If we could remove religion from the world, how many conflicts would cease and how many people would not be killed?

Perhaps we should be discussing:

If we could remove religion/ideology from the world, how many conflicts would cease and how many people would not be killed?

So don't you think that religion plays a big part in determining the actions and thoughts of people that make up their thoughts on nationalism and ideologies.

Religion is an EXCUSE for...

Atheistic Ideology's have murdered more people, than Theology's.

They're both the same. Just an excuse for Murderers.

And I'm speaking as an Atheist.

The ONLY side calling for Genocide, is not Israel.

I'm sorry your head is buried in the sand. Perhaps you will look up just for a second...

Moshe Feiglin is head of the Manhigut Yehudit [Jewish Leadership] faction in the Likud party and a member of Knesset.
Moshe Feiglin in http://www.israelnationalnews.com/ wrote:
Attack – Attack the entire ‘target bank’ throughout Gaza with the IDF’s maximum force (and not a tiny fraction of it) with all the conventional means at its disposal. All the military and infrastructural targets will be attacked with no consideration for ‘human shields’ or ‘environmental damage’.
...
Parallel to the above, a total siege on Gaza. Nothing will enter the area.
...
After the IDF completes the "softening" of the targets with its fire-power, the IDF will conquer the entire Gaza, using all the means necessary to minimize any harm to our soldiers, with no other considerations.
...
Gaza is part of our Land and we will remain there forever. Liberation of parts of our land forever is the only thing that justifies endangering our soldiers in battle to capture land. Subsequent to the elimination of terror from Gaza, it will become part of sovereign Israel and will be populated by Jews.

If it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck ........

Understand YOUR opinion.

Reminds me of the Comedian George Carlin (LOVED HIM) years ago, who would say to his audience: "How many of you believe you will be killed by a terrorist?" When no hands were raised, he would say "OK - Let's just sit back, and enjoy the show."

George Carlin
Well, if crime fighters fight crime and fire fighters fight fire, what do freedom fighters fight? They never mention that part to us, do they?

I'm just wondering why you reacted the way you did to Chris's post, if pretty much all alert levels in various countries are meaningless.

All I did was repeat what I said in a different thread where I stated that the terror threat is a meaningless tool that inspires a disproportional fear of terrorism to the actual threat and because of that is useless and maybe does more harm than good. I felt it was relevant to the topic.

The Threat Level has more to do with the Government Response, than alerting the population.

Мишель believes since the chance of any individual, being killed by a Terrorist is remote: No precautions should be taken.

Мишель apparently has a Comic's thought process.

Those living in a Intellectual Cloistered World (like monks - in a monetary - just talking among themselves - and dismissing other's thoughts/ideas): Always personally attack those who commit, let's say Blasphemy, against their religion/ideology. Religion and Ideology are both, in the end, the same.

Pot -- Kettle.

You do realize that is what "The Israel and Palestine conflict" is. Muslim vs Jew with each side seeing the other, not as individuals, but as a monolithic block of the most extreme position.

Calling to exterminate one side or the other, because they might do something, simply shows that you are part of the problem and can't be part of the solution.

There are two solutions.

1) Kill both sides.
2) The sides become BFF's

Option 1 is genocide. That leaves option 2.

You argue option 3, kill one side. That doesn't work because the winner will now see some other group as an enemy and start again with more confidence because the rest of the world let them get away with genocide.

Hmmm....

The ONLY side calling for Genocide, is not Israel.

Jewish People fighting NAZI Loving Jihadist's.

There IS a choice which must be made. If only morally.

Which is your choice? If 'only' morally.

To ALL those, especially Western European Poster's, starting with Crimea 1, who said Putin wouldn't do this, or wouldn't do that:

Oh, I can see where this is going.
Get more and more effective weapons in the hands of a minimally trained and prepared police force.
Against a populace that is getting splintered amongst those that are lawful and support them vs those who are outlaw and will fight them to all ends.

By all means, lets escalate it by providing the police with more and more deadly weaponry.

I can see where this is going.

And none of you here shall like the outcome.

You may be surprised, I Agree With You.

This Militarization of The Police must stop.

I find it hard to stomach that the militarys of all nations cant use more effective bullets. But the use of landmines, grenades, artillery, cluster bombs, or what ever can make limbs sever or guts spill out are OK. What the hell is the differance in shooting a guy trying to kill you 8 times when a better bullet could have done the job in one or two.

Actually a lot of those weapons are illegal and banned. Its just that the US and other major military powers generally have a problem with signing treaties that limit what kind of weapons they can use.

Nope, Clyde is not representative of US USAians. :)

I just despise The Deranged Left, as much as The Deranged Right.

The Left Wing Ideology cannot stand anyone pointing out their stupidly. I ALWAYS take their silly attacks as a compliment. Keep it up.

