1  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If Russia's claim to Crimea legitamate? on: Today at 01:19:50 pm
What does 'legitimate' even mean in this context? What it was was a military conquest; i.e. historically the usual way that international boundaries have changed, but vaguely frowned on these days.

If 93% of a country wish to be under another country's rule, should they not have the right? Is the country that keeps them not essentially holding them captive?

I don't see how people can say Russia's annexation of Crimea was illegitimate. If 93% of Crimea wants to be with Russia, why should the government of Ukraine have the right to hold on to them? Isn't the land supposed to belong to the people of the country, not the government?

Well, you know, 174%  of your family members wants you to move to Bujumbura, but you still have not done so.

You are a proud internationalist, your opinion means nothing to me.

I don't understand how Republicans can reconcile the belief that Obama is Muslim with his positions on things like gays, feminism and abortion. If he is a Muslim he's certainly not the radical type. Do most conservatives simply not know that Islam is a conservative religion?

Why do you want the GOP to be the party of the poor so badly?  You're going to be disappointed.

I would be happy if the GOP became the party of the poor. I might even consider voting for them in that situation, depending on their views on other issues. Bobloblaw seems to believe that they should be the party of poor white racists, though.

As opposed to being the party of poor black racists, as the current Democratic party is?

Thank you President Obama for letting 12 million criminal savages stay and here prey on the citizens you swore an oath to protect.

35-37%. The race hustlers in the current administration have done permanent damage, which is why they are compensating with third world immigration.

Supporting Bush = you are normal
Supporting Clinton = you are a partisan
Supporting Trump = you have an I.Q. well below average 

Yes, all "normal" people still think going into Iraq was a good idea.

As long as they can meet the same physical requirements as the men, sure.

This is not what is happening though, standards are constantly being dropped in the military, among police, and firefighters to allow for women to come in.

The two "first female army rangers" who just got headlines only did so because the standards were dropped to allow them to pass.

When ISIS captures our slower, weaker, weighed-down female soldiers and starts using them as baby factories and selling them into sex slavery, well, be careful what you wished for.

The standards are sexist, you see. And they don't care how many people are going to be hurt by the lowering of these standards, just like they don't care how many are hurt by affirmative action and it's promotion of race/sex over ability. To the SJW everything, including biology, is sexist, homophobic, racist, transphobic, ableist, and whatever new term they make up next week. They are the greatest enemy human civilization has ever faced, and almost no one cares.

He's done a lot of good work post-presidency (working to fight to diseases in developing nations, being one of the few major figures in America to criticize Israel or the U.S. state) but this hardly erases his horrific presidency, where, in the name of "human rights" he supported (off the top of my head) genocides in Guatemala and East Timor, radical Islamists fighting against the pro-woman government in Afghanistan, and the brutal Shah of Iran. On domestic policy, he wasn't much better, and got the ball rolling on Reaganomics, with his policies of deregulation and unionbusting. HP.

Also, what TNF said.

Conservatives are always saying he betrayed the Shah and is responsible for Khomeini taking power.

"Ultra Nationalism." 

You're using hyperbole; he's not SD.

On immigration issues, he's far more ultra nationalist than Putin. Even crazy Putin would never in his wildest dreams consider deporting 11 or 12 million of his own citizens. Actually Putin is trying to do the exact opposite, trying to artificially highten considerably the birth rate of Russia, cause he's seriously worried that Russian influence in the world could shrink considerably with a declining Russian population. Strange that Trump doesn't see this, that both the economic and diplomatic influence of the US will decline in the future if the government forcibly remove 4% of its own population. Soon enough, China will have a bigger economic impact in the world than the US and apparently Trump wants to hasten that paradigm shift. Even China's military power is increasing by between 10% and 20% every year. Trump's response is to make the US even smaller and less significant.

As if those "citizens" are contributing anything to America's success. They are nothing but a parasitic burden.

Quote
The North's official Korean Central News Agency reported Friday that leader Kim Jong Un ordered at an emergency military meeting that his troops "be fully ready for any military operations at any time from 5 p.m. (0730 GMT) Friday."

The report said that "military commanders were urgently dispatched for operations to attack South Korean psychological warfare facilities if the South doesn't stop operating them."

Seoul said the North fired Thursday across the Demilitarized Zone to back up an earlier threat to attack South Korean border loudspeakers that, after a lull of 11 years, have started broadcasting anti-Pyongyang propaganda. North Korea, which denies firing at the South, later said the South Korean shells landed near four military posts but caused no injuries. No one was reported injured in the South, either, though hundreds were evacuated from frontline towns.

I hate people who are against nationalism and claim to be only "international citizens". That's fine for you, but don't be forcing it on others.
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is the opposition to the Iran Deal? on: August 20, 2015, 02:36:05 am
Because it is a joke deal that doesn't stop Iran from being a rogue nation or from eventually getting nuclear weapons.

There's nothing we can do to prevent that. The international community is moving on in regards to this issue, we'd be completely alone.
18  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is the opposition to the Iran Deal? on: August 19, 2015, 04:51:18 pm
What the morons don't seem to understand is that none of the other countries involved in the deal are going to agree to more sanctions, and US sanctions alone don't harm Iran because we weren't doing trade with them anyway. As for the US taking military action against Iran, it would make the reaction to our invasion of Iraq look enthusiastic by comparison. Our reputation would be destroyed.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What is Donald Trump's appeal as a candidate exactly? on: August 18, 2015, 02:05:46 pm
Stupid people like stupid candidates.
Bigots like bigoted candidates.
People who hate America like candidates who hate America.
Socialists love socialists.
Angry people like angry candidates.
People who are soft on defense like candidates who are soft on defense.

Apparently "soft on defense" means not sending Americans to die in wars that have nothing to do with our national security.

WMDs did exist in the 1990s

Yes, they were destroyed in 1991.

No, I don't care for his elitist personality. Every time he's interviewed it's always "The majority of people agree with us!". Just shut up with that.

It's sad people care more about speeches than results. Let's remember her husband is a great orator and yet, he failed to destroy Iraq's WMDs, failed to rid the world of Bin Laden, caused the housing bubble, and was involved in multiple ethical issues.

Hard to destroy something that doesn't exist.
