I've heard about it this morning on the radio while driving to work; sad but not unexpected, unfortunately.

When will the US and the West in general understand that our policies in the Middle East have been completely fucked up?

Yes this sucks, but Islam does not own a patent on human cruelty. Our behavior as a species has always displayed both cruelty and compassion.

Hopefully the Kurds and Iraqis can knock IS back into oblivion. To be "fair" to them, what they had Foley say is technically true, that this is the United States fault... they are a branch off of Al Qaeda who was an American puppet against the Communists. Doesn't take the blood off their hands, but at the same time we are the ones who trained them to be killers.

Oh I blame either side... WHEN IT'S APPROPRIATE!
What I don't do is blame every evil thing done in the middle east on the U.S and Britain. ISIS, it's views, and it's crimes have absolutely nothing to do with anyones foreign policy. Zero! Iraq being rid of a dictator had the perfect opportunity to turn things around, just as Egypt did. It was fucked up both times by Islamists, not the west, not this time.

Twice now you've been shown videos of islamists performing barbaric executions and twice you have blamed the US and what christians did centuries ago. How about you try reading this situation correctly for a change.

Once again, here is the link to the historical account of Muhammads conquests: http://www.historynet.com/muhammad-the-warrior-prophet.htm
This time read it and understand that ISIS is doing exactly what Muhammad has done.

"Islamic apologetics" is a buzzword created by the right to salve their guilt in having to acknowledge that the west's hands aren't lily white clean in this affair, and railing against people trying to keep them from using the same tired strategy of righteous retaliation that has been failing the whole time (and parallels the response of the people they are railing against). Seriously, the best thing we can do for them now is leave them the fuck alone, and if it weren't for their oil that's precisely what we would be doing.

ISIS, it's views, and it's crimes have absolutely nothing to do with anyones foreign policy. Zero!

IS is an extremist branch off of Al Qaeda, an organization trained and funded by the American government during the very late 80s and early 90s to combat the "Communist threat". It's entire existence is because of the CIA, which happens to exist in a foreign country that isn't Iraq and Afghanistan.

Therefore it's existence IS dependent upon Western forces and thus Western forces shoulder part of the blame. It happened within my life-time, and I am young... so you cant say it was "too long ago" for people to have their hands washed clean of it, especially when it has caused so much suffering to millions and millions of people since it was started.

Quote
Iraq being rid of a dictator had the perfect opportunity to turn things around, just as Egypt did.

You just said the West had NOTHING to do with this situation... then you cite that it is the power struggle in Iraq that is allowing IS this opportunity. I think that is a very fair point, one I agree with and I think most people who have payed attention agree with, but you realize why Iraq is in a power flux right now, right?

Iraq didn't over-throw Saddam by itself. Iraq wasn't even close to over-throwing Saddam by itself. Iraq is in the power struggle it is in atm because the United States decided to finish what they started in the first Gulf War and invade for one reason or another a country that had nothing to do with the "War on Terror"... at best they were a sponsor of terrorists. That is all fine-and-dandy, but if that is the case then we would need to declare war on Saudi Arabia (the biggest funder of terrorists in the Middle East), Iran (second biggest), Pakistan, Palestine, Egypt, and of course ourselves for funding terrorists throughout the Middle East and Latin America (and Europe, and Asia...).

The Iraq power struggle is more than anything else solely on the West. Without our involvement Saddam would still be ruling and, in all honesty, the people of Iraq would be better off. That is really shitty to have to say, but at the end of the day it was a lose-lose situation that we could do nothing about, at least not by sending them guns or bombing them into submission.

Quote
Twice now you've been shown videos of islamists performing barbaric executions and twice you have blamed the US....

I have posted it twice now and you still haven't seem to read a thing I said. What I have said is that the United States, and the West, hold responsibility for the consequences of their actions. If you create a power struggle after training groups to be terrorist organizations, what exactly do you think is going to happen.

No where have I said IS is not responsible nor have I said the West is solely responsible. I have simply said that many of the factors that have lead to this situation are the fault of the West, and if you have a problem with that then you need to take it up (very recent) history and not me.

