Jim on Modest Proposal On Syria, Egypt, Christians. In places like Lebanon or Cyprus, outside powers, like the Ottoman Empire, the French or the British, can sometimes maintain an uneasy peace for a awhile. But eventually such places tend to blow up. Human beings are highly prone to group conflict.
Jim on Modest Proposal On Syria, Egypt, Christians. Lebanon had lots of internal conflict and bloodshed in the nineteenth century long before there was a Palestinian refugee population. Lebannon, like many other countries in the Middle East, including Israel, is inherently unstable and prone to deadly conflict.
Observer on Modest Proposal On Syria, Egypt, Christians. This was already tried; it was called Lebanon, pre-1970s. It was the Paris of the East; it was the most beautiful, prosperous, peaceful and democratic nation in the Middle East. And then left-liberals went to work with their usual guilt tripping and convinced the Lebanese to open their hearts to
Jim on Modest Proposal On Syria, Egypt, Christians. Obviously any such program if one attempted to seriously carry it out would involve massive blood-shedding. Admittedly that's already occuring. Getting involved in the conflicts of the Middle East was one of the biggest mistakes the US ever made. Truman was advised by the foreign policy establishment of his time
Wolf-Dog on Christians Flee Mosul Iraq En Masse. Here is another article about the situation of the Christians in Iraq: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-28408926 And here is a discussion of the discrimination against the nearly 10 million Christians in Egypt.

patrick on Christians Flee Mosul Iraq En Masse. That's true about evangelicals and Middle Eastern Christians (vs Israel) although better-informed evangelicals seem to be caring more (the megachurch types are an exception). I notice more concern about Middle Eastern Christians from Catholics and Anglicans. Lots of them are in communion with the Catholic church, and the Church of

Kudzu Bob on Christians Flee Mosul Iraq En Masse. @Matt Evangelicals worship Jews. And when they're not busy doing that, they bring back low-IQ babies from Africa.
Bob on Christians Flee Mosul Iraq En Masse. This has nothing to do with IQ. Like I said, Mideastern Christians tend to be of Catholic and Orthodox sects, which Evangelicals have traditionally been hostile to and regarded as heretical. Evangelicals don't have a lot of solidarity with them.
Matt@occidentalism.org on Christians Flee Mosul Iraq En Masse. You will never get an answer from GWB as you say. I would like to ask GWB's idiot evangelical supporters how they can support this. Does anyone have information on the average IQ of a white evangelical?
Bob on Christians Flee Mosul Iraq En Masse. The Christians in Iraq and the Middle East are from various Middle Eastern Catholic sects that Protestant Evangelicals have never been in solidarity with. Generally, Protestant Evangelicals in the US don't care about these Mideastern Christians. Evangelicals are pro-Zionist and care about Israel. If these Mideastern Christians were Evangelicals, then
James Bowery on Christians Flee Mosul Iraq En Masse. The solution is obviously to draft all of the evangelical Christian young men and send them to the middle East where the top-flight medical facilities of the US military will keep them from dying so they can all return to the US with various forms of PTSD if not outright
Wolf-Dog on Christians Flee Mosul Iraq En Masse. With the exception of Lebanon, where Christians used to be the majority (which has already been replaced by a Muslim majority), the only Arab countries where Christian minorities were treated fairly, were Saddam Hussein's Iraq and Assad family's Syria. In fact, some of the top generals of Saddam Hussein were
John Cunningham on Qatar Labor Market: A Dream For Our Upper Classes?. Steve Sailer recently pointed out that there are worldwide 5.7 billion people living in countries poorer than Mexico, and I wonder what truly open borders would produce. could 100 or 150 million people come in during a single year? I wonder what the shipping companies of Hong Kong would do
Jim on Christians Flee Mosul Iraq En Masse. Saddam was brutal but he was a secular modernist in the Arab world. As predicted by many people, democracy in the Middle East leads to the triumph of religious fundamentalism and vicious ethnic/religious strife.
Gerard Mason on Christians Flee Mosul Iraq En Masse. I always counted myself as one of America's friends in Britain. Sadly, I see that the country I and my parents always respected and defended has been replaced by another country of the same name, and that that country is one I am beginning to wish would leave the rest
Global Thought Criminal on College Grads Flocking Together In Higher Paying Cities. I am in Caspar, Wyoming for the moment. The people there are not terribly sophisticated by East- or West-coast standards, but they are friendly, enthusiastic and white, for the most part, and they seem to believe in having Children.

