I don't think I'm following you. Suspicious? It doesn't surprise me that radical Islamist ideology survives wars and bombings. You can't kill an idea. But I'm interested in why you would think some might be suspicious.
Terrorism is a military tactic that plays on peoples' emotions. The tactic targets innocence. Our bombs and drones kill innocent people too, but when that happens it's a mistake. Our goal is to kill combatants, and you won't find up celebrating killing innocent people over here.
I agree. Americans don't just go out and kill innocent people, mistakes happen and when it does, we as a people are sick of it. But war is war and sometimes innocent people do get killed, but not deliberately by Americans.
Well that's why I didn't say Americans
I said the government because the government is the body that controls that kind of thing
May I suggest you have no idea what you’re talking about
He said no one in America celebrates
So I said neo Nazis do
Where did I compare troops to neo Nazis?
I compared those in the Middle East who celebrate death with those who celebrate death in America
So excuse yourself
And don’t give me that “get out of my country” spiel
It’s a little played out
I'm anti war and anti murder
I never said Americans BECAUSE I AM AMERICAN
It's not my problem you're sick of it
don't read it. that's not my problem
The U.S government
Because I live here? So that's where I'll make the complaints
You make no sense at all
it's like if someone doesn't like trump you'll say they're anti-american for not liking the US president
Do you see me complaining about every aspect or is it ONE PARTICULAR aspect that I keep complaining about
I don't need your respect so I don't know why you keep saying that
Says more about you than me
You keep saying you have nothing else to say to me yet you keep doing so...
and now you're just being irrelevant and trying to make things personal
Well the Muslim didn't drop the apple either so your sarcasm doesn't really make sense
It was your clumsy self...
Unless you are Muslim
Which you probably are
oh...good one, then.
Yes, yes it does. Sounds very suspicious. If I didn't know better, I might think the aim was just to kill a sh!t ton of people.
Another interesting thing about that construct, it takes all the people willing to die for an ideal ("freedom," "law," "justice," etc.) and it lets them. It lets them die for that higher ideal. If I didn't know better, I might think that the same people aiming to kill a sh!t ton of people wanted the people willing to die for a higher ideal to die first. It's almost like they're categorized as the greatest immediate threat.
Wait a second...
It sucks because they trick these young soldiers fresh out of school
and they leave so many veterans homeless
It sucks because all that death steals so much misplaced good from the world. Good that wasn't here long enough to realize it was good.
But at such a young and impressionable age.
As an officer, i would imagine.
Your response prompted me to look up some info. You are far more correct than i. I hadnt realized that the average age of inlistment is what it is.
Recruits were much younger in my time.
deaths of civilians is no victory
Then why declare victory? If it’s no business
I agree and let them fight it out on their own without any assistance from the US Government. Then watch them whine and cry about it.
You call parents crying over their dead chilren's bodies "whining and crying" ?
No, those are your words.
ISIS somehow survives? Yes, but it is a very small "somehow" compared to what it used to be.
Who controls Mosul and Raqqa? What happened to the territory of the ISIS "Caliphate"?
And where is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi? Either dead or in hiding.
Just blame us Muslims
use us as a scapegoat
and turn a blind eye
I'm talking about when they bomb areas that don't contain terrorists
I like how you say “we”
Yeah bomb civilians and steal resources
Just because someone makes complaints about a government doesn't mean they should be kicked out
and I'm not even Middle Eastern
I said I'm am unhappy with the government. I'm pretty satisfied with my location and neighbors
Yeah I would complain about that country too because most if not all governments are greedy and corrupt including america, the middle east, and any other place I know of
I'll say whatever I please
That's none of your concern
If you don't like it you can go to an island where you don't have to see my comments
Simple as that
It does, unfortunately we're only small people who get fed whatever the big ones decide.
The targets are not civilian. Just be thankful that we're in this era and it isn't the 30's and 40's. Nobody gave half of a shit about civilians; They just blew shit up and to Hell with whomever got in the way.