Just wondering if there will be a response to this Post. If there is, it will, of course, be filled with Super Intelligent Thoughtfulness.

On second thought. I almost forgot. Left Wing? Nah. Will not be Intelligent.

:):):)

Clyde, do you ever re-read your posts after the fact?

Mate you just come across as an extremist of either the left or the right depending on the topic. I have yet to see you ever take a "middle liner" approach on any subject.

If you're you are 1 of us "middle liners" then it must be that you just can't retire from the "hard line questioning" routine that you were use to by being policeman and just want to keep your skills in with the rest of us?.

Or is there a "deranged middle line" that I've never heard of? (nah, that can't be right)

Or is where you come from in such constant conflict that it just doesn't wash off?

Cheers.

Guess this is becoming an Anti-Clyde Discussion. OK. Been attacked by better.

Those living in a Intellectual Cloistered World (like monks - in a monetary - just talking among themselves - and dismissing other's thoughts/ideas): Always personally attack those who commit, let's say Blasphemy, against their religion/ideology. Religion and Ideology are both, in the end, the same.

Just asking questions, and having them DEFEND THEIR positions. They (Right & Left) cannot do. So they attack The Messenger. Misstating the posts of those who they are attacking said. Or taking it out of context. This is a Classical Tactic of those who understand their position is indefensible.

Basically, The Left/Right are silly little people 'Throwing Thunderbolts From a Mountain Top' against things, but no sane answer of what they would do.

Do they understand their tactic's undermine their position? No.

Let the Anti-Clyde Posting begin again. Just shows the attackers cannot discuss the issues.

The main reason of so many shots, is usually there are more than one individual doing the shooting. You don't have a discussion to see who is going to be the shooter, everyone shoots at once. Unfortunately, with multiple shooters it is very difficult to differentiate between actionable and re-actionable movement, as the jerking/recoil motion of the body being hit may be interpreted as actionable movement. One of the main reasons for smaller ammo is collateral damage, as law enforcement agencies tend to desire not to hit anyone other than the intended target. Another reason, are international conventions.

Under New York State Judicial Rulings (unknown other States), in a Multiple Officer Discharge of His/Her Weapon: Each Officer is Deemed to be acting Independently upon the Same Stimulus.

Not referring to any incident in this discussion: Three Officer's, each firing 5 shots at a Threat, may (not likely) hit him 15 times. Then you get headlines "POLICE SHOOT MAN 15 TIMES". It does appear to be 'overkill', but is not.

Sten-Arne...
Ah well, there goes all belief in any honesty I had for Clyde. He goes from one depth to another. He's off into the filter bin. I do not need to see posts from someone that changes his text when he's proven utterly wrong.

Classic. Make accusation, before learning the truth.

Do you do this much?

Unfortunately, the average cop has a very hard time hitting the broadside of a barn when someone is shooting at him. Not a dig at cops, every shooter has issues when the shots coming at him are real and not a simulation.

As to this empty gun syndrome, they may have been trained to keep shooting as long as they heard the bad guy shooting at them. They heard each other, so the first pause was when they both had emptied their clips.

BTW if the time stamp on the audio is correct is was PDQ after they arrived to when the call of officer involved shooting went out.

'Reasonable Perception, may not Correlate with Reality'.

Just part of my training & experience. This is why it is difficult, sometimes, to sort-out what 'Really' happened.

You could have two sets of Witnesses, with diametrically opposed Statements, and they ALL 'Pass' a Lie Detector. It is THEIR Truth.

'People REMEMBER What They EXPECTED To See'. Just more training & experience.

How can you respect or treat as adults scumbags who take pleasure in executing prisoners?

By making them responsible for there actions. Not by say Other's are the cause, and posting +1 to that.

People don't really integrate in Immigrant Country's, except after many generations.

What make you believe they think YOUR way is better?

OK. Let's send 50,000 over to Sweden, as an experiment, and see if you idea works.

If it does. Great. If it doesn't. I guess we will have the Islamic State of Sweden.

Sten-Arne: Give it a try. Don't experiment with other Country's.


We've already taken more than that this year, but how would you know, since you do not interest yourself of other countries obviously. How about some fact checking before you post eh? :-)

The Swedish Migration Board raises the asylum prognosis to 80,000

Game, Set, Match.....

We, and you confirmed, are talking about: AGAINST THEIR WILL.

Apparently, you do not interest yourself with your own posts.

Has anyone stopped to think that if the rest of the world kept its nose out of their business and stopped stirring the pot "they" wouldn't be anywhere near as big a threat. They'd sort themselves out eventually if left alone.

I had though that the idea of Euro/American Superiority was dead.

The Jihadists wish to set up their Caliphate from Spain to India. This has been their vow, under different movements, since The Crusades.

They are not inferior people, nor children, who are not responsible for their actions.

Please have some respect for them, and treat them as Adults.