Quote
...and what christians did centuries ago.

Yeah, I didn't say that anywhere. I honestly have no idea where you pulled that out of. If you are going to accuse me of supporting mass murderers, at least read my damn posts before accusing me of something that, if you had even the slightest clue about what I am about, you would realize how dead wrong you got.

Quote
uhhhh No. I'll expose your "blame everything on the west" islamist apologetics anytime the mood strikes me.

Again; No, you will accuse me of "supporting mass murderers" anytime the mood strikes me because you are ignoring history for one reason or another and completely reading into my posts things I never said, as well as simply ignoring things I said.

This is where all of you are going off the rails.

You think you're fighting discrimination by pointing out that christians were just as bad, but this is not about discrimination it's about violent murder.

If during WWII someone was complaining that Hitler was a monster, how does it help to point out that Genghis Khan was a monster as well?? Do you think prior crimes mitigate current crimes? Do you think two wrongs make a right?
While you may think you're taking the moral high ground all you're really doing is sweeping some new atrocities under the table so you can feel good about yourselves and show everyone just how non racist you are. This is not about racism, it's about violent murder. Stay on topic for fucks sake.

I'll take beheading any day to some of the tools the Catholics and English came up with...
Nice thing to tell the mother of a son who just had his head sawed off by a crazy person.

You may not be callous and insensitive people but you're being callous and insensitive to those whose whose family members have been gruesomely executed.

I'll be off grid for a few days so I don't have time to point out why it's incorrect to blame every murderous action taken by islamic extremists on other nations foreign policy, but if you really think about it honestly you'll probably figure it out on your own.

Islamic apologetics is just like christian apologetics. It's making excuses for barbaric behavior. This has nothing to do with racism or with liberal vs conservative views. When it comes to religion, extremists count on the free pass that religion gets. Don't give it to them.

We've just see two videos of islamic nut jobs brutally murdering bound people and the responses so far are like this 'Fucking Americans' and 'Christians were even worse'.  Both lines of thinking here are off the mark and off topic.

I completely agree that we should leave them alone...as much as possible, but complete isolation isn't possible. There are thousands and thousands of people facing imminent death thanks to ISYS and that has nothing to do with any other nations foreign policy. It has everything to do with Islamic doctrine. Is it so hard to admit that?

I'm sure you've seen the media reports of all the Kurds, Christians, Shiite Muslims (anyone not Sunni) hiding in the mountains with their families. And I'm sure you know that thousands have already been killed. Well, if they were fleeing a natural disaster I'm sure you would want to help, but if they're  fleeing a homicidal religious group then... sucks to be them?

If ISIS wanted the US to disengage they went the wrong way. This offers Obama a chance to leave a legacy before leaving a second term that was going nowhere.

Correct, it is technically true, as I have already pointed out in that we both founded the organization that became IS as well as left Iraq a complete train wreck ripe for groups like this to exploit.

Here's the thing; just because something is technically true doesn't mean that the blood is washed off your hands. It just means you have a valid point, even if you are still completely and utterly wrong about whatever else you are doing.

Edit: Was going to leave this be, but it was just at the head of my facebook and felt very appropriate.

How is the fact that we have been using less-than-legitimate means of shaping these countries to be oil producers and little else, and they didn't like that (something that has been known for a long time and has been willfully perpetrated by us) "knee jerk"?

How is recognizing that we bear some of the blame for what's going on the same as blaming the west for "every terrible thing" going on there?

This is exactly the same shit you pulled in the smoking thread. It didn't wash there, and it won't here.

Islamic apologetics is just like christian apologetics. It's making excuses for barbaric behavior.
Who is making excuses for barbaric behavior? Me? Shinaru? Oh, that's right, NO ONE! Furthermore, speaking of barbaric behavior, why are you focused on the Middle East's barbarism? What about our own barbaric behavior?

