Foley is a Fake

The Matrix 18

Kidnapped in Libya, got away. Kidnapped in Syria, "beheaded".

Orange jump suit? Not even b-movie material. Edited from hours of footage, Photoshopped and Premiered to forensic nonsense - and hey! Look, they cut a different place than the "severed head" was separated.

He is probably dead. That's what happens to CIA screws.

You remember, don't you? Like Nick Berg...

It's all fake, turtles. All the way down.

Hey, even James Bond couldn't escape from the North Koreans. They had to trade him out.

Snide.

But do background on Foley and Berg. Seriously.

Who do you think you're writing to? Smitty doesn't do reading any more. He was told it was a liberal mind-control tool so he avoids it at all costs. You'll need to get it posted to a conservative video blog for him to care about it or consider it to be factual.

With over 70% of Americans opposed to any new foreign military action, the war machine has to do something to gin up the next glorious Middle East AIPAC adventure. Defense spending doesn't grow on trees, you know. Well, it does, but sometimes you have to spread a little fertilizer to make those trees grow.

Re:We have always been at war... (1)

Jeremiah Cornelius (137) | about a month ago | (#47744501)

It ain't about foreign wars.

It's about locking up unrest at home. Those evil, ISIS guys we gave weapons? They could be your neighbors! They are able to operate anywhere, anytime! They have Mexican drug-cartels (boogey-man II) in their pocket!

Re:We have always been at war... (1)

Yeah, I guess. Keeping people in line using military hardware seems to be a growth industry all over the world. I'm not sure I believe our overlords even see borders any more.

Not since Teddy Roosevelt... Well, not since, like, ever, but borders were never meant to be universally applied. Kinda funny when it all coincides with the big rise in nationalism we are witnessing throughout.

He wasn't. He was just a Catholic Boy, a foolish young man who thought that Islam was a peaceful religion. He was trying to tell the story of the street both times he was captured.

Islam is a fake.

Re:Except (1)

Jeremiah Cornelius (137) | about a month ago | (#47745851)

Bigotry.

How many Muslims do you know? How many are there in the world? What miniscule fraction write screeds and take up arms?

Catholicism has the bloody destruction and enslavement of the Americas on it's conquistador hands. Islam - past and present - has nothing to shade that, by way of comparison.

It is interesting to note that Ghengiz Khan was a worshiper of nature-spirit, but almost half his armies were Buddhist - His first wife was oriental Orthodox, as were a substantial minority contingent of the Mongol horde and leadership. Papal emissaries were entertained by the Khan and later his grandson Guyuk was in correspondence with the pontiff.

The "muslims" that you see and read about with violent conversion and conquest? They are created, inflated and supplied by the various trans-national agencies and alliances in Global para-politics.

"What miniscule fraction write screeds and take up arms"

Approximately 10%. But that's not the reason I say Islam is a fake. The reason I say Islam is a fake is because as a theology, it can be used to justify everything from Sufi to ISIS and everything in between. There is no coherent morality to Islam, because Allah himself, as portrayed in the Koran, is not a faithful God, is not coherent from verse to verse.

A similar problem can be found in the Old Testament, and has inspired an awful lot of fundamentalism and atheism in Christianity and Judaism, perhaps the extreme example that can be found in our time, and a close cousin to the violence of ISIS, is Zionism in Israel.

"Catholicism has the bloody destruction and enslavement of the Americas on it's conquistador hands."

Yes.

"Islam - past and present - has nothing to shade that, by way of comparison."

Have you paid attention to what has been happening in Africa in the last 150 years?

"The "muslims" that you see and read about with violent conversion and conquest? They are created, inflated and supplied by the various trans-national agencies and alliances in Global para-politics."

They've been in existence far longer- the Sunni/Shi'a split happened within a generation of the death of the Prophet.

Re:Except (1)

Jeremiah Cornelius (137) | about a month ago | (#47785819)

You see what you want to see.

Just one point: Africa is in the aftermath of Colonial destruction and neon-colonial extraction. That has far more relevance than the practice of religion.

All people on earth are made of the same mixture of inclinations and inspirations. The mental proposition of a theology does little to change this, but provides one framework for justifying how desires are fulfilled.

God's grace arrives as a mystical occurrence, not the mental and emotional identification with theological proposition. "Morality" is how one behaves towards the creation, so that the opportunity to recognise the arrival of this grace is not clouded, or missed. Nobody can direct God, all are at the quality of absolute mercy. That is the root of real humility - the moral virtue from which all others are sustained.

"Just one point: Africa is in the aftermath of Colonial destruction and neon-colonial extraction. That has far more relevance than the practice of religion."

The proper way to deal with that is localism, not killing off everybody who isn't Islamic (every African Genocide in the last 50 years has been Islamic in origin).

"All people on earth are made of the same mixture of inclinations and inspirations. The mental proposition of a theology does little to change this, but provides one framework for justifying how desires are fulfilled."

Yes, and solidarity/subsidiarity works far better than the crescent sword.

"God's grace arrives as a mystical occurrence,"

Or through the self-sacrifice of millions of martyrs to the cause of peace.

You have taken the indoctrination (1)

Jeremiah Cornelius (137) | about 1 month ago | (#47795779)

Intended to divide. You speak of a solidarity - but argue for the conceptualization of an "other".
