I work at an office environment. It's quite open to the public at times. Sometimes we get flyers promoting various woo from chiropractic crap to 'spiritual - deepak-chopra-type' nonsense. Usually I…Continue

Logicallunatic replied to Unseen's discussion 'Has ISIS finally done something that that might start WW3?'
"I don't understand why there isn't now a coordinated effort by western countries to mash ISIS out of existence on pure humanitarian grounds. This is different to Iraq 2003. "

Logicallunatic replied to Unseen's discussion 'Has ISIS finally done something that that might start WW3?'
"No. It's just the same old story. The Taliban, Al Queda and now ISIS (granted, are the most extreme), but Islamists have beheaded western journalists before and will do it again. ISIS will be forgotten in two or three years. They will be…"

Logicallunatic replied to Stephen Gunn's discussion '“We Love Death..."'
"Yes but we don't need to "look for approval for fighting style" as you smugly suggested. It just happened to be something I read about the British that stuck in my mind. it could have been the Chinese or the Russians. The main point…"

"It was a comment about perceived courage in battle and how ridiculous it is. Nothing to do with the British. Get over yourself! "

Logicallunatic replied to Stephen Gunn's discussion '“We Love Death..."'
"There is a difference between using drones for precise strikes (which are fair game in my view) and firing weapons from heavy populated civilian areas.   At the battle of Omdurman, the British were impressed by the courage of the Muslim…"

Logicallunatic replied to Stephen Gunn's discussion '“We Love Death..."'
"That's a very good point Mike, well said. I would resist but wouldn't use human shields or fire from heavily populated civilian areas. If they want a fight, then man-up and grow a pair - soldier on soldier style."

"I forgot to mention Hamas indirectly cause Palestinian casualties by firing from civilian neighborhoods and store rockets in civilian buildings. This is serious form of culpability."

Logicallunatic replied to Stephen Gunn's discussion '“We Love Death..."'
"A lot of people read a few articles on this and seem to become experts on the geopolitics of the Middle East and Gaza conflict. When in reality they know nothing. They talk in buzzwords and catchphrases like "firing rockets" and…"

Logicallunatic replied to Unseen's discussion 'Is the US being drawn back into Iraq by ISIS/ISIL?'
"There is only one solution. Continue to bomb ISIS until they cannot organize in to a coherent unit, and if this takes forever, then so be it. "

Logicallunatic commented on Monica McGee (Monicks)'s blog post 'Is Free Thinking A Mental Illness?'
"Half of psychology is dubious to begin with. It's unscientific by nature. Seems as if they invent new disorders to justify more government money for research etc."

Logicallunatic replied to Unseen's discussion 'A little story of how helping people hurts them. Especially if you are a white girl.'
"One anecdotal piece in Huffpost doesn't negate all the good that has come from volunteering. A bit of perspective here. But yea I get the point about those unskilled-dreamy- idealists who may do more harm than good."

"YET... Yet when someone says Messi is shit(someone almost always does :P) I feel deeply offended.. Really? Messi is probably the best player ever and a multi-millionaire. Not much to be offended by there. "

Logicallunatic replied to Unseen's discussion 'There are peaceful Muslims. So what?'
"Let's say there are around a billion Muslims. Even if 99% are peaceful and moderate, that still leaves 10 million of the sharia-type lunatics and militants. "

Logicallunatic replied to Arcus's discussion 'The loss in the war against terror'
"Historically, a number of terrorist groups have been defeated. Why is it that this does not apply to Islamic terrorists? Interesting point. The problem with Islam is that it unites militants worldwide to take up the cause. There are British born…"