Just be thankful? Naaah
Bombing civilians for the lands Resources (oil) is nothing to be thankful about
Well I'm not middle eastern and I don't originate from there so the education remark there...
but one of the first colleges in the world was opened by a woman in the middle east
yeah there are sexist and horrible areas in the middle east but you are so incorrect in stating that it's almost all of the middle east. You really don't know much of all that goes on there
I haven't really looked into Russia so I don't comment on it
As a Muslim who hears people always bringing me down, I feel more of a tie to speak about the middle east because people always mention Muslims along with that area
And I made complaints about the government. That makes you wanna vomit? Oh well. I live here so that's where I'll make the most complaints. One shouldn't be so blinded by nationalism that they don't make any complaints
and I make complaints of other governments too when it comes up
I've complained about the Indian government before...
but given that I don't live there it doesn't come up as often
Since amirite is mostly about US Politics more than other nation politics
Americans don't just go out and kill innocents, that's what ISIS does. They put their women and kids out in an area where they know the Americans will be coming for them so they can hide behind them like the cowards they are, and then when the innocents are killed they blame the Americans. Place the blame where it belongs, and that would be the cowardly ISIS and other terrorists.
I didn't say Americans
I said the U.S government
Same thing. The US Government is Americans.
No it's not the same thing
I'm American but I didn't kill anyone ever women, children, or men
Your post is talking about the Government, not ordinary American citizens.
Yeah that's what I said
"I didn't say Americans
I said the U.S government"
to which you said same thing
And that's what I meant, Americans (US Government military) does not go around killing civilians, and you, being an American, should know that. But the enemy does that, they hide behind civilians all the time to make the US military look like killers, which in fact we do everything possible NOT to hurt or kill the innocents.
Oh by the way, your president says ISIS is no more, that is if you believe Trump and his many lies.
Well I'm not a trump fan
I didn't vote for him
But I do think the government is corrupt and greedy harming the world
Don't blame the US Government, you seem to have forgotten all the Middle Eastern countries who have dictators leading them, they are the ones harming others, not Americans. You might be American, I don't know, but a true American defends their country, not bashes it. And evidently you've forgotten all the good things our country has done for other countries as well, of which I'm sure you've benefitted from. JMO, of course.
Well I'm not middle eastern and never lived there
I'm well aware of the corruption that exists in the rest of the world
But Amirite is mostly about US Politics so that's what I talk about here
I'm not gonna defend murder or war in any country
I didn't say you were, I was just pointing out that the United States is the greatest country on earth, and we are not killers of the innocents. I'm proud to be an American and I will always defend her, too bad you can't say the same.
Enjoy your day.
Not gonna defend war and murder
that's like being blinded by nationalism
You enjoy your day too
Then why don't you make a post about how corrupt the Middle Eastern people are, how many of their own people they have killed, instead of bashing your own country, unless this isn't your country. From your comments I'm tending to think you aren't American at all. All you ever do is bash us. Ummmm wonder why.
Uhh because there are plenty of posts already here that already talk about what’s going on in the Middle East
I’ve made comments about the Middle East. It’s not like you’ve read through thousands of comments that’s I’ve made on amirite over the past 5 years
And don’t question my citizenship. Frankly, That’s none of your business
That’s a trump move like when he questioned Obama’s citizenship
I question your patriotism, of which you have none of. I'm sure you have benefitted greatly from this great country, yes we have our problems, but we aren't killers and it's disgusting to hear a so called American bash my country.
You can always leave and go to a more friendlier country, how about going to Russia? Then you'll know what a great country the United States really is.
Many Americans have died to give you the freedom to say whatever you want, and instead you disgrace us by bashing us. Shame on you.
You understand that the Radical Islamists are the bad guys - right?
Isis must be genius people. They can outsmart all the other countries. I think every single seal team on earth should go in and take then out one by one - that will be the only way to get them.
