I'm hoping that by deradicalization terrorists groups remain fringe movements who don't have the money or power to gain access to WMD's.


Hope is in the same boat as assumption...

"The World-Herald has learned that at least 30 shots were fired at the Wendy’s near 43rd and Dodge Streets.

Officials said it appears the only shots fired came from police."

Let me guess...

You assumed correct. Peeing my pants? No, for the simple fact is that I see a sensible man posting about his responsibility in teaching his children weapon safety in a highly responsible manner.

Weapons are just tools & like any other tool used by the untrained can become deadly.

If everyone took the same attitude as yourself, there would be less fatal incidents such as the one posted.

I only stated what is America doing letting minors handle machine pistols/guns.

This is more deserving of a Darwin award than anything else.


Carry on like that, & the USA will be holding onto the number one spot for many a year!

Well as I've already stated several times, most men have their brains between their legs & to see that in the 21st century, many just do not see the damage done by their words or deeds...

Of course Americans are 'idiots', or whatever else we are called with silly smug superiority. We have no need to comment upon whatever internal problems, or silly culture, you may have.

Why this obsession? I have never been able to understand it.


You have stated that you did a tour of Vietnam & also served as a police officer. If we are to believe this a true statement, then the above comment was uncalled for.

As for obsession? What obsession? I only stated what is America doing letting minors handle machine pistols/guns.

Even though I hold full licenses from a motorcycle right up to Class 1 HGV's, I have enjoyed cycling for 45 years & often find it quicker sometimes to do shopping by bike due to traffic congestion.

However, to this day, I feel this should be toughened up on & any cyclist caught should face a very heavy fine rather than receiving a slap on the wrist or ignored by the authorities...

Too scared to cycle on the roads? Then get on a damned bus!

Finally, someone has had the nerve to speak out...

I think many speaks out.
But politicians...
Do they listen?


Yes, they listen every day...

...to the sound of their own voices!

Well lets be realistic here. Sure, ISIS would love to conquer the entire world. But that goal is just patently unrealistic. For one, they remain a fringe group. They are so extreme not even Al Qaida really likes them. That means they have limited their supporter base significantly because they are simply to extreme for the vast majority of people.

Also, yeah these guys have had some success against third rate armies. But they will need a lot more and a lot better equipment if they really want to take on the US, Russia, China or Europe. Converted pick up trucks only get you so far. Even if they manage to form an actual state they need massive investments to build up an army, and it remains to be seen how willing the world is to trade with them. And the majority of the world would probably boycott the hell out of them. And like I said, if they do become a state, they will be forced to play by certain rules that would weaken them.

The worst they can do is set of a wave of terrorist attacks all over Europe. But that would only serve to strengthen their enemies.


It has already been shown on this thread that you neither have any logistics or military experience, yet you continue to claim that Europe can defend itself with NATO...

ARE YOU SURE OF THAT?

That man's word states more than what you will ever be able to, or are you going to argue against him?

Yep, recoil can be a bugger! The first weapon I ever fired was a Lee Enfield .303 rifle & did not have it securely braced against my shoulder. It hurt for weeks.

As for letting minors handle machine pistols/guns, just what are you Yanks thinking of?

NATO would struggle to defend itself against Russia

...hence Putin laughing all the way as he knows, there's no one able to stop him.

R.I.P the "Frozen Penny".

If a book on Seti is ever produced, the "Frozen Penny" deserves a chapter all of its own.

Awaiting further news of the Penny on your thread was much better than watching a weekly TV serial.
