We have been told many times that U.S.A controls the internet. What I do not understand is this. If we can control the internet, why haven't we simply shutdown the internet in the part of the world where ISIS lives and does its dirty work? It could not be that hard to flip a switch and stop internet traffic over Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan. We can control the access points around the world. It would certainly hinder ISIS ability to recruit and put up their videos.

Because they can´t.
Look at some maps and ask yourself why I mentioned >turkey< and >bandwith< here.

Edit: Because no one seems to get the point:

So you're suggesting we cut off parts of the world from the internet? Sounds a bit fascist to me. ISIS has more ways than just the internet to recruit people to their cause.

How would you feel if say Israel or Saudi Arabia cut the U.S. off from using the internet? Terrible idea.

It is said that a *picture paints a thousand words*..... and however ugly

and awful the picture is - there would always those who would not believe

that humans could behave in that manner, to be convinced they need

to see the evidence?

Remember the oft used phrase on ATS? ... which I don't seem to have seen

lately

*Pic's or it never happened*

There is an interesting op piece by Gannett/usa today right now on this topic.

Stopping terrorists and radicals from using youtube.

Hopefully freedom doesn't get deemed radical.

Donald Trump proposed this a few debates ago and he was called a racist islamophobe for it. Anyone with a sane mind agrees though, I think it's a great idea.

I agree 100% let's stop ISIS videos, by wiping the floor with them so bad, that the thought of ever joining such a group is more terrifying than the urge to kill innocent people for their notions of Allan snack bars,Anything less is a travesty.

No, just stopping the flow of traffic they're using to the USA. Are you really against hindering ISIS recruitment from overseas to the U.S.? It's not about killing their internet (which shouldn't be a big deal anyways), it's about shutting down traffic to the USA.

Unfortunately the whacko islam apologists will never go for a logical common sense idea. I don't know why those un-American idiots don't move to the Middle Least, where things are so much better than here in America.

What about the civilian population living in those countries. Punish them for where they're stuck living?

So you'd be ok with a country across the world cutting off your access to the internet because of something you have no part in? It's a terrible idea and any sane person can see how bad of an idea it is. You're suggesting that we punish everyone for the actions of a few.

Well a war is fought on multiple fronts, the dissident propagandists are needed here by the enemy, and in our society they have a loud voice to excuse,and in their society those who may agree with us will be killed. We must protect our society as they will use our rights and freedoms against us,we must always challenge their ideas equally and in the public eye. If our society was not devided this enemy would be crushed long ago, also we ourselves wouldn't be free. I will take freedom and a divided society, over the alternative.

You actually believe this don't you? You believe that anyone who sympathizes with the average Muslim is somehow an "un-American whacko". The average Muslim is not violent, if that makes me un-American then someone who doesn't like hot dogs is also un-American.

What an ignorant point of view.

Because undisputed bad ideas gain ground and following by people with less critical minds also know as window lickers, or useful idiots.

You know last time we had this argument I was so mad I had to get out of the house
I went shopping.. I have no clue how I got into the shops but then I looked up
Scottish guy by toilet paper was giving recipe to Indian guy who couldn't understand him so he was laughing with a African guy at him and it made a Asian little girl with her little Muslim friend giggle

That moment .......... Felt right ...... Felt like freedom

Now I am watching jersey housewifes and omg wtf is that


Don't get me wrong .. Out of these people you are the only one I would trust to keep me safe if SHTF
