Fortunately, soldiers took him out before he could kill anyone but himself. I love the term used...he was neutralized.

Re: Suicide bomber triggers an explosion in Belgium

My profiling machine is still warming up. Can someone jump in with a "religion of peace" while I try to jump start this thing?

What do you tell a Muslim family who is living here in the US working and trying to live a peaceful life? Do you call them slackers for not getting with the Jihadi program?

Re: Suicide bomber triggers an explosion in Belgium

We view them as the religion of peace, and they view us as the religion of peace?



I don't think we're launching flowers.

My point would be that there is no answer.

Re: Suicide bomber triggers an explosion in Belgium

I actually have an Iranian buddy. He lives across the street from another buddy of mine who's a doctor. A Jewish doctor. We're all about the same age and all have kids in the same grade. Best thing about these two guys is they are both massive weed aficionados. The Persian and the Jew and every time we get together they are vaping in some corner of the backyard where the kids can't see. I tell them they ARE the two state solution.

Anyway, I'm open to friendship with muslims, and I harbor no ill will toward peaceful Muslim families. You know "the good ones".

If you say you vape weed with them, my brain will be the next reported explosion.

And I don't think they're exploding laughing gas bombs. If they were, the world would be laughing so hard indeed.

Are you saying we're purposely targeting civilians to further our cause?

I think our military response is just that. A response to stop/prevent something. However, I won't disagree the final solution would be to just remove ourselves completely from those areas, and let them kill each other. Because what we're doing, is not working.

Re: Suicide bomber triggers an explosion in Belgium

I'm so tired of these awful fucking bombings I'm going to lighten this up with some of my experiences with the Muslim community this year.

First and foremost is my volunteer work in my daughter's classroom with a mother of another student. She is a Syrian immigrant. She came here on a student visa in 2006 to attend college. I'm going to be extremely superficial here but it can't be ignored. This woman is hot as fucking hell. I won't perv out into too much detail, but she's got a great body, wears revealing outfits, big tits, chocolate complexion. She's smart, her kid is smart. He's fluent in two languages. She loves the hell out of her son. She's just wonderful. An exemplary person all around. It's a blessing that someone like her and her son are a part of our neighborhood and our country. It is a blessing that she or he boy are not one of these terrifying, infuriating civilian casualties I see on the news.

She definitely stands in contrast to this other mother at the school. I've written about her before. She wears a hijab and she frequently wears this stupid fucking t shirt that says "Just Because I Cover My Head Doesn't Mean I'm Stupid". What a stupid fucking slogan. It doesn't make any sense. There is no thinking or stereotype about the hijab being about stupidity. I've heard arguments against wearing it, but none were about stupidity. Meanwhile I don't see her volunteering or contributing in any meaningful way. She's just standing around being a billboard for her stupid fucking victim mindset.

Anyway, I definitely prefer the sexy, weed smoking, assimilated immigrants over the hard liners that hold on to their old ways. Does that make me a bad person?

(lights joint)

Well I guess I just don't like, give a fuck, man.

No. But I like to consider why someone is willing to strap a bomb to their torso and kill people. I'd imagine one answer is that they view us the way we view them ... terrorists. Violence and terror begets violence and terror. Am I the only one who understood what was portrayed in Boyz n the Hood? Street gangs on an international level.

Much like our government's domestic problems, nobody is willing to give and take. If they are, they're insulted for being globalists. Nobody is doing the right thing for anyone.

That sunny enough for you?

Re: Suicide bomber triggers an explosion in Belgium

While any loss of life is tragic, thankful that the only casualty was the terrorist. Since the blast apparently didn't even kill him immediately, have to wonder just how much explosive potential he was packing.

Not making light of the loss of life, but it was interesting to note the description of the perp from one witness as being "tanned and well-built."

Sounds more like he was describing a Tommy Hilfiger model.

Terrorism. A contractor's dream.
