no no....you criticize them as a people.....like when you trolled that Iranian kid on this thread....asking him over and over if hanging gays was ok in his book......do you think he was INSANE....or wanted to trap him in an argument justifying his people´s religious heritage..."laws"....you think they all follow like maniacs.....killing people like zombies in the street over gay brains.....

PM¿?¿? no....ok here is fine too...

Yes, it was a bit of baiting on my behalf. Its interesting how he never responded though. He could simply have given his opinion. Told us he did not approve. Would that have been difficult? His silence on the matter is telling.

And no, i do not have a problem with Iranians in general. Its their government i despise. I dont expect them to all follow like maniacs as you suggest, but when they hang gays, they do it in public, and many people have shown up to watch. I couldnt imagine watching such a thing, i would vomit.

Japan, perhaps the country in the world with the most justification to make nuclear weaponry, swore them off because of the horrors witnessed firsthand. Perhaps the USA would do much of the same if their people were slaughtered and lands destroyed.

Or then again they would probably just nuke those responsible.

How you read me justifing nuclear weapons in that post is beyond me. I simply said of any nation on earth who WOULD be justified, it would be Japan. And they swore them off, for that i was commending them.

And let me ask you this: would you answer that Iran is justified in creating nuclear weaponry since other states, including Israel has? Or do you think they should be stopped if it was discovered that it was their intention to make a bomb?

All you Iran supporters seem to think it would be perfectly justified for them to have a bomb, and if you scroll up this particular post, you will see where i say in another of my own posts that my mind tells me we cannot stop Iran from making a bomb when so many others have done so already.

Ive already told you my answer. I dont want them to have them, but i could not ask them to stop. When others have them, how can we possibly point at them and tell them no?

Thats my answer.

it's probably up to their government to take the same risk to the globe that any other government would take and has taken....why war here now with this particular enemy......because he is also OUR enemy politically....not enough.....congress should probably get a shot in on that table though.....due process is necessary....not hype related troop deployments.....what is that about....all the tonnage of military equipment and personnel being put all over the planet in harm's way.....that has to stop...or at least....congress has to have a say in that more than just to "Declare war" on paper...after the fact

maybe war itself should be made illegal......why not.....like equate that to murder on civilian level.......justified war or murder would fall into self defense.....only an act of aggression can be responded to in aggression....

you can't just shoot at people pulling out their wallets....

you have to have a reason for your weapons........you can't have bazookas in your trunk to patrol inner NYC....for example....lol...

war should be scarce and remembered for its ending.....not for our ability to end it preemptively

we are people of honor in the end....and we should have honor to our wars beyond the blood of our patriots who spill their blood for their countries.....regardless....because their countries ask that of them....but what of their honor as a people...ours.....what of our moral code we live by and hold high.....

should we abandon our warrior spirits to the winds of fortune and greed....fickle and mired....our dreams are sold to the highest bidding ally.....sold....our finest....given for a foreign cause....again...and again....for money and power....

if they can't convince us....they confuse us....if that can't happen....they kill us......we do

Somehow i think we have always agreed.

What you dont seem to understand is how i can criticize the Iranian government and still not want to bomb them. I have no idea why you politically correct types can criticize every little thing our governments here in the West do, but the minute we take issue with the hanging of innocents in an Eastern country, we're racist, intolerant, war-mongers and more.

Sorry bub, evil happens all over the world, not just here in the West.

Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels - men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.

.....and yes....in the end....we as a species...want enduring peace to FINALY happen once in our recorded history....once....we want to be smart enough to get it.....and when one man looks to another offering a weapon and a reason to use it against another human being....that person upchucks it at the guys head and tells him to freak off

Either way, i will never be like you. Accepting in silence atrocities committed on the other side of the world is not my thing. When i see something wrong, ill point my finger at it. It doesnt have to just be here in the West.

world police huh.....we that good....?

we are that deserving of that imposed privilege....to know better than a people who do not solicit our help....we are not the French helping the rebels against England........we are a bankrupt country....over extended and on the verge of a global financial "adjustment".....we have no singular moral code to offer the world that the world doesn't already have besides our own personal perspective....leave the rest of the world to the world......who are we to deny a people a chance to grow and learn.....who are we to steal that from them....we are not as "invited" as you think.....

No, but unlike you, i dont see the point in turning a blind eye when people get hung for simply being gay.

To you, thats acceptable because thats their culture. To me, it will never be acceptable, because those put to death are innocent of nothing worse than loving someone their culture doesnt approve of.

is the question you ask
do I think their culture is acceptable.....or do I think if I was part of their culture...I would find it unacceptable..?¿?

from MY cultures perspective.....eating bugs is nasty....eating rice with your hand is dangerous and gross....personally I think cutting your penis to circumcise it is strange..... making elongated skulls or necks with cool little rings....

if you eat yourselves....because you like it....its magic....then hey....don't expect me for dinner.....

That map has shown up in numerous threads on ATS as "evidence" that the US has strategic intent in Iran invasion (and Switzerland!)-- but it only does so if the interpretation of the map is taken out of historical context-- which is exactly what those using it count on happening.


Start paying attention. Where did I make those claims about that map? What exactly did I show besides a visual aid showing the military bases? If people want to make outrageous claims based on a map linking it with strategic intent than so be it. US showed some aluminum tubes and everyone took it as a claim that Iraq had nuclear weapons.

That's about as constructive of a comment as I would have for you. If America is so awful and Iran is so great go then. We won't miss you. Good luck with your free speech over there. That is if you survive after your CIA trial. The US doesn't stop its citizens from leaving. Have a nice trip.


I thought you would respond like that.
I am not American. I am Canadian. I have never claimed to be anything other than that. I would never live in the US just because of the government, I have no problem with most of the people...but if I did, I sure as hell would leave.

True.

These people detained here are not simply innocent gays however. They are POWs. I do agree that Guantanamo needs to be torn down or made more transparent. Again, im no fan of the USA either.


So they have to be innocent gays? Why can't they be innocents? There are plenty there...do a quick google search.

Why aren’t they invading North Korea then? Israel? India? Pakistan? They are non-signatories of NPT. They don’t have what America wants!



Last time I looked Iran is not being invaded either....


Not yet...wait awhile, unless they start taking major doses of common sense...I am talking about both sides.