This has nothing to do with racism or with liberal vs conservative views. When it comes to religion, extremists count on the free pass that religion gets. Don't give it to them.
Again, we are not giving them a free pass. On the other hand, that extends to us as well: we don't get a free pass from our own barbarism (Guantanimo, anyone?). "Islamic apologetics" is, in fact, a buzzword used by the right to distract from the fact that, as bad the Islamic world is, what they do is not done without a fuckload of provocation. We have messed with the politics of the region for a good half-century or more, carving up their region like a turkey, manipulating their countries so that we are ensured a steady oil stream (the actual welfare of the country is completely secondary to this), put unelected and often ruthless dictators in charge, and waged war on them.

ANYONE would have been angered by what we have done there. So why are you so shocked that, when those particular angry people you piss off happen to believe that death is a good punishment for such actions, that they actually wage violence on you?

We've just see two videos of islamic nut jobs brutally murdering bound people and the responses so far are like this 'Fucking Americans' and 'Christians were even worse'.  Both lines of thinking here are off the mark and off topic.
'Fucking Americans' and 'Christians were even worse' are not words that have been said by any person in this thread, or even is a fair description of their gist. At worst, Brian37 was pointing out that Islam does not have a monopoly on human cruelty, and Shinaru saying that the US is to blame — by which I assume from what he said later, to blame for the situation, not for Foley's execution in particular.

I completely agree that we should leave them alone...as much as possible, but complete isolation isn't possible. There are thousands and thousands of people facing imminent death thanks to ISYS and that has nothing to do with any other nations foreign policy. It has everything to do with Islamic doctrine. Is it so hard to admit that?
No. ISIS is responsible, as far as it is responsible, for what it has done. But we are responsible for the mess that gave birth to ISIS.

I'm sure you've seen the media reports of all the Kurds, Christians, Shiite Muslims (anyone not Sunni) hiding in the mountains with their families. And I'm sure you know that thousands have already been killed. Well, if they were fleeing a natural disaster I'm sure you would want to help, but if they're  fleeing a homicidal religious group then... sucks to be them?
Go fuck yourself. Of course we help them. But we need to do so in a way that helps them solve their own problems and be able to stand on their own. We have to admit to ourselves that we can't nation build them out of their cycle of violence. The Kurds, Christians, Shiite Muslims, etc have to do that themselves.

A good interview with Australian journalist Michael Ware, he talks about the rise of al qaeda in Iraq and the Islamic state.

He was there, he was captured by those who founded the Islamic state, they were going to chop his head off and film it with his own camera, was it an al qaeda commander who saved him from getting his head chopped off?

If you look at al qaeda and the Islamic state from a darwinism view it will explain why the Islamic state has prevailed.

Great interview which goes into how this sectarian strife started in Iraq along with the demise of al qaeda and the rise of the Islamic state.

Mr Ware was one of the few journalists who were captured in Iraq and managed to keep his head.

Maybe when muslims are taught what the meaning of peace is, its a different meaning to what western schools are taught.
Maybe when muslim leaders say its a religion of peace, what they are actually saying when they say peace is 'behead people and rape 4 your olds'

Its funny when looking at islamic belief, it makes comparing to Christianity like comparing a burnt apple pie to a pile of horse shit. I'd still not eat the apple pie, but I could stand next to it and not feel disgusted.

I think ISIS has no desire for the US to disengage.  I don't know this, of course.  It's just a gut feeling.

Well they make a big deal with, 'death to America", and they also need to show off - this is their way to get more recruits. However, a direct confrontation with the US is not in their best interest.

Are you trying to say white people should not criticise Islam?

There are many hadeeth that state profit Mo was a white man.
Quote
He uncovered his thigh and i saw the whiteness of the thigh of the prophet.
sunnah.com/bukhari/8/23 (http://sunnah.com/bukhari/8/23)

Was Mo a fat white dwarf?
Quote
This Muhammad of yours is a dwarf and fat

It's hilarious how those apologists defend this belief.

