind of strange don't you think?

    it's really nice and soothing to think that perhaps one day the lion will lie down with the lamb without eating him, but since man is a predatory animal and too many men like to dominate others, that day is not forth coming in any future that I envision.

    J.C. absolutely correct; sorry but "humanity" may eradicate itself some day.

    Mr Dutch,
    That was my point. I wasn't born in Yemen. My world view stems from my own personal experiences and observations. Also, I'm far from being a pampered little rich kid, I don't know where you were headed with that comment. Again, we have no right to life. I don't know why you guys keep saying that. We don't have a right to shit..
    I look at the world as it is, and not as it SHOULD' be. The meaning to life is...there is no meaning...it just is. In saying that you want me to empathasize with people who are insane. Don't get me wrong. All religions included. I don't feel sorry for anyone who lives in imagination land...... People have their beliefs and make choices based on those beliefs....you make your bed....then sleep it. I'm not interested how they feel...The day that any whacked-out religious zealot wants to put away his imagination and come to the table...that's when you help that person/people. But until then....OH well

    You guys have more disdain for gang members and cops here in this country then you do for some idiot who believes that his god is going to show up riding a stallion out of the clouds.....and that we (anybody) who doesn't serve him has to die. Sorry Dutch...say what you will but you're never gonna sell that to me.
    That is insanity.

    L.A. Citizen -- I'll explain my point again. Yes this is a bad world and people kill each other all the time for many reasons. What it appears to me is that you are serving as judge and jury and assigning guilt by association. That is, you condemn the entire 1.6 billion population of Muslims based on the heinous acts of a few. Does Islam need to get their act together and work to change the perceptions?...yes. And in fact they are doing just that...condemning the massacre at the Charlie Hebdo magazine. Maybe it's not enough, but on the other hand we have politicians and news media here in the states that are doing what you are doing...casting blame to an entire religion.

    I applaud the Obama administration for not using the term "radicalized Muslims" because the people that commit these acts are not representatives or spokespersons for Islam. And yes innocent people have a right to life. We can argue whether the terrorists should be put to death, but innocent civilians should not have to pay the ultimate price just because they are stereotyped with the terrorists.

    Simply condemning the acts aren't good enough.....you gotta get your hands dirty. This ideology is coming from their own countries, So, take your garbage out. It's that simple
    They say that Isis controls 1/3 of Iraq......well then, carpet bomb 1/3 of Iraq. They even draw lines on CNN showing us where Isis has conrol in Syria...well then..Carpet bomb in betwen those lines. Much of this shit also comes out of Yemen....again....carpet bomb Yemen.
    I'm not acting as judge and jury,,,they've already convicted themselves. And yes, 1.6 billion people BELIEVE in this......So, by carpet bombing these 3 geographical locations will serve as a great example of how tired their neighbors are of this nonsens.

    You keep saying,,, let them work it out for themselves....That's not "working it out".....it's just talk.. Working it out requires action, not words. So, if they refuse to "ACT" upon their citizenry.....I only suggest that we have B52 bombers that will act'

    I remember them announcing that IRAQ Soldiers simply dropped their guns (our guns) and ran away from Isis.....Sorry, not an excuse. That's not "working it out.

    I know you are not a pampered rich little kid; I just wanted to show how in this world no one has a choice of where a person is born; this is a crual but a real happening. My point is it totally depends on where you were born, that makes you who you are. As a "baby" you have no choice in what environment you end up.
