Yeah, they've sent a destroyer, the USS Truxtun, to the Black Sea which is joining an aircraft carrier strike group and Turkey has scrambled jet fighters in response to Russian reconnaissance aircraft. There have been four, I think, F-15s sent to Lithuania.

The best result would be the withdrawal of Russian forces and a plebiscite held in Crimea under the supervision of impartial UN observers to guarantee that they are fair. No need for each side to continue the d*ck waving contest.

Spudman619 Jan 17 2014, 6:54pm replied:

I have no quibbles with what you've said save for the what happens in Europe doesn't affect America. It does. European nations are the US's staunchest allies. For example, in Iraq: Round 2, nations involved in the war from Europe include everyone from the UK and Italy to Estonia and Hungary. The second biggest contributor to said war was the UK with 46,000 troops. The US sent 165,000 roughly at peak. If these European countries did not contribute to Iraq, the US would likely have had to contribute more troops to this conflict leading to a bigger cost on its part. Not to mention the fact that, the last time I checked, only France was willing to trawl into Syria with the US, knocking out the additional European soldiers that were present in Iraq, as well as the blue water navy of the UK.

To factor economics into this, the US invests about three times more into EU nations than it does into all of Asia while the EU nations invest several times more into the US than they do into India and China combined. If, for whatever improbable reason, the USA and European nations become enemies politically or militarily, that's a lot of investment that's at risk of being wasted. Generally the two continents are inter-reliant on each other; the USA has massive military and economic power while Europe is the ally that ensures, so long as the politics is right, that America has the extra manpower, money and political support to drop large mounds of faeces on evil dictators or terrorists around the world and do so without major opposition from modern nations. The best example of this would be the Cold War, Europe was the equivalent of a 'swing state' if Western Europe were pro USSR, bearing in mind their international relations in the form of overseas territories and the Commonwealth of nations (a sorely underused political force), then it is more likely that the USSR would come out on top as world superpower.

I should add, the USA most certainly does not deserve the terror attacks from militant muslims just as Britain did not deserve the 7/7 bombing, Lee Rigby most certainly did not deserve the cowardly attack he suffered, Denmark did not deserve the attempts to sabotage its economy after an image of muhammad was drawn and published and the Indians didn't deserve to have bombs placed under vehicles in Orissa intending to blow up police officers.

My history teacher was in New York and was asked by a waiter, once he realised he was British, 'Well, d'you want us in or out buddy?'. We had a discussion as a group in class, only 3 of us including my teacher, and we decided that we'd sooner have the USA involving itself and leading to positive change through unrefined means (see the removal of dictator Saddam Hussein; it was positive but involved the false WMD Iraq, or Afghanistan; some good work is being done but the people we're leaving in control of the country are unpopular dirtbags). Anyhow, my personal dislike for the United States is the relative lack of education of the people there. I have been to the US, more specifically New York. I was asked by several people where I was from due to my rather unusual (or sexy) refined English accent. Anyhow, most of the comments were rather silly. Things like "Why don't you just invade France and finish the rivalry once and for all?", "What's it like having a Queen rule the country instead of a proper government?" and probably the golden one; "Why don't you let Scotland be independent? I mean, they practically are already!"

This sort of lack of aware of other nations and their politics grates on me. I make it my job to know about Europe. I can name every country in it, west to east and their capitals. On top of that, I am aware of American politics and can name a fair number of states. I also know about American history as well as European. While most Americans on here act civilly and are intelligent, there are plenty who believe the USA can do no wrong and has shouldered every burden alone throughout history. That's why I have a slight distaste for the USA.

Also, it wasn't just the religious that were targeted; the overall death toll is placed between 40,000 to 100,000, of which only 6,832 were members of the clergy. The following White Terror, which killed between 150,000 to 400,000 targeted any opposition to the Right Wing victors which included Atheists, Generals, Intelligentsia and political leaders who had supported the Madrid government. So overall, lots of people died but it was for political reasons. I have yet to find a mention of it being atheist driven.

You would be correct in assuming that I haven't heard of this. However some quick research suggests that the Church and religious were targeted by Left Wing rioters as the Church supported the Right Wing. So far I have not found any mention of Atheism. However, the link you provided only goes to Chapter 5 so I'll have to look a bit deeper for the full story.

Definition of militant as an adjective: adjective

adjective: militant


1.


favouring confrontational or violent methods in support of a political or social cause.

So yes there are militant atheists in the sense that we can be quite confrontational but there are none/very few who use violent methods. The last time I heard about an atheist flying a plane into a building was..um.. never, while radical militant muslims did that in 2001. The last time atheists tried to plunder the Middle East was... again never yet we've all heard of the Crusades right? So yes, atheism can be verbally militant but has never, as to my knowledge, been physically and violently militant.

It's weird to say it wasn't an act of terroism really. They were spouting drivel about toppling the Government, shouting 'Allahu Akhbar(not sure of the spelling' and ,according to the news, were planning on killing responding police officers. They created fear and anger to push a political opinion (that of toppling the government and trying to get us to pull out of the mid-east). That is the definition of a terrorist act. It doesn't need bombs to be one. These individuals are scum. I'd love to see the look on their faces when their fellow prison inmates come knocking once they realise who they are.

I don't believe America should just bull-rush them, we saw how well that worked out in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. The international community should ignore them. If they make any threats of violence, we respond in kind. Not actual violence, just a bolstering of American/NATO/UN fleet presence and posting troops along the border to reassure South Korea and intimidate North Korea into submission. They're a small nation with 'little man syndrome'. Besides, China has already condemned several of NK's missile tests, so it seems likely that with time, China will become fed up of them.

Canada, Australia and New Zealand are all nations that were born from the British Empire, as the US was, and are actually younger than the US yet none of these are anywhere near as belligerent or dangerous as the US. Using the excuse that a powerful military and economy has made America arrogant is all the more reason that America is not reliable and shouldn't be trusted with these things.

In some cases yes. But as Elf said, the French revolution was taken to far. A pact between the middle and upper classes to overthrow the ruling class became a 'You're well off so you must die.' fest. The Russian revolution of 1905 led to nothing but repression while the later two in 1917 led to a useless government and then a communist government that was hijacked into a dictatorship. Generally, revolutions tend to replace an old system with a carbon copy save for names and flags.

I would favour courts over mob rule. Remember, mob law brought us such things as lynch mobs and witch trials. Often with mob law, what the mob says, goes regardless of evidence. However, I do believe that the public should have some input on court proceedings. For example, that Texas scum child who ran over four people but got away with it because of 'affluenza', public outrage and opinion, in my view, should lead to his sentence being changed. That said, it should only really have an impact on cases where there is no doubt that an individual committed a crime, as in this case, as it would help prevent the rich slithering out of prison sentences. In cases where valid evidence is provided on both sides, the public can have a view point but the facts will decide the outcome.

This topic is difficult to discuss. As we live in a more liberal age than our forefathers who created these laws, capital punishment is generally frowned upon. I, however, am in favour of it in cases where it is not likely but provable that someone committed a serious crime (rape, murder, terrorism). That said, I'm also a guy who believes that prisons are for punishment, not rehabilitation and that we should remove animal testing in favour of prisoner testing in return for a slight sentence reduction.
