The other night I was reading about how in the city of Gao in Mali, Africa things went way wrong. Recently, a battle erupted between factions and a
city of 60,000 was devastated by conflict forcing many to flee the city in terror.
Complete dissolution of civilization into destruction. That ruined a lot of people's lives, while others lost their's.
That reminds me of what happened back in 2007 where I wrote a thread called "Say No to the US Civil War 2".
. Obviously I didn't care about grammar etc, so excuse that. I will recopy
what I said because it's very important information.
I could say the same thing today again in a thousand other words, but reprinting what I said then with corrections or small additions seems fitting. I
did then and do now feel the vibe of this amazing land and people that is the Americas.
I cannot sit by while the media and government facilitate and orchestrate an environment of fear, hostility, and arbitrary division. It only leads to
one thing, violence. And violence is the failure of diplomacy and respect which is what destroys civilizations read your history books. This dishonors
"I don't know where else to say this:
But, everywhere I look, all I see is insanity.
Both sides of the arguments, I see people becoming so frustrated with each other, people are starting to get hurt.
Needlessly. Over words.
Look, if we ever expect to be a Truly civilized nation, and have ANY decent future for our Children, than please put down your weapons.
Keeping them near you is fine, if it makes you feel safe. That's fair enough. I support this most precious human right.
But lower them, let us have 1 freaking moment of faith in the human race for just 1 millisecond, Please!!!
Do any of you, either side of the argument you are on, even realize the Pandora's Box we are about to open?
I've read a lot of threads here, and thought about it a good deal. Its obvious Someone wants us to kill each other
Someone wants a US Civil war part 2. Who ? Like i would know, the responsible party hides in the shadows. But it must exist.
What if it doesn't exist? What if there's no conspiracy? Well, this is the MOST amazing set of coincidences I've ever seen. I mean WOW! lol
It doesn't matter if its a conspiracy or not, the truth is plain for all to see
People in America are freaking out, and once an armed revolt starts, the gov't will clamp down with extreme force.
Then there goes the country, down the toilet. Then its over for our children.
You really wanna make it happen like that? I thought all of you loved this country. And everyone's about to destroy it
I'm just asking one simple small favor . Don't kill each other. Because if you do, your killing my children and grandchildren. I just want you to know
that. Our grandchildren!
I thought we were "claiming" to be smart, rational, civilized beings?
Clearly, the clever thing to do, is to halt and advances for armed conflict in our precious homeland. Let us reach out to our lost brothers in
understanding, not bullets. Let us love our enemy, and find hope for them in our hearts.
%()*&$@!!!! Seriously People!
Americas greatest strength lies not in her armor of war.
It can only be found in the Love we all have for her! And what she can do for our peoples, and for all mankind. That is the America we all love.
And that is the America we will all lose. If you kill for it. This time around, the killing will reach all of America's children.
We will do it to ourselves. And once we kill ourselves. The rest of the world will quickly break down into war. All kinds of wars.
We should all step up to the plate. And risk our neck for Faith in mankind.
Remember giving the riot cops flowers? It works. Lets just talk our way out of this. Its easier than DYING!
Just put the weapons down, everyone!
I'm afraid my children and i will get caught in the crossfire.
Let us make it our goal to never give into the temptation to Kill to achieve political gains. For that is the mark of the beast we are trying to
The beast within us all...
We need now more than ever, to just forgive the past, and love each other right now and holster the guns please. Thanks.
Look, I don't care if you think Osama was the mastermind of the upcoming conflict.
I don't care if you think it was the CIA. I don't care if you think it was God and the Devil. I don't care , if you think this is all a wild
I just want everyone to chill out. And be mindful of the wisdom of the past, our history. So we will not have to repeat it, again! And believe you
me, this has already happened before! More than once!
Choose Peace. Choose a strong, developing, and prosperous Civilization.
Say No! to the Civil War 2."
I've wanted to do threads on all sorts of other things, but you gotta admit this message needs to be said right now to anyone who is going nuts and
considering something crazy which will end bad and wrong. That goes for all humans no matter what uniform they wear or in the absence of any insignia
