    I certainly haven't forgotten about the Poles, the ~30 million that Stalin killed, or the >1 million that Pol Pot took from this world. History is littered with insane sociopaths.
    Roger, understood, Carb. Thanks.

The interview is the very first part of the show so just skip the first minute intro and you'll be right on it.

    Miller, thanks for posting. It needs to be posted as much as possible.

    Cowards. Here's to hoping they all disappear off the face of the earth.

    Why must we sit on our hands in ignorance simply because their murder count hasn't reached seven figures yet? Are all those people who have been slaughtered already just expendable lives? And are those future innocent victims up to 1,000,000 simply of no value to anyone?

    Considering all the grief that Neville Chamberlain has (rightfully) been given for failing to keep Hitler in check, the glossing over of the overt murderous intentions & actions of ISIS is ignorant & dangerous.
    I'm not glossing over how real of a threat that ISIS poses. I'm all for their swift eradication. I'm fully aware that they would take every Christian\Jewish\Hindu\Buddhist\non-believer\'infidel'\etc. life on this planet with the push of a button if they could.

    All I've done is state that other regimes have done equally deplorable things, and that the general populace won't take sufficient notice until the situation is even further out of control than it already is. How my statements are being misconstrued as something even resembling support for these animals is beyond me.

    Now, now, Carbie cakes. No need to talk to me like I'm a naïve loony bin liberal 14 year old emotional girl. I assure you I'm not a loony liberal.

    But what I am is someone that's been in almost every country of the Middle East. And if I wasn't actually living/visiting in the remaining countries, I've stood on the borders or stood on heightened land looking into or over the other few except for Saudi Arabia.

    I've also been to Auschwitz, where my military-history-major ex-husband of German descent helped me as someone of Polish descent relive what the Jews and Poles went through in that camp as we toured it. Or did you forget that millions of Poles also died at the hands of Nazis as well?

    So spare me the condescension.

    You can disagree by posting with counter factual points, but don't f*cking talk to me like I'm 14 years old. Get it? Got it? Good.

    I'm telling you that ISIS is worse and we can just agree to disagree because you're not offering up a damn thing to change my mind.

IOW, I'm saying be careful in your analysis of exactly which way social media takes the cause.
    Good point. Emma.

    Part of the issue is that some in the world, enjoy seeing all that on the 'net and embrace it. Similar to thugs in the US aping what they see and hear...

    And of course politics come before people's lives. Let alone Americans lives. [emoji35]

    I think we still have to be careful looking through our "normal person" eyes at this when you talk about social media.

    So far, social media has actually helped ISIS recruitment significantly. It has turned off many people too, but up till possibly this last week, it didn't transfer to any kind of tough action by the alliance. In fact, ISIS has been successful at making the alliance timid, such as the UAE stopping their sorties in December.

    I'm saying that King Abdullah is changing that now, but that's not social media.....that's someone on our side showing tremendous courage and leadership.

    In other words you can't assume social media automatically means the sickos will stop their sadism. So far, social media has been used to swell the ranks of psychos.

Nearly every co-worker thought the same.
    The insight from your #3 is exactly why this is my favorite site on the entire internet.