Wolf-Dog on War Is Great: Increases Material Well Being. Technologically, during wars governments desperately spend a lot of money on cutting edge R & D that is very expensive and speculative. The latter type of R & D rarely gets launched by private corporations because it is financially very risky and profits are unpredictable or too distant in the
Jim on War Is Great: Increases Material Well Being. Mike Street Station - Nations can certainly benefit from war. The expansion of the Roman Empire was immensely successful. Rome was even able to largely eliminate taxes on Roman citizens and still pay all it's soldiers because of the enormous amount of loot acquired. But you can only pillage a
James Bowery on Thinking Ahead 20 Years. Peter there are groups and there are groups of groups and there are various nomenclatures for them -- but only one thing counts here: The culture that founded the civilization in the US finds that its land is being taken from it in an undeclared war spanning over a century.
Black Death on War Is Great: Increases Material Well Being. An interesting argument, probably largely correct. Wars have killed lots of people, both military abd civilian, destroyed vast amounts of property and consumed enormous resources, but we all know that. However, some pretty productive societies have resulted. The Roman empire comes to mind. Its creation and maintenance were bloody in
Dan on War Is Great: Increases Material Well Being. I suspect war is probably one of the main drivers of human evolution in the past several thousand years. There have been hundreds of significant wars in Europe during that time and thousands of smaller spats. Generally speaking, the more advanced group should win and likely displace the less advanced
Mike Street Station on War Is Great: Increases Material Well Being. The premise makes some sense unless of course you are the loser. World War II certainly benefited the United States. We ended the war clear victors, with half the economic production on the planet, the most powerful military in the world, and a cohesive culture that had been mostly united
Jim on War Is Great: Increases Material Well Being. This probably depends on the destructive effects of wars. Perhaps wars in the past did not usually have as much destructive impact as modern wars. In wars like the two world wars the destruction and loss of lives is so immense that the overall effects are probably negative even for

Stephen on War Is Great: Increases Material Well Being. Isn't it more like older males killing off competing younger males?
Ted Cunterblast on College Grads Flocking Together In Higher Paying Cities. Check it out ~ You seem pretty angry. I guess my words got to you. In a civil war situation, Progressives like you and your pet Orcs are extremely vulnerable, and you know it. Hence your fear. You and I both know this is going to end in tears. Difference
Wolf_Dog on War Is Great: Increases Material Well Being. This is a very interesting and important subject. But it is also a chicken and egg question: Are the rising ruling elites created by the war aftermath of wars, or do the wars actually get triggered and implemented by the rising elites for the purpose of attaining their goals? No

For the rest of you lowlifes, I tell you: Refute my ideas and beat them with your own ideas, if you can produce some of your own, and respect the person.

Look Dan, if you don't have the decency to say why you call me reactionary in favor of colonialism you can simply go fuck yourself and your mommy. Can you even explain what you mean by that?

CamelCaseRob on College Grads Flocking Together In Higher Paying Cities. I am guessing that Check-it-out is posting from the Vatican! Am I right?
Whiskey on College Grads Flocking Together In Higher Paying Cities. Machiavelli advises the Prince to kill enemies before leaving them poor and alive. They will thirst for revenge. It is considered a classic, pre-Revolutionary condition for the great mass of people to experience rising income, and then falling, with no relief in sight. In short, Check it out AND Randall
James Bowery on Thinking Ahead 20 Years. Yes, Peter, I got that as clearly manifest in my quote from "The Redneck Manifesto"'s subtitle that includes "hicks" as another pejorative for the maligned group. And?
