truthers are just more of the same ignorant humans who slaughtered other humans for differing in belief, and who were busy closing their eyes, ears and noses to the concentration camp just over the hill.
You cannot know for certain that if we scaled back and stopped using remote controlled drones to bomb wedding parties, if we started helping them rebuild their decimated urban areas, if we apologized and stepped back a long do you think "they" will still try to get vengeance? One generation? Two?? Do you think all of "them" will hate us forever if we stick our nose OUT of their business?

Both Bin Laden (post 9/11) and al-Baghdadi have made it clear that the endgame of their jihad is a global caliphate.
And only recently as a direct result of our past and present intervention in their countries. The problem for them is that they can't get enough of their fellow Muslims on board with their tyrannical goals because they terrorize their own country men who disagree with their plans for global hegemony even more than they terrorize the wicked witch of the west.

In that world, every infidel has a choice - either convert or die (some may be permitted to live in subjugation if they pay the jizyah tax). And the Islamic holy books make ready sense of this behavior. It is a missionary faith, a plausible reading of which presents a mandate for devout Muslims to Win, in this world, as preparation for an eternity of paradise to come in the next.

It should be fairly obvious that the people who are pushing for that world are in the minority even among those who share the same religious faith.

So yes, insofar as that the jihadists have told us exactly what they intend to do, so long as they're alive to do it, we can be quite confident of what they would try to do if we all sat on our hands for 40-50 years.

The jihadists are a tiny fraction of the world's population of Muslims. The jihadists do not even have a country to call their own. They are vastly outnumbered and conducting a campaign that brings more and more people against them every day. They are not unlike our own white nationalist parties here in America. The reason our white nationalist parties are not running around the country systematically torturing and murdering their "enemies" is because America, as a nation, is stable. We haven't had some foreign nation come in and drop bombs on our children every day for the past 50 years. There was no jihad against the west until the west waltzed into their towns and told them how it was going to be from now on. Your solution to the threat we currently face is to basically ramp up our violent activities against them because now they are trying to fight back. I am not suggesting that we sit on our hands and do nothing. I am suggesting we try to help the real victims of our foreign policy. They don't like ISIS anymore than you do and have much more reason to fear them than you or I.
Sexuality, Reproduction, & Abortion / Re: does promiscuity cause suffering?

You know I'm not judging, right.  Not my intention. 

I do however think there's a reason why people have negative opinions about promiscuity.   I think that reason is children. 

I don't think anybody on this forum would teach their children this lifestyle is the best possible lifestyle. 

Adults all of us whether parents are not are role models for children. 

Sometimes children are made in these encounters.  Sometimes those children are found in dumpsters or end up in foster care. 

It just seems to me children flourish more in a home with educated monogamous parents.

I think that's why there's so much judgement.  50 million abortions included. 

I think those rules change for a woman who is independent.   

Promiscuity just seems like your using people for your own selfish desires. 

In the rest of the animal kingdom mother bears are promiscuous to prevent other bears from eating their offspring.  There are animals that mate for life. 

Sex is not a toy.  It has an evolutionary function, reproduction and the brain reacts with chemicals to make you love that person so the child has a mother to love and nourish them and a father to provide food, shelter and protection.

more baseless claims by JB which still doesn't support her claims.  Starting with "think of the children!" never works very well.   

Honestly, what the heck about the bears?   :o

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (EKB) - Organizers of a local peace rally to stand in contrast to a planned white supremacist event announced Thursday afternoon that they have cancelled their plans for Saturday.

Organizers began planning the Rally for Equality and American Values at the University of Pikeville back in February, almost as soon as the Traditionalist Worker Party announced its intention to converge on Pikeville for a rally.

In a statement posted to the group's Facebook event page shortly before 4:30 today, organizer Ariana Velasquez said organizers unanimously decided to postpone the event, after consulting with law enforcement, public officials and university administration.

In the statement, she said "unforeseen credible threats" forced the decision to cancel in order to protect the safety of participants.

The University of Pikeville is encouraging individuals to avoid downtown Pikeville this weekend.

"The TWP has become expert in obeying the letter of the law while getting as close as possible to inciting violence. The ARA and ANTIFA will stand nose to nose with the TWP in an attempt to shout them down. Unfortunately, they may also be planning a more violent conflict. There are grave concerns among the law enforcement community that Pikeville was chosen by these groups precisely because it is a rural, safe town," a release from the University reads.

I meant to post something about this last week but kept getting distracted.
