Re: We're not at war with Islam?

Fair enough, I guess. But just for the record I think it would be more accurate to say that " some Americans are the rudest people on the planet". "Yanks" is sort of a rude way to refer to Americans and not all Americans are ruder than everyone else on the planet. I think you are setting yourself u...

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

As a "yank" I personally don't expect anyone to be "impressed" by me being open about being from the US. (In fact I've become pretty accustomed to getting flak for it on forums comprised of people from many nationalities like this one.) Honestly, I'm open about it because it just doesn't occur to m...

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

Isn't that funny, since MY country is consistently at the top of the list in practically every positive category you can think of (including 'freedom') with even the city I live in just being named the best in the world. Isn't it ironic that I probably have more right than anyone to say that I live...

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

'Jealous' of what? I don't know why retarded people have to come on this site. Why don't you write on the Alex Jones page or something? You act like you have a hard-on for the US since you talk about my great country so much. Telling me what to do will be ignored since I have freedom in this countr...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AN0udPRnd2M Gee. I wonder why you are hated. Must be all those non-existent 'stereotypes'.

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

OMG. Are you really that thick? How the fuck do drones know who they are bombing? And half the time they are operated by giggling yank psychopaths who think they are playing video games. Btw, how does a drone tell a 'terrorist' from a regular human being? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rXPrfnU3G0...

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

Also it's humans who decide who are terrorists and who aren't, not the technology at this stage.

(BTW when you declare the US to be a "sick fuck", I suppose you had sex with the country).

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

If they bumped off every potential terrorist before they had solid reason to think an act of terror was imminent I think they would end up with an embarrassingly large number of bodies to explain away. The police may have had this man on their radar but he was just one of, probably, thousands. You ...

You're overlooking technology. Drones can do the job.

I don't think I'm overlooking anything, Phil.
I think not Harbal. Here's a four-year old article (and the technology has advanced since then):

Re: We're not at war with Islam?

If Abede had been taken out, 22 innocent people would still be alive.

Re: What does New England have to do with the UK?

I must say it's not the best or most imaginative State name. My favourite would have to be Mississippi. Why? PhilX You have to ask? It has five double up letters (i and s twice) which could be a record, and it rolls off the tongue like exquisite poetry. Even spelling it out loud is fun. :D I know. ...

What does New England have to do with the UK?

That part of the US needs a better name.