They have done well fighting superpowers so far, as long as they are not decisive wars.  While Americans and Russians grew weary of fighting (it seemed like such a peachy idea at first as it always does at first), the religion of peace becomes only more emboldened.  A withdrawal from Iraq is viewed as a great victory for Islam.  But for Americans, it's just a relief to quit fucking around and pissing away money on a misdirected war.  Both sides need a little war, but not too much.  By not having to actually lose, both sides can claim victory.  A full blown war, where the stops come out, would lead to an ultimate defeat.  This would not be in Islam's best interests, and the US military industrial complex would lose a golden goose.

Considering that the US is helping Assad with intelligence - unthinkable two months ago - and the idea floating in Washington of cooperating with Iran - never seen since 1979 - ISIS has accomplished more than any other entity in the last 35 years. The American population has been tired after two long wars - Afghanistan and Iraq- but with the beheading of Foley, there will be little protest in the country if the US would embark on a full scale war against ISIS. Sometimes, one single event can change the dynamics in ways no one had foreseen.

Our memories are short.  I'm not sure THAT short, but short.  NPR did a piece on the Foley beheading.  At least one guest said that overall as a national security issue, that incident won't have much impact.  It's only one guy in a world filled with violence.  But I think it is something that could be used to whip the public into a war frenzy if the government wanted.  But certainly, wars have been started over less.  And 10 or 20 years down the road, after the public begins to get bored with peace and the next generation doesn't remember the last pointless war, it would almost be a certain issue that would get us back in up to our necks.  I would think at this time, the public would at least be cautious about getting back in.  Not to say the public couldn't be manipulated, but it won't be as easy for Obama as it was for George Bush.

Not only is the uk a mix racial country, but it has in it people from other countries who came over to here, live off of the uks benefits, and yet preach hatred for westerners and support of sharia law in the uk, all while under the uks protection.

I'm certain if Allah existed he'd see them as pathetic cowards.

As you've mentioned, a lot will ride on Obama. He used some very harsh words to condemn ISIS. Is that an indication that these words are going to be backed up with actions, or will it be another "don't cross  the threshold line" as he warned Syria last year and then no follow-up? But then, there were a lot of negative feedback from the population, which isn't there in this time around. I don't see foot soldiers as in 2003 except perhaps a small number of "advisers", but if Obama means what he said this time, I can see an escalation in bombings and drone attacks. And this will necessarily drag the US into Syria.

The Australian defence forces have a total of 98 muslims.
Estimates of Australian muslims fighting in Syria and Iraq are over 150, several Aussie muslims have been killed while doing "humanitarian work" in Syria and Iraq.

2 Aussie muslims who were given a disability pension because they were unable to work have posted pictures online holding severed heads, when it comes to Jihad they have a strong work ethic.
Our government is cutting these Jihadis off welfare if they leave the country.

I just want to make it clear I have nothing at all against people from any other country coming here to the uk, to go to university, to get a stable job and help the economy here, and to just help and become a valid member of the uk as they would choose, I'm good with all of that and welcome people of have the integrity and open mindedness to do so.

Its just when you have militant muslims coming here to the uk preaching their religious hate, all while under the protection of the UKs standards that I want to kick these assholes back to their own violent country, a country they turned to shit because all those like them couldn't evolve fast enough. I know america and even the uk military has done shit over there to, but coming to a country you apparently hate and preaching your hate speeches against that same country should have you kicked off the cliffs of dover

Amazing what posting random numbers without context can do to try to make your argument fit your agenda. Let's see how it looks when your put it into context...

So let me get this straight... 98 people out of 58,000 is suppose to make us say, "Curses! Those Muslims won't fight for us!".
Yet 150+ out of 382,000 is suppose to make us say, "LOOK! LOOK AT ALL THE MUSLIM JIHADISTS! DAMN EXTREMISTS!!!"

Let me put some math out for you...

98 out of 58,000 is 0.17%.
150 out of 382,000 is 0.04%.

Now, consider this; the U.S. military is composed of only 30% minorities (the majority of African American decent) and only 11% come from the lower class. Assuming Australia is similar, and there is no reason to believe it isn't, why would anyone be surprised that Muslims are a minority? Even in the U.S. military, all "alternative" religions to Christianity make up a grand total of 6.2% of the military population... that includes Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Bah'i.

