I keep wondering that, and have asked them (the Muslims on here) myself, too! I get no answer.
What Wrabbit says is a good point - maybe the moderates are intimidated by the Jihadists, too...
so they dare not speak up. All I keep getting is "that's not really Islam" - but no "plan" is offered to stop it.
Now we have logical7 here (one of those with whom I've had lengthy conversations) saying "it's what's keeping the US from martial law". WTH? Excuses,
excuses. Justifications for doing nothing. So you think the Jihadists are "on the side of the American people" and willingly playing the buffer zone -
going to their deaths and destroying their own people? Ridiculous.
Certainly nothing to laugh about.
Again - what would be YOUR PLAN to "educate" the "ignorant Muslims" and stop the bloodshed, please, logical7?
Apparently your "real" leaders don't have much to say. In my mind (because if they are
condemning it, they're doing it "off the air") they
aren't doing anything about it except inciting more violence.
If Western "intervention" (covert OR overt) isn't working (which it isn't) - and everyone trying to get the tribes to have "peace talks" just quit
bothering and went home....
WHAT would happen then? I'm not defending the Western forces being there - I think they SHOULD be withdrawn, along with ALL "training forces",
drones, embassies and peacekeepers, and let them all do whatever. Putting our own people in danger - even citizen soldiers as well as civilians - for
the barbaric insanity going on over there is STUPID as well as USELESS and WASTEFUL.
We've had 10 years of "proof" of that now - Israel and Palestine are getting nowhere - and Iran and Afghanistan haven't straightened out their social
issues one bit. I swear it's like when a bunch of misbehaving brats next door are having a backyard fight with loud, obnoxious music, shouting,
obscenities and insults - and the "neighbor lady" comes over to tell them to knock it off since they're disturbing the established peace and
disrupting the whole block -
but she's not their race and doesn't share their ghetto culture, so they ignore her and just carry on - then they complain to their parents, who tell
the neighbors to "stay away from my kids!" and tells the kids "Stay away from those people, they will hurt you!" Even though those same neighbors
have helped the home-owners and even played with those kids.
I understand that people don't WANT values or behavioral codes imposed upon them...and I respect that - so now, the neighbors are enemies. Hostile,
rude, enemies. And I just try to avoid them and mind my own business.
That is what happened very recently in my very own backyard. And those "new" neighbors are turning THIS neighborhood into a noisy ghetto rather than
enjoying the change of scenery and atmosphere it offers them as opposed to urban core ghettos. There's no stability - people come and go at all hours
- can't pin down who actually "lives" there. The other day an unfamiliar vehicle rode past and it sounded like they shot at the house! First
drive-by I've EVER been witness to. Pisses me off.
And this global crap is millions of times worse. The Muslims DON'T WANT WESTERN CULTURE in the Middle East - they don't want it, and the more it is
suggested, the more belligerent they get. It seems. From the pov of an American citizen watching in horror.
What the REAL behind the scenes goings-on are is IMPOSSIBLE for us to know - and even those involved don't "know" what other "special forces" are
doing. It's despicable and evil, and needs to stop NOW.
But, psychopaths don't pay attention to that sort of thinking. And they can't be "cured" - so, I dunno - just let them do each other in and leave us
out of it, I guess.
