I thought tolerance was a requirement to believe in Allah? Must be wrong.

When it comes to Religion, tolerance goes out the window. Most major conflicts in human history have been down to religious intolerance. Mankind never learns.

Chris, perhaps most conflicts (depends on definitions there), but the deadliest ones, not so much (WW I, WW II, Vietnam War, Korean War come to mind). I guess I'd submit that most conflicts are down to power -- and that in some cases, this has meant using religious intolerance as the excuse.

Might want to research that a bit more.

Funny I though a couple of those you mentioned were to prevent the spread of the godless heathens. Another seems to have been for racial/religious purity.

The full text of the second amendment to the US constitution reads:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed

People who cite the second amendment are very good at forgetting the first part;
'well regulated',
in order to get to the 'it's our right to have guns' bit.
If you're going to have guns, they need to be regulated!

It's also often said "Guns don't kill people, people kill people".
But i think the gun helps!
Without it you're just running up and shouting "Bang!"
That's not going to kill too many people.
Unless you have a really dodgy ticker!

America loves to say "have a nice day" and then shoot people in the head.
In Britain we're just better people, we know it's not possible to have a completely nice day, and we don't shoot you in the head.

read the burglary story this morning.

one never knows maybe the son was a burglar.

Though I think the father is likely to be brought up on charges.

I don't care when The Massacre of Four Americans in Libya was called Terrorism or a Terror Act.

I want to know why The OBlabby Admin., The Billery State Dept., allowed these four men to NOT HAVE ADEQUATE SECURITY in A Country with Guns and RPGs in the hands of Everyone who would do harm.

And don't blame any cuts in spending for Diplomatic Missions. The cuts voted on, The Libbers refer to, had a Bipartisan Vote with MORE DEMOCRATS voting for than Republicans.

It didn't stop The OBlabby Admin/Billery State Dept. from putting Electric vehicle charging stations and buying Electric cars for certain Embassies. Go Green, but Die Red.

Or from other Embassies with barely any threats looming all around, having Adequate Security.

Yep, your Libber Leaders Frakked Up Big Time on this one.

If I were related to One of the Dead, there would be HELL TO PAY.

Darn, looked at my watch and I can barely make My Flight To Vegas.

Mass Shooting in Brookfield

The story says "second mass shooting in Wisconsin" the reality is that Both shootings took place in Milwaukee suburbs and probably less than 15 miles from each other.

These are trying times and people with bad tempers certainly do not need any type of firearms at their disposal to take out what is bothering them.

Yet another attempted mass killing, this time luckily no one has died yet. 29 Injured, 17 in hospital. When are we going to ban these weapons?

Good point about Bhopal -- but that was for profit -- that's OK, right?

Of course, it was state sponsored profit, well 49% anyway, just like Chernobyl.