Regardless of race or religion, the military are not a minority dominated field. Muslims hardly have a monopoly on not joining.

If you consider 0.04% of Australian Muslims going to be "Jihadists" indicative that the majority of Australian Muslims are therefor "hard-working Jihadists", it is quite clear to see (besides your plethora of other bullshit) that you might have just a wee bit of a bias.

-I would wager more that 0.04% of white people steal, which therefor proves that white people have a strong theft work ethic.'
-I would wager that more than 0.04% of Jewish people drink, which therefor proves that Jews are heavy alcoholics.
-Etc. Etc.

See how ridiculous that argument makes you sound?

As for your final line; good for them. Apparently not all Aussies are complete idiots.

Well, they're definitely up there.

Quote from: wiki
ISIS had close links to al-Qaeda until February 2014, when after an eight-month power struggle, al-Qaeda cut all ties with the group, reportedly for its brutality and "notorious intractability."
Source (http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/middle_east/al-qaeda-disavows-any-ties-with-radical-islamist-isis-group-in-syria-iraq/2014/02/03/2c9afc3a-8cef-11e3-98ab-fe5228217bd1_story.html)

They're both pretty bad, and to be sure, al-Qaeda would likely do virtually everything ISIS is currently doing if it had the chance.  But unlike Al-Qaeda, ISIS operates more as a paramilitary force with a penchant for genocide than a terrorist organization.

And now for some more fun news:

https://www.google.com/search?q=ISIS+laptop+of+DOOM&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=sb

Quote
The laptop's contents turn out to be a treasure trove of documents that provide ideological justifications for jihadi organizations -- and practical training on how to carry out the Islamic State's deadly campaigns. They include videos of Osama bin Laden, manuals on how to make bombs, instructions for stealing cars, and lessons on how to use disguises in order to avoid getting arrested while traveling from one jihadi hot spot to another.

But after hours upon hours of scrolling through the documents, it became clear that the ISIS laptop contains more than the typical propaganda and instruction manuals used by jihadists. The documents also suggest that the laptop's owner was teaching himself about the use of biological weaponry, in preparation for a potential attack that would have shocked the world.

The information on the laptop makes clear that its owner is a Tunisian national named Muhammed S. who joined ISIS in Syria and who studied chemistry and physics at two universities in Tunisia's northeast. Even more disturbing is how he planned to use that education:

The ISIS laptop contains a 19-page document in Arabic on how to develop biological weapons and how to weaponize the bubonic plague from infected animals.

"The advantage of biological weapons is that they do not cost a lot of money, while the human casualties can be huge," the document states.

The document includes instructions for how to test the weaponized disease safely, before it is used in a terrorist attack. "When the microbe is injected in small mice, the symptoms of the disease should start to appear within 24 hours," the document says.

The laptop also includes a 26-page fatwa, or Islamic ruling, on the usage of weapons of mass destruction. "If Muslims cannot defeat the kafir [unbelievers] in a different way, it is permissible to use weapons of mass destruction," states the fatwa by Saudi jihadi cleric Nasir al-Fahd, who is currently imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. "Even if it kills all of them and wipes them and their descendants off the face of the Earth."

When contacted by phone, a staff member at a Tunisian university listed on Muhammed's exam papers confirmed that he indeed studied chemistry and physics there. She said the university lost track of him after 2011, however.

Where do you get the 6000+ years from,Islam has only been around for 1400 years.

Is this how the muslims achieved peace-


"According to Islam the Muslim faith was on the face of the earth since the first man put his foot on earth. I mean from the time Adam came to the earth was the time when Islam started."

"Muhammed was not the one who started islam. Adam Jesus Moses Abraham Muhammed and other prophets did what God wanted. and the one who does what God wants is called a Muslim." I would say it it is the same with Christianity starting with Adam and Eve since they both believe in the same God..

You would be hard pressed to find anyone who approves in such "snuff videos", (videos depicting actual murders). Unless of course they believe in a higher being which approves of them.  That is IMO where the very very worst atrocities are perpetrated, simply because their deluded belief in a higher supernatural being that gives them his stamp of approval.
