    Re: The Fresh and Civil Politics Thread

    Isreals army got scared of some slingshots and decided to start killing people which also escalates violence by the way. I guess those people getting shot at should just let themselves be shot at. They killed kids also.

    The US government must be laughing as they once again stirred the pot and indirectly helped this event unfold. The current US government was warned this would happen. They just dont care about Muslims.

    How is Israel not terrorists when they are the ones attacking people with slingshots with military weapons? How is Israel not the terrorists when they pass laws that allow them to try and set up illegal settlements in designated land to Palestinians? How are they not terrorists for cutting clean water and supplies to the Palestinians?

    Also 58 % of Palestinians were fine with a two state solution in 2013. Now its just over 30 %. I guess doing the above helped many of them view the two state solution as a crock of shit if Israel continues to do the above which thry fo. They were setting up illegal settlements in 2017.

    Do some actually think that Palestinians should have the land the size of a concentration camp and be happy with it? They should learn to drink urine when clean water is cut off?

    Which was also planned by Hamas.

    No reason kids should be in a violent mob throwing malitov cocktails, rocks, and trying to breach the border of another country.

    Hamas did it because they knew Israel would be forced to respond to protect themselves.

    Don't be tricked and influenced by a terrorist organization.

    There was a small percentage being violent until they were shot at. Then hell broke loose.

    Dont be fooled by your biased news sources or tricked by your own terrorist organization.

    Nope. It was planned because of the opening of the U.S. embassy.

    Try again. Hamas controlling Palestinians and fooling you.

    Tricked by a terrorist organization.

    Opening the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem called for a bigger show.

    They have been 'protesting' on the border for months.

    If you seriously believe it was 'only a small group' who were being violent, Hamas is a better manipulator than I thought.

    Hamas was responsible for what happened. They were responsible for the type of crowd that was there. They were responsible for children being there. They were responsible for the violence. And they are 100% responsible for those men, women, and children dying.

    You simply cannot throw malitov cocktails, rocks, fly burning kites trying to set a bordering countries fields on fire, and try to breach their border without evoking a response from said country.

    They were protecting their border, their country, and their people.

    Hamas played you and you took the bait hook, line, and sinker.

    Do you think this could have been resolved non-lethally, Dak? Or was there "no choice but to use lethal force"?


    Also, since my meme game is always on point, I'd like to point out it wasn't Hamas...

    When people are being pelted with rocks and malitov cocktails by enemy combatants whose intention is to breach your border?

    Enemy combatants who may have suicide bombs strapped to them hell bent on taking as many lives as possible?

    No, I'd say lethally is the only way to stop that situation.

    If the presence of Israeli troops with guns didn't stop them I can't think of anything short of opening fire that would.

    Eh, Relative to their era, I'd say the Roman Empire was the strongest force the known world has ever seen, with the caveat of the era being circa 137 AD. Nobody could beat those armies. Special mention goes to the Ottomans of the 1500's. Had everything gone as planned, Europe would likely Muslim.

    Personally though, Belisarius's Byzantine armies likely would have recreated Rome had his subordinates just listened to him. That's my choice.

    the point is he said the strongest military the world has ever seen, i think it'd only take a IFV platoon to take on the entire roman army. of course i know the Romans were the strongest at their time, i'm just getting caught up on technicalities haha~

    Have we already done this and I missed it among all the hullabaloo? THIS LINK

    It's a questionnaire that can tell you whether you are Liberal or Conservative based on a number of questions regarding "DISGUST."

    I think it's pretty neat. I was 27% Conservative, 73% Liberal, therefore my brain is a Democrat.

    I don't believe you can accurately determine someone's political views by measuring if maggots on meat disgusts you, but here we are...

    Your brain is a Democrat
    Conservative (44%) Liberal (56%)



    Then again, I'm not very socially conservative. Shrugs.
