Another tragic event indeed!!

You posted this below and I want to highlight it once again just because I strongly believe this will engulf them so bad it will be a place where no life exists.




Honestly, it's a nightmare which will utterly explode in Europe over the next five years.

Yes let's compare a nation that had been in war for decades with Europe, totally makes sense.

No don't think you get it. Nuking Mecca is a catalyst to the eventual purge of every dirty Muslim in this place. We all want it done, know it can be accomplished relatively easily, and understand little of value will be lost.


Do you get that you are encouraging killing innocent Muslims just like the people that attacked the American University did? That's the equivalent of cheering for the terrorists.

Grow a pair and go nuke thousands of innocent people because you think they are 'dirty'?

Holy hell dude...

These attackers are the ones that are guilty, not anyone else.


And if one doesn't agree with nuking (potentially) millions of completely innocent men, woman, and children.... we're "terrorist sympathizers."

I think that's the final straw, I'm done with ATS for quite awhile.

Shocking nobody has yet argued that we dont know it's Muslims responsible, thus turning the thread into a flame war. Where's I_______t, he's not on cue on this one....

Blah Blah. If the Russians attacked and occupied America, built "Russian Universities" to assimilate Americans to everything Russian, you'd be attacking them, too.


That university was built to give women in Afghanistan the chance to study... 40% of the students in that university are women... But I guess that's bad in your opinion huh?...

BTW, it has been shown before many times, even before America ever went to any Middle Eastern country that Islamic extremists were already attacking U.S. and European ships in the late 18th century and early 19th century which precipitated the Barbary wars, with the first one starting in 1801. The Muslim countries from north western Africa demanded tribute from Europeans and Americans by attacking our ships, enslaving people and demanding ransoms to stop the attacks. In fact in 1786 Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with Tripoli's ambassador. They asked why were the NW Muslim countries attacking ships from America and Europe when they had done nothing against these Muslim nations. The response from Tripoli's ambassador was the following.


...
In March 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with Tripoli's envoy, ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman (or Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). When they enquired "concerning the ground of the pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury", the ambassador replied:

"It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy's ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once."
...

en.wikipedia.org...

So again... Islamic extremism is very old, in fact it started with Mohammed since he was a raider, he beheaded men from caravans who would surrender, and would take women from caravans as sex slaves.

This claim that these attacks by present day Muslim extremists are happening because of the U.S. is nothing but BS. Islamic extremism has existed ever since Islam started. These days not all Muslims subscribe to the old extremist ways, but there are plenty extremists still around, and they don't need any excuse except to want to impose their extremist ways...

Subjugation is subjugation. You paint it any rosy color you like.

Edit: To the people defending their country against the occupation anything US is a target. Anyone who collaborates with occupation forces, a traitor.

Amazing how many are such dedicated anti terrorists but deny that in Afghanistan the US military are the oppressors. The US Military invaded and occupied their county, not the other way round.

Pakistan blamed for the attack:


The statement said President Ghani had spoken on the phone with Pakistan Army chief Raheel Sharif and demanded "serious and practical measures against the perpetrators of the attack", Pajhwok reported the statement as reading.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's Inter-Services Public Relations said General Shariff had promised Afghanistan that it would not allow Pakistani soil to be used to stage attacks on Afghanistan. "Afghan authorities have shared 3 mobile telephone numbers allegedly used during the University attack who allegedly were on contact with the attackers... Our evaluation of the evidence provided and outcome of Combing op so far, has shown that all Afghan SIMs used during the attack were from a network owned and operated by Afghan company whose spill over signal affects some areas along Pak-Afghan border," read a statement from ISPR.

This attack is part of the ongoing war in Afghanistan, the longest US war on record, so far.

Geo strategically critical to control of the Middle East, Afghanistan has been invaded many times in history but never subjugated.

"Afghanistan: where empires go to die." Someone finally said it. We all know it and can feel it coming if we don't get out. But we may be too deep in the rabbit hole now.

So the best thing to do is car bomb a market or kill a bunch of your own school kids?

That'll show the big bad USA.

Maybe all the other universities were full and they had to go to the american one?

Besides, what knothead signed off on something like that?
