    The thread wasn't about the Iraq war, or the war itself. It had nothing to do with anything you were trolling, successfully, for. What good does waving those numbers around do for you? The thread, and the discussion, is NOT about numbers. The numbers are not the important part.

    I'm not, and never did, say you should feel especially bad for Americans over Iraqis. We never mentioned anything about Iraq, or Iraqi's. We were talking about (something you emphasize a LOT) a TERRORIST group attacking Americans. That's. fucking. It. The entire point of the thread. and you missed it, clouded by any opportunity to throw in your arrogant opinionated posts.

    It's disgusting. It's clear you hate America and everything/everyone in it. You don't need to throw your opinions everywhere you can squeeze them just to prove it. We get it, I promise. Your posts were not appropriate for or pertaining to the OP. At all.

The same logic should apply here. The resultant wars have caused far more military and civilian deaths. Falling vending machines have killed more Americans total in the last ten years than terrorism, including 9/11, and yet no day of rememberance is given.

    Death is death, and glorifying and giving rememberance to one means, especially one that was not a personal, alturistic choice, as better than another is a sham.
    The thing is, death is never equal. Columbine was not close to me, so if the thread OP was "Remember Columbine, where were you when it happened? how did you feel?" I would not be able to post in the thread other than a brief, "I'm sorry it happened and prayed for the families." Spending time mourning every specific incident is pointless for one mere person.. we tend to mourn what is close to us. What we do as mankind is feel bad for things that personally move and affect us. In a way, the deaths get mourned equally.. the people who were really close enough to care beforehand mourn in the aftermath. Secondary support is lended to those not affected but still sympathetic. In the individual person, deaths around the world is NOT equal. Ever.

    But, looking at the world united, the deaths are not forgotten and are properly mourned.

    It's fine that 9/11 wasn't close to you, or anyone else. But people are turning it into a pissing contest about who can care less, or stressing how much it doesn't affect anyone, it isn't really respectful at all to BRMC, who made the post. It's missing the entire point of the thread.

    I didn't say, "Not funny" because I thought he was joking. I said it because I was pointing out that he was trolling. This is not the first thread where he's made posts to blatantly push his hate-America-and-hope-they-all-die agenda. It just isn't appropriate in that thread.

    The key words here are In Your Opinion. As in, your opinion is probably not the only, and solitary, correct way. Why do you even need to judge which lives are worth more than others in the first place?

    saying that muslims did it is kinda the same as talking about christians when some fucked up cult commits mass suicide or something like that..
    And if you bothered to read. She said that muslims would not receive so much unnecessary hate as they do now if terrorists, who happened to be muslim, had not blown up the towers. You were correcting her on something she already said.

    Why not the single mother of five kids by five different fathers? I place an unusually small burden on the planet and the rest of humankind. I would have a much smaller impact than a family of five, no? n1currs, lol, thats so fucking stupid....must be another generation z thing.

    Default The Tone and the Topic

    But listening to the tone of the previous topic, one would think the aerial attack on New York happened to you personally.

    But why should we be surprised. It was another outpouring, an abreation, of narcissism.

    But it wasn't attack on you personally, it was an attack by the Islamists on the West.

    And America can't face this."Why do they hate us", they ask. And two American Presidents have flown in the face of the facts and told us the Islam is a religion of peace.

    But things are changing. Just yesterday a government report came out in America detailing the extent of home grown Jihadi.

    It takes a long time for America to wake up but then is woken a sleeping giant.

    I think arsenic at a major city's water source would be best.

    Cause they're ones who'll finance our retirements; and we don't want them too embittered that they send us off to one of those old folks' homes with an abusive staff.

    Hey I like your thinking. But don't the enviromentalists complain about the huge amounts of arsenic in our water supplies? Oh wait.

    i think she didnt say it in totally correct way, so i had a urge to correct her. like i mentioned its pretty much the same when referring that terrorist group as muslims as it is for example talking about christians when talking about peoples temple cult for example.

    that post doesent really make any sense. if people who like to do good for this planet kill themselves, then there will be only the bad people left who will ruin this planet even faster. not to mention that its not that many people who actually would like to do something to save this planet.
