What is Turkey's game?

Looking out for their best interest.

As all countries do.

Not 'their' best interest, they are looking out for Erdogan's best interest. And his best interest is to put the Kurds up as bigger enemies of Turkey than IS, so when the government formation fails, new elections will go in Erdogan's favor. He hopes to once again gain an absolute majority in parliament so he can pass his constitutional reforms that would turn Turkey into a presidential system and essentially grant him total control over the Turkish government.

This isn't about IS, or the Kurds, this is just an ordinary attempt of grabbing absolute power.

Understand.

What countries and cultures believe to be in 'their' best self-interest:

May, or may not, be correct.

What you or I, believe to be in 'their' best self-interest. May not be correct.

After you have made enough errors in your personal life, and 'Solutions' to World Problems:

Perhaps you will understand.

Yeah, let me translate what you just said. Essentially you're saying that discussions with a keyboard are more prolific than an actual face-to-face conversation (and you are finishing off that statement with a silly beer joke).

I beg to differ.

Have repeatedly said face-to-face discussions are vastly superior.

Still don't understand Palmer's 'need' to kill these animals for 'fun'.

Rather more likely is that the irony detector was spot on, and continues to be and that I was attempting to draw you out into expressing what you really believe regarding the desire to work versus laziness.

However it is irrelevant to the question if an individuals total compensation is more if they work less, as willingness to work would not be a factor in the decision: To Work or Not?

Gary...

Aren't people different?

Why wouldn't some be just lazy, and take advantage?

Note: We MUST take care of those, who cannot permanently, or temporary, earn a living.

Not bad. Above your usual silliness.

Sarge...

There is perhaps hope for you.

Helan Abdulla is on the IS deathlist.

So is everyone else, who does not agree with them.

IS is a threat to everyone. This is why we must do - what we have to do.

Yet another death caused by the occupation forces of the failed war on drugs.

Choice of words: Are relevant to this discussion.

Note: Never agreed with the stupid, ridiculous, bound to fail, 'War on Drugs'.

I will also sign the petition.

Zimbabwe has arrested two persons in connection.

But has not yet requested extradition.

Hopefully they will.

On top of that, now we also have the phenomena of globalization. Now if countries lose power (they no longer collapse once they are past a certain level) they simply stop being leaders, but other countries simply pick up where they have left.

Interesting. Haven't thought about that.

Collapses, were at worst, regional.

A Global Collapse of Civilization?

Possibly.

Then what?

Maybe it's time to consider a course on
"how to deal with cops who are having a bad day"
as part of the requirements for getting a drivers license.
And maybe cops should be required to wear a display
showing the amount of time since their last donut was consumed.
Apparently training cops how to deal with people having
a bad day doesn't seem to be working too well.

In every profession, there are...

Just follow any orders. Period.

Unless you're an idiot.

What if the Jihadists win?

When have they ever won?

Their fight is with history, and its a fight they can't win. You can't stop human progress, you can only slow it down temporarily.

Your Post discloses our Fundamental Difference.

Your, and my Western Civilization, will collapse. And Other's will win - eventually.

Everything is Temporary. Any 'Advance' is only a temporary illusion. As History instructs us.

You should be grateful to God, or The Universe, for living in this time. It too, will pass.

Her death is inexcusable. If she really told the intake officer she had thoughts of suicide, she should have been on suicide watch and being checked very frequently, and in a cell devoid of ways to commit suicide. Someone should be fired for that. Unfortunately, I don't think that error is criminal.

Her death, and the Police Officer's actions/attitudes ARE inexcusable.

Gary... You are correct regarding future Criminal Actions.

This is from my past experiences Arresting, Terminating Employment, or Suspending, Police Officers.

BTW: Despite the Legality of The Stop (No it wasn't DWB). And the Legality of ordering an individual from their car: The continued employment of this individual, as a Police Officer, is open to question.

BTW 2: Just follow Police Instructions. Any problems - Take it up later.

BTW 3: Yes... I have been ordered by police, at gun point from my vehicle, as a middle-aged white male. Of course, I immediately complied with ALL their orders.

Only a totally stupid, brain dead, possibly insane person, would not.

From your various posts on this subject, I've come to the conclusion that you write as you, and I'm sure the greater majority of us on this thread, wish that that is the way things are at this point is time. But, unfortunately, that is not the case; it may become absolute fact sometime in the far, far future, but honestly,I don't see it happening in my lifetime and just maybe in your granddaughter's lifetime.

Cliff...

Neither you, nor many others, understand what I am saying.

I do understand the inability of those who cannot understand thinking, outside of their small, and comforting box.

Where have I stated, or believed, there is no racism, systemic in this, and other White Western, Asian, Black African Countries? No where.

I do agree with the White Left, and possibly you, regarding the problem. But not their, or Black Leaders Multi-Generational Failed Solutions.

Nothing more. Nothing less.

Can you understand that I believe the Marxist, Anti White Racist, Pan African, W. E. B. Du Bois, understood that what was necessary for Black American success: Was/Is no different than other successful oppressed groups?

Not is specific ideas. But the Foundation of his ideas?

Understanding this Discussion would take volumes. And this Thread is not conducive to this: Perhaps you are not correctly interpreting what I am saying.

“Around the world there is a tradition of oppressing women and treating them differently and not giving them the same opportunities, and husbands beating their wives, and children not being sent to school. Those are traditions. Treating women and girls as second-class citizens. Those are bad traditions. They need to change.”...

What if the Jihadists win?


What if fundamental Christians win? What if orthodox Judaism wins? The answer seems the same to me.

I believe the answer is the same if any fundamental Abrahamist sect wins, because there is no difference between any of them.

No difference?

Laugh, laugh,laugh, laugh...

Awaiting Fundamentalist Christians Rapings, Crucifixions, Beheadings, etc.

Gary...

This Atheist prays people, who believes as you. Do not gain any power.

Are we having a Debate (prefer discussion) over Taxes/No Taxes. Or...

What and Who, are Taxed?

No, the topic is To Work or Not?

Does Taxing Power impact The Topic?

Oh my word, no wonder our education is so FUBARed.

Philosopher of Law says teachers should not work after 5pm

Law Philosopher's career

Which is why a Nontechnical Education (Engineering is an example of a Technical Education) , is not a Science, and their 'Ideas' should be taken with a 'Grain of Salt'.

Interesting conversation, with a White Disabled Vet in Rehab (Drugs), a couple of days ago.

He stated he was arrested for WWW ("Walking While White"), in a predominantly Black Housing Project, by a Black Police Officer in NYC, a couple of years ago.

BTW: As the American Civil Liberties Union a couple of decades ago discovered, while riding in back of of Police Cars, after allegations of DWB:

No one, I repeat NO ONE, knows the Race of the driver, prior to The Stop, in over 85% of the time.

Meaning, that in many (most?) cases, it is the Racism/Bigotry of the Accuser.

AND: Those projecting their Internal Racism/Bigotry upon others.

There is nothing we can do to Educate these 'types'. They will always be, what they are.
