Yeah, we have no clue.
Food for thought:
I'll take life lessons from experience and not an outlet funded by the House of Thani.
Fuck sake dude.
Well, if you're a real Star Wars fan, where else than fighting for the Taliban can you experience the real thing?
"That's not a moon ... that's an american carrier!"
TFW rebels weren't suicide bombing Imperial civilians.
Edit* Actually now that I think about it, the Rebels did fuck over the 20,000 some contractors working on the death star.
Well, it's easier to kill someone if you see them as inhuman baby killing psychopaths which would not hesitate to murder you in your sleep. And I am just talked about what they think about the US americans here.
Dude, can you tone down the rhetoric with all the baby killing talk already?
WTF man. You got a hard-on for dead babies, great. There's got to be more subtle, less drama queeny and preachy ways to get your point across.
Glad I am not the only one here noticing the gigantic heaping of drama we are getting.
I will stop with it, when it's not a fact anymore.
During my recent trip to Pakistan as part of our upcoming documentary film, Drones Exposed, I was struck most by the stories told to me by children who had experienced a U.S. drone strike firsthand. The impact of America’s drone war in the likes of Pakistan and Yemen will linger on, especially for the loved ones of the 178 children killed in those countries by U.S. drone strikes.
What you guys call 'rhetoric' is the reality for some. Let that one sink in for a minute.
And before you hit that reply button like crazy, I have relatives which have been scared shitless from US bombings in Serbia, as they never knew if the next one would hit them. I mean even if such a scenario is very unlikely, it simply isn't a nice feeling to have military bombers flying over your city droping payloads, even if they hit for the most part military instalations, but mistakes happen and well people experience that kind of fear. For example I remember that one US bomber managed to hit the Chinese embassy in Belgrad. Fortunately I never had to experience anything like that and I hope I never will. But when you have family with such experience, it kinda puts all of that a bit in a different light. Becuse it becomes a reality. The fucked up policies of some US politicans are the life or death scenario for others. It simply sucks if you're colateral damage.
So, you're sticking with the high-handed, preachy moralizing. Got it. Have fun guys.
Yes, I know about all of that, and frankly its disturbing. However, most Americans live in a blissful (if you could call it that) ignorance about these sort of things. For a civil war to start, a political; ethical; linguistic; religious; or cultural disagreement would have to divide two or three parties. Half of America and the other half would have to be really heated about something, like the Trump presidency or slavery.
This is only coming about since everybody and their sibling who Identifies as a house plant is writing civil war fantasy fiction about how 400lb landwhale armed with a 5ft dragon dildo is going to push back against all nazis. sure there is the equivalent of pushing the Commiefornians into the sea but it isn't as prevalent.
But civil war? Yeah no bud.
I think I identify as a cactus, people keep referring to me as "prick".
That's awesome. Free prickly pear fruits.
Think about the rebel pilots who weren't Jedis and 'attuned to the force' who still went after the Death Star and were blasted to pieces by the Death Star defence turrets? Those homies had real courage, unlike Luke who just had that typical Hollywood McGuffin "the hero can't die" - magic and got all the glory and hump Leia as the credits rolled by.
I think he think's he's Ron Swanson.
Hey. It's America runing around and bombing everyone they don't agree with. Who's preachy and moralizing? I have the attitude that Trump did the wrong thing in Syria. Yes, it is horroible when someone is using chemical weapons to kill people. But two wrongs don't make one right.
Will Putin just listen? Will the PRC just listen? Did Hitler or Hirohito listen? Did the European powers listen when taking over parts of the world? Did the various Italian states listen, when they went to war with each other? How about the European kingdoms in the middle ages? Did the Romans listen? How about Alexander? The Persians? Egyptians? The sea people? Babylonians? Mesopotamians?
History is rife with WAR. History is rife with CONQUEST. History is rife with COMPETITION. If there is one fucking thing humanity can be relied on to do, is to compete. It is the way of the world, no matter how much the leftists hippies preach and idealize.
LISTENING, while useful, doesn't always WORK. The world is DIRTY. People are DIRTY. There will ALWAYs be a US vs THEM, mentality, at least, until science and technology gets us to Star Trek.
That's right. Even in basic economics, US uses protectionism while vehemently accusing EU, etc. of protectionism. This has been US economic policy strategy for a long long time. This influences us Euros directely and it's as much part of US politics as is the bombing stuff and in some cases even more damaging.
A country uses it's influence for it's own national interests? How shocking. Those dastardly Americans must hold a monopoly on doing this. Dude, a little more objectivity and a little less whiny prejudice please.
Somebody should reply to this with the definition of whataboutism again. it would be golden.
